Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Bears. That frees up a few extra targets for Robby Anderson, D.J. Moore and Mike Davis.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bears. Hopefully he wasn’t part of your Week 6 plans — but Samuel’s absence would free up a few extra targets for WR Robby Anderson, WR D.J. Moore and RB Mike Davis.

The Panthers have agreed to a 2-year deal with WR Robby Anderson, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Anderson -- who played under new HC Matt Rhule at Temple -- figures to start opposite D.J. Moore in Carolina's renovated offense. Curtis Samuel, meanwhile, could fit in the slot. Although Samuel spent a lot of time running downfield routes last season, he was a short-range playmaker as a RB/WR in college. He doesn't look like a top-36 fantasy WR heading into the season but has some upside. We'll be interested to see how the offense shakes out under Rhule and OC Joe Brady. Anderson leaves behind 96 targets (an 18.4% share) for the Jets to disperse.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) is active for today’s game against the Bills. He was limited in practice all week, so don’t expect him to be operating at 100% today. Anderson’s matchup did get a boost, though, with CB Tre’Davious White deactivated.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bills after a limited week of practice. We’ve heard nothing to suggest the injury is serious, but it’s possible Anderson is held out of this meaningless finale. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Jets WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring, knee) is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. He's averaged 5.3 targets per game this season, so his absence opens up a few extra looks for WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) has been cleared to play, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So he'll return for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after missing the last 3 games and 4 weeks. It's obviously a huge boost to a Jets passing game that had been forced to turn to QB Luke Falk. Darnold's return puts WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder back on the fantasy radar, although we'd still try to take a wait-and-see approach with this passing game for now.

Jets HC Adam Gase announced Thursday that QB Sam Darnold will miss "multiple games" with mono. So consider him out at least for Monday night's game vs. the Browns and Week 3 against the Patriots. The Jets have a Week 4 bye. That leaves QB Trevor Siemian as New York's starter. The 27-year-old completed just 59.3% of his passes with 6.8 yards per attempt in Denver across 2016 and 2017. He spent last year backing up Kirk Cousins in Minnesota. Siemian completed 78% of his passes this preseason but averaged a pathetic 4.9 yards per attempt. This is obviously a major downgrade for the Jets passing game. We'd try to avoid WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

The Patriots have traded WR Demaryius Thomas to the Jets in exchange for a 2021 6th-round pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter. New England didn't have much of a need for Thomas after adding Antonio Brown to Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon. We'll see how Thomas fits into a Jets WR corps topped by Robby Anderson, Jamison Crowder and Quincy Enunwa, but we're not expecting much fantasy value. Thomas is at least familiar with HC Adam Gase's offense after spending 2010-2014 with him in Denver.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) is active for today’ game against the Bills. He was limited in practice all week, so don’t expect him to be at 100%. That, plus a matchup with CB Tre'Davious White, makes Anderson a shaky WR3 option.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) is "trending toward playing" against the Bills today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Anderson was limited in practice all week, and it still doesn't sound like he's at 100% He's a risky WR3 in a tough matchup vs. Bills CB Tre'Davious White.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. HC Adam Gase has said that Anderson will play, but it doesn't look like he'll be at 100%. That, plus a matchup with stud CB Tre'Davious White, makes Anderson a shaky WR3 option.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (calf) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. HC Adam Gase said Thursday, though, that Anderson "looks good" and is "ready to roll" for this weekend's opener against the Bills. We'll see if Anderson progresses to full participation on Thursday or Friday.

Jets HC Adam Gase said WR Robby Anderson (calf) is "trending toward playing on Sunday" against the Bills. Anderson suffered a calf injury in late August, but it never seemed serious. We'll track his practice participation this week, but expect him to be out there for a tough matchup with Bills CB Tre'Davious White.

HC Adam Gase's Dolphins were the slowest-paced offense in the NFL from 2016-2018, running a play once every 29.8 seconds of game clock, according to ESPN Stats & Information. But Gase wants to get back to more of the uptempo attack he ran in Denver, when his Broncos snapped it every 25.3 seconds -- 3rd fastest. We've noticed the Jets playing faster this preseason and discussed it on the latest podcast. QB Sam Darnold is a fan. "That got me excited because I've been in an offense where last year was more slow-paced," he said. "In high school and college, I was in those fast-paced, no-huddle offenses. I just kind of felt more comfortable doing that kind of stuff. It's going to be a lot of fun this year." A faster pace means more plays. And more plays mean more fantasy points. The Jets offense -- and the passing game in particular -- looks set to exceed expectations this season.

Jets WR Robby Anderson is sidelined with a calf injury. "I don't know if it's a concern, but any time you have a soft-tissue injury, it's an unknown," HC Adam Gase said. "That's why it's day-to-day. Hopefully we'll get him back for the practices and give him a full week and he feels good and we'll be ready to roll." This will be a situation to monitor leading up to the Jets' opener against the Bills next weekend.

Adam Gase has been hired as the Jets' HC. A hot name on the coaching market just 3 years ago, Gase underwhelmed in Miami, compiling a 23-25 record. The former OC's Dolphins offenses never ranked better than 24th in yards or 17th in points. In his defense, Gase was working with 1 of the weaker rosters in the league. The Jets aren't exactly loaded right now, but they do have a promising, young QB in Sam Darnold.

Jets WRs Quincy Enunwa (ankle) and Jermaine Kearse (heel) are out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. That leaves Andre Roberts, Deontay Burnett and Charone Peake behind Robby Anderson on the depth chart. Anderson will dominate WR targets, and TE Chris Herndon could also see a volume spike.

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. The helps the target projection for WR Robby Anderson, who's totaled 25 looks over his last 3 games.
