The New York Jets believe TE Jordan Leggett can be the primary receiving tight end in 2018. 'Before he got hurt, we saw a lot of good things in the spring,' head coach Todd Bowles said.
Huddle Up: Leggett lost his rookie season to a knee injury, so the Jets are taking a big leap of faith if they are banking on him to carry the load. Fantasy owners can afford to take a wait-and-see approach.

New York Jets TE Jordan Leggett 'needs some work,' according to
NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes, who observed the rookie
struggled with technique, route-running and drops in the two
practices open to the media last week.
Huddle Up: It's not uncommon for a rookie to struggle with drops in his
first few pro practices due to nerves, nor is it surprise Leggett
needs fine-tuning with technique and route-running after spending
his career in Clemson's spread offense. Leggett's biggest problem
in college was bringing the same level of effort in every game.
Regardless of his early struggles, he's got a decent chance to
start Week 1 with Austin Seferian-Jenkins facing a two-game
suspension and virtually no other competition behind him.

New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton reportedly told
rookie TE Jordan Leggett he 'loves' tight ends and wants to make
them a 'go-to guy' in his offense.
Huddle Up: Former play-caller Chan Gailey rarely dialed up any plays for his
tight ends, as the position has accounted for fewer than 30
targets in each of the last two seasons. Leggett could get an
early shot to take advantage with Austin Seferian-Jenkins
suspended the first two games, but the Jets' quarterback
situation figures to render the point moot. As a result,
Seferian-Jenkins and Leggett can be avoided in fantasy.
