Allen Robinson: Targeted nine times in win

Robinson caught five passes for 53 yards in Chicago's 23-16 victory over the Panthers on Sunday.

Analysis: With the Bears leading for most of the contest, the passing attack was very conservative, and Robinson was the only Chicago receiver to catch a pass of longer than 20 yards, and although the team had the ball on multiple occasions in the red zone, Robinson failed to see an end-zone target. This was the first time since Week 2 that he's failed to reach 90 yards passing in a game, and he remains a wide receiver with one of the highest weekly scoring floors in the league.

Allen Robinson: Heavily targeted in win

Robinson caught 10 passes for 90 yards in Chicago's 20-19 victory over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Analysis: Robinson absorbed an outstanding 16 targets, and he continued to catch just about everything thrown his way, though he did misplay one pass that he popped in the air, leading to an interception. On the season, he's yet to see fewer than nine targets in any game while posting at least 74 yards in all but one contest, and he'll continue to be have one of the highest scoring floors of any wide receiver in the league.

Allen Robinson: Passes century mark in receiving

Robinson caught seven passes for 101 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 19-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Analysis: Aside from a leaping 27-yard catch in the first half, Robinson was very quiet until the last drive of the game, when Nick Foles kept firing the ball to his star receiver, not only padding his yardage totals, but getting him his only score of the afternoon. With at least 100 yards and a touchdown in each of his last two games, Robinson is producing as the top-12 receiver that fantasy managers have come to expect, and he should continue to have one of the safest weekly floors based on his excellent target volume.

Allen Robinson: First big game of season

Robinson caught 10 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Robinson routinely dominated the Atlanta cornerbacks and his touchdown reception pulled the Bears within one score, helping the team to a big comeback victory. In addition to his score, he was ruled to have scored an additional touchdown, but replay overturned the call, keeping him from turning in a massive fantasy performance. For the third week in a row, he led the team in targets, but after seeing exactly nine targets in each of the first two games, he ended up with 13 passes thrown his way, and he'll continue to function as a high-floor top-15 wide receiver.

Allen Robinson: Disappointing performance

Robinson caught three passes for 33 yards in the Bears' 17-13 win over the Giants on Sunday.

Analysis: Even though the Bears played conservatively in the second half while protecting a double-digit lead, Robinson still saw nine targets, which was six more than any of his teammates. Although he was busy, a number of erratic passes from Mitch Trubisky led to a number of missed connections, and consequently a poor fantasy performance. However, with upcoming matchups against the Falcons and Colts, expect Robinson to return to the levels of performance that fantasy managers expected when selecting him on draft day.

Allen Robinson: Extension talks gain steam

The Bears have rebuffed trade inquiries for Robinson in recent days and remain focused on coming to terms with their star wide receiver on a contract extension, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Robinson's dissatisfaction with his contract situation became known Sept. 15, when he deleted all references to the Bears on his social media accounts. While opposing front offices reached out to Chicago upon learning of Robinson's discontent, Rapoport notes that the drama has instead prompted a "renewed effort" on the Bears' part to get an extension done for the 27-year-old. Though a new deal isn't currently imminent, both Robinson and the Bears are hopeful to reach an agreement before the season ends. After locking up running back Tarik Cohen to a three-year extension late Saturday, extending Robinson now presumably looms as the top item on the Bears' to-do list.

Allen Robinson: Targeted nine times

Robinson caught five of nine targets for 74 yards in the Bears' 27-23 win over Detroit on Sunday.

Analysis: Robinson had to deal with a number of erratic passes, but as usual, he hauled in a number of contested catches to post a solid fantasy performance. He was also targeted in the end zone, but the ball was slightly overthrown. With a solid weekly scoring floor along with a consistently high target share, Robinson should continue to be a top-12 receiver in weekly lineups.

Allen Robinson: Back on the field

Robinson (ankle) has returned to practice, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. "I feel great," Robinson said. "It's been good to be back out there the last few days."

Analysis: Robinson was held out for about one week due to an ankle issue, but he's recovered enough to participate in drills in recent days. The development backs up coach Matt Nagy's official stance on the matter, calling his level of concern "low" last Tuesday, per Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com. Now back on the field, Robinson can continue to make inroads on a potential contract extension after finishing last season third in the NFL with 154 targets and the second 1,000-yard season of his six-year career.

Allen Robinson: Should be fine

Coach Matt Nagy said he isn't too worried about Robinson's ankle injury, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Robinson has been held out of practice since Sunday with what's believed to be a minor ankle injury. He's entering the final season of a three-year contract, and his 2019 performance would seem to make him a prime candidate for an extension, even though the Bears already have a slew of significant financial commitments for 2021 and beyond. Robinson finished last season No. 3 in targets (154) and No. 5 in target share (27 percent), posting a 63.6 percent catch rate and 7.4 YPT in an offense that completed 64.0 percent of its passes for 6.2 YPA. He accounted for 32.1 percent of the Bears' receiving yards and 35.0 percent of their receiving TDs (seven of 20).

Allen Robinson: Misses time with ankle injury

Robinson did not participate in Saturday's practice thanks to an ankle injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: There wasn't much else to the report which could be considered a good sign regarding the severity of the injury. More information surrounding the aforementioned ankle issues should be available in the coming days or potentially even at the end of Saturday's practice.

Allen Robinson: Hasn't been offered extension

Robinson says the Bears haven't approached him about signing a contract extension, ESPN Chicago 1000 reports.

