Updating a previous item, Austin Seferian-Jenkins is still on waivers.
NFL Network reported that Seferian-Jenkins cleared waivers, but teams have until Monday to make a claim. Either way, it's unlikely anyone picks up the $1.9 million left on ASJ's rookie deal. Seferian-Jenkins has two DUIs in the last four years. Sep 24 - 5:10 PM

Buccaneers waived TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Cameron Brate and Luke Stocker will be the Bucs' tight ends the rest of the way. The 38th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Seferian-Jenkins was known to have drinking problems at the University of Washington and was popped for DUI on Friday morning, leading to his release. Some team will undoubtedly give the 24-year-old another chance, but Seferian-Jenkins will eventually face a suspension from the NFL. ASJ's loss is a blow to Jameis Winston's fantasy outlook. Seferian-Jenkins at least had potential, and the Bucs have gotten very little from their complementary pass catchers behind Mike Evans.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested and charged with DUI Friday morning.

Seferian-Jenkins was stopped by Florida Highway Patrol around 4 AM and booked at the Orient Road Jail around 6 AM. It's his second DUI after being busted for one in 2013 while he was still in college. ASJ had an offseason full of letdowns, from being kicked out of practice in the spring to losing his starting job to Cameron Brate. This could be the final straw for him in Tampa Bay.
Sep 23 - 9:03 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 2-of-2 targets for 14 yards in the Bucs' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

ASJ remains mired in a timeshare with Cameron Brate. He has three targets through two games. There are better ways to use a roster spot in 12-team leagues.
Sep 18 - 8:05 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught his lone target for a 30-yard touchdown in the Bucs' Week 1 win over Atlanta.

Seferian-Jenkins made a fantastic catch on his score, but he rotated with Cameron Brate and Luke Stocker and is not yet a full-time player in the Bucs' offense. ASJ still offers a very high ceiling, but he's got to earn more consistent playing time and targets in order to become a reliable fantasy option.
Sep 11 - 5:30 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins is listed as a co-starter on the Buccaneers' latest depth chart.

It's a step up for Seferian-Jenkins, who was listed as a backup on Monday's unofficial depth chart. ASJ appears to have pulled even with Cameron Brate, though Brate has commanded most of the first-team reps at practice. Until a frontrunner emerges, both players will be off the fantasy radar.
Sep 6 - 11:32 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins was listed as a backup on the Bucs' unofficial depth chart for Week 1.

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman reported ASJ was running with the twos during Monday's practice, and this depth chart would seem to confirm that observation. Seferian-Jenkins is still squarely in coach Dirk Koetter's doghouse, but he is a much more dangerous weapon in the passing game than Cameron Brate. He will get his targets eventually.

Sep 6 - 10:45 AM

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman reports Austin Seferian-Jenkins worked with the second-team offense at Monday's practice.

Auman thinks ASJ will play "plenty" in the Week 1 opener, but said he believes Cameron Brate and Luke Stocker are ahead of him on the depth chart as the "starters." Stocker is probably more of an H-back/lead-blocker type with no true fullback on the roster. Seferian-Jenkins played deep into the preseason finale, suggesting he's still in coach Dirk Koetter's doghouse.
Sep 5 - 9:03 PM

Coach Dirk Koetter said Austin Seferian-Jenkins logged 56 snaps in Wednesday night's preseason finale because ASJ "just needed to play more."

"I don't really need to give you the reasons," said Koetter. "We thought he needed to play more." Seferian-Jenkins didn't exactly capitalize on his increased opportunities, managing two catches for 22 yards on seven targets. Seferian-Jenkins was also spotted barking at Koetter at one point during the game. ASJ's role to open the season is uncertain, but Cameron Brate may now be locked in as Tampa Bay's starting tight end. The Tampa Times' Rick Stroud later suggested on Twitter that the Bucs "are acting like a team trying to trade ASJ."
Sep 1 - 8:40 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins was spotted yelling at coach Dirk Koetter in Wednesday's preseason game.

Explaining himself to the Tampa Bay Times, ASJ said "sometimes I get emotional." He claimed Koetter had "no issue" with the episode after the two talked things out. An "emotional" ASJ played deep into the fourth quarter of a game starters almost always sit out entirely. His roster spot is likely safe, but Cameron Brate is looking more and more like the Bucs' starting tight end.
Sep 1 - 3:32 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught 2-of-7 targets for 22 yards in the Bucs' preseason finale.

A game normally reserved for backups, ASJ played deep into the fourth quarter. "Austin needed to play," coach Dirk Koetter said. "He needed to get out there and play a long time." Even though he has reportedly been taking first-team reps in practice as of late, the fact Seferian-Jenkins played while Cameron Brate did not says a lot about the depth chart. ASJ is still a TE2 stash, but he will not be usable early in the season.
Sep 1 - 9:27 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught his lone target for five yards in the Bucs' third preseason game.

ASJ made no noise on the stat line, but it was notable that he got the start ahead of Cameron Brate. Brate wasn't even targeted on Friday night. Seferian-Jenkins is going to have his ups and downs in this offense as a distant third or fourth option, but he has big upside and is worthy of a TE2 flier.
Aug 26 - 11:03 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins will play with the first team in Friday’s preseason game.

The Bucs have given Cameron Brate most of the starter reps to this point, but ASJ has earned the promotion with his recent play. He’s reportedly improved the mental aspect of his game since his shaky start to training camp. Seferian-Jenkins is shaping up as a high-upside TE2.

Aug 26 - 4:02 PM

Coach Dirk Koetter praised Austin Seferian-Jenkins' work ethic over the past couple weeks.

After opening camp as the clear No. 2 to Cameron Brate, ASJ has gained the ground back and is splitting first-team reps with Brate. "Austin's worked his way right back in there," Koetter said. "And when he got moved down the depth chart all you can ask a player when he gets moved down is that he competes and does better and tries to get back up there and he's done that." It was a motivational tactic by Koetter, and it's paid off. ASJ is a high-upside late-round flier.
Aug 24 - 9:27 AM

Coach Dirk Koetter said Sunday that Austin Seferian-Jenkins has "earned" the right to resume splitting first-team reps with Cameron Brate.

While Brate has turned in a poor preseason, ASJ has earned strong blocking grades from Pro Football Focus and been efficient with his passing-game targets. There's no question ASJ is a superior talent. He needs to continue to show the coaching staff that he's a reliable asset, and indications are Seferian-Jenkins is on his way. He remains a late-round flyer with plenty of ceiling.
