3.) Brian Robinson Jr.

There is no doubt that Robinson has elevated himself as the clear-cut number one back for the Commanders. Out of 51 carries by the Washington run game, he has carried the ball 37 of those times. He is averaging four yards a carry, as well 73 rushing yards a game through two games.

Last week against the Broncos, Robinson rushed for 87 yards off of 18 carries and found the endzone twice. The young back has taken over the backfield in Washington and is able to get the run game going to help get quarterback Sam Howell in a better position. 

The Bills run defense was owned in Week 1 by Breece Hall and company. Then they turned it around against the Raiders, only allowing 55 total rushing yards (with Josh Jacobs finishing the game with -2 yards). The defense led by McDermott will have to find a way to keep Robinson from creating noise out of the backfield. Taking away Robinson will force the Commanders to look to Howell to be their savior to overcome the adversity.
