Bijan Robinson shines in his debut: He played in over 70% of offensive snaps with the starters and made a few nice plays.

Several Day 2 rookie wide receivers earn roles in 11 personnel: Every second-round wide receiver and even a few round-three receivers have already earned significant playing time in Week 1.

Chigoziem Okonkwo takes 100% of 11 personnel snaps with the starters: He rarely played in 11 personnel as a rookie, making this a big step forward for his playing time.

Bijan Robinson shines with the starters: Robinson didn’t start the game, but he gained 26 yards on one drive with the starters.

  • Tyler Allgeier started the game and played the first two offensive snaps, but Robinson proceeded to play 12 of the following 15.
  • The fact that Robinson hasn't started this preseason should not be concerning. Plenty of teams have opted to start veterans at the position — even in the regular season — just to have the younger player play more snaps and have more fantasy success.
  • Robinson consistently played four snaps in a row, with Allgeier giving him a break for one or two snaps.
  • Robinson ran the ball four times. He broke off a 12-yard run, and he also caught a 6-yard pass.
  • It’s worth noting that Cordarrelle Patterson missed this game with a soft tissue injury and is expected to miss a few weeks.
  • Both Robinson and Allgeier were taken out for the second drive.
  • Robinson is capable of living up to his ADP if he’s playing more than 70% of offensive snaps, as he did in this game.
