A left-hander all the way, Fats Jenkins had exceptional quickness and was a very fast man in the field and on the bases, especially from the batter's box to first base. A very smart player, he studied the art of baserunning and was an exceptional base stealer. At the plate he was a slap hitter with only average power but was a good contact hitter. He was a good fielder with a wide range and an average arm.
Jenkins also played basketball as a member of the New York Renaissance ("Rens"). In 1963, Jenkins was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a member of the Rens alongside teammate George Fiall.
