Jelani Jenkins Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2021

Most Recent Shark Bites

As expected, Dolhins MLB Kiko Alonso (thumb, hamstring), OLB Jelani Jenkins (knee) and DE Mario Williams (ankle) are out for today’s game against the Cardinals. All 3 entered the day doubtful. According to the Sun-Sentinel, Alonso's hamstring has hampered him more than his repaired thumb fracture this week. Second-year LB Mike Hull is expected to start in Alonso's place, with Spencer Paysinger likely in for Jenkins. (Paysinger was questionable with an ankle injury but is active.) Avoid the Miami LB situation in your IDP lineups. S Isa Abdul-Quddus (neck) is active an ready for normal fantasy usage. CB Xavien Howard (knee) remains out despite advancing to a questionable tag this week.

Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh (knee), LB Jelani Jenkins (knee) and DE Mario Williams (ankle) are all active for today's game against the 49ers. All 3 entered the day questionable. Suh should be the only one in play for IDP leagues. Use him as you normally would.

Dolphins LB Jelani Jenkins (hand) and S Isa Abdul-Quddus (ankle) are active for today's game against the Chargers. Neither is a strong IDP option, and the D doesn't look great against a good San Diego offense.

The Dolphins will not have starting strong-side LB Koa Misi (neck) or weak-side LB Jelani Jenkins (groin) tonight against the Bengals. Both players are inactive. Four other questionable starters will play, though: MLB Kiko Alonso (hamstring), DE Jason Jones (ankle), S Reshad Jones (knee) and CB Xavien Howard (quad) are all active. The Dolphins will also reportedly replace CB Byron Maxwell in the starting lineup with Tony Lippett.

Buffalo
10:52am EST 12/27/15

Dolphins OLB Jelani Jenkins (ankle) is active today against the Colts. He has fallen off the IDP table this season, though, and shouldn't be in many (perhaps any) lineups.

Dolphins LB Jelani Jenkins (ankle) will likely miss Sunday's game in San Diego after aggravating an existing ankle injury. He's officially doubtful.

The Dolphins will have all 3 of their usual starting LBs active after Jelani Jenkins (ankle), Koa Misi (abdomen) and Kelvin Sheppard (hamstring) entered the weekend questionable. Jenkins looks the most iffy for playing time after sitting out last week. All will bring risk to the game, with Sheppard looking most worth the gamble in your IDP lineup because of his recent production.

All 3 Dolphins starting LBs are questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Jelani Jenkins (ankle) looks iffiest after spending Wednesday on the sideline and putting in limited workouts the next 2 days. He missed Week 11. Koa Misi (abdomen) and Kelvin Sheppard (hamstring) each put in limited workouts all 3 days. We'll update all 3 when the Sunday morning inactives come out.

Buffalo
10:53am EST 11/22/15

Dolphins LB Koa Misi (abdomen) is active today against the Cowboys. Miami will miss OLB Jelani Jenkins, however. Kelvin Sheppard remains the top IDP option among Dolphins LBs this week.

Dolphins weak-side LB Jelani Jenkins is doubtful for Sunday's game against Dallas because of the left ankle he injured in last week's win at Philly. LB Koa Misi is questionable with an abdominal injury. He sat out Wednesday and Thursday practices before returning to a limited Friday workout. The situation turns LB Kelvin Sheppard into an upside IDP sleeper and can only help the outlook for Cowboys RB Darren McFadden (who's dealing with his own groin injury).

Dolphins OLB Jelani Jenkins left Sunday's win over the Eagles early after aggravating his left ankle sprain. Jenkins initially suffered the injury in the loss to Buffalo the week before and saw his practice time limited last week. We'll see how it impacts his readiness for this Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys. You should be able to find a better IDP option, however, with Jenkins ranking outside the top 50 LBs in points per game in many formats so far. We've knocked him way down our Rest of the Way IDP rankings after trying to wait for a bounce back.

The Dolphins list LBs Jelani Jenkins (foot) and Koa Misi (hamstring) as doubtful for Sunday's trip to New England. IDP owners should make alternate plans for either player. Jason Trusnik will start and could line up in place of either guy. He's an OK down-the-list option if you're reaching but not an exciting fantasy option.

Dolphins LB Jelani Jenkins is active for the London clash with the Raiders.  He entered the weekend questionable because of an abdominal injury that limited his practice time this week, but Jenkins didn't sit out any workouts.  Go ahead and get him into your IDP lineup after 2 straight studly weeks since entering Miami's starting lineup.

Dolphins LB Jelani Jenkins is questionable for Sunday's game at Oakland after being limited in practice all week by an abdominal issue.  The fact that he took the field each day has us optimistic about his Week 4 status, but you'll need to watch the inactives Sunday if you hope to use Jenkins in your IDP lineup. At least the 1 p.m. ET kickoff gives you other options if Jenkins winds up sitting.

Dolphins LB Dannell Ellerbe suffered a hip injury in Sunday's opener that will keep him out the rest of the season.  Miami placed him on IR on Monday.  MLB starter Koa Misi also aggravated an ankle sprain in Sunday's game and was in a walking boot afterward.  The team doesn't yet know how long he'll be out.  And the other OLB starter, Philip Wheeler, missed Sunday's game with a thumb injury.  Jason Trusnick started in Wheeler's place and moved to the middle when Misi left.  Jelani Jenkins joined him after Ellerbe's injury, with Johnathan Freeny coming in for limited snaps.  The team signed Kelvin Sheppard on Monday.  Don't chase any of them in your IDP league.  We'll keep an eye on Jenkins, though, to see if he can capitalize on the opportunity.
