Allen Robinson has been a consistent force at wide receiver for the Chicago Bears over the last two years. He's racked up back-to-back thousand-yard seasons despite unstable play at quarterback, and his numbers should improve given the Bears' options under center in 2021.

Robinson's fantasy football outlook includes top-10 WR upside once again this year.

Playing with both Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles as his starter last season, Robinson still ranked as WR9 in PPR scoring. It was his second year in a row in the top 10 among wideouts after being WR8 in 2019. However, Robinson is going slightly under the radar this year with an average draft position (ADP) of WR11, according to FantasyPros.

The theme of Robinson's production over the last two years has been a volume of targets. He saw a career-high 154 targets in 2019, followed up by 151 targets in 2020. Robinson has impressively recorded 150-plus targets in four of his six healthy NFL seasons.

The 6-foot-2 is clearly a QB's dream target. The 2020 campaign featured his career bests in receptions (102) and catch rate percentage (67.5%) in spite of lackluster quarterback play.

Robinson will be his team's No. 1 wideout once again in 2021, and he'll get the more dependable Andy Dalton as his Week 1 starter. Dalton is by no means a big game-changer, but he provides the offense with a better floor than Trubisky or Foles.

There is also a chance that rookie Justin Fields unseats Dalton at starter at some point. However, it's easy to see the rookie depending on his playmaking top wideout, which sets Robinson up to feast regardless of a QB shakeup. And Fields' cannon of an arm may open even more big-play opportunities for Chicago's top wideout.

Robinson provides fantasy managers with a promising floor given his huge role in the Bears' offense. He has a penchant for making an impact no matter his QB, which gives him intriguing potential with Dalton and possibly Fields as his signal-caller in 2021.

Robinson checks it at WR9 in The Duel's 2021 fantasy football rankings.
