The 49ers have agreed to a 1-year deal with veteran TE Tyler Kroft, according to his agent. Kroft spent last year with the Jets after 2 with the Bills and 4 with the Bengals. He has topped 16 receptions just once in 7 seasons (42 with the 2017 Bengals). If Kroft becomes fantasy relevant in San Francisco, then something bad will have happened to George Kittle (and quite possibly others).

The Jets on Monday placed TE Tyler Kroft on the COVID list. This likely doesn't affect many fantasy rosters, but it's a little more noteworthy after Kroft saw a season high in playing time Sunday against the Jaguars and drew 5 targets.

Jets TE Tyler Kroft (back) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. Ryan Griffin will step in as New York’s lead TE but isn’t a fantasy option.

Jets TE Tyler Kroft (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Titans. With 6 catches on 9 targets through 3 weeks, he’s not a viable fantasy play.

Jets TE Tyler Kroft (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Titans. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so he should play. But hopefully you have a better fantasy option.

Jets TE Tyler Kroft was knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Broncos with a rib injury. We’ll look for an update on his situation on Monday

The Jets have traded TE Chris Herndon to the Vikings for "draft pick compensation," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That likely means a Day 3 pick, perhaps conditional. More importantly, it means Herndon enters the mix for a team that just lost Irv Smith to meniscus surgery and has been operating for a while without Tyler Conklin (hamstring). Conklin told reporters Monday that he's "feeling really good" and that the injury was "very minor in the first place," according to the team website. He has yet to return to practice but says he'll be ready for Week 1. We should learn more about Smith's return timeline after his surgery this week. Herndon, meanwhile, became expendable with a lackluster training camp and preseason for a Jets offense with nothing else exciting at TE. If Conklin is ready for the opener, we'd still bet on him as the team's initial leader at the position. We'll see whether Herndon can rebound with a new team. He remains a dynasty stash at least. Herndon's departure from the Jets also positions Tyler Kroft as the #1 TE there.

Update: The Vikings sent a 4th-round pick to New York in exchange for Herndon and a 6th-rounder.

Jets QB Zach Wilson enjoyed a nice outing in Saturday's 2nd preseason contest at Green Bay. He completed 9 of 11 passes for 128 yards and a pair of TDs, finding TE Tyler Kroft for scores both early in the 2nd quarter and inside the final 2 minutes of the 1st half. Those were Kroft's only 2 targets of the game. WR Corey Davis claimed 6 targets among Wilson's other 10 attempts (including 1 negated by penalty). RB Tevin Coleman, WR Jamison Crowder, WR Jeff Smith and TE Trevon Wesco garnered 1 target apiece.

Jets TE Chris Herndon opened training camp with the 2nd-team offense, according to multiple reports. It was TE Tyler Kroft working with the starters. This isn't a big surprise if you were paying attention to OTAs and minicamp, when Herndon was reportedly out-played by both Kroft and TE Ryan Griffin. At this point, Herndon is only draftable at the tail end of deep best-ball drafts. We'll see if he can turn things around over the next month.

Jets TE Chris Herndon "failed to separate himself" from the rest of the team's TEs in OTAs and minicamp, according to The Athletic's Connor Hughes. In fact, Hughes says that both Tyler Kroft and Ryan Griffin looked better and have worked ahead of Herndon lately. We're still over 2 months away from Week 1, so the situation is far from settled. But it's not the report you were looking for if hoping for a bounce-back season from Herndon. We'll see if he can turn it around in August.

The Bills have placed CB Josh Norman on the COVID list after he tested positive. Buffalo has also placed TE Tyler Kroft, CB Levi Wallace and S Dean Marlowe on the list as close contacts. They won't travel for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. That removes a starting corner (Wallace) and the potential replacement for S Micah Hyde if Hyde turns up inactive. He's questionable after sustaining an ankle injury Thursday that kept him out of Friday's practice. So Buffalo could be facing Arizona down 2 of its top 3 outside CBs and starting a 3rd-stringer at safety.

Bills WR Dawson Knox (calf) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. Tyler Kroft gets another game as Buffalo’s lead TE but isn’t a fantasy option.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams. Tyler Kroft will step in as Buffalo's lead TE but isn't a fantasy option. Knox's absence could mean an extra target or 2 for WRs Stefon Diggs and John Brown.

Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s set to make his Bills debut against the Dolphins on Sunday. Kroft’s return dings TE Dawson Knox’s outlook. We’ll see how snaps and targets are divvied between the 2.

Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to make his Bills debut against the Dolphins this weekend. TE Dawson Knox has been impressive so far, but Kroft's return adds risk to the rookie's fantasy outlook.

Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Rookie TE Dawson Knox broke out with a 3-67-1 line last week and should play a significant role again on Sunday. But he remains just a fantasy flier in a tough Week 4 matchup.

Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) is out for this weekend’s game against the Bengals. He was all set to return from his broken foot but sprained his ankle in Thursday’s practice. Buffalo reportedly believes he has a shot to play next week.

11:09am EDT 9/15/19

Bills TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. TE Dawson Knox will again serve as Buffalo’s primary pass-catching TE but isn’t a fantasy option.

Bills TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Giants after a limited week of practice. It’s an upgrade from last week, when he was listed as doubtful. We’ll see if Kroft is ready to make his Bills debut this weekend, but he shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups.

Bills TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Jets. He was able to get in 3 limited practices this week, so perhaps Kroft will be ready to make his Bills debut in Week 2. Rookie Dawson Knox figures to serve as Buffalo’s lead pass-catching TE in the opener but isn’t a fantasy option.
