Bijan Robinson Living Up to the Hype

Heading into the 2023 regular season, the expectations were sky high for Falcons rookie RB Bijan Robinson in his first year in the NFL. Not only did he land in an offense with an excellent run blocking O-line, but also the offense with the head coach perhaps most notorious for his commitment to the ground game. That, combined with uncertainty at QB, set the bar high for Robinson – and heading into Week 3, he’s easily clearing it.

Bijan has transcended Arthur Smith and come through on his very high price in fantasy drafts!

Robinson currently leads the NFL among all running backs in rushes of 10+ yards while averaging 6.2 yards per carry. That’s while splitting work in the ground game with Tyler Allgeier, and in addition to work that he’s receiving in the receiving game, as well.

To put it into perspective just how effective he’s been for the Falcons and his fantasy managers through two weeks: Bijan is also third in the NFL among running backs in total receiving yards and first in total receptions among running backs. There’s even room for him to improve! If the backfield shifts any more in his favor (and there’s room for that to happen), Bijan could have the inside track on the overall RB1 spot this season.
