Wide receiver Robby Anderson looks to have a strong year and step up at a time when the New York Jets need it.
When the New York Jets came into this season they expected to have Quincy Enunwa be their top wide receiver. Unfortunately, Enunwa suffered a severe neck injury as it is now up to Robby Anderson to be the next man up.
Anderson is entering his second season and has the potential to be that type of player who can surprise many and be a key playmaker on offense. It won’t be easy but expectations are high for Anderson to rise to the challenge and led the youth movement at wide receiver.
From watching how he plays, Anderson is very impressive when it comes to his speed and overall toughness after making the catch. Once the football is in his hands, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep those chains moving or break out to make a big play. It’s all about the little things when it comes to Anderson as he could very well deliver his best season yet since he’s the most talented and experienced of the group.

In his rookie season, Anderson had 42 receptions, 587 total yards, and two touchdowns in 16 games played.
Considering this was with mediocre play at quarterback, speaks volumes on everything he brings to the table.
Hopefully, no matter who ends up as starting quarterback in 2017, Anderson can be that clutch receiving option that makes life a little easier from under center.
Overall, Anderson should make the most of his opportunity to move up on the depth chart and bring the same kind of impact many expected out of Enunwa. It won’t be easy but the potential is there. All he has to do is continue his preparation and solid play in training camp and preseason action. It’s the kind of momentum that can bring a good start to a season that many have already written off.
