Tomlinson caught eight of 11 targets for 121 yards and one touchdown during the 2017 season. Tomlinson was primarily used as a run blocker during his 14 appearances this season, and with Austin Seferian-Jenkins an unrestricted free agent, it seems pretty likely that the Jets will try to bring the former, a restricted free agent, back. Nevertheless, even if he moves up the depth chart ahead of the 2018 season, there's little reason to believe he'll become a usable asset in most fantasy formats.
Tomlinson scored a 20-yard touchdown on his lone target during Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Falcons. Austin Seferian-Jenkins has dominated the tight end targets this season, and while Tomlinson was able to find the end zone Sunday, the former still finished with five catches on five targets for 28 yards. Used more for blocking than pass catching, Tomlinson's fantasy value remains low despite Sunday's score.
Tomlinson (elbow) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Tomlinson, who missed the past two games with an ailing elbow, was a full participant in practice Friday and appears to be good to go moving forward. However, as the No. 2 tight end on a desolate Jets offense, his upside is extremely limited.
Tomlinson (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Meanwhile, Jordan Leggett is doubtful and Will Tye is questionable, but the Jets' tight end corps will at least be bolstered in Week 3 by the return to the mix of Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
Tomlinson (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday. Tomlinson hasn't practiced since sustaining the injury in the season opener against the Bills. Jordan Leggett (knee) also failed practice Wednesday, and if both remain out in Week 3 against the Dolphins, Will Tye and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is back from suspension, will likely share the snaps at tight end.
