The Jets selected BYU QB Zach Wilson with the 2nd overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Wilson enjoyed a breakout 2020 with 3,692 yards, 33 TDs and 3 INTs across 12 games. He added a 73.5% completion rate while performing as one of the nation’s most accurate QBs. The low level of competition he faced wasn’t ideal, but Wilson (6’3, 212) truly stood out as a special passer. He also rebounded nicely from an injury-riddled 2019 that began with right labrum surgery in January. Now, he heads to a strong fit with the Jets and new OC Mike LaFleur, whose offense will take advantage of Wilson’s movement skills. He’s a heavy favorite to be under center come Week 1 and could provide some spot-start value this season.

Jets WR Denzel Mims is out for Sunday’s opener against the Bills. The rookie is reportedly dealing with injuries to both hamstrings and can be dropped from redraft rosters. WR Breshad Perriman (knee) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report but isn’t a fantasy option in a matchup vs. CB Tre’Davious White. WR Jamison Crowder and TE Chris Herndon are the Jets’ top target bets.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman has been sidelined for over a week with what the team is calling knee swelling. It's unclear if he'll be available for Week 1, but Perriman won't be a fantasy option. The Jets are also still without rookie WR Denzel Mims (hamstring). Expect a lot of WR Jamison Crowder and TE Chris Herndon in the opener against Buffalo.

The New York Daily News' Charles McDonald believes Jets TE Chris Herndon will be "a huge piece" of the offense after watching the last few days of practice. He "very well might be their most talented offensive player" and "just might be [QB Sam] Darnold’s favorite target," McDonald writes. Herndon has drawn praise from multiple beat writers and his HC this week, reportedly dominating in training camp. There's certainly room for him to finish 2nd on this team in targets, with Jamison Crowder the only established WR.

Jets HC Adam Gase raved about TE Chris Herndon after Sunday's practice. "It’s rare to have a guy with the ability to be as effective as a pass catcher and a guy that’s explosive when he gets the ball in his hands, and still be an on-the-line tight end that can block in the run game and also pass protect," Gase said. Herndon lined up at TE, in the slot and even out wide on Sunday, according to The New York Daily News' Charles McDonald. Herndon's 2019 campaign was wiped out by injuries, but he flashed in a big way with a 39-502-4 line as a rookie. Only 9 rookie TEs have tallied more yards over the past 10 seasons -- and that list includes Rob Gronkowski, George Kittle and Mark Andrews. Herndon is a nice late-round target in fantasy drafts.

The Jets have placed TE Chris Herndon (ribs) on IR, ending his 2019 campaign. He ended up playing 18 snaps and catching 1 ball all year, missing time on suspension and with hamstring and rib injuries. Herndon will still be just 24 when the 2020 season kicks off and will again be an intriguing later-round sleeper after his 39-502-4 line as a rookie.

Jets TE Chris Herndon will be out an "extended amount of time" with a fractured rib suffered in yesterday's loss to the Giants, HC Adam Gase said. Herndon, of course, was making his 2019 debut in Week 10 after missing time due to suspension and a hamstring injury. This will go down as a lost season for him. Ryan Griffin will step back in as New York's lead TE.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He’s expected to actually play today, but it’s unclear exactly how big a role he’ll have. Try not to use Herndon in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) is expected to make his 2019 debut against the Giants today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Herndon was "active" last week but didn't play a snap. He has the talent and opportunity to quickly emerge as a fantasy asset. But it's completely uncertain how big a role he'll play today, so we'd try not to use him in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) remained limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Giants. HC Adam Gase sounded more optimistic about Herndon this week than last, but we’d still try not to use him in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. It’s a bit of a surprise after late-week pessimism about his availability for this one. There’s a good chance Herndon is at least a little limited in his 2019 debut, but there’s upside here in a plus matchup.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. It’s an upgrade over last week, when Herndon was listed as doubtful. But insider Manish Mehta notes that HC Adam Gase didn’t sound optimistic about Herndon’s availability on Friday. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) will remain limited in practice on Wednesday, HC Adam Gase said. Herndon was limited all last week before missing the Jaguars game. He has a shot to debut on Sunday vs. Miami but might need to get in at least 1 full workout to get the green light.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for today’s game against the Jaguars. He put in 3 limited practices this week and seemingly has a shot to make his 2019 debut next weekend.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) was limited in practice all week but is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. We’ll see if he’s able to make his 2019 debut in Week 9.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) will be limited in Wednesday's practice, HC Adam Gase said. It'll be Herndon's 1st official practice after serving a 4-game suspension and then injuring his hamstring working out on his own. Barring a setback, Herndon should have a shot to make his 2019 debut against the Jaguars this weekend.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Patriots. We'll see if he can make his 2019 debut in Week 8. Ryan Griffin will again serve as New York's lead TE on Monday but isn't a fantasy option in this matchup.

Jets TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported last week that Herndon is unlikely to play against the Patriots on Monday night. We'll see if he's able to make his 2019 debut in Week 8.

Jets TE Chris Herndon has a Grade 1 hamstring strain and is expected to miss Weeks 6 and 7, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a disappointing development for fantasy owners that had Herndon stashed over the first 5 weeks -- but we'd try to hang on to him. The talented 2nd-year TE still has a shot to emerge as a weekly fantasy starter at an ugly position.

Jets TE Chris Herndon won't practice on Wednesday after injuring his hamstring running routes on Friday, HC Adam Gase said. Gase called it "a legit hamstring," so it sounds like Herndon is in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Cowboys. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow, but fantasy owners should be making other plans for Week 6.
