Chicago Bears: 5 most underrated players?
3. Allen Robinson
Some people are going to question how a free agent wide receiver could be underrated. Especially coming off of an ACL injury. How can Robinson even be rated let alone overrated at this point?
However, as someone who writes every day about this team, I have seen enough around the media airwaves to call it. There have been articles that stated Allen Robinson is the most likely player to disappoint this season.

Another stating that the wide receiver corps is still a weakness because it is so hard to trust Robinson to carry the unit. Evan Silva, a well-known fantasy prognosticator is selling on Allen Robinson at his price. Mike Clay has Robinson with a career low in catch percentage. I see it.
It is time to call it. Allen Robinson is going to have a great season. He practiced by the end of OTAs and is expected to be a full go by the start of training camp. This is a team that signed him to a major extension while letting Cameron Meredith walk with a similar injury. They saw both and chose the on-field talent to be healthier as well. Are their doctors that off?
If Robinson is healthy, he is with the best quarterback of his career this season. Yes, Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears are going to spread the football around. However, to underestimate Robinson at this point may be the wrong bet.
