I’d say his floor is what we’ve seen the first 3 weeks. They have been down early in every game and have only led for 2 minutes in 180 minutes of play.
Just imagine if they ever got got a lead for a majority of a game.
Fair. Week one is a good floor for him. But that's my point. That's not a great floor.
Joe Mixon owners would be pretty thrilled with 10 pts right now.
Robinson is fine. If your floor is 16 carries and a decent chance at 3-4 points in the receiving game, then you are a textbook RB2.
Robinson is also a fine pass-blocker (ignoring what I saw in that video - all RBs get blown up eventually), so his third down usage can only increase. Especially as Thompson continues to prove he is washed.
