Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings caught four passes for 41 yards in the Week 7 loss to the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Jennings was targeted 10 times by new Vikings starter Josh Freeman, who had a performance to forget. The Vikings offense was terrible but the play calling left much to be desired. Freeman had less than two weeks to learn the offense and should improve but the play calling must improve as well.
Fantasy impact: Jennings is the number one receiver but the Vikings quarterback situation has to improve before he can be a reliable fantasy option. It's unfortunate for his fantasy value as wide receivers are going down right now and fantasy owners need options. On the year, Jennings has 20 catches for 286 yards and two touchdowns. No Vikings wide receiver is reliable right now and Jerome Simpson is leading them in targets with 39. Simpson dropped the best pass Freeman threw all night that would have been a touchdown. The Vikings face the Green Bay Packers in Week 8.
