RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Robison has missed just one game since the beginning of the 2009 season, as he's become a key factor on the Vikings' defensive line. During the 2015 season, he recorded 34 tackles, five sacks, and one forced fumble in 16 games played. Now 33 years old, the team may begin slightly reducing his snap count, especially given the come-up of second-year defensive end Danielle Hunter. Expect Robison to remain the starter opposite Everson Griffen throughout the season given his lack of an injury history.

2015

Robison suffered a pectoral injury while working out last spring and it's not clear if he'll be completely ready for Week 1. Coming off a disappointing 4.5-sack, 24-tackle season, Robison is expected to start at left defensive end. He averaged 8.5 sacks and 39.3 tackles from 2011 to 2013.

2014

Robison had a career-high nine sacks last season. He'll be counted on as Minnesota's top pass rushing threat after the departure of Jared Allen. He'll start at left defensive end.

2013

Robison recorded 8.5 sacks last season and is projected to start at DE opposite Jared Allen in 2013.

2009

Robinson is the backup to Jared Allen at strong side defensive end. He had 14 tackles, 2.5 sacks along with a forced fumble in 2008, but do not expect any fantasy impact from Robinson in an IDP league in 2009.

2008

Robison should serve as Minnesota's primary backup at defensive end behind both Jared Allen and Ray Edwards. He reached 4.5 sacks last season, a number he could again approach in 2008, and would see his value increase greatly if one of the two starters were to get hurt.

2007

The rookie Robinson will serve as a pass-rush specialist and special teams player for the Vikings.
