WR Greg Jennings - Free Agent
|5-11, 192||Born: 9-21-1983||College: Western Michigan||Drafted: Round 2, pick 2006|
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.
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 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 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 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 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 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 12 vs NYJ (3 / 2 / 9 / 1 rec)
Greg Jennings made a cameo appearance for the Dolphins, catching a touchdown on a 4th and goal play in the fourth quarter of their loss against the Jets. Jennings was the clear #5 receiver, as when Rishard Matthews was hurt on the third offensive play of the game for Miami, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills both picked up the slack at receiver over Jennings. The veteran saw some burn though, catching his touchdown on a back-of-the-endzone crossing route. It was a consolation touchdown for the Dolphins, as it brought them within 3 scores at the time, late in the 4th quarter. Even if Matthews misses some time, Jennings is very unlikely to see a bump in snaps, let alone a jump in production.
2015 Week 17 vs NE (5 / 4 / 74 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings had easily his best game of the season on Sunday vs. the Patriots. Once Kenny Stills left the game, Jennings was the clear #3 receiver. He first turned a screen into a 20-yard play early in the game. Then, he ran under a perfectly thrown deep ball for a 31-yard play. His final big play came on a 3rd and long play, which was reviewed, before being ruled a catch. Jennings hadn't cleared the 40 receiving yards mark prior to Week 17. At a $5.5 million cap hit in 2016, and his former coach, Joe Philbin, no longer in town, Jennings will be out the door. Green Bay could really use his services right about now.
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.
2014 Week 3 vs NO (7 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)
Jennings appeared to be rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's favorite and most reliable target as he caught four of the six targets Bridgewater threw his direction, including a big play for 30 yards. On the play, Jennings found a way to split the zones (although it seemed a lot like the coverage was blown as well) and headed towards the left sideline. Bridgewater spotted him open and delivered the ball, which Jennings did a nice job of catching and turning upfield for a few extra yards. We'll have to see how this progresses, but it does look like Jennings could be getting a lot of attention from his new quarterback
2014 Week 4 vs ATL (4 / 3 / 72 / 0 rec)
Jennings was covered pretty well for most of the game, but was able to get open a few times and the attention he got definitely freed other receivers up for catches. Jennings was able to create separation any time he was in single coverage, which wasn't very often. On those plays though, Jennings and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater did a really good job of connecting and were on the same page. On one play, Jennings ran about ten yards straight out from the line of scrimmage, pushing past defensive end Kroy Biermann as he ran. Bridgewater delivered the ball perfectly, away from the defender which enabled Jennings to catch the ball in stride, allowing him to create more yards. On another long play, the coverage seemed to lose track of Jennings as he ran a deep out and Bridgewater wasted no time hitting him with a pass along the sideline for a big gain.
2014 Week 5 vs GB (6 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
Jennings didn't see any targets in the first half as the Packers did a great job of keeping him covered, while the front seven harried quarterback Christian Ponder and kept him from looking downfield. When he did finally see some passes, he was clearly not in a rhythm anymore. His first decent target was on a crossing route, during which he was wide open. Ponder threw it behind him, but Jennings should have hauled it in and dropped it instead. Jennings did well once he got settled again, making two nice catches while getting hammered by defenders. Overall this was a rough game for Jennings, in part because of defensive coverage and in part because of quarterback play.
2014 Week 6 vs DET (6 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Jennings was invisible until the first quarter as Minnesota turned into clear catch-up mode on offense. Even then, Jennings was relegated to crossing routes, added a dropped pass, and one of his receptions came in the closing minutes of garbage time. Jennings has not scored since Week 1, has just eight receptions over the past three games, and the Minnesota offense has had little working in back-to-back games. Matchups against the Bills and Buccaneers coming up offer some optimism.
2014 Week 7 vs BUF (7 / 6 / 77 / 0 rec)
Jennings' first catch was an impressive one as quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw the ball high and behind his receiver but Jennings made a one handed grab. The bulk of Jennings' yards came on a 38-yard reception in the second quarter. On the play, the Vikings had three receivers spread out with Jennings in the slot. Bridgewater dropped back and had plenty of time to scan the field. The ball was a little short of Jennings but he had great position on the defender, blocking the Bills player out so Jennings could make the catch. Overall Jennings did a very good job hauling the ball in, catching six of seven targets and finding ways to gain separation through route running and physicality.
2014 Week 8 vs TB (6 / 3 / 38 / 1 rec)
Jennings saw a lot of tight coverage and got little to no separation for most of the game, but managed to get some on his touchdown. On the play, he ran for the end zone on a deep route, getting just a little ahead of two defenders. Bridgewater threw a perfect pass, dropped the ball right in front of Jennings in the end zone for the score.
2014 Week 9 vs WAS (10 / 6 / 76 / 0 rec)
Jennings had great separation on the coverage for his first target, but Teddy Bridgewater overthrew him by two or three yards. While the next few targets were all high, causing Jennings to extend himself to make the catch and making it impossible for him to get yards after the catch, he was wide open on the fifth attempt and Bridgewater hit him along the sideline. The pass was a little off still and forced Jennings out of bounds--if it had hit him in stride, he had a lot more space to run in. That's the story of this game for Jennings though--each pass was just a bit off and it cost the team some yards and likely some completions in general.
2014 Week 11 vs CHI (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
The offensive line did its best impression of a set of subway turnstiles on Sunday, which made it hard for quarterback teddy Bridgewater to find his receivers on long routes, which certainly hurt Jennings' ability to contribute. In fact his first target didn't come until the third quarter on an incomplete pass where either Jennings didn't run the route quite right or Bridgewater simply missed. His single catch came a short time later as he ran a route across the middle of the field and made the catch while the defender was draped over him.
2014 Week 12 vs GB (6 / 4 / 38 / 1 rec)
Jennings first catch was on a wildly high Teddy Bridgewater throw, but Jennings did an excellent job extending his body to make the catch and then holding onto the ball when the defender hit him. Jennings' next target was on the baffling interception thrown by Bridgewater, where he just seemed to heave it up into the air. The ball was far too short for Jennings to make a play and all he could do was sit on safety Micah Hyde when he fell to the ground after making the interception. The two never really synced up until in the fourth quarter, when Jennings made two nice catches, the second for a touchdown. On that play, Jennings ran a drag route across the field and the Packers never covered him, which gave Bridgewater a wide open target for a touchdown.
2014 Week 13 vs CAR (6 / 5 / 45 / 1 rec)
The Vikings were up so quickly and so early that the stopped passing the ball and as a result, Greg Jennings went long stretches without any targets. His biggest play was a 17 yard catch-and-run for a touchdown late in the second quarter. On the play, Jennings ran a short, five-yard out and found himself wide open. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater delivered the ball and the cornerback was playing way too far off, so by the time he closed the gap on Jennings, the receiver was able to cut inside him and make him miss the tackle. Jennings then ran towards the end zone, dragging one would-be tackler with him across the goal line. The only pass Jennings "missed" came when he ran a crossing route and was knocked over by a defender. Under pressure, Teddy Bridgewater threw the ball where Jennings was on the ground to avoid the sack or the intentional grounding. The second throw was a short pass to Greg Jennings which Jennings caught while wide open. He made a defender miss, then ran through a tackle on the way to the end zone.
2014 Week 14 vs NYJ (7 / 5 / 52 / 0 rec)
The veteran receiver was a very reliable target for Teddy Bridgewater catching five out of seven targets, largely on shorter routes where Jennings would make the catch then get a few extra yards afterwards. Jennings did a good job of getting open on his initial route, then finding a way to slip or avoid a tackle and gain the first down. Jennings made an especially nice grab in the third quarter on a 2nd and 4th play. On that pass, he ran a deep out, then had to extend his body when Bridgewater delivered the ball a little off target. He secured the ball and got both feet in before going out of bounds.
