Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE, JAX) - Fantasy Football Draft Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Target ~175


ANALYSIS: Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins only played in 25 games from 2014-2016, which left him with uninspiring seasonal averages during that span (18 receptions/237 yards). However, after playing 655 offensive snaps in 13 games for the Jets last season, Seferian-Jenkins easily eclipsed those numbers (50 receptions/357 yards). He also generated three touchdowns, while being subjected to having multiple scores absconded by officials due to replay overturns or penalty.

Seferian-Jenkins also led the team with 11 red zone targets, collected at least five targets in seven of Gang Green’s first nine games, and amassed 41 of his catches during that sequence of contests. All of which compelled the Jaguars to secure him with a two-year contract, while entrusting him with the team’s TE1 responsibilities. At age 25, he now has an excellent opportunity to establish new career highs once again, and consistently reward owners for the minimal investment of a 14th round pick.

Jacksonville's offense runs through Leonard Fournette, and Blake Bortles will certainly target his cluster of wide receivers. But offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett will also keep Seferian-Jenkins involved in the Jaguar attack. With only Niles Paul and James O'Shaughnessy occupying spots on the depth chart, Seferian-Jenkins owners will not be impacted by the fluctuating target totals that exist with burdensome time shares. He not only supplies you with viable protection in case your theoretical TE1 is sidelined or frequently ineffective, but Seferian-Jenkins also offers the potential to function as your starter when he is the beneficiary of favorable matchups.
