Falcons star Julio Jones was praising fellow wide receiver Aldrick Robinson even before Robinson went out and starred for the Falcons in the exhibition opener against Washington on Thursday.
That performance by Robinson, who rates as no better than the No. 4 receiver, is an indication of the potential depth the Falcons have at wide receiver.
“He had a great game for us,” Jones said. “But there is more to come from Al. Also, a lot of the young guys. J.D. (McKissic), great guy, you will see a lot of him. Of course, Mohamed Sanu (and) myself. Just a lot of guys. We are out here, we are working and doing a good job.”
SF WR Aldrick Robinson - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 10 vs. New York Giants
Aldrick Robinson saw 8 targets last week with Pierre Garcon done for the year. Trouble is, he turned them into just 2 receptions for 18 yards. The target volume moves him into flex play consideration, but the production says something different. The Giants will give up passing yardage, so go ahead and roll with Robinson as a flex play.
