WR Allen Robinson - Chicago Bears
|6-2, 220||Born: 8-24-1993||College: Penn State||Drafted: Round 2, pick 2014|
2018 Week 1 vs GB (7 / 4 / 61 / 0 rec)
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.
2018 Week 2 vs SEA (14 / 10 / 83 / 0 rec)
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 3 vs ARI (7 / 3 / 50 / 0 rec)
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 4 vs TB (4 / 2 / 23 / 1 rec)
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 6 vs MIA (6 / 5 / 64 / 1 rec)
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 7 vs NE (5 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
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 10 vs DET (8 / 6 / 133 / 2 rec)
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 11 vs MIN (7 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec)
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 12 vs DET (4 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
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 13 vs NYG (9 / 5 / 79 / 0 rec)
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 14 vs LAR (8 / 5 / 42 / 0 rec)
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 15 vs GB (7 / 3 / 54 / 0 rec)
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 16 vs SF (8 / 6 / 85 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
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 18 vs PHI (13 / 10 / 143 / 1 rec)
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.
2017 Week 1 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
Robinson was targeted on the first pass of the game for the Jaguars but was injured on the same play and never returned.
2016 Week 1 vs GB (15 / 6 / 72 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson had an up and down game. On one hand, he drew to constant ire of the Packers defensive backs. It seemed like on each of his first 5-to-6 targets of the game that the Packers committed some blatant form of pass interference out of desperation. None of these were called, for whatever reason, but Robinson was consistently beating the Packers DBs to force these plays. Robinson was also the target on several of the Jaguars 4th down attempts, showing that he is the player that they trust in go-to situations. On the downside, Robinson failed to connect with Bortles on 3 of their 4 deep attempts. One of these was a miscue between the two players, while the other two failures were failures by Robinson to secure the catch, albeit against tough coverage.
2016 Week 2 vs SD (5 / 3 / 54 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson was largely held in check by Jason Verrett. It is tough to say whether the Jaguars decided to just opt to not target Verrett or if Verrett shut Robinson out, but he was a non-factor either way. The only target he saw before garbage time was a slant where he had beaten Verrett but failed to adjust to a catchable ball. Robinson saw 15 targets in week 1 so it was strange to see him phased out like this.
2016 Week 3 vs BAL (11 / 7 / 57 / 2 rec)
Robinson finally found the endzone for the first time in 2016 after he had an incredibly detailed route to beet Shareece Wright in the red zone. He consistently made underneath grabs for the Jaguars after dropping one pass on the game's first possession. His second TD was on a fade in the red zone and he made a great in-air adjustment and secured the ball when landing. The team made it an emphasis to target him early and often, making it clear that he will be the focus of the passing game from this point on.
2016 Week 4 vs IND (10 / 5 / 55 / 1 rec)
His stat line won't reflect it, but Robinson was by far the best player on the field between the Jaguars offense and the Colts defense. He was again the focal point of the teams passing game and was consistently embarrassing Colts' defenders with his routes (see his TD.) He also drew over 3 pass interference calls, and frankly should have had 2 more called, because the Colts only defense for him was to grab him. He had one bad drop in the endzone that should have been a 2nd touchdown, but he had a great day. He just needs his QB to be more accurate on the deep shots and then his numbers will explode.
2016 Week 6 vs CHI (6 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec)
Robinson was absolutely dominating on the first drive of the game, showing incredible hands and catch radius. But when his numbed was called in the end zone, he had quite possibly the worst play of his career, letting a touchdown pass bounce off his chest and into the hands of a defender. He was then largely ignored for the rest of the game, though his quarterback did him no favors when he was targeted. Robinson has now dropped 3 touchdown passes on the season.
2016 Week 7 vs OAK (8 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
Robinson is not getting any help from his quarterback, but he is also playing the worst ball of his career. He is struggling to beat coverage now that teams are dictating complete game plans to him, and somehow his hands have become completely untrustworthy. He somehow has the most dropped passes on the team, including a horrendous drop on what should have been a first down. He looks nothing like the budding star of 2015.
