|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: V-Jax is likely done for the season as the Bucs are clinging to very slim playoff hopes. His absence figures to lead to more opportunities for Mike Evans, who saw nine, 19 and 13 targets in the games Jackson missed earlier this season, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Buccaneers get their tight end back

FFToday's Take: ASJ has dealt with a shoulder injury for much of the season and after turning in limited practices for weeks, he will finally see the field on gameday. His usage remains a mystery so he won't be a recommended fantasy play today, but should be on your radar if you're hurting at the tight end position.
