News: With reporting that Mark Ingram is expected to miss about a month with a hand injury suffered in Sunday's game against the Browns, Robinson is expected to be the most likely beneficiary while Ingram is sidelined. Impact: Ingram has started the year red hot, emphatically laying claim to the majority of the Saints' rushing workload, with Robinson seemingly relegated to a backup role. With Ingram's injury, however, Robinson should see the majority of the carries out of the Saints' backfield. Pierre Thomas will almost certainly tote the ball some as well, but Thomas is still likely to serve as more of a receiving option, while Robinson, a talented runner who impressed when pressed into action in last year's playoffs, should receive a significantly increased workload.(RotoWire, )

News: Robinson had eight carries for 31 yards Sunday against the Browns. Impact: Robinson finished with only three fewer carries than Mark Ingram, but the latter had 52 more yards when all was said-and-done. Robinson is clearly in the backup role in New Orleans, and he doesn't catch passes like Pierre Thomas. There's upside if Ingram were to succumb to injury, but right now, Robinson is the weakest option of the three Saints running backs for fantasy purposes.(RotoWire, )

News: Robinson took only 12 of the Saints' 75 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss in Atlanta, Mike Triplett of reports. Meanwhile, Pierre Thomas was on the field for 34 snaps, Mark Ingram for 20, and Travaris Cadet for 12. Impact: Robinson played well in limited time, gaining 28 yards on six carries (4.7 YPC) and converting a short touchdown. Since coach Sean Payton took over in 2006, however, the Saints have deployed a committee approach to their backfield distribution, and Triplett expects a similar snap distribution all year. Robinson appeared to be the preferred back in the first half, but he took a backseat to Ingram and Thomas thereafter. Although Robinson will surely have some nice days in the future, his scattered workload as part of a committee in a pass-happy offense could lead to frustratingly inconsistent results for the talented young runner.(RotoWire, )

News: Robinson had six carries for 28 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Falcons. Impact: Robinson banged home a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter to give the Saints a 13-0 lead, but he sat back and watched Mark Ingram rush for two fourth-quarter touchdowns, while Pierre Thomas grabbed seven carries for 31 yards. It looks very much like a committee-approach in New Orleans, with Ingram getting the most carries and Thomas getting plenty of looks in the passing game, which doesn't leave Robinson with much else. He'll likely continue to have a role each game, but his workload may be frustratingly inconsistent.(RotoWire, )
