Greg Jennings ruled out for 3rd straight game, zero fantasy value for Week 7

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings (groin) has been ruled out again. We break down the fantasy implications.

Greg Jennings has been ruled out of a third straight game by the Green Bay Packers because of a groin injury. Jennings has not played since re-aggravating the injury in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints and is not expected to return until he's fully recovered.

Coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday that Jennings was closer to returning that he was last week and added that he hoped Jennings would return for Week 8. The Packers face the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

Fantasy Football: This has been expected, as Jennings has not practiced all week. It's encouraging to hear that he's closer to returning but at this point fantasy owners will believe it when they see it.

Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Randall Cobb will again be the primary targets for the Packers at receiver. Green Bay threw six touchdown passes last week and may have to put the ball up again in Week 7 against the Rams. Nelson and Jones should be in most lineups this week, while Cobb is more of a flex play.
