WR - KC
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."
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.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Chiefs have re-signed WR Demarcus Robinson to a one-year deal.
The details of the one-year contract are still unknown, but Robinson will remain in town with the Chiefs for at least one more year. Kansas City will likely lose veteran WR Sammy Watkins and missed out on free agents WR's like Juju Smith-Schuster and Josh Reynolds, so bringing back Robinson for depth makes sense. Robinson, 26-years old, started nine games in 2020 and finished with 35 receptions for 466 yards and three TD's.
Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson has been cleared to resume practicing Friday.
Robinson was considered a close contact and placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. He’s tested negative for COVID-19 everyday since being placed on the list. Robinson is expected to come off the reserve/COVID-19 list soon and trending in the right direction towards suiting up for the Super Bowl. The 26-year-old WR hauled in 45 receptions for 466 yards and three touchdowns across 16 games in 2020.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson has tested negative for COVID-19 every day since being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Robinson is expected to be cleared and able to rejoin the team on Friday. His presence in the Super Bowl means little for Kansas City's pass catchers.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Chiefs placed WR Demarcus Robinson on the reserve/COVID-19 list as a close contact.
C Daniel Kilgore was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as well. Neither player tested positive, however, so expect both to suit up on Sunday as long as they continue testing negative. Hopefully this is the only news we get about players landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list this week.
