Herndon caught three of four targets for a team-high 34 yards in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Bills. As you probably gathered from the information above, this was another ugly afternoon for New York's passing game, this time led by Josh McCown under center with Sam Darnold out due to a foot injury. Despite the dysfunction around him, Herndon continues to show flashes of potential as a rookie.
Herndon caught all four of his targets for a team-high 62 yards in Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Dolphins. Herndon saw his three-game touchdown streak come to a close, but he still produced a positive result with a new career high in receiving yards. While rookie quarterback Sam Darnold seems to have stalled over the past few weeks, New York's rookie tight end continues to develop. Herndon will look to build on this performance when the Bills come to town in Week 10.
Herndon caught one of two targets for a 16-yard touchdown in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Bears. Herndon made his lone reception count, getting into the end zone for the third consecutive week. The rookie tight end is starting to work his way onto the redraft league radar, and he should certainly have the attention of keeper- and dynasty-league owners given his recent touchdown binge. He'll look to extend his touchdown streak in Week 9 against the Dolphins.
Herndon caught four of seven targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Vikings. Herndon's starting to make a name for himself with a touchdown in back-to-back games. He scored from 12 yards out in the first quarter in Week 7, and the rookie tight end should continue to see heavy involvement in New York's passing attack with the injury bug biting some of the team's other skill players. Herndon will try to stretch his touchdown streak to three contests against the Bears in Week 8.
Herndon caught his lone target for 18 yards in Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Jaguars. Herndon also watched fellow young tight end Jordan Leggett score New York's only touchdown of the game from two yards out. After getting plenty of hype in camp at a position of need for the Jets, the rookie fourth-rounder has failed to deliver much on the field. Herndon should sink further into obscurity once starter Neal Sterling (concussion) is ready to return, though there's no guarantee that happens in Week 5 against the Broncos.
