Anderson caught three of eight targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Patriots. He finishes the season with 50 catches for 752 yards and six touchdowns.
Anderson capped the campaign with a dud, but the speedster had been displaying excellent chemistry with quarterback Sam Darnold with 20 catches, 312 yards and three touchdowns in the previous three weeks. Continuity is key for a young quarterback, so the Jets are expected to bring back Anderson, who's a restricted free agent. Despite some inconsistency and injury struggles, Anderson was Darnold's most dangerous weapon this year.
Anderson hauled in nine of 13 targets for 140 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-38 loss to Green Bay.
Anderson got free downfield for a 33-yard touchdown in the second quarter on a fake running back screen, and a locked-in Sam Darnold found him with ease. After the rookie quarterback and speedy wide receiver both battled injuries in the middle portion of the season, they've developed a tremendous rapport over the past three weeks, linking up for 20 catches, 312 yards and three touchdowns. Owners who have looked Anderson's way during this hot streak should keep riding the wave against New England in Week 17.
Enunwa forged a quick connection with rookie signal-caller Sam Darnold in the first half of the schedule, but Anderson has made the bigger impression of the two over the last two weeks while Enunwa has been held out or limited by the ankle injury. In those contests, Anderson has drawn 18 targets, turning them into 11 catches for 172 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Darnold should look Anderson's way often again in Week 16, though the speedy wideout could struggle to generate downfield separation from the Packers' top corner, Jaire Alexander, a burner in his own right.
Anderson caught seven of 11 targets for 96 yards in Saturday's loss to the Texans.
Anderson took advantage of Quincy Enunwa's (ankle) absence and was quarterback Sam Darnold's clear top target Saturday, with no other pass catcher receiving more than five targets. The 25-year-old now has 11 catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the last two games, by far his best two-game stretch of the season. Enunwa's status for Week 16 will impact Anderson's outlook as he attempts to continue his solid production against the Packers.
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.
