Seferian-Jenkins secured three of seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Panthers. The sophomore tight end wrapped up the season with 14 catches over his final five games, after missing nine contests with a shoulder injury. He was unable to top three catches in any game except for an opener where he delivered on his tremendous promise by hauling in five receptions for 110 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He did visit the end zone twice more over the final three weeks, and will look to put a largely forgettable second-year campaign behind him with a strong offseason working on his chemistry with Jameis Winston. With his outstanding size/speed combination, Seferian-Jenkins should easily eclipse the pair of 21-catch seasons he's started his career with if he can remain healthy for all 16 games.
Seferian-Jenkins secured two of four targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Bears. The second-year tight end salvaged his stat line by hauling in Jameis Winston's 43-yard Hail Mary pass as time expired. Otherwise, it was another forgettable afternoon for Seferian-Jenkins, who has struggled to regain a place in the offense after having missed nine games earlier in the season with a shoulder injury. The 23-year-old will attempt to close out his injury-shortened 2015 campaign in positive fashion against the Panthers in Week 17.
Seferian-Jenkins secured three of six targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 31-23 loss to the Rams. The towering tight end secured three of six targets for the third consecutive week since returning from a nine-game absence, but was also able to score his first touchdown since tallying a pair of end zone visits in the season opener. Seferian-Jenkins notably did not see any increase in targets despite the absence of wideout Vincent Jackson (knee), as pressure from the Rams' aggressive front made it difficult for Jameis Winston to scan the field, especially in the first half. The second-year pro was Winston's second-most targeted receiver (along with Adam Humphries) despite the lackluster performance, and as he demonstrated with a 110-yard, two-touchdown 2015 opener, has the potential for a breakout game on any given week.
Seferian-Jenkins played 25 snaps in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Saints, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The starting tight end's playing time inched slightly upward from the 21 snaps he received in his long-awaited return in Week 13 against the Falcons. While the strategy may have been to bring Seferian-Jenkins along in moderate fashion over the remainder of the season, that mindset has likely been rendered obsolete in the wake of Vincent Jackson's latest knee injury. The quick turnaround in Week 15 should serve as a good test of the second-year pro's stamina, as he should receive a significant allotment of playing time.
Seferian Jenkins secured three of his six targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Saints. The second-year pro posted the exact same stat line as in his Week 13 return, and like most of his teammates, undewhelmed while facing the Saints' 32nd-ranked defense. Seferian-Jenkins is receiving a solid amount of looks from Jameis Winston, and would figure to be in line for additional opportunity if Vincent Jackson (knee) is forced to miss extended time. The towering tight end will tangle with the Rams' defense in a Week 15 Thursday night road showdown.
