Tomlinson had eight receptions for 72 yards in 15 games last year for the Jets. He was No. 3 on the depth chart much of the year and did not get much work in that role. He has eight receptions each of his first two seasons in the NFL. Expect a similar deep reserve role for the Jets this season. Tomlinson will make some plays in the passing game, but his biggest asset is as a blocker, helping both the running and passing games.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Tomlinson just doesn't get the work to help fantasy teams. He will help the Jets rushing attack but will provide little as a receiver. He could get around 10 catches for 100 yards with a score.
