2020 Fantasy Outlook
Anderson's free-agent landing spot isn't ideal. Not only do the Panthers have the first receiver taken in the 2018 draft, rising star D.J. Moore, but speedy 2017 second-round pick, Curtis Samuel, is also around. And don't forget tailback Christian McCaffrey, who was eighth in the NFL with 142 targets last season. Combine that with game manager Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback and it's hard to see Anderson getting a ton of opportunities. That said, sometimes you have to buy skills and trust in the unpredictability of circumstances. At 6-3, 190, with blazing 4.37 40 speed and a 37-inch vertical leap, Anderson has the physical specs to be a star. His per-play production was modest with the Jets due to below-average QB play and coaching, but he rarely dropped a pass (only three in his last 190 targets), and averaged 15.0 yards per catch the last two years. And while Bridgewater has always been loath to take chances, he was in the Vikings' conservative system and briefly in Sean Payton's short-passing attack during his two NFL stops. New coach Matt Rhule and offensive coordinator Joe Brady could ask Bridgewater to make more downfield throws. Read Past Outlooks

Anderson caught three of seven targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Saints.
ANALYSIS
Anderson made a splash with his 31-yard long gain but managed just nine yards between his other two grabs. He was lost in the shuffle a bit in this one as DJ Moore and Curtis Samuel had big games, but he finishes the season with new career highs of 95 receptions and 1,096 yards to go along with three touchdowns. Anderson should maintain a large role next season -- especially if Samuel leaves in free agency -- and will look to improve upon his first campaign with the Panthers.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
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.
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.