Analysis: Robinson will turn 27 in August as he prepares for the third season of a three-year, $42 million contract. He earned his money (and then some) last season with the second 1,000-yard campaign of his career, and he said in January that he'd like to stay in Chicago beyond 2020. An extension seems like the obvious move from a team standpoint, but the current atmosphere of uncertainty could make it difficult to hammer out the details. In terms of the immediate future, Robinson is locked in as the centerpiece of the Chicago passing game, working with some combination of Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles.

Allen Robinson: Willing to discuss extension

Robinson is willing to sign an extension, noting that he still hopes to play the rest of his career with the Bears, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

Analysis: Entering the third season of a three-year, $42 million contract, Robinson is scheduled for a $15 million cap hit in 2020, per overthecap.com. His next deal presumably will be larger in terms of average annual value, but that doesn't necessarily mean the 2020 cap charge will increase if he signs an extension. The 26-year-old wide receiver enjoyed a rebound campaign in 2019, producing career highs for targets (154) and receptions (98) as well as his best marks since 2015 for receiving yardage (1,147) and touchdowns (seven). The sketchy quarterback situation in Chicago could be a relevant factor that dissuades Robinson from taking a team-friendly deal.

Allen Robinson: Leads team in receiving

Robinson caught nine passes for 71 yards in the Bears' 21-19 win over the Vikings in Week 17.

Analysis: In his second season following knee surgery, Robinson re-emerged as a fantasy force by posting his first 1,000-yard season since 2015 while posting his second-highest touchdown total of his six-year career. His season was even more impressive because he was often hindered by erratic quarterback play, but his elite ability at the catch point allowed him to consistently make plays even when he was tightly guarded and the football wasn't always on target. It'll be difficult to view him as anything other than a top-12 option at wide receiver in 2020 fantasy drafts.

December 29, 2019 1:50 PM EST

Allen Robinson: Leads team in receiving

Robinson caught six passes for 53 yards in the Bears' 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Analysis: Robinson was the only Bears receiver to post more than 26 yards, and he led the team with 12 targets in a game in which they struggled to move the ball consistently. He did have a chance to score on a fourth-down play in the red zone when he was targeted in the end zone, but the pass was underthrown. He'll look to end the season on a high note in a Week 17 matchup against the Vikings, as he looks to add to his 89 receptions and 1,078 yards.

December 22, 2019 9:07 PM EST

Allen Robinson: Leads team in receiving

Robinson caught seven passes for 125 yards in the Bears' 21-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Analysis: Robinson had just nine yards at halftime, but with Chicago falling behind by double digits early in the second half, he ended up with 14 targets, and the Packers were unable to slow him down as he posted at least 86 yards for the fourth time over his last six games. Although he'll face a Kansas City defense in week 16 that has done well to limit opposing wide receivers this season, he'll continue to be a strong fantasy option to close out the fantasy season.

December 15, 2019 2:35 PM EST

Allen Robinson: Pair of touchdown grabs in win

Robinson secured five of eight targets for 48 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.

Analysis: Robinson extended his touchdown streak to three games with scoring grabs of five and eight yards in the second quarter. The veteran had totaled at least 86 yards in three of his four games prior to Thursday, so his yardage tally against the Cowboys represented a downturn. Nevertheless, Robinson appears to have a locked-in target share, making him a valued fantasy asset alongside an improving Mitchell Trubisky in a Week 15 showdown against the Packers a week from Sunday.

December 5, 2019 9:18 PM EST

Allen Robinson: Another fruitful fantasy effort

Robinson brought in eight of 12 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 24-20 win over the Lions on Thursday.

Analysis: Robinson opened the scoring on the day for the Bears with a 10-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter, and he was Mitchell Trubisky's second-favorite target on the day overall behind Anthony Miller. Robinson checked in second in receptions, receiving yardage and targets behind his second-year teammate, but the veteran still put together a highly productive follow-up to his season-best 131-yard effort in Week 12 against the Giants. Robinson will look to extend his scoring streak to three games when the Bears face off with the Cowboys in a Week 14 Thursday night battle.

November 28, 2019 1:22 PM EST

Allen Robinson: Blows up

Robinson caught six passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 19-14 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

Analysis: Along with the entire Bears offense, Robinson was very quiet during the first half, but he took over the game in the final 30 minutes as the New York secondary didn't have an answer for him n coverage. In addition to his huge numbers, he had a reception of over 60 yards called back by penalty. Although he's had a pair of disappointing performances over the last four weeks, he's been held to fewer than 60 yards just twice since Week 2, and he'll continue to be a WR2 based on both his talent and target volume.

November 24, 2019 2:43 PM EST

Allen Robinson: Just 15 yards in loss

Robinson caught four passes (six targets) for 15 yards in Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Robinson spent most of his night matched up against shutdown corner, Jalen Ramsey, and the defensive back got the better of the matchup. The Bears' top wideout has now posted two rough outings of 15 yards and six yards over his last three contests, but a lot of the blame can be placed on inconsistent quarterback play from struggling sophomore Mitch Trubisky. Robinson won't have to deal with a corner anywhere near as talented as Ramsey when Chicago takes on the Giants (24th ranked pass defense) on Sunday, and he should remain startable in most formats with 8.6 targets per game this season.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM EST

Allen Robinson: Scores twice

Robinson caught seven passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Analysis: The Bears came out completely flat in this contest and trailed 17-0 at the half, but that set the stage for Robinson to go off in the second half. In addition to making a ridiculous contested catch in double coverage for 32 yards, he led the team with eight targets and scored Chicago's only receiving touchdowns. He's been targeted at least seven times in each game this season while falling below 60 yards just once, and after his Week 6 bye, he'll continue to be a strong weekly fantasy starter.
