After sitting out all week of practice, running back James Robinson will not play on Sunday for the Jaguars against the Bears.
The NFL’s third-leading rusher has been nursing an ankle injury and with Jacksonville having nothing to play for — and incentive to lose — he won’t be pushed.
The Jaguars are also starting Mike Glennon at quarterback instead of Gardner Minshew. While Minshew probably wasn’t in fantasy football plans this week, Robinson certainly was.
Dare Ogunbowale is expected to replace Robinson in the backfield. Devine Ozigbo should also see some carries.
They were both projected into Sean Koerner’s fantasy tiers with the possibility early in the week that Robinson would sit.
Ogunbowale is in Koerner’s 8th tier; Ozigbo is in the 9th tier.
From Koerner’s rankings: “Dare O. would be the priority add and provide RB3/Flex value.”

If you’d prefer a different option than a Jacksonville replacement, Mike Randle’s waiver wire story from this week includes Tony Pollard, Gus Edwards, Salvon Ahmed and Lynn Bowden Jr.
From our waiver wire story on Bowden:
Bowden is simply a desperation Week 16 play with possible running back eligibility depending on your fantasy platform.
He saw a team-high seven targets and led Miami with six receptions. Bowden actually led the Dolphins in both receptions (seven) and receiving yards (82).
Bowden in an intriguing RB3/4 play in deeper leagues, especially with a rookie “revenge game” narrative at Las Vegas.
