News: Redskins wide receiver Aldrick Robinson gets his first taste of the Beltway rivalry Week 14 on Sunday at home against Baltimore. The Ravens have been decent against opposing wide receivers this season, but allowed five catches to three different Pittsburgh wideouts just last week. That said, the Ravens haven't given up 100 yards receiving to a wideout since both Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd did it for the Patriots back in Week 3.
Analysis: Robinson has three touchdowns on the season for the Redskins and all three have been passes of 49 yards or more from quarterback Robert Griffin III. Robinson has definitely been a deep-ball threat for the Redskins and two of his touchdowns have come in the last three games. That said, Robinson hasn't caught more than one pass in a game since catching two Week 2 at St. Louis. He has gone four games without catching a pass at all and wasn't even targeted once last week against the Giants. Robinson has low-end Fantasy value for the Week 14 game.
News: Washington wide receiver Aldrick Robinson was targeted just once on Thursday, but he made the most of it, hauling in a 68-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter of the team's 38-31 victory over the Cowboys.
Analysis: Robinson now has two touchdowns in two straight games since the bye. He has just three catches since Week 6, but two of them have been for touchdowns. While his Fantasy numbers over the last two weeks may look good, Robinson probably won't be scoring a touchdown per game on a long pass -- it's not sustainable. He should be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
News: Redskins receiver Aldrick Robinson made one catch in the Week 11 won over the Eagles Sunday. It was a big one. Robinson broke free and was wide open on a deep bomb from quarterback Robert Griffin III. Known for his drops, Robinson held on this time for a 49-yard touchdown. It was his only catch of the game.
Analysis: Robinson has two touchdown catches on the season, the last coming Week 1. He is definitely a deep-ball threat for RG3 and the Redskins but he also can often go without a catch altogether. He's been a bit of a disappointment and should not be targeted in Fantasy leagues for the Week 12 game on Thanksgiving in Dallas.
News: Washington wide receiver Aldrick Robinson got the start over Leonard Hankerson Sunday of Week 9 against Carolina. Robinson was expected to be more involved in the offense against the Panthers, according to coach Mike Shanahan. Plus, Hankerson has seen an inability to hold onto the football recently.
Analysis: Robinson had a touchdown in the opener against New Orleans and garnered some early-season attention because of it. However, Robinson's production quickly declined and he doesn't even have a catch in the last three games. But now it seems the Redskins' passing game needs a jump start and Robinson is a player that could help provide the spark. He is still not a startable option heading into Week 9 vs. Carolina, but this news means it's worth keeping tabs on his progress.
News: Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday it's time to get wide receiver Aldrick Robinson more involved on offense. Shanahan said the team is looking to replace the speed lost due to injuries to Pierre Garcon and Fred Davis. "He's gonna get some more playing time. I can guarantee that," Shanahan said.
Analysis: There you have it Fantasy owners. It's time to put Robinson on your watch list. Robinson had a touchdown in the opener against New Orleans and garnered some early-season attention because of it. However, Robinson's production quickly declined and he doesn't even have a catch in the last three games. But now it seems the Redskins' passing game needs a jump start and Robinson is a player that could help provide the spark. He is still not a startable option heading into Week 9 vs. Carolina, but this news means it's worth keeping tabs on his progress.
News: Washington wide receiver Aldrick Robinson was held to one grab in the Week 5 loss to the Falcons Sunday. Robinson caught one pass for 10 yards in the game as quarterback Robert Griffin III was injured in the third quarter and Kirk Cousins finished it out. Robinson was targeted just once in the game.
Analysis: Robinson returned to action after sitting out last week and saw just the one look from Griffin. Unfortunately, Robinson seems buried on the depth chart behind Pierre Garcon, Josh Morgan, Leonard Hankerson and even Santana Moss to this point. Robinson has big-play ability, but is not a recommended Fantasy start for Week 6 against Minnesota.
News: Redskins receiver Aldrick Robinson is active for the Week 5 game against the Falcons. Robinson was cleared of any concussion-related symptoms earlier in the week and was listed as probable entering the Sunday game. The Redskins are starting Josh Morgan and Pierre Garcon at wide receiver against the Falcons.
