Player Outlook

Tyler Kroft signed with the Jets this offseason, and he's expected to be a reserve tight end in New York. He has minimal Fantasy value in all leagues and should not be drafted. Kroft spent the past two seasons in Buffalo, and he scored just four touchdowns with 18 receptions in 21 games. With the Jets, Kroft will likely open the season behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin, and it's doubtful he will outplay those guys barring an injury.

Player News
  • Kroft worked with the No. 1 offense throughout the spring and could supplant Chris Herndon (hamstring) atop the depth chart at tight end, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. Kroft had an uneventful two years with the Bills before latching on with the Jets in March, and he's had a strong showing so far in the offseason. Kroft caught 12 of 16 targets for 119 yards and three touchdowns over 10 games in 2020, and he's had trouble staying healthy in the past three seasons. Herndon is the assumed starter entering training camp, but he's endured his own struggles and picked up a hamstring injury during mandatory minicamp. If Kroft can stay healthy he may be able to push for the starting role in training camp.

  • Kroft is signing a contract with the Jets, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. The former Bills tight end will remain in the AFC East, where he stands to play a depth role with the Jets. Kroft only had a combined 190 receiving yards across two seasons in Buffalo, but he dealt with serious injuries in that span. A full offseason to get healthy could serve him well with his new team.

  • Kroft (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's playoff game against the Ravens. With Kroft inactive again Saturday, Dawson Knox will continue to work as the Bills' top tight end versus the Ravens, with Lee Smith and Reggie Gilliam available as reserve options.

  • Kroft (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Colts. After clearing the league's COVID-19 protocols, Kroft will not suit up Saturday. Dawson Knox will continue to serve as the Bills' No. 1 tight end with Lee Smith acting as his backup.

  • Kroft, who was placed on the COVID-19 list Saturday ahead of the Bills' Week 17 finale against the Dolphins, was activated off the list Monday, Dante Lasting of the Bills' official site reports. Even though he cost a pretty penny in 2019 free agency, Kroft is a clear backup to Dawson Knox these days. However, he'll now be a depth option ahead of Saturday's playoff opener against the Colts.
