Greg Jennings injury: Vikings WR questionable, fantasy value already low

Hannah Foslien

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings is questionable for Sunday's game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings is listed as questionable for the team's Week 12 game against the NFC North rival Green Bay Packers. Jennings has an Achilles injury and missed Minnesota's Week 11 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

Most expect Jennings to play, but he did miss the aforementioned Seattle game after entering Sunday with a "probable" designation. He's been downgraded to questionable this time around, so nobody is quite sure what to expect of him.

Jennings has struggled this season, but so have his quarterbacks. None of the three potential starters have been anything special this season, and in fact, they've been outright bad. Christian Ponder is currently the starter, but it would make little difference if either Matt Cassel or Josh Freeman played. All have failed to get Jennings the ball this season.

Then again, maybe Jennings is just struggling. He has 34 receptions for 410 yards and two touchdowns on the season, trailing Jerome Simpson (492 yards).

Fantasy Impact: Again, Jennings is expected to play and should be the top option for Minnesota, but the questionable designation combined with the terrible Minnesota quarterbacks do not make for an attractive fantasy option. Even against a poor secondary like the one in Green Bay, it's hard to recommend starting Jennings at this point. He's a WR3 option at best.
