Greg Jennings hauled in a team-high six catches for 77 yards in Minnesota's 17-16 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. The veteran wideout helped set up the Vikings' first touchdown of the game with back-to-back gains of 38 and 15 yards in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings was the focal point of the Vikings' passing attack as he saw nearly twice as many targets (7) as his next closest teammate (three tied with four). As the most polished wide receiver on the roster, Jennings is providing rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with a trusted target in the passing game. At this point Jennings has some value in PPR leagues, but in most cases he's best used as depth as a WR4/WR5.

Greg Jennings said he and his fellow wide receivers need to start playing better after an uninspiring beginning to the season. The Vikings rank 30th in the NFL in passing offense and lead the league in dropped passes. "We have to execute," Jennings said. "We work too hard all through the week to have 13 points to show for it in the last two weeks. We just simply have to execute. When the plays are called, we have to execute. And that's across the board." (Source: Vikings.com)

Fantasy Impact: The Vikings passing attack has been so unproductive this season that Jennings' team-leading 268 receiving yards ranks only 56th in the league and the team doesn't have a passing touchdown since Week 2. Jennings has been trending in the wrong direction recently as well as he only has a combined five catches for 66 yards in the past two games. At this point Jennings should be on your bench until the Vikings can prove they can move the ball through the air again and he is droppable 10-team leagues and larger leagues with small rosters.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings was limited to three catches for 33 yards in a 17-3 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The veteran wideout saw six targets, but converted only half of those into catches and failed to score a touchdown for the fifth straight game.

Fantasy Impact: For the second straight game Jennings was a complete non-factor in the Vikings' passing attack. He has now been limited to five catches and 64 yards in the past two games and has scored only one touchdown all season. Jennings has a low week-to-week ceiling and at this point he is droppable in shallow leagues and only roster-able as WR depth in deep bench leagues.

Veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings was held In check in his return to Lambeau Field on Thursday night as he managed to catch only two of his six targets for 31 yards.

Fantasy Impact: It was a frustrating night for the former All-Pro as he was booed all game and was out of sync with quarterback Christian Ponder throughout. Jennings wasn't even targeted until the third quarter and both of his catches came in garbage time. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners until Teddy Bridgewater returns to the lineup, Jennings belongs on your bench.

During a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Greg Jennings indicated that he has no regrets about leaving the Green Bay Packers as a free agent in 2013. The veteran receiver said the decision wasn't really football related, but mainly because Minnesota offers him and his family more "spiritually" and "educationally". While he expects to receive plenty of boos on Thursday night, Jennings doesn't plan on letting it effect his performance. "I can't concern myself with that," Jennings said. "I was on that side when Brett [Farve] came back, so I understand the reaction he got. So I don't expect it to be anything better than that." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: If Greg Jennings wasn't already going to get booed on Thursday night at Lambeau Field, his comments on Tuesday made it a foregone conclusion. Whether that will have an impact on his production on the field remains to be seen. The nine-year veteran, who spent his first seven seasons with the Packers, caught just two passes for 29 yards in his return to Lambeau Field last year. On Thursday night his production will most likely be determined by whoever gets the nod at QB. If Teddy Bridgewater is able to play, Jennings can be used as a WR3 or a flex starter in most leagues. However, if Christian Ponder is forced into the lineup you will want to make sure to remove Jennings from yours.

Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings turned four targets into three receptions and 72 yards in the Vikings' 41-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The veteran wideout had not one, but two, important 29-yard catches in the Vikings' win. The second one helped kick start their 4th-quarter touchdown drive that put the Vikings ahead for good.

Fantasy Impact: Despite little fanfare, Jennings continues to be the most consistent and dependable fantasy wide receiver for the Vikings this season. The former All-Pro has now scored in double figures in PPR leagues in three of his first four games. Although his weekly ceiling is somewhat limited his high floor makes him a legitimate WR3 or flex play in most leagues. Find a way to get him in your lineup in Week 5 as he will be extra motivated to produce big numbers against his former team, the Green Bay Packers, on Thursday night.

The 9-year veteran had only 7 receptions for 62 yards coming into the game, but Jennings caught a team-high 5 balls for 70 yards. He was targeted 7 times and looked like the safe option when Teddy Bridgewater entered the game.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings has value if the Vikings offense can find an identity, but for now he is a WR3/WR4 in most weeks. Bridgewater and Jennings had solid chemistry, so that is something to keep an eye on.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings and Vikings' quarterback Matt Cassel clicked towards the end of last season, and that chemistry carried over to this year as Jennings led all Vikings' receivers with 7 targets. As long as Cassel continues to look his way, Jennings should have some fantasy appeal as a WR3 in most leagues.

“I don’t have to be the guy," Jennings said. “It’s funny because the more experience you have, the most knowledge you gain — if you’re willing to learn.” (Source: Vikings.com)

Fantasy Impact: Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune says that the 31-year-old Jennings will play a vital role in the offense. If that is true, he still won't have much more value than a desperate flex/WR 4 option each week. Jennings will be better in football terms, than fantasy football terms. Cordarelle Patterson and Kyle Rudolph are first in line for targets over Jennings barring an injury.

According to ESPN reporter Ben Goessling, veteran Greg Jennings was the most impressive wide receiver at Vikings' practice on Tuesday. Jennings caught a deep pass from presumed starter Matt Cassel and made a nice catch in front of cornerback Xavier Rhodes on a throw down the sideline from rookie Teddy Bridgewater. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: During the second half of last season, Jennings developed a strong connection with Cassel that has apparently carried over to this year. The former All-Pro has also connected with Bridgewater this preseason as well, which could prove to be important if the youngster ascends to the starting spot at some point this season. Jennings can currently be drafted as the 53rd wide receiver off the board and could easily exceed that position regardless of who lines up behind center for the Vikings.

Veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings made the play of the day during Vikings' practice on Wednesday when he hauled in a deep throw down the sideline from Matt Cassel. The duo connected on both targets Wednesday and also hooked up for a 13-yard completion in their only drive together during last Friday's preseason opener against the Raiders. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Jennings and Cassel hit it off in their first season together as the former Pro Bowler piled up 41 catches, 491 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns in the seven games that Cassel started in 2013. If you average that out over 16 games it comes to 94 catches, 1,122 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns. While those numbers seem fairly unrealistic, Jennings could certainly out produce his current ADP as the 55th WR off the board if his connection with Cassel continues to develop.

Veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings told the Star Tribune on Thursday that he and his fellow wide receivers are ready to step up this season. Jennings said that Norv Turner's offense will be more balanced than last year's version and should help to take some of the pressure off workhorse Adrian Peterson. (Source: StarTribune)

Fantasy Impact: If Jennings can bounce back from a subpar 2013 season he might end up being one of the biggest values at WR this year. He is currently being drafted as the 55th receiver off the board and the 165th player overall. That is laughable. Apparently drafters are still hung up on last season even though this year's offense should be much more pass happy. And that makes Jennings a strong candidate to finish as a WR3 even though he can currently be taken at the same time as kickers and defenses. That my friends is a bargain.
