2. Alen Robinson registers north of 15 fantasy points

For a very long time, the Minnesota Vikings boasted one of the most feared secondaries in the NFL. Then, the team cut ties with cornerbacks Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and Mackensie Alexanders last spring due to money limitations.

Resultingly, the Vikings rank 30th in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. Only the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons have been worse in 2020.

The Bears are not the type of team to set aerial passing lanes on fire during a football game. Nick Foles is good in spots, but that is generally in a reservist role. This week, though, Allen Robinson will be the benefactor of a weak Vikings secondary. Minnesota does have some promising rookies in its secondary, but those men are tasked with maturing on the fly.

Therefore, Robinson will have a considerably productive day at home against the 3-5 Vikings. Fantasy owners can routinely take solace in knowing that Robinson is the sure-fire WR1 on the Bears. The competition for this title isn’t even existent. Robinson is “the guy.”

The Vikings and Bears rarely stack up points when the two squads hook up. Regardless, Robinson will still get his targets, and that will lead to fantasy points.