2016 Week 8 vs TEN (15 / 6 / 70 / 0 rec)
Robinson continues to struggle immensely. He dropped several passes that were passes that he would have caught last season and he is struggling heavily vs physicality against defensive backs. He made one great adjustment to a pass at the end of the game but there is still much more bad than good with Robinson right now. He is struggling just as much as his quarterback is.
2016 Week 9 vs KC (11 / 7 / 76 / 1 rec)
Allen Robinson is even more frustrating than Bortles. He made several acrobatic grabs that made it look like he was returning back to form, including his toe touching touchdown at the end of the first half. But he also has continued his trend of having drive killing plays. Effort is officially an issue, as he jogged under a Blake Bortles deep pass and made zero attempt to even look like he wanted to catch it. He is also still struggling against physicality. He is not out of his slump.
2016 Week 10 vs HOU (13 / 9 / 107 / 1 rec)
Robinson finally had the slump-breaking type of game that we have been waiting for him to have. He cut out the drops and played much more physical than he has all season. For the first time this season, he looked like a wideout who can produce regardless of how his quarterback is playing.
2016 Week 11 vs DET (7 / 3 / 18 / 1 rec)
Robinson had a touchdown catch in his 3rd straight game. It looks like he is finally out of his individual slump, as the poor routes and ball security issues have largely disappeared over the last few games. He is still unable to make a difference as a vertical threat due to the poor play that he is getting from his quarterback, but he has done all he can lately to make the best of a bad situation. He is still clearly the top player in the passing game.
2016 Week 12 vs BUF (4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Robinson did not see many targets this game but he impressed when the ball went his way. Him and Bortles finally connected on their first deep pass of the year, with Robinson making a terrific adjustment on a back shoulder throw. Robinson made a similar amazing catch earlier in the game but failed to get the 2nd foot in. This game was a good example of Robinson being out of his own independent funk, despite Bortles still struggling.
2016 Week 13 vs DEN (10 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson is as in sync with Blake Bortles as he was last season, in the sense that he is having just as disappointing of a season as his quarterback is. He struggled to gain any separation vs the Broncos' trio of defensive backs and was dominated by their physicality whenever challenged. He also was directly responsible for an interception, as he bobbled a rare accurate Bortles pass and practically handed it to Chris Harris. Robinson is clearly in his own head in which is a lost season.
2016 Week 14 vs MIN (3 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
After the news broke that Allen Robinson and Bortles had a sit down to discuss their struggles getting on the same page, Robinson had a whopping one catch against the Vikings. Bortles rarely went his way, and when he did it was largely inaccurate passes. Robinson did struggle to get consistent separation against the physical Vikings DBs, which has been a huge issue for him all season.
2016 Week 15 vs HOU (8 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson has 3 catches for 32 yards in the last two games. The only thing he is currently doing well is drawing pass interference flags. He is broken beyond repair, for this season at the least. The talent is obviously still there but mentally he has shown week in and week out he can't put it together right now.
2016 Week 16 vs TEN (12 / 9 / 147 / 0 rec)
Robinson, like Bortles, had a bounce back game in what has been a nightmare season. He finally looked exactly like the 2015 version of himself. Tough YAC, Great adjustments, and playing with attitude; He did it all. Perhaps the biggest adjustment he made was mental, as he was able to be the go-to target on the Jaguars final offensive drive, making clutch catch after clutch catch, which is something that he struggled with all season long.
2016 Week 17 vs IND (12 / 5 / 82 / 0 rec)
Robinson started off the game with a terrific catch and run on the first drive and then was largely quiet outside of that. He beat triple coverage from the Colts early on to streak open downfield but Vontae Davis made an all-pro play to break it up. He did not have a bad game plagued by drops, effort issues, or inconsistency. Instead, he simply went against a great cornerback, which you can live with.
