2. Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears

Allen Robinson is a big-time signing for the Bears, and he could be set for an excellent return.

It’s understandable why Robinson’s fantasy draft stock has dropped. It’s been almost three years since his last great season. He disappointed in 2016 with 883 yards and six touchdowns, well below expectations. But the entire Jaguars offense struggled that year. It’s hard to put much blame on Robinson.

Last year Robinson caught just one pass for 17 yards before going down with a season-ending knee injury.

With a year to get healthy, the former Pro Bowler and 2015 co-leader in receiving touchdowns could make a major impact in Chicago.

There’s a lot to like about the Bears’ offense on paper, and new head coach Matt Nagy’s arrival is good news for the entire unit. If second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky can continue to improve, Robinson could be in for a big year.

In 2015, Robinson was dominant with 1,400 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. The 6-foot-3 pass catcher is just 24 years old and has a lot to prove.

Robinson is currently being mocked in fourth round, according to Fantasy Football Calculator’s ADP, making him the 21st-ranked wide receiver. That’s incredible value. If he continues to slip under the radar, Robinson could be a league-winning pickup in the fourth round.
