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.

Baker Mayfield, QB CAR

1:49pm EDT 7/6/22

Mayfield traded to Panthers

The Browns are trading QB Baker Mayfield to the Panthers for a conditional 5th-round pick in 2024, NFL Network reports. The 2 teams "split the financials to make it happen," according to Ian Rapoport, so Carolina is presumably picking up about half of Mayfield's nearly $19 million 2022 cap hit. Mayfield is coming off a disappointing, injury-riddled 2021 season but played well the previous year, finishing 10th among 32 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' passing grades. In fact, Mayfield earned higher PFF passing grades in each of his first 3 NFL seasons than QB Sam Darnold has managed in any of his 4 NFL seasons. So Mayfield is a tangible upgrade for D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, Terrace Marshall and Christian McCaffrey. Mayfield himself looks like just a middling QB2, although those weapons give him some weekly upside. Check out the updated projections for the Panthers offense.

Update: Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Mayfield agreed to shave about $3.5 million off his 2022 salary. The Browns will pay him $10.5 million this year; the Panthers around $5 million.

Panthers WR Robby Anderson missed most of OTAs and minicamp with a nagging hip injury. It’s been an eventful offseason for the former Jet, who contemplated retirement over the spring. If healthy, Anderson should slot into the #2 role and have little trouble beating a WR72 ADP (per FFPC best ball drafting). “I think in this offense, Robbie will have a ton of production,” HC Matt Rhule said. “I think last year was a confluence of many different events. And I think in this offense, the way we’re doing things, he’ll have a ton of production.”

Panthers WR Robby Anderson showed up for the start of mandatory minicamp on Monday. He made headlines when he posted (and then quickly deleted) a tweet on Saturday about considering retirement. But it looks like he's decided to play this season. Anderson is coming off a disappointing 2021 campaign but is underpriced at his current WR71 FFPC ADP. He sits 16 spots higher in our PPR WR Rankings.

Panthers WR Robby Anderson tweeted Saturday that he's “thinking bout retiring.” Well, that came out of left field. Anderson, 29, was the subject of offseason trade rumors. But we expected him to open the season as the WR2 behind DJ Moore. Carolina opens its mandatory minicamp on the 14th, so we’ll learn more then. Should Anderson actually retire, Terrace Marshall's stock would get a considerable boost.

UPDATE: Anderson deleted the tweet on Saturday afternoon.

Panthers WR Robby Anderson (quad) is active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. He didn’t practice all week, so it’s safe to assume that he’s not close to 100%.
