Fantasy Football: Start or Sit Austin Seferian-Jenkins in Week Five?

Waiver Wire Tight End

Last offseason, there were few fantasy football values I liked more than Austin Seferian-Jenkins. ASJ was a physical phenom in a TE-centric offense. Remember Cam Brate’s breakout 2016? That was supposed to be his. Instead, ASJ screamed and drunk drove his way off of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Jets picked him up, and he played a bit, but he mostly spent 2016 getting his head right. Now he’s long-since sober and has turned his life around in one of the better NFL stories.

Since returning to the Jets, he accounts for just about one-in-five Josh McCown passes. He is ramping back into football shape and hasn’t done much yet, but that’s sure to change this weekend. The Jets travel to Cleveland, where the Browns allow the second-most fantasy points per game to tight ends so far on the season. ASJ is their best weapon, and is a virtual lock for a touchdown this weekend, as the Browns gave up four touchdowns through their first four games.

 

And with that, I leave you with a song:

JETs – Rollover ASJ

Got your plays going ‘round in my head
Got your super size and speed for a tight end
So catch some passes come on
Play the game

I wanna streaming TE, that feels right
And you’re out on the waiver wires, to my delight
So tell me that you’re making a play
For my team

Hey! You start ASJ
You’re catching his play
Right on time
Hey, Cleveland’s who he plays
And I gotta say, I don’t mind
Hey, you start ASJ, Cleveland’s TE blind

 

Well I know that you think you need a star
A streaming tight end move will get you so far
So tell me you ain’t afraid
To start ASJ?

 

Hey, you start ASJ
He’s wasting away
On the wire
Hey, I care who you play
And Cleveland’s who he plays, and I don’t mind
Hey, you start ASJ, if you have a mind

 

Hey! You start ASJ
You’re catching his play
Right on time
Hey, Cleveland’s who he plays
And a big Sunday is on the line
Play whoever you play, cause I don’t mind
Hey, you start ASJ, if you have a mind
Hey, you start ASJ, if you have a mind
Hey, you start ASJ, if you have a mind
