BUY Allen Robinson, WR, Bears
It’s been a rocky start for Robinson, who’s sitting outside the top 50 WRs in fantasy points and reportedly asked the Bears for a trade last week.
Those trade demands have subsided, though. And Robinson’s usage has been just fine. His 18 targets through 2 games are tied for 10th most among WRs.
The problem? QB play. Only 47% of Robinson’s targets have been deemed catchable by Pro Football Focus. (He’s caught all of those.) Mitchell Trubisky isn’t playing that poorly. He’s completed a decent 59.4% of his passes. And 65.6% of his throws have been deemed “on target,” per Pro Football Reference.
In other words, Robinson has just been unlucky to see a bunch of Trubisky’s bad throws so far. That’ll normalize. And remember that Nick Foles is hanging around if Trubisky bombs.
We still like Robinson to flirt with WR1 production this season. See if you can acquire him now on the cheap.
