TE - DEN
This Week Outlook
Jordan Leggett caught his only target for 10 yards in the Jets' Week 5 win over the Broncos.
After scoring a touchdown in Week 4, Leggett returned to irrelevance. The Jets have a different TE leading the way each week, and none of them are viable unless they score. Stay away entirely.
Jordan Leggett caught three of his four targets for 13 yards and a score in the Jets' Week 4 loss to the Jaguars.
The TE position for the Jets has been a revolving door thus far, leaving fantasy owners unable to trust anyone on the team at the position. Leggett should be added to a watch list only, if even that.
Sam Neumann of the Jets Wire for USA Today is reporting that TE Jordan Leggett suffered an injury in training camp today. No details on the injury have been provided.
Neumann and many others thought Leggett might become the starting TE for the Jets, but with his setback in camp, that might not be the case. If Christopher Herndon or Neal Sterling step up and take the job, Leggett could just as quickly be irrelevant again. While Herndon may be facing a suspension, it's no guarantee at this point that Leggett will open as the starter. On an offense with few weapons, whoever earns the job could see enough targets to have fantasy value, but Leggett hasn't exactly closed his grip on the job.
Leggett has said that the Jets' new offensive coordinator, John Morton, is a big fan of tight ends and making them the "go-to guy" in the offense. With no clear starter at the position, former Clemson tight end Leggett could be that guy.
The Jets have question marks all over their team, from the lack of a quality starting quarterback to which running back to draft all the way to their lackluster defense. Leggett won't be playing for Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady, but he has a chance to be a focal point of the offense, which is valuable, fantasy-wise, on any team. You seldom see the top targets on the waiver wire, no matter how bad the offense is. Eric Decker will likely be the top target on this team, but Leggett can compete with Quincy Enunwa, considering the offense might run through the tight end position.
The New York Jets have selected former Clemson tight end Jordan Leggett with the 150th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Leggett will join a Jets offense that hasn't had a reliable tight end in the passing game since Dustin Keller. However, Leggett is not the most impressive receiver and will likely be better suited as a No. 2 or No. 3 tight end in the NFL.
