Panthers WR Robby Anderson (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Bucs. He didn’t practice all week, but HC Matt Rhule called him a game-time decision on Friday. Anderson isn’t a Week 18 fantasy option, but his absence would open up more targets for WR D.J. Moore.
Panthers WR Robbie Anderson led the Panthers in targets (8), receptions (5) and receiving yards (102) in Sunday's loss to the Browns, with an 75-yard TD delivering most of that production. WR D.J. Moore checked in 2nd with 6 targets, catching 3 for 43 yards. Anderson claimed nearly 30% of Panthers targets for the game, with Moore garnering 22.2%.
Per NFL insider Adam Caplan, Panthers WR Robbie Anderson has “kind of revived his career at training camp.” Following an offseason tweet suggesting retirement, Anderson’s reportedly been rejuvenated by new QB Baker Mayfield. Citing Panthers sources, Caplan shared that the team knew Mayfield had earned the starting gig after 2 weeks of practice. The QB upgrade and a clear path to the #2 role makes Anderson a nice late-round flier.
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.
