Laurent Robinson injury: Fantasy stock improving with regular role expected Thursday

Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE

Laurent Robinson is expected to play a regular role when the Jaguars take on the Colts on Thursday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Laurent Robinson did not suffer a setback in his return from multiple concussions during Sunday's game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Detroit Lions. He caught six passes for 41 yards off nine targets. After playing 45 offensive snaps, Robinson is expected to return to a regular role with the offense, according to the South Florida Times-Union.

Through appearances in five games this season, Robinson has 15 catches for 175 yards and no touchdowns. Last Sunday, he saw his most targets since being also being targeted nine times in the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson said he didn't suffer a setback on an early scare last week, when he landed on his head following a hit from a Lions defender. He appears to be healthy for the time being, and deserves some fantasy consideration if continues to be targeted like he was Sunday.

Consider Robinsinson a potential WR3/Flex option in standard leagues if a bye week is leaving you short on depth. He may even be more valuable than that in PPR leagues. Robinson has yet to show he is capable of winning fantasy matchups on his own, however.
