Draft note
by John Paulsen
Anderson finished as the No. 23 receiver (half-PPR) in his first season with the Panthers, drawing a career- and team-high 136 targets from Teddy Bridgewater. Now he’s being reunited with his old quarterback, Sam Darnold, his teammate for three years in New York. In the 24 games from 2018-19 that Anderson played with Darnold, he averaged 3.5 catches for 56 yards and 0.46 touchdowns, which are solid WR3 numbers. It’s a new team and a new scheme, but Anderson’s familiarity with Darnold should help. Some are worried about the team’s transition from Bridgewater to Darnold, but Bridgewater’s numbers (3,733 yards, 15 touchdowns) were nothing Darnold can’t replicate or improve upon.

CAR WR Robby Anderson - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Robby Anderson completely changed the nature of his game last season with the Panthers. He went from being considered mostly a deep threat, to a well-rounded receiver. While that made his average yards per reception plummet from a career 14.8 to just 11.5 last year, it also gave him career-highs in targets, receptions and yardage – 136/95/1,096. Anderson thrived opposite D.J. Moore in Joe Brady’s offense and should continue to be featured heavily this year. Sam Darnold will be the new quarterback, but Anderson’s familiarity with him should help the transition.

Fantasy Downside

Anderson only had three touchdowns last season, his lowest since his rookie year, when he had only 78 targets. The Panthers have really struggled to get touchdowns to their outside receivers the past few years, and we’ll be counting on an erratic and still unproven Darnold to improve on that.

2021 Bottom Line

Anderson is a decent low-end WR2 option in most leagues with a little less upside than some of the other guys drafted around him in the eighth round – DeVonta Smith and Courtland Sutton – but plenty to like. His targets should make him a quality every-week starter and if he slides a round or two in your draft, he’s well worth the cost to shore up the back end of your starting wide receiver corps.
