WR - CAR
Former Jets WR Robby Anderson is headed to Carolina on a two-year, $20M deal, with $12M in year one.
Anderson is reunited with his former college coach at Temple, Matt Rhule. Undrafted in 2016, Anderson has had four productive seasons with the Jets. He hasn’t had consistent quarterback play or coaching, which has suppressed his overall fantasy ceiling in New York. He’ll join forces with QB Teddy Bridgewater, WRs D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel, and RB Christian McCaffrey in Carolina this upcoming season. That’s a lot of speed and firepower from the skill positions, and it’ll be interesting to see how all are utilized. McCaffrey and Moore are the first two options for the Panthers on offense, but Anderson could quickly become the third. Consider him a WR3 for the time being with Bridgewater somewhat limited as to how much he can throw the football. This will also open up more targets in New York for WR Jamison Crowder, who quickly became a favorite target of QB Sam Darnold last season.
Robby Anderson and the New York Jets are both interested in working out a deal that would keep Anderson in New York for multiple years. Nothing official has been agreed to.
Anderson could reprise his role in a Jets' uniform despite the early concerns that he would depart in free agency. Anderson would likely be more predictable for fantasy if he maintained his spot with New York, however he could easily explode in value on another team with a more mature quarterback and offense. He's currently the WR38 in our early expert consensus rankings.
According to ESPN, the Jets are attempting to re-sign free-agent wide receiver Robby Anderson.
The expectation was that Anderson would likely depart this offseason. While that could still happen, the team is at least trying to keep Anderson in the fold as a weapon for Sam Darnold. If Anderson heads out via free agency, expect the team to be even more aggressive in filling the position via the NFL Draft. Anderson could be an interesting fantasy player depending on his landing spot, though he's been inconsistent to this point. He's currently the WR38 in our early expert consensus rankings.
Robby Anderson caught three of his seven targets for 18 yards in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.
Anderson is headed to free agency, reportedly seeking $10M/year, which he could well get. The Jets have little else at wide receiver, so they may be inclined to bring him back, but Anderson's value will depend wholly on where he lands. He's not a true alpha receivers, so he's probably better off on a thin depth chart like the Jets.
Robby Anderson (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Anderson will suit up in Sunday's Week 17 contest against the Bills. Buffalo will be resting most of their starters, Anderson should have a plus matchup in Week 17. He has hauled in 24 catches for 402 yards and three touchdowns in his last five games, making him a borderline WR2 for the season finale.
