Robby Anderson arrested

New York Jets beat reporter Rich Cimini is reporting WR Robby Anderson was arrested in South Florida on Thursday night for charges that include resisting an officer, harming a public servant or family and fleeing the police. Cimini is adding that the team is aware of Anderson's arrest but have yet to comment.

Fantasy Impact

This is Anderson's second South Florida arrest in a year. Last offseason, the troubled wideout was picked up while at a music festival for similar charges. As a result, Anderson, who is coming off of a breakout season, recording a 63-941-7 stat line -- he finished as the WR16 with 137 fantasy points -- could face disciplinary actions from the NFL for his conduct off the field. From a fantasy perspective, Anderson's ADP could be affected if he is banned for any amount of games. His ADP will also depend on the Jets' quarterback situation, plus, the role of Quincy Enunwa in the wake of his eventual return from a season-ending neck injury suffered in the preseason.

Robby Anderson disappoints in season finale

Robby Anderson caught one of three targets for two yards in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing end to the season, but Anderson can take solace in the fact that he proved to everyone that his rookie-year performance wasn’t a fluke. The second-year man out of Temple established himself as the Jets’ top receiver this season, leading all wideouts in targets, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. The Jets' quarterback situation is very much up in the air for next season, but Anderson may have keeper value in deep leagues and remains in the WR2 conversation for next season.

Robby Anderson leads Jets in receiving yards against the Chargers

Robby Anderson caught five of seven targets for 51 yards in the Jets’ Week 16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Predictably, Anderson took a step back against the Chargers with Bryce Petty under center. However, the second-year receiver was Petty’s preferred option in the passing attack, catching 51 of his 119 passing yards on the day. Even with a high floor, any fantasy owner who has their championship game in Week 17 shouldn’t start Anderson and he offers very little DFS value for the remainder of the season.

Robby Anderson leads Jets receivers in targets

Robby Anderson caught five of 12 targets for 40 yards in the Jets’ Week 15 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Anderson was clearly Bryce Petty’s favorite target against the Saints, seeing a whopping 12 targets on the afternoon. However, Petty never gave Anderson a chance to take advantage of his speed as he didn’t take many shots down the field. Anderson’s fantasy value naturally takes a hit with Petty under center going forward, but the second-year man out of Temple could be considered a boom-bust Flex play in PPR leagues based on the sheer volume of targets he’s bound to see.

Robby Anderson leads Jets in receiving against the Broncos

Robby Anderson caught three of six targets for 27 yards in the Jets’ Week 14 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

The Broncos' dominant secondary kept Anderson in check Sunday afternoon, holding the second-year wideout under 30 yards receiving for the first time since Week 5. The New Orleans Saints don't present the most favorable bounce-back match-up and having Bryce Petty under center going forward isn't going to do him any favors, but Anderson is still the number one option in the Jets offense. Anderson should be considered a boom-bust WR3/Flex play for those still alive in their fantasy playoffs next week.
