Description: Patriots receiver Michael Jenkins has been running with the first string, but according to a Ben Volin Boston Globe report, he might not make the final 53-man roster,
Insight: Volin believes Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce are four receivers locked in and undrafted rookie Kenbrell Thompkins is the favorite for the fifth spot possibly leaving Jenkins out in the cold.

Description: The Patriots have signed former Falcons and Vikings receiver Michael Jenkins. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBSSports.com.
Insight: We're going to go out on a limb and say this isn't the field stretching weapon New England is looking for. Jenkins had 40 receptions, 449 yards and two touchdowns last season and owns a 12.5 ypc average in his career.

Insight: The injury will not require surgery and the long-term effects aren't as bad as a ACL/MCL tear. Jenkins should be ready for all 2012 activities.
4/11/2011 2:23:00 PM
Description: Falcons WR Michael Jenkins is expected to continue his role as the No. 2 receiver across from WR Roddy White.
Insight: This news isn't all that exciting as Jenkins provides zero upside as a pass catcher. His biggest asset is as a blocker, which doesn't help fantasy owners much.

Description: Jenkins had five receptions for 58 yards against the Rams on Sunday.
Insight: Jenkins has produced solidly since returning to action in October, but he is still only worth considering in the deepest fantasy leagues. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Jenkins had five receptions for 48 yards against the Ravens on Thursday night.
Insight: Jenkins is still not worth a roster spot in most leagues, but he may be someone to keep an eye on. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Falcons WR Michael Jenkins was targeted 10 times in Week 10 vs. Baltimore, catching five balls for 48 yards in the team's win.
Insight: Keep in mind, Matt Ryan isn't going to be throwing the ball 50 times every game, so don't expect Jenkins to get 10 targets again for a while, but we are intrigued by his 3rd down catch along the sidelines that gave the Falcons a crucial first down. In a PPR decimal scoring league, Jenkins would have gotten you 9.8 fantasy points, definitely worth considering as a flex option.

Description: D.Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports, via Twitter, that Jenkins (left shoulder) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Description: Falcons WR Michael Jenkins (shoulder) is out against the Saints.

Insight: That could change next week if Jenkins isn't ready. If Jenkins doesn't start Week One, it could be a committee between Harry Douglas, Brian Finneran and rookie Kerry Meier. Roddy White is the only fantasy receiver we like from this squad this year.
