Jenkins (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Jenkins started the first 15 games of the season. The 2017 fourth-round pick posted career highs in tackles (84), sacks (one) and pass breakups (four). He added two interceptions as well. Jenkins will be a free agent in March.
Jenkins made 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bills. Jenkins set a new career high in tackles during this performance. The fourth-year safety has started every game for the Chargers this season because Derwin James (knee) is on IR, and he's cashed in on the opportunity with 70 stops through 11 outings. He'll hit triple digits at this rate.
Jenkins recorded seven tackles (six solo), two pass breakups and an interception in Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Broncos. Jenkins has now posted seven or more tackles in four of the last five games, but these were his first marks in the pass breakup and interception columns this year. His playing time has been consistent, playing all of the defensive snaps in five straight contests. Jenkins could be busy again Week 9 when Josh Jacobs and the Raiders come to town.
Jenkins had eight tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 39-29 win against Jacksonville. Jenkins played 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps and has converted at least eight tackles two games in a row. The hard-hitting safety is quickly starting to emerge as an intriguing fantasy option and should be in for another featured matchup against the run-heavy Broncos.
Jenkins had nine tackles (seven solo) during Monday's 30-27 loss to the Saints in overtime. The 26-year-old finished second on the team in tackles behind Kyzir White, and it's the second time this season he's posted nine tackles. Jenkins' IDP value remains limited since he has eight total tackles over three games besides the two nine-tackle performances.
