The Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are tied at 10 at halftime but one player on the Falcons offense has been a non-factor and it is making fantasy football managers mad. The Falcons drafted Bijan Robinson very early in the 2023 NFL Draft and the rookie seemed to be a perfect fit in Arthur Smith's offense.

However, in the first half against the Bucs he did not have a single touch and played only six snaps. it isn't like the Falcons aren't running the ball as they had 15 carries in the first half with Tyler Allgeier leading the way with seven carries for 26 yards and Cordarrelle Patterson had six carries for 25 yards

The emergence of Patterson is certainly a big surprise as he has had only one carry so far this season before Week 7.

Arthur Smith provides an update on Bijan Robinson at halftime

Through the first six games this season, Robinson has had at least double digit carries each week but has yet to score a rushing touchdown. As Allgeier and Patterson have shown, the Bucs are giving up some yards on the ground but Arthur Smith has to call some plays specifically for Robinson to help the Falcons come away with a win on the road.

However, coming out of halftime head coach Arthur Smith provided an update on Robinson and said "just not feeling all that great", according to Tori McElhaney with the Atlanta Falcons. It does not seem like he is going to be playing much this week and anyone starting Robinson this week is going to need some other players in their lineups to have big games.
