Denard Robinson | WR | Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson more than doubled his previous high in snaps in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts, and his emergence is cutting into the playing time of RB Toby Gerhart. Head coach Gus Bradley said this week that Robinson has earned more reps and will continue to get them going forward.
Huddle Up: Robinson isn't ready for full feature-back duties just yet, but he will take a bite out of Gerhart's workload as a change-of-pace back--especially if he remains effective in that role while Gerhart continues to struggle.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson will start to receive more targets in the near future. He had eight carries for 33 yards in Week 3. 'I think that Denard has really showed to us during the last three weeks that he's earned the opportunity to get more reps,' head coach Gus Bradley said. 'We made a conscious decision this past week to get him more opportunities and he did a pretty good job so that will continue.'
Huddle Up: The Jaguars are desperately seeking playmakers, and to this point Toby Gerhart has not delivered. Robinson may not be ready for a feature back workload, but he certainly has the talent to shine in a complementary role. Not sure he's worth a pickup in all but the largest of fantasy leagues at this juncture, but it's not as if Gerhart has all the backfield touches in Jacksonville locked down.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (hand) has had an excellent offseason after recovering from a right hand injury last year, according to general manager David Caldwell. 'All offseason I've been working on regaining strength in my hand,' Robinson said. 'I feel comfortable now where I can make plays happen without thinking.' Caldwell noted that Robinson has been catching everything thrown his way in offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Robinson, converted from QB as a fifth-round pick last season, had 20 rushes and attempted one pass but surprisingly did not record a reception in his rookie campaign. His versatility is a big plus, but he's going to need to extend his strong offseason into training camp with the added competition at WR this season.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson weighed around 212 pounds when he reported for offseason workouts. Robinson was around 197 pounds but added the weight because he will only be a running back moving forward.
Huddle Up: The 2013 5th-round pick only saw 20 rushes for 66 yards and had no receptions as a rookie last season, but it sounds like he's bulking up for a bigger role this fall.
