McCown started the team’s first 13 games last season and sat 13th in fantasy points prior to going down with an injury in Week 14. The 38-year-old is a strong bet to open the season under center, but assuming the Jets spend an early first-round pick on a quarterback, McCown figures to simply be keeping the seat warm. McCown exceeded even the loftiest expectations last season, but the Jets’ roster is in rough shape, leaving him as no more than a back-end QB2 and occasional streaming option.
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed guard Andrew Norwell. The former Panther was one of the most coveted free agents in this year’s class and gives the team a big upgrade over incumbent Patrick Omameh. Norwell’s addition will provide additional protection for Blake Bortles and help open larger running lanes for Leonard Fournette, who is best viewed as a second-round target in Authentic Kareem Martin Jersey 2018 fantasy leagues.

That data is important as we try to understand why Robinson’s production fell so far in 2016 despite his seeing more targets (149). Robinson was limited to 73 receptions for 883 yards and six touchdowns. He ranked second at the position in pass routes (665), sixth in targets, fifth in end zone targets (16) and sixth in OTD (8.2) but finished 25th in fantasy points. Robinson’s aDOT fell to 13.3, his YPR to 12.1, his catch rate from 54 percent to 49 percent and his run after the catch (RAC) from 4.4 to 2.8, while the rate of balls directed at him that were off-target jumped from 23 percent to 28 percent.
The big difference? A massive drop in production on the deep ball. On balls thrown 20-plus yards down field in 2015, Blake Bortles connected with Robinson on 15 of 43 targets for 591 yards and two touchdowns. In 2016, Robinson caught one of 24 targets for 24 yards and no scores. We talk often about statistical regression to the mean, but that’s an all-timer of an overcorrection.

One thing Robinson was never short on in Jacksonville was target volume. He enjoyed 8.0 targets per game as a rookie, 9.25 in 2015 and 9.31 in 2016. Considering Chicago’s underwhelming group of pass-catchers, it’s fair to assume that Robinson will handle nearly one-quarter of the targets in 2018. That would be enough to allow him strong fantasy production in what will likely be a pass-first offense under new head coach Matt Nagy. Nagy, of course, comes from the Andy Reid coaching tree, and Kansas City operated a pass-first offense during the two seasons Nagy served as offensive coordinator (2016-17).
