Greg Jennings active for Vikings, fantasy owners

Hannah Foslien

The Vikings will get their veteran wide receiver back into action after missing the team's Week 11 contest. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings is active for his team's matchup versus the Green Bay Packers.

Jennings will get a shot at his former team after being a last-minute scratch in Week 11 due to an Achilles injury. The veteran receiver managed to return to practice on Thursday and Friday after getting another day of rest on Wednesday, and will be all systems go for his return to Lambeau Field.

Fantasy Spin: Despite the encouraging news about his health, the quarterback position has been far too inconsistent in Minnesota and Jennings' numbers have taken a huge hit. Jennings is averaging just over six targets per game, and with an inefficient group of signal callers, it just doesn't present enough of a volume to translate into fantasy points.

Jennings has been kept out of the end zone in eight of his nine games and has not eclipsed the century mark in receiving yards during a game all season. He remains a desperation WR4 this week, even versus a banged-up Packers secondary.
