John Jenkins: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Jenkins, who is projected to split time with Broderick Bunkley at nose tackle in the Saints' 3-4 defense, is a mammoth space eater on the defensive line, but he'll need to prove he has some pass-rushing chops to have value in IDP leagues.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for John Jenkins.
Jenkins served as a backup defensive tackle for most of 2014, but with Broderick Bunkley sidelined for the latter part of the season, Jenkins responded with some fantasy-worthy IDP performances. He finished the year with 30 tackles (20 solo) and one sack in 12 games. So long as Bunkley is healthy, however, Jenkins holds little fantasy value.
In his rookie season in 2013, Jenkins proved to be a prototypical nose guard in the Saints 3-4 defense, taking on multiple blockers and plugging holes. Jenkins, however, didn't show much as a pass rusher and managed only 21 tackles in 16 games, which limits his fantasy upside.
Drafted in the third round of the 2013 NFL draft, Jenkins will compete for the starting nose tackle position with the Saints. Even if he earns the starting gig, Jenkins will likely be primarily a run-stuffer, limiting his fantasy value.
