Greg Jennings WR MIN 5 Days
Greg Jennings has 15 catches for 202 yards with three touchdowns in 2.5 games with Matt Cassel this season.
In 8.5 games with Christian Ponder and Josh Freeman, Jennings has totaled 28 catches for 315 yards and no scores. "There's definitely a trust factor there, and Greg is an excellent route runner," coach Leslie Frazier said. "I would think maybe the veteran experience. Those guys hit it off early on back in the spring, and he really trusts Greg to be where he's supposed to be." If the Vikings want any shot at beating the Ravens on Sunday, they'll roll with Cassel. That would give Jennings a shred up upside as a WR4 candidate in Week 14.
Greg Jennings WR MIN 14 Days
Greg Jennings caught two passes for 29 yards in Week 12 against the Packers.
Jennings was targeted just three times in his return to Green Bay. He clearly wasn't 100 percent after missing last week's game with an Achilles' injury. Jennings dropped his one missed connection on third-and-five with 2:07 remaining in overtime. He wasn't even involved on offense for much of the first half. With shaky quarterback play, Jennings is nothing more than a WR4 at the moment.

Appearing on GameDay Morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Greg Jennings (Achilles') will play Sunday against the Packers.
Jennings was a surprise inactive after being listed as probable last week. He missed practice Wednesday before returning Thursday and Friday. The Vikings list Jennings as questionable for Week 12. Jennings has already said he "definitely" expects to play against his former teammates. He's a WR4 at best.

Greg Jennings (Achilles') is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Jennings is tentatively expected to play, but was inactive with the same injury last week despite being listed as probable. So he's obviously hard to trust. We'd simply write off Jennings as a fantasy option against Green Bay.
Greg Jennings WR MIN 17 Days
Greg Jennings (Achilles) returned to Vikings practice Thursday.
He'll almost certainly be listed as "limited." Most signs point toward Jennings returning against the Packers, but he'll likely be questionable instead of probable on Friday's injury report. Jennings shouldn't be expected to be 100 percent against his former team just seven days after his surprise inactive. He's a low-end WR4 for Week 12.
Greg Jennings WR MIN 21 Days
Greg Jennings (Achilles) expects to play in the Week 12 game at Green Bay.
Jennings said his heel was more sore than he expected when he woke up, so he sat the loss at Seattle out. That allowed Cordarrelle Patterson to rack up a season-high nine targets -- although the explosive rookie only managed a 3/28/0 line. Expect Jennings and Simpson to be the primary receivers in two-wide sets next week.
