2013 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Chris Weeks

Update (10/20): Cumberland has provided more fantasy value for owners this season than Kellen Winslow. Through seven games Cumberland has fewer reception for more yards with the same number of touchdowns as Winslow. Not only has Cumberland out performed Winslow this season, but he is not serving a suspension for PED use. Owners looking for some help at TE should take a look at Cumberland.

Last year Jeff had 29 receptions for 359 yards with 3 touchdowns for the Jets. While numbers like these are a possibility this season they're just not good enough to keep fantasy owners interested. With the signing of Kellen Winslow in mid June Cumberland now becomes the second string tight end. This means a lot of blocking and not much in the way of offense for Jeff this season. That is of course until Winslow's knees give out again and force him to the sideline. Even if this happens Cumberland will still be called upon to block more often than not so fantasy owners should keep their distance.

Update: Jeff Cumberland continues to be one of Sanchez's favorite red zone targets in the pre-season. With the lack of quality receiving options, it's not hard to believe that Cumberland may post a half a dozen touchdowns this season, making him somebody to watch on the waiver wire.
