Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 18 vs PHI (13 / 10 / 143 / 1 rec - 33.3 points, $0)
The game plan was simple for the Bears this week and that was to throw the ball to Allen Robinson often. The Bears set up the Eagles defense for the big plays as in the first three quarters, the Bears primarily ran underneath routes of less than 10 yards in depth for Robinson as he ran screens, slants and hitch routes. In the fourth quarter, Robinson was able to connect on two double moves that were critical in the Bears passing offense. The first was a 45-yard double move in which Robinson faked the in route and then turned the route upfield for a wide-open reception. The second move was on a wheel route for a 22-yard touchdown in which once the defender tried to jump the route to the flat, he had no chance as Robinson simply out-ran him for a touchdown.
2018 Week 16 vs SF (8 / 6 / 85 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush - 14.4 points, $5400)
Allen Robinson was a bright spot in this game as he made what likely was the highlight moment for the Bears. On a play in which Robinson simply outran safety Marcell Harris, Robinson should have had a 60-yard touchdown, but the ball was overthrown and Robinson adjusted to it and made a spectacular diving catch. What was interesting for Robinson is that Robinson was largely playing out of position in this game as he's typically a wide receiver who lines up on the right side of the field, but six of his eight targets were on the left side of the field in this game as the team tried to match him up away from Richard Sherman.
2018 Week 15 vs GB (7 / 3 / 54 / 0 rec - 8.4 points, $5500)
Allen Robinson's size gave the Packers issues in this game as he was matched up against Jaire Alexander for most of the game. While the Bears were unable to connect with Robinson on any deep throws, Robinson made the most of it as he was able to turn a 5-yard hitch route into a 30-yard gain as Alexander was unable to tackle the much larger Robinson. Robinson only had one target longer than 10 yards in this game which ended up incomplete along the sideline, and this could be a sign of things to come as the Bears just do not have confidence in throwing the ball deep and are going with a horizontal passing attack instead of a vertical one.
2018 Week 14 vs LAR (8 / 5 / 42 / 0 rec - 9.2 points, $5600)
Robinson like most of the receivers in this game was primarily targeted on under routes as two of his five receptions were behind the line of scrimmage and all of his receptions were less than ten yards downfield. He was targeted three times on deep throws but was unable to connect with Trubisky in this game. This was a bit of a change in role for Robinson as he has not been a receiver in which they have previously used him primarily as a deep threat.
2018 Week 13 vs NYG (9 / 5 / 79 / 0 rec - 12.9 points, $5700)
Robinson had to work hard for his 79 yards this week as B.W. Webb had Robinson contained for a large majority of this game. Robinson's key catch in this game was a 30-yard reception on a deep fade route in which the ball was thrown on the inside of B.W. Webb so Robinson had to go up and catch the ball on Webb's helmet. Robinson was the first read almost every play for the Bears this week as he is most weeks, but the Giants did a good job containing him, for the most part, this week.
2018 Week 12 vs DET (4 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec - 5.7 points, $0)
Allen Robinson was in for a bit of a challenge in this game as he was frequently covered by Darius Slay and is asked to run deeper routes than Chase Daniel was comfortable throwing. Robinson did make an incredible play on a fly route in which he ran past Darius Slay and Chase Daniel threw a tremendous pass that only Robinson could catch the ball. Robinson also made a tremendous catch on a hitch route in which the ball was dangerously thrown inside and Robinson broke up what could have been an interception by making a diving play to cutoff Darius Slay who was closing quickly.
2018 Week 11 vs MIN (7 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec - 6.9 points, $5700)
After last week's big performance, Robinson was largely a non-factor this week against the Vikings. Robinson drew coverage of Xavier Rhodes for most of the game which was a tough matchup for the Bears. Robinson was able to get very little separation and while they did take shots to the receiver, most of the time the throws were tight coverage 50/50 balls.
