Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Seferian-Jenkins may still end up with the 'questionable' designation for a third straight week, but it doesn't sound like he actually has a shot to play. At this point, it's fair to wonder if he may be in danger of missing the rest of the season. His official status for Sunday's game should be available shortly.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Head coach Lovie Smith reiterated that Seferian-Jenkins has yet to be cleared for contact, which is the foremost stipulation for his return to the field. In the meantime, limited practice showings will dominate each week, as the tight end continues to recover from a strained shoulder suffered in Week 2.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Seferian-Jenkins is officially listed as questionable, but given that he still hasn't been cleared for full contact since suffering the injury back in Week 2 against the Saints, it always seemed like a bit of a long shot that he'd play Sunday. Seferian-Jenkins reported said he was unsure why he hasn't been cleared for full practice, and he will likely continue to be questionable until he is.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Seferian-Jenkins seemed like a good bet to finally suit up for the first time since Week 2, but the prognosis has become increasingly pessimistic throughout the week, as he still hasn't logged a full practice and reportedly needs to be cleared for full contact. Furthermore, Seferian-Jenkins expressed some frustration Friday morning, saying that he isn't sure why he hasn't been cleared by his team's medical staff, reports 620 WDAE. Head coach Lovie Smith was also less than optimistic when asked about his tight end's Week 10 availability, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. It won't be shocking if ASJ ultimately makes his return, but things don't seem to be pointing in that direction.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)After ending last week with a full showing in practice, Seferian-Jenkins was given questionable availability for Sunday's contest against the Giants. However, after testing his shoulder in pregame warmups, he donned street clothes on the sideline, logging his sixth absence in a row. He's now kicking off his third consecutive week with limited activity in drills, but at this point, owners may be a bit skeptical about his ability to suit up, until he actually does so.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)With both Seferian-Jenkins and Vincent Jackson (knee) absent, the Buccaneers will be devoid of viable pass-catchers for a second game in a row. To cover for Seferian-Jenkins at tight end, Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker will be relied upon, though the duo have combined for just 12 catches and 18 targets in 2015.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A second-round pick in the May draft, Seferian-Jenkins won the John Mackey Award as the nation's top collegiate tight end in 2013. He is Washington's all-time leading receiver at the position and also played basketball for the Huskies. An athletic receiver with soft hands, Seferian-Jenkins is a big target at 6-5, 260, and could be a weapon in the red zone, though he might not have enough straight-ahead speed to take advantage of seam routes. He will have competition for targets in Tampa Bay from Brandon Myers, who had 79 receptions in 2012 with the Raiders, and signed with the Bucs in March along with Luke Stocker, to a lesser degree. Seferian-Jenkins' blocking skills, though, make him the most complete tight end of the group and give him a clear advantage for playing time, as coach Lovie Smith said this offseason that blocking is a priority at the position this year.
