Greg Jennings WR MIN 2 Days
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.
Greg Jennings WR MIN 16 Days
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.

Greg Jennings went off for 11 catches, 163 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Eagles.

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.
