2024 RTSports Outlook

Jennings wasn't on the field quite as much last season with the 49ers staying healthier at receiver. He had 19 receptions for 265 yards, which were career lows for him. Jennings averages 26 receptions per season for his career. He plays a reserve role for the 49ers and should continue to fill that role, getting occasional work in the passing game. Jennings is a very big receiver with good size and strength. He looks more like a tight end than a receiver.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Jennings is going to be a boom or bust play. If he doesn't score a touchdown, he likely won't help fantasy teams because his catches and yards will be limited. Look for around 25 catches for 300 yards and a score or two.

Player Notes
May 29 4:10pm ET

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $15.4 million that includes $10.5 million guaranteed on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jennings was a restricted free agent, but he'll remain with the organization ahead of the 2024 campaign. Jennings, who has been stuck in a crowded offense with Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, and George Kittle, has put up just under 1,000 yards in his first three NFL seasons. However, he's viewed as one of the best blocking wide receivers in the NFL and was likely to be named Super Bowl LVIII MVP had the 49ers won following his two-touchdown game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The former Tennessee Volunteer is unlikely to be a weekly producer in fantasy football, though he'll have a better chance if one of Samuel or Aiyuk are traded. Jennings is likely to lose snaps to first-round rookie Ricky Pearsall if Samuel and Aiyuk stick around in 2024.

The San Francisco 49ers selected Florida wide receiver Ricky Pearsall with the 31st overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft on Thursday night. The 49ers have questions about their top three receivers in Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel and Jauan Jennings, with Aiyuk and Samuel being potential trade options during the draft, so the selection of the 23-year-old Pearsall makes sense for the organization. Pearsall tested very well at the scouting combine with a 42.5-inch vertical jump. He was an intriguing prospect to begin with and now gains some steam going to San Fran, especially if the Niners eventually trade one of Aiyuk or Samuel. Pearsall is old for a rookie, but he can make plays all over the field and has strong hands and great body control. Depending on what happens with Aiyuk/Samuel, Pearsall could have some sleeper value in rookie-only fantasy drafts.

The San Francisco 49ers tendered restricted free-agent wide receiver Jauan Jennings at the second-round level on Monday. Jennings is set to make $4.89 million on the tender for the 2024 season, and the sides can now continue to negotiate a multi-year extension. Any other NFL team that signs Jennings to an offer sheet that the 49ers decide to match must part ways with a second-round draft pick. It means that Jennings is going to stay with the 49ers in 2024, unless he's traded. The 26-year-old pass-catcher had a career-low 19 receptions on 33 targets for 265 yards and only one touchdown in 13 regular-season games (two starts) for San Fran in his third year in the league in 2023. Although he caught a touchdown and threw for a TD in the Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs, Jennings is unlikely to produce much in 2024 for a loaded Niners offense.

If a few things had worked out differently on Sunday in the 25-22 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings would have been in the Super Bowl LVIII MVP conversation. The third-year wideout caught four of five targets for 42 yards, including a gigantic 10-yard touchdown reception to give San Francisco the lead early in the fourth quarter. Earlier, in one of the greatest trick plays in Super Bowl history, Jennings took an overhand lateral from quarterback Brock Purdy and launched a pass, all the way back across the field as he was hit, to a waiting Christian McCaffrey for a 21-yard touchdown scamper. Whatever the reason the 49ers couldn't get it done in this one, Jennings himself certainly can't be blamed after the inspired performance. After spending his career to this point as no more than a role player, Jennings will be a restricted free agent this summer and likely be off the fantasy map to start the 2024 season whether he leaves San Francisco or not.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings didn't see many passes thrown his way in 2023 but played a key role in the team's 24-21 comeback Divisional Round victory over the Green Bay Packers in Santa Clara on Saturday night. Jennings saw his involvement increase early in the game when Deebo Samuel (shoulder) left the game and could not return. The former seventh-round pick and role player caught five of six targets for 61 yards and handled one rushing attempt for minus-one yard. He'll be in play as a cheap DFS option in next Sunday's NFC Championship Game if Samuel can't go, but otherwise, he cannot be relied upon to produce.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (concussion) has been ruled out ahead of the Week 18 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. As expected, Jennings will sit this game out which will make it his third in a row. To be fair, the 49ers don't have much incentive to play any of their starters with their postseason spot locked up. The hope is that Jennings will be ready in time for the postseason, but he hasn't contributed much on offense this season anyway.

San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Ray-Ray McCloud III (rib), Jauan Jennings (concussion) and Danny Gray (shoulder) are all questionable to play in the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Both the 49ers and Rams will be rested a lot of their regulars in this meaningless contest, so all three of McCloud, Jennings and Gray could see substantial offensive snaps on Sunday if they are active. The Niners will have to activate McCloud from Injured Reserve if they want him playing this weekend. The 27-year-old hasn't been active since Week 12. McCloud mostly works on special teams. Jennings has missed the last two games and has served as the No. 3 behind Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk for most of the year. Jennings would have the most appeal as a bargain-bin deep DFS sleeper this weekend if he's active, but fantasy managers would probably be wise to avoid San Fran's offense altogether this week.

For the second straight day this week, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (concussion) was limited in practice on Thursday. Jennings has missed the last two games due to his concussion. He's making progress with his head injury but has yet to be fully cleared from the league's concussion protocol, and the 49ers aren't going to rush any of their injured players back this weekend for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Los Angeles Rams with the No. 1 seed in the NFC already locked up. Even if the 26-year-old gets the green light to play this weekend, he'll be taking passes from quarterback Sam Darnold, who will be making his first start of the year. Although Jennings is going to cost next to nothing in DFS, there's a slim chance he pays off for fantasy managers in Week 18. After all, he has only 19 receptions for 265 yards and one touchdown all year.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Jennings hadn't practiced in any capacity since suffering a concussion in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals. So, his limited practice to start the week is a good sign for his availability in Week 18 against the Los Angeles Rams. However, it remains to be seen how the 49ers plan to attack this weekend. With the team already locked into the top spot in the NFC, several key players like Brock Purdy (rest) and Christian McCaffrey (calf) have already been ruled out. With Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk possibly seeing limited snaps as well, Jennings could see a bigger role if active in Week 18.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (concussion) missed practice this week and has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Washington Commanders. The 26-year-old will miss his third game of the season, including his second in a row. Ronnie Bell and Chris Conley should see increased opportunities in the passing attack, though neither of them warrants any fantasy consideration.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings (concussion) didn't take part in the team's walkthrough practice on Wednesday. Jennings suffered a concussion in the Week 15 win over the Arizona Cardinals and didn't play in Monday night's loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Christmas. The 26-year-old has reportedly been making progress but has yet to clear the league's concussion protocols and could very well be forced to miss his second straight game in Week 17 versus the Washington Commanders. Even if Jennings gets the green light to play this Sunday, he won't be a consideration for starting fantasy lineups, even in a great matchup. He has a total of 19 catches this year on 33 targets for 265 yards and only one touchdown in 13 games played.
