As much as he would probably like to, Lamar Jackson can’t target Mark Andrews every time he drops back to pass. Someone else needs to be a threat, and this past Sunday, that person was Demarcus Robinson.

The Florida product had one of the best games of his career, registering nine receptions for 128 yards against Carolina. While more WR1-level games aren’t in his future, Robinson faces little competition on Baltimore’s receiving depth chart (Devin Duvernay, James Proche) so he’s an intriguing add this week.

Sean Koerner: Robinson is coming off a massive game — 9/128/0 — and appears set to become the Ravens’ unquestioned No. 1 wide receiver with Rashod Bateman out for the season. However, I view him more as a mid-range WR4 type who still has to compete with Mark Andrews for targets in a run-heavy offense.

The Ravens also have one of the easiest remaining schedules, which means we will likely see run-heavy game scripts more often than not. I would only be aggressive in targeting Robinson if you are desperate for a WR in a deeper league.


Samantha Previte: Here’s to you, Demarcus Robinson.

Robinson had a monster game in the Ravens’ 13-3 win over the Panthers. He caught all nine of his targets for 128 yards and is currently the WR8 in half-PPR scoring. Devin Duvernay was held to one catch for three yards.

The Ravens need all the help they can get on the pass-catching side with Bateman out for the year. Robinson could be emerging as the team’s WR1 and may be teeing up another solid fantasy game with the Jaguars‘ 30th-ranked pass defense (per DVOA) on deck.
