The New York Jets are currently 4-6 on the year but this team does have a bright spot in 2nd year Wide Receiver Robby Anderson. Anderson has been the best pass catcher out of the Big Apple in 2017 and that goes for either team (Jets or Giants). With Odell Beckham sidelined for the rest of the season with a fractured ankle Robby Anderson has quietly solidified himself as the top receiving act in town and this guy is very entertaining to watch. With his 4.34 40 yard dash time the former Temple Owl is extremely explosive and coaches say he plays faster than that test time. Those natural athletic abilities allow Anderson to slip past defenders and his speed creates natural mismatches. Anderson also has a pretty interesting backstory after going undrafted in 2016 the Jets signed him as a project player. What that essentially means is New York saw potential in 24 year old and thought he could be a good player with the right development. Now just a season later Robby Anderson has been a pleasant surprise for the Jets and this team would be in trouble without him. After losing Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker this past off-season fans in NYC were concerned with the lack of talent at the receiver position. Anderson stepped up during that vacancy and that says a lot about the young wide outs’ capability to perform under pressure. The National Football League is easily one of the most competitive sports in the world and Anderson is raising the bar. The future is certainly bright for this up and coming star and the only thing he really has to do is add a little bit of weight to his frame. Robby Anderson is around 190 pounds if he can put on 10 pounds of muscle or so look out because this kid is going to be a very special player.
