Greg Jennings secured 3-of-3 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' Week 16 loss to the Dolphins.
Jennings gave the Vikings a 14-0 lead on a 21-yard throw from Teddy Bridgewater early in the second quarter. He later added a 24-yard gain on a pretty throw by Teddy. Still a useful receiver at age 31 -- albeit better suited for a third wideout role -- Jennings will close out the season against Chicago in Week 17. Dec 21 - 5:04 PM

Date:

Greg Jennings (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Jennings was limited in practice this week with a hamstring issue. He's the No. 2 option behind Charles Johnson, and remains a low-upside WR4.

Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jennings should be available this week despite his hamstring issue. He'll be updated again on Thursday.
Dec 17 - 5:30 PM

Greg Jennings secured 3-of-5 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' Week 15 loss to the Lions.

Jennings' second-quarter TD catch from eight yards out gave the Vikings a 14-0 lead. He continued to run possession routes and operate as a chain mover for Teddy Bridgewater. Jennings is still a useful real-life NFL receiver, but his fantasy value is adversely affected by a rookie quarterback and his lack of big-play ability. Charles Johnson has clearly asserted himself as Minnesota's top wideout.
Dec 14 - 7:31 PM

Greg Jennings was held to five catches for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Jets.

Jennings was targeted seven times, but failed to take advantage of a matchup with the Jets' secondary. He's the No. 2 option behind Charles Johnson, and remains a low-upside WR4. Jennings has a matchup with the Lions in Week 15.
Dec 7 - 5:23 PM

Greg Jennings caught five passes for 45 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings' Week 13 win over the Panthers.

He was targeted a team-high six times on a day Teddy Bridgewater attempted just 21 passes. Jennings scored his 17-yard touchdown in the flat to the left just before halftime, beating the defense to the front pylon. Jennings remains a low-upside WR4. He'll remain that way in Week 14 against the Jets.
Nov 30 - 5:26 PM

ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling considers Greg Jennings a prime candidate to restructure his contract in the offseason.

Adrian Peterson ($15.4 million) and Jennings ($11 million) are scheduled to have Minnesota's two highest cap hits in 2015, and the Vikings could clear $18 million against the cap by releasing them. Jennings might make for a prime post-June 1 cut in order to split his $6 million dead money hit. At 32 (next September), there's no upside left. The Vikings would be better off with Charles Johnson, Cordarrelle Patterson, Jarius Wright, and a couple younger receivers.

Greg Jennings caught four passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Packers.

Jennings played despite being listed as questionable with a rib injury, and saw limited snaps in the first-half. He was able to find the end-zone on a five-yard catch late in the fourth quarter. Jennings continues to be the most reliable receiver for Teddy Bridgewater, but finished behind Charles Johnson in targets. He'll be a low-upside WR4 option in Week 13 against the Panthers.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Greg Jennings (ribs) is expected to play Week 12 against the Packers.

Jennings missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices before returning Friday and earning a questionable tag on the injury report. He's nothing more than a WR4/5.
Nov 23 - 9:08 AM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer expects Greg Jennings (rib, questionable) to play in Week 12 against the Packers.

Jennings missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but returned on Friday. It's a blow to Charles Johnson truthers, who surely would have loved to have twirled Johnson in daily leagues. Jennings should start against his own team.
Nov 21 - 1:44 PM

Greg Jennings (ribs) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Jennings' status is up in the air for Sunday's game against the Packers. Owners need to be making other plans in their WR4/5 spots.
Nov 20 - 2:23 PM

Greg Jennings (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

Jennings' status for Week 12 against the Packers is uncertain after he exited last week's game early. He's barely on the WR4/5 radar in the first place.
Nov 19 - 12:43 PM

Greg Jennings exited Sunday's Week 11 game with a rib injury and was deemed questionable to return.

He had one catch for four yards on two targets before exiting.
Nov 16 - 3:21 PM

Greg Jennings caught six passes for 76 yards in Sunday's Week 9 win over the Redskins.

Jennings continues to operate as the most reliable receiver for game-managing Teddy Bridgewater. The 31-year-old veteran now has at least six targets in five straight games, but hasn't reached 80 yards all year and has two touchdowns. He's a low-upside WR4/5 as the Vikings head into their bye.
