A.J. Jenkins WR DAL 2 months ago

Jenkins has signed with the Cowboys, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

A surprising first-round selection by the 49ers in 2012, Jenkins never panned out in San Francisco or Kansas City, despite playing for teams that were far from loaded at his position. He has good speed and decent size (6-0, 200 pounds), but he'll likely be facing an uphill battle to earn one of the final roster spots in Dallas.

Jenkins was released by the Chiefs on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.A former-first round draft pick of the 49ers, Jenkins was traded for fellow first-round bust Jon Baldwin in August of 2013. Neither receiver ended up making an impact in his new home, with Jenkins unable to take advantage of his team's glaring lack of talent at the position. His status as a former first-rounder shouldn't be mistaken for upside, as Jenkins is a one-dimensional speedster who was widely viewed as a reach in the 2012 draft. He'll generate some kind of interest as a free agent, but will presumably have to compete for a roster spot in training camp.

With Donnie Avery also out, the likes of Frankie Hammond, Junior Hemgway and De'Anthony Thomas are candidates to see looks behind top wideout Dwayne Bowe, but neither of the trio are any more than Week 12 fantasy darts.

Jenkins caught one pass (four targets) for 27 yards Sunday against the Bills.

Jenkins continues to receive starts with Donnie Avery dealing with a groin injury, but hasn't produced enough to be fantasy-relevant. Avery should return soon, further diminishing his value.

Jenkins caught a pass for 10 yards on three targets Sunday against the Jets.

Jenkins saw the second most snaps of the wide receivers, but didn't do much offensively. The offense is largely predicated on the run and Alex Smith likes tight ends, leaving little left for the second wideout.
