Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson's vision is improving, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.
Huddle Up: Robinson is still in the early stages of learning the running back position, having been an option quarterback in college and a receiver earlier in his NFL career. He's already pretty good, as evidenced by back-to-back 100-yard games; adding vision to his repertoire will only increase his chances of success.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson was recently lauded by head coach Gus Bradley. Bradley said Robinson is extremely competitive and the drive to succeed and get better came from within for Robinson.
Huddle Up: Robinson rolled up a surprising 127 rushing yards on 22 carries Sunday after coming into the contest will all of 160 career rushing yards on 48 attempts. He'll be a hot pickup this week, but be aware that we very well could've seen Robinson's best game given the season-long struggles the Jags have had running the ball all season.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson rushed 22 times for 127 yards in the Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 19. He was the team's first 100-yard rusher in almost a calendar year. Head coach Gus Bradley was somewhat vague when asked if Robinson would keep the featured back role. 'Yeah, I think so. We'll look at the film. He did a good job and we hope to get Toby (Gerhart) back,' Bradley said.
Huddle Up: Maybe Robinson shares some of the workload with a healthy Gerhart or with Storm Johnson, but after Sunday's showing Robinson certainly looks to be the Jaguars' back of the future--both next week and next season.

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.