2014 Week 15 vs DET (5 / 3 / 43 / 1 rec)
Jennings was well-covered much of the day, but he still made his presence felt several times, including on a gorgeous catch along the sideline in the first quarter. On that play, the pass should have gone to his outside shoulder, but Teddy Bridgewater threw it inside towards the sideline. Jennings had to turn completely around and reach behind him to scoop up the ball before it hit the turf. Jennings was also the target of Bridgewater's touchdown pass. On the play, Jennings lined up on the left side of the formation, in the slot position. At the snap, he ran behind the line of scrimmage to the right side of the field, and then turned upfield. As he did, Bridgewater threw a soft pass to him, which he caught and easily carried the ball into the end zone.
2014 Week 16 vs MIA (3 / 3 / 56 / 1 rec)
Jennings biggest play was his 20-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter. On the play he gained a step on the coverage and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater hit him with a nice pass for the score, giving Minnesota a 14-0 lead, which unfortunately didn't hold. Bridgewater didn't go back to him until the third quarter, where he targeted him three times, including a long 24-yard pass where Jennings was able to outmaneuver cornerback Brent Grimes. Unfortunately, the Vikings turned the ball over five plays later and Jennings never saw the ball again. While Jennings was able to slip away a few times, the Miami Dolphins did a nice job of keeping him contained through both coverage and pressure on the quarterback.
2014 Week 17 vs CHI (5 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec)
Jennings almost started his day off with a bang as on his first target he almost came down with an amazing catch for a touchdown. On the play, Jennings ran a "fly" route and had a step on the coverage. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw the ball just ahead of Jennings, although it was a tad underthrown, allowing cornerback Kyle Fuller to catch up. The play was called a touchdown as Jennings contorted his body into a pretzel shape trying to catch the ball, while Fuller was right on top of him. Unfortunately, the replay clearly showed the ball hit the turf and was incomplete. Jennings made up for the miss with a fantastic one-handed catch along the left sideline in the fourth quarter. On the play he was wide open, but Bridgewater's toss was just a little high, but Jennings adjusted and grabbed the ball with one hand. Jennings pulled the ball in and turned upfield, making one defender miss before being dragged down by a second.
2013 Week 1 vs DET (7 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
It looks very much like Greg Jennings and Christian Ponder aren't quite on the same page yet, which would account for the handful of targets Jennings saw as compared to other guys like Jerome Simpson. A lot of the passes thrown to Jennings were off target. They were just behind, just too high, on the wrong shoulder,you name it, it went wrong. Jennings made some tremendous efforts to bring the balls down but most of time just couldn't come down with it. Jennings did make an excellent catch at 9:41 in the third quarter where Ponder threw a pass very low and behind Jennings, but the receiver made an outstanding effort to get the ball. Jennings dragged both feet, twisting his body backwards as he fell to make the catch. Most of the problems between Ponder and Jennings should fade over time, as it seemed more like they were still getting the timing down than either one struggling badly otherwise.
2013 Week 2 vs CHI (6 / 5 / 84 / 0 rec)
After a Week 1 where it seemed as though Greg Jennings and his quarterback Christian Ponder were still lacking in the chemistry department, Week 2 saw a lot more synchronicity. Ponder targeted Jennings a team-high six times, at least half of which were long balls Jennings caught. On the first, an 18 yard throw down the right sideline, Jennings put a lovely move on cornerback Tim Jennings and got around him. Ponder dropped the ball perfectly in stride, though he left Jennings hanging for a big hit by safety Chris Conte. Jennings held on for the catch. The second long throw a minute later was pretty short and Jennings couldn't get free of Tillman enough to make the catch. Jennings also made a great catch on a perfect throw by Ponder near the end of the fourth quarter. On the play, cornerback Isaiah Frey fell behind Jennings as he crossed on his route and Ponder put the ball perfectly between Frey and the safety for Jennings to make the catch. While Jennings took another big hit (which might worry you as eventually that could catch up with him over the course of the season), he again held onto the ball for another big gain. It looks very much like Jennings and Ponder have gotten on the same page and will be very productive.
2013 Week 3 vs CLE (6 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings had a long day as Cleveland was intent on making sure he couldn't find any open space in which to operate. The second pass of the game found Jennings wide open down the sideline for a big play, but after that almost all of his chances came on shorter passes. Jennings did almost score on a short lob from Christian Ponder in the end zone. Cornerback Buster Skrine made a nice play throwing his hands up in the air and batting the ball away before Jennings could secure it. That was Jennings' only shot at the end zone on an otherwise quiet day.
2013 Week 4 vs PIT (4 / 3 / 92 / 2 rec)
It wasn't the quantity with Greg Jennings on Sunday, but the quality. Four targets is a pretty low number but when two of them are touchdowns, it's hard to complain. Overall the Steelers did a pretty good job of covering Jennings, including on the very first target. The ball was slapped down by Cameron Heyward but might have been picked off by safety Ryan Clark who was right on top of Jennings. On the next target, Jennings showed why the Vikings were so interested in having him on board. On the play, Jennings ran a short route down the sideline, tined and caught a short seven yard pass, then turned and made cornerback Cortez Allen miss. Jennings then broke upfield and cut inside, making another defender miss. After that he accelerated and while two more defenders dove at his feet, they weren't stopping him from scoring. His other touchdown involved a lot less running, though plenty of effort anyway. On the play, Jennings began his route by running towards the end zone, then took a step towards the outside corner. While he sold the outside step, Jennings then pivots inside and it's all the defender (again Cortez Allen) can do to keep his feet. Cassel puts the ball high and where only Jennings will get it and the receiver hauls it in for the score.
2013 Week 6 vs CAR (10 / 6 / 34 / 0 rec)
The very first target for Greg Jennings didn't bode well for his day as it was terribly overthrown and resulted in an interception. All Jennings appeared to be doing was a an "IN" route about 20 yards deep but Cassel threw it much longer--whether it was just an awful throw or a mixup where Cassel expected Jennings to run a "Post" isn't clear but the result was a pass nowhere near the receiver. The next target resulted in a very nice catch by Jennings, as Cassel rolled to his right and delivered a hard pass right on the sideline. Jennings caught the ball cleanly and tapped both toes in for the catch. After a very quiet first half, Jennings saw a lot more targets but he and Cassel continued to have issues connecting on anything more than short passes. He was the target on an underthrown ball in the third quarter which forced Jennings to stop his route and come back for and then was nearly intercepted and then the target on another pass--this one overthrown--which was intercepted. The play took place in the fourth quarter, on another "IN" route. In this case, Jennings was already well covered but instead of leading his receiver, Cassel let the ball get away from him and threw it high where it was once again caught by safety Mike Mitchell. Jennings did drop a ball late in the fourth quarter on a short pass out along the left sideline, but for the most part his quiet day was a combination of good coverage, short catches and badly overthrown balls.
2013 Week 7 vs NYG (10 / 4 / 41 / 0 rec)
Right about now, Greg Jennings has to be feeling worse than when he told Ben Goessling of ESPN that if someone had told him he'd play with so many quarterbacks in such a short stretch of time, he might not have signed with Minnesota. Jennings may have played it off as a joke, but perhaps there is some truth to it. While Jennings saw more targets (10) than any other receiver, many were wildly off target and badly thrown. While Jennings was often able to find room to work with against the Giants' bruised and battered secondary, quarterback Josh Freeman just couldn't hit him with a pass. The balls were often behind Jennings and he also got hung out to dry across the middle more than once, though the worst one resulted in being destroyed by Giants safety Antrel Rolle and left Jennings shaking his head to clear the dust. Freeman was just not able get the ball to Jennings. Part of that is chemistry--Freeman had practiced just four days with his offensive players--but we may be seeing the limitations of what Freeman can do post-Tampa Bay in which case Jennings could be in for a real roller coaster ride.
