Signs with Raiders

Robinson has agreed to a one-year deal with the Raiders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Robinson is coming off a 2021 campaign in which he recorded 25 catches on 41 targets for 264 yards and three TDs in 17 games with the Chiefs. This coming season, the 27-year-old will compete with Bryan Edwards and Mack Hollins for the team's wide receiver looks that don't go to high-volume options Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow.

Season-high target count in Week 18

Robinson compiled three receptions for 19 yards on a season-high six targets during Saturday's game against the Broncos.

Analysis: Robinson's target volume matched the Week 6 count against the Football Team despite him playing just half of the offensive snaps, which ranks sixth-fewest among games he's appeared in this season by percentage. He didn't experience any gains as a receiver in 2021 and instead went the opposite direction, finishing with lower totals in receptions (25) and receiving yards (264) than last year's totals of 45 grabs for 466 yards while matching the touchdown total with three. Robinson's one-year deal is set to expire this offseason, so it remains to be seen what uniform he will don in 2022.

Tallies third TD of season

Robinson hauled in both of his targets for 22 yards and a touchdown Sunday versus the Bengals.

Analysis: Robinson hadn't reached pay dirt since Week 6 but hauled in a touchdown pass to get the scoring started Sunday. Even though his playing time remains relatively high, Robinson is still a shaky, at best, option from a fantasy perspective.

Another slow day

Robinson posted a pair of catches for 15 yards on his two targets Sunday versus the Steelers.

Analysis: Robinson had some mild success in the early part of the schedule but has done very little to impact the offense for a while, compiling just 10 catches for 86 yards on 17 targets over the team's last nine games. There's nothing to suggest his involvement will increase in the coming weeks.

Can't corral a pass

Robinson was unable to haul in any of his three targets during Thursday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Robinson has gone without a catch in each of the last two games and three of the last four despite playing 40 percent or more of the offensive snaps in every contest. Given that he hasn't tallied more than three catches in a game this season, it's pretty safe to leave him on the waiver wire in the vast majority of leagues.

Comes up empty

Robinson was not targeted in Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Robinson has gone without a target in two of the last three games and has just three games all season with more than two receptions. Until further notice, he can be discounted in the vast majority of season-long fantasy leagues.

Dec 14, 2021 1:30 PM EST

Another quiet day

Robinson reeled in both of his two targets for 21 yards Sunday against the Broncos.

Analysis: Robinson has just two catches total to his name over the team's past two contests but he did see a minor resurgence in his playing time Sunday, likely due to his abilities as a blocker in the run game. He can't be counted on to deliver fantasy-worth outings at this point.

Dec 7, 2021 8:52 AM EST

Not targeted in win

Robinson failed to see a single target in Sunday's 19-9 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Robinson played on 41 percent of the Chiefs' offensive snaps Sunday, behind fellow wide receivers Tyreek Hill, Byron Pringle and Josh Gordon. Going forward, Robinson will likely continue to be difficult to trust for fantasy purposes. The 27-year-old heads into the bye with 16 total catches, 175 yards and two touchdowns so far this season.

Matches season-high three grabs

Robinson tallied a trio of receptions for 23 yards on four targets Sunday versus the Raiders.

Analysis: Robinson could have had a fantasy-relevant day had the pass he didn't catch been completed. Patrick Mahomes slightly overthrew him in the second quarter on a third-down pass that would have resulted in a touchdown for Robinson. Touchdowns are essentially a requirement for him to near fantasy relevance in most leagues, so his two scores on the season pretty much tell the tale of his viability as a fantasy asset in most formats.

Nov 16, 2021 10:14 AM EST

Nabs one passs

Robinson tallied just one catch for two yards on his only target Sunday against the Packers.

Analysis: Robinson has finished with only one catch in each of the last three games played and saw a significant drop in his playing time Sunday, checking in for a season-low 22 percent of the offensive snaps. Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman were the only wideouts to see a meaningful uptick in snaps this week, while two-tight sets were more frequently used with the Chiefs leading for most of the night.

Nov 9, 2021 8:48 AM EST

One catch Monday

Robinson tallied just one catch for 18 yards on his only target Monday versus the Giants.

Analysis: Robinson has finished with only one catch in three of the last four games, providing a picture of exactly where he stands in the fantasy landscape at the moment. It doesn't seem likely that will change anytime soon.

