WR - NYG
Wan'Dale Robinson did not record a catch, rushing attempt, or receive a single target in his first showing for the New York Giants.
Robinson's quiet night can likely be attributed to the Giants not wanting to show their best offensive plays in a meaningless preseason game. All reports out of training camp have been that Wan'Dale is the Giants' most targeted receiver and that the team plans to use him in a multitude of positions, including in the backfield. Robinson played all 14 of his snaps with the starters on Thursday, which is a great sign for the versatile rookie.
Giants rookie WR Wan'Dale Robinson has been standing out and impressing the coaching staff in training camp.
Robinson, a rookie, has been perhaps the most impressive player at the Giants camp, and the team seems to have big plans for him this upcoming season. He will have to continue to prove himself, but if he can secure a starting spot, he could prove to be a very valuable pick for fantasy this season.
According to The Athletic's Dan Duggan, the Giants were moving rookie WR Wan'Dale Robinson all over the field during the team's first training camp practice.
When Wan'Dale Robinson was selected in the second-round of this year's NFL draft, it seemed like a pure scheme-fit pick, and that appeared to be the case as the Giants' training camp began Wednesday. Robinson lined up primarily as a running back in his first two years of college before making the move to receiver. He is a true Swiss Army knife, and will be a focal point in the Giants' offense that is led by the creative minds of head coach Brian Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka. Robinson worked with the starting unit and was used in the backfield, the slot, and out wide. The versatile rookie could end up being a steal for fantasy managers who take a swing on him in the final round of their drafts. Wan'Dale is currently WR106, according to FantasyPros average draft position.
New York Giants second-round pick WR Wan’Dale Robinson signed his rookie deal — a four-year contract worth about $8.2 million.
Coming out of Kentucky, many considered the pick of Robinson to either be a reach or redundant to second-year WR Kadarius Toney. But after investing high draft capital into both players, the Giants will likely find a way to utilize both of their skill sets at the same time. Both Robinson and Toney are capable of running from the slot and are most dangerous with the ball in their hands. Robinson is a former running back, and you can tell in his play style. At just 5-foot-8, he put up 1,334 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in his final college season. In Year 1, though, he may not be more than a gadget player, which is reflected in his average draft position of WR102. In a deep Giants receiving room, he may not be relevant this season outside of dynasty formats.
According to a report from Darryl Slater of NJ.com, New York Giants wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson could have a "significant role" in the offense this coming season.
Slater notes that although Robinson might not start, the second-round pick should see significant usage as a "gadget player." We heard similar stories about Kadarius Toney when he was a rookie last summer, and although injuries hindered his campaign, he was effective when healthy. At just 5-foot-8 and 178 pounds, it will be interesting to see what role Robinson has as a rookie. Although he should be drafted in all dynasty leagues, he won't have much instant appeal in redraft formats.