2013 Week 8 vs GB (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
This must have been a nightmare for Greg Jennings. To see your former team, who you haven't exactly been saying nice things about the past months, come into your stadium, punch your team in the mouth and do it without most of their top receiver options--that just can't feel good. Neither can almost being shut out by your old team. On his very first target, Jennings started to go out on a short route, but quarterback Christian Ponder took the snap and then threw the ball where Jennings had been moments before. Clearly Ponder expected the play to be a screen while Jennings thought it was something else. Either way, to see them not on the same page in Week 8 is not a good sign. Jennings did draw a questionable pass interference call on Packers quarterback Tramon Williams at the end of the first half, which would lead to an Adrian Peterson touchdown. The last target was thrown in the fourth quarter behind Jennings and at his feet. Overall, Jennings was well covered by the Packers' secondary, and even when he wasn't he and Ponder seemed to be out of sorts.
2013 Week 9 vs DAL (9 / 6 / 56 / 0 rec)
It looks as if Greg Jennings and Christian Ponder are finally beginning to "click" and Ponder looks like he is targeting Jennings more often. That is a good news/bad news sort of situation as his tendency to look for Jennings--much like his tendency to aim the ball in tight end Kyle Rudolph's direction during the 2012 season--can be used against him. This week, Dallas cornerback Orlando Scandrick took advantage of it early in the fourth quarter. On the play, Jennings went on a long vertical route and Scandrick appeared to watch Ponder's eyes. Ponder, as he sometimes does, stared Jennings down and Scandrick drifted towards the receiver. Ponder threw a high ball, a tad short, and didn't seem to see Scandrick in the area. The Cowboys defensive back made a nice leaping grab and picked the ball off, killing the drive. The most effective the two are seems to be on the shorter routes, though the vast majority of Ponder's throws were short so it's hard to know if the two can be more effective long than they were on the interception. Still, it seems like they are on the same page most of the time now, so this could be the start of a nice run of production.
2013 Week 10 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
The targets for Greg Jennings continue to bounce up and down from game-to-game, with this past game against Washington definitely in the column marked "down." It didn't start off well either. The very first target was a wildly underthrown ball on a deep route. Not only was the ball underthrown but quarterback Christian Ponder failed to see safety Brandon Meriweather coming across the field. The combination resulted in an interception and a big return. Jennings was targeted three more times by Ponder, catching all three. He was never targeted by replacement quarterback Matt Cassel after Ponder went down with a shoulder injury at the end of the third quarter.
2013 Week 12 vs GB (3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
The first time former Packers and current Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings saw his old team, he was only able to haul in one pass and his team lost. This time out was little better as Jennings saw the same amount of targets (three) and was well covered throughout the game. In fact, his very first target didn't come until midway through the third quarter. His route was a short "post" across the middle and quarterback Christian Ponder hit him in stride. Jennings was able to add on a few more yards because of that before being brought down. Jennings had an opportunity to extend a drive late in overtime when Ponder hit him with a short pass. Jennings couldn't hold onto the ball though and the Vikings were forced to punt the ball away. The pass wasn't great but it hit Jennings in the hands and is the sort of pass a receiver has to catch.
2013 Week 13 vs CHI (9 / 7 / 78 / 1 rec)
After seeing very little action from starter Christian Ponder, Greg Jennings was very busy when Matt Cassel entered the game. Jennings ran several intermediate routes, resulting in receptions of 11 and 19 yards. One both catches, Jennings did a good job getting separation from defenders and then catching the ball cleanly before being tackled. On his 8-yard touchdown in the middle of the fourth quarter, Jennings ran a corner pattern to the far corner of the end zone. Under intense pressure, Cassel threw the ball where only Jennings could get it and the receiver did a good job of getting both feet in while securing the ball. Jennings continued making big catches in overtime, including a key first-down conversion where the receiver found himself wide open along the left sideline and helped set up the game winning field goal.
2013 Week 14 vs BAL (10 / 5 / 53 / 0 rec)
Quarterback Matt Cassel threw the ball to Greg Jennings a lot but the veteran wide receiver had a hard time shaking coverage. The two had the most success hooking up on short passes, when Jennings lined up against linebackers or could take advantage of the coverage giving him some cushion because of the elements. Overall, Jennings didn't have a huge impact on the game but his constant targets means that regardless of who is the quarterback, he will be heavily involved in the game plan.
2013 Week 15 vs PHI (13 / 11 / 163 / 1 rec)
Sunday was the day when it all came together for Greg Jennings as a Minnesota Viking. He saw a high volume of targets which were actually catchable, was able to get separation and make some really big plays. The biggest was the 57-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter which gave the Vikings a lead they never relinquished. On the play, Jennings lined up on the left side in the slot and ran a post-corner across the field to the right sideline. Matt Cassel did an excellent job of standing in the pocket under pressure so Jennings could get open. Jennings did so and then Cassel hit him with a picture-perfect pass which Jennings caught in stride and took to the end zone. Overall, Calle and Jennings appeared to have perfect chemistry and timing. Wherever Cassel threw the ball, Jennings was there and Cassel constantly put his receiver in situations he could win with excellent ball placement. Previous defenses have been able to keep up with Jennings by playing a very physical game against him and sometimes bringing a safety over to help a corner. On Sunday, the Eagles seemed to be content to play off him in man coverage and he burned them on a consistent basis.
2013 Week 16 vs CIN (6 / 4 / 27 / 0 rec)
As was the case with every Vikings receiver, Greg Jennings suffered through a miserable performance by quarterback Matt Cassel. Luckily for Jennings, Cassel was more accurate on short passes--at least ones aimed to Jennings--and that's where the receiver made most of his catches. He was the target of an interception though, a back-breaking pick-six in the second quarter. On the play, Jennings ran a short button hook type route--unfortunately the play design had three receivers in the same spot and with defensive lineman Michael Johnson dropping back, there were too many defenders in the area.
2013 Week 17 vs DET (6 / 5 / 44 / 0 rec)
It hasn't been an easy season for Greg Jennings, as he has had to get used to a new offense while seeing a different quarterback on an almost weekly basis. Jennings is also learning what it's like to lack a quarterback who can throw you open. Matt Cassel isn't that guy, so the majority of Jennings' catches come when he has managed to get separation, as was the case Sunday. Cassel isn't going to make many pinpoint accurate passes, so Jennings didn't see a high number of targets. The Lions overall did a good job of blanketing him, but Jennings did manage to break free a few times and made the most of those chances.
2012 Week 1 vs SF (9 / 5 / 34 / 0 rec)
Like the entire Green Bay offense, Jennings was completely held in check. Jennings traditionally works the seams for the Green Bay offense, but there was nothing to be had as the San Francisco consistently applied pressure and did a phenomenal job in coverage. All five of Jennings' catches were underneath and the suffocating 49er defense did a tremendous job forcing everything either to the sideline or making the immediate tackle. Jennings was targeted nine times, tied for second on the team, but was only able to complete half of them for a long of 10 yards. Jennings disappeared for stretches of the game, but again, that appeared to be more a result of the 49er defense rather than Rodgers looking elsewhere.