Nov 2, 2021 1:14 PM EST

Held to one catch

Robinson reeled in just one of his four targets for seven yards Sunday versus the Titans.

Analysis: Despite playing a season-high 79 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday, Robinson garnered a measly seven yards. His four targets match his second-best total of the season, but Robinson hasn't finished with more than 46 receiving yards in a game and is primarily viewed as a solid blocker in the run game. There's little to like here from a fantasy perspective.

Oct 26, 2021 10:35 AM EST

Scores late touchdown

Robinson finished with three catches for 46 yards and a touchdown on a season-high six targets Sunday versus Washington.

Analysis: Robinson now has two lines of 3-46-1 on the year, with the first coming in Week 2 against Baltimore. Unfortunately, Week 2 and Sunday are the only two times through six weeks Robinson has more than two catches. He's also finished with 17 or fewer yards and hasn't scored in any of the other four weeks, so he's not a wideout who can be counted on to produce consistently moving forward.

Oct 19, 2021 11:07 AM EST

Minimal impact again

Robinson reeled in just one of his two targets for eight yards Sunday night versus the Bills.

Analysis: Robinson saw a season-high 76 percent of the offensive snaps due to the Chiefs trailing most of the game, but it didn't result in any more production from him in the contest. Mecole Hardman once again outproduced him on fewer snaps and there is nothing to suggest that trend will change anytime soon. If anything, Robinson could begin to cede snaps to Josh Gordon once Gordon becomes familiar with the playbook.

Oct 12, 2021 10:25 AM EST

Blanked in box score

Robinson wasn't targeted during Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Robinson owned just six receptions to his name on eight targets through the first three weeks but couldn't even hit that bar Sunday. He still played 67 percent of the offensive snaps in the contest, primarily due to his skills as a run blocker, but Robinson is far from a fantasy threat at this point. With Josh Gordon set to be active this week, it's possible Robinson's snap count will wane a bit more.

Oct 5, 2021 12:37 PM EST

Reels in pair of passes

Robinson compiled two catches for 17 yards on a pair of targets Sunday versus the Chargers.

Analysis: Robinson once again played the second-most snaps of any wide receiver Sunday but hasn't really drawn much in the way of targets thus far. Through three games he has amassed a total of eight total targets, and it seems unlikely things will change on that front in the near future with at least three or four other options ahead of him in the pecking order for looks in the passing game.

Sep 28, 2021 10:33 AM EST

Reaches pay dirt versus Ravens

Robinson compiled three catches for 46 yards and a touchdown on four targets Sunday versus the Ravens.

Analysis: That is the good news for Robinson. Lon the downside, Robinson seemed to fall down the pecking order, logging fewer snaps than Mecole Hardman and many fewer targets (four to Harman's eight). Hardman is the far superior fantasy threat if he's getting No. 2 receiver snaps, so if Robinson's snap count dwindles more or remains stagnant in future weeks, it's unreasonable to anticipate similar results.

Sep 21, 2021 4:03 PM EST

Minimal looks in opener

Robinson collected one of his two targets for nine yards in Sunday's regular-season opener versus the Browns.

Analysis: Robinson did play the second-most snaps (48) of any wideout during Sunday's game, suggesting he will remain a big part of the offensive game plan moving forward. That being said, Robinson is far from a primary target in the attack and finished tied for fourth on the team in targets with Byron Pringle, who played just 11 snaps.

Second-string wideout on Week 1 DC

Robinson checks in as the second-string wideout behind Mecole Hardman on the Chiefs' unofficial Week 1 depth chart, Nick Jacobs of KSHB 41 News reports.

Analysis: Robinson hasn't quite turned public heads in his direction but the coaching staff seems to like what they've seen out of the wideout, bringing him back on a one-year deal this offseason and positioning as the potential No. 3 wideout with Sammy Watkins gone to Baltimore. He sits alongside Byron Pringle in the second-string slot to open the season.

Sep 9, 2021 2:50 PM EST

Takes reps as punt returner

Robinson reeled in two passes for 10 yards and returned two punts for five yards during Friday's preseason contest versus the Cardinals.

Analysis: The coaching staff is giving a bunch of players a look in the return game before making a final decision, but Robinson's go of it Friday wasn't a particularly good one. It seems unlikely he will hold a return job come Week1 but he still figures to contribute in some capacity on offense. He's vying with both Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle for snaps alongside Tyreek Hill.
