2019 Fantasy Outlook
Coming off a 2017 breakout, Anderson started 2018 slowly as rookie quarterback Sam Darnold didn't call his number often, instead preferring to lean on Quincy Enunwa. But over the season's final four weeks, with Enunwa hurt and Darnold having some games under his belt, Anderson became the top target and posted a 39-23-336-3 line over that span. At 6-3, 190, Anderson is tall and lanky and ran a blistering 4.37 40 with a 37-inch vertical leap, giving him a nice edge on smaller corners down the field. He hasn't seen much red-zone use the last two years, but the offense should change a good deal under new coach Adam Gase. In Miami, Gase was known for favoring different receivers (and backs) almost at random - one week it would be Albert Wilson, the next Danny Amendola, maybe Kenny Stills would see 10 targets or DeVante Parker even - so it might be hard to predict target share on a weekly basis for Anderson. Moreover, Enunwa is back, last year's rookie tight end Chris Herndon showed considerable promise, the Jets signed small, quick slot man Jamison Crowder from Washington, and running back Le'Veon Bell (Steelers) will also have a big role in the team's passing game. Anderson will maintain his role as the team's primary deep threat, and his rapport with Darnold down the stretch should help, but there's a good deal of volatility in his target forecast.

Not interested in hometown discount

December 30, 2019
Anderson, a pending free agent, said he won't give the Jets a hometown discount, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. "You got to talk to my agent," Anderson said. "I don't think that makes sense."
ANALYSIS
The real question is whether he'll even listen to the team's offers. Anderson has played 62 of a possible 64 games since latching on with the Jets as an undrafted rookie in 2016, typically working as the first or second option in the passing game. His usage in terms of targets has been less consistent, and there were even rumors in October about the Jets trying to trade him. One of the thinnest players in the league, Anderson has never done much damage over the middle or after the catch, but he nonetheless profiles as one of the top WRs on the market this upcoming offseason, offering a strong combination of speed, footwork and ball skills. The 26-year-old should land a sizable contract that locks him in for a starting job, with high expectations in terms of target volume -- and fantasy volume -- depending on where he signs.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
