Following yet another solid performance last week, New York Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is finally becoming a consistent target. He has the potential to emerge as a top tight end and should be starting in all fantasy football leagues.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins has finally begun to breakout with the New York Jets, following issues that led to his release from Tampa Bay. Seferian-Jenkins has regained his focus and turned over a new leaf, and he’s finally starting to produce when it comes to his fantasy football value.

Seferian-Jenkins is securing his role as a red zone playmaker, scoring a touchdown in each of his past two games. He would’ve scored two last week, had it not been for a controversial replay review. We can expect him to continue this trend on Sunday by scoring a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins.

He faces a favorable matchup this weekend, as the Dolphins have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this year. He’ll be an especially good start in PPR leagues. Seferian-Jenkins averaged seven catches in his past two games, and the Dolphins allow the league’s highest catch-rate to tight ends.

Additionally, his quarterback, Josh McCown, has the second highest completion percentage in the league. These two stats will be a recipe for big fantasy football points out of Seferian-Jenkins.

The 6’5″ Jets tight end is still available in 31 percent of ESPN leagues, so he’d be a great pickup, as the tight end position is shallow. Seferian-Jenkins is currently the No. 16 tight end in terms of fantasy scoring, even after missing two games due to suspension. Although, as the season goes on, expect him to shoot up in the rankings.

Not only is Seferian-Jenkins a great start this weekend, but he’ll be a great start each week moving forward. He finally has his career back on track after a fresh start with the Jets. After regaining his focus and rededicating himself, Seferian-Jenkins could be the answer at tight end the Jets have long been searching for.
