Dealing with shin injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-27

Jennings was held out of Wednesday's practice due to a shin injury, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Even tough Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) didn't play last Thursday against the Giants, Jennings didn't experience an appreciable jump in playing time and also matched his season high in targets with three, which he turned into two catches for 31 yards. As the 49ers kick off Week 4 prep, Jennings and Deebo Samuel (ribs/knee) were DNPs, while Aiyuk was limited Wednesday. With the team's top three wide receivers all banged-up to some extent, the overall situation will be one to watch as the weekend draws closer.

Gains 31 yards on TNF

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-22

Jennings caught two of three targets for 31 yards in Thursday's 30-12 win over the Giants.

It was Ray-Ray McCloud who started in place of Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) on Thursday, which kept Jennings in the No. 3 role. The former was not targeted on offense, while Jennings saw his usual allotment of targets and playing time (31 offensive snaps). It wound up being seventh-round rookie Ronnie Bell (2-24-1) who would cash in a score in Aiyuk's absence. It became clear that San Francisco's coaching staff values Jennings in his current role, limiting any potential fantasy upside ahead of a Week 4 matchup against Arizona.

More snaps await Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-21

Jennings is expected to be in line for more playing time in Thursday's game with Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) inactive for the contest, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Receiver Deebo Samuel, tight end George Kittle and running back Christian McCaffrey are likely to rank as the top priorities in the Niners passing game Week 3, but the absence of Aiyuk at least opens up more opportunities for Jennings and Ronnie Bell to play alongside Samuel in two- and three-wide sets. While serving as the 49ers' No. 3 wideout in the first two games of the season, Jennings has handled 33 percent and 48 percent snap shares between Weeks 1 and 2 while accruing a 2-51-0 receiving line on four targets.

Gains 51 yards in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-18

Jennings had two receptions on three targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.

Jennings finished second in receiving yards for the 49ers after being held catchless last week. The 26-year-old made a key play on one of his two receptions when he wrestled the ball away from his defender, turning the play into a 31-yard gain instead of an interception for quarterback Brock Purdy. Despite his strong play Sunday, Jennings is unlikely to see enough targets to warrant consideration outside of deeper formats against the Giants on Thursday.

Finishes with no receptions

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Jennings was held catchless (one target) in Sunday's 30-7 win over the Steelers.

The 49ers had little use for its supporting cast after Brock Purdy, Christian McCaffrey and Brandon Aiyuk carried the offense to a comfortable victory. Jennings wound up seeing the field for 32 percent of the offense's plays, but that number should go up in games that are more competitive than Sunday's blowout. Jennings' next chance to record his first catch of the season will come in a road matchup against the Rams on Sunday.

Signs his one-year tender

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-04-17

The 49ers re-signed Jennings to a one-year, $940,000 contract Monday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Jennings signed the dotted line Monday in order to get on the field for the start of the 49ers' offseason workout program this week. The seventh-round pick in 2020 has developed into a key member of San Francisco's offense as the third wideout and slot man. He has 59 catches for 698 yards and six touchdowns over the last two seasons.

Filled slot role in 2022

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-02-05

Jennings finished with 35 receptions (56 targets) for 416 yards and a touchdown in 16 regular-season games with San Francisco this season.

Jennings saw his offensive usage rise as the 49ers' slot receiver in his sophomore campaign. However, the 6-foot-3 wideout was unable to break through as a fantasy asset due to a lack of touchdowns. Jennings is scheduled to become a free agent this upcoming offseason, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him stay in San Francisco after carving out a solid role this year.

Ready for divisional round

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-20

Jennings (ankle) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round game versus the Cowboys, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Jennings operated under practice restrictions Wednesday and Thursday due to an ankle injury, but it won't impact his ability to suit up for the second round of the playoffs. With Deebo Samuel available the last two games, Jennings has moved back to a complementary role behind Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk, gathering in three of seven targets for 51 yards during that span.

Remains limited Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-19

Jennings (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

As he did Wednesday, giving Jennings just one more chance to get back to all activity before the 49ers potentially hand him a designation for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Cowboys. In 17 appearances this season (including playoffs), he's been targeted at least twice on every occasion, which likely is what he'll be in store for this weekend, if active, with fellow wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk available to the offense.
