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.
Sep 18 - 12:08 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 1-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Jets' third preseason game

Seferian-Jenkins started and played deep into the game. He's been a non-factor this preseason, but is locked into a starting job. Seferian-Jenkins won't have more than a supporting role when he returns from suspension in Week 3.
Aug 26 - 10:39 PM

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes reports Austin Seferian-Jenkins "has dominated" at Jets camp.

Seferian-Jenkins was widely considered the best offensive player on the team in spring practices, and that has carried over into training camp with the pads on. He's been winning all of his one-on-ones and looks like a "legitimate offensive weapon" for a Jets squad that needs them. Though suspended for the first two games, ASJ has a real chance to lead this offense in targets the final 14 weeks.
Aug 9 - 9:24 AM

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets "like what they've seen" out of Austin Seferian-Jenkins this offseason.

The tight end also received praise from NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes, who said ASJ was the "most impressive player on the field" at OTAs. Cimini notes the Jets plan to lean on tight ends more under new OC John Morton, especially following the release of Eric Decker, and Seferian-Jenkins is the best bet to earn those targets once he returns from his two-game suspension. Undrafted in most leagues, Seferian-Jenkins is not a terrible late-round dart throw in best ball formats.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes pegged Austin Seferian-Jenkins as the "most impressive player on the field" at Jets OTAs.

To be frank, ASJ doesn't have much competition in the form of offensive talent among his teammates, but this is still great to hear. "He caught everything in sight," Hughes added. Seferian-Jenkins has hit the reset button on his life this offseason, quitting drinking and dropping 25 pounds in the process. One of the more established players on a Jets offense filled with inexperience, ASJ has a chance at real contributions in 2017 after he serves a two-game ban.
Jun 9 - 9:08 AM

Suspended Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins revealed he's been clean and sober for 129 days.

ASJ has battled a not-so-secret drinking problem since college. He quit drinking on January 21 and attended outpatient rehab four times a week. "Knowing you need help and you don't go get it, that's the worst thing," he said. "I was scared to get help. I was scared and embarrassed to tell people I have a problem." Seferian-Jenkins has dropped 20-something pounds and says he's undergone a "transformation." He's apparently been lighting up OTAs.
May 30 - 10:12 PM

Suspended Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins dropped 25 pounds this offseason.

After his weight reached the 280s last season, ASJ is down to 260. His offseason regimen included hot pilates and working out up to three times a day with a Las Vegas fitness expert. ASJ's career bottomed out last year after his September DUI arrest and subsequent release from Tampa Bay, but it looks like he's recommitted heading into his contract year. He'll begin the season serving a two-game ban.
