Fantasy owners should ride with Bijan Robinson in Week 8

After leaving his fantasy football owners frustrated last week, Bijan Robinson should get back on track this Sunday.

Last week, fantasy owners were mystified as to why the Atlanta Falcons were playing but running back Bijan Robinson, one of the top RBs in fantasy football, was hardly touching the ball. That turned to anger as the game went on and owners realized that Robinson may do absolutely nothing for their team.

He finished the game with just one carry for three yards. He was never listed on any injury report, something the league said it was going to look into, but it seems as though a headache that he got just before the game started is what really slowed Robinson down.

That's frustrating, but what do you do? Robinson for a total of 86 yards in his last three games and is certainly leaving his owners frustrated. The Falcons also like to give plenty of carries to Tyler Allgeier, including most of them inside the 10-yard line.

But at the same time, how can you sit this guy? He's still the most talented offensive player on the roster and if he is like most competitors, he is going to want to prove a point after being a complete non-factor last week against Tampa Bay.

Up next is the Tennessee Titans, who allow a touch over 100 yards rushing per game on the ground. They are a middle-of-the-pack run defense.

If you have Robinson on your team, not only are you playing him, you're playing him with confidence. He was drafted high in leagues this year because his talent is obvious and he has shown signs of that this year despite being limited by the Falcons' play-calling.

It does seem that Cordarrelle Patterson could miss the game as well as he has appeared on the team's injury report for unspecified reasons. If he is out, it would leave just Robinson and Allgeier in a game that should be a tough, field-position battle.

I like Robinson to come back with a good game this week and would not even consider leaving him out of your lineup.
