Robinson caught five passes (eight targets) for 42 yards in Sunday's 15-6 victory over the Rams.
Robinson led the Bears in catches, targets and receiving yards, which is more of an indicator of how ineffective Mitchell Trubisky was in his return to action rather than a sign of a big game from the wideout. The 25-year-old has shown flashes of that dynamic receiver we saw early in his time with the Jaguars, but his performance has mainly been capped in an offensive that relies heavily on two running backs and a stout defense. Robinson is still usually around the top of the target list for the Bears on a weekly basis, so he maintains flex value heading into Sunday's matchup with the Packers.
Robinson checked in a distant second in receptions and receiving yardage to Tarik Cohen on the day, but his line was certainly a welcome sight after consecutive sub-40-yard efforts. Robinson's production has been a bit spotty in his first Bears season, but he's now averaged between Sunday's 15.8 and 22.2 yards per catch in three of his past four contests. Robinson will look to continue making an impact downfield in a Week 14 showdown against the Rams.
Robinson took a back seat to several other pass catchers while working with quarterback Chase Daniel for the first time. The highlight of his afternoon was an impressive 29-yard grab down the right sideline in the first half, and Daniel also targeted him deep, albeit unsuccessfully, on one other occasion. Robinson's production remains a bit hard to trust irrespective of who's under center, as he's followed up a season-best 6-133-2 line in Week 10 with back-to-back sub-40-yard outings. He'll look to up his numbers against the Giants in a Week 13 conference battle on Dec. 2.
Robinson caught three passes for 39 yards in Chicago's 25-20 win over the Vikings.
Robinson saw quite a bit of the Vikings' top cornerback Xavier Rhodes which made it difficult to provide Mitch Trubisky with the type of separation that would have led to a more-productive evening. In addition, the Bears played with a lead for almost the entire contest, so there was no urgency to send more than seven targets Robinson's way. With just one explosive outing on the season, he'll continue to be a volume-based starting fantasy option going forward.
Robinson made a splash in his return from a two-game absence, generating a season high in receiving yards while also scoring multiple touchdowns for the first time in a Bears uniform. The 25-year-old looked to be at full health while hauling in 36- and 26-yard scoring throws from Mitchell Trubisky, an encouraging sign for both the Bears and fantasy owners. Robinson will look to put together a successful encore against the Vikings in a big Week 11 divisional clash.
