Buccaneers believe Austin Seferian-Jenkins 'can turn in 60 or more' receptions

Buccaneers beat writer Pat Yasinskas: Second-year tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins had only 21 catches as a rookie, but that was largely because he was dealing with an assortment of injuries. Seferian-Jenkins is healthy now and the Bucs believe he can turn in 60 or more catches. New offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter likes to use the tight end in the passing game as evidenced by what he did with Tony Gonzalez in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: 

We currently project ASJ for 48-572-3.8, which makes him our #14 tight end in standard formats. If he turns in 60 catches at last year's YPC (10.5), it translates to 631 receiving yards. Throw in five or six touchdowns and we're looking at fringe TE1 numbers.
