|It has been widely recognized that rookie quarterbacks lean on the tight end as they become more adept at becoming a downfield passer in the NFL. If this adage stays true for the Bucs this season, then the most talented offensive tight end on the roster is Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Tampa Bay thought highly enough of his large athletic frame to make him a second-round draft choice in last year’s draft. The former college basketball player wasn’t used much in the offense last year, but his role figures to expand greatly in 2015. With veterans Brandon Myers and Tim Wright among the other options on the roster for run blocking, Seferian-Jenkins should see the bulk of the position’s targets, including those in the red zone. His lack of a track record will depress his value, but his upside should make him one of the better TE2 gambles on draft day.

FFToday's Take: With Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) unlikely to play, Mike Evans will once again be a target monster for the Bucs against the Cowboys.

FFToday's Take: The Bucs tight end has missed six games with a shoulder injury but got in some limited practices this week. Mike Evans will once again be the main target for Jameis Winston is ASJ sis.
| ASJ could be sidelined 4-6 weeks, shoulder injury|

|The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are facing the possibility of being without second-year tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins for at least the next month. Seferian-Jenkins suffered a shoulder strain during the Bucs 26-19 victory over the Saints on Sunday, an injury that could keep him out for a month, a source with knowledge of the situation said.
FFToday's Take: ASJ came out of the gate hot with 110 yards and 2 TDs in Week 1. He'll now be sidelined likely until Week 7. The Bucs have a bye in Week 6. Brandon Myers and Luke Stocker will see increased snaps at tight end, but both hold little fantasy value.
