Greg Jennings falls short for fantasy owners in Week 16

John Grieshop

Greg Jennings caught four passes for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Greg Jennings came crashing back down to earth on Sunday after his 163-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 15. Jennings finished Week 16 with just four receptions for 27 yards. Jennings was targeted six times by the struggling Matt Cassel. The Cincinnati Bengals held the lead all afternoon, and Cassel simply couldn't get anything going during Minnesota's 42-14 loss. The only receiving touchdown of the afternoon went to Jarius Wright.

Fantasy impact: Jennings and Cassel have established some chemistry over the past few weeks. However, Sunday was another reminder that both are far from consistent. Fantasy owners should feel somewhat fortunate that Jennings even came away with four receptions. Cassel completed just 13 passes. Jennings is finally settling in as a WR3, but he'll continue to be a shaky start due to his quarterback. He currently has 63 receptions for 760 yards and four touchdowns.
