In 2016, the New York Jets signed rookie free agent, Robby Anderson out of Temple University. During his two years as a wide receiver for Temple, Anderson put up solid numbers but never eclipsed 1,000 yards or ten touchdowns in a season. The Jets took a chance, signing the speedy Anderson, seeing potential in him as a deep threat in the passing game. In his rookie season, he averaged 14.0 yards per catch for 587 yards. Anderson has continued to improve and is now a weekly threat on the Jets offense. He has far exceeded expectations, especially in 2017.
This season, Robby Anderson started out slow, racking up only 50 yards total through his first two games. Since then, he has been on fire. He broke out of his early season slump with a 69 touchdown catch against Miami. Anderson has 568 yards through ten games in 2017. He has also scored a touchdown in each of his last four games. Anderson has found the end zone against the Dolphins, Falcons, Bills, and Buccaneers during his streak. His yards per catch average has improved to 16.2, cementing him as a dangerous deep threat against any defense.
Robby Anderson is having a breakout season and on the brink of going from undrafted to NFL star. He will attempt to keep his impressive touchdown streak alive on November 26 when the Jets take on the Panthers. Anderson and the Jets will be coming off a bye week so don’t be surprised to see him rested and as explosive as ever.
