Demarcus Robinson, WR
Similar to Hardman, Demarcus Robinson shined in 2019 when he had 32 catches for 449 yards and four touchdowns. Robinson stepped up in a big manner early in 2019 when Hill got hurt early in Week 1 against the Jaguars and went on to miss the next four games.
In Week 2 against the Raiders, Robinson dominated the Raiders defense with six catches for 172 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Robinson contributed to Kansas City’s offense the following week against the Baltimore Ravens when he scored a touchdown when the team scored 23 unanswered points.
However, Robinson only caught one more touchdown the rest of the year and did not have another game with more than four catches.
Like Hardman, Robinson took a step back in production in 2020. Robinson scored just three touchdowns all year. Although Robinson has more receptions and slightly more yards in 2020, his average dropped from 14 yards per catch in 2019 to 10.4 this past season.
Despite Robinson being quiet on the field since Week 4 of the 2019 season, the Chiefs decided to bring him back for 2021 after Watkins moved on in free agency. With Watkins gone, the team will need a new true No. 2 wide receiver. The Chiefs need Robinson, along with Hardman, to step up and help Kansas City’s passing game remain dynamic and one of the best in the NFL.
