  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: No targets in finale

    Manhertz played 30 of 68 offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-11 win over the Colts and didn't draw a target.

    Jacob Hollister and Luke Farrell both saw a bit more playing time, but Hollister was the only Jaguars tight end to be a factor in the passing game with three catches for 14 yards. Manhertz, who joined Jacksonville on a two-year, $6.65 million deal in March, suited up in all 17 games but finished with just six receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown. If the 29-year-old opens the 2022 season on the roster, he'll continue to serve mainly as a blocker.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: One target Week 17

    Manhertz failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 50-10 loss at New England.

    Manhertz played only 16 of 47 offensive snaps with James O'Shaughnessy (hip) sidelined, as Luke Farrell operated as the No. 1 tight end Sunday. Manhertz has only six receptions for 71 yards and one touchdown through 16 games and clearly is an afterthought in Jacksonville's passing game.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Returns from COVID list

    Manhertz (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

    Manhertz landed on the COVID-19 list Monday after testing positive for the virus, but he was able to clear the protocols and will be available for Sunday's matchup with New England. The 29-year-old is poised to operate as the Jags' No. 1 tight end since James O'Shaughnessy is sidelined by a hip injury.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Moves to COVID list

    Jacksonville placed Manhertz on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after he tested positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Manhertz wasn't targeted on 27 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Jets, and he's now looks to be at risk of missing the Jaguars' Week 17 game against the Patriots. Luke Farrell (illness) also landed on the COVID-19 list, leaving James O'Shaughnessy and Jacob Hollister as the only available tight ends on the roster.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Secures lone target

    Manhertz caught his only target for seven yards during Thursday's 24-21 loss to the Bengals.

    Manhertz started and led Jacksonville's tight ends with 24 offensive snaps, but Dan Arnold, Luke Farrell and Jacob Hollister all saw double-digit snaps. Most notable is Arnold, as he was only acquired from the Panthers on Monday and caught both his targets for 29 yards in his debut with the Jags. Manhertz should continue to play regular snaps as a blocking specialist, but Arnold should see more and more playing time as he gets more accustomed to his new offense.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Not targeted in defeat

    Manhertz wasn't targeted and played 25 offensive snaps during Sunday's 31-19 loss to Arizona.

    The 29-year-old received the start at tight end with James O'Shaughnessy (knee) on injured reserve, but Jacob Hollister ended up leading the position group with 46 offensive snaps. Hollister caught only two of six targets for 15 yards, while Luke Farrell played only 17 snaps and caught his lone target for minus-1 yard. The Jaguars clearly were unhappy with what they were seeing out of their tight ends and opted to acquire Dan Arnold from the Panthers on Monday, who will be a candidate to immediately take over the starting role.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Starting spot open

    Manhertz could have an increased role with James O'Shaughnessy (ankle) facing an indefinite absence, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Manhertz wasn't targeted and played only 27 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to Denver despite the fact O'Shaughnessy went down early with the injury. Luke Farrell caught one pass for six yards while playing 36 offensive snaps and may be the team's new top option at tight end in the passing game. Manhertz should continue to play plenty of snaps with O'Shaughnessy out, but he'll likely continue to see most of his work as a blocker.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Scores on lone target

    Manhertz caught his only target for a 22-yard touchdown during Sunday's 37-21 loss to Texans.

    The 29-year-old was expected to begin the season as the starting tight end after inking a two-year, $6.65 million deal in the offseason, but James O'Shaughnessy ended up receiving the nod. Manhertz played only 35 percent of the offensive snaps, but he still was able to secure the second touchdown of his career. He won't have much relevance in fantasy even if he takes over the starting role given the lack of receiving production throughout his career as he continues to work mostly as a blocker.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Catches lone target

    Manhertz caught his only target for 15 yards during Sunday's preseason win over the Cowboys.

    Manhertz played only eight offensive snaps and connected with Trevor Lawrence for a 15-yard gain in the first quarter. The 29-year-old played sparingly throughout the preseason and caught his only other target for five yards. Manhertz inked a two-year, $7.25 million deal with Jacksonville in March and should have a regular role in the offense, but with 12 receptions in 70 career games his outlook entering Week 1 at Houston remains that of a blocking-oriented tight end. James O'Shaughnessy may be more involved in the passing game at the position for the Jaguars.
