Chicago Bears: 5 discounted replacements for Allen Robinson in 2022

Potential Chicago Bears Target: Will Fuller, Miami Dolphins
After an incredible (and surprisingly healthy) start to the 2020 season for Will Fuller, he got pegged for using performance-enhancing drugs and was suspended for the remainder of the season and for the beginning of 2020 as well. Because of that, he only earned himself a one-year rental contract to prove that he can stay healthy without the PEDs.
Fuller was a first-round pick in 2016 for the Houston Texans. Since being drafted, the most games Fuller has played in is 14 and that was his rookie season. Since then he’s played in 10, 7, 11, and 11 games. He mainly was a deep threat as a second target alongside DeAndre Hopkins from 2016-2019 as the most yards he got in that span in a single season was 670.
In 2020 though, Fuller stepped into the Hopkins role. He earned himself 75 targets in 11 games and was on pace for almost 110 targets. He finished the season with 53 catches for 879 yards and eight touchdowns. At a 16-game pace, he would’ve tallied 77 receptions for 1,279 yards and 12 touchdowns. Much like Chark, the deep threat capability of Fuller paired with Mooney would be deadly.
