Allen Robinson Signs With Giants

The New York Giants signed free-agent wide receiver Allen Robinson on Thursday, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. The move to acquire a cheap veteran makes sense considering the weak group of pass-catchers on New York's roster, but Robinson has looked like a shell of his former self over the last three seasons. After two consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020, Robinson has totaled just 1,029 yards and four touchdowns over the last three campaigns. He tallied 280 yards and no touchdowns with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2023. Although he could provide value as an experienced leader in the locker room, it'd be surprising if he made an impact in fantasy football. Rookie first-round pick Malik Nabers is expected to be the No. 1 wide receiver for Daniel Jones right away, while Jalin Hyatt, Wan'Dale Robinson, and Darius Slayon with compete for looks behind him.

Steelers Part Ways With Allen Robinson

According to Field Yates of ESPN, wide receiver Allen Robinson was released by the Steelers on Friday. The move helped Pittsburgh from a monetary standpoint, considering it cleared up millions in cap space. But it also allows the team to move on from the veteran wideout, who is coming off arguably his worst year in the league. Robinson has played for four teams throughout his career. In 127 regular season games, he's caught 562 passes for 7,028 yards and 43 touchdowns. The 30-year-old has also hit the 1,000-yard mark three times. That said, Robinson should have more than a few teams interested in acquiring his services. But he's not expected to be a viable fantasy asset anytime in the near future.

Steelers Expected To Cut Allen Robinson II

The Pittsburgh Steelers already released Chukwuma Okorafor, Mitch Trubisky and Pressley Harvin III, clearing nearly $13 million in 2024 salary cap space, and wide receiver Allen Robinson II is expected to be next, according to The Athletic's Mark Kaboly. The Steelers acquired Robinson in a trade from the Rams last year under the notion that it would only be a one-year marriage considering his $11.9 million cap hit in 2024. Cutting him would save Pittsburgh $10 million with $1.9 million in dead money, so it's a no-brainer basically. He started all 17 games in 2023 and played 72% of the offensive snaps but caught just 34 passes for 280 yards and no touchdowns. Unless the team adds a veteran in free agency, Calvin Austin III is set to take over A-Rob's role in 2024.

Allen Robinson II Suffers Head Injury In Wild-Card Game

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson II (head) was removed from Monday's wild-card playoff game in the second half and is questionable to return to the contest while being evaluated for a possible concussion. Robinson's head snapped back and his helmet slammed onto the cold turf in Buffalo late in the third quarter and struggled to get back up. It's unlikely that the 30-year-old veteran pass-catcher will return to the field. Before getting hurt, he had two catches on his three targets for only 12 yards. In Pittsburgh's low-scoring offense in 2023, A-Rob was not on the fantasy radar at all and finished the regular season with only 34 catches on 49 targets for 280 yards and no touchdowns in his first year with the Steelers over 17 games.

Allen Robinson III Catches Three Passes In Week 11 Loss

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson III didn't have much of a chance to put up big numbers in the Week 11 loss to the division-rival Cleveland Browns on Sunday in a game in which quarterback Kenny Pickett threw for only 106 yards. Robinson finished the 13-10 loss with three catches on four targets for 20 yards, but it was good enough to put him second on the team in receiving yards behind only George Pickens' 38. The 30-year-old veteran had five receptions for 64 yards in the season opener, but since then, he hasn't cleared 30 receiving yards in a single game and wasn't even targeted in the Week 9 win over the Green Bay Packers. A-Rob is firmly off the fantasy radar in Pittsburgh's lackluster offense.

Allen Robinson II Back At Practice On Thursday

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ankle) was upgraded to a limited participant in Thursday's practice, per Brooke Pryor of Robinson's ankle injury kept him out Wednesday's session, so this development gets him back on course for Week 4's road date with the Houston Texans. But the 30-year-old just hasn't had it on the field for the past few years, and his production has actually taken a dip with Diontae Johnson (hamstring) on injured reserve for the last two games. Robinson has grabbed six of his seven targets for 36 yards in Johnson's absence, so any WR3 life just won't be there despite an encouraging season opener. Pittsburgh's game plan will likely be centered around their ground game against Houston's run-funnel defense on Sunday.

