Player Outlook
Until Manhertz finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Giants' Chris Manhertz: Catches on with New York

    The Giants have agreed to terms with Manhertz, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Manhertz, who turns 32 next month, has logged a total of 26 catches for 271 yards and two touchdowns over the course of 120 games since entering the NFL in 2016. While the 6-foot-6, 235-pounder is off the fantasy radar, he does offer value as a blocker and can contribute on special teams. In any case, Manhertz, along with fellow newcomer Jack Stoll, bolsters the Giants' depth at tight end with top pass-catching option Darren Waller considering retirement.

  • Broncos' Chris Manhertz: Dropped by Denver

    The Broncos released Manhertz on Friday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports. After appearing in 16 of the Broncos' games in 2023, the team has decided to part ways with Manhertz. The veteran tight end has also spent time with Carolina, Jacksonville and New Orleans throughout his eight-year NFL career. He's now set to hit the open market after playing a total of 453 snaps last season (367 offensive and 86 on special teams).

  • Broncos' Chris Manhertz: Won't play Week 18

    Manhertz (illness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Las Vegas. An illness has prevented Manhertz from participating in any capacity during Week 18 prep, and he's consequently been deemed unavailable for Denver's season finale. The tight end thus will finish the season with two catches (on four targets) for 16 yards over 16 games. Manhertz typically plays from one-third to one-half of Denver's offensive snaps, and those could be absorbed by Nate Adkins on Sunday.

  • Broncos' Chris Manhertz: Returns to game

    Manhertz came back in late in the first half Sunday against the Texans after exiting with a shoulder injury earlier in the half, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. The backup tight end does not have a catch yet in the game. Manhertz has two catches for 16 yards and no touchdowns in 2023.

  • Broncos' Chris Manhertz: Notches second catch of season

    Manhertz played 30 of the Broncos' 75 snaps on offense and turned his lone target into a six-yard reception in Monday's 24-22 win over the Bills. The six-yard grab was just the second catch of the season for Manhertz. The 31-year-old has been active for all nine of the Broncos' games this season and has played at least 20 percent of the snaps on offense each time, but he's been deployed almost exclusively as a blocker when he's on the field.

  • Broncos' Chris Manhertz: Moving to Denver

    Manhertz is slated to sign a two-year, $6 million deal with the Broncos, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Manhertz will join his fourth team as he goes into his eighth season. Primarily a blocking specialist, he's never caught more than six passes in a season. With Greg Dulcich and Albert Okwuegbunam ahead of Manhertz on the depth chart, expect him to continue a similar role with his new team.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Just six catches in 2022

    Manhertz played in all 17 games during the 2022 regular season and caught six of eight targets for 42 yards. The 30-year-old primarily served as a blocking tight end for the Jaguars once again in 2022, and he was rarely targeted in the passing game. Jacksonville enters the offseason with major question marks at tight end, since starter Evan Engram, Manhertz and fellow backup Dan Arnold are all scheduled to hit free agency. Luke Farrell is currently the only tight end under contract with the Jaguars for 2023.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Records 21-yard reception

    Manhertz played 27 of the Jaguars' 67 snaps on offense and turned his lone target into a 21-yard reception in Sunday's 36-22 win over the Titans. Manhertz came through with his first 20-plus-yard reception of the season, as he entered Sunday's contest with five receptions for 21 yards over his first 13 appearances. The 6-foot-6, 255-pound Manhertz continues to share the field regularly with top tight end Evan Engram, but Manhertz is deployed almost exclusively as a blocker whenever he's out there.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: One catch Week 9

    Manhertz caught one of two targets for seven yards during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Raiders. Manhertz tied a season high with 36 offensive snaps but still played only a minor role in Jacksonville's aerial attack. No. 1 tight end Evan Engram briefly left the contest with a back issue, but he returned to the field and is expected to be good to go for Week 10. Even if Engram were to miss time, Manhertz would likely still primarily function as a blocker.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Sees rare activity in passing game

    Manhertz played 26 of the Jaguars' 73 offensive snaps in Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Texans, finishing with two receptions for 15 yards on two targets. After his first catch of 2022 last week against the Eagles went for no gain, Manhertz was credited with positive yardage for the first time all season Week 5. With snap shares between 28 and 48 percent through each of the Jaguars' first five games, Manhertz looks secure as the top backup to No. 1 tight end Evan Engram, but the 6-foot-6, 255-pound Manhertz will operate almost exclusively as a blocker whenever he's on the field.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: No targets in loss

