Allen Robinson takes field during OTAs

According to beat writer Brad Biggs, wide receiver Allen Robinson took the field for the first time since tearing his ACL during Week 1 of last year.

Fantasy Impact

It's a step in the right direction for the Bears No. 1 receiver, as head coach Matt Nagy said, "the mental hurdle is big" and that it's a day-by-day process. He also went on to say that he doesn't anticipate Robinson will partake in the team drills next week, but that he should be a full-go for training camp. We hear a lot of glowing reports about players coming off injury during the offseason, but hearing he's back on the field is definitely a step in the right direction.

Allen Robinson expected to sign with Bears

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Allen Robinson intends to sign with the Bears, "barring any last-minute snags."

Fantasy Impact

It's a great move for the Bears, who were desperate to find a playmaker at wide receiver to pair with QB Mitchell Trubisky. With Robinson, they land the #1 available free agent wide receiver. ARob is still only 24 years old too so his opportunity for growth as a player is significant. Even coming off of a torn ACL, Robinson should be ready for offseason activities and will be locked in as the Bears' #1 wide receiver moving forward. He'll be a WR2 in fantasy with WR1 upside.

Allen Robinson will not be franchise tagged

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars will not use their franchise tag on wide receiver Allen Robinson.

Fantasy Impact

This is massive news, though the Jaguars will apparently try to work out a long-term deal with him prior to March 12, which is when he's able to talk with other teams. The fact that the Jaguars aren't applying the tag is telling, though, as they have plenty of cap space. Robinson is going to be one of the hottest commodities in free agency, with the Chicago Bears being the most logical fit for him. Whatever happens, it's hard to see Robinson's fantasy value taking a hit through all of this. If anything, his value is likely to increase.

Allen Robinson to see franchise tag?

Jacksonville Jaguars beat writer Mike DiRocco believes the team could use the franchise tag on WR Allen Robinson this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

An impending free agent, Robinson was lost for the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL. And while he's reportedly on track in his recovery, he has a contract to worry about. However, DiRocco notes that the Jaguars don't have any other player on the roster that garners the franchise tag outside of Robinson. And, although they prefer to ink him to a one-year incentive-based, show-me deal, the Jaguars are expected to tag the wideout if the two sides are far apart on an agreement. Expect Robinson to return to Jacksonville in 2018.

Allen Robinson on track in his recovery

Jacksonville Jaguars beat writer Mike DiRocco is reporting WR Allen Robinson (ACL) is on track in his recovery from a torn ACL.

Fantasy Impact

Per DiRocco, Robinson should return to full health sooner rather than later -- “I don’t really know what is going to happen. I know there’s a lot of different scenarios,” Robinson said via ESPN. “Right now, my main focus is to kind of let my agent narrow down the scenarios and for me to get back at 100 percent. That’s the main focus right now for me. Again, I know I’ll be back at 100 percent and relatively soon. At the end of the day, I know all that is going to play out." As far as the wideout's contract status, that remains up in the air. Robinson will be a free agent in March and per reports, he is a franchise tag candidate in the event he and the Jaguars cannot come to terms on a new long-term deal. in the end, I don't expect him to reach the open market.
