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.
