The New York Giants‘ struggles on the offensive side of the football continued on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. But they did have one bright spot on the night in the form of WR Wan’Dale Robinson.

Should Wan’Dale Robinson Be a Fantasy Waiver Wire Add in Week 5?
The Giants’ offense has generated just 46 points through their first 15 quarters to start the year, which has led to atrocious fantasy numbers from the majority of the skill-position players through the first four games of the season.
However, we may finally have a Giants WR to believe in as a viable fantasy option moving forward. The receiver is Wan’Dale Robinson.
Robinson made his 2023 debut in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers, but he only played 22% of the offensive snaps in his first game back from a torn ACL in his rookie season.
He saw five targets against the Niners and another six through the first three quarters against the Seahawks. Robinson looked twitchy and explosive with his touches against the Seattle defense, which is encouraging for his outlook for the remainder of the season.

Robinson ended his rookie season with his first 100-yard game prior to sustaining a torn ACL. In that contest, he saw 13 targets and generated nine receptions in the final game of his 2022 campaign.
Better days should be ahead for this Giants offense once Saquon Barkley returns.
If this offense starts to sustain more drives with Barkley back in the fold and Robinson becomes the go-to option in the passing game for quarterback Daniel Jones, Robinson could present top-35 potential on a weekly basis in PPR leagues at the wide receiver position.
He is certainly worth a waiver wire add in Week 5 to see if his role expands in the coming weeks.
