The New York Jets have a length injury report in Week 15, and tight end is particularly bad. They face the Baltimore Ravens and a few weeks removed from Chris Herndon going on injured reserve, the team will be without his backup, Ryan Griffin, due to an ankle injury.

Griffin was questionable in Week 14 due to an illness but ended up active. He injured his ankle early in the first quarter and did not return. He was a DNP all week and his status for Week 16 and beyond is unclear. Daniel Brown will start in his place. Brown had one catch for seven yards on two targets in place of Griffin this past Sunday.

Fantasy football analysis: Jets tight ends

Brown is not worth rostering, let alone starting in fantasy football. Griffin had modest value, but even he was limited in that regard. Robby Anderson, Jamison Crowder, and Le’Veon Bell are the three most valuable fantasy options at Sam Darnold’s disposal on Thursday Night Football.
