Allen Robinson is on the Bears final injury report for Week 8. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

UPDATE: Robinson is ACTIVE for the game and has a 24-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter against the Saints.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson is listed as questionable on this week’s injury report ahead of Sunday’s matchup with the New Orleans Saints. Robinson is still dealing with a concussion that forced him out of last week’s game in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy impact: Allen Robinson (concussion)

Robinson was not able to practice this week, and has yet to clear the league’s concussion protocol. Therefore, he is most likely not going to play this week’s game.

Chicago’s clear No. 1 receiver, Robinson has 44 catches on 70 targets with 544 yards and two touchdowns. With Robinson out of the lineup, Darnell Mooney should be on your fantasy radar. He has 17 targets over his last three games, and stands to see more without Robinson. There’s also Anthony Miller, who hasn’t done much this season, but he could see an uptick in his workload without Robinson in uniform this week.
