Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 9: Greg Jennings

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

The Vikings' dismal quarterback situation has left Greg Jennings with a low stat line. Should fantasy owners still trust him?

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings was signed in the offseason to give the passing game a boost, but he's been victimized by poor quarterback play. Through seven games, Jennings has just 25 catches for 336 yards and two touchdowns as the Vikings sunk to 1-6.

Things hit a low point in Week 8. Jennings was held to just one catch for nine yards in a loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Vikings have started three quarterbacks this season, each one as bad as the last. They are considering starting Christian Ponder over Josh Freeman against the Dallas Cowboys this week.

Fantasy impact: Minnesota's dire quarterback is having rippling effects over the rest of the offense.  Fantasy owners can't count on any kind of consistent production from Jennings right now, who hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 4 and has cleared 90 yards just once season. Adrian Peterson remains the only Viking worth starting.

Recommendation: Sit
