Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Target – Number 11: Allen Robinson
Allen Robinson flies under the radar way too much and because of this, he isn’t the most flashy name on this list. Robinson is, however, just a solid consistent producer despite mostly bad quarterback play throughout his career.
Robinson quietly finished third in targets last season and that shouldn’t change this season. He is going to have plenty of opportunity to put up fantasy points.
He finished as WR11 last season and could be playing with the best quarterback he has played with in his career so far if Nick Foles wins the job. Robinson is a very high floor receiver and should be considered as a WR1 more than he is currently getting credit for.
Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Target – Number 10: Cooper Kupp
Cooper Kupp is another receiver who should finish high in the wide receiver ranks, but could also be looked at as a slight risk.
First starting with the bad, he had 10 touchdowns last year, which could mean a regression in that category is likely which would be a big blow to his fantasy value. Also, he was actually targeted less than teammate Robert Woods despite playing in one more game than Woods.
However, despite the potential risks, the Rams are not returning Brandin Cooks, which could mean more targets. Kupp could turn out to be very touchdown dependent, but overall the added work with the loss of Cooks out weighs his risk.
Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Target – Number 9: Adam Thielen
Adam Thielen only played in 10 games last season due to injury, so that kind of derailed his fantasy season, but don’t forget that this is the same dude who produced a top seven fantasy season the year prior.
His WR7 finish in 2018 was also when he was battling for targets with Stefon Diggs, who has since been shipped off to Buffalo. Thielen is another guy who is flying under the radar a bit, but if he is healthy there’s a very good chance he finishes in the top five.
Thielen might not be getting as hyped as he normally would, but now that he’s THE guy in Minnesota, he’s going to do big things for both the Vikings and your fantasy squad.
