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.
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.
