Vikings to 'showcase' Cordarrelle Patterson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) After meeting with new coach Mike Zimmer and new offensive coordinator Norv Turner, Vikings receiver Greg Jennings "quickly got a sense of how prominently [Cordarrelle] Patterson would be featured in the Vikings' offense," reports ESPN.com.

Jennings then let Patterson know he should prepare for a major role.

"I wanted him to know that, coming in, the expectation of you is no longer 'rookie.' It's, 'You gotta go. We saw what you can do. We're gonna showcase this,'" Jennings told the website. "For me, it was making sure that he understands that he has to be a professional. He has to be a pro's pro when he steps foot in this building, because we're expecting (him) to give us what we've seen you put out there."

Patterson finished his rookie year strong, with three receiving and three rushing touchdowns in his last five games.


Greg Jennings on new offense: 'My head is spinning'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Vikings receiver Greg Jennings said new coordinator Norv Turner is installing a much more complex offense than what the team ran last year, reports NFL.com.

"My head is spinning, even though the offense is coming, and it's starting to sink in," said Jennings, who's entering his ninth season. "The different formations that we can run with the same play, different variations that come with the same play, your head is spinning at all times.

"If last year's offense was complicated, guys will struggle with this one, for sure."


Vikes not expected to draft wideout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) The Vikings have "four solid options" at receiver and have bigger draft needs than wideout, reports the Minneapolis StarTribune. The paper expects the team to pass on receivers in the draft, then add one from the deep pool of undrafted free agents.

Greg Jennings, Cordarrelle Patterson, Jerome Simpson and Jarius Wright project as the team's top four wideouts.


Norv Turner: Vikes' offense 'can be good real fast'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) New Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner hopes the team lands a dynamic young quarterback but believes running back Adrian Peterson remains the key to success, reports the Minneapolis StarTribune.

“We want to make big plays, we want to be an explosive offense, and we want to run the ball,” Turner said at his introductory press conference. With an offense that includes Peterson, receiver Greg Jennings and all-purpose threat Cordarrelle Patterson, Turner believes Minnesota can improve quickly.

“I looked at the roster, I looked at the offensive side of the ball," he said. "I think this is a group that can be real good, and I think we can be good real fast.”


Greg Jennings held under 50 yards


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings was held under 50 yards Week 17.

Jennings led the Vikings in receiving, but only had 44 yards. He did manage to catch five of his six targets. Jennings once again took a backseat to rookie Cordarrelle Patterson, who has emerged as a big threat in the second half.


Greg Jennings silenced with rest of passing game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Established as the preferred target of a quarterback who had averaged 296.7 passing yards in his last three games, Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings seemed like a decent bet to perform Week 16 at Cincinnati even if he didn't quite match the 11 catches for 163 yards he had Week 15 against Philadelphia.

But then, that quarterback, Matt Cassel, didn't live up to his end of the bargain, completing 13 of 27 passes for 114 yards. Jennings remained his preferred target, leading the way with four receptions, but he had only 27 yards. His six targets were second-most on the team.

Jennings and the Vikings passing game as a whole will attempt to bounce back in Week 17. They have a decent matchup for it against the Lions.


Will stars align for Greg Jennings again?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) Against an Eagles defense that ranks 31st against the pass, Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings exploded for 11 catches for 163 yards and a touchdown last week. In three games since Matt Cassel replaced Christian Ponder at quarterback, he's averaging 7.7 catches for 98.0 yards, scoring two touchdowns and getting no fewer than nine targets.

So what's stopping him from having another big game Week 16 at Cincinnati? Namely, the Bengals defense, which ranks seventh against the pass, allowing 219.6 yards per game, and has given up the 11th-fewest Fantasy points to wide receivers.

True, the Bengals aren't invincible to the pass. Just a couple weeks ago, they gave up six catches for 107 yards and two touchdowns to the Colts' Da'Rick Rogers, a complete unknown at the time. Jennings is clearly Cassel's favorite target, and the Vikings' passing game has a good thing going.

So no, you wouldn't be crazy to start Jennings in Fantasy. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all rank him in their top 24 at wide receiver for this week. But understand that last week's performance had as much to do with the Eagles' shortcomings as Jennings' abilities.


Greg Jennings has monster game against Eagles


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Vikings WR Greg Jennings had a monster game Week 15 against the Eagles.

Jennings caught 11 passes for 163 yards and a score. He was targeted a team-high 13 times. Jennings flashed the big play ability he showed in Green Bay during the contest, catching passes of 22, 31 and 57 yards. He opened up the scoring for the Vikings with his 57 yard touchdown reception. It was Jennings' best game since joining the Vikings. All four of Jennings' touchdowns this season have come with Matt Cassel at quarterback.

