- Travis Etienne’s injury resulted in James Robinson’s season totals sky rocketing.
- Gus Edwards saw an increase in expected totals after J.K. Dobbins’ season-ending injury.
LAS VEGAS – Travis Etienne and J.K. Dobbins have both suffered season-ending injuries which resulted in James Robinson and Gus Edwards seeing a major uptick in season totals. Just how much have the lines moved?
James Robinson’s Odds Movement
The Jacksonville Jaguars faced some criticism after drafting Travis Etienne in the first round of the NFL draft after James Robinson had one of the greatest undrafted free agent rookie seasons of all time. Etienne was expected to have a big role in the offense, but now that he’s out for the season, Robinson resumes his lead-back role.
James Robinson Rush Yards Pre Injury
- Over 670.5 -170
- Under 670.5 +130
James Robinson Rush Yards Post Injury
- Over 1025.5 -110
- Under 1025.5 -130
In 2020, Robinson ran for 1,070 yards and NFL betting sites are expecting a similar output in the 2021 season. Despite being in a new offense under Urban Meyer, Robinson should be slated for one of the largest workloads in the NFL, especially with a rookie quarterback starting.
Gus Edwards’ Line Movement
Gus Edwards is quietly one of the most efficient running backs in the NFL. He is one of just six RBs to have 700+ rushing yards in each of the last three seasons along with Aaron Jones, Derrick Henry, Nick Chubb, Alvin Kamara and Ezekiel Elliot. Now, with J.K. Dobbins missing the season, Edwards seemingly owns the starting job.
Gus Edwards Rush Yards Pre Injury
- Over 600.5 -110
- Under 600.5 -110
Gus Edwards Rush Yards Post Injury
- Over 1000.5 -120
- Under 1000.5 -110
Edwards was seventh in the NFL in yards per attempt with 5.0 last season and had the 10th-highest average yards after contact (3.3). With Lamar Jackson now being his primary competition for rushes, these totals set by online sportsbooks may still be too low.
