2020 Fantasy Outlook
Jennings, who spent the past two seasons with the Titans, profiles as a possible kick return option for the Chargers, although he was essentially supplanted in that role in 2019. The 27-year-old has a total of 27 career receptions in three NFL seasons, and thus isn't expected to act as anything more than wide receiver depth should he fail to win the return job.

Agent Ed Wasielewski announced Saturday via Twitter that Jennings signed a contract with the Chargers.
ANALYSIS
The 27-year-old appeared in eight games for the Titans in 2019 and was a restricted free agent, but the team apparently declined to tender him a contract for 2020. Jennings averaged 31.7 yards on 22 kick returns during the 2018 campaign with Tennessee, and that could be his likeliest path toward a roster spot in Los Angeles.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2016
Jennings reached the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2015 with the Cleveland Browns but has been a member of the Titans since the 2017 season. Though he hasn't made a big impact as a receiver -- he has just 25 catches across his four seasons -- Jennings has created a niche for himself as a kick returner. He made quite an impact as a member of the special teams unit in 2018, returning a kick for a touchdown in Week 1 while totaling 22 returns for 689 yards across the entirety of the season. Additionally, his 31.7 average yards per return was good enough to set a new franchise record. While Jennings will once again be buried on the wide receiver depth chart, he will almost certainly make the team as a kick return specialist once again in 2019.
Across four total appearances in 2015, Jennings amassed just 14 receptions for 117 yards, good for a middling 8.4 YPC. Nonetheless, he remains a long shot to make the Brown's final roster.
