Austin Seferian-Jenkins compiled two catches for seven yards on three targets Sunday in the Jets’ Week 13 win over the Chiefs.
He didn’t do anything of note as the Jets’ passing game mostly ran through Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse. ASJ has now been held under 30 yards in five of his last six games and hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 7. Even against a Denver defense that bleeds yards to tight ends, he won’t be a recommended streamer in Week 14. Dec 3 - 6:04 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins corralled two-of-seven targets for 27 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 12 loss to the Panthers.

Seferian-Jenkins may not sleep well tonight. ASJ had his paws on what should have been a 13-yard touchdown in the first quarter, but let it fall through his fingertips. That was his first drop of the season. Later it appeared Seferian-Jenkins had scored a one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter but replay showed that he may have bobbled it, which resulted in the play being overturned. It’s the second time this year ASJ has been stripped of a touchdown on review following a similar play versus the Patriots in Week 6. He’s now been held under 30 yards in five of his last six games and hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 7. Seferian-Jenkins will try to put Sunday’s disappointment behind him next week against Kansas City.
Nov 26 - 10:44 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 6-of-9 targets for 67 yards in the Jets' Week 10 loss to the Bucs.

This will be good enough to make ASJ a top-12 tight end for the week in most scoring formats. Seferian-Jenkins' touchdown catches have slowed way down, but he remains a huge part of the Jets' offense on a weekly basis. He's worth holding in 12-team leagues through New York's Week 11 bye, although Week 12 opponent Carolina has played shutdown tight end defense all season.
Nov 12 - 5:07 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 2-of-2 targets for 20 yards in the Jets' Week 9 win over the Bills.

ASJ's least-productive game of the year — by far — would have looked a lot different if not for a horrible penalty call in the second quarter. Working against tight coverage, ASJ got free for a 20-yard touchdown grab in the end zone, but was called for a phantom pushoff by Jerome Boger's penalty-happy crew. ASJ has now been held below 30 yards in three straight games, and 3-of-4. He's catching passes, but averaging just 6.69 yards per grab, severely limiting his upside despite his nice floor.
Nov 3 - 12:03 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 5-of-5 targets for 28 yards in the Jets' Week 8 loss to the Falcons.

Seferian-Jenkins got vultured by backup tight end Eric Tomlinson for an early-game touchdown, ending ASJ's scoring streak at three games. Seferian-Jenkins should get back on track in Week 9 against a Bills defense that got beaten up by Bucs tight ends in Week 7 and Raiders tight ends in Week 8.
Oct 29 - 5:35 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins pulled in three-of-five targets for 21 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

All of his catches came in the second half. He couldn’t have been more wide-open on his 10-yard touchdown, which came on a play where Josh McCown did a nice job to elude pressure by scrambling outside the pocket. The touchdown was Seferian-Jenkins’ third in as many games, though the five targets were his fewest in a game since Week 4 against the Jaguars. No one would ever confuse ASJ for Gronk or Travis Kelce, but he’s stablished a fairly safe floor at a paper-thin fantasy position. He’s graduated from streamer status and should be thought of as an every-week TE1 going forward.
Oct 22 - 6:12 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins reeled in eight-of-11 targets for 46 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

Seferian-Jenkins was a target hog once again, particularly in the first half when he saw seven of his 11 looks from Josh McCown. He put New York on the board first with a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter. That came on a play where he was able to create separation from Elandon Roberts. ASJ nearly had another touchdown in the fourth quarter but the play was changed to a touchback on review. The Jets have a right to be upset as Seferian-Jenkins lost possession briefly but recovered and should have been credited with the touchdown. That play would later be the difference in the game as New England won by a slim 24-17 margin. ASJ has scored in two straight games while seeing at least eight targets in each contest. He’ll be a back-end TE1 next week against Miami.
Oct 15 - 6:08 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 6-of-8 targets for 29 yards and touchdown in the Jets' Week 5 win over the Browns.

After having just one catch for three yards at the half, Seferian-Jenkins had five second half catches, including a 2-yard score that put the Jets ahead in the 3rd Quarter. Even though he has just 106 receiving yards in three games, ASJ has now tied for the team lead or lead the team in targets in two of those games. With no clear lead receiving threat, he will remain a streaming option for Week 6 against the Patriots.
Oct 8 - 5:29 PM

ESPN New York expects the Jets to feature Austin Seferian-Jenkins in Week 5 against the Browns.

Seferian-Jenkins has been one of Josh McCown's top targets since returning from suspension. He played on 77 percent of snaps last week and should continue to see a bigger role. Seferian-Jenkins has blowup potential in a matchup with a Cleveland secondary that's allowed a league-high 31 receptions and four touchdowns to tight ends.
Oct 7 - 8:15 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 4-of-4 targets for 46 yards against the Jaguars in Week 4.

The Jets used him as their primary pass-catching tight end with a variety of routes. Seferian-Jenkins is the biggest target on the team and it helps his case that the Jets receivers can't show up every week. If somehow Josh McCown could get in the red zone more often, ASJ may be able to flirt with TE1 output. What's more, he gets a dream matchup against the Browns in Week 5, so he makes a lot of sense as a streaming option or possible more.
Oct 1 - 4:55 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins is expected to get extra snaps with the Jets declaring Will Tye inactive.

Last week, Tye saw 22 snaps compared to ASJ's 48 and Neal Sterling also getting seven. With Tye gone, Seferian-Jenkin's snap share should be over the 76 percent from last week and he could have some extra targets going his way with Matt Forte (toe) out today. He's a solid streaming option for those with tight end concerns.
Oct 1 - 12:01 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 5-of-6 targets for 31 yards against Dolphins in Week 3.

The Jets didn't limit him for his first game and he was out there to start the first series. Seferian-Jenkins wasn't a lock to be active for this game, so he surpassed most expectations in a win at home. Still, it'll be tough to use him in one-TE leagues and he'll get a tough matchup against the Jaguars in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 4:41 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins in active against the Dolphins for Week 3.

It'll be his first game this season after a two-game suspension. Seferian-Jenkins wasn't a lock to play in this game, so he's still going to be tough to count on this week. Although, the Jets really need some options up the middle, so he's a name to watch in deeper leagues or in two-TE formats.
Sep 24 - 11:41 AM

Jets coach Todd Bowles said it's too early to tell if TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be active this week.

Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from suspension, but is reportedly out of shape after his two-week layoff. With Jordan Leggett and Eric Tomlinson dealing with injuries, the Jets may be forced to play him despite his conditioning. Seferian-Jenkins looks likely to be on a snap count if active. He should be avoided as a Week 3 streamer.
Sep 20 - 6:10 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from suspension this week.

Considering the Jets' situation at tight end, it would be a shock if he was not activated this week and in the starting lineup against the Dolphins on Sunday. Owning any piece of this passing game is not appealing, but Seferian-Jenkins is at least a weapon for a team which needs one. He has low-end streaming appeal.
