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.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (mono) has been cleared to play, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So he'll return for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after missing the last 3 games and 4 weeks. It's obviously a huge boost to a Jets passing game that had been forced to turn to QB Luke Falk. Darnold's return puts WRs Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder back on the fantasy radar, although we'd still try to take a wait-and-see approach with this passing game for now.

HC Adam Gase's Dolphins were the slowest-paced offense in the NFL from 2016-2018, running a play once every 29.8 seconds of game clock, according to ESPN Stats & Information. But Gase wants to get back to more of the uptempo attack he ran in Denver, when his Broncos snapped it every 25.3 seconds -- 3rd fastest. We've noticed the Jets playing faster this preseason and discussed it on the latest podcast. QB Sam Darnold is a fan. "That got me excited because I've been in an offense where last year was more slow-paced," he said. "In high school and college, I was in those fast-paced, no-huddle offenses. I just kind of felt more comfortable doing that kind of stuff. It's going to be a lot of fun this year." A faster pace means more plays. And more plays mean more fantasy points. The Jets offense -- and the passing game in particular -- looks set to exceed expectations this season.

The NFL has suspended Jets TE Chris Herndon for the 1st 4 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. A suspension was expected, following Herndon's June 2018 DUI, but rumor had it at 2 games. We might yet see an appeal here. If you're drafting now, though, treat it as a 4-game ban and move Herndon down your TE rankings. The Jets have a Week 4 bye, which means you'd lose Herndon (and that roster spot) for the season's 1st 5 weeks. His absence could help the target outlooks for players such as Jamison Crowder and Quincy Enunwa.

Jets TE Chris Herndon is "facing the likelihood of a two-game suspension for pleading guilty in January to driving while intoxicated," ESPN's Rich Cimini reported Friday. Assuming that comes to fruition, it'll make Herndon tough to go after in common-sized redraft leagues. TE is already a position where we often look to roster just 1 player. Tying up a roster spot with a 2nd who won't even be available the 1st 2 weeks would complicate waiver decisions in 2 of the more important weeks for such moves all season. That said, Herndon should be able to flirt with low-TE1 production when he does hit the field this year.

The Athletic's Connor Hughes highlighted TE Chris Herndon as 1 of the Jets' most impressive players in OTAs. "You can tell the second-year pro is getting comfortable in [HC Adam] Gase’s scheme," Hughes writes. "He’s not thinking as much as he’s letting his athletic ability take over." Hughes adds that Herndon and QB Sam Darnold "already have impressive chemistry." Herndon posted a promising 39-502-4 line as a rookie, finishing 16th among TEs in PPR points. He's capable of climbing higher in year 2.

Adam Gase has been hired as the Jets' HC. A hot name on the coaching market just 3 years ago, Gase underwhelmed in Miami, compiling a 23-25 record. The former OC's Dolphins offenses never ranked better than 24th in yards or 17th in points. In his defense, Gase was working with 1 of the weaker rosters in the league. The Jets aren't exactly loaded right now, but they do have a promising, young QB in Sam Darnold.

Jets TE Chris Herndon on Wednesday pled guilty to DWI after a June arrest in New Jersey. It figures to earn him a suspension from the league next season. Herndon is coming off a promising rookie campaign that saw him post a 39-502-4 line. Only 8 rookie TEs have tallied more receiving yards over the past 10 years.

Jets WRs Quincy Enunwa (ankle) and Jermaine Kearse (heel) are out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. That leaves Andre Roberts, Deontay Burnett and Charone Peake behind Robby Anderson on the depth chart. Anderson will dominate WR targets, and TE Chris Herndon could also see a volume spike.

Jets TE Chris Herndon was arrested and charged with DWI in New Jersey on early Saturday morning. The 4th-round rookie crashed into another car and a railroad motorcar at 4:45 am. The accident figures to earn him a suspension from the league. Herndon has a shot to carve out a role in the Jets' wide-open TE corps, but this obviously won't help his cause.

The Jets used a 4th-round pick on Miami TE Chris Herndon. He tore his MCL in last year's regular-season finale and wasn't able to workout pre-draft, but Herndon looks plenty athletic on tape. He was a 3-year starter for the 'Canes and left school with a 12.2 yards-per-catch average. This landing spot is as good as it gets. Herndon's competition for 2018 snaps and targets consists of Clive Walford, Jordan Leggett and Eric Tomlinson.
