10/26/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings scored his second touchdown of the season, during Sunday's win.
Insight: He will never produce the way he did in Green Bay, as Jennings had only three catches for 38 yards. He is a WR4 at best.
10/19/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings led the team with six catches, seven targets and 77 yards on Sunday.
Insight: The Minnesota offense continues to frustrate fantasy owners. At least Norv Turner has figured out Jerick McKinnon is better than Mass Asiata, but he is still featuring Jennings more than Cordarrelle Patterson. That is fine with Jennings' owners, but for owners thinking about picking up Jennings, it is hard to start him with any confidence.
10/13/2014 5:16:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings had only 33 yards on Sunday.
Insight: Jennings produced only three catches as well, and is more than a WR4 moving forward.
9/21/2014 5:54:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings manages 70 receiving yards in Minnesota's Week 3 loss to the Saints.
Insight: He had five catches on seven targets, and will be no more than a WR4 moving forward.
9/16/2014 4:20:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings managed only one catch for 4 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to New England.
Insight: Jennings caught six for 58 yards and a score in Week 1, but could not duplicate his performance on Sunday. He is a WR4 moving forward.
9/12/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings was targeted a team-high seven times in Week 1 and could be in line for a repeat against the Patriots in Week 2.
Insight: Jennings caught six for 58 yards and a score. With Darrelle Revis set to play against Cordarrelle Patterson, Jennings should be a viable fantasy option.
12/15/2013 6:10:00 PM
Description: WR Greg Jennings had his first 100-yard game as a Viking Sunday against the Eagles.
Insight: Jennings hauled in 11 balls for 163 yards and a touchdown for his best game of the season. As long as Matt Cassel continues to start, Jennings is a WR3 option in 12-team leagues.
12/1/2013 5:28:00 PM
Description: Minnesota receiver Greg Jennings caught seven passes for 78 yards and a touchdown on nine targets Sunday against the Bears.
Insight: Jennings has pulled in three touchdowns this season and all of them were thrown by Matt Cassel. He's a WR4 at best.

Description: Minnesota receiver Greg Jennings will be active for Sunday's game against the Packers. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: Jennings missed last week's contest because of an Achilles injury. He should have plenty of incentive to perform at a high level Sunday against his former team. As usual, he'll be a flex consideration.
11/23/2013 2:28:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings (Achilles) told reporters Thursday that he definitely expects to play Sunday against his former team the Green Bay Packers, according to
Insight: Jennings was expected to play in Week 11 at Seattle but experienced a setback and was a surprise inactive. The receiver has only had one game with double-digit fantasy points this entire season.
11/21/2013 3:25:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings was back on the field Thursday, though in limited form and is questionable for Sunday versus his ofermer team the Packers.
Insight: Jennings has only produced one good game this season, against Pittsburgh in Week 4. The odds aren't good for him to do anything this weekend. He managed just one catch for nine yards in their first meeting.
11/20/2013 4:42:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings still isn't practicing. SOURCE: Mark Craig, Minneapolis Star Tribune
Insight: He missed last week's game with a sore Achilles. His status for Sunday's game in Green Bay remains a mystery.
11/17/2013 3:07:00 PM
Description: Minnesota receiver Greg Jennings (Achilles) was listed as probable for Sunday's game against Seattle but he's inactive.
Insight: Rookie first-rounder Cordarrelle Patterson, who had his first career receiving touchdown in Week 10, should see his biggest role of the season. However, fantasy owners shouldn't start anyone from this Vikings offense besides Adrian Peterson and tight end John Carlson.
9/29/2013 5:32:00 PM
Description: In Matt Cassel's first start of the season, Greg Jennings tallied 92 receiving yards and two touchdowns on three catches.
Insight: Jennings only had four targets, but he made them count. With Christian Ponder at QB the first three games, Jennings had 11 catches for 160 yards and no touchdowns.
5/31/2013 1:44:00 PM
Description: Vikings newly-acquired receiver Greg Jennings missed Wednesday's practice at the OTA due to an ankle problem.
Insight: Jennings needs to be healthy and on the field to develop chemistry with his new quarterback (Christian Ponder). Given that Jennings has had a problem with injuries the last few years fantasy owners are going to have to be conservative with their estimates of Jennings' fantasy value.
3/15/2013 8:42:00 PM
Description: After trading Percy Harvin last week, the Vikings have snagged receiver Greg Jennings from the rival Packers with a five-year, $47.5 million contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: Jennings was nagged by a groin injury for most of last season and only played eight games while catching 36 passes for 366 yards and four touchdowns. That came after he played only 13 games in 2011-12. Even if he stays healthy, having Christian Ponder instead of Aaron Rodgers as his QB will make it difficult for him to post his first 1,000-yard season since 2010-11 unless Ponder takes a major step forward. The signing probably does more to keep defenses from loading the box in front of Adrian Peterson than anything else.
2/24/2013 5:51:00 PM
Description: The Packers haven't ruled out the possibility of placing the franchise tag on free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: Jennings (36 catches, 366 yards, four TD in 2012) would earn $10.4 million next season if the Packers decide to tag him. The 29-year-old has plenty of talent but so do Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jordy Nelson. Jennings would probably be more successful on a team where he's the No. 1 or 2 wide receiver instead of the third or fourth option like he is right now in Green Bay.
1/29/2013 11:35:00 AM
Description: Packers free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings has apparently put his Green Bay home up for sale, according to a FOX Sports Wisconsin report.
Insight: The Packers are deep at wideout so the thought is they won't be offering the free agent a monster deal. There are very few teams that Jennings can go to where he won't see a drastic reduction in the quality of the quarterback play. Expect his fantasy numbers to drop unless he signs with another quarterback equal to Aaron Rodgers.
1/9/2013 8:39:00 PM
Description: The Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins will make a push for Packers receiver Greg Jennings when he becomes a free agent later this offseason.
Insight: The Packers are already plenty deep at wide receiver so it wouldn't be surprising to see Jennings sign with another team. He'd definitely be an upgrade for the Dolphins. Miami's only productive receiver this year was Brian Hartline (1,083 yards) and he was still pretty hit or miss.
12/30/2012 7:50:00 PM
Description: Packers wideout Greg Jennings had 120 yards and two touchdowns on eight catches Sunday against the Vikings, his first 100-yard game of the season.
Insight: Jennings missed eight games this season but caught three touchdowns over the final two games. He'll be a free agent and could be looking for a new team.
