With the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots had a big hole to fill at tight end and Seferian-Jenkins was probably the best available option. Still just 26 years old, Seferian-Jenkins is a great athlete but has never been able to capitalize on his considerable potential. He caught 21 passes for 338 yards and four touchdowns in seven games back in 2015, but has never cracked 400 yards receiving or caught more than four touchdowns in five seasons. The Patriots represent his best opportunity to date, and if he gets the requisite playing time, he could turn into a streaming/TE2 option.
JAX TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 5 at Kansas City Chiefs
Even with Blake Bortles completing 29 passes for over 375 yards last Sunday in the blowout of the Jets, Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught only two passes for 24 yards. It broke his string of three straight games with exactly three grabs to start the season. While the Chiefs pass defense hasn’t been able to slow down anyone yet, Seferian-Jenkins is, at best, a TE2 option.
