Greg Jennings snaps out of funk in Week 15 for fantasy owners

Greg Jennings caught a big touchdown to make his fantasy day. What does this mean for owners.

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings caught a 57-yard touchdown pass in the first half Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. He finished the half with 114 receiving yards on seven receptions to help the Vikings get a 17-9 lead.

Both the receptions and yardage totals serve as season-highs for the first-year Viking. He was a massive disappointment entering the game with just 570 yards and three touchdowns on 48 receptions (81 targets) in the 2013 season.

Jennings is three seasons removed from a massive 1,265-yard, 12-touchdown campaign back in 2010 and he scored 25 TDs in his last 37 games with the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy impact: The Vikings don't have much of a rushing attack and they've had to air it out. Matt Asiata is starting at tailback and has been the only running back to touch the ball. Fantasy owners shouldn't be overly excited about this game from Jennings. He'll get a bad matchup next week against the Cincinnati Bengals in the fantasy championship and will only serve as a WR3.
