Jets list inactives for preseason game No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) The following players will not dress for the Jets against the Bengals Saturday night: Wide receiver Eric Decker, tight end Jeff Cumberland, wide receiver Shaq Evans, tackle Markus Zusevics, cornerback Dexter McDougle, running back Chris Ivory, cornerback Dee Milliner, cornerback Dimitri Patterson and wide reciever Jalen Saunders.

Are Jets the right place for Jace Amaro?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/2014) There is no doubt that Jace Amaro has the potential to be a Day 1 starter for the Jets and work as a mismatch-style tight end, albeit not to the level of Jimmy Graham or even Jason Witten. But if he can beat out the likes of Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld -- not tough competition -- then Amaro could develop into a much-needed piece of the offense as a short-area outlet for their quarterbacks. 

It's going to take a training camp and preseason full of glowing reports and highlights for him to gain traction with the Fantasy universe. If it happens then he'll be worth considering with a late pick as a sleeper. Otherwise he'll be available off waivers in seasonal leagues. In long-term formats he's worth that late pick and is a late second to early third-round choice in rookie-only drafts. 


Jets draft Jace Amaro


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 49 pick in the NFL Draft, the Jets selected tight end Jace Amaro from Texas Tech. 

Working in the school's spread offense, Amaro used his 6-foot-5, 265-pound body, 4.7 speed and his big, soft hands to put up some solid numbers (1,352 receiving yards last year, second only to Michael Crabtree in school history).

Amaro has the chance for immediate playing time with the Jets having just Jeff Cumberland and Zach Sudfeld as the top two tight ends on their roster. 


Jeff Cumberland contract for three years


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) The contract signed by Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland will run three years, the New York Daily News has reported. It is worth $3.7 million excluding incentives with $1 million guaranteed.

Report: Jeff Cumberland signs three-year deal with Jets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) The Jets have agreed to terms on a three-year deal with tight end Jeff Cumberland on Friday, the New York Daily News reports. Cumberland, 26, led the team with four touchdown receptions last season. He had 26 catches on 40 targets for 398 yards in 15 games.

Jets and TE Jeff Cumberland close to deal?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) The Jets and free-agent-to-be tight end Jeff Cumberland are in "serious negotiations" about agreeing to a new contract, the New York Daily News reports. 

Cumberland caught 26 passes for 398 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games last season. 


Jets, Jeff Cumberland talking deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) The Jets are in contract talks with free agent tight end Jeff Cumberland, reports the New York Daily News. Cumberland led the team with four touchdown catches, and "the organization is bullish on Cumberland’s ability to take the next step in his fifth season," the paper said.

Assuming Kellen Winslow doesn't return, Cumberland could enter 2014 as the starter.


Jeff Cumberland not viewed as starter material


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland was a pleasant surprise who led the team with four touchdown catches, but he "won’t be someone for defenses to game plan against," reports USA Today, which calls Cumberland a nice No. 2 option. Cumberland and veteran tight end Kellen Winslow are entering free agency.

The paper says the Jets must add a pass-catching tight end this offseason.


Jets tight ends haul in one pass each


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Jets only got two receptions from their tight ends Sunday, but they did manage to break loose for long gains on each one in a 20-7 win over the Dolphins.

Jeff Cumberland and Kellen Winslow each caught one pass in the game, though Winslow was targeted three times in the passing game, while Cumberland only had two passes thrown his way. Winslow's reception was slightly longer, as he went for 34 yards, compared to Cumberland's 30-yard reception.

Cumberland was the more productive of the duo this season, finishing with 26 receptions for 398 yards and four touchdowns. Winslow had 31 catches for 388 yards, and managed to score just twice. 


Three Jets make minor contributions to win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) A trio of Jets skill position players contributed to a victory Sunday against Cleveland, led by two disappointing veterans. Tight end Kellen Winslow caught three passes for 35 yards while wide receiver Santonio Holmes added two receptions for 20 yards.

Tight end Jeff Cumberland chipped in two catches for 30 yards.


Jeff Cumberland gets back on track with TD grab


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland, who was held out of the stat sheet his last time out, got back on track as he caught his fourth touchdown of the season during Sunday's loss to the Panthers in Week 15.

With the game well out of hand, Cumberland came down with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Geno Smith in the fourth quarter. He was targeted four times and finished with three catches for 50 yards and a touchdown in a 30-20 defeat.

Cumberland has two touchdowns over his last five games. He has only eight catches for 90 yards over that span. He'll look to remain productive at home against the Browns in Week 16.

Jeff Cumberland invisible as offense collapses


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland barely made an impact in Week 13, in a 23-3 loss to the Dolphins Sunday.

Cumberland was targeted three times in the game, and was able to haul in just one pass for 6 yards. He enters Week 14 against the Raiders with fewer than 10 yards in three of the last four games. 


