Titans' Darius Jennings: Picks up six yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings caught his only target for a six-yard gain during Sunday's 24-10 win over Atlanta.

Jennings returned to the stat sheet Sunday after a silent Week 3, but didn't make too much more than a peep. The former Cavalier has just 17 yards thus far this season and seems to be a long distance behind the likes of A.J. Brown and Adam Humphries. Barring injury, he should not be on your radar.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Gains 11 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings caught his lone target, an 11-yard gain during Sunday's 19-17 loss to Indianapolis. He added a 26-yard kick return.

Jennings was out of the loop in Week 1 but recorded his first catch of the season in Week 2. The former Cavalier ended 2018 with back-to-back three-catch games, but it's a crowded receiving corps with additions including Adam Humphries and rookie A.J. Brown -- particularly in an offense predicated on running the ball. Jennings will have few opportunities.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Serving as kick returner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings saw action as a kick returner during spring workouts, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Jennings is also being mentioned as the favorite for the No. 6 slot on a receiver depth chart headlined by Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown. However, Tennessee isn't guaranteed to even carry than many wideouts, making Jennings far from a lock to make the team out of training camp. Other depth receivers such as Cameron Batson have reportedly had impressive offseasons and still have plenty of time to bump Jennings from his perch.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Hauls in another three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Season-best three catches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings caught all three of his targets for 29 yards in Saturday's 25-16 win over Washington. He also added one carry for two yards.

Jennings' three targets and receptions both represented season bests and his highest total in a game since 2015. Still best known for his prowess as a kick returner, he maintains no fantasy value as he has tallied only eight receptions for 84 yards through 16 games.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Continues role as special teamer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Suiting up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Titans' Darius Jennings: No practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official team site reports.

Jennings appears to have suffered a knee injury during Sunday's victory over the Jets. While he doesn't provide much to the team on offense, he has served as the Titans' primary kick returner. He'll likely need to get a full practice in Wednesday to have a strong chance of participating in the Titans' Week 14 matchup against the Jaguars on Thursday.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Hauls in 36-yard reception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings caught his lone target for 36 yards in Monday's 28-14 win over the Cowboys.

Jennings caught a deep pass, splitting three Cowboys defenders down the middle of the field to record the longest reception of his career. Known mostly for his prowess in the return game, Jennings has just five targets on the season, making him irrelevant in traditional leagues that don't count return yardage.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Returns kickoff for touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings returned a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown in Week 1 against Miami.

Jennings tallied the first touchdown of his career by running back a kickoff in the fourth quarter to pull the Titans back within a score. He made the roster due to his ability on special teams, and briefly held down punt and kick return duties for the Browns in 2015. Outside of the return game, he wasn't targeted Sunday and doesn't figure to play much of a role as a receiver this season.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Earns roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings earned a spot on the Titans' 53-man roster, Erik Bacharach of the Nashville Tennessean reports.

Jennings will be buried on the depth chart at wide receiver behind Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews, Taywan Taylor, Tajae Sharpe and Cameron Batson, but the Virginia product figures to see snaps on special teams as well. He caught 14 passes for 117 yards on 21 targets in four games with the Browns as a rookie in 2015, but he hasn't played in the regular season since.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Making case for a job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings has put together a run of strong practices at training camp, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Jennings hasn't played in a regular-season game since 2015, bouncing around the league on various rosters and practice squads the past three years. The 26-year-old journeyman may finally have his golden shot to stick on a 53-man roster, as the Titans had shaky depth at wide receiver even before Rishard Matthews' undisclosed injury became a major concern. Jennings likely will land near the bottom of the depth chart if he makes the team, but it isn't out of the question for him to make a push for the No. 3 or No. 4 spot if the Tennessee receiving corps continues to struggle with injuries.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Signs future pact with Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings signed a reserve/future contract with the Titans on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Jennings hasn't suited up for an NFL game since the 2015 season, when he played four games and snagged 14 receptions for 117 yards while also working as a kick returner. It's likely that Jennings' best opportunity to make the 53-man roster in 2018 will once again be through special teams.

Darius Jennings: Added to Titans' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings signed with the Titans' practice squad Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Jennings was recently let go by the Titans in order to make room on the active roster for wideout Harry Douglas, but the team has elected to keep him within the organization. Jennings will likely have a shot at a promotion should another injury hit Tennessee's wide receiving unit.

Darius Jennings: Waived by Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans waived Jennings on Saturday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

Jennings was let go in order to create room on the roster for returning veteran receiver Harry Douglas. The 25-year-old pass catcher failed to participate in any game this season for the Titans, so it is no surprise he was the odd man out. He'll either land on the team's practice squad or look for a new opportunity, assuming he clears waivers.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Activated to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

The well-traveled Jennings has only appeared in four career games despite having spent time in Cleveland, Chicago and with the Jets. He's projects to serve as a last-ditch offensive effort at receiver Sunday, so it's wise to keep him off your radars for now.

Titans' Darius Jennings: Signs on with Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings signed with the Titans on Friday.

Jennings most recently played four games with the Browns in 2015, as he didn't see the field with the Jets all of last season before being waived in April. He'll now have an opportunity to make the Titans' roster, although he's a long shot who will likely be used simply as an extra body during training camp.

April 27, 2017 11:48 AM
Darius Jennings: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings was waived by the Jets on Wednesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Jennings didn't see the field at all in 2016 after playing four games for the Browns in 2015. His release won't have much of an impact on the Jets' depth chart at receiver, as Jennings was a long shot to make the team's roster in the first place. He'll try to latch on with another team, but doesn't figure to be much more than a training-camp body.
