Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Herndon has been a huge disappointment this year. So should we expect anything out of him this week? Probably not. His median performance this season (2.5) ranks 41st in the NFL, below both Tennessee's backups, Anthony Firkser and Tyler Eifert. Herndon will keep getting mentioned as a streamer because of his athletic profile and his starting role, but players in Adam Gase-led offenses are easy fades. Stream someone else this week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Hooper continues to see targets in this offense and he's now moving into must-start territory at the tight end position. Fire up Hooper as a low-end TE1 this week against the Bengals.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
You might be wondering if Herndon played in Week 6 after seeing the box score, but I can assure you that he did. He was on the field for 45 snaps while Griffin played 26 of them, though it was Griffin who was targeted three times while Herndon saw none. It stinks that we can't trust either of them because tight ends have been targeted 28.3 percent of the time against the Bills, which is the second-highest mark in the league, so targets have been funneled there. There have been four tight ends who've scored 17-plus PPR points against them through just six games. But still, you cannot trust either of these tight ends with the way they've played this year.