2012 Week 3 vs SEA (10 / 6 / 35 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings had a tough time getting back into this offense on Monday night and Seattle's tough pass defense did not make it any easier. Jennings looked good early on, diving for a low pass from Rodgers and securing the tough catch. Jennings's catches were mostly on short out patterns as Rodgers didn't have the time in the pocket to throw deep down the field. Seattle's pass rush was ferocious at times and their secondary did an excellent job of playing tight coverage against Jennings and the WR co. Jennings's almost had a touchdown in second half, hauling in a short pass in the goal line and then diving for the pylon but he was ruled 1 yard shy of the touchdown after review. The entire packer offense was thrown out of synch and had no rhythm on Monday night due to Seattle's tough defense. They played to take away the deep passing game and forced the Packers to take the underneath routes against tight man coverage which made a long day for guys like WR Jennings.
2012 Week 4 vs NO (3 / 1 / 9 / 1 rec)
His stat line shows 1/9/1, but the main reason it wasn't a huge day is because he was on the field for only about 15 snaps before his groin started acting up again and he sat out for the day. Luckily for fantasy owners he had the touchdown, otherwise this would have been a horrific stat line.
2012 Week 13 vs MIN (8 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)
Jennings finally came back from his groin injury, just in time to have Jordy Nelson's hamstring act up. Jennings definitely looked rusty in the first half but also had some balls thrown his way which were simply uncatchable and merely a result of Aaron Rodgers dumping the ball off under pressure. His third target was really the first one he had a shot at but cornerback AJ Jefferson made a great play to knock the ball (Which was low)away. Jennings was also the player targeted on the Harrison Smith interception in the third quarter and there wasn't much he could do there to stop it. Jennings did make a nice catch to set up a James Starks touchdown late in the third and another key catch for a first down which extended a key 11 minute drive in the fourth quarter. Jennings and Rodgers will take some time to get back into a rhythm but by the looks of it, that shouldn't take all that long.
2012 Week 14 vs DET (4 / 1 / 27 / 0 rec)
After an opening quarter when the Packers only had one drive, Jennings caught a deep pass down the right sideline to open their second drive in the second quarter. Rodgers overthrew Jennings in the endzone later in the game for what would have been a touchdown.
2012 Week 15 vs CHI (7 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)
If the writing wasn't on the wall already, it's been posted in neon since his return--Jennings is not the primary receiver on this team. He still sees his share of targets, but he's not being sent on the vertical routes as much anymore and Aaron Rodgers is much more likely to look for Randall Cobb, James Jones or (when healthy) Jordy Nelson. Jennings saw a lot of short yardage work, running some slants and short outs. It was on one of these shorter routes that Jennings had his biggest play. With the Packers on their own 11, Jennings ran a short hook down the right side of the field. The coverage was much deeper, so Jennings had a giant cushion to make the catch, which he did. One defender flew past him as he made the grab and then Jennings shook off another would-be tackler. Jennings fought his way down field , hopping and spinning to evade defenders and finally brought down for a 19 yard gain.
2012 Week 16 vs TEN (9 / 7 / 45 / 1 rec)
Jennings gave Packers fans and fantasy players a glimmer of hope for his injury-plagued 2012 season. The veteran receiver caught seven passes for forty-five yards - mostly on wide receiver screens - and came in second on the Packers with nine targets. Ryan Grant's thirty-four yard screen pass catch set up a one-yard touchdown reception for Jennings, which was only his second score of the season. With Randall Cobb's ankle injury and Jermichael Finley and James Jones serving as vertical threats for Aaron Rodgers, it stands to reason that a convalescing Jennings will serve as more of a possession receiver and short-passing in the Packers' receiver corps in the games that remain. Jennings, to his credit, featured reliable hands and proved determine to generate yards after the catch on his receptions, so the Packers trust him enough to give him a steady diet of targets, though it remains to be seen if Green Bay will dial up any big plays for him.
2012 Week 17 vs MIN (12 / 8 / 120 / 2 rec)
Jennings first reception came on second and 27 when he was wide open for 20 yards against zone coverage. On third and seven, Jennings caught a quick pass in the flat before slipping past one defender and power past two more for a first down. Jennings dropped a wide open touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers as he fell to the ground at the goalline. It was a rare lack of concentration from the veteran receiver. Jennings made up for that drop with a touchdown pass on the next play when he came free wide open at the back of the endzone. Jennings caught a 14 yard curl route against zone coverage on first and 10. Jennings found plenty of space underneath when in the slot as the Vikings blitz. Jennings caught the ball before sidestepping two Vikings defenders(who ran into each other) and running down the field for a 40 yard gain. Rodgers went straight back to Jennings in the endzone, as he took advantage of a blown coverage for the easy touchdown. Jennings caught a bubble screen and used his blocking and a stiff arm to gain 12 yards. On third and four, late in the fourth quarter, Jennings made an excellent hands reception on a slant route from the slot. The defender was tight to him and he caught a fastball from Rodgers with ease.
2012 Week 18 vs MIN (6 / 4 / 61 / 0 rec)
On third and 19, Jennings caught his first pass on a seam route for 14 yards. On fourth and five, Jennings caught a pass by the sideline behind the first down marker, but evaded a tackle and sprinted down the field for a big gain. Jennings caught a deep curl for 12 yards during the Packers' no-huddle at the end of the second quarter. Jennings caught a quick pass in the flat against single coverage but was limited to a two yard gain.
2012 Week 19 vs SF (8 / 6 / 54 / 1 rec)
Jennings caught Rodgers' first pass attempt with a five yard curl underneath when he dived forward for a total gain of seven. Jennings didn't see the ball at all until the third quarter, when he caught a short curl route for just four yards outside. On the very next play however, Jennings adjusted to a deep backshoulder throw over the middle to make an excellent reception. Jennings caught another quick six yard out from the slot position to start the fourth quarter. He followed that up with a short crossing route before spinning forward for a five yard gain. On third and four, Jennings was able to beat the 49ers' secondary deep, but couldn't make a finger tip reception for a huge gain in the redzone. On what is likely to be his final play for the Packers, Jennings caught a touchdown pass in the corner of the endzone after losing his man in coverage.
2011 Week 1 vs NO (8 / 7 / 89 / 1 rec)
Greg Jennings put on a clinic at the wide receiver position and showed the kind of relationship he has with Aaron Rodgers - almost a sixth sense. That was most evident on the Packers opening drive when Rodgers found Jennings with a back shoulder fade pass for a touchdown. Jennings turned around at exactly the correct moment and Rodgers hit him with a laser pass. Jennings was consistently able to get open against the Saints defensive backs, no matter what route he was asked to run. He made some terrific adjustments to passes too - he caught a low pass that he had no right catching and later he made a catch along the sidelines despite being interfered with. If this game is anything to go by, Greg Jennings is poised for a very productive season.
2011 Week 2 vs CAR (8 / 2 / 55 / 1 rec)
Greg Jennings was kept under wraps for most of the game by Chris Gamble. Passes thrown his way early were batted down or wide of the mark due to the pressure on Rodgers. Jennings redeemed himself by taking advantage of a lapse in coverage, running a post route - turning the safety the wrong way in the process - and scoring a walk-in touchdown. Jennings did manage to get open in this game but the coverage was very solid for the most part. If this was a quiet day for Jennings, his owners should be happy.
2011 Week 3 vs CHI (10 / 9 / 119 / 0 rec)
Jennings opened up the game with six receptions on six targets for 78 yards in the first quarter alone. Whether it was short dumps out into the flat to give Jennings time to work up field, or sideline routes a little deeper into the secondary or even quick slants right off of the line of scrimmage, Rodgers to Jennings looked like money in the bank for Green Bay after the first 15 minutes. However, Rodgers began to spread the ball around after that, and as the Chicago defense tried to adjust, it seemed like Green Bay would move up and down the field as they pleased. Then in the 4th quarter, Jennings again stepped up to help his team. He made a great catch on a crossing route over the middle, where the ball was throw a little high. Jennings went up and came down with it though, and turned it into a big 25 yard gain. On the next series, with the pocket collapsing, Rodgers scrambled out and found Jennings on a comeback route for another 13 yard gain to keep the drive and the clock moving. While Jermichael Finley was the big red zone target of the day, Jennings finished the game as the leading receiver with nine receptions for almost 120 yards.
