Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he did not practice, Jennings should be good to go in Week 12, and will cost $4,300 in FantasyScore this week. You can probably find better options available to you for just a bit more. If he is in your plans, check back later in the week to make sure he is back on the practice field.

Vikings | Jerome Simpson likely not in line to start

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 19:15:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson, who took a pay cut to remain with the team after some off-field issues, is likely not in line to start with leading returning WR Greg Jennings and WR Cordarrelle Patterson in the mix. Still, Simpson is happy to be back, and he had a good relationship with head coach Mike Zimmer when the two were both in the Cincinnati Bengals organization together.

Vikings | Greg Jennings' status unclear

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 13:07:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said he was surprised WR Greg Jennings (heel) was unable to play in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks, and Frazier is unsure if he'll be able to play in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers, his former team. "I have to be careful to predict that now, because I really felt like he'd be able to go in this last ball game and it didn't work out," Frazier said. "So I have to watch him go through practice and see him do some things to be certain." Jennings is hoping to be able to play against the Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is a weak WR3 or flex play if he makes it back this weekend. The uncertain quarterback situation in Minnesota isn't doing him any favors.

Vikings | Jerome Simpson comes in later

Sun, 17 Nov 2013 20:02:17 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson did not start in the Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks, even with WR Greg Jennings (Achilles') inactive. Head coach Leslie Frazier used Simpson as the fourth receiver for much of the day, with WR Joe Webb often seeing time ahead of Simpson in three-receiver sets. Simpson was arrested Nov. 9 for drunken driving. "There's no sense in me talking about that now. The decision was made. Simpson was out there on the second play. Circumstances dictated this is what we had to do," Frazier said Sunday, Nov. 17. Simpson made one catch for one yard.

Sun, 17 Nov 2013 12:11:53 -0800

Vikings | Greg Jennings probable

Fri, 15 Nov 2013 15:17:55 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (Achilles') was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 15, but is probable for Week 11. "He's pretty sore and just backed off the work today," head coach Leslie Frazier said. "(We wanted to) give him another day to get ready for Sunday."

Fantasy Tip: Against a tough Seattle Seahawks secondary and with Jerome Simpson possibly being benched, Jennings makes for a very weak play this weekend. If you have better options, seriously consider benching Jennings.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has a nice matchup against the Dallas Cowboys this week, but the quarterback unrest will continue to limit his value to that of a WR3 or flex play.

Vikings | Teammates excited to play with Matt Cassel

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 10:35:29 -0700

Several Minnesota Vikings wide receivers, including WR Greg Jennings, have commended QB Matt Cassel and look forward to him starting in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jennings described Cassel as "more verbal, kind of commanding in the huddle." "If anything that's the difference," Jennings said. "That comes with him having much more experience. He's been in position where he's had to be a starter for years now. He knows what's going on. He's commanding. So is Christian. But as far as throwing the ball it is what it is. Matt's a very smart guy."

Vikings | Greg Jennings likes structure with new team

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 11:57:28 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings compared his new team to his old team, the Green Bay Packers, and said he's comfortable with his new surroundings and new structure. "It's not a free-for-all. There's structure," Jennings said. "But there's liberty. You can breathe. It's like, 'OK, I can do my thing.' You know what you need to do, you get it done. Whereas (in Green Bay), everything was more cookie-cutter. … It's just different. In a good way. And not knocking what we did there. Because obviously it was successful. But here, no one's walking on egg shells."

Packers | Aaron Rodgers calls team different

Fri, 19 Jul 2013 10:32:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said the team will be different this season without WRs Greg Jennings and Donald Driver, and CB Charles Woodson on the roster. "Not having those two and a good friend of mine, Charles Woodson, who I played with for a long time just like those guys - that's different," Rodgers said. "So, we're a different football team. Lacking a little in the experience part, but making up for it in the talent and the young guys that we brought in."

Vikings | Greg Jennings talks Christian Ponder

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 13:13:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings said QB Christian Ponder has not had enough help around him in previous years, and that will change this year. "He (Ponder) has always been a position where the stress and the pressure was on him, and he really didn't have the help around him to take that load off, outside of 'All Day' (Adrian Peterson). That's it," Jennings said.

