Jets expect Chris Herndon to play key receiving role

New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon is expected to play a larger role after recording 18 snaps last season.

What It Means:

The Jets are expected to rely on Herndon after the athletic tight end flashed intriguing potential during his rookie season with an average of 1.71 yards per route and 502 total yards. Look for Herndon's stock to rise as fantasy players look to draft the Jets' tight end as a late-round value in season-long formats.

Herndon's yearly projection includes 46.8 receptions for 510.5 yards and 3.6 touchdowns on 74.3 targets.
