Jeff Cumberland TE NYJ 14 Days

Cumberland caught 3-of-4 targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Thursdya's 27-25 loss to the Patriots.

Cumberland turned in his finest statistical performance of the season, and it may stand as such at the end of the year. He'll likely keep starting over Jace Amaro for at least a couple more weeks, but it won't be all that surprising if the rookie eventually takes over. For now, both tight ends will be involved in the offense, with Amaro largely focused on receiving while Cumberland does a bit more work as an in-line blocker.

Cumberland is slated to start at tight end for the Jets on Sunday against the Raiders, ESPN.com reports.

Confirmation of that assignment was relayed by rookie TE Jace Amaro, who could potentially overtake Cumberland as the season progresses. For now, though, Cumberland -- who is evidently past the Achilles injury he dealt with in the preseason -- remains atop the team's depth chart at the position, which gives him modest value out of the gate in deeper formats.
