Until Darius Jennings finds meaningful playing time with the Titans this fall, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.
Jennings hauled in three of his five targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts. Jennings hauled in three passes for the second consecutive game, doubling his receiving output from the first 15 contests of the season. However, that didn't translate to much fantasy value, as he turned those six catches into only 46 yards. He's found more of a niche as a kick returner -- a role he retained all season for the Titans -- though that increases his value in a limited number of fantasy formats. Under contract through 2019, Jennings will likely retain that role next season, though the team will seemingly hope to limit his role as a receiver with Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor and Tajae Sharpe the most likely players to man three-receiver sets.
Jennings was not targeted in the passing game but returned one kick for 29 yards in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars. Jennings battled a knee injury throughout the short week prior to Thursday's game, but maintained his role as a kick-return specialist. He's been a non-factor in the passing attack, hauling in only five catches for 55 yards for the season.
Jennings (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Jaguars, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Jennings will see most of his snaps on special teams and serve as the Titans' top kick returner during Thursday's tilt against the Jaguars.
Jennings (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Jaguars. Jennings is working to recover from a knee injury sustained during Sunday's win over the Jets, and his status for Thursday Night Football appears truly murky. If Jennings were to miss any time, Adoree' Jackson would serve as the Titans' top kick returner.
Jennings is listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated practice report, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports. Jennings appears to have picked up a knee injury during Sunday's 26-22 win over the Jets. If the depth wideout were to miss any time, one of Adoree' Jackson (wrist) or Dion Lewis would serve as the Titan's top kick returner.
