Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 15 vs MIA (2 / 2 / 44 / 1 rec)
It was not an overly impressive game for Robinson this week, but he did step up and make a big touchdown catch. The Vikings were fading a little in the second half. Cousins had thrown an interception returned for a touchdown going in to half time and the defense gave up a 75-yard touchdown run to open the second half. In steps Robinson who made a 40-yard touchdown catch to stop the bleeding. He split the defense right down the middle of the field and caught a perfectly thrown ball by Cousins. He only had 1 other catch for 4 yards in the game but came up with the big touchdown when it mattered. Robinson has a ton of chemistry with Cousins from their days in Washington and could be a sneaky weapon for the Vikings down the stretch.
2018 Week 13 vs NE (9 / 5 / 37 / 0 rec)
What could have been for Robinson if Cousins had a better day under center. Robinson had 9 targets this week, but only snagged 5 receptions. His longest catch was 10 yards and everything else was just short out routes. There was a period where the Vikings ran the same play 3 times and Robinson caught it along the sideline each time. The big play went from being a touchdown to an interception very quickly. Robinson ran a go route up the seam and Cousins looked to have made a great throw to a sliding Robinson for a score. Unfortunately, he was unable to hold on to the ball, and after the ball rolled on the back of one defender it got kicked into the air and intercepted by another defender. Robinson had another exchange in the corner of the end zone that could have been a touchdown had it not been for interference that was not called. The defender had wrapped his arm around Robinson and held him to the point that he could not jump and make a play on the ball. It was the same referee who did not throw a flag when Thielen was interfered with in the exact same spot. It was a tough game for the Vikings, but Robinson could have easily had 2 touchdowns and changed the outcomes of the game.
2018 Week 11 vs CHI (2 / 2 / 24 / 1 rec)
Outside of his first game with the Vikings where he scored 2 touchdowns, there has not been a lot to cheer about for Robinson. He is overshadowed by Diggs and Thielen and is even firmly behind Treadwell. He got his chance in the 4th quarter this week with the Bears shutting out the Vikings other top weapons. Robinson ran a skinny post route in the red zone and hauled in the 13-yard touchdown. His initial defender made a feeble diving attempt to tackle him, but Robinson powered his way into the end zone. The ensuing 2-point conversion brought the Vikings within a score, but a late field goal by the Bears put the game away. Robinson is completely dependent on touchdowns and has not been a viable option in the Viking offense for the majority of the season.
2018 Week 7 vs NYJ (3 / 1 / 34 / 1 rec)
The offense went through Thielen and Murray this week, but Robinson managed to bring in 1 big reception. Robinson hauled in 1 of his 3 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown. It was a deep pass down the sideline that looked a lot like the pass to Thielen earlier in the game. Robinson got a step on his man and Cousins fired the perfect pass to his outside shoulder. He has shown a lot of rapport with Cousins but is still not a reliable fantasy option going forward.
2018 Week 4 vs LAR (2 / 2 / 33 / 2 rec)
After serving on the practice squad with Cousins for the Redskins, he now got his chance to start for the Vikings. The bulk of the targets are always going to go to Thielen and Diggs, but it was Robinson who made the difference in the red zone. He had touchdown catches of 16 and 17 yards to help keep the Vikings in the game. The first catch came on a blown coverage by the Rams. They were playing zone coverage and the corner vacated his zone to jump on an underneath route and left Robinson wide open in the end zone all by himself. It was an easy pitch and catch with Cousins from there. The second touchdown was a poor route run by Robinson that just happened to work out. He ran to the exact same spot as Kyle Rudolph in the end zone but was able to run under the ball before anyone else. The 2 players even touched on their route and that is something that should never happen. Robinson did not see any other targets during the game but showed that he still had chemistry with Cousins. It will be interesting to see how much work he takes away from Laquon Treadwell over the course of the season.