2018 Week 10 vs DET (8 / 6 / 133 / 2 rec - 34.3 points, $5000)
Robinson came back in a big way for the Bears looking 100% healthy. Robinson gave the Lions trouble for most of the game including two touchdowns although he should have had a third on a quick slant in which he took for 36 yards weaving through the defense in the first quarter only to dive out of bounds. Robinson's first touchdown was a 36-yard back shoulder throw which was under-thrown that caused Robinson to come back to the ball and contort his body for a beautiful touchdown catch. His second touchdown was a 26-yard touchdown reception in which he simply stutter-stepped off the line in press coverage which caused the defender to miss the press on the line which allowed Robinson to gain inside possession on a fly route and use his speed to slice through the defense for a touchdown.
2018 Week 7 vs NE (5 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec - 1.4 points, $6100)
Allen Robinson was primarily just a decoy for the Bears this week as he was far less than 100% after dealing with a groin injury for most of the week and missing practice for the entire week. Robinson played the fewest snaps he has all season as he was on the field for just 73% of the team's snaps and did not look 100% healthy.
2018 Week 6 vs MIA (6 / 5 / 64 / 1 rec - 17.4 points, $5700)
Allen Robinson made the most out of a tough matchup this week against Xavien Howard and was largely taken out of the game for a lot of this as the Bears looked elsewhere. Robinson had just six targets in this game which is the second game in a row in which he was not heavily targeted. Robinson did find the endzone for the second game in a row however on a play in which he found a soft spot in zone coverage as the corner went over the top and the linebacker could not get underneath in time for an easy touchdown. Robinson made a tremendous catch early in the fourth quarter on a 21-yard pass thrown on the sideline in which he turned right and spun all the way around to adjust to the ball which was thrown to his left.
2018 Week 4 vs TB (4 / 2 / 23 / 1 rec - 10.3 points, $5900)
With everyone else in the receiving core having a good game, Robinson had to get in on the action as well. He caught 2 of his 4 targets and did not have anywhere near the same yards as other receivers, but he did walk away with a touchdown. Trubisky threw a fade to Robinson in the corner of the end zone. Robinson made a hard in cut and created just enough separation from his man to catch the ball thrown perfectly out in front of him for 13 yards. This was the second touchdown of the game for the Bears and from there his services were not really needed. Robinson is still the top receiving option for the Bears, but with the success for Cohen and Gabriel this week he was not really needed.
2018 Week 3 vs ARI (7 / 3 / 50 / 0 rec - 8 points, $5400)
The big off-season addition to the Bears secondary cannot seem to get anything going yet. He is dealing with a very inconsistent second year quarterback and has had to learn an entirely new system. Robinson was targeted 7 times but only pulled in 3 of those targets. He did have the longest play of game for the Bears with a 39-yard reception down the right sideline. Trubisky put the ball just over the outside shoulder of Robinson and setup Chicago's lone touchdown of the game. Robinson is by far the top receiving option for the Bears, but he is going to need better quarterback play to reach that potential. A matchup against a resurgent Tampa Bay team next week could be a high scoring affair and may lead to more opportunity for Robinson.
2018 Week 2 vs SEA (14 / 10 / 83 / 0 rec - 18.3 points, $0)
Allen Robinson appears to be fully recovered from the ACL injury he suffered in 2017, as the receiver has made a much-needed improvement to the Bears wide receiving group. The Seahawks often left Robinson in one on one coverage due to the amount of speed that is on the field with Tarik Cohen and Taylor Gabriel. Robinson played the role as a possession receiver in this game as his longest reception was 14 yards often using his size against the inexperienced Seahawks secondary to get in position to make a catch. Robinson did beat Shaquill Griffin on a fly-route, however, Trubisky underthrew the ball that ended up being intercepted in what would have been a significant addition to Robinson's stat line.
2018 Week 1 vs GB (7 / 4 / 61 / 0 rec - 10.1 points, $6300)
Allen Robinson was a big part of this offense adding a vertical threat to this offense that they desperately needed. Six of Robinsons' seven targets were ten or more yards downfield. Robinson played a significant role in the Bears early success on a beautiful catch on a contested throw 33 yards down the field with Jaire Alexander all over him. Robinson was able to use his size advantage to reach up and grab the ball over the smaller Alexander for a big gain.