    Manhertz played 25 of 70 offensive snaps and wasn't targeted during Sunday's 28-22 loss to the Commanders. The 30-year-old worked as the Jaguars' No. 2 tight end behind starter Evan Engram but didn't have any involvement in the passing game. Manhertz played in all 17 games last year but totaled only six catches for 71 yards and one touchdown, and he's opened 2022 by once again working as a block-first tight end.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: No targets in finale

    Manhertz played 30 of 68 offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-11 win over the Colts and didn't draw a target. Jacob Hollister and Luke Farrell both saw a bit more playing time, but Hollister was the only Jaguars tight end to be a factor in the passing game with three catches for 14 yards. Manhertz, who joined Jacksonville on a two-year, $6.65 million deal in March, suited up in all 17 games but finished with just six receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown. If the 29-year-old opens the 2022 season on the roster, he'll continue to serve mainly as a blocker.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: One target Week 17

    Manhertz failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 50-10 loss at New England. Manhertz played only 16 of 47 offensive snaps with James O'Shaughnessy (hip) sidelined, as Luke Farrell operated as the No. 1 tight end Sunday. Manhertz has only six receptions for 71 yards and one touchdown through 16 games and clearly is an afterthought in Jacksonville's passing game.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Returns from COVID list

    Manhertz (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. Manhertz landed on the COVID-19 list Monday after testing positive for the virus, but he was able to clear the protocols and will be available for Sunday's matchup with New England. The 29-year-old is poised to operate as the Jags' No. 1 tight end since James O'Shaughnessy is sidelined by a hip injury.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Moves to COVID list

    Jacksonville placed Manhertz on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after he tested positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Manhertz wasn't targeted on 27 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Jets, and he's now looks to be at risk of missing the Jaguars' Week 17 game against the Patriots. Luke Farrell (illness) also landed on the COVID-19 list, leaving James O'Shaughnessy and Jacob Hollister as the only available tight ends on the roster.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Secures lone target

    Manhertz caught his only target for seven yards during Thursday's 24-21 loss to the Bengals. Manhertz started and led Jacksonville's tight ends with 24 offensive snaps, but Dan Arnold, Luke Farrell and Jacob Hollister all saw double-digit snaps. Most notable is Arnold, as he was only acquired from the Panthers on Monday and caught both his targets for 29 yards in his debut with the Jags. Manhertz should continue to play regular snaps as a blocking specialist, but Arnold should see more and more playing time as he gets more accustomed to his new offense.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Not targeted in defeat

    Manhertz wasn't targeted and played 25 offensive snaps during Sunday's 31-19 loss to Arizona. The 29-year-old received the start at tight end with James O'Shaughnessy (knee) on injured reserve, but Jacob Hollister ended up leading the position group with 46 offensive snaps. Hollister caught only two of six targets for 15 yards, while Luke Farrell played only 17 snaps and caught his lone target for minus-1 yard. The Jaguars clearly were unhappy with what they were seeing out of their tight ends and opted to acquire Dan Arnold from the Panthers on Monday, who will be a candidate to immediately take over the starting role.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Starting spot open

    Manhertz could have an increased role with James O'Shaughnessy (ankle) facing an indefinite absence, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. Manhertz wasn't targeted and played only 27 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to Denver despite the fact O'Shaughnessy went down early with the injury. Luke Farrell caught one pass for six yards while playing 36 offensive snaps and may be the team's new top option at tight end in the passing game. Manhertz should continue to play plenty of snaps with O'Shaughnessy out, but he'll likely continue to see most of his work as a blocker.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Catches lone target

    Manhertz caught his only target for 15 yards during Sunday's preseason win over the Cowboys. Manhertz played only eight offensive snaps and connected with Trevor Lawrence for a 15-yard gain in the first quarter. The 29-year-old played sparingly throughout the preseason and caught his only other target for five yards. Manhertz inked a two-year, $7.25 million deal with Jacksonville in March and should have a regular role in the offense, but with 12 receptions in 70 career games his outlook entering Week 1 at Houston remains that of a blocking-oriented tight end. James O'Shaughnessy may be more involved in the passing game at the position for the Jaguars.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Signs with Jags

    Manhertz is signing a two-year, $7.25 million contract with the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The deal includes $4.25 million guaranteed, a nice sum for a blocking specialist. Manhertz has 12 receptions on 1,531 offensive snaps in 70 NFL appearances.
