Jennings only had 19 receptions for 208 yards and one touchdown despite playing in every game this season. Jennings still has a contract to play in Miami next season but the emergence of Rishard Matthews and DeVante Parker relegated him to a backup roll in the second half of the season. The Dolphins and Jennings could look to part ways during the off-season.
Jennings was targeted once in Sunday's win over the Eagles, catching a nine-yard pass. After averaging over 40 snaps per game in the season's first four contests, Jennings has seen his role in Miami reduced dramatically under interim head coach Dan Campbell. In five games under Campbell, Jennings has yet to top 28 snaps and has been held in the single digits four times, including a season low of two on Sunday. Not surprisingly, Jennings production has suffered as a result, as he has combined for just four catches in the five games.
Jennings was targeted twice, but did not record a catch in Sunday's loss to Buffalo. Jennings has now been held catchless in consecutive games, seeing the field on just eight total snaps in the Dolphins' losses to New England and Buffao, according to Pro Football Focus. Not surprisingly, Kenny Stills saw his second and third biggest games of the season during the contests. Firmly situated as Miami's No. 4 receiver on a team with an excellent pass-catching running back in Lamar Miller, Jennings is unlikely to generate enough points to warrant inclusion on fantasy teams.
Jennings caught two passes off of two targets for 37 yards in Sunday's win over Houston. The 37 yards were Jennings most of the season thus far. The Dolphins went unusually run-heavy on Sunday while playing with a big lead, but don't expect a huge shift in the opposite direction with interim head coach Dan Campbell preachng physicality. When Miami does throw the ball, Jennings sits far behind Jarvis Landry, Rishard Matthews and Jordan Cameron in the pecking order, the trio combining for a combined 58 percent of the team's targets this season.
Jennings caught one pass off of one target for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. The veteran receiver has been held to one or no catches in three of the Dolphins' five games this season. Aftering being brought in to bring a veteran presence to the Dolphins' receiving corps, Jennings ranks sixth on the team in receptions and fourth in targets through six weeks. With the Dolphins appearing committed to running the football more, Jennings may see his role reduced even further.
