Greg Jennings set to return, unsure of role: Fantasy implications

Andy Lyons

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings isn't sure how he'll be used once he returns in Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has been cleared to play in Week 13 but he isn't sure of what role he will have in the offense once he gets back on the field. Jennings said Wednesday (via The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) that he thought he would be gradually worked into the offense but added that he felt great.

Jennings hasn't played since Week 4 and has since had sports hernia surgery. Jennings usually plays in the slot but the Packers had success this season with Randall Cobb in that position. Jennings will likely split playing time with James Jones on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings likely isn't in full game shape so a reduced number of snaps is likely. Cobb has been too effective to lose playing time, so Jones is likely to see less time on the field.

This will be a tough call for fantasy owners who have been holding onto Jennings all season. Treat him as a No. 3 wide receiver/flex play for Week 13.
