San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings was not targeted in the team's 31-17 home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. In Week 7 with Deebo Samuel (shoulder) out, Jennings had a career-high nine targets, leading some intrepid deep-league fantasy managers to make waiver claims hoping that Jennings was becoming a thing. It shouldn't be a surprise though, that Jennings was uninvolved in the passing game as he's never been fantasy-relevant throughout his nearly 40-game NFL career. Samuel is likely to return in Week 10 following the 49ers' bye but even if he doesn't, Jennings will not be a good option.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings may be worth a gamble in 12-team leagues this Sunday when the team faces the Cincinnati Bengals at home. In Week 7 at Minnesota, Jennings paced the 49ers with a career-high nine targets which he turned into five catches for 54 yards receiving. With starting wide receiver Deebo Samuel out with a shoulder fracture, Jennings led San Francisco in targets. Samuel will be out again in Week 8, providing an opportunity for Jennings to continue his increased involvement. On most other teams, these circumstances would elevate Jennings to WR2/3 status, but San Francisco's loaded offense throws a wet blanket on Jennings' outlook. In his three-year career with the 49ers, Jennings has cracked 10 fantasy points just twice and hadn't eclipsed seven targets in 38 career games before last Monday night. He's a shaky flex play and depending on league size, there are probably better options.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings was targeted a career- and team-high nine times in Monday night's 22-17 loss to the Vikings in Minnesota. Jennings, 26, has spent his three-year NFL career no higher than WR3 on the 49ers' depth chart and has broken 10 fantasy points just twice. He hauled in five passes for 54 yards this week filling in for Deebo Samuel (shoulder). Samuel is expected to remain out for at least another game so Jennings will draw another start in Week 8 against Cincinnati in Santa Clara. Based on tonight's involvement, Jennings will pique a bit of waiver interest in deep leagues but shouldn't be prioritized unless throwing a dart on a one-week flex play, given his substantial history as a bit player, lack of pedigree, and the probable return of Samuel in Week 10 after the bye.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings could see some involvement in the team's passing game when they go to Minnesota to take on the Vikings on Monday night. With starting wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) ruled out this week, Jennings could see more work than usual but expectations should be tempered. Last week with Samuel out for most of the game, Jennings had just four targets for two catches totaling 26 yards. In his 37-game NFL career, Jennings has gone over 10 fantasy points just twice. With Brandon Aiyuk out in Week 4, Jennings still only saw three targets. Up to this point, it seems that 49ers playcallers and quarterbacks have preferred to lean on options other than Jennings even when they're down a receiver. Jennings is a mere WR4/5 in this one.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings garnered some increased snaps after Deebo Samuel left the game Sunday with a shoulder injury. In the 19-17 road loss to the Cleveland Browns, Jennings caught two of his four targets for 26 yards. While four targets are nothing to write home about, it does represent the second-highest total 49ers total in the game, and Jennings' largest total of 2023. Jennings would probably need both Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk to be absent for any fantasy viability, as evidenced by the modest production on Sunday and in Week 3, which Aiyuk missed but Jennings was still only targeted three times. Jennings will be off the fantasy radar in Week 7 at Minnesota, even if Samuel can't play.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (shin) practiced in full on Friday and will play against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. Jennings, who missed Week 4 against Arizona, caught two of three targets for 31 yards in Week 3 versus the Giants. The 49ers have not shown themselves to be the type of offense that can provide fantasy production from three receivers. With receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk healthy this week, Jennings is not worth starting.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (shin) remained a limited participant during Thursday's practice. It's good to see Jennings back on the practice field after he missed practice all week before sitting out in Week 4. Fellow wide receiver Deebo Samuel (knee, ribs) was also limited on Thursday as well. The absence of these two would mean an increased role for Brandon Aiyuk. Fantasy managers will need to pay attention to Friday's practice as it will go a long way to determining their availability for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) and wide receiver Jauan Jennings (shin) are officially inactive for Week 4 versus the Arizona Cardinals. Mitchell was listed as questionable after missing practice on Friday. Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price could earn some snaps in Mitchell's absence, though there's no denying that this backfield belongs to alpha playmaker Christian McCaffrey. Meanwhile, Jennings had been listed as doubtful after failing to practice this past week. In his absence, Ronnie Bell should operate as the No. 3 receiver behind Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (shin) is not expected to play in Week 4 versus the Arizona Cardinals, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. He had been listed as doubtful after failing to practice this past week. In his absence, Ronnie Bell is expected to operate as the No. 3 receiver behind Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals. The third-year wideout suffered a shoulder injury in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants and wasn't able to log a practice this week as a result. Jennings looks to be on the wrong side of doubtful due to the limited practice reps. Deebo Samuel (ribs, ankle) is also questionable for Sunday, which means Brandon Aiyuk and rookie Ronnie Bell could be operating as the 49ers' top two options at wide receiver. The arrow is pointing up on Aiyuk but Bell is hard to trust from a fantasy perspective.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings missed practice on Wednesday with a shin injury. All three of the 49ers' top receivers are dealing with injury as Deebo Samuel (ribs) did not practice and Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) was limited. Jennings failed to capitalize on Aiyuk's absence in Week 3 as he finished with just two catches for 31 yards and played on just 37.3% of the offensive snaps. Jennings will not be a fantasy option in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals, regardless of whether Samuel and/or Aiyuk are able to give it a go.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings could get more involved in the team's passing game if fellow receiver Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) can't go Thursday night against the New York Giants. Through two games, Jennings has two receptions on four targets for 51 yards. In his three-year NFL career, he's only gone over 10 half-PPR points twice. Even if Aiyuk were to sit, it's no guarantee that the vacated targets would go the former seventh-rounder's way given the multitude of talented options quarterback Brock Purdy has at his disposal. It's even possible rookie Ronnie Bell could reap the benefits of Aiyuk's absence rather than Jennings. Even if Aiyuk is out, Jennings should be considered a very risky option this week.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings comes into Week 1 at the Pittsburgh Steelers as the team's third option at wide receiver. While many NFL offenses have fantasy-viable players at WR3, San Francisco hasn't proven to be one of them. Target hogs Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, and Brandon Aiyuk combined with the 49ers' focus on the running game have precluded Jennings from becoming a realistic fantasy option. While Jennings may have some DFS or deep-league desperation appeal if George Kittle (groin) can't go, for all other purposes Jennings is off the fantasy radar.
