Greg Jennings ruled out, Week 5 fantasy value vanishes

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has been ruled out for Week 5 because of a groin injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Greg Jennings has been ruled out by the Green Bay Packers for Sunday's game because of a groin injury. The injury flared up last weekend against the New Orleans Saints and forced Jennings to leave the game after he had caught a touchdown pass. James Jones should start in place of Jennings on Sunday against the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: This is the news fantasy owners should have been expecting since he left last weekend's game. Jennings has not practiced this week and speculation has been rampant that he would miss this game. The injury boosts the fantasy value of James Jones, who could be a valuable bye-week replacement. Jones has caught three touchdown passes this season and is a decent No. 2 fantasy option now that Jennings is out.
