Jets' Ryan Griffin: Two catches in shutout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 24-0 loss to Miami.

Griffin was actually New York's most productive tight end with Chris Herndon failing to record a catch, but that's not saying much. While Griffin has five catches to Herndon's three over the past three games, neither tight end is doing enough to warrant attention in the fantasy realm, even considering the league-wide dearth of production from the position.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Gets first catches of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin caught all three of his targets for 10 yards in Thursday's 37-28 loss to the Broncos.

Griffin made his first catches of the season after failing to record one over the first three games, but none of his receptions went for more than four yards. The backup tight end continues to serve predominantly in a blocking role.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: No catches on two targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin failed to corral either of his two targets in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Colts.

Griffin saw his first two targets of the season, with the Jets dressing only four wide receivers due to injuries, but the backup tight end couldn't haul in either one. As long as Chris Herndon remains healthy in front of Griffin, the latter is unlikely to make much of an impact.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Still without a target this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the 49ers.

Griffin hasn't had a ball thrown his way through two games. New York could go to more formations with multiple tight ends against the Colts in Week 3 given all of the team's injuries at wide receiver, but Griffin hasn't shown the ability to convert playing time into production.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Non-factor in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin was not targeted in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bills.

With Chris Herndon healthy, Griffin has been relegated to backup tight end duties. Herndon had six catches in Buffalo and will be the only tight end seeing significant attention from quarterback Sam Darnold as long as he's on the field.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Taken off PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets (ankle) activated Griffin from the active/PUP list Saturday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Griffin took the practice field for the first time in training camp, as he was recovering from a December ankle injury. It looks like Chris Herndon will secure the No. 1 tight-end job, but Griffin is a steady backup and produced a 34-320-5 line with Herndon out of the picture last year.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (ankle) has been placed on the active/Physically Unable to Perform list, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Griffin continues to recover from an ankle procedure, but once he's healthy, the 30-year-old will look to secure his role in the Jets' passing game. The looming return of Chris Herndon limits Griffin's fantasy upside heading into the 2020 season, but when pressed into expanded duty last year, Griffin put up a 34-320-5 stat line in 13 games.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Jets pick up 2021 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (ankle) had his option for 2021 picked up by the Jets on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The 30-year-old had 34 receptions for 320 yards and five touchdowns through 13 starts before going down with the ankle injury in early December, and it appears the Jets are happy to keep him around for the next couple years. Griffin subsequently underwent surgery and is in the midst of an expected six-month recovery, so he should be healthy for the beginning of training camp.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Facing difficult recovery process
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (ankle) anticipates a six-month recovery timeline for the surgery he had last week, Rich Cimini of reports.

Griffin is unlikely to participate in the early portion of the offseason program but could get back on the field before training camp. He mentioned that the ligament damage he suffered was so significant that his rehab timeline actually would be shorter if he had simply broken his ankle. While that doesn't sound especially promising, the Jets will give Griffin every opportunity to work his way back to full strength, having signed him to a three-year, $9.6 million extension in November. He'll turn 30 in January and may need to compete with soon-to-be 24-year-old Chris Herndon (ribs) for the starting job in 2020.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (ankle) has been placed on IR by the Jets.

The Jets have elected to shut Griffin down with just three games left in the regular season. In his absence, Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco are next up for the team's tight end looks, though neither player is a high-percentage lineup roll in the fantasy playoffs.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Won't face Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Ravens, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

After picking up the ankle issue during the Jets' Week 14 win over the Dolphins, Griffin wasn't able to practice in any capacity ahead of Thursday's tilt. The Jets will operate with Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco at tight end in Week 15.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Not practicing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (ankle) will be held out of practice Tuesday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Griffin played only three snaps on offense before departing the Jets' Week 14 matchup with the Dolphins. The ankle issue hasn't allowed him to practice yet this week and appears to be threatening his status for Thursday's game at Baltimore. If he's among the team's inactives, Griffen will yield TE reps to a combination of Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: DNP on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice report.

Like many Jets, Griffin came down with an illness last week but still suited up this past Sunday against the Dolphins. However, he lasted just three offensive snaps before suffering a game-ending ankle injury. With a short turnaround to the team's next contest Thursday at Baltimore, Griffin is in a tough spot to be active Week 15, which could result in increased usage for fellow tight ends Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Won't return to Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Prior to his exit, Griffin caught his only target for eight yards. Next up for the team's tight end looks in his absence are Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Leaves with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin is doubtful to return to Sunday's divisional contest against the Dolphins due to an ankle injury.

Griffin was forced out of Sunday's contest early in the first quarter. He caught his only target for eight yards before going into the locker room. Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco will serve as the Jets' only healthy tight ends as long as Griffin is unable to play.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Suits up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Griffin is out there if you need him this week and figures to see his share of targets Sunday, coming off a Week 13 effort against the Bengals, in which he hauled in five of his seven looks for 30 yards. In his two outings prior to that, Griffin found the end zone in back-to-back contests, while overall he's made five trips to the end zone through 12 games.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Status in question for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Rich Cimini of reports.

One of three players on the Jets' Week 14 injury report listed with an illness, Griffin looks to be trending toward playing Sunday after at least managing limited showings in practice Thursday and Friday. If Griffin's condition ultimately takes a turn for the worse ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, the Jets would turn to Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco to handle all the snaps at tight end.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (illness) will return to a limited practice Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Griffin sat out practice Wednesday, so his return to the field Thursday puts him on track to play Sunday against the Dolphins. Friday's final injury report will reveal whether the tight end will head into the weekend listed as questionable or free from a Week 14 injury designation.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Feeling ill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin will miss Wednesday's practice due to an illness, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

The 29-year-old still has plenty of time to shake of the illness and return to health before Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Griffin has emerged as a low-end TE1 in many fantasy leagues, scoring eight or more PPR points five of the past six weeks.

Jets' Ryan Griffin: Five catches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin caught five of seven targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Bengals.

Griffin recorded his third game with at least five catches this season, all of which have come in the past five games. New York couldn't get into the end zone in this one, so the tight end's modest touchdown streak came to an end at two games. Given the lack of quality alternatives at the position, Griffin should be in the TE1 mix when the Dolphins come to town in Week 14.
