2021 Fantasy Outlook
While Robinson could see a few more targets now that Sammy Watkins is no longer in the mix, he seems unlikely to become a high-volume receiver in the Kansas City passing offense, which is in line to be paced this season by fellow wideouts Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman, as well as star tight end Travis Kelce. Robinson's 45 catches and 466 receiving yards last year were career highs, numbers that put him on the fantasy fringe. Of course, if injuries hit the team's high-profile pass-catchers, operating within the context of a Patrick Mahomes-helmed attach does carry a degree of upside for any player thrust into a key role in such a scenario.

Season-high target count in Week 18

January 11, 2022
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.

Robinson wound up second among the Chiefs wideouts in terms of offensive snaps behind Sammy Watkins, but that was largely the result of Tyreek Hill missing four games due to a collarbone injury. Outside of a six-catch outburst for 172 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2, Robinson didn't make much of his increase in opportunity, finishing out the season with 32 catches for 449 yards and four touchdowns. Second-year wideout Mecole Hardman also figures to be an obstacle in Robinson's path toward snaps in 2020, but Robinson should at least be safe in terms of a 53-man roster spot.
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.
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.
