Denard Robinson shows some flashes, still has work to do for fantasy owners

Denard Robinson didn't get too much action in his first professional game, but it wasn't a bad start. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jaguars running back Denard Robinson made his pro debut on Friday night, finishing with nine carries for 32 yards in Friday's game against the Dolphins.

He was second on the depth chart and Jordan Todman got the snaps with the first string in the loss. Although, Maurice Jones-Drew and Justin Forsett both sat out of this game due to injuries, so that means Robinson is fourth on the depth chart under normal circumstances.

Fantasy impact: There's really not a whole lot to love about a fourth-string back. Robinson did have some nice moves in the game and showed he's able to take care of business in the open field. The team listed him as an "offensive weapon" earlier this summer, but the Jaguars are probably going to holster him for the most part. They will need a slew of injuries for D-Rob to get enough snaps to matter. He might have a big play every once in a while, but he's not worth drafting in almost all leagues.
