Shark Bites

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bucs. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. That’s an improvement over last week, when he only practiced on Friday before playing 92% of the offensive snaps vs. the Packers. Robinson should be fine for Sunday’s game in Tampa.

The Athletic's Mark Kaboly lists WR Allen Robinson as one of the Steelers' offseason winners. Robinson "impressed in every facet, especially in the slot at the goal line," Kaboly writes. "The move to the slot appears to be natural for Robinson. He’s shifty and has a knack for finding space in tight red zone areas, which could lead to some easy touchdowns. ... It sure seems to me that Robinson is going to be a big part of the team’s success this year." Fantasy owners should be skeptical considering Robinson drew praise from Rams beat writers last summer before turning in an abysmal 2022 season. He's still not a priority target in fantasy drafts, even at his dirt-cheap price tag. But we'll continue to keep a close eye on Robinson when training camp opens next month.

Steelers WR Allen Robinson is “not yet involved in all team activities,” per beat writer Brian Batko. Robinson underwent foot surgery for a stress fracture around the start of December. The 30-year-old (in August) isn’t someone to circle as a late-round flier.

The Rams are finalizing a trade to send WR Allen Robinson to the Steelers, pending Robinson passing a physical. No word yet on the compensation, but the Rams probably aren't getting much. Robinson is set to count $18 million against the 2023 salary cap and has been one of the least efficient WRs in the NFL over the past two seasons. He ranked 86th out of 101 qualifying WRs in yards per route run in 2021 and 90th out of 96 last year. Robinson figures to slide in as Pittsburgh's #3 WR behind Diontae Johnson and George Pickens. He's not an exciting fantasy pick. The Rams, meanwhile, are left with Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell, and Ben Skowronek atop the WR depth chart. We'll see if they add to the position.

Update: Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Steelers are getting Robinson and the 251st overall pick of this year's draft in exchange for the 234th overall pick. The Rams are also paying $10.25 million of Robinson’s salary. The Steelers will pay the remaining $5 million. If you needed confirmation that Robinson's tank is empty, there you go.

Rams WR Allen Robinson will undergo season-ending foot surgery, HC Sean McVay said after Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it's a stress fracture. So that ends a wildly disappointing 2022 season for Robinson that saw him average just 3.3 catches and 34 yards per game. Through Week 10, he ranked 79th among 85 qualifying WRs in yards per route run. We're not optimistic about Robinson's odds of bouncing back next season.

Rams WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. Los Angeles will roll out WRs Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek, Brandon Powell, Tutu Atwell and Lance McCutcheon.