Allen Robinson II Misses Wednesday's Practice

As expected, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ankle) sat out of the first practice of the week on Wednesday after injuring his ankle in the Week 3 win over the Las Vegas Raiders last Sunday night. Head coach Mike Tomlin said that Robinson could be limited in the early portion of the week because of the ankle injury, but it sounds like he should have a chance to play in Week 4 against the Houston Texans if he makes progress later in the week. The 30-year-old has failed to take advantage of Diontae Johnson (hamstring) being on Injured Reserve early in the year, catching 11 of 15 targets for 100 yards and no touchdowns through three games. If he's out or limited this Sunday, Calvin Austin III and George Pickens would see even more targets as the top two wideouts.

Allen Robinson II Dealing With Ankle Injury

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ankle) is dealing with an ankle injury and could be limited early in the week in practice. It doesn't sound like a very serious injury for Robinson, but don't be surprised if he's held out of the team's first official practice this week on Wednesday. The 30-year-old veteran hasn't exactly capitalized on Diontae Johnson's hamstring injury in the first three weeks of the season, hauling in 11 of his 15 targets for 100 yards and no touchdowns in his first three games in Pittsburgh. It would be a surprise if he was unable to play this Sunday against the Houston Texans, but A-Rob has so far been an uninspiring WR4/flex option for fantasy managers in deeper leagues.

Allen Robinson III Not On Fantasy Radar In Week 3

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson III led the team's receivers in snaps last week but finished with just two receptions for 12 yards. The 30-year-old will look to bounce back in Week 3 against the Las Vegas Raiders. Robinson should continue to play on a healthy amount of snaps until Diontae Johnson (hamstring) returns, but George Pickens established himself as the focal point of Pittsburgh's passing attack in Week 2. Although he may be more effective in this soft matchup against Las Vegas than he was against the Cleveland Browns, Robinson cannot be counted on in starting fantasy lineups on Sunday night.

Allen Robinson II Quiet In Week 2 Win

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson II secured two of his three targets for 12 yards in a 26-22 victory against the Cleveland Browns. Robinson, who led the team in targets and receiving yards in Week 1, was expected to see additional opportunities with Diontae Johnson (hamstring) sidelined in Week 2, but the veteran was unable to make an impact on Monday night. Pittsburgh's inefficient offense certainly didn't do him any favors as the team turned the ball over or punted on nine of its 14 possessions. Although Robinson should continue to operate as the Steelers' WR2 for at least the next three games with Johnson on Injured Reserve, it's difficult to project him for any worthwhile fantasy production. The 30-year-old will hope to be more involved in a Week 3 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Allen Robinson II - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson II was the most productive pass-catcher on the team last week and could be even more involved in a Week 2 matchup against the Cleveland Browns. With Diontae Johnson (hamstring) ruled out, Robinson is expected to lead Pittsburgh's receiver corps alongside second-year pro George Pickens. The Browns' defense was solid against opposing wideouts in 2022, but Robinson should see plenty of targets on Monday night and could surprise for fantasy purposes. In deeper leagues, the 30-year-old can be considered as a possible flex option this week.

Allen Robinson II Leads Steelers In Receiving In Week 1 Loss

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Allen Robinson II secured five of his eight targets for a team-high 64 yards in a 30-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Robinson had just 11 yards at halftime but saw more opportunities in the second half after Diontae Johnson (hamstring) was forced to exit. The veteran was on the receiving end of Pittsburgh's longest play from scrimmage, a 31-yard pass from quarterback Kenny Pickett on the team's final drive. Pickett and the Steelers showed a willingness to spread the ball around as seven players earned at least four targets, but Robinson could still be an intriguing addition off of fantasy waiver wires should Johnson miss extended time. A divisional matchup against the Cleveland Browns is on tap for Week 2.
