Player Outlook
Until Manhertz finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • 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: 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.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Signs with Jags

    Manhertz is signing a two-year, $7.25 million contract with the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The deal includes $4.25 million guaranteed, a nice sum for a blocking specialist. Manhertz has 12 receptions on 1,531 offensive snaps in 70 NFL appearances.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Completes fifth season

    Manhertz finished the 2020 season with six catches on eight targets for 52 yards in 16 games played. Manhertz once again filled a blocking role within Carolina's offense, only catching a few passes on the year. Having been with the Panthers all five years of his career, it'll be interesting to see whether the veteran returns to the team in free agency this offseason.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Catches one pass

    Manhertz caught his lone target for 11 yards in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Vikings. Manhertz, whose specialty is blocking, is yet to make multiple receptions in a game this season, but his one grab Sunday at least got him on the stat sheet.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Gearing up Sunday

    Manhertz (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Lions, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports. Manhertz will avoid missing his first game since Week 5 of the 2019 season. The 28-year-old tight end has recorded five receptions for 41 yards through 10 games this year, as he mainly sticks to a special-teams role.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Questionable for Week 11

    Marhertz (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Manhertz hasn't yet missed a game this season, but it looks like he isn't a lock to suit up versus Detroit. The veteran tight end hasn't had more than one catch in a single contest this season, so it's safe to say that he remains off the fantasy radar.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Held back in practice Thursday

    Manhertz (shoulder) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice session, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. The 28-year-old wideout from Canisius has been active for each of the Panthers' 10 games this season, fielding a healthy 31.4 offensive snaps per game while registering six starts. An appearance on the injury report marks Manhertz's first of the campaign. He proved to be remarkably durable coming into this season, suiting up for 47 of the Panthers' 48 games between 2017 and 2019. Thus far in 2020, he has produced five receptions for 41 yards.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Hauls in target

    Manhertz caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers. Manhertz has now hauled in a pass in back-to-back games, and although that light involvement has only yielded 12 yards in total, his production doesn't differ much from starting tight end Ian Thomas' two grabs for 16 yards thus far.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Catches lone look

    Manhertz caught his only target for four yards in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders. Manhertz filled his usual blocking role for the vast majority of Sunday's contest, but he at least made the stat sheet with a grab in the second quarter.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Fills blocking role in 2019

    Manhertz finished the 2019 season with one catch for 11 yards across 15 games. Manhertz has featured in all but one game for the Panthers over the past three seasons, but he's never finished with more than two receptions in a given campaign. The veteran is a blocking specialist at tight end and should work in that capacity again if he breaks camp with the Panthers in 2020.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Catches first pass

    Manhertz caught his only target for 11 yards in Sunday's 40-20 loss to the Falcons. The fourth-year tight end has played in all but one game this season, but needed until Week 14 -- and a Greg Olsen (concussion) absence -- to make his first reception. Considering he boasts just six grabs in his career, it's well established by now that Manhertz is a blocking tight end and not a reliable fantasy option.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Questionable for Week 6

    Manhertz (concussion) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports. Manhertz is working to recover from a concussion, and he's managed to practice in full all week. If he's able to successfully clear the league's protocol for head injuries before Sunday's contest, including receiving clearance from an independent neurologist, he'll play his usual depth role on Carolina's offense.

  • Panthers' Chris Manhertz: Won't play Sunday

    Manhertz (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Manhertz wasn't able to clear concussion protocol, so he'll miss his first game since entering the league in 2017. He's deployed mainly in a blocking role, so his absence will affect the Panthers' run game more than their pass game. Manhertz will look to shake this injury ahead of Week 6's game versus the Buccaneers.
