If you started Herndon last week because of what we talked about here, I'm sorry. I was right there with you. We were quickly reminded what it's like to play a Jets skill-position player and we instantly regret it. But when he caught 6-of-7 targets in Week 1, and then we found out that Jamison Crowder and Le'Veon Bell wouldn't play, the vital signs were good. Four targets, one catch, and five yards later, we're wondering what happened. Now on to play the Colts, who have allowed just 11 yards to tight ends this year... on seven targets. They weren't a matchup to target with tight ends last year, as they allowed just one tight end all year finish with more than 14.0 PPR points, and none of them finished with more than 73 yards. It's hard saying Herndon doesn't have any appeal considering the targets have to go somewhere, but as we found out last week, it's hardly a guarantee they go his way. It does help that the Colts just placed Malik Hooker on injured reserve, which hurts their safety combo. Herndon should remain in the TE2 conversation, but it's tough to trust anyone on this team right now.Some will wonder if Claypool is the add off the waiver wire after his big catch last week, but he's still trailing Washington in the pecking order. Claypool ran 13 routes while Washington ran 22 of them. This is not a team that runs 4WR sets, so we're going to have to wait for one of them to emerge before relying on either of them as anything more than a big play or bust WR5/6-type option. For now, the better option is Washington, but knowing the Texans have faced just 18.0 receiver targets per game, it's tough to say either of them are good bets.

Herndon had an incredible opportunity in front of him last week with essentially every receiver out of the lineup and he failed to deliver. Herndon's nothing more than a TE2 moving forward.
