Heading into Week 9 fantasy football, it’s best to sit New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson against the Miami Dolphins.

Remember, when it comes to fantasy football, it is never a good idea to start a wide receiver coming off an injury. Such is the case for New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson. Not only did he miss last week’s game against the Chicago Bears due to an ankle injury, but he’s been having an off year so far.

Anderson has only totaled 314 receiving yards, 17 receptions, and just three touchdowns so far this season. Quarterback Sam Darnold has quickly formed a connection with wide receiver Quincy Enunwa which, for half of the season, made Anderson the odd man out.

Fantasy football owners would be wise to sit Anderson this week as he’s officially listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s road game against the Miami Dolphins. As per the Media Relations Department of the Jets, head coach Todd Bowles will make Anderson’s status for today’s matchup a game-time decision.

In the grand scheme of things, it’s best to sit Anderson this week and not even think twice about it. The Jets offense is a hot mess and if last week’s game was any indication, Anderson will likely not be much of a factor in this AFC East rivalry matchup.

This Jets vs. Dolphins game will likely be a low-scoring affair featuring two teams that have a lot of negatives and not many positive to speak about.

Until the Jets upgrade their offensive line and add more playmakers, they’ll always be on the outside looking in. At the rate the Jets offense is going, fantasy football owners won’t even waste their time searching for predictions on anyone wearing that uniform over the next few weeks.

The Jets will likely leave this game with another loss and their season outlook continuing to look bleak. There is literally not much fantasy football value involving anyone on this team this season and especially heading into this game.
