Allen Robinson is having one of the best seasons of his career, and this week he has one of the best fantasy matchups a wide receiver can have. That makes the Chicago Bears stud a must-start across the fantasy landscape in a Week 9 meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles.

On the season, Robinson has 46 catches for 526 yards and three touchdowns. He has been especially hot over the last three weeks, catching 22 passes for 246 yards and all three of his touchdowns in that stretch.

Across the field, Philadelphia has one of the worst defenses against the pass in the NFL. Opponents have thrown for 251 yards per game against the Eagles, putting them 21st against the pass in the NFL. The numbers are even worse when you look at passing touchdowns, as Philly allows two per game, ranking 25th in the league. This has them allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts.

Making all of that more relevant is the fact that the Eagles boast the second best run defense in the league. That could force Chicago to throw more than they usually do, and with Philadelphia playing so poorly against the pass, Robinson figures to see a ton of action today.

You may not automatically think of the Bears passing attack as a fantasy goldmine, but in this matchup and with the way Robinson has been playing, he is as close to a lock as a player can get. He sits at WR8 in our Week 9 PPR fantasy football rankings.
