2013 Experience: 8th Season

Twitter News Team Schedule

Fantasy Football Outlook: For the first-time, Jennings is going to experience what it’s like to not have a Brett Farve or Aaron Rodgers caliber of quarterback throwing him the football. No, instead he will have to deal with Christian Ponder and his arm that can’t stay healthy.

No surprise to see Jennings falling to around the 30th receiver going off the board in recent ADP trends, especially since he’s coming off an injury filled season.

Jennings still has the ability to give us some big games, even in his current situation but we should consider him only a WR3 receiver with this situation. Having Adrian Peterson, Kyle Rudolph and Corderrelle Patterson on the team will help Jennings in the sense that teams will have to respect those players for what they can do to a defense.

Still, Jennings will face the top corner from each team, and will have his ups and downs through the season and in terms of production in your lineup.

August, 2012: Concussion Problems For Jennings

The Packers star receiver suffered a concussion a few weeks ago and has yet to find the practice field again, because of complications. While I’m still optimistic we will see Jennings on the field week one against the 49ers, the longer he is sidelined, the more we need to be cautious on draft day.

While Jennings is a top ten talent at the receiver position for fantasy leagues, I’m tailing him back to the sixteenth receiver off the board.

Depth at the position is the main reason why as we have plenty of options on the board that can produce WR1 numbers and don’t have the concerns Jennings will have through this season.

Perhaps Jennings won’t sustain another injury but if he should, it might knock him out for some time if he continues to feel effects.

May, 2012: Fantasy Projections

Another terrific season from Greg Jennings was cut short at a curtail time for fantasy owners as he missed most of the fantasy playoffs. Jennings will never be a high-volume reception option, but I believe it has more to do with the offense he plays in, rather than his ability to hold up.

When you have the best quarterback in football on your team, life has to be good, and you can count on Jennings as a worthy top five addition at his position.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

After a disappointing 2009 season, Greg Jennings re-established himself as a true top ten receiver in fantasy football with over 1,200 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns. With Aaron Rodgersrunning the show, you can count on Jennings to be a dependable No.1 receiver moving forward as I’m confident the “timing” issues these two had down the field, in 2009 are a thing of the past.Heading into the summer, Jennings ADP value on Mock Draft Central lists him as the 5th best receiver to take in standard scoring leagues and the 6th best in PPR leagues. These rankings place Jennings as a third round pick in ten team leagues and up to a late second round pick in 12 team leagues. If you feel confident in Jennings, go with him, but if you like another receiver in this range, that is probably the one you should take as your asking that pass catcher to be the top scoring on your team, for that position.

2010 Preview

Greg Jennings was supposed to be a top five receiving talent coming into 2009. Instead of performing at a high level, Jennings became just another name in Rodgers band of marry men. With so many targets in Green Bay, Jennings numbers will continue to suffer.

2010 Fantasy Football Outlook

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.
