You aren't devaluing Swift or Akers though. Your reevaluating and assessing the price on a player that has one of the most unique starts we've seen for a RB. You can say whatever you want about his reason for getting so many touches, but he has proven that he can handle it, so Ozigbo won't get more than 5 carries a game if he gets any at all. Armstead isn't worth considering at this point. He wasn't there all preseason and it doesn't look like he'll be playing this season in any fashion.Sriracha wrote: ↑Thu Oct 01, 2020 1:34 pmI can't say that I agree with this take. It's been 3 games where he's seen a near 100% opportunity share because Ryquell Armstead and Devine Ozigbo (2 RBs that split 1st team reps with him in training camp) are on IRjjleurquin wrote: ↑Thu Oct 01, 2020 12:59 pmI'm not sure how you can be wrong about something we don't know about yet. Again I said most people probably wouldn't pay that, but that's the value you should be getting if you were to deal him. This makes him a hold for me and I'm sure most people would hold because they aren't going to get enough.SteveMaddensShoes wrote: ↑Thu Oct 01, 2020 5:16 am
That's wrong. We've gone over why plenty in the other threads. Just chiming in case someone sees this and thinks they should ship off Swift or Akers for Robinson.
If you can get Akers, Swift or a 1st though I'd be all over it. Unless you are a contender who needs him do to injuries.
Robinson has produced at this level. Akers and Swift haven't. They of course will get more opportunities don't get me wrong but we shouldn't just write off Robinson with our only argument being that he's an UDFA after what we've seen so far. This is a simple sunk cost fallacy.
That should not overcome 3 years of college production vs power 5 conferences, and a chasm of draft capital difference.
2nd day Rookie RBs have historically started out slow as they earn their team's trust and adjust to the NFL game. Devaluing Swift and Akers at this point feels extremely reactionary.. if anyone's giving me a 1st or a RB prospect like Akers or Swift for Robinson that's a heist.
Undrafted guys don't start their first game. The future looks very bright for him, the easy thing to do is just write him off as an UDFA, but the moves the Jags made combined with the opportunity he's getting and what he's doing with it is what you'd expect from an elite RB prospect. I will buy on the way up.
