Heading into Week 4 fantasy football, the only points New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson are concerned with are those it takes to win.

As Robby Anderson caught Josh McCown’s 69-yard pass in stride for the first touchdown of the game last week, in that moment, the possibilities and anticipation that accompanied it for the first time made a season appear–promising. For fantasy football owners, it was a big sign that he finally woke up.

The strange thing about that reception was I then realized I couldn’t readily recall without a Google search the last Jets receiver that not only had multiple successful 1,000-yard seasons but were also exciting to watch. Maybe the incomparable Keyshawn Johnson, Laveranues Coles or old dependable Jerricho Cotchery.

Last year, Brandon Marshall and Quincy Enunwa were the top faces for the Jets receiving corp. Behind the two, Anderson snatched 587 receiving yards. Now, after a 95-yard Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins, he’s officially in the lion’s den as the only things able to save him are his hands, speed and ability to create separation.

The McCown to Anderson touchdown was a career-long reception as well as the Jets standout play from Week 3. But Week 4 brings its own expectations as they are greater, the fire is hotter and the guy who thinks he can do the job better is just around the corner.

Production is the name of the game as Anderson’s focus is on greatness and becoming a productive wide receiver. For fantasy football owners, this bodes well in his Week 4 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fact, the Jets need more yards, touchdowns, and production. Points are important in winning fantasy and real-time so starting Anderson as a FLEX option is worth it this week. He will be seeing a lot of passes come his way to continue his momentum from last week. Expect to also see him score at least a touchdown or two in this Week 4 matchup.
