Tomlinson inked a one-year deal with the Broncos this offseason after playing in Baltimore in 2021. The 30-year-old tight end appeared in all 17 games, but only managed to record one catch for seven yards. Tomlinson will likely operate primarily as a blocker in Denver, so the veteran shouldn't pose much of a threat to Albert Okwuegbunam or Greg Dulcich in the tight end ranks.
Blocking is the name of Tomlinson's game, and while that skill should help him easily make the Jets' roster, it won't help him make many fantasy rosters. Chris Herndon and Jordan Leggett are both young tight ends with significantly greater receiving ability than Tomlinson, who has recorded just eight receptions in each of the past two seasons.
Tomlinson is vying for major playing time with the race for the tight end position wide open in New York. He only caught eight passes in 14 games last season, however, so Tomlinson's fantasy outlook isn't all that enticing either way.
Tomlinson could be in line for a bit more playing time early in the season thanks to Austin Seferian-Jenkins' suspension, though the Jets haven't used their tight ends much in the passing game over the past few years. Additionally, the uncertain quarterback situation likely won't allow Tomlinson to be helpful for fantasy managers, even in the deepest of leagues.
After a strong first few weeks of training camp and a stand-out performance in the first preseason game, Tomlinson was seen as a candidate to make the Eagles' 53-man roster as the team's fourth tight end. His chances improved when tight end Zach Ertz suffered a core muscle injury, keeping him out of the entire preseason, but he was eventually released in the final cuts. He was then signed to Houston's practice squad.
