Allen Robinson exploded in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins. He racked up 155 yards and two touchdowns on just six catches.
With 182 yards so far this season, Robinson is leading the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has less catches than both rookie Rashad Greene and fellow second-year receiver Allen Hurns, but has proven he can be a big-play threat.
While last week was impressive for Allen Robinson, it was slightly concerning that the Dolphins were able to shut him out of the second half so easily. Almost all of the big plays that Robinson put together occurred in the first half and while they helped the Jaguars to victory, it would have been better if he and Blake Bortles had found a way to connect.
That isn’t to say that he wasn’t targeted. Robinson had 11 targets on the day from Bortles, it was just that something wasn’t clicking between the two quite like it was in the first half.
That concern, coupled with his poor Week 1 outing that saw him drop a couple of passes and only catch one of six balls doesn’t have me buying into Allen Robinson’s hype as quickly as I was during the offseason.
I think we’ll see another productive week from Allen Robinson and hope that his drop problems are behind him. I also hope that we see a more complete game from him, including being a threat throughout the full 60 minutes of regulation.
