Game status: Robinson is ACTIVE for Week 13.

Game day update: Allen Robinson is expected to play against the Lions, per Adam Schefter.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson was a late addition to the injury report this week. He hurt his knee in practice on Friday, which the team classified as limited participation, after two days at full tilt. It sounds as if the move was a precautionary one, and head coach Matt Nagy said Friday that he did not believe it was serious.

Fantasy impact: Allen Robinson (knee)

Robinson had a big game last week. He caught eight passes on 13 targets for 74 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers. And this happened with Mitchell Trubisky starting at quarterback. Robinson is clearly Chicago’s No. 1 wideout. He has a great matchup this week against a Lions secondary that’s been very generous to opposing receivers; Detroit’s defense back depth chart is also riddled with injuries.

Wide receiver Darnell Mooney is also questionable, but likely to play this week. If Robinson can’t go, that would give Mooney and Anthony Miller a little more fantasy value.
