2018 Fantasy Outlook
Herndon may well find himself contributing right away for a Jets team that let starting 2017 tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins walk in free agency. The rookie fourth-rounder out of Miami could have perhaps gone even higher on draft day if not for a late-season MCL tear that prevented him from strutting his stuff at the combine. Herndon is back at full health and has been participating in OTAs without any limitations, so look for the pass-catching tight end to compete for the starting gig with the likes of Clive Walford, Jordan Leggett and Eric Tomlinson.

Suspension on tap
TENew York Jets
January 9, 2019
Herndon is likely to face at least a two-game suspension after pleading guilty Wednesday to a DWI charge dating back to last June, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
ANALYSIS
Now that the legal process has wrapped up, the league office is expected to evaluate Herndon's situation and levy appropriate punishment within the next few months. While the NFL typically looks into off-field incidents such as these on a case-by-case basis, the precedent established for first offenders like Herndon facing similar charges usually results in a two-game ban.
