WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson is signing with the Raiders.

Robinson is heading from Kansas City to Las Vegas, and he could have a similar role as the likely No. 4 wideout behind Davante Adams, Hunter Renfrow, and Bryan Edwards. The best game of Robinson's career notably came against the Raiders a couple of years ago with 172 yards and two touchdowns on six receptions, and maybe he'll have a similar outburst with his new team at some point.

The Chiefs are re-signing Demarcus Robinson.

Robinson will now be entering his sixth season with the Chiefs, and he's played in all 16 games every year of his career. With Sammy Watkins potentially leaving in free agency, Robinson could have an intriguing boost in role in the Kansas City offense this season.

Demarcus Robinson has been cleared to practice today, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Robinson has tested negative every day since being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, so he will now be able to play in Super Bowl LV. He could have a slightly decreased role off the bench with limited practice time combined with the return of Sammy Watkins (calf).

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Center Daniel Kilgore has also been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but both are due to close contact issues, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. With Super Bowl LV less than a week away, we now have to hope this doesn’t develop into a big issue for the Chiefs.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

The Chiefs are re-signing Demarcus Robinson, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

The wide receiver market has been slow this season because of the insane depth in this year's draft class, so Robinson will re-join Kansas City. Robinson is a very good backup option in the Chiefs receiving corps, but he'd likely need an injury to contribute consistently to fantasy rosters in 2020.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson goes off in Chiefs' Week 2 win.

Robinson caught seven passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns in Kansas City's victory at Oakland. The fourth-year receiver got more playing time with Tyreek Hill (shoulder) out, and he took advantage by making multiple plays in contested coverage and getting free—the first score was on a 44-yard deep ball where he got wide open behind the defense, and the second was on a nice jump-ball, back-shoulder type of catch in the end zone for 39 yards. D-Rob is on the boom/bust FLEX radar as someone that has Patrick Mahomes' trust dating back to last season.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches one pass in AFC title game.

Robinson caught a 27-yard pass on a deep crossing route in the fourth quarter. It was a key reception late in the game to help the Chiefs force overtime, but the team ultimately fell in overtime against the Patriots. D-Rob is entering the final season of his rookie contract in 2019, and he'll likely play out the deal as a reserve receiver with experience in the offsense for the Chiefs.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson did not catch a pass in the Divisional Round.

Robinson is now Kansas City's fourth receiver with Sammy Watkins (foot) back in the lineup.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches 89-yard touchdown in win over the Raiders.

Robinson was able to get behind the defense on his only grab of the game. The Florida product finishes the regular season with a 22/288/4 line, including a touchdown in each of the past three games. Robinson will continue to split time behind Tyreek Hill in the playoffs.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson scores in Chiefs’ loss.

Robinson caught two passes for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 loss to Seattle. The score was on a nice catch on the right boundary in the end zone, where he did a nice job of coming back to a dime from Patrick Mahomes. Robinson now has a touchdown in two straight weeks, but he’s difficult to trust in fantasy lineups with championships at stake.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson scores in loss to the Chargers.

It was a five-yard touchdown on the team's opening possession as Patrick Mahomes made another highlight play, and Robinson finished with two receptions for seven yards. Fantasy owners are probably better off looking elsewhere as Kelvin Benjamin gains familiarity in the offense.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches five passes in Week 14.

Robinson gained 42 yards on his five receptions versus the Ravens. This was Robinson's highest receiving total of the season, so he'll look to build on it this Thursday against the Chargers.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches one pass in Week 13.

Robinson gained 38 yards on his lone reception against the Raiders as he caught a pass down the field and crossed to the opposite side of the field while nearly taking it all the way before going out of bounds. Robinson is a better real-life contributor than fantasy asset at the moment.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches one pass in Week 11.

Robinson gained 14 yards on his lone reception against the Rams. Even with Sammy Watkins (foot) playing just a few snaps, Robinson didn't have a big role in a game Kansas City scored 51 points. So it's difficult to trust Robinson in fantasy lineups right now.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches three passes in Week 10.

Robinson gained 30 yards on his three receptions while helping fill in for Sammy Watkins (foot). If Watkins returns to the lineup as expected next week, it'd be difficult to trust Robinson in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches one pass in Week 9.

Robinson's lone reception versus Cleveland went for three yards. He's more of a real-life contributor as Kansas City's fourth receiver than he is a reliable fantasy option.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches one pass against the Broncos.

Robinson's lone Week 8 receptions went for one yard. His role simply isn't big enough to deliver reliable fantasy value right now.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches both targets in Week 7.

Robinson gained 13 yards on his two receptions against the Bengals. The third-year receiver is a solid fourth receiver for the Chiefs, but he's not a fantasy option right now.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches two passes against the Broncos.

