Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 16 vs LAR (1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones' struggles continued in Week 16 with a single target, his lowest total of the season. Seals-Jones corralled a short crossing route but was passed by a myriad of other Cardinals pass-catchers in the pecking order against the Rams. Seals-Jones' touchdown-less streak continued to 12 games and the converted wide receiver is barely averaging 10 yards-per-catch on the season.
2018 Week 15 vs ATL (8 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones continued his futility against the Falcons, seeing a team-high eight targets translating into a mere 22 yards. Seals-Jones dropped a deep out route and his end zone target fell harmlessly to the ground as his long scoring opportunity. Seals-Jones has not scored since Week 3 and has failed to produce despite Arizona searching for ancillary pass-catchers with Christian Kirk out for the season.
2018 Week 13 vs GB (3 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones has shifted from relevant to forgettable in recent weeks, logging his third straight game with 10 yards or less through the air and a single reception in each game. Seals-Jones' lone catch was a contested play on third down, but his snaps have waned since the return of Jermaine Gresham and Seals-Jones has gone 19 receptions, spanning nine games, without a touchdown this season.
2018 Week 12 vs LAC (2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones was invisible against the Chargers in the blowout loss. Seals-Jones' lone opportunity for an impact play was an end zone target broken up in tight coverage. Seals-Jones has lost snaps to Jermaine Gresham and Arizona's tempered passing game shifts down weekly expectations for the Seals-Jones, who has a mere 10 receiving yards over the past two games.
2018 Week 11 vs OAK (3 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones has waned in offensive involvement since Jermaine Gresham returned to the lineup and this week was no exception. Seals-Jones' lone catch was a give up play on third-and-long as Arizona threw well short of the sticks in the fourth quarter against the Raiders. Seals-Jones has not scored since Week 3 and has caught less than half his targets.
2018 Week 10 vs KC (9 / 5 / 51 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones had a marginal game against the Chiefs. After getting wide open for 20 yards on a deep out on the opening drive, Seals-Jones disappeared for much of the game. Seals-Jones logged two garbage time catches to pad his stat line, but had one a third down conversion over the middle three quarters of the game. Outside of a touchdown, it is difficult to expect a strong game from Seals-Jones considering the limitations of the Arizona passing attack.
2018 Week 8 vs SF (4 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones saw at least four targets for the seventh game this season, but it was a nondescript game for the tight end against San Francisco. Seals-Jones logged an ugly drop with two minutes to play and was tackled immediately for a loss on an outlet target on one of his catches. The only notable contribution was a wide open crossing route for a chunk gain. Seals-Jones is an ancillary option in Arizona's muted passing game, needing a Josh Rosen uptick in the second half of the season if Seals-Jones' production is to improve.
2018 Week 7 vs DEN (4 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones was minimally-involved in the blowout loss to Denver. There was concern Seals-Jones might have broken his arm in the second half, but early reports are a bruise as positive news. Seals-Jones added a quick out route and crossing route receptions for his protracted performance with San Francisco a rebound matchup opportunity up next.
2018 Week 6 vs MIN (6 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones played well against Minnesota, showing his hybrid wide receiver and tight end profile downfield. Seals-Jones' production centered on two chunk gains, one a perfectly thrown deep ball by Josh Rosen into tight coverage. In previous games, Seals-Jones has struggled to locate the ball early enough to make a quality attempt at the reception, but the timing was perfect in this instance. Seals-Jones' lone opportunity for a touchdown came on a contested goal line target which had minimal chance to be completed. With wide receivers outside of Christian Kirk rarely impacting the offense, Seals-Jones is turning into one of Arizona's viable downfield threats.
2018 Week 5 vs SF (6 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones did not register a catch against the 49ers, but it was not his fault. The converted tight end separated a handful of times only to see the most inaccurate throws of the game by Josh Rosen in those situations. Seals-Jones had opportunities on a seam route, out route, and a deep target, all misfired by the rookie quarterback. Seals-Jones also took a long reception by Christian Kirk off the board with an offensive pass interference penalty.
2018 Week 4 vs SEA (4 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones was silent until late in the third quarter against Seattle. While Seals-Jones added a drop in the game, he also corralled two of Josh Rosen's best throws on a deep sideline route and a corner route, both times exhibiting quality ball skills. Seals-Jones, a converted wide receiver, is at his best when making a play above the rim and down the field. With Rosen under center, expect Seals-Jones to be at his best with more downfield opportunities.
2018 Week 3 vs CHI (3 / 1 / 35 / 1 rec)
Seals-Jones had a single catch against the Bears, a wide open corner route touchdown in the opening minutes as Arizona sprinted out to an early lead. It was a coverage bust as Seals-Jones burst to the end zone without a defender in the area. Seals-Jones also logged a drop in the game. Jermaine Gresham's return to the lineup softens Seals-Jones' target upside as another viable tight end presence.
2018 Week 2 vs LAR (6 / 4 / 17 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones led the Cardinals in targets against the Rams, but the result was a mere 17 yards. Seals-Jones, the wide receiver convert struggled to separate or find any opportunities after the catch, running mostly out routes and crossing patterns. On his lone opportunity down the field, a slant route on third down, Seals-Jones' target was broken up by a lured defensive back. While the starter, Seals-Jones has yet to show some of the big play ability from last year.
2018 Week 1 vs WAS (6 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
Seals-Jones rarely left the field as Arizona's starting tight end. His impact was minimal, however, has Seals-Jones' long deep target was tipped away by a well-covering defender. On two quick out route receptions, Seals-Jones was tackled immediately. Seals-Jones did have a touchdown opportunity with an end zone target from the red zone, but Sam Bradford underthrew Seals-Jones in the closing minutes of the game.
