Allen Robinson
.
There aren’t many wide receivers that had a more disappointing season than Jacksonville’s Allen Robinson. A top-five fantasy wide receiver selection last year, he mustered just 73 catches for 883 yards and six touchdowns. A far cry from the 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns he produced in 2015.
.
So what does it mean for Robinson? For starters, you’ll likely end up getting a WR1 at a discount. Will he hit those lofty 2015 numbers? Probably not, but I can see him landing somewhere in the middle of the two seasons. That would put him on a 1,141 yard and 10 touchdown season. I actually think the yardage will be north of the 1,200 mark.
.
Robinson failed to reach 35 yards in six games last year and 60 yards in another four. Certainly not the mark a WR1 should make. He only topped 85 yards twice.
.
2015 was a different story. Robinson topped 100 yards in six games with 80 or more in another three. He did fail to reach 60 yards five times, which is still a high number for a high-end receiver.
.
So why will Robinson be better? For starters, his regression was so dramatic that going up isn’t a very tall order. Plus, the arrival of Leonard Fournette show make Jacksonville’s whole offense run better. Assuming defenses have to change their approach to slow Fournette down, it will open things up for the passing game.
.
I currently have Robinson outside of my top 12 WRs, but still have him as a high-end WR2. I imagine it will still be a little of the feast or famine with Robinson, but he should be a more reliable and productive option this coming year.

Blake Bortles

When looking to add players to bolster your roster or even decide which of your players to start, going with the best teams is not always the best option for fantasy performances.
.
Some of the best sports betting sites will give you the odds of each game. When betting you can look at the spread and over/under to help gauge which game will lend itself to having a quarterback playing from behind, which could lead to a lot of pass attempts, yards and touchdowns.
.
Case in point is Jacksonville Jaguar quarterback Blake Bortles’ performance on Thursday Night Football. The Jags dropped to 2-5 after getting dominated by the Tennessee Titans. It was 36-8 before a couple of late garbage touchdowns padded Bortles’ and his wide receivers stats.
337
It wasn’t a pretty performance, but if you look at the box score he finished with 337 yards and three touchdowns. He added 22 yards on the ground.
.
Not only did Bortles benefit from the late game surge, Allen Robinson turned another clunker into a respectable six catch, 70 yard performance. Allen Hurns garbage touchdown helped him turn in a seven catch, 98 yard, TD performance.
.
Fantasy fortunes were changed as the Jags kept pouring meaningless stats to close out the game.
.
Bortles performance was so bad that he is flying in Adam Dedeaux to help with his mechanics.
.
So it’s a difficult fantasy football landscape to navigate, but don’t get discouraged because your team is off to a rough start. There is always garbage time to get you back in the game.
