|Jonas Gray the Patriots top big back||10-25-2014|
|Jonas Gray RB NE|
ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss confirms Jonas Gray now projects as the Patriots top "big back."
|Gray is ahead of both Brandon Bolden and James White. The 2012 UDFA out of Notre Dame was expected to have a bigger role than the three carries he got in Week 7, but the Patriots got absolutely dominated in time of possession and didn't want to challenge the Jets' elite run defense. In different game-flow situations, Gray could have a real role. He's worth adding in deeper formats.|
|Jags not sure if Denard can handle big work||10-25-2014|
|Denard Robinson RB JAX|
A source tells ESPN Jags reporter Mike DiRocco that the coaches "still aren't sure if [Denard] Robinson is capable of handling a heavy workload each week."
|Robinson ripped apart the Browns' atrocious run defense last week for 22-127-1 and has earned another start. Don't expect 20-carry games to become the norm. The 197-pound "Shoelace" typically won't have gameflow on his side and also Toby Gerhart (foot) is coming back this week to pair with third-down back Jordan Todman. Furthermore, the Jags bottom-five offensive line is going to have its hands more than full with a very strong Dolphins front this week.|
