2021 Fantasy Outlook
Manhertz spent the past four seasons in Carolina and played in all but one game, though he primarily served as a blocker with a combined 11 receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown. The 29-year-old, who had his most productive campaign in 2020 with six catches for 52 yards, inked a two-year, $7.25 million deal with Jacksonville during the offseason. Manhertz should work as the Jaguars' No. 1 tight end, but he's unlikely to provide significant production in the passing game, even if he is more of a target than he has been in previous years.

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

Manhertz was placed on the PUP list after suffering a foot injury in late July, but is nearing a return halfway through the preseason. The 26-year-old looks to battle Ian Thomas for the Panthers' No. 2 tight end job behind Greg Olsen.
Manhertz is competing to win the Panthers' third tight end spot during training camp. The 25-year-old played four games for the team last season, boosting his chances of maintaining his position.
Manhertz will compete for a roster spot as a backup tight end, but the former Canisius product is unlikely to have a fantasy impact, as he's firmly behind, at a minimum, Coby Fleeer and Josh Hill on the depth chart.
Manhertz is a big tight end early enough in his playing career that he will be a candidate for the Buffalo practice squad.
