Robiskie is the same way. He isn't a lot like Owens in terms of playing style, but he can absolutely make big plays down the field... Just in a different way.

he is a possession reciever...

If Robiskie is being looked at similiar to Fitz then I was unaware of it...

I keep hearing his name as a deep threat for some reason...
