Fantasy Football Week 5 Wide Receiver Preview: Projections, DFS plays, stats to know, more


The worst feeling in fantasy is when you spend a high draft pick on a player, discard him too early, and then watch him rage on someone else’s roster. That’s why we preach caution at the start of the season, even if the results are disastrous. For Allen Robinson, these disastrous results have gone on too long to be ignored.

Robinson was somehow worse in LA than he was in the Bears. He averages fewer yards per goal, catch and game than he did in 2021. His catch rate dropped to a horrendous 50% and he saw more than five targets only once all season.

While Matthew Stafford and the Rams offense have plenty of problems besides Cooper Kupp, it’s hard to blame Robinson’s performance for those problems. Matthew Stafford had significantly more success casting to Tyler Higbee and Ben Skowronek than to Robinson. The 29-year-old has only 49 shots for 542 yards and two touchdowns in his last 17 NFL games.

Is there still hope for the Robinsons? Maybe like a flex depending on landing with little volume. When a player at this point in his career plays so poorly for so long, he rarely recovers. You can feel safe giving Robinson to someone who can really help your Fantasy team.
