2019 Fantasy Outlook
Robinson heads into his fourth season as a sleeper to break out given the uncertain availability of Tyreek Hill, while Sammy Watkins' foot history is another reason why Robinson might need to step up as a starter. The 2016 fourth-round pick out of Florida has mostly been a bust in the NFL, struggling to earn snaps over the mediocre Chris Conley while posting pedestrian production otherwise. But he only turns 25 in September, and his familiarity with the Chiefs system matters given how dependent the team might be on Watkins and rookie second-round pick Mecole Hardman. Particularly in PPR, Robinson is a late-round flier to consider in any format with 12 or more teams. Read Past Outlooks

Gaining offensive responsibilities
WRKansas City Chiefs
June 21, 2019
Robinson has upped his offensive responsibilities this offseason, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
This shouldn't come as a major surprise with Tyreek Hill unavailable due to an indefinite suspension. Although he was just lightly involved in the offense last postseason, Robinson seems the most likely candidate to step in early in the season should Hill miss time. Taylor notes that rookie Mecole Hardman's role will likely expand as his understanding of the offense grows, which may eventually carve into Robinson's snaps. As long as Robinson is in the starting lineup for the Patrick Mahomes-led Chiefs, he may be worthy of consideration in deep season-long leagues and in daily formats.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
A fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Robinson didn't record an offensive stat in his first season with the Chiefs. His playing time increased drastically in his second year with Kansas City, following the departure of Jeremy Maclin, as Robinson received the second-most snaps of any wide receiver behind Tyreek Hill (586). Unfortunately, the increased playing time only led to 21 catches on 39 targets for 212 yards for the season. While the change under center to Patrick Mahomes -- with whom Robinson displayed chemistry during the 2017 preseason -- could prove fruitful for the third-year wideout, the team's addition of Sammy Watkins this offseason and numerous mouths to feed (Hill, Travis Kelce, Kareem Hunt) already on the roster dampens the possibility of a breakout season for Robinson.
Robinson contributed almost exclusively on special teams as a rookie, seeing just five snaps on offense all season. He doesn't factor into the return game, minimizing any potential value for him as a second-year player. The 22-year-old's role doesn't figure to expand much in 2017 unless he proves something he couldn't last year and he may need to battle for a roster spot out of training camp.
While the rookie wideout possesses many of the tools of a successful wide receiver, character concerns resulted in falling to the Chiefs in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Considering the team doesn't have a clear No. 2 option behind Jeremy Maclin, a strong camp from the rookie could put him in contention for snaps on Sundays. However, he will need to keep things under control off the field if he's to contribute on it.
