  • Seferian-Jenkins brought in six of nine targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Buccaneers. ASJ was held in check for a considerable portion of the contest, but he was able to put together a fourth-quarter surge that enabled him to post his best receiving yardage total of 2017. The fourth-year tight end has proven to be an ideal fit within the Jets' offensive scheme, and despite not getting into the end zone since Week 7, his 39 receptions are certainly keeping him relevant in PPR formats. He'll look to build in Sunday's effort against the Panthers in Week 12 following a Week 11 bye.

  • Seferian-Jenkins was limited to two targets during Thursday's 34-21 loss to Buffalo, catching both for 20 yards. The catches, targets, and yardage were all season lows for Seferian-Jenkins, who ran up against a hot Buffalo defense on a short week. Coming into Thursday, he was targeted at least four times in six consecutive games and is probably a safe bet to return to that level of usage against a less formidable Buccaneers outfit on Sunday. If anything, he might see more passes come his way with the suspension of slot man Jeremy Kerley.

  • Seferian-Jenkins brought in all five targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Falcons. Seferian-Jenkins wasn't targeted as often as on some other weeks, but he managed to turn in the second-highest catch total on the team by corralling all five of his looks. The 25-year-old did see his three-game streak of posting a receiving touchdown come to an end, but he clearly remains one of Josh McCown's most trusted targets. Now having logged under 30 receiving yards in three of his past four games, he'll look to up his overall totals versus the Bills in a Week 9 Thursday night matchup.

  • Jets' Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Scores again
    By RotoWire Staff

    Seferian-Jenkins nabbed three of five targets for 21 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-28 loss to Miami. Seferian-Jenkins put the Jets up by two scores with a 10-yard touchdown grab late in the third quarter, marking his third consecutive game with a score. The 2014 second-round pick is finally living up to his potential on a New York team devoid of other established weapons in the passing game. Despite missing the first two games of the season to suspension, only four tight ends have more touchdowns than Seferian-Jenkins thus far this season.

  • Seferian-Jenkins caught eight of 11 targets for 46 yards and a touchdown while also having a second touchdown turned into a fumble in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Patriots. Seferian-Jenkins capped the opening drive with a one-yard touchdown catch on third down after a pair of running plays failed to get the job done. It looked like he scored another short touchdown in the fourth quarter, but the officials somehow ruled it a fumble in what most observers would agree was an egregious error. The 6-foot-5, 262-pound tight end knows how to use his massive frame in tight spaces and is emerging as a go-to red-zone weapon for quarterback Josh McCown with touchdowns in consecutive weeks. Seferian-Jenkins doesn't get much downfield work, though, as evidenced by his season average of just 6.6 yards per catch.
