Description: Kansas City wide receiver A.J. Jenkins suffered a concussion in Thursday night's preseason finale.
Insight: Jenkins has had a very quiet training camp and battling injuries has been one of the biggest reasons why. It's very possible that Jenkins is on the roster bubble this weekend and suffering a concussion does not help his cause.

Insight: Jenkins did catch three balls for 67 yards in the regular season finale (most of the team's starters sat out Week 17), but fantasy owners should not be fooled. The Chiefs went after Emmanuel Sanders in the offseason and are expected to draft a wideout somewhere high in next week's draft. Jenkins, a 2012 first-round draft pick of the 49ers, should not be expected to produce fantasy-worthy numbers in 2014-15.

Description: Former first-round wide receiver A.J. Jenkins has been traded to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Insight: Jenkins had a huge opportunity to grab a big role in the 49ers offense when Michael Crabtree went down with an injury this spring, but by all accounts, failed miserably. Jenkins will be re-united with his old quarterback, Alex Smith, though the two didn't hook up for even a single catch in the wideout's rookie season.

Description: According to reports out of CSN Bay Area, first-round wide receiver A.J. Jenkins may have trouble finding consistent opportunities in his rookie season.
Insight: The addition of Mario Manningham and Randy Moss in the off-season will push the rookie's progress back by at least a year. He's only got value in keeper leagues.
