|A two-game suspension for Herndon stemming from a DUI conviction makes Herndon a player to avoid in most drafts unless owners play in leagues deep enough to carry two tight ends. As a rookie, Herndon finished the season as the No.18 tight end in fantasy points per game, just six-tenths of a point behind Greg Olsen for TE12.
The former fourth-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft out of the University of Miami proved to be a championship winning streamer last year, with six catches for 82 yards and a touchdown at a position void of many strong performances.
While he may be someone to avoid in drafts, Herndon does have streaming value this season and could once again flirt with TE1 status.
| Bell, Herndon expected to play for Jets|
Gase: It looks good

|The Jets expect RB Le'Veon Bell (knee/ankle) and TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) to play Sunday against the Giants. "It looks good," coach Adam Gase said. It will be Herndon's season debut. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The fantasy community has been overly obsessed with TE Chris Herndon going back to the pre-season. He'll finally make his debut in Week 10 and be another option at a weak position. Bell had an MRI this week but appears good to get in a decent matchup against the Giants.
| Chris Herndon unlikely to play in Week 9|

|Suspension cost Chris Herndon all of September. A hamstring injury cost him October. It's now November and the young tight end has still yet to practice fully this season.
Herndon wasn't ruled out of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, listed as questionable after continuing to practice on a limited basis on Friday, but coach Adam Gase made it sound unlikely he will play.
"I don't want to put him out there if he's not feeling good," Gase said. (New York Post)|
FFToday's Take: It will likely be the Ryan Griffin show at tight end for the Jets this week against the lowly Dolphins. Griffin finished at the TE1 in Week 8 with a 4-66-2 line but has four games this season with 1 catch or less. He's a TE2 in Week 9.

|TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) will be limited today -- his first practice of the season. Henry Anderson, Steve McLendon, Brian Winters all limited. #Jets (Rich Cimini on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Coming off his suspension, Herndon injured his hamstring and missed the last two weeks. Whether or not he suits up this week remains to be seen. Follow practice reports on Thursday and Friday for status updates on Herndon.

|#Jets TE Chris Herndon suffered a Grade 1 hamstring strain while running routes on Friday, source said, and he’s out this week and likely next week. But the belief is the pull is minor and his absence won’t be long. Herndon is waiting to make his debut because of his suspension. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Herndon injured his hamstring late last week and it appears it will cost him a couple more weeks on the sideline. The Jets have been rolling with TE Ryan Griffin while Herndon has been suspended the first four games of the season.
