New York Jets TE Chris Herndon had one reception for 11 yards in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Herndon was a popular sleeper entering the season, but with just 74 yards receiving combined over the first four games it appears he's just going to keep on slumbering.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon posted three catches for 21 yards on five targets in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Herndon opened with six grabs in Week 1, but he has managed just four catches for 26 yards on nine targets in his past two outings. That type of production isn't good for anyone in fantasy.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon caught one of his four targets for five yards in a 31-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2.
Huddle Up: After catching six passes in the opener, Herndon was almost blanked in Week 2, and he is averaging just 6.0 yards per reception so far this season. Outside of dynasty formats, Herndon doesn't need to be rostered.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon caught six passes for 37 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Herndon was very involved in the passing game against the Bills but was targeted on mostly short passes. He should continue to see a handful of targets each game but may only be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon was praised by head coach Adam Gase after practice on Sunday, Aug. 17. 'He's our starting tight end,' the coach said. 'He plays both in-line and he plays off the ball.'
Huddle Up: Herndon was limited to just 18 offensive snaps last season, but the coach is high on the tight end. He has lined up at slot receiver, outside receiver and traditional tight end spots in practice. He could be quite a sleeper heading into the season, and he is worth scooping up as a late-round gem who could easily outperform his ADP if he stays healthy.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon has a chance to become QB Sam Darnold's 'Travis Kelce or Zach Ertz' in 2020, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: While Herndon certainly flashed TE1 potential in 2018, he is coming off an injury and a suspension last year, and head coach Adam Gase doesn't have a history of relying heavily on tight ends. Herndon is worth a look as a high-upside TE2, but don't expect him to join the ranks of the elite fantasy tight ends this season.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon could underwhelm in 2020 because of the way head coach Adam Gase utilizes the tight end position, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. When Gase was with the Miami Dolphins from 2016 to 2018, his tight ends finished with a league-low 150 catches in that span.
Huddle Up: Herndon flashed TE1 potential as a rookie in 2018, but injuries ruined his sophomore campaign. Gase's history with tight ends isn't encouraging, but Herndon is one of the most dynamic weapons the Jets have in the passing game. He's still worth a flier as a TE2.
