Through the first six weeks of the 2020 NFL season, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Robby Anderson ranks second in the NFL in receiving yards behind only DeAndre Hopkins. Raise your hand if you saw that coming, and for those of you who have your hands raised, stop lying to yourselves.
Anderson was an intriguing free agent available at a reasonable price point this offseason after spending the first four years of his NFL career wallowing through the barren wasteland that is the New York Jets offense. He profiled as someone who could reliably challenge defenses vertically and a player who could put up some big-time numbers with more accurate opportunities downfield. On top of that, Anderson was also adding to his repertoire in recent years, particularly in the intermediate part of the field.
