Coming off of 63 catches for 941 yards and seven scores in his second season (and a No. 16 finish in half-PPR leagues), Anderson had a big Week 5 in 2018 (3-123-2 against the Broncos), but was otherwise disappointing through Week 13. Then, something strange happened: Anderson and Sam Darnold started to click. In consecutive games, Anderson posted receiving lines of 4-76-1, 7-96-1 and 9-140-1, averaging 9.8 targets per game in his last four. It helped that Quincy Enunwa was out, and there are market share concerns heading into 2019—the Jets signed Jamison Crowder and Le’Veon Bell—but it certainly helps that Anderson seems to have a fan in new HC Adam Gase, who raved earlier this year about Anderson’s speed and how smoothly he tracks the ball downfield.
