RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Robinson had a breakout fantasy year in 2013, if only because opposing quarterbacks continuously targeted him in coverage. Due to the high volume of passes thrown his way, Robinson had ample opportunity to post career-highs in both tackles and passes defended. However, with the Saints signing of Keenan Lewis this offseason, Robinson will likely be pushed to a nickel position, significantly curtailing his fantasy value.
Robinson is expected to start at cornerback for the Saints. Last year, Robinson recorded four interceptions in 15 games. While he isn't a great corner, he could be a sneaky IDP play as he should receive plenty of opportunities to get his hands on passes with opposing quarterbacks avoiding CB Jabari Greer on the other side of the field.
Robinson had his ups-and-downs in his rookie campaign but proved to be a serviceable cornerback when thrown into the fire as injuries decimated the Saints' secondary. Yet, if both Jabari Green and Tracy Porter are healthy, Robinson will likely assume responsibilities as the team's third cornerback and holds only marginal fantasy value in IDP leagues.
The Saints drafted Robinson with their first round pick in this year's NFL Draft. Some questioned the pick initially with the team seemingly set at the cornerback position for the first time in years. However, with the announcement that Malcolm Jenkins will begin the transition from corner to free safety, the skeptics have been quieted for the time being. Nevertheless, Robinson will likely not see much action in his first year as a pro.
