Fenton notched 15 tackles (11 solo), four defended passes, one interception and one forced fumble across 12 regular-season games in 2019.
Fenton also had 10 tackles, one sack and one defended pass in three postseason appearances. While the 2019 sixth-round pick only managed to accrue modest numbers while playing a reserve role in Kansas City's linebacker corps, the fact that he performed well in coverage bodes well for his future with the team. He'll work to further his development this offseason.

Fenton has missed two straight contests due to a lingering hamstring injury, but he now appears back to full health. The rookie sixth-round pick is on track to reprise his usual depth role during Sunday's tilt against the Bears.

Fenton was forced out of Sunday's game against the Raiders with a hamstring injury.
The rookie sixth-rounder has enjoyed an increase in duties while Kendall Fuller was out with a thumb injury, recording at least 20 defensive snaps in four of the last five games. Fuller was back in this game, so Fenton was poised to spend most of his time on special teams. It's unlikely he returns to the contest, and he'll look to recover before Week 14's matchup against the Patriots.
The Chiefs selected Fenton in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 201st overall.
Fenton, a South Carolina product, had five career interceptions for the Gamecocks and can play in the slot or on the boundary. He started 30 games there and tested as an average athlete with a 4.52-second 40-yard dash. He fits a need for the Chiefs, but he'll have to work his way up the depth chart before he sees regular-season snaps on defense.
