NFL Week 15 – Running Back Sit/Start Report

Denard Robinson should provide a big boost for fantasy owners during Week 15

Denard Robinson should provide a big boost for fantasy owners during Week 15

Start – Denard Robinson:  With rookie T.J. Yeldon sidelined, Robinson will be the feature back for the Jaguars on Sunday. Last season, when Robinson was the feature back and received double digit touches, he averaged 70 rush yards per game and scored four touchdowns. Robinson’s first crack at a lead back role will be against the porous Atlanta defense that is allowing the second most fantasy points per game to opposing runners. If you picked up Robinson off waivers this week, get him in your lineup ASAP.

Start – Matt Forte:  Forte is in a full-blown timeshare, but still manages to put up viable numbers for his fantasy owners. This week, Forte draws a tough matchup heading on the road to take on the Vikings stingy defense. Last time Forte and the Vikings met, he accumulated just 53 total yards from scrimmage. However, don’t let the numbers discourage you. If you have Forte, there may not be a better option on your roster. Forte has also been Mr. Reliable for you when healthy. Roll the dice on the wily veteran and believe in him turning out good fortune for your team.

Sit – Javorious Allen:  Unsurprisingly, Allen had a tough go against the Seahawks in Seattle. Well now he’s on the road again to face off against a revitalized Chiefs defense. Kansas City is the fifth best defense at limiting the run and first in receiving yards allowed to running backs. There are most certainly better options that Allen for week 15. If you want to keep your season alive, choose wisely and sit him.
