No. 4 Robby Anderson vs Detroit
If there’s one player I think Darnold truly uses like he had been, it’s Anderson. Take away the off field, where Anderson has a lot of work to do. In his first two years in New York, Anderson has steadily improved and looks ready to take off with the right quarterback under center.
If Sam Darnold is the second coming of Namath then that should make Anderson happy. Quick look at years one and two for the wideout:
2016 – 42 receptions, 587 yards and two touchdowns
2017- 63 receptions, 941 yards and seven touchdowns
The Detroit defense gave up 100+ yards total to opposing teams in all but two games in 2017. Anderson may not even just be a flex here weke one, he could slide right into that second receiver spot. If Darnold finds a rhythm and Crowell and Powell find space early, you can bet Anderson will try to take advantage on Monday night.
