0.3 fantasy points. That’s the total production that Bijan Robinson’s fantasy managers were blindsided with Sunday afternoon, and it came in a week where the Falcons were having all kinds of trouble moving the ball on offense. Kyle Pitts was able to do his best Robinson impression, catching a ball behind his back with one hand, but that was sweet little for managers who ended up with an unexpected bullet hole in their lineup.
Robinson saw just 11 snaps on the day while handling the ball just once for 3 yards. That lone touch came extremely late in the game, while teammates Tyler Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson split reps to pick up the slack in Robinson’s stead. Allgeier was the primary beneficiary of Robinson’s absence, as expected, handling 21 attempts on the ground and garnering 3 targets on the day. Patterson racked up 10 carries rotationally.
Robinson shouldn’t be immediately expected to miss any more time like he did against the Buccaneers moving forward, but monitor reports coming out of Atlanta this week ahead of the Falcons’ Week 8 matchup against the Titans. If Robinson wouldn’t be able to go for any reason, expect Allgeier to be bumped up into the RB2 conversation – but fantasy managers should assume for the time being that Robinson will be back to normal come next Sunday.
