by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (9/14/14)Greg Jennings nearly hauled in a garbage-time touchdown in the Vikings' Week 2 loss to the Patriots but didn't get two feet in-bounds. That would have salvaged his stat line, which was one catch for 4 yards as part of a terrible day all around for Minnesota.
The Vikings are guests of the Saints in Week 3.
Greg Jennings catches touchdown in Week 1 vs. Rams
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com (9/7/14) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings led his team in receiving Sunday, catching six passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in his team's 34-6 blowout win over the Rams.
Jennings managed a great grab in the back of the end zone to put the Vikings up 13-0 late in the first half, and the Vikings cruised in the second half behind an excellent performance by the defense. Jennings didn't score his first touchdown last season until the team's fourth game. He'll face a tougher test in Week 2 when the Patriots come to town.
Vikings to 'showcase' Cordarrelle Patterson
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (6/23/14) 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.
"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 (4/30/14) 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 (4/30/14) 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.
09/15/2014 09:40 Week 2 Fantasy Rewind
The second week of the season sure offered owners some bad news in the form of major injuries. Our Dave Richard shares his initial observations from a busy Sunday of action.
Most folks won't go into a Fantasy draft hoping to get Greg Jennings. They'll instead settle for him when they're looking for reserve-level players. This is because Jennings' production fell off last year as he scored as many touchdowns in 15 games (four) as he had in eight games with Green Bay the year prior. For the second straight season his receiving average was low and even though he had good rapport with Matt Cassel, Jennings flopped for Fantasy purposes. Expect him to get taken with a late-round pick.
