New York Jets tight end Jordan Leggett is inactive in Week 2 against the Dolphins. Leggett is a healthy scratch and is behind tight ends Eric Tomlinson, Neal Sterling and rookie Christopher Herndon IV. Leggett is obviously not worth owning in fantasy leagues.
The New York Jets elected to keep tight ends Chris Herndon, Jordan Leggett, Eric Tomlinson and Neal Sterling after announcing their 53-man roster over the weekend. The surprise was not that they retained four tight ends, but that Clive Walford was cut loose. He ended up being productive in training camp and the preseason, so he's likely to land with another organization. Herndon and Leggett are both mid-round draft picks by the team over the past two years, so they were chosen to head up the corps. Herndon is likely to start, but he should only be a treated as a low-end TE2 until further notice. The others have an uphill battle to fantasy relevance.

New York Jets TE Jordan Leggett is past the knee issues that cost him all of the 2017 season, according to tight ends coach Jimmie Johnson. 'We are excited about him,' Johnson said of Leggett. 'He doesn't worry about his knee. He has those issues behind him now. So now, we can move forward and get back to playing football.'
New York Jets tight ends coach Jimmie Johnson said tight end Jordan Leggett's knee issues are behind him after he missed all of 2017. The Jets will give him a long look to compete for the main pass-catching role that Austin Seferian-Jenkins had last season. However, rookie Chris Herndon is also in the mix after catching 40 passes for 477 yards and four touchdowns in college. Herndon has been praised for his in-line blocking, though, and figures to be more of a blocker than pass catcher. Leggett is the favorite to see most of the passing targets, but he's nothing more than a weak TE2 option.
New York Jets tight ends Jordan Leggett and Chris Herndon are expected to battle for the starting job in training camp, but with no standout in the tight end room, both players may split time equally this year. Leggett missed all of last season with a knee injury and Herndon is coming off an injury of his own, so neither are very attractive fantasy options in a Jets offense that has questions at quarterback. Eric Tomlinson is the third tight end, but he's mainly useful for blocking.
New York Jets TEs Jordan Leggett and Chris Herndon will need to improve their blocking skills if they are going to receive a lot of playing time in 2018.
New York Jets TEs Chris Herndon and Jordan Leggett are expected to battle it out in training camp to be the starter at tight end, but it is likely the team ends up deciding on 'a fairly equitable workload split' between the two, according to Darryl Slater of NJ.com.
New York Jets tight end Jordan Leggett, who missed all of his rookie season after injuring his right knee in the preseason finale, says he is between 90 and 100 percent healthy entering mandatory minicamp this week. Assuming he is healthy, Leggett will compete with rookie Chris Herndon for starting tight end duties in 2018. Leggett's knee surgery was just a cleanup, and he was adamant that he didn't have any torn ligaments. He wore a brace on his knee during organized team activities and will "probably" continue to do so. New York's competition at tight end will be settled in training camp, but Leggett has a leg up on the job. Still, he's nothing more than a dart throw as a TE2 in deeper formats.
New York Jets tight end Jordan Leggett, the fifth-rounder in 2017 that missed all of last season due to a knee injury, figures to have the leg up on the starting tight end gig in 2018, although he'll be competing with Chris Herndon and Clive Walford. Herndon was drafted in the fourth round last month. Herndon is also coming off a torn MCL and will probably be limited in offseason workouts. Leggett has upside, but he has yet to play an NFL snap and will have to prove himself first before fantasy owners take notice.
New York Jets LB Jordan Leggett missed his entire rookie season last year due to a knee injury but may have a slight edge over rookie Chris Herndon for the starting tight end job, according to Darryl Slater of NJ.com.
