I drafted him as my WR2. I put my trust in this guy to make big things happen. If he doesn't step up, then Roberto Aguayo's Draft Busts will be winless this season.

 

Also, once I heard the news that Bradford was traded to the Vikings I knew I had to act quick. Luckily I snagged him in the second round. The other guys must not have heard the news yet. You know how it goes... Early bird gets the worm, and all that jazz.

This has got to be your first ever fantasy team...

I think you better learn to live with disappointment

He could have a career year here and break 400 yards, but he's a deep threat specialist, he's not got the skill set to be a #2 WR anymore than Sanu has the skill set to be a deep threat specialist. 

One of Robinsons biggest liabilities is his 184lb frame COMBINED with his 29" arms with small hands. As a deep threat with blazing speed going up against #3 and #4 defensive backs in single coverage it's much less of a problem than if he were facing the defenses #2 CB each snap trying to outmuscle on contested throws, break tackles and get off press or block in running game.

Sometimes sarcasm/joking is missed in writing. I'm hoping this is one of those. 

Vandy implied in another thread that Robinson was our best WR. It's amazing  what a few catches in preseason against backup defensive backs  can do to some fans.

So deep threat it is...

It's all about matchups too. If he's lined up in single coverage against a defenses much slower backup CB with Julio and Sanu requiring the defenses #1 and #2 Cbs with over the top help on other side of field, he can panic the slower CB into thinking he's running a go route and be wide open on an underneath route as well, I'm simply speaking his primary skill he's bringing is his deep threat ability to stretch the field. 

Sanu is also capable of catching a short pass and taking it to the house as we've all seen on tape, but Sanu's nitch is not as a deep threat.

I just want Ice to lead him more on the deep pass.  He under threw him.  He needs to recognize when the guy is going to break open on the long ball and throw it sooner.  If he wait a split second too long this is where we see the under throws.

I really think Ice will. Last year Ice did a good job of getting Hankerson the ball where he did some damage after the catch. Ice is good at easing coverages so when Rbinson has favorable coverage I'm certain we'll see Robinson utilized.
