Pro Football Focus recently released their list of the biggest deep threats of the NFL heading into the upcoming season. New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson earned an honorable mention.
Despite his offseason distractions, no one can ever knock Robby Anderson‘s natural abilities that led him to be the top receiving option on the New York Jets. When wide receiver Quincy Enunwa suffered a season-ending neck injury last year, Anderson stepped up when it was needed and led the Jets offense in numerous categories.
Pro Football Focus recently released their list of who they feel will be some of the biggest deep receiving threats for the upcoming season. Anderson earned an honorable mention in that article written by Michael Renner, joining the likes of Julio Jones, T.Y. Hilton, and Brandin Cooks.
Anderson is coming off his best season yet of his young career. In 2017, Anderson totaled 941 receiving yards, 63 receptions, and seven touchdowns. His longest reception was a 69-yard touchdown bomb which was just one of many deep passes he hauled in over the past two years of being in the NFL.

If Anderson can stay on the right path, he will undoubtedly be not only the top receiver on the Jets but likely in the league. Especially if there is a quarterback change in which Josh McCown passes the torch to someone younger and likely better in Teddy Bridgewater or Sam Darnold at some point during the regular season.
It’s expected that Anderson will likely get hit with some kind of suspension by the league due to their personal conduct policy but all of that is still under review. In the event he does get suspended, it will likely be for a game or two tops.
Either way, Anderson is ready to put all that in the past and focus on his potentially bright future. Since his offseason incident, he’s been vocal that he’s a changed man and wants to put all his efforts into being the best wide receiver he can be. It’s the right mentality to have as he prepares for his third season with the Jets and is easily their best receiving option on offense.
