Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) is a player the Jacksonville Jaguars have an interest, general manager David Caldwell said Monday, March 23. However, the two sides have not scheduled a visit yet.
Fantasy Tip: Jacksonville would be an interesting landing spot for Jennings, who could re-emerge as a decent WR4 or flex play in standard fantasy leagues. The Jags aren't exactly deep at the receiver spot, although they did sign Julius Thomas to big money at tight end.
Sun, 22 Mar 2015 18:18:32 -0700
Free-agent WR Greg Jennings and the Miami Dolphins will discuss a deal if the two meet for an already planned visit.

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 23:58:37 -0700
Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) has drawn interest from the Carolina Panthers. Jennings visited the team on Saturday, March 21.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings was the victim of a salary squeeze as the Vikings believed they could not pay two receivers a high price. This could be a good landing spot for Jennings, who could be drafted as a WR3 in most fantasy leagues.
Fri, 20 Mar 2015 16:51:28 -0700
Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) likely will not sign with the Green Bay Packers this offseason unless he is willing to accept the No. 4 wide receiver job, in the opinion of Pete Dougherty, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings may have a hard time finding a starting job this offseason but could find a role as a No. 3 receiver with a team. His value will be determined by his new team, but he likely will be a later-round pick in most drafts.
Sat, 14 Mar 2015 11:16:22 -0700
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings has been released Saturday, March 14.
Fantasy Tip: This will ideally give Cordarrelle Patterson and Charles Johnson more value, as well as TE Kyle Rudolph. The addition of Mike Wallace opened the door for Jennings and his large cap hit to be released. Watch how the reps shake out in the offense, particularly if Patterson can get out of the doghouse. Jennings still has something left in the tank as a quasi-possession receiver and figures to be in the WR4 area, depending on where he lands.
Sat, 14 Feb 2015 19:06:51 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings carries an $11 million cap number for 2015, and Chip Scoggins of the Minnesota Star Tribune believes he will be asked to restructure.

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:06:59 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 17.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings does have a nice matchup with the Chicago Bears, but he just doesn't perform consistently enough to warrant consideration in FantasyScore lineups this week with equal pricing at all positions.
Thu, 25 Dec 2014 14:45:19 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 25.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings should have a good chance to play in Week 17 even though he is limited. He will be facing a Chicago Bears defense that has struggled against wide receivers over the past four games. Jennings could be considered as a No. 3 wide receiver or flex option for owners.
Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:21:39 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been on a roll lately, finding the end zone in four of his past five games. Check back Friday when the official injury report comes out with his status. He could be a nice WR2 or flex option in FantasyScore against a leaky Chicago Bears pass defense.
Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:40:15 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 15:19:16 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($5,200) might be best left out of FantasyScore lineups as the Miami Dolphins have been better than average against wide receivers this year.
Wed, 17 Dec 2014 14:03:51 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 15:04:59 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 13.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($5,000, 10%) does have a good matchup facing the Carolina Panthers, but he hasn't played consistently this year and has been playing in the shadow of Charles Johnson in recent weeks.
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 14:47:28 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been a bit inconsistent this season but is coming off a solid Week 12 performance. Jennings has a price of $5,000 on FantasyScore and could be a good option since the Carolina Panthers have struggled against opposing wide receivers.
Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:19:08 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 26.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings scored his third TD of the season last week, giving him some momentum going into the game against the Carolina Panthers. Carolina has given up an average of 25.39 fantasy points per game to receivers this year, which bodes well for Jennings ($5,000) at FantasyScore.
Sun, 23 Nov 2014 16:58:56 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Jennings entered the game as questionable with a rib injury, and it doesn't appear he was affected by the injury. He has three or more receptions in five of his past six games, and eight of his 11 outings this season. He is a decent low-end WR2 or flex option in FantasyScore.
Sun, 23 Nov 2014 08:41:23 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) is active for the team's Week 12 game.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings likely will be in the starting lineup but has not produced great numbers this season. He has a price tag of $4,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using other options.
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:36:39 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (ribs) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if he is able to do anything during practice Friday, Nov. 21. Jennings costs $4,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider spending a little more on a better option.
Wed, 19 Nov 2014 14:12:32 -0800
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.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 12:33:03 -0800
Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) suffered a rib injury in the team's Week 11 game but will be able to return to the game.

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.

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.
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 20:01:40 -0800

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.

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."
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 16:05:18 -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."
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."
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.
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.
