Bijan Robinson

21-Year-Old Running BackRB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Robinson is the consensus RB1 of the 2023 rookie class and arrives to the NFL with a fantasy-friendly skill set. He has a workhorse build at 215-plus pounds, and with a 4.46-second 40 Robinson has the speed to create big plays at a standout frequency. Not just that, but Robinson appears adept as a pass catcher and could do more as an NFL receiver than he did at Texas. While Robinson's single-season high for receptions at Texas was just 26, there's reason to think that in the NFL Robinson could be a 60-catch candidate annually. It's not often that a running back prospect projects for volume, efficiency and versatility to the extent that Robinson does -- and his status as the eighth overall pick further confirms that. He does have decent competition for carries in Atlanta, but within the confines of a run-heavy offense and with the possibility of Cordarrelle Patterson being a cap casualty this summer. While 2022 fifth-round pick Tyler Allgeier figures to retain some sort of role after running for 1,000 yards as a rookie, Robinson is on a different level of talent and shouldn't need long to establish himself as the lead back.

Taken eighth overall by Atlanta
RBAtlanta Falcons
April 27, 2023
The Falcons selected Robinson in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, eighth overall.
Robinson (5-foot-11, 215 pounds) is the highest running back selection since Saquon Barkley went fifth in 2018. Like Barkley, Robinson is expected to be a three-down workhorse and a standout pass-catching threat, a setup that should allow him to become one of the top fantasy running backs in a hurry. Tyler Allgeier might be overqualified as a backup runner with Robinson now in Atlanta, but talent like Robinson's demands the first and second opportunity. With 4.46 speed and an exceptionally productive collegiate career to his credit, the former Texas back seems like a potential star at the position.
