Week 7: vs Minnesota Vikings

All WR vs MIN

FBG says: Good matchup. Sam Darnold may have already arrived. The youngest starting quarterback of the Super Bowl era, Darnold opened his NFL career with a whimper, completing just 56% of his throws over the first 5 weeks. But over the last 2, he's averaged a studly 9.54 yards per attempt and thrown 5 touchdowns. Darnold is a strong-armed prospect, one who's unafraid to test downfield and flashes excellent placement when his mechanics are sound. He's still getting by mostly on quick, short routes, and his slot men remain the Jets' most consistent producers. Quincy Enunwa easily led the team in targets and yardage before his Week 6 injury, and Jermaine Kearse stepped in last week to catch 9 balls. But as Darnold's confidence and fundamentals improve, there will be more opportunity for splash plays. As it stands, this certainly isn't the league's most explosive attack, but it's one that's finally showing fantasy utility. If Darnold keeps developing quickly as a franchise passer, the fortunes of Robby Anderson and Terrelle Pryor will rise, if only gradually. In general, the Vikings pass defense has been disappointing to open 2018. They were last year's second-most dominant unit, but thus far have allowed 4 of 6 quarterbacks to top 260 yards. They faced rookies in the other two games, and even Buffalo's Josh Allen was able to beat them on a handful of tough downfield throws. The pass rush remains dynamic, even without Everson Griffen, but the coverage units have been undermanned and shaky. The cornerbacks have alternated solid performances with bad ones, and it likely won't get better without first-round rookie Mike Hughes. This a group still quite capable of dominating, as it did last week in haranguing Cardinals rookie Josh Rosen. But it's no longer the fantasy-shutdown unit it once was.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 6 vs IND (5 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec)

A week after a huge game against Denver, Anderson was relatively quiet. The Colts dedicated themselves to containing him on deep passes, but in doing so they left themselves open to damage by Terrelle Pryor and Jermaine Kearse. Anderson was the target on Sam Darnold's well-underthrown ball in the first quarter of the game, but that was really the only deep ball he saw.

2018 Week 5 vs DEN (5 / 3 / 123 / 2 rec)

After totaling 108 yards on 8 catches in the first four games, Anderson finally exploded for the Jets, literally in the case of his 76-yard touchdown in the second quarter. On that play he threw a hesitation move at the defender, then kicked in the jets to blow past him where quarterback Sam Darnold placed the ball perfectly in his hands so he could head to the end zone without breaking stride. His second touchdown came on a play when the coverage was actually really good. Anderson was running a corner route, but was blanketed. Darnold dropped a perfect pass into his hands in the end zone where only Anderson would get the pass.

2018 Week 4 vs JAX (6 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

On the plus side, Anderson got through a game without a fumble. On the downside, his inability to do anything more than run fast in a straight line is not helping him be a bigger part of an offense which is limited itself. Worse the one thing he can do, they finally let him do and rookie quarterback Sam Darnold still missed him on a deep route where Anderson had a step on the defender. It's hard to overthrow Anderson, but that happened.

2018 Week 3 vs CLE (4 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)

Anderson's most impactful play was also, regrettably, his worst as he was stripped of the ball on the Jets' 26-yard line. The Browns returned the ball to about the seven yard line. The Jets defense bailed him out, limiting the resulting damage to three points, but it does seem that between the Jets conservative offense and his inability to shake the coverage which comes from being the ostensible top target in the offense, his only impacts have been negative. This was his second fumble of the year.

2018 Week 2 vs MIA (5 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Anderson isn't seeing a ton of work, though whether it's because rookie Sam Darnold isn't seeing him or just because the offense is focused on short passes is hard to say. The latter is definitely a factor, since Anderson's strength is vertical routes and the Jets offense isn't going deep very often.

2018 Week 1 vs DET (1 / 1 / 41 / 1 rec, 1 / -9 / 0 rush)

Anderson only had one target but he made it count. On his 41-yard touchdown reception, Anderson was released by the corner, but the deep safety had been baited into stepping forward, not backpedaling, so by the time he caught up to Anderson, the receiver had prime position. The throw was a little short, but Anderson did an excellent job of leaping up and yanking the ball away from the defender.
