Heading into Week 5 fantasy football, it’s best to sit New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson against the Denver Broncos.

It’s five weeks into the regular season and New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson has just 108 receiving yards, eight receptions, and one touchdown. Needless to say, this season so far hasn’t been good for Anderson as it’s due to several factors. At this rate, it’s best to sit Anderson heading into Week 5 fantasy football action against the Denver Broncos.

In the grand scheme of things, Anderson has been phased out in the offensive playbook of the Jets. Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold has made Quincy Enunwa his favorite target to throw to and has yet to utilize Anderson on offense. It’s no secret that Anderson has great speed and is a legitimate downfield threat but offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates hasn’t incorporated him as much as he should.

Could things dramatically change this week? Unfortunately, it’s not likely to happen so soon. Bates is pretty set on his ways as the Jets offense over the past few weeks has been terrible. It’s too predictable and instead of shaking things up and going back to the fundamentals of the West Coast offense, he’s resorting to trick plays in key situation that aren’t fooling anyone.

Sit Anderson this week as he’s not going to magically turn into the player he was last season at this point of the year. At any rate, Anderson will likely continue on his decline and show spurts here and there that he can be a playmaker on offense but nowhere near being relevant in fantasy football.

For now, he won’t do much of anything against the Broncos. Anderson has been dropped in the majority of fantasy leagues for good reason as his stats so far this season have earned him a consistent place in waiver wires.

It’s a shame since Anderson was coming off an incredible season last year and is now on the outside looking in. Expect to see Anderson continue to be a non-factor in this Week 5 matchup against the Broncos as he’s not worth starting in any capacity on your fantasy team.
