Chris Herndon IV (hamstring) out against Cowboys in Week 6

Chris Herndon will not play against the Cowboys on Sunday, due to a hamstring injury. Head coach Adam Gase says that the tight end is week-to-week.

Fantasy Impact

Herndon will be unavailable to accrue any fantasy value in Week 6 since he has been ruled out. Remove him from your starting spot and look for another option. If your team is tight end desperate, continue rostering Herndon. Those who were looking to stream Herndon this week will likely need to cut the New York product.

Chris Herndon dealing with 'legit' hamstring injury

Chris Herndon suffered a hamstring injury when preparing to return to the field this week. When asked about the injury, head coach Adam Gase told reporters that it's a "legit hamstring injury."

Fantasy Impact

It sounds like this has Herndon very questionable for Week 6 against the Cowboys. Herndon has been stashed in many leagues coming off his suspension, but owners may need to make other arrangements for Week 6, and at minimum should monitor Herndon's practice status as the week continues.

Chris Herndon quiet in preseason loss

Chris Herndon caught one of his two targets for five yards in the Jets' preseason loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Herndon opens the season suspended, but after a quietly impressive rookie campaign, figures to be used at a good rate in 2019. Herndon is a nice upside candidate late in drafts that could pair nicely with a veteran player who could start out hot (e.g., Tyler Eifert, Delanie Walker)

Chris Herndon flashes in brief preseason action

Chris Herndon caught his only target for 32 yards in the Jets' preseason loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Despite being suspended for four games (pending an appeal), Herndon is a viable option in fantasy leagues. As a rookie, he surpassed 500 yards, which is an impressive mark, all with a sub-par offense and an extremely young, rookie QB. Herndon is primed for a big breakout in 2019 due to the lack of surrounding weapons and the potential ascendance of Sam Darnold. Don't be afraid to draft and stash Herndon if you have adequate bench spots and miss out on earlier TEs.

Chris Herndon slapped with four-game suspension

Chris Herndon has been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Fantasy Impact

The suspension stems from a driving while intoxicated charge from June, 2018 which Herndon plead guilty to last January. The suspension for this type of incident is usually two games, but it can be up to four with the presence of aggravating circumstances. He had a promising rookie season, finishing with 502 yards and four TDs and was expected to take another step forward in his second year. The other TEs on the roster are Eric Tomlinson, Daniel Brown, and 2019 4th-Round rookie Trevon Wesco. It’s unclear who will handle the majority of tight end work in Herndon’s absence, but none of the three figure to be fantasy relevant.
