|Robinson took the NFL by storm in his second season when he put up a monster 80-1400-14 campaign with Jacksonville. He came crashing down to earth in 2016 seeing a huge drop off in every statistical category. He had a comically bad catch rate on deep balls, and looked to bounce back going in 2017. Well the redemption season never quite got off the ground as Robinson tore his ACL on his first and only reception of the season. Unwilling to pick up his 5th year option, or franchise him, Robinson skipped off to Chicago where his future looks bright once again.
The former Nittany Lion will have had nearly a year to recover from his injury by the time camp starts next month. All reports have his rehab going along perfectly, and the Bears expect him to be a big part of the offense as evidenced by the financial commitment they made to him. Still only 24 despite entering his 5th season in the league, Robinson has age and monster talent on his side. He participated in OTAs this offseason, and looks on track to be the No.1 option in the passing game. Chicago has gutted its receiving core leaving a ton of potential receptions and yards on the table for Robinson to claim. I don't know that he returns to the silly numbers of 2015, but this offense is going to be open and creative, and I think Trubisky makes a leap in his 2nd year. I'm not ready to pin my hopes on him as a WR1, but I think he puts up consistent WR2 numbers with the upside for more.
| Allen Robinson set to return Week 10|
Missed last two games with groin injury

FFToday's Take: Robinson was steady but unspectacular for the most part before getting hurt in Week 6. While he hasn't been a difference-maker in fantasy per se, his return should free up Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller to win their individual matchups more often since they won't be the focus of the defense's attention. Consider Robinson a WR3 with some decent upside in Week 10 against the Lions.

FFToday's Take: Robinson was limited on Friday but will miss Week 8. With Robinson out, Kevin White and Josh Bellamy should receive more playing time. Neither is a recommended fantasy option. Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller and tight end Trey Burton should be the top receiving option for Mitchell Trubisky.
| Anthony Miller out for Week 4|

FFToday's Take: Miller hasn't really been a fantasy factor seeing only 11 targets in three games. With Mitchell Trubisky looking like a young in-experienced quarterback, it's difficult trust anyone in the receiving group other than Allen Robinson and TE Trey Burton. Josh Bellamy and Kevin White should see increase snaps with Miller out.
