Robby Anderson – Carolina Panthers WR

There were a few eyebrows raised in the offseason when the Carolina Panthers signed Robby Anderson to a two-year, $20 million deal that included an $8 million signing bonus and $12 million guaranteed. However, through the first half of the season, the wide receiver is proving to be well-worth this sort of financial commitment.

Anderson has quickly emerged as the best wideout option on the Panthers despite the presence of D.J. Moore on the opposite side of the field. His preference for linking up once again with Matt Rhule is something that has propelled his game to a completely different level and this has brought some encouraging numbers that are set to smash his career-highs.

Removing himself from the dismal New York Jets has been the making of Anderson. The player has 51 receptions from 63 targets, 688 receiving yards, and one touchdown this season, which also includes 293 yards after the catch and just two drops.

Not only is Anderson the prominent deep threat everyone expected. But his ability to get open quickly with exceptional route-running is something seldom seen from the player during his time at MetLife Stadium.

His special relationship with Rhule smoothed the wideout’s transition into a different environment. And the Panthers can say with great confidence that they now possess one of the NFL’s most devastating wide receiver trios in Anderson, Moore, and Curtis Samuel.