Jennings will look to repeat Week 16 against the Bengals. 


Greg Jennings held to modest numbers Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings was quarterback Matt Cassel's favorite target for a second straight game Week 14 at Baltimore, but the veteran receiver was held to modest numbers during a 29-26 loss. Despite a team-high 10 targets, Jennings finished with five catches for 53 yards.

Sunday did mark the first time, however, Jennings was able to post at least 50 receiving yards in consecutive games this season. The Vikings are back in action Week 15 vs. Philadelphia.


Greg Jennings back on radar after one strong outing?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings had his best performance Week 13 vs. Chicago since totaling a season-high two touchdowns Week 4 vs. Pittsburgh. It's no coincidence Jennings' re-emergence last week came after Matt Cassel replaced Christian Ponder (concussion) since Jennings' two-touchdown game came with Cassel at the helm of the offense.

Well, with Ponder still recovering from a concussion it appears Cassel will be under center Week 14 at Baltimore. That of course could bode very well for Jennings, who has been a disappointing Fantasy option in 2013.

Wide receivers have had moderate success against Baltimore. They are averaging 20.8 Fantasy points and 158.3 receiving yards per week. Wide receivers have totaled 12 touchdowns in 12 games.

The game following Jennings' two-touchdown performance he totaled just six catches for 34 yards. However, he went up against a very good Carolina defense and was still targeted 10 times by Cassel, so Cassel definitely likes throwing his way. That does help Jennings' Fantasy value for Week 14, but it's still a gamble to start him since he's surpassed 10 Fantasy points just twice this season and the Ravens aren't exactly the easiest matchup.


Greg Jennings ends scoring drought Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings scored for the first time since Week 4, ending a seven-game scoring drought during a 23-20 overtime win Week 13 vs. Chicago. Jennings finished with seven catches, 78 yards and nine targets -- all team highs.

Jennings had a quiet first half, totaling one catch for 2 yards on two targets. However, he came alive in the second half after Matt Cassel replaced Christian Ponder, who suffered a concussion late in the second quarter.

One play before his touchdown catch, Jennings was targeted on an 8-yard touchdown pass, but it fell incomplete because of good defensive coverage. Luckily, one play later Jennings had his 8-yard touchdown catch. Matt Cassel rolled right after being flushed from the pocket, he heaved a pass toward the corner of the end zone, and Jennings was able to haul it in and get two feet down before going out of bounds.

Jennings also had a key 17-yard catch in overtime, which helped set up Blair Walsh's game-winning field goal. The Vikings are back in action Week 14 at Baltimore.


Greg Jennings not the Fantasy option he used to be


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings has played NFC North foe Chicago many times in his career. Though, most of those games came when he donned a Packers uniform.

Jennings has faced Chicago just once with Minnesota, and it has been one of his best performances in what has turned into a disappointing first year with the Vikings. Jennings had five catches for 84 yards in a 31-30 loss Week 2. The five catches and 84 yards were the second-highest totals Jennings has had in a game this season.

Wide receivers have had moderate success against the Bears. They have averaged 142.3 receiving yards and 20.4 Fantasy points per week through 11 games. Wide receivers have also totaled 11 touchdowns against Chicago.

The Vikings don't exactly have a great passing offense. The Vikings are averaging 207 passing yards per game (25th). They also have just 11 passing touchdowns, which is tied for the third-fewest amount in the NFL.

Fantasy owners shouldn't be relying on Jennings Week 13. If you can afford to look toward alternative options, then considering doing so.


Return to Lambeau not memorable for Greg Jennings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings returned to Lambeau Field Sunday for the first time since leaving the Packers in the offseason. Though, he didn't have a memorable return to Green Bay.

Jennings had no catches or targets in the first half, and he finished with just two catches for 29 yards in a 26-all tie. Jennings' first catch didn't come until the 9:49 mark of the third quarter. He was targeted three times.

The Vikings are back in action Week 13 vs. Chicago.


Greg Jennings back in lineup Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings was cleared to play Week 12 at Green Bay after being questionable with an Achilles injury. Jennings returned to the lineup Sunday after sitting out last week.

Greg Jennings questionable Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) Vikings WR Greg Jennings is questionable Week 12 against the Packers.

Jennings is dealing with an Achilles injury, which has limited him in practice Thursday and Friday. Despite being listed as probable last week, Jennings was inactive due to the injury.


