Fantasy Football Sleepers to Target in 2016 – Number 12: Austin Seferian-Jenkins
Austin Seferian-Jenkins is the second tight end to appear on this list, and he’s another case of getting bit frequently by the injury bug. In other words, he’s the definition of a sleeper tight end.
He’s a great backup option and could help your team if he can keep himself healthy in 2016.
When healthy, Seferian-Jenkins is a monster. In his first game of 2015, he gave his owners 23 fantasy points (though he was likely on the bench in most leagues), but after week two he was injured for most of the season.
Upon returning, Seferian-Jenkins didn’t record more than 12 points, but he was able to scrap up at least three in every game after returning.
Jameis Winston is the guy throwing to Austin Seferian-Jenkins and it’s shown that the two have a great chemistry on the field. ASJ can be downright nasty when healthy, but it’s the “when healthy” part that one needs to be cautious of.
Don’t draft the Buccaneers tight end with the hopes of him being your number one guy. He’s a great backup option and could help your team if he can keep himself healthy in 2016.
