Allen Robinson Fantasy Football Outlook & Value 2019

After four seasons played with the Jaguars to open his career, Allen Robinson played his first season with the Bears in 2018. He finished the year with 754 yards on 55 receptions for an average of 13.7 yards per reception. His 754 yards had him slotted at 36th in the NFL as his 55 receptions had him tied for 57th. He had a (slightly low) 4 TDs on the year in 2018. That being said, though, he did miss 3 games on the year and one could assume he would have had at least 1 or 2 more TDs had he been healthy.

In the above thread, Nick Petro of The Loop Sports highlights some of Robinson’s most impressive catches from the 2018 campaign and touches on the fact that this will be his second season back from his ACL tear, as well as his second season in Matt Nagy’s offense. The Bears’ smoke and mirrors offense was extremely successful last year, so I can only see more experience being a positive for Robinson and the rest of the Bears’ offense. Robinson’s ACL injury certainly didn’t seem to affect him much last year, as some of his catches seemed almost impossible to pull off. As Trubisky continues to get more comfortable throwing the ball, Robinson’s numbers will only increase. Despite missing three games last year, Robinson still had the most targets of anyone on the Bears.

At Lineups we currently have Robinson slotted at WR28 and projected for 846.5 receiving yards on 64.3 receptions. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Robinson surpass this estimate, as many are thinking Trubisky will have a breakout year in 2019. The better Trubisky does, the better Robinson does.

Barring injury, I don’t think Robinson has a very low floor going into 2019. He’ll be the most targeted Bear again in 2019 and he’ll get a handful of TDs. Sure, he’s not going to get as many looks as other WR1s like Julio Jones or Michael Thomas, but he’s going to put up solid numbers and if taken at the right time in the draft, could be an amazing value.

Chicago BearsWe currently have his average draft position at 7.08 which I see being extremely fair. His auction value out of $200 is set at $12, which is slightly higher than I’d be willing to pay for him. Someone like Alshon Jeffery (a former Bear) might be a better value as he sits at just $9. That being said, I still don’t think taking Robinson for $12 would be detrimental.

What I like most about Robinson is him being right in the middle of the new culture that emerged from the Bears last season. The chemistry on this Bears team is currently off the charts, and that only helps production on the field in my opinion.
