There are tons of rookie wide receivers in the NFL that have been turning heads during training camp. New York Giants slot rookie wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson has been turning heads in training camp. He is only 5’11” and weighs 185 lbs though. Robinson has been developing some chemistry with quarterback Daniel Jones, but Jones’s job for this year doesn’t feel safe.
There is a slim chance that Tyrod Taylor could start the opening game for the New York Giants and beyond. Wan’Dale Robinson has packages in this offense that he will be able to run the football out of the backfield, catch screen passes, and run slant routes and use his speed in open space. Robinson was a second-round pick out of the University of Kentucky a season ago.
He played in 13 games last season for them. Wan’Dale Robinson caught 104 passes for 1,334 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. He also rushed for 111 yards on seven carries and zero touchdowns. Robinson is going to be utilized well in an offense set up by offensive coordinator Mike Kafka and head coach Brian Daboll though.
This offense is a wide receiver-friendly offense. Having Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney also help, but the quarterback play will hold this offense back for at least this season. Toney might be the number one and Robinson might be the number two option when this season ends though. Wan’Dale Robinson could be like a Darren Sproles/Deebo Samuel kind of wide receiver. He has a chance to make some noise as a rookie. Speed is one of the most dangerous things to possess as a wide receiver in the NFL.
Robinson might be an option potentially for fantasy football owners in the later rounds. However, the second he has a solid game for the New York Giants, Wan’Dale Robinson is probably going to be a hot commodity as a waiver wire pick up though.
