Laurent Robinson returns to practice, but won't take contact: Fantasy implications

Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE

Laurent Robinson returned to practice for the Jaguars on Wednesday, but still has yet to be cleared for contact as he makes his way back from a concussion. We break down the fantasy implications.

Laurent Robinson returned to practice for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday, but still has yet to take contact according to John Oehser of the Jags' official site. The Jaguars will continue to evaluate the wide receiver to determine his availability.

Robinson has been on the mend since suffering a concussion in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Through four games played this season, he has nine receptions for 134 yards off 17 targets.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson has passed his concussion tests, opening him up to the possibility of playing this weekend against the Green Bay Packers. He will need to take contact first, however, so be sure to keep a close eye on injury reports.

Even if he is cleared, it would be major risk starting Robinson in any fantasy format this week. He has a considerable amount of rust to shake off, not to mention the fact that he is playing in an offense that ranks dead last in the NFL averaging 145 yards passing per game.
