Allen Robinson, WR, Los Angeles Rams
Robinson had five receptions for 54 yards on a season-high seven targets against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. In each of his last two games, on each side of a bye, he has five catches and over 50 yards. It doesn’t sound exciting, but when he had less than 25 yards in each of the three games beforehand double-digit PPR points in two straight is a serious sign of life.
An added layer here is the ankle injury Cooper Kupp suffered in the final two minutes on Sunday. He may have dodged a major injury, but his status for Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is lined up to be up in the air throughout the upcoming week.
Robinson is available in a solid chunk of fantasy leagues. A struggling Rams’ offense lowers his upside. But increased involvement, and the question around Kupp’s injury, makes him worth checking on and adding for wide receiver depth in leagues where he’s available.
