The Patriots are releasing TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He’s taking a step away for a month for personal issues and the team will release him as he does that," Rapoport adds. "We’ll see if he comes back to New England or anywhere." Seferian-Jenkins has had alcohol-abuse problems in the past, although it's unclear if this is related. With TE Ben Watson suspended for the first 4 games of the season, Matt LaCosse and Stephen Anderson are currently atop the Patriots' Week 1 depth chart.

The Patriots on Wednesday signed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins to a 1-year deal at the league minimum. The contract doesn't guarantee a thing for ASJ, but it does place him in 1 of the league's most attractive situations. Rob Gronkowski's retirement and Dwayne Allen's departure left New England returning just 5 TE receptions (by Jacob Hollister) from last year's team. Seferian-Jenkins has never played more than 13 games in an NFL season and has only once played more than 9. But he has also scored TDs on 9.5% of his 116 career catches. If he can enter the year as the position's top option for the Pats, there will be top-12 per-game fantasy upside to him. At the moment, ASJ makes for a solid mid-level TE2 option in best-ball drafts.

The Jaguars have placed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core) on IR. He's been playing through this core-muscle injury all season but must have aggravated it in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. ASJ is reportedly a candidate to be designated for return after 8 weeks, but he's not worth hanging on to in fantasy leagues. James O'Shaughnessy and Niles Paul will handle TE duties for Jacksonville in Seferian-Jenkins' absence, but neither is a viable fantasy option right now.

Jaguars TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core) is not listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday after sitting out Wednesday and being limited Thursday. ASJ should be a full-go for a plus matchup against a Giants defense that coughed up a league-high 13 TDs to TEs last year. He's firmly on the Week 1 spot-start radar.
