Heading into Week 14 Fantasy Football, wide receiver Robby Anderson should thrive this week thanks to a familiar face under center.

Make no mistake about it, wide receiver Robby Anderson is well on his way to being a quality player for the New York Jets. Anderson works hard and has developed nicely considering just how bad the overall offense of the Jets has been. Should fantasy football owners consider starting him this week?

If you’re risky and want to take the chance, Anderson is easily a FLEX option this week. Now that the Jets have finally benched quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for the remainder of the season, it now gives Bryce Petty full control to push the envelope.

Due to how well both Petty and Anderson have done together through preseason action and even last week against the Indianapolis Colts, expect to see Anderson thrive against the San Francisco 49ers. The Jets offense has been pretty bad as of late but nothing provides a bigger spark than a young quarterback with solid arm strength and his trusty wide receiver he’s been practicing with all season long.

While Anderson isn’t anywhere near a WR1 or WR2 option, he should easily be able to score a touchdown or two against the abysmal defense of the 49ers. Petty has the timing down with Anderson well and should hook up with him early and often on Sunday.

Fantasy football owners should only consider Anderson in the FLEX role and again, only if they feel risky or have other lackluster options. If the Jets are going to beat the 49ers on the road, it’ll come down to how well Petty can execute. Expect to see a heavy pass-oriented attack since the Jets want to see what they ultimately have in Petty for the future.

Overall, Anderson is indeed worth starting this week. He’s a star on the rise and at the rate, he’s going, will be a household name over time. Once he gets a bit more experience under his belt and continues his progression with Petty, these two might make some serious noise in the years to come.
