Heading into Week 7 fantasy football, wide receiver Robby Anderson of the New York Jets might be worth starting as a FLEX option if you’re feeling risky and have no other alternatives.

When it comes to fantasy football, many will argue that it takes a good amount of football knowledge, skill, and well, some luck here and there. The truth of the matter is, sometimes fantasy owners have to take a risk and go with their gut every once in a while. Such is the case in Week 7 fantasy football and the decision whether wide receiver Robby Anderson of the New York Jets is worth starting.

Anderson is coming off a decent week as against the New England Patriots, he totaled 76 receiving yards, four receptions, but failed to score a touchdown. As a matter of fact, he hasn’t scored a touchdown in three straight games.

Week 7 brings Anderson and his Jets a road game against the Miami Dolphins. They have a pretty tough pass defense but the best part about Anderson is his ability to make a big play out of nowhere. His speed gives him a big advantage to be a deep receiving threat for the Jets and will likely be a method of attack they’ll use on offense.

If the Jets want to have any success at beating the Dolphins on Sunday, it’ll be by establishing the run to help set up the passing game, especially some play-action plays to catch the Dolphins defense off guard. It won’t be easy but the Jets are a gritty bunch and well, Anderson has the potential to finally break his scoreless streak.

Fantasy football owners should consider him as a risky FLEX option this week since all eyes will more than likely be on his partner in crime, wide receiver Jermaine Kearse. It’ll give Anderson several opportunities to burn the defense of the Dolphins deep and hopefully, score a touchdown or two thanks to mismatches. Again, it’s a huge risk since there is also a chance he won’t do much of anything but my gut tells me he’s going to get a score or two in this Week 7 matchup.

Overall, Anderson is at least worth starting as a FLEX option but nothing else. He can’t be trusted as anything higher than FLEX for this week.
