There were many who were willing to draft Herndon last year despite his suspension, but he's going undrafted after a wasted 2019 season. The Jets are apparently looking to feature him in the passing game, and knowing Jamison Crowder saw 122 targets over the middle of the field last year, it'd make sense. While Adam Gase has held players back throughout his time as a head coach, Herndon should have a few streaming performances in him this year.One of the more talented tight ends in the league, but also someone who is going to play second fiddle to Rob Gronkowski. The Bucs have said they'll be running a lot more 2TE sets, but it remains to be seen. With the other receiving options they have ahead of Howard, it's tough to see a path to consistent production. If Gronkowski were to miss time, Howard would jump into the TE1 conversation.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Howard's now playing second-fiddle to Gronkowski in Tampa Bay, but they both should still be on the field quite a bit. Howard's unlikely to be anything more than a streaming candidate in potential shootouts at the tight end position though with the limited opportunity.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Herndon's breakout year was delayed by a suspension and injuries, as he barely saw the field last year. But he should be a prime target in leagues that award bonus points to tight ends, as the youngster showed in 2018 that he can be successful. Frequently targeted downfield, Herndon was one of the league leaders in air yards in 2018, and he could be one of Sam Darnold's primary targets, particularly if the truncated offseason prevents Darnold from developing chemistry with Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims. He's not a TE1 at this point, but fantasy owners should keep their eyes on him in the preseason.There are few players who have seen such a disconnect between their perceived talent and their fantasy value as Howard. Bruce Arians' system has never been friendly to tight ends, and even if it were, Howard now has to contend with Rob Gronkowski and not just Cameron Brate at the position. Howard has the skill to be an impact tight end, but absent an injury to Gronkowski, there's just no path for him this year. Hold onto him in dynasty formats, but ignore him for redraft purposes.