2015 Week 1 vs CAR (6 / 1 / 27 / 0 rec)
Robinson had a poor showing in week one, and Bortles seemed to lose confidence in him as the game went on. He set up a beautiful Comeback route on first target that was a blatant drop. His second target came on a corner route in the redzone - he got muscled at the Line of Scrimmage and took awhile to get into his route. The cornerback was right on top of him and the ball not really in play on the throw. His first catch came on an intermediate dig that was hit on an open window against zone coverage. He also had a target came on a fade from the one yard line at the end of the half. He beat the cornerback and had a step, but Bortles threw the ball right into the defender's back. There were some plays that he wasn't targeted on where he really struggled at playing through physicality at the line of scrimmage, which is probably the most concerning thing of this game.
2015 Week 2 vs MIA (12 / 6 / 155 / 2 rec)
The Dolphins played a lot of off coverage against Robinson, which plays right into his hands, as he showed last week that he still struggles with physicality at the line of scrimmage and through the route. Robinson outgained his week one output on his very first catch. He received his first target of the day on a deep corner-post. The ball was underthrown and slightly behind, but he climbed the ladder and made a great adjustment in the air to make a contested catch. Scored a touchdown later on the drive on a quick slant from inside the five. He was the only receiver on the field for the play. He scored again in the second quarter on a 40+ yard pass up the seam (post-corner from the slot) where he was wide open. Almost responsible for a near-interception where he rounded a Dig route off and allowed Brent Grimes to beat him to his spot. He also commited an OPI on a deep comeback to open the third quarter. He repeatedly displayed the fantastic body control and the ability to adjust to inaccurate balls in this game.
2015 Week 3 vs NE (9 / 4 / 68 / 0 rec)
Robinson received the first three targets of the game. The first came on an Out-and-Up where he beat the corner, but the single-high safety floated over and made a play on the ball (underthrown and slightly late). His second target came on a crosser from the slot where he faced true double coverage (nickel/safety bracket). His third target came on the second drive, a curl that was completed for 8 yards. Lined up in the slot and beat the nickel corner one-on-one on a fade route, but ball was underthrown. He was forced to come back to it and go up in the air for it, and the corner was able to recover and push him out of bounds before he got his feet in. He was targeted on the first two passes of the second half - first was a deep comeback off play-action. He got no separation, and the cornerback kept tight coverage and made a play on the ball. The second was a deep curl that was slightly off target, but was a horrible drop (the cornerback also slipped on the play). Both targets came with single coverage outside. His best play of the game came in garbage time in the 4th quarter, where he beat press coverage and went up for a beautiful contested catch along the sideline, hauling it in right as the safety arrived for a 37 yard gain. Two plays later, he made a reception on a deep curl, eluding the corner after the catch for a 20 yard gain.
2015 Week 4 vs IND (12 / 4 / 80 / 0 rec)
Robinson had a huge reception deep downfield on the second drive. He beat the corner by 10 yards, but the ball was overthrown and he made a fantastic diving catch and was ruled down at the six yardline. He received a redzone target on the next play, and the ball was not in play. This remained the theme for the rest of the afternoon as Bortles remained generally inaccurate and struggled to put the ball in play when targeting Robinson. He drew a DPI to keep a 4th quarter drive alive on a Bortles scramble.
2015 Week 5 vs TB (9 / 7 / 72 / 2 rec)
This was a productive game on the stat sheet for Robinson, but there were a lot of missed opportunities that could have resulted in him having a huge game. Bortles missed him twice with poor accuracy on streaks down the sideline - potential game changing plays. He also missed an open Robinson over the middle of the field on the interception. And finally, Bortles forced a redzone target to Lewis in the middle of the field, missing Robinson running free along the perimeter of the endzone wide open. Robinson converted his two redzone targets (one coming in garbage time), but made both of them playing through contact.
2015 Week 6 vs HOU (12 / 6 / 86 / 1 rec)
Robinson got heavy target volume, and received first target of the day (back shoulder fade). His very next target was a back-shoulder fade from the slot. His touchdown came on a fade in the redzone (finally connecting on it after many tries so far this season). Bortles' inaccuracy continues to hurt his numbers - two huge missed plays from straight up uncatchable balls. He exited the game in the 4th after a collision with a Texans defender and was seen on crutches after the game.
