Cumberland caught four passes for 50 yards in Sunday's victory over Oakland.
A handy output on five targets; meanwhile, rookie TE Jace Amaro was limited to two catches for seven yards (four targets). Neither Jets tight end is screaming to fantasy owners, but if you have to use one right now, Cumberland deserves the call.

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.

Cumberland (Achilles) will not play in Friday's preseason game, the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports.
He has now been dealing with the sore Achilles for almost two weeks, and while the injury isn't considered serious, it's enough to keep him out of action Friday. Jace Amaro should get plenty of looks at tight end during the Jets' third preseason game.

Cumberland (Achilles) missed Monday's practice, NJ.com reports.
Cumberland exited last Tuesday's practice with soreness in his Achilles tendon and has not practiced or played since. While his condition isn't considered serious, Cumberland had surgery on his other Achilles back in 2011, so the tight end is certainly wary of coming back too early. Right now, it's unknown when Cumberland might feel comfortable to return to action, but when he does, he figures to re-assume the Jets' starting tight end position ahead of rookie Jace Amaro.

Cumberland left Tuesday's practice with tightness in his Achilles' tendon, ESPN New York reports.
Cumberland's ailment doesn't seems serious, but it's worth noting the tight end had his other Achilles' surgically repaired in 2011. As such, the veteran should be wary of his latest ailment, which could result in a few rest days. In any event, Cumberland embodies a key member of the Jets' offense, as he's currently projected as the team's starting tight end and also has the responsibility of mentoring rookie second-rounder Jace Amaro into the NFL.
