Fantasy Minute: Don't Sleep on Allen Robinson (Shortened Article)

 

 

You're Losing If You're Snoozing on Allen Robinson!

What Robinson's Been Up To Lately

  • He has finished top 12 twice in back-to-back seasons before his dirty diaper 2021 season.

  • But now this dude just signed with a team who was top 5 in passing yards and TDs! The man is going from Matt Nagy and Andy Dalton to Sean McVay and Matthew Stafford. 

  • Somehow, he's still barely being drafted as a WR2…there’s a good chance he’ll go even later in your home leagues.

 

Allen Robinson is Good at Football

  • A-Rob has commanded 150+ targets 4 different times in his career and people are snatching him up like the last slice of 4-week-old pizza in your fridge
  • Just a reminder that he produced three WR1 finishes while catching passes from Blake “freaking” Bortles, Mitch “I should hold a clipboard” Trubisky, and Nick “one-hit wonder” Foles
  • People are saying that Robinson is washed after 2021 even though he commanded a higher target share than Courtland Sutton, Amari Cooper, and Mike Evans last year

If You Don’t Beleive Me, Believe Sean McVay

  • Allen Robinson just signed a 3 year $46 million contract with the LA Rams and the majority of that money is guaranteed
  • This large contract means that Sean McVay and the Super Bowl-winning LA Rams think Robinson is still good at football and that they plan on using him!

 

I don’t wanna hear, “But there is no way he’ll get enough targets!” 

  • Don’t be worried about target competition because Kupp is due for some regression! He had the 9th most targets in a season…ever!
  • Oh ya, and the team has 166 targets vacated largely because Robert Woods and OBJ are out of town.
    • Can I quickly remind you that Woods and OBJ were both fantasy trash cans before they were saved by Sean McVay?

Sean McVay Could Make My Dog a WR2 in Fantasy

  • Under Sean McVay, the LA Rams offense has produced two top 18 WRs in 4 out of 5 seasons
  • Remember that Jared “my team gave up two first-round picks to get rid of me” Goff was the QB in almost all of those seasons

 

Summary

  • To simplify fantasy football: You want players who are 1) talented 2) in a good offense 3) have an opportunity to play a lot.
  • Allen Robinson checks all of the boxes but some people would rather listen to Baby Shark on repeat than hear that A-Rob is a great option this year
  • He’s going as the 23rd WR off the board. He’s going to have every opportunity to return value.
  • Take him as a safe option instead of drafting massive bust candidates who play in terrible offenses!
