Former Jets’ WR Robby Anderson is signing a two-year, $20 million deal including $12 million in year one with the Carolina Panthers, per source.
This is a surprising signing given the team's top two receivers (D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel), but it's a further boost to Teddy Bridgewater's stock as he has one of the top receiving corps in the league. Anderson is a good all-around receiver but he thrives in the deep passing game which is not something that Bridgewater utilizes regularly. Robby Anderson and Samuel's fantasy stock are both down with this signing. Sam Darnold's stock is also down since it looked for a moment that Anderson might return to the Jets.
NYJ WR Robby Anderson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Buffalo
Robby Anderson only had two catches for 32 yards last Sunday, but did score his fifth touchdown of the season. Despite the low output last week, Anderson had a better second half of the season.
Anderson has a tough matchup this week against the Bills who are 9th in aFPA to wide receivers. In the first meeting against Buffalo this season, he had three receptions for 23 yards. We don't expect huge numbers for Week 17. If you need a receiver, he ranks a low-end WR3 for Sunday.
