2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jenkins had a disappointing year in 2017, missing six games with an ankle injury and one due to a team suspension. After November ankle surgery, he's healthy this spring, and reports from April workouts were glowing. He's the team's best cover corner and a good source of interceptions, two of which he took to the house last year. Read Past Outlooks

Returns to practice

Jenkins was a full participant in Friday's practice.
ANALYSIS
Jenkins left practice due to a family matter earlier this week, but his return to practice Friday seems to indicate that the cornerback's Week 2 status is not in jeopardy. Expect Jenkins to suit up against the Cowboys on Sunday.

2012
Signed to a widely-criticized $12-million-per-year deal last year, Jenkins delivered in his first season in New York, grading out as one of the top cornerbacks in the league with 18 passes defensed and three interceptions. He's not as valuable as an IDP, however, with only 49 total tackles in 15 games. He'll once again be the team's starting right cornerback this time around.
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.