2011 Week 4 vs DEN (7 / 7 / 103 / 1 rec)
His 1st catch of the game was out of the slot on a 3 WR set on 3rd down. Jennings of course makes the catch and moves the sticks. It's important to note since there are so many WRs used in this Green Bay passing attack just where these guys are lining up and when they are in the game. His 2nd catch was out of the slot again, very simple stick route for 15 yards in the 2 minute offense. His touchdown catch was again in the slot on the right side and whatever Denver was thinking it did not involve covering Greg Jennings as he came off the line untouched and went streaking into the end zone for an easy six points. Jennings set the pace and was very involved throughout the game. He was not asked to run very precise routes and was left to roam free in the slot for most of the night. Denver never really had any answers for him.
2011 Week 5 vs ATL (5 / 4 / 82 / 1 rec)
Jennings is the one target on this team that is consistent. When Rodgers gets in trouble, he always seems to look for Jennings. Early in the game, Rodgers had to scramble and he found Jennings breaking away down the right side for a 39 yard gain. Then in the 2nd half, Jennings took a slant pass, broke a tackle, ran towards the sideline, and dove for the pylon for a beautiful touchdown.
2011 Week 6 vs STL (10 / 6 / 82 / 0 rec)
It wasn't Jennings best game. Miscommunication led to a couple failed attempts by Rodgers to get him the ball in the endzone in the first half. He also had the aforementioned drop that led to the rare Rodgers interception, in which the fault had to lie entirely on Jennings shoulder. Even despite those miscues, Jennings remains the one WR that continually gets the ball, getting 10 targets and still posting very solid numbers in any format. Four of his 6 catches went for first downs, and Jennings continued to make his money over the middle, with slant passes and quick throws that are virtually impossible to defend. Rodgers wasn't able to connect with him deep, but Jennings made easy work of the Rams cornerbacks all game long.
2011 Week 7 vs MIN (10 / 7 / 147 / 1 rec)
For the most part, Jennings had a 'typical' game for him and Aaron Rodgers in this contest. He made tough grabs, in traffic, went over the middle and caught the tough side-line routes. He was a big part of the offense and frequently drew double coverage from the Vikings in this game. His big play came early in the third quarter though, when he broke down the right side of the field. The defensive coverage broke down and when the CB released Jennings to the Safety, Husain Abdullah blew the coverage and moved up to cover Donald Driver. Jennings sprinted into the open field and Rodgers lofted him a pass deep down the right side of the field. When Jennings caught it, there wasn't a defender within 30 yards of him, and he literally jogged into the end zone to put Green Bay up for the first time in the game. It was a 79 yard TD reception.
2011 Week 9 vs SD (8 / 6 / 46 / 1 rec)
Green Bay clearly spread the ball around a great deal, as seven players caught passes but nobody caught more than Jennings' six. He was mostly quiet in the first half, with just a nice diving grab to the outside on third and long. But in the second half, he made an incredible catch while stretching out for a bullet pass from Rodgers. He made a quick slant after a great move off the line, was hit in stride with a great fingertip grab, and picked up more yardage after the catch. But it was his touchdown catch that really rewarded his fantasy owners. It looked to be dual possession in the end zone off a back shoulder pass from the five yard line. On replay, it looked like he actually took possession away from the defender, then somehow pinned the ball against his helmet to maintain possession, and held on for the score as he was taken to the ground.
2011 Week 10 vs MIN (5 / 3 / 32 / 1 rec)
He made his touchdown look so easy. Play action pass off a fake draw where Jennings is lined up to the left and runs it up the seam and then breezes past the Vikings' DB and into the end zone for an easy score. This made it 14-0 in the 1st quarter for the Packers and put them on the path to victory. Rodgers spread it around to everyone and the packers were never threatened so Jennings was not overly targeted for the night.
2011 Week 11 vs TB (6 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)
Was not targeted a lot early on in the game and also went down awkwardly at the end of the 1st half. The Packers were effective going to other receivers and there was no need to force the ball into Jennings. he was on the field in the 2nd half and drew at least one flag but Rodgers went to his other receivers.
2011 Week 12 vs DET (5 / 5 / 74 / 1 rec)
Jennings quietly racked up the most receptions from any of the Packers, and finished with 74 yards and a TD. He had just two receptions in the first half, but the second was a three yard TD catch. On the play, Aaron Rodgers called a play action and rolled out to his right - dumping the ball to a wide open Jennings in the end zone. Jennings also had two receptions for 25 yards in the first half, but both were called back due to offensive penalties. Jennings drew a pass interference penalty as well that set up his TD reception two plays later. In the second half, Jennings had two consecutive passes thrown his way - a square in and a quick swing that both went for 19 yards each and helped set up John Kuhn's TD run. His final reception was a big 31 yard floater from Rodgers where the defender lost track of the ball and Jennings made a perfect catch.
2011 Week 13 vs NYG (13 / 7 / 94 / 1 rec)
Greg Jennings made a big impression on this game but his biggest play came on a questionable call by the referees. Jennings had minimal control on the ball in the endzone and subsequently dropped it soon after but the call was not over turned and Jennings got his first touchdown. Jennings had several chances downfield in this game but Rodgers either missed him or the coverage was too good. He did manage to haul in passes on the sideline, over the middle and anywhere his QB could find him. He was even left wide open on the sideline as he found the soft spot in the zone. Jennings had one drop in this game but it was not for a big gain. He also drew a PI call on a fade route which helped his down late in the game. Rodgers spread the ball well and kept teammates like Finley and Nelson involved frequently which prevented Jennings from having a huge day however.
2011 Week 14 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Jennings had a TD knocked away on an excellent play by the defender. He twice made nifty moves on short hitches, picking up extra yardage. On the second, however, he had to leave the game with a knee injury and was eventually carted to the locker room
2011 Week 19 vs NYG (7 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings had an "off" day and really didn't make the kind of plays in the passing game you would expect from him despite numerous opportunities. A chance for a big play was missed early in the game as QB Rodgers misfired and overthrew a wide open Jennings that would have been a walk in touchdown. Later in the game Jennings got lucky on a questionable decision not to overturn a "down by contact" call on the field as it looked like Jennings had lost control of the ball before his knee touched the surface. Jennings had another sure touchdown catch as he beat the NYG DB on a double move, leaving him wide open but Rodgers was strip sacked and the Giants recovered the fumble which erased another opportunity for Jennings to come up big. However, when Jennings finally had a decent attempt at a touchdown pass deep on a wheel route, he let the ball get to close and hit him on the head before falling incomplete. This all around bizarre performance was very uncharacteristic of the high standard of play people expect from Jennings and the packers offense. "Rust" and being slightly off in almost every phase looked to be an issue for a lot of Packer players and definitely the skilled positions.
2010 Week 1 vs PHI (10 / 5 / 82 / 1 rec)
Greg Jennings started the game slow but picked up more catches in the second half. Jennings led all Packers with 10 targets including six in the first half. Jennings had modest gains (16 yards or less) prior to halftime but his biggest grab came on a play where he beat single coverage and Aaron Rodgers hit him in stride for a 32-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
2010 Week 2 vs BUF (5 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)
Jennings did ok with his limited opportunities, but most of the downfield throws went Finley or James Jones. He took a loss on a quick hitter, but also had perfect timing on a back shoulder throw from Rodgers. There will be weeks like this, but Jennings is still the most explosive WR in the most explosive pass offense.
