Wan’Dale Robinson Dynasty Value | Fantasy Outlook, Ranking, and More

New York Giants WR Wan'Dale Robinson's first two NFL seasons did not do his dynasty value any favors. How should fantasy managers handle Robinson going forward?

New York Giants WR Wan’Dale Robinson’s dynasty value is hanging on by a thread right now after a lackluster start to his career. If he can’t post a fantasy-relevant season in 2024, dynasty managers may start to cut bait.

How should fantasy football managers value Robinson going forward?

Wan’Dale Robinson’s Dynasty Outlook

It’s been a rough start to Robinson’s career. He barely played during the first half of his rookie season. Then, when he finally had his breakout game, he tore his ACL.

Robinson finished his rookie season with just 227 receiving yards. The list of wide receivers to be drafted in the first three rounds and fail to reach 500 receiving yards as a rookie is not filled with many relevant names.

Would Robinson likely have reached the threshold had he not gotten hurt? Probably. But historically, that just doesn’t matter.

Since 2011, there have been 97 wide receivers drafted in the first three rounds who did not amass 500 receiving yards in their first NFL season. Six of them had a quality fantasy season in their first three years. That’s a 6.2% hit rate.

When you lower the threshold to 250 yards, Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams and Washington Commanders WR Curtis Samuel are the only names that stand out.

Robinson is fighting an uphill battle against historical precedents, and his sophomore season didn’t exactly do a ton to inspire confidence.

Last season, Robinson saw a respectable 18.6% target share. However, on a low-volume passing offense with bottom-rate quarterback play, Robinson only managed 60 receptions for 525 yards. He had brief moments as a startable fantasy asset, but ultimately averaged just 8.9 fantasy points per game.

So far, I’ve painted quite a pessimistic picture of Robinson. With that said, I do like him as a player and think he has a shot at being one of the outliers.

Should You Trade Robinson in Dynasty?

Robinson is still young. He will be healthier in 2024, being another year removed from his ACL tear.

He’s never going to be a high aDOT (average depth of target) guy. His 5.3 aDOT was 97th in the league last year, but he can be the type who has weeks where he gobbles up underneath targets and posts respectable PPR numbers. My concern is I don’t envision that ever being consistent enough to trust weekly in fantasy lineups.

Robinson should continue to improve., but he’s trapped in a really bad offensive situation with no turnaround in sight. I don’t see greatness in his future. If Robinson puts together even a single WR3 season, that would be a win for him.

The trade market is unlikely to be strong for Robinson. If you could somehow get a rookie second-rounder, you should accept that immediately, but that’s probably a pipe dream. The best course of action is to just hold and hope he has enough flashes to pull off a useful trade or give you confidence he can at least emerge as a spot starter.
