Training Camp Update: Khiry Robinson Making an Impact Early
Khiry Robinson the second year running back out of West Texas A&M is hoping for an increased role this season in the crowded Saints backfield. New Orleans uses multiple running backs in every game, and with Darren Sproles being traded away to Philadelphia, Robinson hopes to hear his numbered called upon more often in 2014. In his rookie season, Robinson rushed for 224 yards and one touchdown, modest numbers for his modest playing time.
If Robinson can prove to be a dependable pass blocker for Drew Brees, he should see more time on the field. Head Coach Sean Payton has started to give Robinson the chance he needs early in training camp (getting reps with the ones and twos). With Pierre Thomas entrenched as the number one back, there is opportunity behind him for touches, and it will come down to Robinson, first round disappointment Mark Ingram, and Travaris Cadet for that playing time.
Robinson has the ability to both run and catch, as he had over 2,000 yards from scrimmage his senior year in college. The New Orleans offense is one of the most explosive in the NFL, so keep an eye on Robinson throughout camp, if he can get a consistent amount of touches behind Thomas he’ll be worth a draft pick in every league.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/training-camp-update-khiry-robinson-making-an-impact-early/FF AnalysisFootballKhiry Robinson the second year running back out of West Texas A&M is hoping for an increased role this season in the crowded Saints backfield.
