WR Greg Jennings - Miami Dolphins
|5-11, 192||Born: 9-21-1983||College: Western Michigan||Drafted: Round 2|
Week 12: at New York Jets
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Back in Week Four Miami was still in the grips of the Joe Philbin coaching regime, and they lost 14-27 to New York. Since then Ryan Tannehill has been up-and-down as a passer, currently ranking 15th in the NFL among fantasy quarterbacks after 10 games (226/359 for 2,642 yards, 17 TDs and 10 interceptions thrown). Last week vs. Dallas, Tannehill threw two TDs, but was limited to 13/24 for 188 yards passing, with an interception also to his detriment. He hit Jordan Cameron for a rare TD (five targets for 2/21/1 receiving), while Kenny Stills (two for 2/52/1) also snagged a TD. Jarvis Landry (seven for 4/66/0) was the other player who had over 25 yards receiving on the day. Not a lot to see here last week, folks. The Jets' pass D is ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 231.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 18 passing scores handed out vs. 10 interceptions (tied for 11th in the NFL) with 22 sacks (tied for 19th) generated. This team is ranked ninth-most in the NFL over the past four weeks (four games) in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks (23.2 per game), but is 30th in fantasy points given up to opposing tight ends (only 3.1 per contest), vs. sixth-most in fantasy points given up to opposing wide receivers (30.8 on average during that time span). T.J. Yates and Cecil Shorts combined for 17/35 yielding 241 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown last week (one sack taken for -9 yards); while two games ago the Jets' pass D limited Tyrod Taylor to 17/27 for 132 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown while generating four sacks for -26 yards. They've been up and down in this phase of the game of late. This is a neutral matchup for the visiting Dolphins.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 10 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Jennings continues to split time with Kenny Stills as a situational 3rd wide receiver in the Miami offense. Even if he or Stills secured full-time WR3 duties, it's unlikely that either would carve out fantasy relevance. The bulk of Ryan Tannehill's targets have been going to Jarvis Landry, Rishard Matthews, and Lamar Miller and that is unlikely to change anytime soon, save for an injury. Jennings is not on the fantasy radar.
2015 Week 7 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
Jennings caught the only two passes he saw come his way on Sunday, but one of his catches came while Matt Moore was in the game. Whether or not he or Kenny Stills is officially listed as the #3 receiver on the depth chart hasn't mattered since the bye because neither has been a factor. It remains to be seen if a third WR will step up for the Dolphins at some point this season, but the last two games have seen Ryan Tannehill throw fewer than 50 passes combined, and Campbell would probably like to keep it that way. Neither Jennings nor Stills are ownable in fantasy leagues at this point.
2015 Week 6 vs TEN (1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
After his demotion to the #4 WR position on Miami's depth chart, Jennings played a grand total of 9 snaps in the win vs. Tennessee. He'll play more in competitive games, but it's a sign that Jennings is being phased out of the game-plan. Especially with Dion Sims back and the Dolphins finally emphasizing and featuring Lamar Miller, Jennings is well off the radar in all fantasy leagues.
2015 Week 4 vs NYJ (7 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)
After being left for dead the first few weeks, and finding himself near the bottom of the WR depth chart, Greg Jennings came back and saw his way to 7 targets against the Jets on Sunday. Similar to Kenny Stills seeing 8 targets and leading the Dolphins in receiving in London, it's a head-scratching move, as Rishard Matthews had emerged as the #2 receiver in the offense after 3 very strong weeks and rookie DeVante Parker starting to claim a greater number of snaps. Jennings did nothing spectacular on the field, as Tannehill routinely missed throws due to pressure and just looking generally uncomfortable in the pocket. Maybe Philbin knew he was going to get canned and he ran Jennings out there as a show of good faith to one of his favorite players. While that's left to conspiracy theorists, Jennings is best left on the waiver wire, as Stills, Parker, and Matthews are all more talented players and the veteran shouldn't prove to be a factor in the offense, barring injury.
2015 Week 3 vs BUF (3 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings dropped a few passes early, and overall caught one pass. He's now clearly the 4th receiver through the rotation for the Dolphins, behind Landry, Matthews, and Parker. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Kenny Stills vault ahead of Jennings in the near future, as Jennings is slowing down mightily and Stills may be able to provide a deep threat/precise route runner, which Jennings cannot provide at this point in his career. Both are nowhere close to the fantasy radar at this moment, and more than likely, won't be a factor this season for the Dolphins, barring injury.
2015 Week 2 vs JAX (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jennings split the third WR duties with Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker, not recording a catch on a couple of targets. Jennings had a drop on the first series the Dolphins had on a third down play. Tannehill fit the ball into a tight window and the play would've resulted in a first down in the red zone. Jennings saw one more target on the day, an incompletion, but was rotating with Stills and Parker. He may end up dropping to fifth on the WR depth chart when all is said and done.
2015 Week 1 vs WAS (3 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Jennings was third in snaps among wide receivers during Week 1, hauling in each of his 3 targets. A Joe Philbin favorite, he has obviously slowed down as he turns 32 in a few weeks. However, with DeVante Parker still getting up to speed and the coaching staff still unimpressed with Kenny Stills, Jennings may hold onto the third WR spot for a few weeks. With a multi-week concussion for Dion Sims, Jennings played almost 70% of the snaps as well. However, in what's likely a rotational position between Stills, Jennings, and Parker for a little while, there won't be much value there.
