Description: Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that receiver Aldrick Robinson will see more playing going forward with No. 1 receiver Pierre Garcon and top tight end Fred Davis out with injuries. Robinson played 70 percent of the team's snaps the first two games but has only played in 16 percent in his five games since, according to the Washington Post.
Insight: Robinson missed Week 4 due to a concussion he suffered in a freak collision with teammate Brandon Meriweather during pre-game warmups. Robinson started Week 2 with Garcon out but lost the spot to Leonard Hankerson after dropping a deep target and failing to make an impact in the blocking game. Hankerson hasn't produced and dropped a sure touchdown last week against the Steelers. Robinson is a deep sleeper this week against the Panthers.

Description: Washington wide receiver Aldrick Robinson suffered a concussion after colliding with teammate Brandon Meriweather before Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Robinson was on our radar a few weeks ago after a breakout performance in Week 1 (four receptions, 52 yards and a touchdown) but now that Pierre Garcon has returned from injury, he shouldn't carry much fantasy value going forward.

Description: Redskins receiver Aldrick Robinson started in place of the injured Pierre Garcon Sunday and caught two passes for 40 yards but he dropped a pass that would have been a huge gain.
Insight: Robinson let a long bomb from Robert Griffin III that would have at least been a 50-yard completion bounce off his chest downfield for an incompletion. Meanwhile, Leonard Hankerson caught a 68-yard touchdown pass.

Description: With Pierre Garcon a likely inactive for Week 2 due to a foot injury, Aldrick Robinson figures to see a major role against the Rams. Robinson took over last Sunday after Garcon left the game and finished with four catches for 52 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: According to the Washington Post, the Shanahans were very impressed with Robinson in the preseason and they called plays like they would have if Garcon was available. "Aldrick came in and we still kept going at him like we would have Pierre," Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan said. Robinson could post WR3 numbers in Week 2 if he starts.
