A. J. Jenkins WR KC 11 Days
Jenkins caught two passes for 37 yards Sunday against the Chargers.
Jenkins had his most productive game of the season Sunday, going for over 20 yards receiving for the first time this season. His two receptions were his only two targets, however, placing him behind Dwayne Bowe, Travis Kelce and Jamaal Charles in that category.

Jenkins caught just one pass for three yards in Sunday's loss at San Francisco.
Jenkins was expected to see an expanded role, with Donnie Avery (hernia) out of the lineup, but Junior Hemingway was the one that produced, making four catches for 50 yards to lead Kansas City's passing attack.

With Donnie Avery sidelined, Jenkins is in line to see an expanded role Sunday against the 49ers, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson has identified Jenkins as the player slated to serve as the Chiefs' No. 2 wideout in Avery's absence. While a timetable hasn't been established for Avery's return, his core muscle injury will require surgery, which suggests that Jenkins' added opportunities will stretch beyond Week 5, a scenario that makes him worth a speculative add in deeper formats.

Jenkins rushed one time for no gain and failed to catch a pass against the Dolphins on Sunday.
The Chiefs rarely use more than three receivers at one time, and Jenkins barely sees the field as a result. He took six offensive snaps in Sunday's game, receiving a carry on one but doing little else. He will likely continue to have minimal value barring an injury.

Jenkins (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Titans, the Tennessean reports.
Jenkins should be available to the Chiefs in Week 1, though he's a break or two away from fantasy relevance in most formats.

Jenkins was forced out of Thursday's preseason finale with a concussion.
Fellow wideout Kyle Williams hurt his shoulder in the game, so when the dust settles in the coming days, the Chiefs may be looking to bolster their depth at the position.

Jenkins, who didn't suit up for the Chiefs' preseason opener because of a sore hamstring, has returned to practice, ESPN.com reports.
At this stage, Jenkins is behind Dwayne Boweand Donnie Avery in the Chiefs' wideout pecking order, but if either of the aforementioned receivers suffers an injury going forward, Jenkins and/or Junior Hemingway would presumably be in line for added looks in the team's offense.

ESPN Chiefs blogger Adam Teicher reports WR A.J. Jenkins "hasn't mounted any kind of challenge" for the No.2 receiver job.
Jenkins has been limited in OTAs due to injuries, but is mostly working with the second-team offense. Donnie Avery has been consistent as the No. 2 wideout, with De'Anthony Thomas and Junior Hemingway getting looks in the slot. Jenkins was talked up as a possible starter in the offseason, but Teicher suggests the Chiefs aren't ready to give up on Avery. 24-year-old Jenkins is due a $1.02 million base salary in 2014.

Coach Andy Reid referred to WR A.J. Jenkins as a "capable player."
"I thought he made big strides last year," the coach said. Reid was mainly referring to Week 17, when Jenkins got a chance to start and responded with three catches for 67 yards. However, the Chiefs' offseason pursuit of Emmanuel Sanders and expectation that they'll select a receiver high in next week's draft speak volumes. The consistently underachieving Jenkins will have to earn his snaps in training camp.

GM John Dorsey expects A.J. Jenkins to have a "really nice second season" with the Chiefs.
Dorsey's comments come after ESPN's Louis Riddick reported earlier this month that the Chiefs are "very excited about" Jenkins. While we wouldn't go rushing to acquire Jenkins in Dynasty leagues, the Chiefs certainly got the better of the Jenkins/Jon Baldwin swap. He'll get some run as the Chiefs' No. 3/4 receiver in 2014, and may even fight for snaps opposite Dwayne Bowe.
