Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Catches TD on only target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones caught his lone target for a 19-yard touchdown in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Giants.

The college wideout turned NFL tight end has bounced around the league the past few years, playing for Arizona, Cleveland, Kansas City and now Washington. His struggles to earn regular snaps aren't likely to end on a team with Logan Thomas at tight end, but Seals-Jones did show that he can still make big plays, outleaping a defender for a surprise fourth-quarter TD on Thursday. There is some potential for fantasy value if Thomas were to miss time, though in such a scenario Seal-Jones might be forced into a committee rather than taking over the starter's three-down role.

Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Back on the field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones (leg) resumed practicing Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Seals-Jones suffered a leg contusion during practice last week, but he's already recovered enough to resume participating in on-field drills. Count on Seals-Jones to resume competing for a depth gig behind top tight end Logan Thomas.

Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Suffers mid-practice injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones exited Thursday's practice session early due to an apparent right leg injury, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Seals-Jones was helped off the field by trainers, and he was only able to walk gingerly. The 26-year-old tight end has an opportunity to earn a key depth role behind Logan Thomas in Washington, but those chances could dry up if he's forced to miss a significant portion of training camp.

Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Lands in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones has signed a contract with Washington, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Washington doesn't have much prominent depth at tight end behind Logan Thomas, so Seals-Jones will certainly have a shot to earn a roster spot in camp. Seals-Jones failed to record a catch over two appearances with the Chiefs last season but caught at least 12 passes in each of the previous three campaigns, split between Arizona and Cleveland.

Chiefs' Ricky Seals-Jones: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones has been promoted from Kansas City's practice squad to the team's active roster.

With Deon Yelder (groin) now on IR as Sunday's playoff game against the Browns approaches, Seals-Jones will serve as the team's No. 3 tight end behind Travis Kelce and Nick Keizer.

Ricky Seals-Jones: Joins practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones was signed to the Chiefs' practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Chiefs have now signed Seals-Jones to the practice squad once again, but it is unlikely the tight end will see active status. Through his two games this season, the 25-year-old has played just six offensive snaps and five special teams snaps.

Ricky Seals-Jones: Released by KC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones was released by the Chiefs on Saturday.

Seals-Jones logged four offensive snaps in Week 16 against the Falcons, but he'd been inactive since Week 6 prior to that instance. The Chiefs promoted Gehrig Dieter to their active roster upon waiving Seals-Jones.

Chiefs' Ricky Seals-Jones: Inactive again Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Ravens, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Seals-Jones is a healthy scratch for the second straight game after not playing a single snap during the season opener. Nick Keizer and Deon Yelder will be the depth options at tight end behind All-Pro Travis Kelce for Kansas City.

Chiefs' Ricky Seals-Jones: Healthy scratch Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 tilt against the Chargers, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

The veteran tight end has some name value from his past NFL exploits, but on a Chiefs team that features Travis Kelce at the top of the positional depth chart, Seals-Jones may have an uphill battle for active status on some weeks. Seals-Jones did not see the field Week 1 against the Texans either, as he appears to have been usurped for the backup role to Kelce by undrafted rookie Nick Keizer at the moment.

Chiefs' Ricky Seals-Jones: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones (leg) returned to practice Sunday, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Considering Seals-Jones was carted off the field just last Monday, it's a great sign that he's avoided a significant injury and is back in the mix at tight end. He enters 2020 on a one-year deal and is in line to compete with Deon Yelder (groin) for reps as the Chiefs' No. 2 tight end behind Travis Kelce.

Chiefs' Ricky Seals-Jones: Injured during practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones was carted off the practice field Monday with an apparent right leg injury, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Signed to a one-year contract in the offseason, Seals-Jones is hoping to replace Blake Bell as the No. 2 tight end in Kansas City. His main competition (Deon Yelder) has been dealing with a groin strain, so the Chiefs likely will sign a tight end at some point this week.

Chiefs' Ricky Seals-Jones: Joining Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs and Seals-Jones agreed to terms of a contract Friday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

According to Paylor, the deal encompasses the 2020 season. Seals-Jones has been moderately productive in three pro campaigns, averaging 12.9 yards per catch and scoring eight touchdowns on 60 career receptions between the Cardinals and Browns. The Chiefs don't have much depth behind Travis Kelce, so Seals-Jones may be the frontrunner for the No. 2 role.

