Week 12: vs Carolina Panthers

All TE vs CAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. Against all odds, Josh McCown has both remained upright and been a stabilizing force at quarterback for the rebuilding Jets. McCown has greatly curbed his scattershot ways, posting by far the best completion rate of his career and the league's 19th-most adjusted yards per attempt. Of course, the cost of that sanitized production is typically dynamism, and this passing game boasts no fantasy appeal outside of wideout Robby Anderson and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Anderson has carried over nicely from 2016 as a productive deep threat, posting 4 games of 76+ yards and catching 5 touchdowns, including his current 4-game scoring streak. He's the closest thing to a WR1 in this offense and a weekly threat to catch a long touchdown. Seferian-Jenkins has struggled for efficiency (just 7.4 yards per reception) as an exceptionally low-aDOT target, but provided fantasy-TE1 volume with his 78% catch rate. The Panthers pass defense has been generally strong through 2017, with very few hiccups. They've allowed the league's ninth-fewest net yards per attempt (which factors in sacks) and fourth-fewest raw yards. There are occasional lapses in coverage, though: while only 7 teams have allowed fewer completions of 20+ yards, the Panthers have benefited mightily from several easy-touchdown drops (think Julio Jones' inexplicable goof in Week 9. Still, opponents' deep balls are often neutralized by the Panthers' explosive pass rush, which sits fourth in the league in sacks. The bottom line is that this unit is generally difficult to throw against, but not necessarily a prohibitive one.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 10 vs TB (9 / 6 / 67 / 0 rec)

Playing against his former team, Seferian-Jenkins was held catch-less for 54 minutes. Seferian-Jenkins, however, made an impact as New York was attempting a late rally. Seferian-Jenkins found space on in-breaking routes over the middle of the field. He had a long catch-and-run of 28 yards on a deep seam route.

2017 Week 9 vs BUF (2 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Bad touchdown luck reared its head once again! A second-quarter touchdown was taken off the board due to a questionable offensive pass inference call. Seferian-Jenkins and the defender engaged in a highly physical confrontation, that resulted in a stalemate before the big tight end lurched into the end zone and hauled in the touchdown strike. New York settled for a field goal. Outside of this play, Seferian-Jenkins secured an 18-yard grab on a deep seam route.

2017 Week 8 vs ATL (5 / 5 / 28 / 0 rec)

Seferian-Jenkins didn't dominate like he has in prior weeks, but made a few tough grabs over the middle. On the second-to-last play of the game, Seferian-Jenkins made an 11-yard grab, but took a low hit to his hip. He hobbled back to the line of scrimmage, but was clearly in pain. His status is worth monitoring.

2017 Week 7 vs MIA (5 / 3 / 21 / 1 rec)

Another week, another touchdown for the big tight end. In the third quarter, McCown found an uncovered Seferian-Jenkins in the back of the end zone for a 10-yard touchdown. Miami fell asleep on the play, but a touchdown is a touchdown.

2017 Week 6 vs NE (11 / 8 / 46 / 1 rec)

Another week, another strong performance by Seferian-Jenkins. The big tight end scored the first touchdown, a 1-yard lob on a corner route. Matched up against Elandon Roberts, Seferian-Jenkins made a strong move inside before breaking to the back pylon. In the fourth quarter, Seferian-Jenkins scored his second touchdown on a 4-yard dump off, but a controversial replay decision overturned the touchdown. The replay officials ruled Seferian-Jenkins lost full possession in the end zone, resulting in a touchback. It was a highly controversial decision. When he wasn't breaking into the end zone, Seferian-Jenkins operated over the middle, making tough catches in traffic.

2017 Week 5 vs CLE (8 / 6 / 29 / 1 rec)

He's back! Seferian-Jenkins saw a team-high eight targetsˇand made the most of them. In the third quarter, McCown hit Austin Seferian-Jenkins on a fade route for a 2-yard touchdown. New York rolled out a three-by-one look, with Seferian-Jenkins matched one-on-one against the boundary defender. Seferian-Jenkins high-pointed the ball, using his size to win against a smaller defender. It was an easy pitch-and-catch. Seferian-Jenkins did not have any long catches and runs, but he routinely used his big body and physically to separate from smaller defenders.

2017 Week 4 vs JAX (4 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)

Austin Seferian-Jenkins was a force over the middle of the field. Working against Jacksonville's undersized linebackers, Seferian-Jenkins used his bigger frame to create separation. Seferian-Jenkins had a long gain of 27 yards on a deep seam route.

2017 Week 3 vs MIA (6 / 5 / 31 / 0 rec)

Austin Seferian-Jenkins made his 2017 debut---and looked very solid. Working against smaller linebackers and safety, Seferian-Jenkins used his big body to win inside position. He had a long catch-and-run of 13 yards on a slant route.

Our View: Seferian-Jenkins didn't score and it took some garbage time production to make his week a good one for fantasy teams. The Jets offense struggled for the first time in a while, but Seferian-Jenkins should be held and still considered a TE1 through his bye.
