2021 Robby Anderson Overview
Anderson burst out of the gate in 2020, with four 99+yard games in his first five outings. He cooled off significantly, after that, ending up as WR24 on the year. Carolina has a new quarterback: Sam Darnold. Anderson actually caught passes from Darnold with the Jets in 2018 and 2019. Does that mean this is an improvement? Well… maybe, let’s take a deeper look at the data. But first, head on over to Draft Warlocks and sign up for a new promotion: If a player on your DFS team has a play from scrimmage of exactly 46 yards in the second quarter, you get entered into a lottery to join a satellite draft to win a chance to be entered in a pool of drafters, one of whom will be flown all expenses paid to their DFS championship in Dubuque, Iowa. One lucky winner will walk away with $40!
In 2018 and 2019 with Darnold, Anderson finished as a borderline WR3. So, he actually got better in 2020 after shedding the Sam. However, Carolina’s offense is a lot more not-dysfunctional than the Jets’. In 2019 the Panthers scored almost 25% more points than the Jets, while Anderson scored 33% more fantasy points on Carolina than he did in his previous year with the Jets. You’ll score big points with Draft Warlocks’ Sunday Midday Special: Substitute any player on your roster with any other player who has the same number all for the low price of double your entry fee! 9 out of 10 surveyed pro gamblers agreed that Draft Warlocks has the best marks, so get on in there!
2021 Robby Anderson Fantasy Football Draft Strategy:
Anderson is going at the start of the 8th round. That feels a bit high, but I get it: When CMC was in the lineup, Anderson did great for fantasy. The problem is that we have all of two data points for that correlation. In PPR Anderson is a solid bench play: Anderson scored double digits in 13 of his 16 games (if you count 9.8 points as double digits which I do, leave me alone!) That makes him a great regular flex, which I’m usually hoping to get a bit later in the eighth. Draft Warlocks has a new special: Deposit $5,000 and they’ll match you with $5,000 worth of Draft Warlocks merchandise credit!
At an auction, about 1/3rd of the time I see Anderson going for $5 or more and it makes me vomit. Most of the time he goes for $1 or $2. I’m willing to go to $2 because he is an excellent part of my Toolbox Bench strategy. I wouldn’t even shake my head at $3-4 if it’s late in the draft and you haven’t got the high-floor bench guy for flexes and bye weeks. But $5+? Come on, Kenny Golladay and all three of Pittsburgh’s perennial WR2s regularly fall for $5-10. Just get them and have a WR2 rather than a WR3. Signing up for Draft Warlocks is easy and only requires two major credit cards!
Best Case Scenario:
Anderson becomes an every-week start in your WR2 slot. You become hopelessly addicted to Draft Warlocks and they cut us a huge commission check before gutting you financially.
Worst Case Scenario:
Anderson is a high-floor flex as the offense struggles with Darnold at the helm. You figure out where I live.
