Fantasy Football Week 5 Wide Receiver Preview: Projections, DFS plays, stats to know, more

Fantasy Football Week 5 Wide Receiver Preview: Projections, DFS plays, stats to know, more

Everything you need to know about the wide receiver position in Week 5


The worst feeling in Fantasy is when you spend a high draft pick on a player, give up on them too early, and then watch them boom on someone else’s roster. That’s why we preach caution early in the season, even if the results are disastrous. For Allen Robinson those disastrous results have gone on for too long to ignore.

Robinson has somehow been worse in Los Angeles than he was for the Bears. He’s averaging fewer yards per target, catch, and game than he did in 2021. His catch rate has fallen to an abysmal 50% and he’s only seen more than five targets once all season. 

While Matthew Stafford and the Rams offense have all kinds of problems outside of Cooper Kupp, it’s hard to blame Robinson’s performance on those problems. Matthew Stafford has had considerably more success throwing to Tyler Higbee and Ben Skowronek than he has to Robinson. The 29-year-old has now produced just 49 catches for 542 yards and two touchdowns over his last 17 NFL games.

Is there hope for Robinsons still? Maybe as a low-volume touchdown-dependent flex. When a player at this stage of his career is this bad for this long, they rarely rebound. You can feel safe dropping Robinson for someone who may actually help your Fantasy team.
