Greg Jennings WR MIN 29 Days

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.

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 (Achilles) did not practice Wednesday.

Jennings was able to return from his Achilles' injury in Week 12, but clearly wasn't 100 percent. Even in a plus matchup, he won't be more than a WR4 for Sunday's game against the Bears.

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, questionable) said he "definitely" expects to play this week.

Jennings is going to be active, but shouldn't be expected to be 100 percent against his former team. He's just a low-end WR4 for Week 12.

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 (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.