What's in store for Greg Jennings' return to Green Bay?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) If active Sunday, Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings will return to Green Bay Week 12 for the first time since signing joining NFC North foe Minnesota in the offseason. Though, Jennings first has to get healthy after missing Week 11 with an Achilles injury.

If Jennings makes it onto the field Sunday, he will be facing a Packers defense yielding 171 receiving yards and 24.8 Fantasy points per week to wide receivers, which is the eighth-highest average. Wide receivers have totaled 13 touchdowns in 10 games against the Vikings.

After a stellar career with the Packers, Jennings has had a disappointing first year with Minnesota. He's averaging just 45.6 receiving yards per game and has totaled two touchdowns -- both coming Week 4. He also hasn't surpassed 100 yards.

Jennings will surely be pumped up to face his former team, if he plays. But, is that enough to make him a viable Fantasy start? Probably not, unless you are desperate for wide receiver help Week 12.


Jarius Wright to start over Greg Jennings


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings was a surprise inactive for Sunday's Week 11 contest in Seattle. Jennings was listed as probable earlier in the week due to an Achilles injury.

Jarius Wright will start in the place of Jennings.

Vikings reveal Week 11 inactives


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) The Vikings have listed the following players inactive for Week 11: quarterback Josh Freeman, wide receiver Greg Jennings, defensive back Shaun Prater, running back Matt Asiata, guard Jeff Baca, tight end Kyle Rudolph and defensive tackle Letroy Guion.

Greg Jennings probable Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings is probable Week 11 against the Seahawks.

Jennings has been dealing with an Achilles injury. He was limited in practice Thursday and Friday. He should be good to go by Sunday.


Greg Jennings does little in big Vikings win


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings did little during the Week 10 win against Washington Thursday night. Jennings contributed three catches for 18 yards.

The WR was targeted four times during the game and simply wasn't a big part of the passing offense.

Jennings has now had five consecutive mediocre performances. The Vikings play at Seattle Week 11.

Greg Jennings a low-end Fantasy start


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings will have a good matchup for the Week 10 Thursday night home game against Washington. Unfortunately, he's still not much of a Fantasy option for the contest. 

While the Redskins have allowed the third-most Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers on the season, we're just not sure Christian Ponder can get Jennings the ball with any regularity. 

That has been proven time and time again this season. Jennings had one of his bigger games last week as he caught six passes to tie a season high. He still managed just 56 yards and didn't score. Jennings has two touchdown catches this season but they both came in the same Week 4 game. Fantasy owners can consider Jennings just a low-end flex option for Thursday's contest. 


Greg Jennings leads in receiving


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings led his team in receiving on Sunday during the Week 9 loss at Dallas. He didn't have a very big game, however. 

Jennings caught a team-high six passes for 56 yards and did not score in the game. He had a long catch of 27 yards and was targeted nine times by quarterback Christian Ponder. 

The 30-year-old Jennings caught two touchdown passes Sept. 29 against Pittsburgh, but hasn't scored since. Minnesota next takes the field Week 10 on Thursday at home against Washington. 


Greg Jennings active for Minnesota


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings is active for the Week 9 game at Dallas. Jennings was able to improve all week in practices as his knee issue should not hinder him against the Cowboys. He was practicing in full by the end of the week.

Jennings has 25 catches for 336 yards and two touchdowns this season for the Vikings over seven games played.

Greg Jennings probable for Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings is listed as probable Week 9 against the Cowboys.

Jennings was able to improve all week in practices. After not practicing Wednesday, he was able to practice in full Friday. Jennings is dealing with a knee injury.


Vikings receivers hard to trust


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/1/2013) The Vikings travel to Dallas in Week 9, but none of their receiving options in Greg Jennings, Jerome Simpson or Cordarrelle Patterson are worth starting in the majority of Fantasy leagues.

The Vikings haven't had a receiver score a touchdown or gain more than 45 yards since Week 4 against Pittsburgh in London. In fact, that was the only game this season where Minnesota had a receiver score a touchdown when Jenning scored twice.

This is actually a favorable matchup for the Vikings since Dallas has allowed seven receivers to reach double digits in Fantasy points and eight touchdowns. But based on what we've seen of this passing game, it's hard to trust anyone in Minnesota right now aside from Adrian Peterson.

Rank the Minnesota receivers in this order: Jennings, Simpson, Patterson since Jennings has gotten more targets than Simpson the past three games at 23-19. But none of these receivers should be considered starting options outside of deep three-receiver formats.
