2019 Fantasy Outlook
Jenkins specializes more in setting the edge than rushing the passer, although the 2016 third-rounder certainly showed development in the latter skill with seven sacks last season after combining for only 5.5 over his first two NFL campaigns. He should continue to see consistent snaps at defensive end, and opposing offenses will be game-planning around stopping Leonard and Quinnen Williams on the interior rather than Jenkins, but there are plenty of more exciting options out there at his position.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Jenkins was billed as a high-floor, low-ceiling outside linebacker prior to getting selected in the third round of the 2016 draft, and that's exactly what he's been in his first two years. A smart and tough player who knows how to set the edge, Jenkins simply lacks the pass-rushing ability to take his game to the next level. You can expect a third consecutive campaign over 40 tackles if he stays healthy, but it would be a surprise if Jenkins significantly exceeds last season's career-best 3.0 sacks.
Jenkins is likely to have a bigger role in the Jets' defense this season, a unit that figures to be on the field for a high number of snaps due to the offense's expected struggles. He isn't much of a pass rusher and isn't like to rack up enough tackles to make him an attractive IDP prospect.
