Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
2015
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.
