Heading into Week 4 fantasy football, it’s best to sit New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Six receptions. 90 receiving yards. One touchdown. Negative nine rushing yards. These are the current stats for New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson so far this season. Needless to say, he’s been a huge disappointment to fantasy football owners that were hoping he’d continue the momentum he had from last year.

So far, quarterback Sam Darnold has relied mostly on wide receiver Quincy Enunwa as his go-to target on offense. Whether it’s Anderson not living up to expectations or the fact that he’s now being phased out on plays due to the extra attention he’s getting, it’s not looking good for his fantasy football value heading into Week 4.

Don’t expect Anderson to do much of anything this week as it’s best to sit him in fantasy football lineups. The truth of the matter is, the Jets will likely go back to what has worked for them in their big Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions and commit to establishing the run.

When Darnold is executing passing plays instead of handing it off, odds are he’ll be looking in Enunwa’s direction. Even wide receiver Jermaine Kearse is getting more reps as Anderson is slowly but surely moving down on the Jets depth chart.

Believe it or not, some fantasy football owners have already dropped Anderson completely from their lineups since things won’t dramatically change, especially against a top-notch defense like the Jaguars. If you have better waiver wire wide receivers that are still available and featured more on offense, dropping Anderson for them makes a lot more sense than keeping him around.

Of course, there is a chance that Anderson will heat up as the season progresses but for now, he’s a safe sit against the Jaguars in Week 4 action. At the rate he’s going, he might end up seeing lesser time on the field and more time on the sideline if another receiver steps up and proves they can have more of an impact for the Jets.
