With Sam Darnold (foot) returning from a three-game absence to start in the Week 14 win over the Bills, Anderson (four receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown on seven targets) actually outproduced Enunwa (three catches for 22 yards on four targets), who had been the rookie signal-caller's go-to option in the passing game for much of the first half of the season. The big performance in addition to Enunwa's absence should make Anderson a more comfortable option in Week 15 fantasy lineups, though the speedy 25-year-old still carries considerable bust potential from game to game. The last time Enunwa missed a game in which Anderson played (Week 7 against the Vikings), the latter drew 10 targets, but hauled in only three of them for 44 yards.
Anderson (ankle) caught four of seven targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills.
Despite battling a tough Buffalo secondary, Anderson took over in the fourth quarter. His 7-yard touchdown with 12:06 remaining tied the game at 20-20, then Anderson caught a crucial 37-yard pass down the sideline with under two minutes remaining. Anderson couldn't get both feet down on an end-zone target later in the drive, but his big catch helped set up Elijah McGuire's 1-yard score, which turned a 23-20 deficit into a 27-23 lead. The speedy wideout's getting healthy just in time to help out owners down the stretch. In Week 15, he draws a Houston team that just allowed Colts speedster T.Y. Hilton to rack up 199 receiving yards.
Anderson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.
After opening the week as a full practice participant, Anderson only managed limited showings Thursday and Friday while he was nagged by the ankle issue that has bothered him since late October. Though Anderson could probably benefit from some extra rest, it's not expected that he'll face any noteworthy restrictions with his snap count Sunday. Over the past two games, Anderson managed six receptions for 70 yards on 12 targets while playing with Josh McCown, but the wideout will have rookie signal-caller Sam Darnold throwing to him this week. Over the previous eight games he and Darnold played, Anderson scored only three touchdowns and exceeded 45 receiving yards on one occasion.
Anderson (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Buffalo, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Anderson still hasn't made a full recovery from the ankle sprain he suffered in late October, but he seems to be on track to play for a third straight week, likely catching passes from rookie signal-caller Sam Darnold. Between the matchup, the injury and his recent lack of production, Anderson doesn't offer much fantasy appeal for Week 14. The Bills allow just 6.4 yards per pass attempt and Anderson hasn't reached 50 yards in a game since Oct. 7.
Anderson was limited at Thursday's practice after getting in a full session Wednesday, and it's still not clear why he did less than he did the day before. Regardless, he has still taken part in practice all three days this week, which bodes well in regards to his Week 14 availability.
