It hasn't been a great start to the season for Robinson, who caught just 3-of-9 targets for 33 yards against the Giants last week. He also dropped a pass that fell into the defenders hands for an interception. Fortunately, he has a matchup with the Falcons on deck. Their cornerback duo of Isaiah Oliver and A.J. Terrell is one to target with wide receivers. We've already watched four different receivers total 16-plus PPR points against them, and none of those wide receivers even saw double-digit targets. Knowing that Robinson has seen at least seven targets in 16 of his last 18 games, he's going to produce against a secondary that's allowing 2.01 PPR points per target. Plug him in as a low-end WR1 this week and expect results. He should be someone to consider as a discounted stud in cash games, too.He was one of my biggest whiffs last week, as I figured he'd crush the Colts secondary, but Kirk Cousins had one of the worst games of his career. Thielen has seen a 31.4 percent target share through two weeks, so there's little reason to worry about him in that aspect. Sadly, they're only having him run 15 percent of his routes from the slot, which is where he's been most effective throughout his career. Thielen might get a rookie in coverage more often than not in Week 2, as the Titans are missing their top cornerback Adoree Jackson, and might be down his backup with Johnathan Joseph, who suffered a leg injury in Week 2. That would leave Kristian Fulton at LCB, which is where Thielen lines up most of the time. Fulton has only seen four targets in his young NFL career, which have led to three catches for 48 yards, though the one incomplete pass was an interception just last week. I did like Fulton during the draft process but going against Thielen is going to be tough for any rookie. Knowing his target share, combined with the fact that the Vikings should run a lot more plays this week, you should trust Thielen as a high-end WR2 in his matchup with the rookie.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are just 29th against fantasy wide receivers, Robinson should have a good game on the road, but projecting his fantasy output is a challenge with Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback.Kirk Cousins was awful in Week 2 and the result was Thielen posting 3 receptions on 8 targets for 31 yards and no touchdowns. Tennessee is 18th against fantasy receivers, but Thielen is a dicey WR1 until Cousins starts playing more consistent football.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Robinson looked to be a solid candidate to return WR1 production week in and week out heading into the season, but he simply has not been the same receiver on the field that we saw last year. While he's seeing the high target totals, he's not turning them into much for fantasy football. It's a great matchup for Robinson, so he deserves to be in your starting lineup, but you shouldn't be expecting anything more than high-end WR2 numbers this week.Right now, Thielen is the only WR on Minnesota that you want to consider for fantasy football. With the offense struggling as much as it has been, Thielen's nothing more than a WR2 option each week that needs to connect on the deep shot downfield. The Titans will be expecting that this week and should be able to focus in on Thielen and let the other options on the Vikings try to beat them. Thielen's nothing more than a l0w-end WR2 that needs to connect on the big play in order to even return that value in this offense.
