Jeff Cumberland had two receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown during the New York Jets' loss to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football in Week 5. Cumberland started a fourth straight game with Dustin Keller once again marked inactive with a hamstring injury. Cumberland was targeted four times on the night.
Fantasy Impact: Cumberland found the end zone on a 27-yard pass from Mark Sanchez in the first quarter, rewarding the few fantasy owners who started the tight end in their leagues. It was easily Cumberland's best performance of the season from a fantasy perspective, but there is still nothing to suggest he is worthwhile weekly starting option. He is averaging roughly five targets a game, which isn't nearly enough to be productive on a weekly basis within a shaky Jets offense.
