Robinson is willing to sign an extension, noting that he still hopes to play the rest of his career with the Bears, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
Entering the third season of a three-year, $42 million contract, Robinson is scheduled for a $15 million cap hit in 2020, per overthecap.com. His next deal presumably will be larger in terms of average annual value, but that doesn't necessarily mean the 2020 cap charge will increase if he signs an extension. The 26-year-old wide receiver enjoyed a rebound campaign in 2019, producing career highs for targets (154) and receptions (98) as well as his best marks since 2015 for receiving yardage (1,147) and touchdowns (seven). The sketchy quarterback situation in Chicago could be a relevant factor that dissuades Robinson from taking a team-friendly deal.
Robinson caught nine passes for 71 yards in the Bears' 21-19 win over the Vikings in Week 17, and he ended the season with 98 receptions for 1,047 yards and seven touchdowns.
In his second season following knee surgery, Robinson re-emerged as a fantasy force by posting his first 1,000-yard season since 2015 while posting his second-highest touchdown total of his six-year career. His season was even more impressive because he was often hindered by erratic quarterback play, but his elite ability at the catch point allowed him to consistently make plays even when he was tightly guarded and the football wasn't always on target. It'll be difficult to view him as anything other than a top-12 option at wide receiver in 2020 fantasy drafts.
Robinson caught six passes for 53 yards in the Bears' 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Robinson was the only Bears receiver to post more than 26 yards, and he led the team with 12 targets in a game in which they struggled to move the ball consistently. He did have a chance to score on a fourth-down play in the red zone when he was targeted in the end zone, but the pass was underthrown. He'll look to end the season on a high note in a Week 17 matchup against the Vikings as he looks to add to his 89 receptions and 1,078 yards.
Robinson caught seven passes for 125 yards in the Bears' 21-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Robinson had just nine yards at halftime, but with Chicago falling behind by double digits early in the second half, he ended up with 14 targets, and the Packers were unable to slow him down as he posted at least 86 yards for the fourth time over his last six games. Although he'll face a Kansas City defense in Week 16 that has done well to limit opposing wide receivers this season, he'll continue to be a strong fantasy option to close out the season.
Robinson secured five of eight targets for 48 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.
Robinson extended his touchdown streak to three games with scoring grabs of five and eight yards in the second quarter. The veteran had totaled at least 86 yards in three of his four games prior to Thursday, so his yardage tally against the Cowboys represented a downturn. Nevertheless, Robinson appears to have a locked-in target share, making him a valued fantasy asset alongside an improving Mitchell Trubisky in a Week 15 showdown against the Packers a week from Sunday.
Robinson brought in eight of 12 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 24-20 win over the Lions on Thursday.
Robinson opened the scoring on the day for the Bears with a 10-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter, and he was Mitchell Trubisky's second-favorite target overall behind Anthony Miller. Robinson was the runner-up in receptions, receiving yardage and targets to his second-year teammate, but the veteran still put together a highly productive follow-up to his season-best 131-yard effort in Week 12 against the Giants. Robinson will look to extend his scoring streak to three games when the Bears face off with the Cowboys in a Week 14 Thursday night battle.
Robinson caught six of 10 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 19-14 victory over the Giants on Sunday.
Along with the entire Bears offense, Robinson was very quiet during the first half but took over the game in the final 30 minutes as the New York secondary didn't have an answer for him in coverage. In addition to his huge numbers, he had a reception of over 60 yards called back by penalty. Although he's had a pair of disappointing performances over the last four weeks, he's been held to fewer than 60 yards just twice since Week 2, and he'll continue to be a WR2 based on both his talent and target volume.
Robinson caught four passes (six targets) for 15 yards in Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Rams.
Robinson spent most of his night matched up against shutdown corner, Jalen Ramsey, and the defensive back got the better of the matchup. The Bears' top wideout has now posted two rough outings of 15 yards and six yards over his last three contests, but a lot of the blame can be placed on inconsistent quarterback play from struggling third-year pro Mitch Trubisky. Robinson won't have to deal with a corner anywhere near as talented as Ramsey when Chicago takes on the Giants (24th ranked pass defense) on Sunday, and he should remain startable in most formats with 8.6 targets per game this season.
Robinson caught six passes for 86 yards in the Bears' 20-13 win over the Lions on Sunday.
Robinson was targeted on nine of Mitchell Trubisky's 23 passes, and though many of them were off target, he continued to use his amazing athleticism to make difficult contested catches. Robinson could've had a bigger day, but a fantastic defensive play by a defender knocked the ball free on what would have been a reception of over 20 yards, and he also drew a long pass interference penalty. Over his last seven games, he's failed to reach 60 yards on just one occasion and continues to be a steady source of fantasy production.
Robinson caught one pass for six yards in the Bears' 22-14 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
Despite facing one of the weaker pass defenses in the league, Mitchell Trubisky threw for just 125 yards, which certainly limited any upside for Robinson. He had an opportunity for potential long touchdown after he ran past the cornererback, but Trubisky underthrew the pass, resulting in an incompletion. This was the first time he posted fewer than 60 yards since Week 2, and he still should be considered a solid weekly lineup option.
Robinson caught five passes for 62 yards in Chicago's 17-16 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.