2010 Week 3 vs CHI (6 / 2 / 18 / 1 rec)
He caught a touchdown on the opening drive and then we didn't hear from him the rest of the night. Seriously, the disappearing act he pulled after the 1st drive was unexplainable, inexcusable, and for many owners had to be downright frustrating after things looked so promising on the opening drive. It wasn't that he was injured, and it wasn't that he was locked down all night either. Jennings was targeted 3 more times in the 1st half and once on a deep route but he just wasn't able to hook up with Rodgers. Sadly he had no targets in the 2nd half and Rodgers took everything the Bears were willing to give to him which included a lot of balls to his TE. Jennings did score a touchdown and has 2 of them already this year so in touchdown heavy league most owners are probably pleased. Jennings seems to be the deep option right now and all things underneath and over the middle is handled by Driver and Finley.
2010 Week 4 vs DET (5 / 2 / 25 / 1 rec)
Jennings had a quiet game for the Packers, finishing the game with just two receptions. The TD reception was a nice grab, where he was working one-on-one against Jonathan Wade. Jennings came down with the reception for the TD, putting the Packers up 21-7. Early in the third quarter, Jennings had another target deep in the end zone, but couldn't get both feet down for the score. Rodgers tried to get the ball to him in single coverage later in the game but was unsuccessful. On the one play, the ball was underthrown and Chris Houston came up with the interception. The next pass that came his way was deep down the middle of the field, with Jennings working one-on-one against Alphonso Smith. Both guys went up, but it was Smith that ultimately came down with the ball, pulling it out of Jennings' hands when the went to the ground. Jennings had another target deep in the end zone, but couldn't get both feet down for the score.
2010 Week 5 vs WAS (5 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Jennings had a quiet game for Green Bay and fantasy owners alike. He caught the first pass from Rodgers to open the game - a nice eight yard comeback play, but had only one target after that in the entire first half. He had one nice 14 yard reception as Rodgers pushed the ball to him to avoid the blitz, but Jennings disappeared after that until the overtime period. In the 5th quarter, Jennings was targeted twice - the first was well defended and the second was the underthrown pass that was picked off.
2010 Week 6 vs MIA (7 / 6 / 133 / 1 rec)
Jennings was easily the most - if not only - dangerous receiver out there for the Packers. In addition to beating the defense on his 86-yard over the shoulder grab, he almost caught one over the middle for a big gain, but it was just tipped by the defender. His combo of moves and speed gave the Dolphins fits.
2010 Week 7 vs MIN (10 / 6 / 74 / 1 rec)
Jennings came through in the clutch on a night when Donald Driver was absent from the stat line. Jennings TD came off a pretty 14 yard pass from Aaron Rodgers in the 3rd quarter. The Packers big receiver played physical and showed good separation off the line of scrimmage, two of his trademarks and he should continue to be Aaron Rodgers primary target now that TE Jermichael Finley is out for the year.
2010 Week 8 vs NYJ (12 / 6 / 81 / 0 rec)
Jennings arguably had the best offensive performance out of anyone in the entire game on Sunday considering he was being covered (see: blanketed) by Darrelle Revis throughout the entire game. To be fair, Jennings got his in-between the twenties but Revis and the rest of the Jets defense managed to lock-it-down when it mattered near the red zone. This game was just another example of the fact that Greg Jennings is one of those special receivers in the game in that he's always going to get his regardless of who he is playing or who is covering him.
2010 Week 9 vs DAL (7 / 7 / 80 / 1 rec)
Jennings is really settling back into being a dominate performer for the Packers again. This was on display yet again in week 9. Jennings worked out of the slot and occasionally at flanker catching passes on a variety of routes and looks. His TD this week came on a short underneath route from 8 yards out. He has been quite hot over the past 4 weeks and looks the part of an elite option at this point in the season.
2010 Week 11 vs MIN (9 / 7 / 152 / 3 rec)
Jennings made a lot of his first opportunity, bringing in a tough deep ball along the sideline. He bobbled it a bit but held on, and then managed to pick up a good chunk of yardage after the catch. Jennings' first touchdown was a smart play, as he broke away from the coverage in the end zone while Rodgers scrambled and found him at the exact moment that he made the break. His second score was the result of a nice move he made after a catch on a simple comeback route. After he beat his man, there was no one even close to him as he basically jogged another 30 yards to the end zone. Despite the huge day for Jennings, the third score was still a bit of a surprise as the Packers were starting to play conservatively, protecting their lead, when Rodgers aired it out once more and found him in the end zone one more time.
2010 Week 12 vs ATL (8 / 5 / 119 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings' hot streak continued as the Packers had to pass for most of this contest. Jennings' best play came on a flea flicker from Rodgers as he stayed alive for his quarterback along the sideline and bailed him out with a nice run after catch to get the Packers offense back on track. Jennings made a couple of other nice catches, including a comeback route that was executed to perfection.
2010 Week 13 vs SF (7 / 6 / 122 / 2 rec)
Was open all day and Rodgers had no problem getting him the ball. Since week 6 Jennings has been the #2 WR in fantasy football and over the last 3 weeks he is #1 overall. Kudos to anyone that went out and grabbed this guy when his value was low early in the year. It seems like he is 100% healthy and on the same page as his QB at all times. It doesn't hurt that there is note threat anymore to take away his chances. And with Driver being injured and some inexperience behind him, it seems logical that Jennings should be putting on this show right now. There is no reason owners should expect a dip in the weeks to come.
2010 Week 14 vs DET (8 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec)
Jennings was targeted as usual, but a combination of missed opportunity and a tough defense led to a mediocre line. He seemed to be a little unfocused early in the game, as he made an absolutely brutal play on a perfectly thrown ball. Rodgers got it to him in stride, over his shoulder, and as the ball popped in and out of his hands - and directly into the hands of the defender, who sped away with it untouched - Jennings failed to even notice as he simply slowed down as if the play was over. In the second half his woes continued, with Matt Flynn at the helm, as he had narrow misses on two catchable balls (not easy ones, but definitely catchable). One was a diving catch on the turf in the end zone that was ruled incomplete and went unchallenged. Late in the 3rd quarter, Flynn finally did find him open downfield for a 32 yard gain, but that would end up being his biggest gain all day.
2010 Week 15 vs NE (5 / 4 / 30 / 1 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Jennings was roughed up and double-teamed most all of the game vs. the Patriots. His 1st target of the game came out of the slot for a short TD reception when he outmaneuvered the nickleback. He will look to get back on track next week when Aaron Rodgers returns to the lineup.
2010 Week 16 vs NYG (10 / 7 / 142 / 0 rec)
Jennings completely abused any Giants DB that attempted to cover him and was in synch with his QB for the entire game. The Giants frequently gave Jennings a cushion at the line of scrimmage, making slants or curls an easy pass completion as the Giants wanted to prevent the big play. Jennings had numerous big plays including a lot of yards after short catches plays due to the off coverage technique by the Giants. Jennings was too quick to be tackled after he caught the football and forced the Giants to play closer to the line. Later in the game, the Packers took advantage of this and hit Jennings deep down the field on numerous occasions. Jennings has the quickness to hit the short routes and the long speed to get behind the defense and is a true nightmare to contend with. The Giants never were able to figure out how to stop Jennings and he made them pay time after time.
2010 Week 17 vs CHI (9 / 4 / 97 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings was explosive and made a huge impact in this game, producing the 20+ yard plays that were so rare in this tight, close to the vest style of game. Jennings ran really crisp routes, stretched the field well and came up with some huge catches thanks to pinpoint passes from his quarterback.
