Allen Robinson is clearly still a top fantasy football wide receiver despite the Chicago Bears QB change, with Chase Daniel replacing an injured Mitchell Trubisky. He was kept quiet in the first half of the Bears' Week 5 game against the Oakland Raiders in London, but has now exploded for a pair of touchdowns in the third quarter.

The Bears got off to a terrible start to the game, and were down 17-0 at halftime. However, Chicago exploded for a 21-point third quarter, aided by a pair of TD receptions for Robinson. The wideout totaled three receptions for 39 yards and two TDs by the end of the quarter.

Allen Robinson Stats

In the game, Robinson ended up with seven receptions (on seven targets) for 97 yards and those two third-quarter touchdowns. Coming into this week, a lack of touchdowns was really been the only thing holding back Robinson's fantasy value. He's had at least seven targets in all five games now, with at least six receptions and 60 yards in four of the five. Robinson had zero touchdowns through Week 4, but was still averaging 13.0 fantasy points per game during that span.

Daniel might not be much of a downgrade from Trubisky, and Robinson is still the top pass-catcher in Chicago, making the wideout an every-week fantasy starter with WR1 upside moving forward.
