WR - FA
Week 7 Outlook
Veteran WR Greg Jennings announces his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons.
Greg Jennings spent the prime of his career in Green Bay and had three straight seasons with over 1,100 yards. Jennings had a great run and his veteran presence will surely be missed in locker rooms. Congrats on a great career.
During a radio interview with Minnesota's K-FAN 100.3 FM, free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings indicated that he would like to return to the Minnesota Vikings in 2016. In the radio spot, Jennings said that he left a voicemail with Vikings' GM Rick Spielman saying that he's "waiting on you guys."
Greg Jennings is at the twilight of his career and will enter his 11th season in the NFL if he finds a suitor. The 32-year-old receiver is coming off of his worst statistical year as a pro, finishing 2015 with only 19 receptions for 208 yards and a touchdown with the Dolphins. Jennings is not a viable fantasy football option in 2016.
The Dolphins cut receiver Greg Jennings. The move frees up $4 million in cap space which the team sorely needed. Jennings was going to cost the team $5.5 million against the cap this season. He only had 19 receptions and a touchdown in 2015.
Jennings would've possibly been 4th or 5th on the chart depending on what happens with Rishard Matthews. Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills are tabbed to be the main wideouts going into 2016.
Greg Jennings caught all three of his targets in Sunday's win over the Redskins. He finished the game with 29 yards receiving.
Jennings is one of several talented receivers on the Dolphins. Despite the expectations of the Dolphins' offense, his fantasy upside is limited by the young WR talent around him.
Greg Jennings has been working well with Ryan Tannehill as the second WR in the offense. Jennings is getting good reviews from multiple beat writers who have noted his ability to create separation. With Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker injured it may have given Jennings the opportunity to take the reigns on the second WR position.
Jennings could have a place in an offense that looks to spread the ball. He seems to have plenty left in the tank and could end up being a huge bargain in re-drafts at his current ADP of WR80.
