The Kansas City Chiefs acquired WR A.J. Jenkins from the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, Aug. 19, in exchange for WR Jonathan Baldwin.
Huddle Up: Two big early-round WR disappointments will now get a chance to make their marks on new teams, but fantasy GMs need to keep giving both a wide berth.

San Francisco 49ers WR A.J. Jenkins is competing with several other wide receivers for a spot on the final roster. Jenkins has had an up-and-down training camp and fumbled the only catch he had during the first preseason game.
Huddle Up: It's a rapid fall for last year's first-round pick. The 49ers haven't missed on many draft picks of late while building a Super Bowl contending team but Jenkins appears to be one of the exceptions. Even if he makes the team, Jenkins has no fantasy value even for a 49ers squad thin at receiver.

San Francisco 49ers WR A.J. Jenkins received fewer reps than usual during practice Sunday, Aug. 11, and was not thrown a pass until practice was almost over.
Huddle Up: Sounds like a typical game for the 2nd-year wideout who has been painfully slow in coming around.

San Francisco 49ers WR A.J. Jenkins said he will not worry about the fumble he lost during the team's first preseason game. 'Hopefully, I've made some strides,' Jenkins said. 'It's the first preseason game. We have three more games left. It's a long year. No need to panic and get all discouraged. Just got to keep watching film.'
Huddle Up: Jenkins' fumble came at the end of his only reception of the night -- an 11-yard catch and run -- on 3 targets, and needless to say the Niners are looking for more from the 2nd-year wideout given their needs at WR. Don't invest much fantasy faith in Jenkins until he shows something -- anything -- during live action.

San Francisco 49ers WR A.J. Jenkins has not distinguished himself as the team's No. 2 wide receiver during training camp.
Huddle Up: Jenkins' rookie year was a total wash with no catches and only 3 games played in 2012, and it's quite a leap of fantasy faith to believe he can just step right in and start. Be very wary until you see at least some positive signs of progression.

San Francisco 49ers WRs A.J. Jenkins and Chad Hall worked with WR Anquan Boldin during the two-minute drill at organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, May 28. So far, however, WRs Ricardo Lockette, Marlon Moore and Quinton Patton have also rotated with Hall and Jenkins during drills, and no one receiver appears to be getting the lion's share of reps opposite Boldin, as the jobs behind the veteran are viewed as wide open.
Huddle Up: With Jim Harbaugh running the show, there won't be any playing of favorites, but you have to believe the Niners would like to see Jenkins seize the opportunity and step forward after failing to catch a pass last season as a rookie first-round pick.

San Francisco 49ers WR A.J. Jenkins was on the field for 37 offensive snaps during the regular season and 10 snaps in the postseason. He had one drop and did not have a catch.
Huddle Up: Definitely a lost rookie season for the first-round selection, but the opportunity will certainly be there for Jenkins this summer as the Niners have a big gap to plug at the No. 2 WR slot opposite Michael Crabtree.