2015 Week 7 vs BUF (9 / 6 / 98 / 1 rec)
Even with the reduced passing game volume, Robinson still had a productive game and was targeted often - especially early in the game and in crunch time. On his first target, he drew DPI on a fade route vs Stephon Gilmore, and caught it contested (penalty declined). His touchdown came in the redzone, where he ran a slant vs Gilmore in man-to-man coverage (the defense came on an all-out blitz).
2015 Week 9 vs NYJ (11 / 6 / 121 / 0 rec)
Robinson continues to have an excellent year and had a very good statline while drawing Revis for the entire game. His two early targets early vs Revis resulted in a pass breakup and interception. Made his first big play on scramble rules, getting upfield while Bortles improvised. He also had a fantastic contested catch downfield later in the game with Revis draped all over him.
2015 Week 10 vs BAL (11 / 5 / 51 / 1 rec)
Had a very fun battle with Jimmy Smith for most of the game. His first target downfield he beat Smith on a go route. The ball was badly underthrown, but Robinson drew DPI trying to come back to it. He almost scored on a hitch on the next play, racking up about 12 yards YAC and going down at the three yard line. Bortles missed him on an open fade on the next play. Continued a good battle with Smith from there, with Smith playing him tight and contesting the next catch, and even forcing Robinson to play defender on a wild Bortles throw. His touchdown came in the 4th on a corner route in the redzone where he beat Ladarius Webb in man.
2015 Week 11 vs TEN (7 / 5 / 113 / 0 rec)
Robinson's first target didn't come until late in the second quarter - a streak where he had his man beat, but the ball was off target because of pressure. Got open on a trick play (reverse pass), but Brian Walters missed the throw badly. He finally started hitting big plays on the first drive of the second half, starting with a streak vs Cover 1 on the final drive of the first half. He continued the drive with a beautiful post down the middle of the field, where Bortles hit him just as he was coming out of his break, and finished the drive with a toe-tapping catch along the sidelines off a bootleg where he went out at the six-yard line.
2015 Week 12 vs SD (11 / 5 / 56 / 1 rec)
Other than the matchup with Josh Norman in week one and the Patriots in week four, Robinson has essentially been matchup proof and has the same game every week. The scary thing is that there's a few missed connections between him and Bortles every week, so the potential is there for a monster season going forward. He remains productive both down the field and in the redzone, and has improved to the point where he is excellent at making contested catches and fighting through contact.
2015 Week 13 vs TEN (15 / 10 / 153 / 3 rec)
Robinson is virtually uncoverable at this point, and has been arguably the most consistent receiver week-to-week in the NFL. All three of his touchdowns came in the redzone this week. The level of physicality in his game has really grown throughout the year. He's throwing cornerbacks off of him to pick up YAC, and is dominating on contested catches downfield.
2015 Week 14 vs IND (4 / 1 / 4 / 1 rec)
Robinson was shut out in the first half and through most of the third quarter, but made his first (and only) touch count, scoring on a filthy double move from the slot in the redzone for a four yard touchdown.
2015 Week 15 vs ATL (5 / 3 / 57 / 1 rec)
Robinson had a solid day, being able to make his share of big plays. He beat up on Marcus Trufant whenever given the chance, beating him deep down the sideline in the first half and still being able to haul in the pass despite interference from Trufant. On the very next play he had another big gain, being able to catch a tight window along the sideline. In the 3rd quarter, he beat Trufant for a TD in the redzone, using his body to win the leverage battle and then creating separation as the ball arrived. He did have 2 "drops" but he needed to make difficult adjustments to even have a chance to make the play.
2015 Week 16 vs NO (9 / 6 / 151 / 1 rec)
Robinson was quiet in the first half against Delvin Breaux and came to life in the second half against Brandown Browner. His first target came off a scramble drill and turned into an interception because of uncalled pass interference. His second target was a well placed Fade downfield that he couldn't come down with as Breaux played him well through the catch point. He dropped a well-placed Post on his next target too, with Breaux once again playing him physically at the catch point. He finally got going in the second half, hauling in a chunk play down the sideline against the honey hole of Cover 2. He scored on the longest play in franchise history on his next target - a 90 yard catch-and-run on a streak against Brandon Browner.
