The Carolina Panthers added another piece to their offense yesterday with their signing of former New York Jet wide receiver Robby Anderson. Since 2017 Anderson has been one of the top playmakers on the Jets, scoring 18 touchdowns and catching 165 passes. The Jets will need to upgrade at the wide receiver position on draft day. New York’s top target in the passing game as of right now will be Jamison Crowder. Crowder is a quarterback friendly receiver who caught 78 balls for the Jets last season. He will remain a reliable fantasy option in 2020.
The Panthers, who are revamping their offense, get a player in Robby Anderson who is super talented but I’m not sure if he is the right fit for new Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Anderson makes his money running down the field and hitting big pays. Last season with the Jets Anderson had 13 receptions over 20 yards and 2 receptions of over 40 yards. Bridgewater is not the type of quarterback that throws the football 20 yards down the field, Bridgwater averages a mere 7 yards per attempt for his career. Anderson will have to get yards after the catch to make a play down the field.
