Jets | Austin Seferian-Jenkins claimed by Jets

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 13:21:03 -0700

Free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Buccaneers) was claimed off waivers by the New York Jets Monday, Sept. 27, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: ASJ instantly becomes the most fantasy relevant tight end on the Jets. Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa will remain New York's most frequent targets, but Seferian-Jenkins should eventually play a bigger role than he was in Tampa Bay considering New York's lack of tight end talent otherwise.

Buccaneers | Bucs to waive Austin Seferian-Jenkins

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:40:16 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers plan to release TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins following his arrest for a misdemeanor DUI Friday, September 23.

Fantasy Tip: Seferian-Jenkins is very talented and a lot of people labeled him with high expectations when he was drafted out of Washington a couple of years ago. However, off-the-field issues are derailing his once-promising career. He may get another shot somewhere else down the line, but in the meantime, the Bucs will have to make do with Cameron Brate and Luke Stocker at tight end. Neither is worth adding at this point in time.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins arrested for DUI

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 10:17:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested Friday, Sept. 23, on suspicion of driving while under the influence, according to a USA Today report. He is being charged with DUI and violation of an ignition interlock device restriction from an arrest in Washington in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: ASJ has struggled to stay healthy in his two-plus years in the league, but the same character issues that dogged him at University of Washington have followed him to the NFL. This could just about do it for Seferian-Jenkins' NFL star-crossed career, sad as that might be for a 23-year-old with as much talent as any player at his position in the league.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins climbs depth chart

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 09:31:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is listed alongside TE Cameron Brate as the co-starters at tight end for the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Seferian-Jenkins has tremendous fantasy upside because of his size and speed, but injuries have derailed him maintaining any momentum through his first two seasons in the league. Until the snap counts and target share is clearer between Seferian-Jenkins and Brate, there isn't a lot of fantasy value here. Seferian-Jenkins has the most long-term appeal, though.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins not starting

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 19:00:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins worked with the second-team offense in practice Monday, Sept. 5. Beat writer Greg Auman thinks Seferian-Jenkins plays plenty in the Week 1 opener, but TEs Cameron Brate and Luke Stocker are believed to be the team's starters.

Fantasy Tip: ASJ might need an injury to Brate or Stocker, or perhaps a trade to another team, to regain fantasy relevance. He yelled at his coach during the preseason opener, so clearly he is in the doghouse. Avoid him in most fantasy leagues for now.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins yells at coach

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 16:10:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was observed yelling at head coach Dirk Koetter during the team's preseason finale Wednesday, August 31. He was guided away by WR Russell Shepard from a potential confrontation, but Seferian-Jenkins said there are no hard feelings. "Sometimes I get emotional," he said. "I let my emotions get the best of me. I love my coaches. Coaches love me. We definitely talked and it was what it was."

Fantasy Tip: There's no doubt Seferian-Jenkins is a passionate player, and while he's displayed the tools that could make him an upper echelon tight end in fantasy, there's also other intangibles holding him back, such as potential attitude concerns and injury issues. Either way, Seferian-Jenkins still has to emerge past Cameron Brate for the starting job, meaning owners can wait late in drafts if they want to pull the trigger on the former second-round draft pick.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins to play with ones

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 10:12:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins will play with the first-team offense Friday, Aug. 26, in the third preseason game. Seferian-Jenkins says he's finally starting to figure out the mental aspect of the game and the need to be detail oriented and fundamentally sound at all times.

Fantasy Tip: ASJ has TE1 talent, but he hasn't avoided injury and has been inconsistent. He's a TE2 you can take late and have pay off in a big way.