2010 Week 18 vs PHI (5 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Jennings was merely a decoy in this contest, only making one reception for a paltry 8 yards. With the heavy pressure by the Eagles, Jennings was unable to get open on deep routes and so didn't have a big impact on the box score.
2010 Week 19 vs ATL (10 / 8 / 101 / 0 rec)
Jennings speed was too much for any cornerback that the Falcons tried to put on him. The deep crossing patterns got the Falcons all game long, and Jennings found himself wide open. Usually Jennings gets a few deep balls in the game, but the intermediate passing game worked so well, that the Packers didn't need to send them deep.
2010 Week 20 vs CHI (11 / 8 / 130 / 0 rec)
Jennings was a force to be reckoned with, as the Bears simply could not cover the Packers #1 WR. He had five receptions over 20 yards, including three in the first quarter alone, and both of the Packers first two offensive plays of the game. As Aaron Rodgers game got off track, Jennings production tapered off, but by no fault of his own. He has established himself as one of the premier WRs in the game.
2010 Week 21 vs PIT (0 / 4 / 64 / 2 rec)
Jennings didn't get open deep, but he did catch two touchdowns, once absorbing a big hit from Troy Polamalu and crossing up Polamalu in the end zone on the other. One of Jennings other two catches was a huge 31-yard gain on third-and-long right after the Steelers had pulled back within three points. The Steelers paid extra attention to Jennings on defense and he still burned them at multiple key junctures during the game.
2009 Week 1 vs CHI (8 / 6 / 106 / 1 rec)
Greg Jennings is still Aaron Rodgers' favorite target, but the Bears knew this as well and put their best options for coverage on him in Week 1. Jennings was held in check most of the game right up until the final two minutes where he was matched up with Nathan Vasher, a corner who is not known well for excelling in one-on-one coverage. Jennings beat Vasher easily and raced down the field, catching a deep ball in stride for a 50 yard touchdown to put the Packers up for good. He added a short catch for a two-point play to seal the victory with under two minutes to play. Jennings and the Packers face Pittsburgh next week without Troy Polamalu, so look for Jennings to work the middle of the field.
2009 Week 2 vs CIN (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jennings dropped an easy first down catch during the team's first series, then was mostly invisible for the rest of the first half. Rodgers targeted him more often in the second half, but the Bengal pass rush kept Aaron Rodgers from getting in sync with Jennings on the longer developing routes.
2009 Week 3 vs STL (3 / 2 / 103 / 0 rec)
Jennings was invisible for much of the game, but made an impact when called upon. He was the main deep option for the Packers, and he showed why, beating the secondary twice for 50+ yard gains.
2009 Week 4 vs MIN (6 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings was the forgotten man of the evening for the Packers. He had a couple key third and fourth down receptions early in the game to keep the Packers moving, and had a nice reception just before the half when the Packers were trying to get a quick score with under a minute to play, but was quiet for the second half of the game. He was targeted once on the Packer final drive but was well covered and the ball fell incomplete.
2009 Week 6 vs DET (8 / 6 / 64 / 0 rec)
Jennings had a another solid game for the Packers in week 6 catching 6 passes for 64 yards. The highlight of his production came on a stellar one-handed catch over the middle on an overthrown ball by Aaron Rodgers. One has to wonder just how much damage Jennings would have done today if Rodgers would have been given more time to find him downfield. He was open at will throughout the game thanks to the Lions LB's stepping up and leaving the DB's out to dry. Jennings remains a WR1 in all leagues.
2009 Week 7 vs CLE (8 / 5 / 52 / 0 rec)
Jennings was targeted eight times by Aaron Rodgers. His completions were mostly on short slant and in routes. He was able to gain separation easily on the Browns' cornerbacks. While he did get open downfield on a couple of plays, Rodgers had already made a decision to throw a shorter route.
2009 Week 8 vs MIN (12 / 8 / 88 / 1 rec)
Jennings had his best fantasy day of the season, one-handed catching a TD even though he had a defender draped all over him. Like Driver, Jennings got most of his targets on short timing routes that gave him a chance to create after the catch. His one deep target from Rodgers was off, and into double coverage, but Jennings hands and moves in the open field were as good as ever, and he is set up for a top 10-15 second half as long as the Packers have to lean pass heavy.
2009 Week 9 vs TB (10 / 5 / 61 / 0 rec)
Jennings got a couple of unsuccessful deep targets (one overthrown and another on target, but deflected for an INT), and he did his typical damage on short routes and good moves and energy after the catch. He also adjusted perfectly to a back shoulder throw by Rodgers to show off their chemistry. Jennings hasn't been getting his normal big plays because of Rodgers lack of time to throw and sometimes erratic arm. Take solace in the fact that this kind of game is representing his floor halfway into the season.
2009 Week 10 vs DAL (7 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)
Jennings had another muted effort this week thanks the porous Green Bay O-line not giving Rodgers enough time to find him. He was held in check throughout the game making a handful of short catches. Jennings was Rodgers favorite target this week, leading the team with 7. He looks good at this point, but is merely limited by not getting found downfield often.
2009 Week 11 vs SF (7 / 5 / 126 / 1 rec)
Jennings owners finally got their big day just as they might have been ready to give up on him. He caught a pass in stride in the second quarter, made a move that caused two defenders to run into each other, and then ran away from a defender after they made a feeble attempt to grab Jennings on the run. He also got a step deep on the sidelines and Rodgers hit him in stride for another big gainer while the offense was clicking in the first half. Jennings also threw a downfield block to help spring Ryan Grant's biggest run of the day. Obviously, Jennings is showing no ill effects from the knee injury that caused him to miss some snaps last week, and he should be a strong WR2 going forward.
2009 Week 12 vs DET (6 / 4 / 53 / 0 rec)
Jennings took a backseat to fellow WR Donald Driver this week. However when Jennings was called upon he was outstanding. He torched the Lions on a slant route for a 33 yard gain in the 2nd quarter, weaving his way through would be tacklers. Jennings finished with 53 yards total. Despite his rollercoaster season up to this point, he is still on pace for 1,000 yards.
2009 Week 13 vs BAL (10 / 6 / 77 / 0 rec)
Jennings night started out terribly. He seemed to be giving half-effort and dropped an easy catch on a slant that he used to turn into big gains. His night heated up when he drew a long pass interference penalty (one of five the Ravens committed), and he caught a handful of short to intermediate timing passes to bulk up his stat line as the game went on. He also drew a second interference call.
2009 Week 14 vs CHI (5 / 3 / 56 / 0 rec)
Jennings found open space downfield and at the sidelines to make a few nice gains with sticky hands catches, but his hands let him down on a perfectly-thrown deep ball from Rodgers early that Jennings could not secure all the way to the ground. He did grab the two-point conversion to give the Packers a seven-point lead late, and he is getting back on track heading into the matchup against the beleaguered Steelers secondary.
2009 Week 15 vs PIT (11 / 5 / 118 / 1 rec)
Jennings had the longest play of the day with an 83-yard catch and run that was thrown in the perfect spot by Rodgers. Jennings glanced off of Tyrone Carter's weak tackle attempt and used his speed to take it the rest of the way for the TD. Otherwise, Jennings only caught short timing throws, but he ran very hard after the catch to grind out every yard he could. He's worth trusting next week against the Seattle secondary.
2009 Week 16 vs SEA (7 / 4 / 111 / 0 rec)
Jennings caught a perfect deep catch on sideline - making it look easy - and followed up with a hitch play that he then took to the three yard line, for a 24 yard gain. He had two deep passes thrown to him that were close but no cigar. Jennings is so smooth - he catches and runs without breaking stride, and does it with such ease. He topped 100 yards in the first half.
