Demarcus Robinson

What better way is there to add to the wide receiver room than to take a potential stud from a division rival?

Such a player is available for the picking in Kansas City’s Demarcus Robinson.

As fantasy football players know well, Demarcus Robinson had an incredibly up and down year for the Chiefs in 2019, deviating between games without receptions and performances as great as his 172 yard, 2 touchdown game against the Oakland Raiders.

Just like Marcus Johnson, Demarcus Robinson would perfectly fill the Travis Benjamin role of a burner.

However, what Robinson would be in a larger role is a massive question without an obvious answer. He performed well for the Chiefs in spurts but disappeared at times. However, on a team as talented as the Kansas City Chiefs, that is to be expected.

Similar to a rookie, the potential is sky-high but the floor could be quite low. Still, at the right price, Demarcus Robinson could represent a long-term option for the Chargers, as he is at just 25 years of age.
