26-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
San Francisco 49ers
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Jennings fortified his hold on the 49ers' slot receiver role in his third year as a pro last season. The 25-year-old was unable to build on the five touchdowns he tallied in 2021, finishing with just one score to go with his 35 receptions and 416 yards. If Jennings and his 6-3 frame can improve in the red zone this year, he would see a boost to his current fantasy value. The 2020 seventh-round pick doesn't have the athleticism of fellow wideouts Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk, but Jennings will provide strong run blocking and sure hands for San Francisco in the fall.

Gets second-round tender
WRSan Francisco 49ers
March 11, 2024
The Niners gave Jennings a second-round restricted free agent tender Monday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
ANALYSIS
This gives the Niners the right to match any offer Jennings receives from another team, with a second-round pick coming back in return if they decline. No team is going to give up a pick that early for the right to hand Jennings a considerable contract, meaning a trade is now the only way he'd end up on a new team for 2024. While he hasn't seen many targets as the No. 3 receiver in a loaded offense, Jennings had Super Bowl MVP hype at one point in the big game when it looked like the Niners might win and he had a passing TD and a receiving score. Fantasy relevance in 2024 seems unlikely if fellow wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel both are on the team and healthy.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could play more Sunday
WRSan Francisco 49ers
January 24, 2024
Jennings could be on track to work as a starting wide receiver in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Lions, after Deebo Samuel was a non-participant in Wednesday's walkthrough due to a shoulder injury, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Samuel injured his left shoulder in the divisional-round win over the Packers this past Saturday. He's looking iffy for the NFC Championship Game, and if Samuels ends up being sidelined versus the Lions, Jennings would be the logical next man up to step in as the team's No. 2 receiver behind Brandon Aiyuk. After Samuel suffered the injury in the first quarter of the win over Green Bay and missed the entire second half, Jennings proceeded to finish with a season-high 61 receiving yards to help lead the 49ers to victory.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2020
Jennings took on the vacated slot receiver role once veteran Mohamed Sanu went down to injury midseason. A seventh-round pick in 2020, Jennings thrived in a more prominent role, racking up 21 receptions (on 32 targets) for 251 yards and four touchdowns over the final nine games of the regular season. Blessed with a 6-3, 212-pound frame, the third-year wideout provides a reliable red-zone target with plus blocking. Perhaps Jennings generates fantasy appeal in his current role at third on the Week 1 projected depth chart if Trey Lance can open up San Francisco's passing game.
The 49ers selected Jennings with its final pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-3 wideout brings much-needed size to the team's receiving corps following the season-ending injury to Jalen Hurd. What the 23-year-old lacks in speed (4.72 40-yard dash), he makes up for in soft hands and strong after-the-catch ability (29 broken tackles in his senior year at Tennessee). Jennings will have to prove his worth during training camp to squeeze onto the 53-man roster, but he will also be practice squad eligible as well.
