New York Jets tight end Eric Tomlinson had five receptions on five targets for 40 yards in the team's preseason finale Thursday vs the Eagles. It was the best game of the preseason for Tomlinson who is fighting for a roster spot to help fill in for Chris Herndon who is suspended for the first four games. The Herndon suspension bodes well for Tomlinson making the team but he won't have any fantasy value as Tomlinson is more of a blocking tight end and will share snaps with Ryan Griffin assuming he makes the team.
New York Jets tight end Eric Tomlinson only played four snaps in the team's third preseason game Saturday against the Saints. Tomlinson is expected to split time with fellow tight end Ryan Griffin while starter Chris Herndon serves his four-game suspension but didn't get much playing time and didn't see a single target. Tomlinson is more known for his blocking from the tight end position and doesn't carry any fantasy value even with Herndon out.
