2016 Week 17 vs BUF (7 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
The rookie wide receiver was arguably the most surprising member of the team this season. Anderson finished his rookie season by running good routes, making tough catches, and getting separation at the line of scrimmage. Anderson had a long gain of 17 yards on a deep crossing route for a New York first down.
2016 Week 16 vs NE (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Robby Anderson was shut-out, despite receiving three targets and functioning as the passing attack's top option. Anderson was targeted on Petty's interception as communication broke down between the two young players.
2016 Week 15 vs MIA (6 / 4 / 80 / 1 rec)
Another week, another big effort from Robby Anderson. On the game's first possession, Petty and Anderson hooked up for a 40-yard touchdown on a deep crossing route. Recognizing man coverage without safety help over the top, Petty audited into the pass play and Anderson won at the line of scrimmage, allowing him to run free on the route. Petty hit him in stride and Anderson made the scoring play happen after the catch. In the fourth quarter, Petty found Anderson for a 28-yard gain on a deep sideline route. Petty took a big hit from Wake and Suh, but somehow completed the pass. Outside of these two big pass plays, Anderson was targeted on short-to-intermediate routes, but failed to rip off additional big gains.
2016 Week 14 vs SF (11 / 6 / 99 / 0 rec, 2 / 12 / 0 rush)
Robby Anderson continued his impressive rookie season by making two big plays. In the fourth quarter, Petty found Anderson on go-route for a 40-yard gain. San Francisco was in two-deep coverage--and the route timing and execution by both players was impressive. Petty put the ball high and in front of the deep safety. Anderson went up and plucked the ball out of the air before taking a hit. In overtime, Petty found Anderson on a deep cross for a 26-yard gain. Petty rolled out of the pocket, to his left, set his feet and delivered a strong throw to an in-breaking Anderson before taking a hit. Anderson won inside position and made a tough grab over the middle to put New York in field goal range. Two plays later, Powell was run-in the game winning score.
2016 Week 13 vs IND (12 / 4 / 61 / 1 rec)
Anderson received a team-high 12 targets, but struggled with drops and his timing with Petty was off for the majority of the game. In the first half, with Fitzpatrick under center, Anderson dropped two long gains that would have given this offense a much needed spark. With Petty under center, Anderson was the first read on most pass plays. Petty's first few pass attempts were off-the-mark, but these two hooked up for a 40-yard touchdown on a deep post route. Matched up against Darius Butler, Anderson and Butler ran stride for stride, but Anderson did a nice job adjusting to Petty's deep throw to complete the pass play and ran into the end zone. Granted, Butler fell down when attempting to make a play on the ball, but give Anderson credit for finishing the scoring play. If the touchdown pass is removed from his state line, Anderson gained just 21 yards on 11 targets. Needless to say, Petty and Anderson have to spend more time together during the practice week.
2016 Week 12 vs NE (2 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
It was a tough afternoon for Robby Anderson, a rookie receiver that has flashed this season. In the second quarter, Fitzpatrick found Anderson on a deep cross for a 25-yard catch and run, but Butler punched the ball out of his hands and New England recovered. This turnover led a seven-play, 50 yard touchdown drive by New England.
2016 Week 10 vs LA (6 / 3 / 69 / 0 rec)
It's no surprise that Anderson was New York's leading receiver with Petty under center. Anderson and Petty, two players that started the season with the second team offense, were in-sync for most the game. In the first quarter, Anderson and Petty hooked up for the first completion of the game, a nine-yard gain on a comeback route where Anderson showed impressive arm extension and strong hands at the catch point. Petty came back to Anderson on a deep fade route for a 52-yard gain in the first quarter. Operating against one-on-one man coverage, Anderson showed some initial quickness to get away from the defender and used some hand checking to keep the defender off his body. Credit Petty for throwing a great deep ball, but Anderson made the play happen by running a great route and by keeping the defender at bay.
2016 Week 9 vs MIA (6 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
Robby Anderson is getting better each week. The Temple product is working inside and outside, running short, intermediate, and deep routes against man and zone coverage. Anderson showed that he could beat man coverage this week, making several big plays against Miami's secondary. Matched up against Tony Lippett early in the fourth quarter, Anderson ran a go-route deep down the right sideline, elevated over Lippett and hauled in a 27-yard gain. After completing the catch and falling to the ground, Anderson got up and sprinted into the end zone. Upon review, it was determined that Anderson was touched, negating the touchdown. Three plays later, Fitzpatrick was intercepted in the end zone. Nevertheless, this young receiver is playing with a lot of confidence.
2016 Week 8 vs CLE (6 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)
Despite only catching three passes, Robby Anderson had a major impact on this game. All three of Anderson's receptions occurred in the second half, but two of the three came on key third down plays. On a 3rd-and-12 play from NYJ's 14-yard line, Fitzpatrick and Anderson hooked up for a 16 yard gain deep down the left sideline. Anderson showed excellent body control and poise to haul in an errant pass for a first down gain. Four plays later, Fitzpatrick came back to Anderson on third down, finding him in the middle of the field for a 9-yard gain. New York opted to go for it on 4th-and-1 and Forte cashed in for a 4-yard touchdown run. For a rookie, Anderson impressed and made two big plays that ultimately contributed to the outcome of this game.
2016 Week 7 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 41 / 0 rec, 1 / 30 / 0 rush)
It took a few weeks, but Robby Anderson finally looked comfortable in this offense. Starting in three wide receivers sets, New York's game plan involved getting Anderson involved as a runner and as a receiver. During Fitzpatrick's first scoring drive, Chan Gailey called an end round that Anderson took for 30 yards down the left sideline. Credit Fitzpatrick has selling the play fake, but once he got outside, Anderson showed some burst and speed in the open field. Matt Forte scored on a screen pass after Anderson's 30-yard rumble. As a receiver, Anderson took advantage of deep zone coverage by running tight routes. Anderson had a catch and run of 28 yards on a deep slant route. The young rookie from Temple is getting better and better as he sees more snaps in 3-wide receiver sets.
2016 Week 6 vs ARI (6 / 4 / 24 / 0 rec)
Robby Anderson was largely a non-factor. Functioning as the 3rd read on most plays, Anderson served as the underneath option that Fitzpatrick took when he needed to unload the ball.
2016 Week 5 vs PIT (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
New York's other rookie wide receiver, Robby Anderson, played limited snaps and only caught one pass for 10 yards on a slip screen.
2016 Week 4 vs SEA (6 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
New York's other rookie wide receiver, Robby Anderson, played limited snaps and only caught two passes for short gains.
