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.

JAX TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. New York Jets

With Blake Bortles throwing for just 155 yards last Sunday versus the Titans, Austin Seferian-Jenkins saw five targets, leading to three catches for 18 yards. The consistency with the Jaguars TE continued, as he has seen exactly five looks every game this season, resulting in three grabs in each contest. Seferian-Jenkins' nine receptions have totaled 66 yards and a Week 2 score. He should only be used as a TE2 option versus a pretty good Jets pass defense this week.

JAX TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Tennessee Titans

Even though Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught only three passes (all in the first half) last Sunday in the home win over the Patriots, one of them was a four-yard TD just before intermission. In the first two games, his numbers have been almost identical: Five targets, three receptions and between 23-25 yards. With Fournette back in the lineup this week, Seferian-Jenkins is a TE2 play.

JAX TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. New England Patriots

With the Jaguars defense and ground game controlling the game against the Giants in Week 1, Austin Seferian-Jenkins saw five targets, resulting in three receptions for 25 yards. Blake Bortles completed only 18 passes in the win but could have a bigger role versus the Patriots on Sunday if the running game has issues due to Leonard Fournette's injured hamstring. Houston tight ends totaled 38 receiving yards versus New England last week, so don’t expect a big game from Seferian-Jenkins.

JAX TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at New York Giants

After a couple of unproductive seasons with the Bucs, Austin Seferian-Jenkins had a solid 2017 with the Jets, snagging 50 passes for 357 yards and 3 TDs. He’ll be Jacksonville’s No. 1 TE this season, but the Jaguars' mostly conservative playcalling may limit his numbers. With Blake Bortles at QB, you should look elsewhere for your starter.

JAX TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins - 2018 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

The Jaguars signed Seferian-Jenkins to a two-year, $10 million contract during free agency this offseason, beating out the Saints and Seahawks, who also showed interest in signing the No. 38 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Last year, Seferian-Jenkins turned his career around with the Jets, posting career-highs in receptions (50) and receiving yards (357) after battling alcoholism issues early in his career with the Buccaneers. Although "ASJ" isn't much of a threat with the ball in his hands, he can move the chains as a possession receiver and has the size and athleticism to help Blake Bortles as a red-zone weapon. Worth noting: The Jaguars, who reportedly wanted to take a tight end in April's draft, ultimately passed on the position.

Fantasy Downside

Seferian-Jenkins has never been a consistent producer and the Jaguars haven't leaned heavily on the tight end position in recent years.

2018 Bottom Line

As Bleacher Report noted, upon closer review, Seferian-Jenkins' upside was apparent last season: He finished with only three touchdown receptions, but he caught two other touchdowns that were reversed upon review—and both were fantastic plays. So yes; ASJ is a viable fantasy TE2. But nobody should expect high-end, week-to-week production.

NYJ TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at New England Patriots

Austin Seferian-Jenkins was targeted 8 times last week and it produced 4 receptions for only 21 yards. Seferian-Jenkins has not been effective the last five weeks and he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 7.

The Jets passing game isn't nearly as good since Josh McCown went down. Keep him on the bench for Week 17.
