The ex-Falcon will join his former offensive coordinator in the Bay Area with the announcement of Thursday's signing. Robinson reeled in 20 receptions for 323 yards and two touchdowns on 32 targets last season, but that was on a Falcons team that was loaded at receiver. In San Francisco, there's at least the possibility of a clearer path to more targets for Robinson seeing as the current receiving pecking order for the 49ers appears to be unsettled behind the newly acquired Pierre Garcon.
Robinson caught two passes for 36 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints.
Robinson's production slipped in the past two weeks after going off for 111 yards in Week 15, but he may be called upon to play a bigger role in the playoffs should the Falcons go up against a formidable Seattle pass defense in the divisional round. If whoever the Falcons play make it a point to double team Julio Jones, secondary receivers are going to need to step up.
With Julio Jones (toe) inactive, Robinson took advantage, leading the
Robinson caught three balls on six targets for 42 yards in Sunday's victory over the Rams.
Robinson and Taylor Gabriel both led the team in targets while Julio Jones (toe) and Mohamed Sanu (groin) were sidelined with injuries, but it was Gabriel who found the endzone. Robinson's value will be tied to the health of Jones and Sanu, so keep an eye on their injury situations as Week 15 approaches.
Robinson caught two balls for 18 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.
The touchdown helped save Robinson's stat line from mediocrity, as only three of the 32 passes thrown by Matt Ryan were in his direction. He'd get a boost in value if Julio Jones is sidelined with a turf toe condition, but for now he remains a tertiary option at best in the passing attack.
