Kroft has been one of the bigger surprises of the spring. He has seen a lot of time with the starting unit and tight end is a position battle to watch in training camp. Kroft could beat out Chris Herndon for the job if Herndon does not shake out of the funk he was in last year.
Right now both Tyler Kroft and Chris Herndon are free in both best ball and redraft leagues. Neither is recommended for redraft but at their current ADPs (Kroft: 216.0, Herndon: 211.6), whoever emerges at the end of training camp is worth a dart throw.
NYJ TE Chris Herndon - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 at Miami
We are still looking for the Chris Herndon we saw his rookie season, but he hasn't shown up yet. Last week, he only was targeted three times which produced two receptions for 24 yards. He still has zero touchdowns, but there is still hope considering he is getting snaps and there aren't many other options in the Jets offense.
The matchup this week is tough as Miami is eighth in aFPA to tight ends. We will continue to keep Herndon on the radar, but he should be a bench player for Week 6 as a low-end TE2.