Robinson had more playing time after Sammy Watkins left the game with a hamstring injury in the second half, and he played well with his opportunity, catching two passes (on three targets) for 31 yards. One key reception was a 23-yarder to get the Chiefs closer to convert a first down late in the game. Robinson would have some deep-league FLEX appeal if Watkins misses more time, but next week against Jacksonville is a very difficult matchup.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson scores in Week 2.

Robinson had a very nice three-yard touchdown catch in which he tight-roped the back of the end zone to keep his feet in bounds. It was the first touchdown reception of Robinson's career, and his only of the game. He's an excellent fourth receiver for the Chiefs but is obviously off the fantasy radar for now.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson comes up big in playoff loss.

Robinson caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown, doing almost all of his damage on the final drive of the fist half for Kansas City. Unfortunately, they couldn't keep a 21-3 halftime lead, as Tennessee scored 19 unanswered points to upset the Chiefs in Arrowhead. Andy Reid's team needs some help at wide receiver next season, so Robinson probably won't be any higher than third or fourth or the depth chart, making him an unattractive target in fantasy drafts later this year.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson caught four passes for 31 yards in Sunday's win over Denver.

A fourth-round pick out of Florida in 2016, Robinson finishes his sophomore season with 21 receptions for 212 yards in 16 games (eight starts). He will look to make some plays in January.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches two passes in Week 13.

Robinson gained 17 yards on his two receptions (three targets) against the Jets. He contributes as a good blocker and presence on the outside, but Robinson doesn't get enough targets to be a fantasy option at the moment.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson gets four targets against the Bills.

Robinson caught two passes for 24 yards in the Week 12 loss. He has a role on the outside for Kansas City, but Robinson doesn't get enough looks to be a recommended fantasy option.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson gets three targets against the Giants.

Robinson caught one pass for seven yards in the Week 11 loss. Despite his ability, Robinson is not a fantasy option, as his role in Kansas City's offense isn't big enough.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Outside of a 69-yard performance against the Raiders in Week 7, the rookie hasn't done much since Chris Conley went down for the season. He should be on the waiver wire in redraft leagues.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches one pass in Week 8.

Robinson gained five yards on his lone reception against Denver. He'll have an easier matchup against Dallas in Week 9, but Robinson isn't a reliable fantasy option quite yet.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson plays big for Kansas City against Oakland.

The second-year receiver started his second straight game for Chris Conley, who's out for the year with an Achilles injury, and he appears to be getting more and more comfortable in there. Robinson caught five of eight targets for 69 yards, including a long of 33 yards, versus the Raiders. CBS broadcaster Tony Romo said on multiple occasions how much he likes Robinson, and the Chiefs were high on him throughout the preseason. It looks like he'll be a solid contributor for them for the rest of the season, but he's not a recommended fantasy option next week against the Broncos.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson caught one pass in Sunday's loss.

It went for 16 yards. Robinson is replacing Chris Conley in Andy Reid's offense, but he didn't do much against a tough Pittsburg defense. He has a much better matchup against Oakland on Thursday night, but he's no more than a desperation play.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson caught one pass in Sunday night's win over the Texans.

It went for 16 yards. The big news of the game for Robinson came when Chris Conley got injured, as Robinson might simply take his place in the starting lineup for the rest of the season if Albert Wilson keeps his usual role. However, it probably won't lead to much fantasy success in an offense centered around Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson makes three long catches in final preseason game.

The second-year Chiefs receiver had three receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown, including a nice catch on a 53-yard bomb by future starter Patrick Mahomes II. Robinson really took advantage of this final preseason game, and it might have helped him lock up a roster spot with the Chiefs if he was on the bubble. We'll find out for sure on Saturday when cuts are made.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Demarcus Robinson catches one pass in preseason opener for the Chiefs.

His reception was for seven yards. Robinson did also get free for a potentially long touchdown, but rookie Patrick Mahomes II surprisingly underthrew him so it was only 40 yards, but it was wiped out by a holding penalty anyway. Robinson will be a contributor for the Chiefs offense this season, but he probably won't deliver much fantasy value unless Tyreek Hill and/or Chris Conley were to miss time.

Demarcus Robinson | Raiders WR

Andy Reid talks up second-year receiver Demarcus Robinson.

Robinson was a fourth round pick last year, and Reid identified him when talking of replacing Jeremy Maclin. Reid said Robinson has a lot of ability and has had a "good offseason," but that he's "not saying he's that guy right now." The former Florida Gator had maturity issues and was suspended multiple times in college, but Robinson has ability and is someone to keep an eye on, particularly in dynasty leagues.
