Janoris Jenkins Fantasy Football News 2020

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Jets, according to multiple reports. The team gets a Week 11 bye, so we'll see about Jenkins' status heading into Week 12.

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) is active for today's game against the Eagles. He's not much of an IDP option. His presence dings the fantasy outlook for Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery, but we factored that into our Week 3 rankings. That he was questionable after missing the Week 2 contest also indicates there's some re-injury risk to Jenkins this week.

The Giants have ruled MLB B.J. Goodson out for Sunday's game against the Eagles with the shin injury that also cost him Week 2. We'll see how playing time goes in his absence. Rookie Calvin Munson started and played every defensive snap last Monday night. But veteran LB Keenan Robinson returned to practice this week after starting the year sidelined by concussion issues. Elsewhere on the Giants defense, top CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) is questionable. That's bigger news for Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery than for IDP owners. Missing Jenkins would significantly improve Jeffery's fantasy outlook.

The Giants have ruled MLB B.J. Goodson (shin) and CB Janoris Jenkins (hand, ankle) out for Monday night's game against the Lions. Rookie Calvin Munson will start in Goodson's spot. Jenkins' absence is good news for any fantasy owner that has a Lions WR in a lineup. It's a slight ding to the upside of the Giants' team D but not worth pivoting to the Lions' D, in case you're considering that.

The Giants on Sunday added CB Janoris Jenkins to the injury report with hand and ankle issues. He's now questionable for Monday night's game against the Lions. Jenkins participated in Thursday and Friday practices but was projected as a limited participant for Saturday's walkthrough. He's not much of an IDP option, but his absence would help the outlook for Lions WRs.

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (back) is active for today's game against Washington. He returns after missing last week's loss to Philly, but we'd be surprised if he plays the whole way in a game the Giants don't need.

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (back) will be inactive for tonight's game against the Eagles. He's not a big loss for IDP owners. He does take some big-play upside away from the team D but doesn't kill the unit's fantasy outlook against a bad Philly offense.

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (back) and LB Jonathan Casillas (knee) are questionable for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. Jenkins told the Star-Ledger Wednesday that he doesn't know if he'll be able to play, though he's hopeful. Both players have been limited practice participants the past couple of days. Neither should be in your fantasy plans even if available -- unless you play in a pretty deep IDP league. Jenkins' presence would help the team defense's turnover upside.

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins left Sunday's win over the Lions early after taking a knee to the back. "I'm good. I'm fine," he told ESPN's Josina Anderson after the game, but Jenkins will have further testing to see if he'll miss further time. The Giants face a quick turnaround before Thursday night's trip to Philly.

Adam Schefter reports that the Giants have reached a deal with former Rams CB Janoris Jenkins. ESPN's Dan Graziano adds that Jenkins is expected to get more than $12 million per year. That's a hefty price for a cover man who has been inconsistent at best so far. Jenkins does have talent, though, and could boost a soft Giants secondary if motivated. He presents big-play upside as an IDP but doesn't make for a special fantasy option in most formats.

The Rams on Tuesday placed the franchise tag on CB Trumaine Johnson. Despite the fact that Johnson snagged 7 INTs last year to give him 15 through his 4 seasons to date, it's a surprising move. CB Janoris Jenkins is also headed for unrestricted free agency, as is safety-turned-LB Mark Barron. GM Les Snead said he hopes to retain all 3 plus S Rodney McLeod, according to The Associated Press.

The Rams expect CB Janoris Jenkins (concussion) to play tonight against the Bucs. He passed through the league protocol Tuesday night and is officially probable. Go ahead and use him in your IDP league if he's active. For Tampa Bay, DE Jacquies Smith (hamstring) is questionable after missing the past 2 games. He remained limited in practice all week and looks like a shaky fantasy prospect. Smith's a boom/bust option even when healthy. Try not to use him. Bucs MLB Bruce Carter is doubtful with the ankle sprain that knocked him out of last week's game. Danny Lansanah's an OK fill-in if you need him, but the Rams have presented a poor scoring matchup for LBs all season.

Rams CB Janoris Jenkins is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions as he remains in the league concussion protocol. Jenkins twice returned to last week's loss to the Cardinals after leaving for concussion tests. St. Louis should, at least, get CB Trumaine Johnson back from a thigh injury that cost him the past 2 games. “I’m feeling good, feeling great,’’ he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Friday. “I’ve been practicing all week and the leg’s been coming along. My confidence is up; it’s not going to be 100 (percent), but it should be good enough to play on Sunday.’’ Johnson's not a strong IDP option for this week.

Rams CB Janoris Jenkins left in the 3rd quarter against the Cardinals for more concussion testing after taking a shot to the back from teammate LB Mark Barron on Cardinals RB David Johnson's TD catch. Jenkins previously left in the 1st quarter after S T.J. McDonald accidentally hit him but passed the concussion testing and returned.

Rams CB Janorris Jenkins left early in the 1st quarter against the Cardinals after taking a shot from S T.J. McDonald. FOX reports that he went to the locker room for a concussion evaluation. We'll keep an eye on his status.

Update: Jenkins returned for the Rams' next defensive series.