Fantasy Tip: While the idea that Ponder did not have a lot of help around him may not be entirely accurate, he should be in better shape this year with the addition of Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson.

Vikings | Greg Jennings praises Cordarrelle Patterson

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 09:37:46 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings echoed wide-ranging statements of how impressive WR Cordarrelle Patterson during offseason workouts. Jennings said that Patterson has "that definitive step," meaning a decisive, aggressive move near the top of a route that helps a receiver create separation. It's not necessarily a recommended football move and is often corrected when a receiver is taught to make all his routes look the same in the NFL. However, it can be effective in the right setting as a pinpoint weapon, as it was for Jennings, he said.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is mentoring Patterson, which isn't a bad sign for the youngster's future. Patterson has top-flight speed and, despite his team's shaky QB situation, should be considered a late-rounds flyer for his big-play potential.

Vikings | Greg Jennings injury update

Fri, 31 May 2013 11:24:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (ankle) said the ankle issue that kept him out of practice Wednesday, May 29, is a non-issue and he will return to practice next week. "It's May," Jennings said on Thursday. "Nothing right now counts as much. It's important. But it really doesn't count as much as September, August. ... It's May, and I'm perfectly fine."

Fantasy Tip: This sounds like a non-issue for Jennings, but still with his injury history, keep an eye on his status throughout the rest of the offseason and into training camp.

Vikings | Greg Jennings building chemistry with QB

Fri, 31 May 2013 06:59:19 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (ankle) said he has been building chemistry with QB Christian Ponder even though he has not been able to participate in organized team activities by talking with Ponder about the things he sees during plays. "With a guy like Christian, he's very smart," Jennings said. "You pick each other's brains, and once you're on the field, that chemistry starts to form itself."

Fantasy Tip: Even though Jennings is not able to participate, it is good for him to be talking with Ponder to make sure they are on the same page in terms of the plays. The two players should be able to build on the chemistry on the field during training camp. Jennings should be seen as a solid No. 3 wide receiver in drafts this season and could be a weekly option at the flex position.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (ankle) did not participate in organized team activities Wednesday, May 29, because of an ankle injury. Head coach Leslie Frazier said the injury is not serious.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings can allow the injury to heal because he does not need to participate in workouts at this point of the offseason. Jennings should be seen as a solid No. 3 wide receiver in drafts this season and could be a weekly option at the flex position.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson will be given opportunity to start

Thu, 16 May 2013 09:45:10 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will be given an opportunity to earn a starting wide receiver spot across from WR Greg Jennings this year, according to head coach Leslie Frazier. WR Joe Webb will be insurance in case Patterson doesn't pan out.

Fantasy Tip: It's tough to predict Patterson's fantasy value heading into his rookie season. Aside from Greg Jennings, Christian Ponder doesn't have much to work with at wideout, and Kyle Rudolph will remain a big target in the passing game. Patterson is a bit of a project and will have to improve his route-running skills dramatically to make an impact immediately. Consider him a late-round flier in deep leagues.

Vikings | Greg Jennings already talking up QB

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 18:08:07 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings was cordial when speaking about his new QB Christian Ponder Friday, March 15. "You could see on film (Ponder) didn't have a lot of options to throw to," Jennings said. He said he didn't mean any disrespect.

Fantasy Tip: It's a nice idea to be instantly sympatico with your new quarterback, but at the same time the remaining wideouts and tight end targets from last season might not be too keen being called out by their newest teammate. Still, Jennings has to really only make nice with one guy, and he did. He should be a serviceable WR2 in 2013.

Vikings | Greg Jennings agrees

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 16:17:39 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings agreed to an undisclosed five-year deal with free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Packers).

Fantasy Tip: Jennings missed half of last year with a groin injury and saw his production drop thanks to a bevy of receiving options around him in Green Bay. He'll be 30 years old shortly after the 2013 season kicks off, but he'll be the unquestioned No. 1 wideout in Minnesota. Declining production due to age and inconsistent quarterback play in Minny make Jennings more of a No. 2 fantasy WR.
