2021 Half PPR Draft Rankings

Allen Robinson II Note

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.

Darnell Mooney Note

If you watched Mooney last year, you would've seen him routinely get open, only to be underthrown and overthrown by his quarterbacks. No matter who is under center for the Bears (it'll be Justin Fields before long), they'll be an upgrade for Mooney, who finished with 98 targets his rookie season, meaning he took over Taylor Gabriel's role and then some. With Anthony Miller crawling further and further into the doghouse, it's likely we see Mooney with a similar, if not bigger role in 2021. He's not likely to see a consistently high target share with Allen Robinson on the field, but with his field-stretching ability, he doesn't need double-digit targets to make a splash in fantasy. He'll be worth even more when Fields takes the starting job.

Anthony Miller Note

Despite trading up to draft Miller in the second round and having little depth behind Allen Robinson, the Bears have not given him opportunity to match his draft cost. He has yet to top 85 targets in a season, a number that Darnell Mooney surpassed as a rookie. Even Taylor Gabriel topped that number in 2018. Now that Mooney is in year two and the Bears added Dazz Newsome in the draft, it's unlikely we see the breakout we thought we would with Miller. The Bears are also reportedly interested in trading him, which could change his outlook in a hurry.