2015 Week 17 vs HOU (9 / 5 / 108 / 0 rec)
Robinson is probably the only Jaguars offensive player who played an even above average game. He showed good precision on routes and was able to haul in several difficult passes. It got to the point where Bortles was blatantly forcing him the ball, something that everyone watching and participating in the game noticed. He almost made a terrific catch along the left sideline but was hit low by the safety as he extended for the ball. His biggest impact was getting yards after the catch, becoming an outlet for Bortles on several scramble drills and turning them into big plays.
2014 Week 1 vs PHI (3 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Robinson was targeted a couple of times early in the game, but he couldn't create separation on underneath routes. When he caught his first pass, it was on a screen play where the defensive back tackled him as soon as he caught the ball.
2014 Week 2 vs WAS (6 / 4 / 75 / 0 rec)
After being used on too many screens and short routes in Week 1, the Jaguars finally gave Robinson some legitimate opportunities down the field in Week 2. His first target came at the start of the second quarter when he adjusted well to a pass thrown behind him on a seven-yard in route. He followed that up with a tough sideline reception for eight yards. Henne did try to find Robinson down the sideline later in the game, but he slightly overthrew the receiver who attempted to make a reception at full extension. One more curl route over the middle precluded Robinson's biggest play of the game. Although the game was essentially over in the fourth quarter, Robinson created separation behind the Washington safeties for a 50+ yard gain. He was forced to adjust to the ball which slowed him down to allow the safeties to recover and tackle him.
2014 Week 3 vs IND (10 / 7 / 79 / 0 rec)
Robinson started for the Jaguars and caught the offense's first pass of the game. It was a screen play where he fell forward to land just short of the first down marker on Third down. Robinson didn't see the ball again until the start of the third quarter, when he caught a curl pass from Blake Bortles and broke a tackle to create a good gain after the catch. Robinson finally caught a pass down the field in the fourth quarter, when he ran a good crossing route against zone coverage for a first down. He followed that up with a screen pass, but again, he looked uncomfortable with the ball in his hands. Robinson ran another short curl route late in the fourth quarter before making a comfortable contested catch for a short gain. Robinson appeared to be Bortles' preferred target, as he immediately found him again down the seam for a first down. Robinson was showing off an impressive catch radius in this game. He finished out the fourth quarter with a low catch on a curl route.
2014 Week 4 vs SD (7 / 5 / 38 / 0 rec)
Allen Robinson is becoming a fixture in the Jaguars passing attack. He opened this game by converting a long third down with a catch against tight coverage. Robinson is a big, strong receiver with good ball skills. He was showing that off early in this game as he followed up his first reception with a curl route when he was hit as soon as the ball arrived. Robinson is most impressive running routes down the field, but the Jaguars continue to force passes to him on screen passes. Robinson caught another one for a loss in the third quarter of this game. Late in the fourth quarter, Robinson reacted to a tipped pass that was aimed at another receiver to gain 12 yards.
2014 Week 5 vs PIT (11 / 5 / 51 / 0 rec)
With Cecil Shorts out, it was no surprise that Allen Robinson caught Bortles' first completion of the day. Robinson made a nice catch at the sideline on an eight yard out route. On First-and-20 soon after, Robinson caught a short out route against off coverage. Robinson moved into the slot for his next reception on a short out route, that came late in the second quarter. Bortles went straight back to him on the next play, but this time he was targeted downfield where he made a tough contested catch. The Jaguars have insisted on throwing short passes to Robinson, but he makes a much greater impact when they locate him down the field and trust his ability to win at the catch point. That is what was happening on their final drive of the second quarter, as Bortles found Robinson down the sideline for another contested catch.
2014 Week 6 vs TEN (9 / 8 / 68 / 0 rec)
The Jaguars still don't appear to be certain of what Robinson is good at. They have forced too many screens and underneath passes to him this season instead of letting him win at the catch point down the field. His first three receptions in this game were short plays, but two allowed him to run routes past the line of scrimmage. The other was a screen pass that went nowhere as he hesitated at the line without a clear running lane. In the fourth quarter, Robinson caught another screen pass for five yards.
