10. Robby Anderson (NYJ)
The New York Jets do not have much to look forward to this season, but Robby Anderson could provide a glimmer of hope in an otherwise dark season in New York. Most casual football fans don’t know who Anderson is, but every fantasy football player should.
Anderson isn’t going to come out and catch 100 balls and go for 1,500 yards, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be productive on a bad offense.
Who is the quarterback for the Jets again? Bryce Petty? Josh McCown? Christian Hackenberg? To be honest, it doesn’t matter a ton for Anderson’s fantasy value.
With the season ending injury to Quincy Enunwa early in training camp, Anderson became the Jets’ top target. When is the last time you heard of a number one receiver on any team sliding in fantasy football drafts to almost the last round?
Even the Browns wide receivers get the respect of middle-round picks and yet Anderson is forgotten.
The great thing about fantasy football is that the score of the actual game doesn’t matter. The Jets are going to get blown out a lot. This means they are going to be forced to throw early and often in games to try to come back from large deficits.
Anderson yards and touchdowns may not mean much in the outcome of the real games, but they do help determine the outcome of your fantasy football games.
Like I said, a top target on a team that throws a lot shouldn’t be forgotten, even if the team isn’t winning games.
