WR Greg Jennings NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Greg Jennings was a clear top ten fantasy receiver coming into the 2009 football season. Two years in a row Jennings posted at least nine touchdowns and did so with two different quarterbacks.
Unfortunately Aaron Rodgers couldn’t seem to find Jennings on the long ball all year as their timing was off. This killed Jennings touchdown total as he thrives off the big play and isn’t a large target inside the red zone. Because Rodgers also had so many other quality weapons, Jennings touchdowns fell to a miserable four on the season.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: One trend I’m noticing from different fantasy football writers and sites is that they seem to have Jennings as a lock to return to a high touchdown total. If Rodgers has better timing with Jennings on the deep ball than I could see a return to at least seven scores this season.
Still, we have to drop Jennings in our fantasy player rankings because of all the good pass catchers that are in this offense. Rodgers has a great ability to read defensive coverage, and he has the time in the pocket to get to his third or fourth read in his progression on a passing play.
Jennings will be heavily guarded once again as teams look to make him the top priority to stop every week. Because of this I’m still concerned that Jennings may have a continued slump in production this up coming year.
This receiver is very talented, but I highly recommend you not select him as your first receiver at your fantasy football draft this summer.
June 24th, Update: With Donald Driver recovering from two knee surgeries it is likely that Jordy Nelson and James Jones will see more work. Since Driver may be slowed down this year we have now put Jennings back in the top ten fantasy receivers. We need to see the youngsters take the next step and Jennings is a clear proven talent.
- Big Plays
