Greg Jennings WR MIN 1 Day
Jennings led the team with six catches on seven targets for 77 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater struggled again, though Jennings was his most consistent option. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, it didn't produce much production, and Jennings has now gone six straight games without a touchdown and his 77 yards Sunday were a season-high. If there's a silver lining, it's that the Vikings travel to Tampa in Week 8 to face a Bucs' defense that is allowing the second-most passing yards per game this season.

Jennings had three receptions for 33 yards and was targeted six times in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Teddy Bridgewater struggled amid major pass protection issues on the Minnesota offensive line. Jenning's production is likely to be erratic as Bridgewater develops.

Jennings caught 2-of-4 targets for 31 yards in Thursday's 42-10 loss to the Packers.
Both of Jennings' receptions came in garbage time, as the Vikings had minimal success on offense until the outcome of the game was no longer in question. Once Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) comes back, which will likely happen next week, Jennings should find things more to his liking. However, the veteran has competition for targets in the forms of Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) and Jarius Wright.

Jennings made three catches on four targets for 72 yards in Sunday's win over Atlanta.
Other than a dud against New England in Week 2, Jennings has been pretty consistent, albeit unspectacular. Meanwhile, Jarius Wright was the surprise star of the game, catching eight passes for 132 yards. Despite Wright's monster performance, expect Jennings to remain a key part of the passing game most weeks.

Jennings had five receptions for 70 yards in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.
He was targeted a team-high seven times, which is a good sign that he'll remain the top target with new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater under center.

Jennings had just one reception for four yards and was targeted just four times in Sunday's loss to New England.
It's odd that Jennings had just one reception since he's shown chemistry with Matt Cassel, but his poor day was likely mostly a product of Cassel's struggles (5.6 YPA and four interceptions).

Jennings had six receptions for 58 yards, including an eight-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win over St. Louis. He led the Vikings with seven targets.
Jennings continued a trend from last season of being productive with Cassel at quarterback. Jennings caught all four of his touchdowns last season from Cassel and was far more efficient than with Minnesota's other quarterbacks (8.7 YPA with Cassel, compared to just 6.9 YPA with Christian Ponder).

Jennings was targeted twice, but did not have a reception, in Saturday's preseason win over Kansas City.
Jennings has had a quiet preseason with three catches in three games, but there's no reason to worry as he's a veteran with a set starting job. He showed last season he can still be productive with better quarterback play and the strong play of Matt Cassel and Teddy Bridgewater in the preseason could indicate a strong rebound season for Jennings.

ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling said Greg Jennings "clicked with Matt Cassel" last season.
Whether is was chemistry with Cassel or simply relief from no longer seeing Christian Ponder in the huddle, something changed for Jennings when Cassel was the starter last season. He posted a 34-413-3 line in the six games Cassel started and was targeted 47 times over that span. The overall stats are misleading, though, as Jennings failed to reach 60 yards receiving in four of the six games. Jennings may have a few solid games this season, but his lack of upside and consistency make him nothing more than a bench filler in fantasy.

Greg Jennings was limited to four catches for 27 yards in the Vikings' Week 16 loss to Cincinnati.
Matt Cassel only completed 13 passes and threw for 114 yards, so Jennings was lucky to get the production he did. He'll finish a disappointing first year as a Viking with a Week 17 date against the Lions.
