Allen Robinson, wide receiver, Jacksonville Jaguars
Allen Robinson’s big 155-yard day with two touchdowns should not be overlooked.
The Jacksonville Jaguars came out with the willingness to just chuck it in Robinson’s direction and see if he came down with it and it payed off big. Robinson rewarded Blake Bortles and the Jaguars with six catches including three impressive long catches, with a beautiful 46-yard touchdown grab an impressive 52-yarder as well.
Four catches for over 25 yards will draw attention to any receiver.
While I would like to see Allen Robinson continue a strong day for the duration of the game, I understand why he faded for much of the second half. The Miami Dolphins made it a point to limit what Robinson could do against them and Blake Bortles was still honing in on Robinson instead of looking elsewhere.
Robinson isn’t the only playmaker for the Jaguars, but on Sunday he proved that the could be the primary playmaker for the team.
I expect that what we saw against the Dolphins will be a strong indicator of what we can see Robinson do when tight end Julius Thomas returns to the team from injury.
Allen Robinson should be praised for the ability to be so dangerous even when much of the rest of the offense was struggling to look even slightly intimidating.
