Robinson caught three passes for 50 yards in Sunday's 16-14 win over the Cardinals. Robinson was second on the team with seven targets, but he was the only Chicago wide receiver to post more than 35 yards. Once the Bears were down 14 points in the first quarter, it looked as if they would have to rely heavily upon the pass, but after the defense settled down and got the team back into the contest, it was clear that the coaching staff preferred to lean upon the rushing attack. Robinson did most of his damage on a double move down the right sideline that netted him 39 yards, accounting for the only long pass that Mitch Trubisky completed during the game. With this being the first game in which he's posted fewer than 61 receiving yards, he'll continue to be a solid weekly fantasy option.
Robinson caught 10 of 14 targets for 83 yards in Monday night's 24-17 win over the Seahawks. Robinson comfortably led the Bears in all major receiving categories, making a strong impact in his home debut. In fact, Monday marked just the second time in Robinson's career that he finished with double-digit catches in a game. While that's certainly an encouraging sign to begin his time in Chicago, the team's top wideout will now look to find the end zone for the first time in his new colors Week 3 versus the Cardinals.
Robinson caught four passes for 61 yards in Chicago's Week 1 loss to the Packers. Robinson looked to be in his 2015 form when leaping into the air and making a contested catch on a downfield pass for his biggest gain of the evening. Although he wasn't very involved in the Bears' first couple possessions, he ended up leading the team with seven targets, seeing passes both near the boundary and over the middle. Had the Bears not been playing most of the second half with a lead, he likely would've been more involved, but the playcalling became fairly conservative during that time.
Robinson will skip Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic Chicago reports. Robinson is among 31 Bears players who will sit out Saturday's preseason contest, seemingly joining the rest of the team's starters on the sidelines. It remains to be seen whether the coaching staff intends to reinsert starters for the preseason finale, but Robinson should be ready to roll as the team's top wideout for Week 1.
Robinson was not targeted during Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos. Even though Robinson didn't see any passes come his direction, it was still an encouraging night for anyone with investments in the receiver, as the Bears got creative with Robinson and delivered him several snaps in both the slot and on the boundary -- something that rarely happened during his time in Jacksonville. Robinson's next chance to log his first target as a member of the Bears will come in the team's third preseason game next Saturday against the Chiefs.
