Wide Receiver Outlook Week 2

You can tell by his ranking that I’m not quite sold on Robby Anderson (WR39) as a reliable fantasy play quite yet. A quick glimpse at NFL Redzone this past Sunday should be all you need to realize that Anderson has clearly seen his surrounding cast elevated in his move from New York to Carolina.

With that said, Anderson still remains the boom-or-bust player that we grew to know with Gang Green. His six reception, 115 yard, 25.5 fantasy point performance is certainly eye-catching on the surface. However, eliminate a 75-yard touchdown where the defender slipped, and Anderson finishes the day with just 40 yards receiving.

Still, Anderson has plenty going his way, for starters, he’s always a threat to take it to the house. Second, he saw a solid six targets come his way in Week 1. Finally, he out-snapped fellow Panthers wideout Curtis Samuel (55 to 50) on the day. Unfortunately, a matchup with Tampa Bay in Week 2 limits his ceiling. Since Week 14 of last year, the Bucs have surrendered just two receiving touchdowns to wide receivers.

Mike Evans (WR13) caught just one pass in Week 1. Thankfully for fantasy owners that lone reception equated to a touchdown. I wouldn’t look too much into Tampa’s struggles from this past Sunday, as they were mostly mental miscues that can be fixed. As long as Evans is healthy, he remains a rock-solid WR2. Evans averaged 15.35 fantasy points vs. Carolina a season ago and that was when top cornerback, James Bradberry, was still with the Panthers.
