Janoris Jenkins: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Signed to replace the departed Prince Amukamara, Jenkins should see plenty of passes thrown his way, given the presence of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the opposite side. Jenkins probably isn't worth the $12 million/year contract to which he was signed, but the money guarantees a heavy snap count every Sunday, and his aggressive, gambling style should net him a few picks again in 2016.
Jenkins is a high-risk, high-reward corner and furthered that reputation in 2014. He did register 61 tackles and two interceptions (both for touchdowns), but only had five pass deflections and was the victim of some deep touchdowns late in the season. If he can avoid the bad mistakes a little more, Jenkins and E.J. Gaines could form one of the more formidable cornerback duos in the NFC.
Jenkins took a step back in 2013 after a spectacular rookie season in which he scored five touchdowns. He was hampered at times by a back injury and still registered 61 tackles in 16 games, but his one interception in 2013 limits his IDP value.
Jenkins will start at corner opposite Cortland Finnegan as he looks to continue the success he found in his rookie season last year.
Jenkins will battle fellow rookie Trumaine Johnson and veteran Bradley Fletcher for the starting cornerback job opposite Cortland Finnegan. We expect him to win that battle and give the Rams one of the better pairs of starting corners in the league.
