RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After being signed away from the Saints, Robinson will immediately be in the mix for playing time and will probably battle with rookie Craig Mager for nickel corner snaps in 2015.
Robinson missed all of the 2013 season with a knee injury. In 2012, Robinson had a breakout fantasy year, compiling 63 tackles, 18 pass defenses and three interceptions as a starter for the Saints, Robinson's pre-injury production, however, was likely the result of 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. With incumbent Corey White still around and the Saints adding Stanley Jean-Baptiste through the draft this offseason, Robinson will likely face still competition to reclaim his starting cornerback position and likely an uphill battle to come anywhere near matching his 2012 fantasy production.
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.
