Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 5: Greg Jennings

Greg Jennings will look for his revenge against the Packers. Should fantasy owners take a chance on him?

Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Jennings wasn't pleased with the Green Bay Packers for allowing him to leave last season. He did rip quarterback Aaron Rodgers last season, but later regretted it as the season went on.

Jennings was tremendous with the Packers as his career ended there in 2012, but he hasn't quite matched that output in Minnesota. Last season, he only totaled 804 receiving yards, four touchdowns and 68 catches with the Vikings. He's on a similar pace this year with 15 catches, 204 receiving yards, one score and 15 catches.

The Packers have a solid passing defense and Jennings was also shut down in his two games against them last season. He only totaled three catches for 38 yards and no scores.

Fantasy impact: It's pretty clear that he's not a fantasy option. The Vikings are on the road on a short week, so it's even a worse circumstance. Jennings is far too risky to use as anything but a WR3 in 16-team leagues.