Analysis: Robinson is not a starter for Washington and has fallen behind Garcon, Leonard Hankerson, Morgan and Santana Moss on the depth chart. Robinson may be in line for a nice long grab or two, but we can't predict a solid performance from the youngster just yet. Robinson is not a recommended Fantasy play for Week 5 at this time.
News: Redskins coach Mike Shanahan told reporters Thursday wide receiver Aldrick Robinson passed his concussion test and practiced in full Thursday. He is expected to play Week 5 vs. Atlanta.
Analysis: Robinson sat out Week 4 after getting into a pregame collision with Brandon Meriweather. Robinson had a strong performance Week 1 after Pierre Garcon got hurt, but he was then leapfrogged by Leonard Hankerson and his recent performances have been less inspiring. Garcon is back in the lineup and getting closer to 100 percent, so Robinson won't have as big of role heading into Week 5. He is not a recommended Fantasy start.
News: Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that wide receiver Aldrick Robinson is currently in the concussion program and will be tested during the next few days in order to receive clearance to play in Week 5 against Atlanta. Robinson sustained the injury during a pregame collision with defensive back Brandon Meriweather and was ruled out for Sunday's game.
Analysis: Robinson was reportedly unconscious for more than a minute so the Redskins will obviously remain cautious with his recovery. The 23-year-old is part of a crowded receiving corps for Washington and has notched seven receptions for 104 yards. He reached the end zone in the season opener, but has failed to score in his past two games before being inactive in Week 4. He remains a low-end Fantasy option in most formats.
News: Redskins wide receiver Aldrick Robinson and safety Brandon Meriweather were hurt during a pregame collision, reported CSN Washington. Robinson bent over to pick up a football and was struck in the lead by Meriweather's left knee. Both players went down and stayed that way for several moments. Robinson remained down longer and was tended to by trainers and staff. Both players were ruled inactive for the game. Meriweather has a right knee injury and Robinson a concussion. He was knocked out for a minute or two, in fact.
Analysis: Robinson has seven catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in three games this season for Washington. He looked like a possible breakout player after scoring Week 1, but has been limited in recent weeks and behind Leonard Hankerson on the depth chart. Out for Week 4, Robinson can be avoided in all Fantasy formats.
News: Washington wide receiver Aldrick Robinson only saw three targets come his way in the Week 3 loss to the Bengals Sunday. Robinson only managed one reception in the game for 12 yards despite Pierre Garcon being inactive. The Washington passing game struggled as Fred Davis was the leading receiver and Santana Moss scored the only touchdown.
Analysis: Robinson went for a touchdown in the season opener but has caught just three passes for 52 yards since. Leonard Hankerson has taken over as the starter with Garcon out and Garcon is likely to return Week 4 at Tampa Bay. Robinson has little Fantasy value and is not a recommended option heading into the game against the Buccaneers.
News: Washington receiver Aldrick Robinson is hoping to rebound at home Week 3 against Cincinnati. Robinson dropped what could have been a huge pass and possibly a touchdown late in last week's loss at St. Louis and is looking for retribution after catching just two balls for 40 yards. Robinson has a chance to perform against a Bengals team allowing the ninth-most Fantasy points per game to opposing WRs this season. Mohamed Massaquoi went for 90 yards against them last week, after all.
Analysis: Robinson has definitely been a big-play receiver to this point. All six of his catches on the season have either gone for a first down or a touchdown. Robinson scored in the season opener and has been targeted plenty by quarterback Robert Griffin III thus far. He and Leonard Hankerson both lose a little value if Pierre Garcon is healthy, and both are really just flex options, at best, for Week 3.
News: Washington wide receiver Aldrick Robinson managed two catches for 40 yards in the Week 2 loss at St. Louis. Robinson entered the game as a starter but was targeted just three times by quarterback Robert Griffin III. His long grab went for 28 yards. The one catch he didn't make proved costly as it could have set up the Redskins go-ahead score. Robinson has six catches in two games for 92 yards and a touchdown.
Analysis: Robinson didn't have the game some thought he might with Pierre Garcon injured and not active. He dropped what could have been an easy touchdown, or at least a long reception, and failed to get into the end zone after scoring last week. Robinson wasn't even targeted as much as we thought he would be. Heading into Week 3 against the Bengals, Robinson is just a low-end flex option, at best.