Robinson could've had a pair of touchdowns, but the first didn't work out because the pass was thrown behind him, and on the second opportunity, he was dragged down by a defender for defensive pass interference in the end zone. Although he spent most of the day shadowed by Casey Hayward, he caught five of seven targets while posting at least 60 yards for the sixth time in seventh games, making him a rock-solid weekly lineup option.
Robinson caught 10 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 36-25 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
Robinson was the only Bears player to be effective throughout the entire contest. During the first half, the team struggled to move the football with the exception of Robinson, who was able to consistently beat tight coverage. He then padded his yardage totals while scoring a touchdown late in the contest when the game was out of hand. He's posted at least 77 yards in each of his last three games while scoring three times during that span, and he's settled in as a rock-solid weekly fantasy starter.
Robinson caught seven passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.
The Bears came out completely flat in this contest and trailed 17-0 at the half, but that set the stage for Robinson to go off in the second half. In addition to making a ridiculous contested catch in double coverage for 32 yards, he led the team with eight targets and scored Chicago's only receiving touchdowns. He's been targeted at least seven times in each game this season while falling below 60 yards just once, and after his Week 6 bye, he'll continue to be a strong weekly fantasy starter.
Robinson caught seven passes for 77 yards in Chicago's 16-6 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.
Robinson was dominating the Minnesota secondary throughout the first half, as he was the main option in Chicago's passing attack. However, once the Bears took firm control of this game early in the second half, they took the air out of the football, and the focus on the running game made Robinson a nonfactor the rest of the way. He's been targeted at least seven times in each game this season, and he's established a solid weekly scoring floor, and it's likely just a matter of time until he has a matchup that allows him to show the upside that fantasy owners had hoped for when drafting him.
Robinson caught six of seven targets for 60 yards in Monday night's 31-15 win over the Redskins.
Robinson did a decent job helping Chicago move the ball, tying Taylor Gabriel for the team's lead in receptions and targets. Although Gabriel would score three touchdowns from his share of looks, Robinson was comfortably the Bears' No. 2 pass-catcher on the night in terms of production. Following 102 yards in Week 1, however, Robinson has managed a total of 101 in two games since, and he has yet to find the end zone this season. He'll also face a tough Vikings defense in Week 4, but his consistent involvement as his team's top wideout at least offers a relatively sturdy floor.
Robinson caught four passes for 41 yards yards in Chicago's Week 2 victory over the Broncos.
After a fantastic Week 1 performance, the Chicago coaching staff took the ball out of Mitch Trubisky's hands and let the running game take over, which impacted Robinson's fantasy day, though he did lead the team with seven targets. Another problem he faced was that Denver placed their top quarterback, Chris Harris, on him for most of the afternoon, which certainly didn't give his quarterback an easy target to throw to. The Bears will need to throw more in most of their upcoming games, so Robinson should settle in as a steady fantasy option.
Robinson brought in seven of 13 targets for 102 yards in the Bears' 10-3 loss to the Packers on Thursday.
Robinson's receiving yardage and targets were both game-high figures, with the talented wideout garnering the majority of his numbers in the second half. The 26-year-old made three catches over a two-drive stretch in the fourth quarter and was also the intended receiver on Mitchell Trubisky's end-zone interception with 1:58 remaining. Robinson's usage was highly encouraging, and the fact he was able to eclipse the 100-yard mark for only the second time as a Bear was certainly a bonus for fantasy managers. Robinson will look to capitalize on what should be at least a slightly more cohesive passing attack in a Week 2 battle against the Broncos a week from Sunday.
Robinson won't suit up for Thursday's preseason game versus the Panthers.
Despite staying health all offseason, Robinson will be held out by coach Matt Nagy in the exhibition opener. Robinson will be joined by Taylor Gabriel and Cordarrelle Patterson on the sidelines, leaving the likes of Anthony Miller, Javon Wims, Riley Ridley and Marvin Hall to man wide receiver.
Robinson was healthy throughout the offseason program, JJ Stankevitz of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Robinson's first offseason in Chicago was devoted to rehabbing from the ACL tear he suffered in Week 1 of 2017. As is often the case in a player's first year back from major surgery, he struggled with both health and consistency in 2018, missing three games with injuries (groin, rib) and falling shy of 50 yards in five others. He finally looked like the best version of himself by the end of the campaign, posting a 6-85-1 receiving line in his last regular-season game and a 10-143-1 line in a playoff loss to Philadelphia. Now benefiting from a normal offseason and a second year in the same scheme, Robinson is well positioned to take a step forward in his age-26 campaign, though he's unlikely to return to his peak volume from 2015-16 in Jacksonville (153 and 151 targets). The Bears have a solid group of secondary pass-catching options, and their excellent defense should lead to some weeks where they don't need much volume from Mitchell Trubisky.
Robinson caught 10 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 16-15 playoff loss to the Eagles.
Robinson caught mostly short passes in the first half before the Chicago coaching staff realized they had a significant mismatch by using its star receiver as a downfield weapon against an overmatched secondary. His 143 yards represented his biggest yardage total of the season and only the second time he exceeded 85 yards in his first year with the Bears. After finishing the season with 55 receptions for 754 yards and four touchdowns, he'll enter the second year of his three-year deal, and he should be the primary receiving option who could see a major uptick in production in 2019.
