Toughest WRs on Cincinnati Bengals 2021 Schedule – No. 3: Allen Robinson

The main thing holding Allen Robinson back in recent years (which is funny considering what he’s been able to accomplish) is the quarterback carousel in Chicago. Even with Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles throwing to him last year, Robinson still dominated for the Bears, grabbing a whopping 102 receptions for 1,250 yards and six touchdowns.

Quite the production considering the circumstances.

Robinson has proven he can put up big numbers without a star quarterback so if Andy Dalton is his quarterback in Week 2 when the Bengals head to Chicago, he’s going to be a major problem. Nevermind if rookie Justin Fields is throwing to Robinson, then things could be even trickier when the Bengals meet up with the Bears.

It was difficult choosing Robinson’s best game from a year ago because he had so many. He recorded two games with 123 receiving yards and scored a touchdown in each of those and also had a two-touchdown game against the Packers in Week 12.

Robinson was the offensive spark the Bears desperately needed last season and even with another new quarterback in town, he’s hoping to do that again not just against the Bengals, but the other 13 teams on the schedule as well.
