Week 12: vs Carolina Panthers
FBG says: Tough matchup. Against all odds, Josh McCown has both remained upright and been a stabilizing force at quarterback for the rebuilding Jets. McCown has greatly curbed his scattershot ways, posting by far the best completion rate of his career and the league's 19th-most adjusted yards per attempt. Of course, the cost of that sanitized production is typically dynamism, and this passing game boasts no fantasy appeal outside of wideout Robby Anderson and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Anderson has carried over nicely from 2016 as a productive deep threat, posting 4 games of 76+ yards and catching 5 touchdowns, including his current 4-game scoring streak. He's the closest thing to a WR1 in this offense and a weekly threat to catch a long touchdown. Seferian-Jenkins has struggled for efficiency (just 7.4 yards per reception) as an exceptionally low-aDOT target, but provided fantasy-TE1 volume with his 78% catch rate. The Panthers pass defense has been generally strong through 2017, with very few hiccups. They've allowed the league's ninth-fewest net yards per attempt (which factors in sacks) and fourth-fewest raw yards. There are occasional lapses in coverage, though: while only 7 teams have allowed fewer completions of 20+ yards, the Panthers have benefited mightily from several easy-touchdown drops (think Julio Jones' inexplicable goof in Week 9. Still, opponents' deep balls are often neutralized by the Panthers' explosive pass rush, which sits fourth in the league in sacks. The bottom line is that this unit is generally difficult to throw against, but not necessarily a prohibitive one.

2017 Week 8 vs ATL (6 / 6 / 104 / 1 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
After last week's late game outburst, the talented young receiver bounced back with a strong performance against a talented secondary.

Anderson had some good and bad momentsˇand unfortunately was injured late in the game.

Three plays later, he was injured as New York turned the ball over on downs to end the game.

This play gave New York a 10-0 lead, a lead that it would not relinquish.
2017 Week 2 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Robby Anderson made a few nice catches over the middle, but Kearse seemed to be McCown's preferred target. Anderson worked the short-to-intermediate areas of the field, hauling in a 19-yarder on a cross route for his long-play of the game.
2017 Week 1 vs BUF (8 / 4 / 22 / 0 rec)
Robby Anderson made a few nice catches over the middle, but Kearse seemed to be McCown's preferred target. Towards the end of the game, Anderson ran a deep sideline route and made a leaping grab. Anderson and safety, Jordan Poyer battled for the ball, but Anderson came down with the ball. The official ruled Poyer made the interception, a curious call, given the outcome of the play.

Our View: Anderson has had touchdowns in four straight games, so if you play him, you're mostly betting on that. He did have 85 yards last week and 104 in Week 8, so he's capable of nice yardage production. That said, this is a hard matchup and his quarterback has been solid but rarely impressive, so we are seeing him as a WR4 this week and no more.

Our View: Anderson's touchdown came in garbage time, but it counts just the same, and he has scored in four straight games. He's worth holding through the bye as quality wide receiver depth.
