Denard Robinson is now up to 552 yards on 125 carries for the season, 4.4 yard average. Great to see him having some success and hope he continues to improve and build on what he is doing this season.
As far as running backs picked ahead of him in 2013...
Giovani Bernard - 540 yards, 4.0 avg
Le'Veon Bell - 1,046 yards, 4.8 avg
Montee Ball - 172 yards, 3.1 avg
Eddie Lacy - 770 yards, 4.4 avg
Christine Micheal - 112 yards, 6.2 avg
Knile Davis - 423, 3.7 avg
Jacksonville got a steal in the 5th round. Way to go Denard! Keep smiling and thank you for 2011 so we at least can hold on to those recent memories.
Let me know what I missed, or if you have any more insight that I can add.

108 yards on 18 carries and a catch for 10.
NFL is stupid about embeding highlights, but check out video of his 40 yard run here: http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2014102603/2014/REG8/dolphins@jaguars#menu=drivechart&tab=videos
They laughed when I drafted Denard in the last round of our 14-team league. They made fun of me when injuries and byes pressed him into a starting spot at RB. And then:
I didn't see this posted anywhere on the board (and I've never been able to go back past the first page of topics): After checking my fantasy team I saw some news on Denard (I've picked him as Mr Irrelevant for the 2nd year) - he beat out Jordan Todman and is now listed as the backup to Toby Gerhart (the Jags annouced it yesterday).
One notable position: running back, where Denard Robinson – a second-year veteran – is the backup behindToby Gerhart. Robinson had been competing with Jordan Todman and rookie Storm Johnson for the backup role in training camp.
Basketball on Grass.
Denard Robinson has 305 yards passing with 3 TD and 2 INT and 62 yards rushing – in three quarters! Roy Roundtree sets a Michigan receiving record with 246 yards. Tate Forcier leads a late 4thquarter drive to tie the game.
6th win of the season made us (wait for it...) Bowl Eligible!
The highest scoring game in Michigan history ends with a defensive stop in the 3rdOT.
