Held in check despite larger role

Robinson had two catches on three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Analysis: The veteran played a season-high 37 snaps due in large part to Rashod Bateman suffering a foot injury in the second half of the game. Robinson did not see his role in the passing game increase despite the elevated snap volume. Pending Bateman's status going into Week 5, Robinson could be primed for a strong snap share against the Bengals but it's dubious to expect that to convert into a major boost in fantasy output.

Gets just one target Week 3

Robinson played 22 of the Ravens' 59 offensive snaps in Sunday's 37-26 win over the Patriots and failed to haul in his lone target.

Analysis: Though he served as Baltimore's No. 3 receiver Sunday, Robinson was on the field for just 37 percent of the offensive plays. He continues to be hurt by the Ravens making frequent use of two-tight-end sets featuring standout Mark Andrews and rookie Isaiah Likely, the latter of whom has seen comparable snap shares to Robinson through each of the first three weeks. Expect the trend to continue moving forward, therefore making it difficult to extract much fantasy value from Robinson.

Finds end zone in loss

Robinson caught one of two targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-38 loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: Robinson's 12-yard touchdown grab came with under a minute left in the first half of what ended up being a gut-wrenching loss for the Ravens. The wideout's only other target on the contest was a short incompletion from Lamar Jackson just one play before his score. Robinson continued to operate as the Ravens' No. 3 receiver behind Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernary, playing on just 39 percent of the team's offensive snaps. With this type of snap share and target volume, the 28-year-old is difficult to trust for fantasy purposes. Robinson will look to get more involved in the passing game when the Ravens visit the Patriots in Week 3.

Carves out role in opener

Robinson caught two of four targets for 19 yards Sunday against the Jets.

Analysis: The recently acquired Robinson had a solid role in his regular-season debut for the Ravens with four targets, which tied for third on the team. He played 23 of a possible 51 snaps and functioned as the No.3 receiver behind Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay. His target per snap rate is somewhat encouraging but he will need to start converting those opportunities into more production before he can be considered to be back on the fantasy radar.

Stars in preseason finale

Robinson caught four of six targets for 135 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason finale against Washington.

Analysis: Recently released by Kansas City, the 27-year-old wideout made his case for a roster spot in Baltimore with two long gains on double moves. Both were arguably bad defense rather than great route-running, but it at least keeps Robinson in the mix for a roster spot on a team that has one of the weakest WR depth charts in the league.

Expected to play Saturday

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday that he expects Robinson to play in Saturday's preseason contest against the Commanders, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Robinson recently signed with the Ravens and will likely make his team debut Saturday. The 2016 fourth-round pick was recently cut by Las Vegas, but he'll have a better chance of securing a spot in Baltimore's receiving corps that lacks established options behind 2021 first-round pick Rashod Bateman.

Signing with Ravens

Robinson's signing with the Ravens, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Robinson was surprisingly released by the Raiders on Tuesday, but he has found a new team just three days later. The former Chiefs wideout has a better chance to secure a prominent role in a Baltimore receiving corps that lacks established options behind 2021 first-round pick Rashod Bateman.

Cut by Vegas

The Raiders released Robinson on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: In a somewhat surprising development, Robinson was among the first round of Raiders cuts this month. The wide receiver has six years of NFL experience, all with the Chiefs, but he never surpassed 45 catches, 470 yards or four TDs in a given season. Robinson will seek out another opportunity elsewhere.

Two catches Sunday

Robinson caught two of three targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 26-20 preseason win over the Vikings.

Analysis: Robinson got to get some run as a starter with his new club Sunday due to all of the Raiders' inactive regulars (rest). The former Kansas City Chief was able to get on the same page with fellow newcomer, Jarrett Stidham, on a couple of throws. Las Vegas' starting receiving unit is very top-heavy, so Robinson will have to carve out a backup role this preseason. His next opportunity will come against the Dolphins on Saturday in the second week of the NFL preseason.

Brings speed to Vegas WR corps

Quarterback Derek Carr views Robinson as a player that can stretch the field for the Raiders this season, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Raiders have no shortage of precise route runners at wide receiver, as Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow are both known for that skill. Offseason addition Keelan Cole is another reliable route runner, while Robinson brings a different skill set, which has intrigued Carr. "Robinson has flashed that talent, that speed that we have seen happen against us for a few years," Carr said. "He's flashed those same things here, that ability to be someone that can stretch the field and also run the intermediate to short stuff and make something happen afterwards."

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.

Jan 4, 2022 11:39 AM EST

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.

Dec 28, 2021 6:05 PM EST

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.

Dec 21, 2021 10:40 AM EST

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.

Nov 24, 2021 7:24 AM EST

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.
