News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 11): Mitchell Trubisky wised up and just started throwing the ball in Robinson's vicinity to make plays and jump start the offense. He's still a low ceiling play but at least Robinson's floor came up this week. Jalen Ramsey looms in Week 11, but at least some faith was restored.
Week 11: at Los Angeles Rams
FBG says: Tough matchup. The Chicago Bears' passing attack has been one of the NFL's most underwhelming units, this season relative to preseason expectations after an exceptional 2018 campaign under the tutelage of Matt Nagy. Mitchell Trubisky's lack of development under center is likely the driving force behind Chicago's offensive struggles in 2019. Trubisky's inability to quickly process what the defense is showing him has hindered his development as a passer, and he enters week 11 ranked 32nd in the NFL with just 5.9 adjusted yards per attempt. At wide receiver, Allen Robinson continues to shine in spite of the sub-par quarterback play in Chicago. Robinson has led the Bears in targets every week this season, and with nearly nine targets per game, he is one of the league's most consistent producers at the position. Out of the backfield, Tarik Cohen is the team's next-most reliable pass-catcher. Cohen's 55 targets are almost twice as many as the third-most targeted player on the roster. As the team's passing-down running back, the majority of Cohen's action has come in games that the Bears have trailed. Chicago's offensive line has been one of the league's worst this season, particularly at left guard where Rashaad Coward has been a trainwreck filling in for former-Pro Bowl guard, Kyle Long. A difficult primetime matchup against the Los Angeles Rams' talented defense will prove to be a challenging game for Mitchell Trubsiky and the Bears' offense to right the ship in 2019. The Los Angeles' Rams' defense is one of the deepest and most talented units in the NFL. Their strength starts in the trenches, where they field one of the league's most imposing groups pass-rushers. Aaron Donald, Dante Fowler, Jr., and Clay Matthews have combined for 19.5 sacks already this season, one of the best marks of any trio in the league. Surprisingly, Donald has tallied the fewest sacks of the three, with 5.5 on the year. Still, his ability to command, and beat, double teams is unmatched in the trenches, which regularly frees other pass-rushers like Fowler, Jr., and Matthews to wreak havoc on opposing aerial attacks. Behind this formidable pass-rush, the Rams field elite coverage players at linebacker as well as in the secondary. Corey Littleton at linebacker, Eric Weddle at safety, and Jalen Ramsey at cornerback all rank towards the top of the league standings at their respective positions against the pass. Although their numbers, on the whole, have been unimpressive, they are mostly a product of tough matchups against high-volume passing attacks. The Rams have allowed only 2 300-yard passing performances this season, with 1 coming against the Bengals due to an extremely high-volume 53-pass-attempt day for Andy Dalton and Cincinnati's passing attack.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 10 vs DET (9 / 6 / 86 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson started slowly against the Lions but got involved in the second quarter and dominated the beginning of the third quarter for a strong fantasy day. Robinson caught multiple balls over the middle but was hurt by Mitchell Trubisky's inaccuracy that hindered run after the catch abilities. Robinson also had a good adjustment on a deep ball and had a target near the goal line where he drew a defensive pass interference. He also added a drop on the interior, but overall his game after the recent struggles of Mitchell Trubisky. He will get a matchup next week against the Rams where he figures to draw coverage from Jalen Ramsey.
2019 Week 9 vs PHI (5 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson had his worst game of the season against the Eagles on Sunday. Robinson's bad day was a result of poor play by Mitchell Trubisky, who missed Robinson on an easy throw and was hesitant in the pocket throughout the day. Robinson's lone catch was a curl route at the end of the second quarter. He did have two deep targets, one he could not secure in bounds along the sideline, and a second that was a deep 50/50 ball that went through his hands. Robinson would benefit from Chase Daniel replacing Trubisky next week against the Lions.
2019 Week 8 vs LAC (7 / 5 / 62 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson had a lower volume game after a dominant performance last week. Coach Matt Nagy expressed disappointment with last week's pass-heavy approach and Robinson's target volume was one of the places where the rushing attempts came from. Robinson's passing volume came largely in the short range of the field and he was strong at the catch point, particularly on his lone deep reception. Robinson also drew two defensive pass interference penalties, including one in the end zone. Robinson was also targeted another time near the goal line, but Mitchell Trubisky threw the ball behind him. Robinson will have a favorable matchup next week against the Eagles.
2019 Week 7 vs NO (16 / 10 / 87 / 1 rec)
Allen Robinson was the only positive in the Chicago offense on Sunday. He was dominant and peppered with targets throughout the offense. Robinson was dominant in the short area of the field but struggled to create big plays because Mitchell Trubisky struggled mightily throughout the game. He had the opportunity for a big play down the sideline but was unable to get both feet down in bounds. Robinson boosted his fantasy day in garbage time with a terrific double move for a touchdown. Robinson is limited in his big-play ability by Trubisky's deficiencies but is a focal point of the offense and dominant player when he gets on point targets. He will face the Chargers next week.
2019 Week 5 vs OAK (8 / 7 / 97 / 2 rec)
Allen Robinson had a monster game against the Raiders in England. He dominated throughout the game, including a touchdown on a whip route and another on a high point fade. Robinson also made a highlight diving catch along the sideline. He is the engine to the passing offense for an offense that has few options to keep defenses honest. Robinson was used all over the field and made a number of critical catches for the offense. He also drew a defensive pass interference in the end zone that set up a David Montgomery touchdown. He will be off in week six and face a tough test against the Saints in week seven.
2019 Week 4 vs MIN (7 / 7 / 77 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson had a strong game against the Minnesota Vikings. Robinson had a good rapport with Chase Daniel who replaced Mitchell Trubisky after his shoulder injury in the first quarter. He had multiple tough catches, including a slant and two diving catches. He was a featured element of the passing offense and made critical plays for the offense. He could have had a bigger day, with a big play on the perimeter, but the play was called back by his own offensive pass interference. Robinson arguably has a better fantasy prospect with Chase Daniel at quarterback so Trubisky's injury status will be important to monitor during the week.
2019 Week 3 vs WAS (7 / 6 / 60 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson rebounded to have a solid fantasy night after a struggle in week two. The Bears ran a highly schemed offense against Washington and Robinson was used in targets designed to move the chains in the middle of the field than he was in prior weeks. He helped Trubisky out by making a diving catch and drew a defensive pass interference in the end zone that set up a Taylor Gabriel touchdown. Robinson will face the Vikings next week in a tough matchup.
2019 Week 2 vs DEN (7 / 4 / 41 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson had a disappointing game against the Denver Broncos after a strong week one. Robinsons was limited to short area catches and one well-defended back shoulder fade target early in the game before making a strong catch across the middle to set the Bears up in field goal position. Robinson is capped by the limited Mitchell Trubisky, so his fantasy prospects will be tough to project week to week. He faces Washington next week.
2019 Week 1 vs GB (13 / 7 / 102 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson was the best offensive player for the Chicago Bears in a disappointing offensive performance against the Green Bay Packers in week one. Robinson made two strong catches along the sideline in tight coverage and could have had another but was pulled out of bounds on an errant Mitchell Trubisky throw. Robinson was also targeted in the end zone but given no chance by Trubisky who stared Robinson down the entire route and lobbed an easy interception on what could have been a touchdown throw. Robinson will face a strong Denver defense in week two.
