Is a Robby Anderson Breakout Game Coming?

Another game, another missed opportunity.

A week after garnering 11 targets to trail D.J. Moore by just 1 for the team lead, Anderson tied Moore for the lead with 7 looks in Sunday’s loss to the Eagles. He caught only 2 of them for 30 yards, though.

Anderson narrowly missed an early 2nd-quarter connection that would have been a 50-yard TD when CB Avonte Maddox made a tremendous play to cut in front and knock the ball away. Otherwise, QB Sam Darnold struggled through a game that produced 3 INTs and his worst passer rating of the season by a wide margin.

To be fair, there were also a couple of catches Anderson probably could (should?) have made but didn’t.

Anderson’s usage the past 2 weeks still leaves some room for optimism. He has seen 23.7% target share over that span after just 10.3% through the 1st 3 weeks. And those 2 games have followed HC Matt Rhule saying they needed to get Anderson the ball more.

Don’t be shocked if it finally clicks 1 of these weeks. The fact that it hasn’t through 5 games, though, means we can’t trust Anderson too high in the WR rankings.

Carolina's next 3 opponents:

Minnesota Vikings
