Jenkins (chest) took part in team drills for the first time all summer Sunday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

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.
Jenkins (chest) was placed on the PUP list (physically unable to perform) on Monday, reports ESPN.com. It had previously been reported that Jenkins underwent a minor pectoral surgery this summer but that he was expected to be healthy in time for training camp.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for John Jenkins.

2015

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.

2014

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.

2013

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.
