Week 1 vs. TB
Receiving: 1 / 6 / 0 on 4 targets
He might be listed as a starting WR on the depth charts but Cleveland might as well just send 10 guys out there on offense. His route running was horrible and he could not get separation on the DBs for much of the game. Robiskie disappears to the point you don't even notice him. Tampa had no problems whatsoever in covering him throughout the game.
Week 2 vs. KC
Receiving: 1 / 12 / 0 on 5 targets
Much like last week, Brian Robiskie didn't do much with his targets thanks to an inability to separate from coverage. And much like last week, he still has a long way to go before he's even just an average receiver.
Week 5 vs. ATL
Receiving: 1 / 5 / 0 on 1 targets
Robiskie got a few looks in the desperation comeback bid, but he is clearly fourth on the depth chart on a team that doesn't pass the ball all that well. The future is not looking very promising for him.
Week 7 vs. NO
Receiving: 3 / 25 / 0 on 4 targets
Robiskie had a couple receptions, but he just doesn't have any skills that worry his opponents. At best Robiskie can work his way into a short-yardage, possession type of role.
Week 9 vs. NE
Receiving: 1 / 20 / 0 on 1 targets
Robiskie had a nice catch on a roll out by McCoy, but the Browns ran the ball so much that no Browns receiver was consistently given the opportunity to catch the football.
Week 12 vs. CAR
Receiving: 7 / 50 / 0 on 7 targets
Robiskie got a handful of quick targets from Jake Delhomme close to the line of scrimmage, but he did little after the catch. His numbers may raise some eyebrows in PPR leagues, but he didn't flash anything that made you think he is in line for bigger numbers in the future, especially with Delhomme on shaky ground.
Week 13 vs. MIA
Receiving: 2 / 10 / 0 on 2 targets
You would have had trouble spotting Robiskie in this game, as he quietly chipped in two short catches. On the bright side, he was 2-for-2. On the downside, Delhomme clearly only has eyes for Massaquoi and Watson when looking downfield.
Week 14 vs. BUF
Receiving: 2 / 17 / 0 on 3 targets
Again, Robiskie is just a possession guy, and poses no real
threat to the defense. Even so, Robiskie was unable to get open, or at least
unable to get open and have Delhomme look his way.
Week 15 vs. CIN
Receiving: 5 / 82 / 1 on 6 targets
When Colt McCoy wasn't running for his life, or throwing a check down to avoid a sack, Brian Robiskie was the guy he looked to downfield. On the opening drive, McCoy executed a play action pass, scrambling to the right after the fake and then throwing back over the middle to Robiskie for a nice 17 yard reception. He was also the target of several quick slant patters for short gains, but helped move the chains when it was needed. His biggest contribution came late in the 4th quarter when McCoy threw deep to him down the left side of the field. Robiskie went up to make a good catch, but the safety took a bad angle and missed him completely. When Robiskie landed, there was no one between him and the end zone, and he had an easy sprint to the end zone.
Week 16 vs. BAL
Receiving: 2 / 35 / 1 on 5 targets
Brian Robiskie is another young receiver the Browns should be excited about. Robiskie made a diving catch in the end zone off a Massaquoi pass for a nice touchdown in the 1st quarter. Robiskie did a fantastic job of securing the ball under his body. Robiskie ran some good routes and got good separation often but was missed by McCoy on a couple of sure touchdown passes, including one at the end of the first half. With a more seasoned QB at the controls, Robiskie has a great deal of upside in this offense as a good possession receiver.
Week 17 vs. PIT
Receiving: 2 / 35 / 1 on 7 targets
Robiskie is another young receiver with talent. He has scored in his last three games and appears to heading into the off-season with some momentum. While both of his catches today were a bit fluky (one clanked of the hands of Hillis and into Robiskie's while the other was essentially a hail-mary from the 20 where Pittsburgh's defensive back got turned around), Robiskie's target numbers are promising. He and Massaquoi can perhaps be just good enough as starting receivers to keep Josh Cribbs in a "specialist" type of role where he can work the slot, catch screens, and of course run wildcat plays.
