Greg Jennings erupts for 163 yards, one touchdown

Adam Bettcher

Greg Jennings finished Week 15 with 163 yards and a touchdown. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings had the best performance of his 2013 season on Sunday, and it couldn't have come at a better time for fantasy owners fighting through their playoffs. Jennings caught 11 of his 13 targets for 163 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

It appears as though quarterback Matt Cassel has been the difference-maker for Jennings. In Cassel's last three starts, Jennings now has a total of 23 receptions for 294 yards and two touchdowns. Of course, it also helped that Philadelphia's secondary hasn't been much of a challenge all season. With Adrian Peterson sidelined with an ankle injury, the passing game was in full force all afternoon.

Fantasy impact: Jennings may finally be settling into a functional fantasy option. As long as Cassel remains under center, Jennings should continue as a solid WR3. It's also worth monitoring the progress of Peterson. If the stud running back sits for another week, Jennings gets a slight boost in most formats. Jennings faces the Chicago Bears in Week 16.
