2019 Fantasy Outlook
After losing his entire rookie season to a knee injury, Leggett saw the field for the Jets last year, finishing with 14 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown. His receiving ability is supposed to be the young tight end's greatest asset, but Leggett hasn't been able to show off that skill much to date. Read Past Outlooks

TETampa Bay Buccaneers
May 21, 2019
Leggett was claimed off waivers by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Leggett was waived by the Jets on Monday and quickly found a new team. The 24-year-old had a quiet tenure in New York, making 14 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. If he's able to make the team, Leggett likely won't produce favorable results in the fantasy world while stuck behind O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Keep an eye on Leggett in the Jets' wide open tight end competition. The 2017 fifth-rounder missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury, but he's fully healthy now and as likely as anybody to emerge as New York's starter at the position. Even if Leggett wins the job, owners should keep in mind that the Jets haven't put much emphasis on the tight end position in years past and should be content throwing primarily to a deep wide receiver corps.
The Jets have gotten the least amount of fantasy production from their tight ends over the past two seasons, which prompted them to pick Leggett in the fifth round of this year's draft. His path to regular playing time shouldn't be too difficult, as he'll compete with Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is suspended for the first two games of the regular season, and Braeden Bowman, who missed most of last season with a knee injury. Unfortunately, the Jets don't have great options competing for the starting quarterback job, so even if Leggett is able to secure the top spot on the tight end depth chart, there aren't many reasons to think he'll be an impactful fantasy rookie.
