Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was ranked among the best deep threats in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus' Michael Renner.
Anderson was one of four players who were graded as honorable mentions to the Chiefs' Tyreek Hill, who was ranked the biggest deep threat in the league. The other honorable mentions were the Falcons' Julio Jones, Colts' T.Y. Hilton and Rams' Brandin Cooks.
The 25-year-old Anderson recorded 63 catches for 941 receiving yards and seven touchdowns last season, his second in the pros since going undrafted out of Temple.
Anderson had three games of at least 100 receiving yards, including a game in which he had six receptions, 146 receiving yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers. That game, he caught touchdowns of 33 and 54 yards, but his longest of the season was a 69-yard touchdown in a Week 3 win over the Miami Dolphins.
Anderson has faced trouble off the field, receiving six months of probation for reckless driving charges from January. The incident is still under review by the NFL's personal conduct policy, meaning he could still face a suspension.
The Jets are the only team with four different receivers who have recorded 800 receiving yards in a season: Anderson in 2017, Jermaine Kearse (810 in 2017), Quincy Enunwa (857 in 2016) and Terrelle Pryor (1,007 in 2016).
