Week 17 Outlook
Newly acquired cornerback Janoris Jenkins is active for Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans.
There has been no indication on what type of snap count (if any) Jenkins will be on against the Titans, but it makes sense that he will be on the field in man coverage, but may be on the sidelines for the zone concepts he may be more unfamiliar with. Despite his unceremonious exit from the Giants, Jenkins is still a talented corner who lowers the floor for A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.
Former New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been claimed by the New Orleans Saints.
And the rich get richer. This is the type of addition that could put the Saints over the top in the NFC. Jenkins next to Lattimore and Apple will give the Saints what could be the most talented cornerback trio in the NFC. The Saints also placed a failed claim for recently waived pass rusher Terrell Suggs. Jenkins can join the team on Tuesday after the Saints Week 15 is complete.
The Giants have released cornerback Janoris Jenkins following his use of a slur directed at a fan on social media.
Jenkins showed little remorse and the team decided to move on. The Giants and Jenkins have had issues in the past, and given his issues on the field as well as his trouble off it's not surprising to see the rebuilding team part ways with the veteran. There's little fantasy impact since the Giants aren't a defensive unit to consider at this point, unless you are targeting offenses against them.
Janoris Jenkins finished Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions with three solo tackles and an interception.

Janoris Jenkins ended Thursday’s loss to the Patriots with three solo tackles and an interception.
Jenkins is currently fourth on the team in total tackles with 29 through Week 6. He is worth rostering in deeper leagues or in leagues that require starting a DB.
