Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson has his sights set on a big 2021 season with WR Sammy Watkins departure via free agency. 'Seeing what they saw in me for my role next year, and without Sammy being there, they said it'll pick up a lot more,' Robinson said during a Thursday, April 8, interview on NFL Network. 'And they got a lot of things in store for me. I'm ready to go back to work and see what they got going for me.
'Every other season, it's (been) four, five touchdowns, 500 yards. ... I just think it picks up a little bit more right now. I'm looking for the opportunity -- not for them to give me the opportunity, but go in there and take the opportunity. Go in there and show that I am a guy who can put up 1,000 yards a year and 10 touchdowns. I'm ready to make that happen. They said they've got something in store for me. I'm ready to show them.'
Huddle Up: Robinson, a fourth-round pick in 2016, posted career highs in receptions (45) and receiving yards (466) in 2020 and could certainly be in line for another significant jump if the Chiefs don't add any prime WR help via free agency or the draft.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson likely will have a bigger role in the Divisional Round playoff game with WR Sammy Watkins (calf) unavailable.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson (back) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Robinson could see a few targets in the AFC Divisional Round game against the Cleveland Browns with WR Sammy Watkins (calf) at risk of sitting out. Robinson would be a risky play in any fantasy format without a secure floor of fantasy production.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson caught two passes for 29 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16. He was targeted two times during the game.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson caught six of his eight targets for 44 yards in Week 11 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: The Raiders did a good job of keeping the Chiefs in front of them for the majority of the game, and Robinson was no exception. Robinson also benefited from Mecole Hardman missing some time over the last two weeks due to being placed on the COVID list and Sammy Watkins (hamstring) being ruled out. Both players figure to be more active in practice this week, meaning Robinson can probably go back on the waiver wire in the majority of leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson posted three grabs for 34 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers, but he did also lose a fumble.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson caught four passes for 63 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 8. He was targeted five times during the game.
