View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Anderson posted career lows last season in …
    • receiving yards
    • yards per catch
    • yards per game
    • catch rate
    • yards per target
    • yards per route run
    • contested catch rate
    • passer rating on targets his way
    • … and probably other categories
  • His target share fell by 6 percentage points – from 24.3% to 18.4% – despite Carolina importing Sam Darnold, whom Anderson had played with for 2 Jets seasons. His target share sat even lower (15.7%) in Darnold’s 9 full games.
  • Anderson’s average depth of target rebounded from a career low in 2020 but still sat several yards short of his Jets averages (across sources for that stat).
  • According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Anderson ranked 5th worst among league qualifiers in average yards after catch per reception vs. expectation. The only players behind him were Cameron Brate, Marvin Jones, Christian Kirk and Tyler Higbee. Teammate D.J. Moore ranked 51 spots higher than Anderson (71st out of 127).
  • Anderson has seen his rate of targets per route fall in 3 straight seasons shared with Darnold. His annual rate of targets by routes:
    • 16.5% (Jets, no Darnold)
    • 22.6% (Jets, no Darnold)
    • 19.9% (Jets, with Darnold)
    • 16.2% (Jets, with Darnold)
    • 24.3% (Panthers, no Darnold)
    • 16.9% (Panthers, with Darnold)
  • Anderson tweeted early in June that he was “thinking about retiring.” But he later deleted the tweet, reported for minicamp and said he “was just thinking out loud.”
  • HC Matt Rhule says he expects a “ton of production” in new OC Ben McAdoo’s system, which Rhule says is “perfect” for Anderson. Rhule added that Anderson can play all 3 WR spots.
  • Anderson has run from the slot on 32.6% and 37.6% of pass snaps in 2 years with Carolina, both higher rates than in any of his 4 Jets seasons.
  • Rhule’s history with Anderson dates back to Temple, where Rhule lobbied the university to allow Anderson to return from an academic dismissal.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

History tells us that HC Matt Rhule believes in Anderson. It’s a lot tougher for fantasy players to believe in him after a terrible 2021, but the cost to acquire has fallen so low that you no longer need to even believe. Anderson sits at WR75 on Underdog and WR69 on FFPC as of this writing. He finished WR49 in PPR last year; WR51 in half-PPR. His lowest half-PPR finish was WR66 back in his rookie year (2016). In between came finishes of 16th, 35th, 39th and 23rd.

That upside makes Anderson easily worth this year’s price. At the same time, he’s not a “must” if you’d rather just avoid the Panthers passing game.

Rondale Moore, WR ARI

9:38pm EST 11/6/22

Moore leads Cards in targets

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore drew a team-high 10 targets in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. He caught 8 of them for 69 yards. TE Zach Ertz followed with 8 targets, catching 5 for 40 yards and a TD. WR DeAndre Hopkins claimed the team's other TD among his 4 catches for 36 yards on 5 targets. WR Robbie Anderson added 1 reception among 3 targets for a loss of 4 yards.

Cardinals WR Robbie Anderson is active for tonight's game vs. the Saints. He joined the team just 3 days ago. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said earlier tonight that Anderson might play "more than you expect," but he still can't be trusted in Week 7 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury wouldn't say whether WR Robbie Anderson will play vs. the Saints on Thursday night. "If we do it, it'll be very limited and make sure he knows (his plays)," Kingsbury said. No surprise considering Anderson just joined the Cardinals on Monday. He's not a Week 7 fantasy option but is worth stashing in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the foot injury for Cardinals WR Marquise Brown is "potentially season-ending." Brown is undergoing further testing today to determine the extent. The trade for WR Robbie Anderson also seemed to point to concern on the team's part. We'll watch for the official diagnosis on Brown.

The Panthers are trading WR Robbie Anderson to the Cardinals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Anderson had already been on the trade block before his sideline altercation with Carolina's coaching staff in Sunday's loss to the Rams. He heads from a pathetic Panthers passing game to a struggling Cardinals passing game. When Arizona's WR corps is healthy, Anderson might be the #4 WR behind DeAndre Hopkins, Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore. Brown went down with a foot injury late in Week 6, though, so we'll see about his status. Anderson is worth stashing in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams, but we're not very excited about his rest-of-season outlook.

Update: The Panthers are receiving a 2024 6th-round pick and a 2025 7th-rounder for Anderson, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
