Heading into Week 3 fantasy football, wide receiver Robby Anderson of the New York Jets is a safe sit as he won’t do much of anything against the Miami Dolphins.

When it comes to the New York Jets, their offense has gotten better but doesn’t exactly instill fear into opposing defenses. They have a veteran quarterback in Josh McCown who performed well last week against the Oakland Raiders but lacks the arm strength to hit receivers in stride. For wide receiver Robby Anderson and his fantasy football value in Week 3, it leaves much to be desired.

With Jermaine Kearse being the No. 1 targeted wide receiver on offense, this has put Anderson in a weird place. Yes, he’s talented but has a long way to go before being on the level of Kearse who not only comes through in the clutch but has much more experience when it comes to making big plays.

Heading into Week 3 action, Anderson is set to go up against the defense of the Miami Dolphins. They tend to have very good pass protection which doesn’t bode well for someone like Anderson who has yet to score a touchdown this season or have a big play for more than 20 yards.

Fantasy football owners shouldn’t hesitate when it comes to the decision of starting or sitting Anderson as it’s a no-brainer. Sit him and don’t even think twice about it.

If you have a possibility to start anyone on the Jets, the only real options would be Kearse and their top two running backs in Matt Forte and Bilal Powell.

Again, that’s only if you’re looking for a FLEX option this week as not a single member of the Jets is worth anything more than that in fantasy. Sit Anderson and find any other player on the waiver wire because the trend will continue of him not being much of a factor on the Jets offense.
