Windy City Buy


If you’re looking for an Alpha WR and your trade deadline hasn’t passed, I suggest you target Robinson as a buy low. A 6’2 220lb jump ball and field-stretching monster. Allen Robinson is an amazing athletic WR who some are forgetting about in Dynasty.

Being a six-year veteran he feels old but he’s still only 26. For context, Allen Robinson was entering his 4th year when Cooper Kupp was a rookie and is 39 days younger. Robinson has never had the luxury of playing with a good consistent quarterback, however, he has still been able to produce yards or TD’s. Although it has been a while since AR15’s massive 1400 yard 14 TD season,(2015) he’s still been quite good. Even with Mitchell Trubisky this year, he’s still on pace to break 1,000 yards and leads the Bears in TD’s with a measly 3. A-Rob still ranks 6th in the NFL in target share with a healthy 26%.

Mitch might not be very good but one thing is for sure, he peppers Allen frequently when under pressure. While not every pass is a gem, Robinson is doing well hauling in 57 catches on 86 targets for 633 yards. Recently I posted two polls on Twitter whether or not in Dynasty you’d want JuJu Smith-Schuster (23) or A-Rob (26). In one I named JuJu and A-Rob, the other just listed 2019 stats. JuJu crushed in the first poll no surprise. I’d rather own JuJu in Dynasty as well. But I was surprised to see the results of the blind poll being a near-complete flip in favor of A-Rob.

While I doubt Ryan Pace gives up on Trubisky next year (unless they trade him), I do see the Bears taking  Tua Tagovailoa if he falls to the 2nd round and letting him redshirt 2020.

One Possible trade:

I personally traded for Robinson in my main Dynasty league after identifying him as a buy low. I gave up D.J. Chark and received Allen Robinson and a 2021 first. Just to give an example of what you could get (trade happened week 7). If your deadline hasn’t passed and you’re making a push for hardware or rebuilding, Robinson is a prime buy target.
