The Kansas City Chiefs' receiving corps will look slightly different in 2021. Sammy Watkins departed for the Baltimore Ravens in free agency, leaving a hole at WR2 behind Tyreek Hill. Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson and possibly a top draft pick will all be competing for a sizable role within the offense.
Robinson believes he's ready to step up for the team, setting a huge goal for himself heading into next season.
Robinson wants his production to be on par with some of the best in the league. A 1,000-yard, 10-TD season would blow his prior seasons out of the water, yet he's confident he can reach those numbers if given the chance.
The five-year veteran has played a supporting part within the Chiefs' offense so far. His numbers have been fairly consistent from 2019 (55 targets, 32 receptions, 449 yards, 4 TDs) to 2020 (59 targets, 45 receptions, 466 yards, 4 TDs), and it's encouraging that he's not satisfied with that production. Improving his catch rate to a career-high 76.3% last season is a great sign heading into next year.
The opportunity for Robinson to prove himself is there for the taking after Watkins' departure and the Chiefs opting to address WR in the draft. The competition between Robinson, Hardman and a likely draft pick should elevate this group as they hope to get back to the Super Bowl.
