Heading into Week 6 fantasy football, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is a must-start against the Indianapolis Colts.

Finally, after weeks of being a non-factor on offense for the New York Jets, wide receiver Robby Anderson delivered a huge game in Week 5 action. Against the Denver Broncos, Anderson totaled 123 receiving yards, three receptions, and two touchdowns. Those that started him last week in fantasy football undoubtedly enjoyed his total points for taking such a huge risk.

This time around, things are looking great for Anderson to have another big game due to the poor pass defense of the Indianapolis Colts. Not only is this another winnable game for the Jets, but Anderson should also be able to have another impactful game when it comes to his ability to make big plays when being thrown to deep.

Quarterback Sam Darnold has made Quincy Enunwa his preferred go-to target and while he’ll likely get the most reps in this Week 6 matchup, expect to see Anderson be used on those special deep passing plays. It’s easy to see him being thrown to deep when Darnold executes play-action plays to maximize Anderson’s ability to contribute huge yardage plays.

Ideally, fantasy football owners should start Anderson this week. At this point in time during the regular season, Anderson is worth starting as either a WR2 or at the very least, in the FLEX position. Depending on how offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates uses Anderson as the season progresses, he could very well end up being a WR1 option, much like he was last year in fantasy football.

Start Anderson this week and enjoy everything he brings to the table. Not only should he be able to score at least a touchdown or two, but there is a strong possibility he replicates what he did last week or even surpasses it.

The Jets will also be honoring their Super Bowl III championship roster in today’s game with special ceremonies as players will easily be ready to play their hearts out of respect. Expect to see Anderson deliver big time against the Colts.
