Patriots | Michael Jenkins shadowing Tom Brady

Wed, 12 Jun 2013 16:25:54 -0700

New England Patriots WR Michael Jenkins has spent a lot of time this offseason picking the brain of QB Tom Brady or listening in on conversations Brady has had with other receivers.

Fantasy Tip: Creepy? Perhaps. Jenkins has been a middling receiver for most of his career but seems like the type that could have fleeting fantasy value with Brady at the helm. Still, there are plenty of other options for Jenkins to compete with, even if he makes the final roster. It's something to note, though, that he's putting in effort.
