TE - BAL
Week 12 Outlook
Tight end Eric Tomlinson re-signed with the New York Giants on Sunday, one day after being cut.
Tomlinson appeared in eight games for multiple teams last season, including the Giants, and caught exactly one pass for one yard. He is unlikely to have any fantasy value in 2020 and would likely need multiple injuries to occur for him to see regular playing time.
TE Eric Tomlinson announced on Instagram that he has signed a deal with the New York Giants.
The run-blocking specialist lands back in New York after playing games for three teams in 2019, Oakland, New England, and the Giants. Prior to last season, Tomlinson had played three seasons with the Jets, only catching 16 balls for 193 yards and one touchdown. He’ll be a nice addition to what the Giants are trying to do on offense that features star RB Saquon Barkley.
Eric Tomlinson caught all five of his targets for 40 yards in the Jets' preseason win over the Eagles.
Tomlinson is not normally known as a pass-catching tight end, and is unlikely to be deployed in this way much after Chris Herndon returns from suspension. Tomlinson does not have enough upside or longevity to be drafted in fantasy leagues.
Eric Tomlinson caught his only target for two yards in the Jets' preseason loss to the Giants.
There is really no value in Tomlinson for fantasy purposes, even with Chris Herndon suspended. Tomlinson will mainly be deployed as a blocker, which doesn't score fantasy points in most leagues.
Eric Tomlinson caught two of his three targets for 15 yards in the Jets' Week 5 win over the Broncos.
Every week, the Jets have a different TE leading in the box score, and none of them are seeing many targets. Stay away from the entire position group.
