Demarcus Robinson wants to show he can 'put up 1,000 yards a year'

Demarcus Robinson appeared on NFL Network's Good Morning Football Thursday. The receiver expects more targets with Sammy Watkins now in Baltimore, saying, "I'm looking for the opportunity - not for them to give me the opportunity - but go in there and take the opportunity. Go in there and show that I am a guy who can put up 1,000 yards a year and 10 touchdowns. I'm ready to make that happen. They said they've got something in store for me. I'm ready to show them."

Fantasy Impact:

Robinson posted career highs last season. He totaled 45 receptions on 59 targets, 466 receiving yards, and three touchdowns. Although those numbers were career highs, they are nowhere near Robinson's lofty goals for this season. Sammy Watkins, however, vacates a 13.9% target share (5.5 targets per game) and Mecole Hardman hasn't lived up to his second-round draft pick expectation. So, Robinson's an intriguing dart throw late in fantasy drafts with a viable path to become the Chiefs' No. 2 receiver and third passing option in the pecking order behind Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.
