Allen Robinson has become the Jaguars' top receiver and figures to remain a prominent pass catcher in 2016. But can he replicate the 80 catches for 1,400 yards (a 17.5 yard per catch average) and 14 touchdowns? To put it into perspective, those numbers, including the receiving average, have been met or exceeded five times by three other receivers in NFL history: Calvin Johnson, Randy Moss and Jerry Rice. And in every instance, the receiver came back the next year with incredible receiving yards, insane touchdown numbers or both. When you consider Robinson's catch rate of 53 percent on 151 targets, it's a little tough to expect a repeat season, especially since the Jaguars took steps this offseason to improve their run game and defense in hopes of not being forced to play from behind as often. Nonetheless, it's difficult to see Robinson's numbers totally shrink, especially since he's averaged 5.1 receptions and 77.9 yards per game in his last 25 games, including 16 scores. If we pencil him in for over 1,250 yards and nine touchdowns then we shouldn't be disappointed. Robinson is a Top 10 Fantasy receiver worth a second-round choice in all formats, soon after (or maybe just before) the selection of Dez Bryant.
Robinson sat out of OTAs on Friday with a hamstring injury, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. While the specifics of the injury remain unclear, Robinson was unable to practice with the team on Friday. Coach Gus Bradley indicated he wasn't sure if Robinson would participate in the Jaguars' upcoming mandatory minicamp that starts on Jun. 14, so it's definitely something to keep an eye on over the next week or so. Robinson exploded for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns on 80 receptions last season and should remain the team's top receiving threat once back from what is widely considered a minor hamstring injury.
Robinson caught five of nine targets for 108 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans. The second-year wideout capped his excellent season off appropriately, topping the 100-yard mark for the sixth time and upping his season total to 80 catches. Robinson failed to reach the end zone for the first time since Week 11, but he will still finish tied for the league lead with 14 touchdown grabs. Robinson should head into next season as an extremely desirable fantasy option, as he and Blake Bortles both showed a tremendous amount of growth this year and will look to continue their strong rapport.
Robinson (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Texans. Robinson's shoulder issue was never expected to hold him out, and the better news is that head coach Gus Bradley indicated this week that Robinson and Allen Hurns would play their normal number of snaps despite the team heading into Sunday's game at 5-10 and well removed from playoff consideration.
Robinson (shoulder) is listed as probablefor Sunday's game against the Texans. Meanwhile, coach Gus Bradley relayed Friday that the team's top two wideouts -- Robinson and Allen Hurns -- are in line to handle their normal roles Sunday, as opposed to the 5-10 squad potentially giving reserves Marqise Lee and/or Rashad Greene added snaps in the team's season finale.
Robinson (shoulder) was a full participant at Thursday's practice. After being limited by a shoulder injury to open the week of practice, Robinson put in a full workout Thursday, and at this point it appears that his status for Sunday's meeting with the Texans is not in much, if any, jeopardy.
