Heading into Week 3 fantasy football, it’s worth starting New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson as he is set to face the Cleveland Browns defense.
It’s no secret that rookie quarterback Sam Darnold already has his favorite receiving target on the New York Jets. Darnold has gone to wide receiver Quincy Enunwa more than any other player on offense but things are about to change. Heading into a Week 3 Thursday Night Football matchup against the Cleveland Browns, it’ll be Robby Anderson‘s time to shine when it comes to his fantasy football value.
Anderson scored his first touchdown of the season in Week 1 but didn’t do much of anything in a Week 2 loss to the Miami Dolphins. In that game, Anderson only totaled 27 receiving yards on three receptions with zero touchdowns.
Tonight, however, expect to see Anderson return to form and be a big part of the Jets offensive gameplan. With his speed and ability to take the top off of opposing defenses, this will be the game that Anderson proves why he’s a top receiver in the league and in fantasy football.

Fantasy football owners would be wise to start Anderson either as a WR2 or a FLEX option depending on how the rest of your lineup is shaping up. Ideally, Anderson should put up a 100+ receiving yard game and score a touchdown or two.
All eyes will be on Enunwa since he’s been pretty consistent the first two weeks of the season which likely means he’ll be double teamed a lot more. This is where Anderson will do what he does best and provide some big plays, especially on deep passes to take it to the house.
Make sure to start Anderson this week and don’t even think twice about it. He has breakout game written all over him as the Jets will make sure to incorporate him more than they have the past few weeks to avoid a trap game. The last thing they want to do is not have a gameplan around Anderson, one of their best offensive playmakers, in a game against a team that hasn’t won in years.
