Jets WR Robby Anderson (hamstring) took full practice reps all week. On the surface, it’s discouraging that Bryce Petty is taking over for the injured Josh McCown, but Petty and Anderson showed a nice rapport last season. Last year, Petty targeted Anderson on 26% of his pass attempts, and Anderson accounted for 39% of Petty’s yards and 67% of his touchdowns. Petty averaged 8.91 yards per attempt when targeting Anderson and just 4.96 YPA when targeting all other receivers. Anderson is not a player to avoid with Petty under center.

Scouting Report

Week 14 at Denver Broncos

Josh McCown has now put up back-to-back 300+ passing yard games and what seemed to be a stop-gap move at the beginning of the season has become good quarterback play and Jets wins. McCown completed 72% of his passes on Sunday and although he only threw one touchdown pass, he ran for two others.

McCown will now face the Broncos, who are 15th in aFPA to quarterbacks, on the road. Despite recent success, it will get tougher for him at Mile High. Keep McCown on the bench as a QB2 for Week 14.
