Brian Robinson Jr. Finds End Zone During Blowout Loss

Sunday, January 7, 8:18 PM

Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. had nine carries for 25 yards and a lost fumble along with three receptions for 10 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Robinson once again operated as the lead rusher for Washington in Week 18. Unfortunately, the Commanders fell behind quickly and didn't have a game script that favored the run game. However, Robinson did save his day with a touchdown reception early in the second quarter, Washington's only touchdown of the game. With the offseason ahead, the hope is that the Commanders can help their weapons by creating a better environment for offensive success than the one seen this year.

Kyren Williams Has Surgery On Broken Hand

Wednesday, January 17, 12:53 PM

Los Angeles Rams running back Kyren Williams (hand) had successful surgery on Tuesday to fix a broken bone in his hand, according to head coach Sean McVay. Williams broke a bone in his hand in Sunday night's one-point wild-card loss to the Detroit Lions, but he'll have plenty of time to heal up before the start of the 2024 regular season. The 23-year-old moved into a starting role in LA's backfield in Week 2 of the 2023 campaign after the Rams traded Cam Akers away. Williams had a career year, carrying the ball 228 times for 1,144 yards and 12 touchdowns while also logging 32 receptions (48 targets) for 206 yards and three more scores in just 12 regular-season games played. He could have more competition for touches in 2024 in the Rams' backfield, but Williams should remain the lead back, which will give him at least high-end RB2 upside in fantasy drafts.
