One of the more pleasant surprises of the 2018 fantasy season, Anderson finished 16th in WR fantasy scoring last year. He scored at least one touchdown in five consecutive games -- part of a wildly productive seven-game midseason stretch in which he had 35 receptions for 601 yards. Anderson has a 6-3 frame and 4.4 speed, making him a dangerous deep threat. Last year he had 17 receptions of 20 or more yards. Anderson is likely to be the No. 1 option in a thin Jets WR corps. He’s just 25 and may still have untapped upside.
Anderson has had arrests in each of the last two offseasons. In January, Anderson was arrested for allegedly speeding and threatening to sexually assault the arresting officer’s wife. He faced nine charges, though all but a reckless driving charge were eventually dropped. In May 2017, he was arrested at a Miami music festival and charged with resisting arrest and obstruction of police. Anderson has a rail-thin build that raises durability concerns. The Jets are in transition at the QB position and probably won’t score many touchdowns this season.
After two arrests, Anderson has to be downgraded for character concerns, but his talent is undeniable. The Jets figure to have a limited passing attack this year, but Anderson should be a big contributor to it, if he can stay out of trouble.
