Robby Anderson Week 3 Outlook - Jets at Patriots

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Tuesday, Sep 17th

After matching up with Tre'Davious White in Week 1 and Denzel Ward in Week 2, Anderson gets his toughest matchup yet, as he'll match-up with Stephon Gilmore, one of the best cornerbacks in all of football. In two meetings last year (while playing with an actual starting quarterback), Anderson totaled just 2/22/0 on five targets in the first meeting, and then just 3/24/0 on eight targets in the second one. Over the last 18 games, Gilmore has allowed just a 45.1 percent completion-rate in his coverage with just 12.6 yards per reception. Keep in mind that's while covering opposing No. 1 receivers. Can Anderson get loose for one long play? Sure. Should you be relying on it? Nope. He's someone you ideally leave on the bench this week.
