Allen Robinson II
WR - CHI
It's amazing the stats Allen Robinson has put up with such lousy QBs. Last year he had 102 receptions 1,250 yards and 6 TDs. The Bears, unhappy with their offense, went back to the drawing board. First they signed QB Andy Dalton. Then they made a bold move to draft Ohio St QB Justin Fields after he slid in the draft. Fields might need time to learn the playbook. Nick Foles is still there too. They also drafted OT Teven Jenkins for a line which was in desperate need of an upgrade. Just think how good Robinson could be if the Bears actually scored a few TDs per game? Expect similar stats. The Bears offense is probably at least a year away from making a substantial leap.
Opportunity is everything, right? It's why despite Robinson's lackluster quarterback play, he's been able to finish as a top-12 receiver in back-to-back seasons. The upgrade to Andy Dalton was solid, but if the Bears play Justin Fields, it could be even better. Based on opportunity alone, Robinson should have finished as the WR4 in each of the last two seasons (that's based on how many targets he saw and where he saw them), so there's certainly room for improvement in his finish. Robinson has proven to be a WR1 with bad quarterback play in this same offense, making him one of the safer options as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2.
Allen Robinson has played with Blake Bortles, Blaine Gabbert, Nick Foles and Mitch Trubisky. Yet, he's still found a way to stay a fantasy asset over his career. Justin Fields/Andy Dalton are upgrades for the Bears and Robinson will continue to be the WR1 of the team with plenty of target volume in '21. Robinson has back to back 150+ target seasons and should be a PPR beast again this season with 100 rec and 1,200 yards well within his grasp.
Bears return = path to tons of volume... albeit hideous volume... ANDY DALTON?!
Robinson II had 211.9 in 16 games, despite playing with Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles. Robinson is a low-end WR1 that still has limited upside due to playing with Andy Dalton.
While the entire city of Chicago was doing cartwheels after the Bears traded up for Justin Fields, there may have been no one happier than Robinson. After playing with guys like Blake Bortles, Nick Foles, Mitch Trubisky, etc. throughout his NFL career, he now has the opportunity to play with a truly special QB. It remains to be seen how exactly Fields will progress and perform in the NFL, but things are finally looking up for ARob.
Allen Robinson is the premier receiving free agent of 2021. With the Bears in a little salary cap trouble (they're over the cap and their only QB is Nick Foles, though they can find $7 million by cutting Jimmy Graham) and things getting slightly frosty between ARob and the Bears brass, a return to Chicago seems unlikely, though of course a franchise tag and even a holdout are both possible. A move elsewhere is also very much on the cards, but most feasible locations are very similar to the Bears. Poor quarterback, little receiving competition, big volume. That makes Robinson an elite dynasty option and suggests he'll be a top fantasy producer for years to come.
