Greg Jennings caught 3-of-6 targets for 33 yards against the Lions Week 6.

The Vikings only gained 212 total yards on the day, and Jennings struggled right along with the rest of the offense. Jennings has not surpassed 75 yards receiving in any game this season, and is averaging 45 yards a game. He is nothing more than low-ceiling WR4.
Oct 12 - 5:11 PM

Greg Jennings had two catches for 31 yards in Thursday night's Week 5 loss to the Packers.

Jennings wasn't targeted in the first half and didn't make his first catch until the third quarter. He should see more targets when Teddy Bridgewater returns in Week 6, but remains a low-ceiling WR4. Jennings has 17 catches, 235 yards, and one touchdown through five games.
Oct 3 - 12:26 AM

Greg Jennings caught three passes for 72 yards in the Vikings' Week 4 win over the Falcons.

Jennings was targeted just four times in Teddy Bridgewater's first career start. He was left open in the middle of the field on all three of his grabs against Atlanta's bottom-barrel defense. Jennings is a good fit for Bridgewater's skill set as a solid intermediate option. Through four games, Jennings is on pace for a 60-816-4 line. He's a WR4 no matter who is under center for the Vikings.
Sep 28 - 8:22 PM

Greg Jennings caught 5-of-7 targets for 70 yards in the Vikings' Week 3 loss to the Saints.

Jennings was moving well in the open field, but couldn't bust any big plays for either Matt Cassel or Teddy Bridgewater. Jennings has 12 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown through three games, and should remain a WR4 with Bridgewater taking over for Cassel (broken foot).
Sep 21 - 6:03 PM

Greg Jennings caught only one-of-four targets for four yards against the Patriots Week 2.

Jennings was shadowed by Darrelle Revis most of the game. He almost managed to save his day with a touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter, but he was ruled to have been out of bounds. Jennings will have better days, and is a steady WR4 in fantasy.
Sep 14 - 5:08 PM

Greg Jennings caught six passes for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings' Week 1 win over the Rams.

Jennings was targeted a team-high seven times on Matt Cassel's 25 throws. He doesn't stretch the field like he did in Green Bay, but Jennings can still win in the middle of the field. On his touchdown, Jennings beat Rams rookie CB E.J. Gaines to the back of the end zone for an eight-yard score. Jennings is severely underrated in fantasy and should challenge for the team lead in targets this season. You can do much worse than Jennings as your WR4.
Sep 7 - 5:24 PM

Greg Jennings was held without a catch on three targets in Saturday's preseason game.

Jennings is unlikely to suit up for next week's finale, meaning he'll finish the preseason with three catches for 40 yards. Jennings showed good chemistry with Matt Cassel last season, but it's hard to get ginned up about him as anything more than a WR4.
Aug 24 - 12:19 AM

ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling observed that Greg Jennings "clicked with Matt Cassel" last season.

Whether it was chemistry with Cassel or simply relief from no longer seeing Christian Ponder in the huddle, something changed for Jennings with Cassel under center. He posted a 34-413-3 line on 47 targets in Cassel's six starts. 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 fantasy bench filler.

Greg Jennings caught five balls for 44 yards in the Vikings' Week 17 win over the Lions.

Signed to a $45 million contract in the offseason following the Percy Harvin trade, Jennings ends his first season as a Viking with a 68-804-4 stat line as a receiver. Jennings is still a quality possession threat, but his deep-ball effectiveness has faded sharply the past two years. He'll turn 31 years old near the start of next season. Even if Minnesota finds a quarterback upgrade, Jennings' upside will be limited as a 2014 re-draft league pick. He'll be a low-ceiling WR4.

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.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 05:10:00 PM

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

Unlike Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel actually knows how to get the ball to Jennings. He's proved it at every opportunity this season, and did it again Sunday by hitting him over the top for a 57-yard score early and continuing to attack the Eagles' incapable defensive backs. Over the last three weeks, Jennings is averaging 7.6 catches for 98.0 yards with two touchdowns -- but he'll still be a shaky WR3 in Week 16. The Vikings' passing game figures to struggle on the road at Cincy.

Greg Jennings caught five passes for 53 yards in Minnesota's Week 14 loss to the Ravens.

Jennings continued to display a better connection with Matt Cassel than Christian Ponder, but was still just a chain-moving possession receiver for a station-to-station offense. Regardless of who is under center for Week 14, Jennings will be best utilized as a WR4.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 05:56:00 PM

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 of upside as a WR4 candidate in Week 14.
Tue, Dec 3, 2013 10:17:00 AM

Greg Jennings caught seven balls for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' Week 13 win over the Bears.

The insertion of Matt Cassel kick-started Jennings, who caught an eight-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone on a wide-open out route in the fourth quarter. Cassel delivered the perfectly thrown pass. Jennings has been a low-upside WR3 in fantasy all season. He's not going to be a recommended fantasy option against the Ravens' defense in Week 14.
