From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Jennings has a somewhat low weekly ceiling for a rosterable fantasy receiver, and his floor gets much lower when Darrelle Revis is sticking to him. Consider this week an aberration and chalk it up to a shutdown corner.

Week 3: at New Orleans Saints

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Matt Cassel stunk up the joint in Week 2, with four interceptions thrown and six sacks for -39 yards taken in the course of a 7-30 pounding by the Patriots. Cassel finished the day with 19/36 for 202 yards passing and one TD throw (to Matt Asiata, the new starting running back), leaning heavily on Asiata (seven targets for 5/48/1 receiving), Kyle Rudolph (eight for 5/53/0) and Cordarrelle Patterson (seven for 4/56/0). We'll see if the powder-puff Saints' D can improve Cassel's stats this week. The Saints' defense has allowed 63 points so far this year, helping to contribute to their poor start. Only the Jacksonville Jaguars have allowed more points (75) this season. The Saints handed over 24/41 for 202 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions to Brian Hoyer and the Browns last week (one sack for -2 yards) after being blasted by Matt Ryan and company in Week 1 (31/43 for 448 yards passing to Ryan, also surrendering three TD passes vs. zero interceptions and only one sack (for -3 yards) generated during the game.) This unit is far from right as of Week 3. Two struggling units face off in this game - neither has a clear edge over the other.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs STL (7 / 6 / 58 / 1 rec)

The most targeted receiver, Jennings saw a lot of action on shorter passes (as the offense is geared almost entirely for that), save for two occasions. One was an 18-yard reception down the middle of the field. On the play, quarterback Matt Cassel was under a lot of pressure from the edges, while Jennings ran a long inside slant. He split the Rams defensive zones perfectly and made a nice catch while wide open. His touchdown came on a fade route late in the second quarter. On the play Cassel faked handing the ball off, then immediately looked to see where Jennings was. Jennings had slipped behind the coverage and was wide open running towards the back corner of the end zone. Cassel's throw was a little high and hard, but where only Jennings could make a play--which he did for the score.

2014 Week 2 vs NE (4 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Jennings got a ticket to "Revis Island" this week and the result was a minimal amount of targets and almost no success catching them. He nearly had a touchdown but was ruled out of bounds and was the target on an interception which was hauled in by Revis. On the play, Jennings seemed to slow down during the route, while Revis kept going full speed. Quarterback Matt Cassel might have been throwing to a spot rather than to the receiver, which would account for why the ball went directly to Revis and not Jennings. Several other balls were definitely off target, behind him or to the side far too often. On the reversed touchdown, Jennings ran towards the end zone on a fade, and Cassel was hit while passing the ball. Jennings adjusted for a nice catch but didn't get both feet in as he crossed out of bounds.
