2021 Season Outlooks

Robby Anderson wasn't viewed as much more than an afterthought heading into 2020, but he became one of the better late-round values in all of Fantasy. That won't happen again this summer as Anderson posted career-highs in targets, catches and yards while finishing 10th among receivers in targets per game and 29th in PPR points per game. He is definitely a candidate to regress in those areas, but it might not be by much. Landing old pal Sam Darnold as his new QB is a plus. Treat Anderson as a No. 3 receiver who still offers some good value as a mid-round pick this season.
Surprisingly, Anderson out-produced DJ Moore in 2020. He filled a short-range role in an up-and-coming offense led by HC Matt Rhule and OC Joe Brady. The result was a career-best fantasy finish (WR20).2021 should find him in a similar role. And this time, he’ll catch passes from someone he’s familiar with: Sam Darnold. While Darnold’s accuracy remains a weakness, volume should propel Anderson to another low-end WR2/WR3 finish. He’s still a value selection with an ADP in Round 8.  
Anderson is entering his second season with the Panthers after a successful 2020 campaign in which he handled a career-high 8.5 targets per game (26% share) and finished as fantasy's No. 19-scoring WR. Anderson's role was much different than it was with the Jets, as he was used less as a vertical weapon (9.4 aDOT compared to 14.8 with Jets), which led to career-high showings in targets, receptions and receiving yards. The only problem area for Anderson was scoring TDs, as he found pay dirt only three times (his fewest since 2016). The 28-year-old is ticketed for a similar role in 2021 and very well could benefit from Sam Darnold's arrival, Curtis Samuel's departure and some regression to the mean in the TD department. Anderson is a fine WR3 target.
Robby Anderson surprised many in 2020 with career-high numbers in targets (137), receptions (95), and receiving yards (1,097). He'll be rejoined with former teammate, Sam Darnold in 2021 as he looks to repeat his breakout campaign. The former Jets duo hooked up for 11 touchdowns from 2018-2019 which also included a Pro Bowl invite for the young receiver. Anderson should again be a prominent piece of the Panthers offense in 2021, especially with Curtis Samuel moving on to Washington via free agency. Like his teammate, D.J. Moore, Anderson struggled to be a consistent scorer finishing with only three touchdowns last season. Perhaps a reunion with Darnold will make a difference in the red zone? In order to climb into the next tier in fantasy terms, Anderson will need to become a more consistent scorer.
