2018 Fantasy Outlook
Who knew the Jets passing game had so much to offer? Anderson, along with teammate Jermaine Kearse, were both playable fantasy options last year, with Anderson in particular going on a five-game TD-scoring streak Weeks 7-11. By season's end, Anderson finished as the No. 15 scoring wideout in non-PPR on a solid 14.9 YPC and 8.3 YPT. At 6-3, 190, Anderson is tall and lanky, runs a blazing 4.34 40 and sports a 37-inch vertical leap. He didn't see a ton of red-zone work - only 10 of his 114 targets were from that area of the field, and he lacks the bulk to make catches in traffic. In 2018, the 25-year-old should return as the team's No. 1 target and retains the surprisingly effective Josh McCown as his likely signal-caller for now, though No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold should take over at some point. The Jets added Terrelle Pryor as a free agent, and last year's original top receiver, Quincy Enunwa, is expected back from a neck injury, so there should be more competition for targets in New York this year. Anderson's off-field issues have been resolved from a legal perspective, but he may still receive discipline from the league at some point. Read Past Outlooks

Likely No. 1 wideout in Week 15
WRNew York Jets
December 13, 2018
Anderson is expected to serve as the Jets' top receiver Sunday against the Texans with fellow starter Quincy Enunwa (ankle) ruled out for the contest, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
With Sam Darnold (foot) returning from a three-game absence to start in the Week 14 win over the Bills, Anderson (four receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown on seven targets) actually outproduced Enunwa (three catches for 22 yards on four targets), who had been the rookie signal-caller's go-to option in the passing game for much of the first half of the season. The big performance in addition to Enunwa's absence should make Anderson a more comfortable option in Week 15 fantasy lineups, though the speedy 25-year-old still carries considerable bust potential from game to game. The last time Enunwa missed a game in which Anderson played (Week 7 against the Vikings), the latter drew 10 targets, but hauled in only three of them for 44 yards.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
An undrafted rookie, Anderson parlayed a big preseason into a roster spot, but it wasn't until Week 13 that he saw double-digit targets, thanks to backup QB Bryce Petty. Anderson had three catches of 40-plus yards and 240 receiving yards over three games before disappearing again when Petty got hurt. At 6-3, 190, Anderson is tall, slight and very fast -- 4.36 40. He's not built to take contact over the middle, and he's not especially quick, but his height, leaping ability and speed make him a deep threat. The Jets rarely threw to him in the red zone, where he drew only five of his 78 targets. Josh McCown is the favorite to start at quarterback for the Jets, but Petty and Christian Hackenberg also are in the mix. With Eric Decker released late in the offseason and Quincy Enunwa likely out for the year with a neck injury, Anderson has a clear path to a starting job, though he could face league discipline stemming from a May arrest. He enters the preseason as the top candidate to serve as the Jets' No. 1 receiver.
