Fantasy Football: Top 10 WR Heading Into NFL 2016

3. Allen Robinson (JAX)

Jacksonville has one of the most promising teams in the upcoming season, and one of the quickest rising receivers in the game in Allen Robinson.

His rookie season in 2014 didn’t show much to get anyone excited, as he only appeared in 10 games and caught two touchdowns with 548 yards receiving.

In his defense, Blake Bortles was in his first year and the Jaguars still didn’t have an identity, as they were an awful team where no one really succeeded.

2015 was a different story as Bortles seemed to find his groove and had an incredible season, whereas Robinson also reaped the benefits of a team finding their way into the talks of a playoff contender.  Compiling 1,400 yards on 80 receptions and 14 touchdowns on his way to his first Pro Bowl nod, Robinson is quickly becoming a well-loved fantasy receiver.

He is the first Jaguars wideout to have 1,000+ yards in a single season since Jimmy Smith and also broke the record for most touchdown receptions in a season for a Jaguar.

The Jaguars might be the most improved team this offseason with their off-season acquisitions and great draft picks.  They boosted an already stingy defense mightily, which should translate into more appearances for the up and coming young offense.

If Bortles continues his progression Robinson will also grow right along with him and will make Jaguar fans, as well as many fantasy owners incredibly ecstatic.

Prediction: 115 Catches – 1750 Yards – 14 Touchdowns
