Robby Anderson had a sort of break-out season in 2017. It garnered him a little bit of hype, and I felt that 2018 might have been his year to explode. I was wrong.
Anderson began the 2018-19 season very slowly, only catching one pass. Albeit that pass was a 41-yard TD, but still, not the best. He followed performance with three straight weeks of very low production. He didn’t reach four fantasy points scored in any week. He then had a massive week five, and the future looked a little brighter. Nope, he went back to his very minimal production before finally producing good numbers in the last three games of the season.
I say all that to say this: Anderson has proven to be very inconsistent, but with an improved Sam Darnold, LeVeon Bell in the backfield, and Jamison Crowder on the field with him, Robby may have room to improve this year.
I expect defenses to key-in on Bell, providing more opportunities for Anderson elsewhere. With a year and an entire offseason to mesh with Darnold, I could see Anderson helping the Jets out immensely this year. I feel that he’ll produce enough this year, that he will he considered in the top six rounds next year. He must find his consistency, and it seems as if we began to see that at the end of last season.
Anderson has a current ADP of 8.02 according to Fantasy Football Calculator. I would feel comfortable taking him there over most other options. He’s being drafted ahead of players such as Courtland Sutton, Marquise Goodwin, and John Brown. I would draft Christian Kirk, Marvin Jones, and Mike Williams ahead of Anderson.
