Player Outlook

Griffin signed in Chicago this offseason, and he's expected to be the No. 2 tight end behind Cole Kmet. Griffin has minimal Fantasy value in that role, and he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. In nine seasons with the Jets and Texans, Griffin has never averaged more than 7.5 PPR points per game. At best, Griffin can be added off the waiver wire if he proves to make an impact with the Bears early in the season.

Player News
  • Griffin is signing a one-year contract with the Bears, Mark Grote of WSCR Radio reports. Griffin has 67 career starts in 119 regular-season games but likely will fill a depth role with the Bears behind 2020 second-round pick Cole Kmet, who showed signs of progress in the second half of last season. Griffin, meanwhile, caught 27 of 42 targets for 261 yards and two TDs in 14 games (12 starts) for the Jets. He turned 32 earlier this offseason and has never reached 500 yards in a season.

  • New York released Griffin on Monday, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports. Griffin's release comes as little surprise after the Jets brought in two tight ends in free agency in C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin, who were both on track to slot in ahead of him on the depth chart. The Jets will clear $3 million in cap space by moving on from Griffin, who recorded 27 receptions for 261 yards and two touchdowns on 42 targets over 14 games in 2021.

  • Griffin (knee) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Griffin already was on injured reserve and lost for the season due to a knee injury, so his placement on the COVID-19 list won't impact the Jets' game plan this Sunday. Tyler Kroft remains in line to take over as New York's starting tight end.

  • New York placed Griffin (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Griffin will miss the Jets' remaining three games of the season after sustaining the knee injury in New York's Week 15 loss to Miami. Though he's the only player on the Jets roster to record a catch in each of the team's first 14 games, Griffin's overall 27-261-2 receiving line didn't translate to much fantasy utility. His absence paves the way for Tyler Kroft to serve as the Jets' clear top tight end during the season's final stanza.

  • Head coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Griffin is likely to sit out the team's Week 16 game against the Jaguars due to a knee injury, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports. Before the Jets formally rule Griffin out for Week 16, he'll undergo further tests on his knee over the next couple of days. He likely picked up the injury at some point during Sunday's loss in Miami, where he played a season-low 39 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps and finished with two receptions for 39 yards on two targets. Tyler Kroft, who made his return against the Dolphins after a five-game absence due to a lung laceration, should take on a larger share of the snaps at tight end Week 16.
