Robby Anderson’s production

After a sensational start to life with the Carolina Panthers, Robby Anderson‘s production has now dipped to a level that is a moderate cause for concern. This was to be expected with more focus from opposing schemes on defense and if this is a trend that continues moving forward it might see D.J. Moore become the team’s No. 1 option once again.

In truth, it doesn’t really matter who is coming up with the goods in the passing game. The Panthers have so many good options it’s a case of whatever player has the hot hand and is getting more space to work in during any given game.

Anderson hasn’t recorded a touchdown since Week 1 and the last time he secured more than 100 yards receiving was in Week 5 at the Atlanta Falcons. He is still getting plenty of targets and putting up some nice yardage, but not to the extent we saw earlier this season.

It was always going to be difficult for the former Temple star to keep this level of performance going for the entire season. There is only one football to go around and plenty of playmakers who demand their share of targets.

However, if the coaching staff doesn’t want this to become even more of a concern they need to come up with solutions to get Anderson more open in space for him to do what he does best.