Jeff Cumberland faces good matchup vs. Dolphins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland hasn't played a big role in the team's offense over the last few games, but that could change in a big way in Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Cumberland has just five catches for 43 yards over the last three games, though he did catch the team's lone receiving touchdown during that stretch. He could find some rare success this Sunday, however, as the Dolphins' defense has been one of the worst in the league against tight ends.

Only one team has allowed more than the 10.4 Fantasy points per game the Dolphins allow this season. They have surrendered eight touchdowns to tight ends, including two over the last two weeks.

Cumberland's modest production (19 catches for 282 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games) makes him tough to rely on for Fantasy purposes. But, if you need a high-upside play, a matchup against the Dolphins might make Cumberland worth taking a chance on. 


Jeff Cumberland takes back seat


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Though he was quarterback Geno Smith's preferred target at tight end in Kellen Winslow's return from a four-game suspension last week, catching a touchdown pass, Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland played a minimal role in the passing game Week 12 at Baltimore. His two targets came on back-to-back drives in the third quarter. He caught one for 9 yards.

Winslow, meanwhile, tied for second on the team with four targets. He had two catches for 34 yards.

Cumberland will try to regain Smith's favor Week 13 against the Dolphins.


Jeff Cumberland remains go-to tight end


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/19/2013) Even with Kellen Winslow returning from a four-game absence for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy Week 11 at Buffalo, Jeff Cumberland was the tight end playing 47 percent of the snaps for the Jets. Winslow played only 19 percent of the snaps and told The Star-Ledger he was fine with the reduced role.

"Whatever my role is to help the team, that's what's asked of me and that's what I'm doing," Winslow said. "Things change during the season. People get hurt. Things change."

Though coach Rex Ryan didn't rule out playing Winslow more Week 12 at Baltimore, Cumberland appears to have cemented his place as the go-to tight end and further validated it with a 13-yard touchdown grab last week.

He likely won't contribute huge numbers against the Ravens, who rank in the middle of the pack against the pass and have allowed the 12th-most Fantasy points per game to tight ends. He likely won't contribute huge numbers any week. But of the two Jets tight ends, he's the one you might consider using in a dire situation.


Jeff Cumberland hauls in touchdown in return from injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland tied a career high with his third receiving touchdown during a 37-14 loss Week 11 at Buffalo. Cumberland finished with three catches for 25 yards.

Cumberland did most of his damage in the fourth quarter after Matt Simms replaced an ineffective Geno Smith. Cumberland caught two passes for 23 yards on Simms' first drive in the fourth quarter, which ended in a 13-yard touchdown for Cumberland, who also had three touchdowns last season.

Cumberland, who returned from a one-game absence because of a concussion, was targeted four times in the loss. The Jets are back in action Week 12 at Baltimore.


Jeff Cumberland back in lineup for Jets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland returned to the lineup Week 11 at Buffalo after sitting out one game with a concussion. Cumberland was listed as probable after practicing in full all week.

Jets list 10 offensive players as probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Ten Jets placed on Friday injury report should play Sunday against Buffalo. They are all listed as probable.

The offensive probables are lineman Willie Colon (calf), wide receivers Greg Salas (knee), Santonio Holmes (foot/hamstring), Stephen Hill (foot/knee) and Josh Cribbs (knee), tight ends Kellen Winslow (knee), Zach Sudfeld (knee) and Jeff Cumberland (concussion) and running backs Chris Ivory (knee) and Alex Green (hamstring).


Jeff Cumberland: I'm ready to roll in Week 11


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland has cleared concussion protocol and plans on playing Sunday in Buffalo, according to Newsday. He only missed one game and benefitted from the bye week in his recovery process.

Cumberland will likely not receive the playing time provided him when Kellen Winslow was out on a four-game drug suspension. Winslow has been activated and is also expected to play against the Bills.


Jets tight ends not recommended Fantasy options Week 11


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2013) Jets quarterback Geno Smith has been down a few targets in the passing game recently, whether it's been due to injury or suspension. Well, good news is that Smith is about to get a few options in the passing game back Week 11 at Buffalo, which could include tight ends Jeff Cumberland (concussion) and Kellen Winslow (suspension).

Cumberland might be a little more iffy at this stage than Winslow, who was added back to the active roster Monday. Even if both players return Week 11, it's not an ideal matchup. 

In 10 games against Buffalo, tight ends average 35.7 receiving yards and 5.4 Fantasy points per game, which is tied for the fifth-lowest average. Tight ends have totaled four touchdowns against Buffalo.

Cumberland had three catches for 26 yards and Winslow had no catches during a 27-20 win Week 3 against the Bills. Neither player is a recommended Fantasy option Week 11, so consider using a better alternative.


Jeff Cumberland doesn't make it into lineup Week 9


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) was ruled inactive Week 9 vs. New Orleans. Cumberland was officially on the injury report as questionable with a concussion, but the New York Post reported Sunday morning Cumberland was being evaluated for a second injury.

Konrad Rueland drew the start in Cumberland's absence.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
