Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
2015
After breaking out with a seven-sack campaign in 2018, Anderson came plummeting back down to earth in 2019. A shoulder injury didn't help matters, but the bottom line is he managed only one sack in 13 games. The 29-year-old defensive end will hope to bounce back with better health, and New York's lack of depth at his position should ensure Anderson holds on to a starting spot.
Desperately in need of defensive line help, the Jets shipped out a seventh-round pick to add Anderson this offseason. While he won't add much to New York's anemic pass rush, Anderson has been stout against the run throughout his career and should earn some playing time.
Anderson, a 2015 third-round draft pick, doesn't profile as a probable double-digit sack threat, but he has a big build at 6-foot-6, 294 pounds and boasts rare athleticism for his size. He'll compete for a regular role on the defensive line this summer.