News: With Pierre Garcon not expected to play against the Rams in Week 2, Redskins receiver Aldrick Robinson appears as a candidate to step into Garcon's role and rack up some numbers. That's what he did in Week 1 after Garcon went down, catching a touchdown pass on a slant pattern from Robert Griffin III. Head coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that several receivers will pick up the slack left by Garcon's absence but that Robinson's hands have improved to the point where he can make a difference. "He's got a lot more confidence in his hands. Being here at the OTAs and summer camp, he is a lot more comfortable in the system," Shanahan said. "He made a couple of big plays in preseason where he has a lot of confidence. You can see that. He has a lot of speed to separate from defensive backs throughout the league. Especially when you take look at the first game and the catches he made, he should have a lot of confidence."
Analysis: Robinson is looking for more Week 2 against a Rams team that allowed Lions' wide receivers to rack up 13 catches for 194 yards last week. That said, the Lions' WRs were kept out of the end zone, so another TD might be out of the question for Robinson. Nonetheless, RGIII is establishing his go-to guys and he certainly looked Robinson's way more often than Moss Week 1. We wouldn't be shocked if Robinson vanished simply because he's not as established as veterans like Santana Moss or Josh Morgan, but he sure seems like the replacement for Garcon and could put up some sweet numbers. We'd gamble on him depending on who else you have -- in standard formats he might outproduce Mike Williams, Michael Crabtree and all of the Titans' receivers. By the way, even if you don't have the confidence to start him you should pick him up and stash him just in case.
News: Washington wide receiver Aldrick Robinson heads into Week 2 at St. Louis after bursting onto the scene in the season-opening win at New Orleans. Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III found Robinson for his first career reception and touchdown in the game as he finished with four grabs for 52 yards and the score against the Saints. Robinson is looking for more Week 2 against a Rams team that allowed Lions' wide receivers to rack up 13 catches for 194 yards last week. That said, the Lions' WRs were kept out of the end zone, so another TD might be out of the question for Robinson.
Analysis: Robinson seemingly hurdled over Santana Moss in the pecking order of WRs after the Week 1 win at New Orleans. RG3 is establishing his go-to guys and he certainly looked Robinson's way more often than Moss Week 1. Still, we expect Moss to hit his stride and wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if Robinson disappears against the Rams. He's only had one good game, after all. It is probably not time to trust the 23-year-old Robinson in anything other than the deepest leagues as a Fantasy flex option for Week 2 at St. Louis.
News: Washington wide receiver Aldrick Robinson stepped up out of nowhere to become a viable option in the Redskins' passing game Week 1 at New Orleans. Helping the Redskins take down the Saints, Robinson caught four passes for 52 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown from rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. "I'm a big Aldrick Robinson fan," said coach Mike Shanahan after the game. Robinson was playing the X-receiver set with Pierre Garcon out of the game instead of Santana Moss. His first catch of Sunday's game was his first-career NFL catch and the TD was also obviously his first in the league.
Analysis: Robinson was targeted a team-high six times on Sunday as RG3 consistently looked his way in the passing game. Robinson has now jumped over Leonard Hankerson and possibly Moss on the depth chart and in Fantasy pecking order. Robinson might not be worth starting Week 2 at St. Louis, but he is at least worth an add in deeper Fantasy formats after his Week 1 performance.
News: Washington elevated WR Aldrick Robinson from its practice squad on Tuesday because another team was trying to sign him to their active roster, coach Mike Shanahan said. The Redskins released RB Ryan Torain to clear a spot on the roster for Robinson.
Analysis: Washington likes Robinson's speed and the team views him as a player worth developing. However, he is unlikely to make a key impact in the Redskins' season finale and should not be considered a worthwhile Fantasy option for now.
News: The Redskins took Aldrick Robinson of SMU with a sixth-round pick in the 2011 draft. The receiver led the Mustangs with 1,301 yards receiving last season with a school record 14 touchdowns.
Analysis: Robinson is a big-play receiver, not the kind of wideout who will be used on every down. Washington seems to have a few of these kinds of receivers already on the roster, so expectations for Robinson are minimal. There's more upside in fellow rookie Niles Paul; Robinson is only worth a late-round flier in deeper dynasty/keeper leagues and all rookie-only drafts.
