The Chiefs have agreed to a 1-year deal to keep WR DeMarcus Robinson, ESPN reports. The 25-year-old must not have found much interest on the open market. He returns to an offense that has allowed him to increase receptions and yards per catch each of the past 3 years. Robinson will have trouble continuing that trend in WR Mecole Hardman's 2nd season, with Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins also still around. Robinson's return also complicates the outlook for Hardman. Robinson was still playing more snaps than the rookie in the playoffs. We'll take Hardman easily over Robinson in 2020 fantasy football drafts, though. The youngster's speed gives him much more fantasy-scoring upside.
The Chiefs went with WR Demarcus Robinson in the 4th round of the 2016 draft. Robinson’s college career at Florida was marred by 4 suspensions. He posted a 53-810-7 line in 2014 but dropped to 47-520-2 this past year. Robinson goes 6’1, 203 pounds with a SPARQ score in the 55th percentile, so there’s some upside here. He’ll battle with Chris Conley and Albert Wilson for playing time behind Jeremy Maclin.
