Allen Robinson, WR

Allen Robinson is very underrated throughout the league. He is coming off the second-best performance of his career. This all while playing in an offense that found itself stagnant too often. You can tell he is in great shape and fully healthy after tearing his ACL in 2017. Personally, I view him as a top-15 wide receive every year now despite my doubts when they signed him in 2018.

He has proven to be more than just a throw it down the field and get it type of receiver. Although he still excels in that area, he has made some spectacular catches in all areas of the field. His catch rate in 2019 was the best of his career at 63.6 percent. If he can maintain that he will push top-10 guys consistently and honestly even top-five receivers too.

Last year, Robinson was seventh in receptions with 98. He was 14th in yards with 1,147. He was in a very large tie for sixth with seven touchdowns. Not to mention, he was sixth in the league with 63 first downs gained (this was technically a four-way tie for fifth). Robinson is a beast and deserves a new contract.

In fact, that scares me somewhat. Could be opt out of the 2020 season because he does not have a new deal in place? That is somewhat of a risk on his part. Many players do it and the likelihood of him getting injured is probably higher than him contracting COVID-19, but that might not stop him from using it as a weapon to sit out and get paid. Let us hope the Chicago Bears do right by him at some point and he does not opt out of the 2020 season.
