Role continues to grow

Jennings had two receptions on three targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-36 win over Minnesota.

Jennings continued to see a gradual increase in usage while serving as the 49ers' No. 3 wideout, experiencing new highs in targets and receiving yardage. The 23-year-old even appeared to catch a second touchdown, but it was reviewed and overturned when the wideout's knee barely grazed the white sideline paint in the end zone. Jennings may continue to see his usage increase with Deebo Samuel's (groin) status unclear for next week's matchup against the Seahawks. It is worth mentioning that fellow wideout Trent Sherfield appeared to be running Samuel's backfield motions and distractions in the fourth quarter, but both receivers are likely to see a small uptick in action if the star wideout misses any time.
