Chris Herndon IV released Tuesday

Chris Herndon IV was released by the Saints Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Herndon was set to enter his first season in New Orleans after signing a contact in early August. The 26-year-old struggled in 2021, registering just four receptions in 16 games with the Vikings. Herndon likely will not carry any fantasy value in 2022.

Chris Herndon signs with New Orleans

Former Jets and Vikings TE Chris Herndon IV signs with the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Now on his third team in three years, Herdon enters a loaded tight end room that includes post-hype sleeper Adam Trautman, former QB Taysom Hill and veteran Nick Vannett. Last season, he saw just seven targets as a backup TE in Minnesota. Herndon's path to playing time won't come easy, and it's more likely than not he finds himself on the wrong side of the roster bubble to start the season.

Chris Herdon IV agrees to deal with Saints

Free-agent TE Chris Herndon IV has agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Herndon spent all of last year with the Vikings, but he wasn't able to contribute very much, even in the absence of Irv Smith Jr. He now heads to New Orleans, where he will have to compete with Adam Trautman for the starting job. It's improbable that he's fantasy relevant this year, but not impossible.

Chris Herndon catches a touchdown in Week 6 win over Panthers

Chris Herndon caught 1-of-2 targets for two yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's Week 6 victory versus Carolina.

Fantasy Impact

Herndon actually recorded his first reception of the season, which went as a two-yard score in the second quarter. Despite the touchdown grab, he is completely off the fantasy radar unless Tyler Conklin and other pass-catchers were forced to miss time.

Chris Herndon IV traded to Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings acquired TE Chris Herndon IV from the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Minnesota has reportedly been in the market for a tight end over the past few days, and they've acquired a high-ceiling player in Herndon. Irv Smith is currently hurt and Tyler Conklin just returned to practice, so Herndon will have a chance to earn some playing time out of the gate. Still, he isn't a fantasy option entering the year.
