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

Locked in for key role under Gase
WRNew York Jets
April 23, 2019
Coach Adam Gase believes the Jets can do more to get Anderson involved in a variety of ways, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
ANALYSIS
Anderson has proven himself as a deep threat with career marks of 14.7 yards per catch and 8.0 per target, but the nature of his role combined with shaky quarterback play has made consistency elusive. While Gase seems to be hinting at a more dynamic role that allows Anderson to move around the formation, it will be tough to find snaps in the slot with Jamison Crowder, Quincy Enunwa and Le'Veon Bell all on the roster. The added competition for targets could easily be offset by improved efficiency, as Anderson turns 26 in May and quarterback Sam Darnold celebrates his 22nd birthday a month later. The two showed a strong connection late last season when Anderson caught 23 of 39 targets for 336 yards (8.6 YPT) and three touchdowns over the final four weeks.

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.
