As the New York Jets prepare for their Week 12 matchup against the Carolina Panthers, wide receiver Robby Anderson is one of the few players worth starting in fantasy football.
When it comes to the offense of the New York Jets, it’s inconsistent, to say the least. Very few players are worth starting when it comes to their fantasy football value but one of which is starting to heat up at just the right time for the Jets.
Wide receiver Robby Anderson not only has an impressive touchdown streak but is the top threat on offense for the Jets. He’s scored at least one touchdown in each of the last four games and continues to prove he’s a force to reckon with.
So far this season, Anderson has totaled 568 receiving yards, 35 receptions, and five touchdowns. He’s so good, he’s even surpassed veteran wide receiver Jermaine Kearse as the top receiving option on offense as he’s got a good thing going with quarterback Josh McCown.

Fantasy football owners who are in need of a quality FLEX option in Week 12, would be wise to give that slot to Anderson since he’ll be facing the Carolina Panthers. They have a tough defense but at the end of the day, if the Jets want to keep their playoff hopes alive, it’ll be by putting their best players in a position to succeed.
Besides the ground game that will most likely be a heavy emphasis on Sunday, expect to see Anderson not only continue his touchdown streak but get a plethora of passes coming his way. The Jets will need to feed him the rock if they’re to have a shot at leaving this Week 12 home game victorious.
START OR SIT?: Fantasy Pros Start or Sit Assistant Tool
Start Anderson but only as a FLEX option as he’s not near WR2 status but will more than likely continue to raise his fantasy football value during the final six games of the regular season for the Jets.
