2019 Fantasy Outlook
Robinson missed three games in 2018 but was producing at a level that would've equated to a career-high 60 tackles. We'd like to think he'd be able to further build upon those numbers, but the offseason additions of other talented defensive linemen like Trey Flowers and Mike Daniels could threaten Robinson's snap count.

Disappointing 2019 campaign

January 10, 2020
Robinson (shoulder) produced 40 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three pass breakups, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries over 13 games in 2019.
ANALYSIS
Expectations were high for the Lions' defensive front as a whole in 2019, and Robinson was no exception. While it's not perfectly clear who's to blame for the team's struggles, Robinson did not perform as well as he did in 2018 and ultimately finished the campaign with a three-year low in tackles despite playing alongside both Damon Harrison and Trey Flowers. That's a shame for the 24-year-old who had been playing in a contract year, and the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent probably won't be cashing in this offseason like many thought he would at this same time last year.

Week 6 Reactions: Turning Back the Clock
October 15, 2017
Adrian Peterson had a vintage performance Sunday against the Bucs, rushing for more than 130 yards and two touchdowns and showing everyone that he's ready to lead a backfield once again.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Quickly becoming recognized as one of the best pass-swatting linemen in the league, Robinson leads all defensive tackles with 13 pass breakups over the past two seasons. He's also churned out 83 tackles and 2.5 sacks over that same time span, steadily becoming the type of player Detroit was hoping to get before choosing him in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. However, it's difficult to attain fantasy relevance from the interior of the defensive line, and these numbers don't quite make him worthy of significant IDP consideration. As such, Robinson has more value in reality than in the fantasy realm.
Robinson was on the field for 39.7 percent of the Lions' defensive snaps during his rookie season -- second only to Haloti Ngata on the defensive line -- and posted 30 tackles, two sacks and seven passes defended, which was third-most among all defensive lineman in the league. The 2016 second-rounder is expected to see even more playing time in 2017 and certainly has the look of an ascending IDP candidate in formats that require a DL.
Robinson is deceptively athletic for a man his size, but dropped to the second round in this year's NFL Draft due to concerns over his pass-rush ability. He will bolster Detroit's run defense immediately, however. But, playing behind Haloti Ngata and Tyrunn Walker, Robinson is unlikely to make an IDP splash his rookie year.
