Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Curiously, Jennings has been taking reps exclusively as the team's nickel back since rejoining practices, but the expectation is that he'll be one of the starters at corner back by the time Week 1 rolls around. Rookie Kyle Fuller has had a strong camp to this point, but he's probably not quite ready to displace either Jennings or Charles Tillman, both of whom have multiple Pro Bowl berths under their belts.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

With Charles Tillman limited to eight games due to injuries in 2013, Jennings was tasked with matching up with the opposition's No. 1 receiver for half of the season, resulting in diminished effectiveness. He saw his interception total cut in half from nine to four, while his tackle total remained stable. Jennings is best utilized as a high-quality No. 2 cornerback, a role he should be able to reprise if Tillman can stay on the field with more regularity this season. The Bears will also added first-round selection Kyle Fuller to the cornerback mix during May's draft, whose presence could allow both Tillman and Jennings to remain fresher over the course of the campaign.

2013

Jennings bounced back from a lackluster 2011 to lead the league with nine interceptions and make the Pro Bowl as a starter with fellow cornerback Charles Tillman. Jennings and Tillman should remain one of the better corner duos again in 2013, though given Jennings' lackluster career production to date, it wouldn't be surprising if his interception total dropped precipitously.

2012

Jennings is a Lovie Smith favorite, but now has some competition at corner after the Bears signed Kelvin Hayden. While Jennings won't blow you away with stats, he'll continue to get lots of opportunities to make plays as teams shy away from Charles Tillman.

2011

Jennings finished 2010 as the starting left corner, but will enter 2011 having to battle against Zack Bowman for that honor again.

2010

Signed by the Bears this offseason to provide depth at cornerback.

2009

Jennings started 12 games in 2008, filling in for the injured Marlin Jackson and Kelvin Hayden. He played his first injury free season since being selected in the second round of the 2006 draft and was part of the Colts defensive crew that allowed the least passing touchdowns in NFL history. He recorded 68 tackles, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries in the 2008 season and should be a solid option at third cornerback for the Colts in 2009.

2008

Jennings will serve as one of the Colts' backups at cornerback behind Marlin Jackson and Kelvin Hayden and will compete with Dante Hughes for the designation as the team's nickelback.

2007

Jason David and Nick Harper are gone, providing young players like Jennings with a chance to play their way into major roles in Indianapolis’ now-suspect secondary. Jennings figures to be one of the leading candidates for the nickel cornerback job, but doesn’t warrant consideration as an IDP.

2006

He has the speed to add depth right away to the secondary, but will be hurt by his size (5-8, 180 pounds). He has a shot at winning playing time at nickelback if he's healthy this summer.
