New York Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, June 16, by hamstring 'tightness,' but head coach Robert Saleh added that he expects Herndon to be 'perfectly fine' going forward.
Huddle Up: Herndon is coming off a disappointing 2020 season (31 catches for 287 yards and three TDs) after missing all but one game in 2019 due to a substance-abuse suspension and a hamstring injury. That makes 2021 a big season for Herndon, and he's a low-end TE2 flyer in deeper and two-tight end leagues for now.

New York Jets TE Chris Herndon posted four receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Herndon has come on in the past two games, posting seven grabs for 82 yards and a score on eight targets in the past two games, his best two-game stretch of the season. He has shown promise to be a fantasy threat before, but he has mostly been a disappointment in the NFL. He'll try to keep up the good work in Week 17 in New England.

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 (chest) left practice early with a chest issue Tuesday, Sept. 1, but tests revealed no structural damage. The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reported that Herndon, who reportedly had difficulty breathing times during practice, should be fine despite having irritation in his lungs.

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.
