Jets WR Robby Anderson (ankle) didn't practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bears. With WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) also out, the Jets are down to Jermaine Kearse, Andre Roberts, Charone Peake and the newly signed Rishard Matthews. Kearse is the "best" fantasy bet, but try to avoid the situation.
Panthers HC Matt Rhule is “hoping” to “add some vertical element” to WR Robby Anderson’s game this season. That was Anderson’s forte across 4 years in New York, where his average depth of target ranged between 13.6 and 17.3 yards. Last year in Carolina, his tally stood at only 9.8 yards. “When you look at it, my game in New York was more down the field and vertical, but I didn’t have the intermediate opportunities,” Anderson said via the Charlotte Observer. “I think with Coach Rhule expressing that, and then you mix that with last year, I think that’s something to look forward to.” Anderson, coming off the board deep in WR3 territory, remains a value option in 2021 drafts.
The Panthers have agreed to a 2-year deal with WR Robby Anderson, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Anderson -- who played under new HC Matt Rhule at Temple -- figures to start opposite D.J. Moore in Carolina's renovated offense. Curtis Samuel, meanwhile, could fit in the slot. Although Samuel spent a lot of time running downfield routes last season, he was a short-range playmaker as a RB/WR in college. He doesn't look like a top-36 fantasy WR heading into the season but has some upside. We'll be interested to see how the offense shakes out under Rhule and OC Joe Brady. Anderson leaves behind 96 targets (an 18.4% share) for the Jets to disperse.
Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He was limited in practice all week, so don’t expect him to be operating at 100% today. Anderson’s matchup did get a boost, though, with CB Tre’Davious White deactivated.
Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bills after a limited week of practice. We’ve heard nothing to suggest the injury is serious, but it’s possible Anderson is held out of this meaningless finale. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.
