Tyler Kroft News
New York Jets tight end Tyler Kroft (back) remains out of practice on Wednesday coming off the team's Week 6 bye. Kroft missed the team's Week 5 game in London against the Atlanta Falcons and looks like he could also sit out in Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins. In his four games played in 2021, he has an uninspiring six receptions on 10 targets for 46 yards. In Kroft's absence against the Falcons, Ryan Griffin was the only tight end targeted and caught one of two targets for a measly four yards. Griffin has five more targets than Kroft on the season, but neither one of these tight ends is a realistic fantasy option in this offense run by rookie quarterback Zach Wilson right now.
New York Jets tight end Tyler Kroft (back), wide receiver Jeff Smith (concussion) and safety Adrian Colbert (concussion) have been ruled out for the Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons in London this Sunday. None of the trio will make the trip across the pond. Kroft, who has just six catches on 10 targets for 46 yards in four games, is off the fantasy radar in the majority of fantasy leagues. In his absence, Ryan Griffin will be in line for more work against Atlanta. Griffin has just one yard less than Kroft this year on seven catches (13 targets). The matchup against the Falcons is a good one, but Griffin will be a touchdown-dependent TE2 in a more prominent role this weekend.
New York Jets tight end Tyler Kroft put together some nice performances during the preseason. Sadly, he wasn't able to carry that momentum into the regular season. Quarterback Zach Wilson was pressured all game long, so he was forced to throw short passes to his tight ends. Kroft finished with three receptions on five targets for 26 yards in the loss. Backup tight end Ryan Griffin actually finished with a better game, but both tight ends saw a decent amount of targets. Despite that, fantasy managers should consider both of them as desperation TE2 for Week 2.
Tyler Kroft joined the New York Jets tight end room hoping to battle Ryan Griffin for the No. 2 job behind Chris Herndon after coming over from Buffalo on a one-year, $2 million deal in free agency. But with Herndon struggling to take the next...
