Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins not being rushed

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 16:45:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) remains uncertain for the Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons. TEs Cameron Brate, Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker has combined for just 11 catches, 95 yards and zero touchdowns on 16 targets in Seferian-Jenkins' absence. However, the Bucs aren't rushing Seferian-Jenkins back into action if he's not ready.

Fantasy Tip: Seferian-Jenkins ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) could be a game-time decision this week against Atlanta after being limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday. Considering what he did in Week 1 (five catches, 110 yards and two touchdowns), he'd certainly be attractive as a value play on FantasyScore against a Falcons team allowing 16.1 fantasy points per game to the position this year.

Buccaneers | ASF injury opens up playing time

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 11:35:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TEs Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker will take the majority of snaps at tight end with TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) sidelined. Myers is the better pass-catcher, while Stocker is more of a blocking tight end. TE Cameron Brate was also elevated to the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Myers ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Stocker ($2,000) are both extremely deep sleepers for daily gamers. If you're going to gamble on one of them, Myers should be your pick.

Buccaneers | Timothy Wright struggling

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 19:23:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright has been struggling with his catching and blocking during practice, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "He's dropped some balls. If you watched practice, he's dropped balls. But he's a big part of what we want to do with the two-receiver, two-tight-end set. Tim hasn't blocked as well inside. Once you're that H-back and you don't block, now they say you're just another receiver and teams start going nickel. If they do that at least you have to be a good pass catcher. Tim's a good player. He just hasn't played as well as he needs to lately," Smith said. Wright may have to compete with TE Luke Stocker for a roster spot if he does not improve his play.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins may be behind

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 13:23:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins may not receive much playing time in the short term, although he's likely to be the team's long-term answer at the position. He will not take part in the team's offseason program, which could put him behind in the competition, and TEs Brandon Myers, Timothy Wright and Luke Stocker all have more experience.

Fantasy Tip: Wright made nice strides last season in this offense, but remember, Lovie Smith is now head coach, and tight ends have never been a big part of his offenses. If anything, the tight ends on roster will give Josh McCown a nice red zone option. Seferian-Jenkins is an intriguing player, but don't overspend on him as your TE2.

Buccaneers | Serious competition at tight end

Mon, 15 Jul 2013 16:11:30 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will likely have significant competition at tight end during training camp, with TE Luke Stocker likely having the upper hand in that competition going into camp. TEs Tom Crabtree Nate Byham, Danny Noble and Zach X. Miller will all challenge for playing time as well. "The position as a whole, I think they're working their tails off," Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said. "Certainly we need to have production out of that position. So we need them to come up big."

Fantasy Tip: This one may take a while to sort out, but you would have to think Stocker and Crabtree have the early upper hand to see most of the playing time. Keep an eye on how the reps are split during training camp and preseason games to get an idea of how the Buccaneers plan to use them.
