Dynasty & Redraft: WR Allen Robinson, Bears

Recommended Posts


The Chicago Sun-Times' Jason Lieser reports Bears WR Allen Robinson plans to report to minicamp on Tuesday.

Robinson didn't report to OTAs the past two weeks despite signing his $18 million franchise tag, bringing into question whether he'd hold out for the mandatory portion of Phase 3 workouts, too. Lieser reports otherwise as Robinson is expected to participate Tuesday-Thursday with the rest of the team before breaking away for a month prior to training camp. There's no denying Robinson, 28 in August, is disgruntled at the organization's lack of commitment in him long-term, but this development is still terrific news for his outlook from Justin Fields, the best quarterback the former will have ever played with the moment Andy Dalton is benched.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Bears and franchise-tagged WR Allen Robinson are "unlikely" to reach a long-term deal before next week's deadline.

"The two have had no substantive talks in months about a long-term deal," Pelissero reported. "At this point, it seems unlikely a long-term deal will get done." Chicago has been perpetually timid about re-signing Robinson over the past two years, though he did report to the mandatory portion of OTAs amid that turmoil. 28 in August, Robinson is fully expected to play out his $18 million franchise tag rather than holding out. Whether the two sides can even come close to a long-term deal next offseason is truly up in the air.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bears are not expected to agree to a contract extension with Allen Robinson before the tag extension deadline. 

Robinson is currently signed to the franchise tag, worth $18 million. The stud receiver has been pushing for a new deal over the past two years but Chicago has been unwilling to pay him top dollar. Assuming no deal gets done in the final hours of the extension window, Robinson will play out 2021 on the tag and prepare to hit the open market next year. The Bears could still choose to tag him again or both parties could come to an agreement before he talks to other teams in free agency. Robinson has racked up 2,397 receiving yards over the past two seasons despite slogging through some of the league's worst quarterback play. Justin Fields has the potential to be the best quarterback Robinson has caught passes from as soon as he earns the starting nod. If Fields exceeds expectations as a rookie, Robinson's value could hit a fevered pitch heading into the 2022 offseason.

My favorite WR in the league right now.

This poor guy's QB history might be an all time worst.

I truly think A. Rob is the dark horse to 1. Significantly outperform his ADP.  2. Contend for top 5 WR in the league.  His QB history is atrocious and he has been a stud.
