Great article Johnny, your in depth analysis could not of come at a better time for my situation. Along with this article I also read the one you put out yesterday covering Jonnu Smith and it just so happens that I’m coming up on my final roster decision cut downs this Saturday and wouldn’t you know it based on my situation I have to make a decision between cutting one of either Herndon or Smith.

Unfortunately unless I can pull off a last minute trade I will have to part with one of the two guys as much as I do not want to. If I’m unable to make a trade to save myself from having to cut one of them, what would your thoughts be on which of the two is the better bet to keep?
I can tell you have Hockenson as my other TE if that would factor in at all.

I have a bad history on letting good TE’s go in the past (Ertz, Andrews, and Hooper to name a few) because I am a real aggressive fantasy player and unfortunately I never seem to have the patience to wait these guys out even though I understand that typically TE’s take a good 3+ years to really emerge. So needless to say I’m really nervous about losing another good one!

My only other option would be to cut Damien Harris at RB but I don’t know if that is the better move to make, though I do have some decent RB options in CEH, Dobbins, Drake, Carson, and Hunt. Ugh such tough calls and I do not know what to do!

Any insight you could provide would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

from an non-expert, outsiders perspective, Januu seems like the better bet. I say that almost entirely based on the objective of avoiding the Jets offense entirely. I also took Herndon in my auction last year, thinking he’d break onto the scene after his suspension, and it just never happened. Because of all of that, I ended up releasing him.

Dude, you’re crazy if you think Jonnu is a better bet…

Jonnu is a good TE, but despite the offensive woes the Jets have shown under Gase, they still seem to throw a little more than TEN does. That’s still a tight decision.

Have you considered moving Hock and keeping both? You may be able to get a nice asset back.
