Keep in mind, we don't yet know who tested positive and who may have just been in close contact. Obviously Moore and Samuel are the big fantasy players here so owners will have to monitor throughout the week. When we reported on Moore a few hours ago, it was noted he was dealing with an ankle injury so his status was in doubt anyway for Week 14. Anderson could end up as the WR1 if Moore and Samuel are out. The team hopes McCaffrey can play this week as well.
CAR WR Robby Anderson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. New Orleans Saints
Robby Anderson was held to 39 yards against Washington last week, but he caught seven balls, was targeted 10 times and he found the end zone, turning in a solid all-around PPR fantasy day. Anderson has already eclipsed his career highs in receptions and targets, and has over 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career. He’s been a heavily-targeted option in the Carolina passing game and should continue to be featured in the team’s final contest.
The Saints rank seventh in aFPA to opposing wide receivers, and Anderson may struggle against this secondary. However, the Panthers are likely to be playing from behind, which could mean significant targets all around for the Panthers’ trio of receivers. Anderson has been a quality WR2 option through much of the season, and we have him ranked right there again for the final game.
