Allen Robinson up for Vizio’s Top Value Performer Award, deserves more awards


Allen Robinson had a monster sophomore campaign for the Jacksonville Jaguars and is getting wide acclaim for it, including a nomination for Vizio’s Top Value Performer Award.

There’s nothing quite like being credited for your accomplishments, and Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robison deserved a healthy amount of praise for the type of sophomore season he put together.

A truly breakout year, Robinson won the race against fellow wideout Allen Hurns to be the first Jags receiver with 1000 yards receiving in a single season since Jimmy Smith’s 2005 campaign (Hurns also finished with over 1000 yards).

Robinson finished the season with 1400 yards and 14 touchdowns off 80 receptions. Compared to his rookie campaign of 548 yards and two touchdowns, Robinson truly exploded in his second season.

The Jags, who drafted Robinson in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, got excellent value from the wide receiver. Vizio’s nomination for Top Value Performer – those players whose value most exceeded their contract – is well earned and the awards shouldn’t stop there. He was one of the best receivers in the NFL in 2015 and was playing on a team that did not perform well in many respects, not least of which was the 5-11 record they posted.

While Robinson being snubbed for the Pro Bowl, there are plenty of other awards the Robinson should be nominated for and win. Fan voting is often a part of these possible awards, so turning out to vote should, of course, be encouraged across the board.

Hopefully we’ll see Robinson walk away with a few more awards this offseason, and starting with a value award is certainly a good place to jump off.
