Green Bay Packers fans and fantasy football owners will be glad to know that the Packers are expecting the receiver back into their lineup this coming week. Jennings has been out of the lineup for the Packers since week 4 while battling a groin injury. He has played just 69 snaps this season for Green Bay.
The Packers announced the decision on Twitter last night. “MM on Greg Jennings: We expect him to be a full participant and ready to go for MN.”
It was reported that Jennings might have been able to go last night when the Packers took on the New York Giants, but the team decided to rest him just one more week.
Fantasy Implication- Jennings should be started next week barring any setback he suffers this week. The Packers will face the reeling Minnesota Vikings twice, along with the Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans. He should be able to help struggling lineups down the stretch. You might want to scan you waiver wires just in case a fantasy owner became frustrated with Jennings lack of production and lingering injury issues and dropped him.