Ricky Seals-Jones: Enters free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones didn't receive a contract tender from the Browns and is now an unrestricted free agent, Mike Clay of ESPN.com reports.

The Browns brought in Austin Hooper to lead the tight end room, making Seals-Jones an expendable depth option. The 25-year-old is coming off a 2019 season in which he notched 14 catches for 229 yards and four touchdowns across 14 games, and he should garner fair interest around the league as a developmental/depth piece.

Browns' Ricky Seals-Jones: Has career-high TDs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones had 14 receptions for 229 yards and four touchdowns over 14 games in 2019.

Seals-Jones had a nose for the end zone, posting a career-high four touchdowns on just 22 targets. He was not on the radar to start the season, but David Njoku's injury opened the door for Cleveland's other tight ends. While Seals-Jones received red-zone targets, he wasn't on the field all that much outside of those situations -- he played no more than 32 percent of the offensive snaps in 12 of his 14 games played. The 24-year-old enters the offseason as a restricted free agent and could benefit if the Browns opt to bring him back. New head coach Kevin Stefanski often deployed multiple tight ends while with the Vikings, according to Scott Patsko of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. For the Browns, a team that did not target its third wideouts much beyond Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, Stefanski could rely more on tight ends in 2020.

Browns' Ricky Seals-Jones: Active for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones (illness) is active Week 17 against Cincinnati.

Seals-Jones was one of several Cleveland players battling an illness this week, and while it cost him a few practice sessions, he'll end up on the active roster for the regular-season finale. Another factor is in play this week in terms of the target share at the position, however, as David Njoku will return from back-to-back healthy scratches and re-join the active roster, with Demetrius Harris -- the snap leader in back-to-back weeks -- on hand as well.

Browns' Ricky Seals-Jones: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns list Seals-Jones (illness) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The illness resulted in Seals-Jones being listed as a non-participant on the Browns' first two practice reports of Week 17, but his ability to return to work Friday in a limited fashion suggests he's at least feeling a little better as Sunday approaches. Assuming Seals-Jones gets the green light to play, he should remain part of a three-man committee at tight end that includes Stephen Carlson and Demetrius Harris. Week 1 starter David Njoku has seemingly fallen out of favor, as he's been a healthy inactive for both of the past two games.

Browns' Ricky Seals-Jones: Missing at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones (illness) wasn't present on the field for Thursday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The Browns listed Seals-Jones as a non-participant on their initial practice report released Wednesday, and the tight end looks poised to maintain that listing for a second straight day. If Seals-Jones is able to return to practice Friday and put in a full workout, he'll stand a good chance at avoiding a designation heading into Sunday's season finale versus the Bengals.

Browns' Ricky Seals-Jones: Out sick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones (illness) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The Browns didn't actually practice, but if they had, Seals-Jones was the only member of the roster that would have sat out. However, a return to the field Thursday or Friday could be all Seals-Jones needs to get the green light to play Sunday against Cincinnati.

Browns' Ricky Seals-Jones: Two targets in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones caught one of two targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Ravens in Week 16.

Seals-Jones left last week's game with a shoulder injury but was available to practice all week and started Sunday's contest. With David Njoku inactive for a second straight week, there was an opportunity for Seals-Jones, who had the second-longest catch for the Browns. Seals-Jones also was the target on a failed two-point conversion attempt when the Browns closed within striking distance in the fourth quarter. He ended up with 19 offensive snaps, the sixth straight week he's received fewer than 20. Without Njoku, Seals-Jones is the biggest receiving threat of the position group (four TDs, 16.4 YPR) but too inconsistent to trust.

Browns' Ricky Seals-Jones: Not bothered by shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones (shoulder) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

After leaving this last Sunday's loss to the Cardinals with a shoulder injury, Seals-Jones is feeling no ill effects just a few days later. The 24-year-old tight end performed well against his former team, recording three receptions for 29 yards and two touchdowns. However, Seals-Jones did benefit from David Njoku sitting out as a healthy inactive, and it's not known whether coach Freddie Kitchens will reintegrate Njoku back into the offense Week 16 against the Ravens. Regardless, Seals-Jones isn't a dependable fantasy play, as he draws a tough matchup and finished with fewer than 20 offensive snaps in each of the past five games.
