Jets TE Jeff Cumberland (concussion, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 6.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
With Jace Amaro on IR for the year, Jeff Cumberland now takes over as the Jets starting tight end. Which means he will see the most snaps and if the Jets decide to throw to him, he could help your fantasy team on certain days. His biggest asset could be the red zone, although we have not see that much in his career. His new role as the starter could change that, however.

Fantasy Downside
Cumberland is not a pass-catching tight end. His career-high was 29 catches in 2012 and he won't be part of the Jets game plan with any regularity.

Bottom Line
Becoming the starter increases Cumberland's fantasy value, but only to the point of providing bench depth. I wouldn't even consider him a sleeper at this point, but the amount of snaps he gets will give him a chance to contribute in deeper leagues.
