Last year was supposed to be huge for Chris Herndon, but like the rest of the Jets offense, it all went wrong. First, Herndon had to serve a suspension for four games and then he got hurt almost immediately when he returned. There is reason to be a little excited as this offense actually had Ryan Griffin producing good numbers at points last year and Herndon is a far more exciting tight end. That said, we need to see Herndon on the field to make sure the end of the 2018 season was no flash in the pan, and he's got Jamison Crowder, Le'Veon Bell, Breshad Perriman and rookie Denzel Mims to contend with. Not to mention the uncertain play of quarterback Sam Darnold who also had a rotten 2019. Herndon has a ton of upside but this offense and the tight end himself, have a lot to prove before we invest anything but a late pick in him for fantasy. He's got intriguing upside but a lot of question marks. (May 7)