2009 Week 17 vs ARI (6 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Jennings started the game with a 29 yard pass interference penalty which gave the ball to the Packers at the ARI 1-yard line, setting up a Ryan Grant score on the Packers opening drive. Rodgers took a couple shots deep to Jennings, but none of them came to fruition as he was tightly covered, even with Arizona's star CB, Rodgers-Cromartie, exiting the game early in the first quarter after sustaining an injury. The Packers really didn't need to utilize Jennings' big play ability in this contest as they found alternative scoring and yardage sources.
2009 Week 18 vs ARI (12 / 8 / 130 / 1 rec)
Jennings catch in stride between the hashes got the Packers sleeping giant offense woke up, and when they fell behind by 21 early in the third quarter, he stepped up big again. Jennings caught an out that Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie tried to jump and bumbled and stumbled his way inside the five-yard line. He then finished the drive with a one-handed stab of a back shoulder throw in the end zone that has to be seen to be believed. Jennings had a massive statistical day, but it could have been even bigger if Rodgers had hit him when he was open deep in overtime. His 2009 numbers might be considered disappointing, but his talent is still top notch, making him a player to target as a value pick in the 3rd/4th round next season.
2008 Week 1 vs MIN (5 / 5 / 91 / 0 rec)
Jennings was a big factor in the win for the Packers. He was a common target for QB Aaron Rodgers and pulled in a key 66 yard catch in the first half.
2008 Week 2 vs DET (10 / 6 / 167 / 0 rec)
Jennings was clearly QB Aaron Rodgers' favored target in this game as the strong armed QB repeatedly sought him out on long passes downfield. Jennings seemed to have little difficulty getting open against the Lions DBs and hauled in two separate passes for 60+ yards. On the first of these he found a hole downfield and then danced in circles to avoid Lion DB after Lion DB, even if, ultimately, he ended up not adding many yards after the catch. On the second of his long receptions, Jennings took a mid-range pass and raced down the right sideline, outrunning all but one defender.
2008 Week 3 vs DAL (10 / 8 / 115 / 0 rec)
WR Greg Jennings continues to perform as the top wide receiver for the Packers. Jennings had another 100 yard receiving game but like all of the Packers receivers he was held without a score.
2008 Week 4 vs TB (11 / 6 / 109 / 2 rec)
Jennings got going quickly in this game as he took his first target for a 25 yard touchdown. His second score came near the end of the third quarter when he caught a pass from QB Aaron Rodgers that went for a 48 yard touchdown. Jennings finished the day leading all Packers' pass catchers in targets, catches and yards.
2008 Week 5 vs ATL (9 / 4 / 87 / 1 rec)
Jennings only had one catch over the first two quarters, but his three grabs in the second half went for pickups of 20, 25, and 36 yards respectively and also included his third touchdown of the year. The receiver was wide open on a play that would have went for a big gain in the second half, but the ball was under thrown by QB Aaron Rodgers. Jennings showed good effort on his final catch of the game when he made the reception, broke a tackle, and sprinted for a gain of 36 yards.
2008 Week 6 vs SEA (7 / 5 / 84 / 1 rec)
Greg Jennings was the leading receiver even though was not targeted the most. Aaron Rodgers hooked up with Jennings on a 45 yard TD to start the second half and Green Bay never looked back after that. Jennings was the target on long balls but there were only two in this game. Jennings was able to create a few yards after catching the ball.
2008 Week 7 vs IND (4 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
WR Greg Jennings only reeled in three catches in the victory. QB Aaron Rodgers spread the ball around to eight receivers and the entire team was firing on all cylinders so there was not much more that Jennings could do in the blowout. Jennings also dropped a ball in the first half but the Colts' defender was whistled for defensive pass interference.
2008 Week 9 vs TEN (11 / 3 / 79 / 0 rec)
Jennings was inconsistent, but made a couple of big plays in the clutch. He only had three catches on the day, one of which was began as a simple button hook pattern that he was able to turn into a huge 52 yard gain. He narrowly missed a fourth catch that was called out of bounds (he was arguably pushed out, but the call was not challenged), which would have put him closer to a hundred yards in total.
2008 Week 10 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings had a great touchdown pass called back on an offensive line penalty. It could have been a great day with better offensive line play. Jennings was not targeted very often because the plays did not have time to develop. Jennings was on many deep patterns and most of time the ball was dumped or Aaron Rodgers was on the ground before he was ten yards down the field.
2008 Week 11 vs CHI (6 / 5 / 64 / 1 rec)
Jennings' first reception of the game was a short slanting route into the end zone, good for a three yard touchdown. He also had a 29 yard reception in the third quarter, his longest of the afternoon. Jennings finished with 64 yards and a touchdown, good enough to be the Packers' leading receiver.
2008 Week 12 vs NO (15 / 8 / 101 / 1 rec)
WR Greg Jennings had a strong game in the defeat. He ran his routes well and was targeted by QB Aaron Rodgers frequently. Rodgers missed Jennings for a sure touchdown in the first quarter but repeatedly went back to the dependable young receiver. Jennings took a big hit in the fourth quarter from Saints' DB Roman Harper but miraculously managed to hang onto the football. Jennings was the target of Rodgers' first interception. He had fallen during the play but it likely did not matter as CB Jason David read the pass well and jumped the route.
2008 Week 13 vs CAR (13 / 8 / 91 / 1 rec)
The Panthers tried to keep Greg Jennings out of the endzone but that ended at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Jennings was targeted a couple times deep but most of his receptions were on outs or slants. His longest play of the day was the 21 yard touchdown on busted coverage that Jennings took advantage. It was a very nice read by Aaron Rodgers and Jennings and gave Green Bay their first lead of the game. Jennings had to work hard for his 91 yards.
2008 Week 14 vs HOU (7 / 2 / 74 / 0 rec)
Jennings was targeted a team high seven times. He had receptions of 63 and 11 yards.
2008 Week 15 vs JAX (9 / 3 / 22 / 1 rec)
Jennings ran his routes well, and got open on most of the times he was targeted. However, he and Rodgers only connected on shorter passes, including one for a touchdown. Jennings got open deep three times, but was overthrown twice, although in Rodgers' defense he was under a strong pass rush on one of those pass attempts. Jennings' displayed good speed and route running to get open a few yards outside of the end zone on two of the deep patterns he ran, but he and Rodgers could not connect.
2008 Week 16 vs CHI (9 / 6 / 38 / 1 rec)
Jennings had a nice first half as he caught five passes for 36 yards including a short touchdown pass in the second quarter for the Packers first score of the game. Jennings wasn't targeted deep down the field in this game and caught all his passes short or medium range routes. The Bears secondary completely took Jennings out of the game in the second half by holding him to one catch for two yards.
2008 Week 17 vs DET (10 / 5 / 101 / 0 rec)
Jennings led the Packers in targets with ten, and finished with five receptions for 101 yards. While he was held out of the end zone, Jennings made big plays down field like he has all year long. He was targeted twice on third downs, and three of his catches resulted in Green Bay first downs.
2007 Week 3 vs SD (7 / 4 / 82 / 1 rec)
In his first game action of the season, Jennings certainly didn't disappoint. He was targeted very early on a deep ball in the end zone that fell incomplete. Jennings was also targeted on an ill-advised pass in the end zone that was nearly intercepted. He then made a handful of receptions here and there over the next three quarters, but really saved his best for last. On a game-saving drive, Jennings streaked over the middle on a slant and hauled in a laser pass from Brett Favre between two defenders. Jennings took off untouched down the right side of the field for the 57 yard score (the eventual game-winner). The score gave Favre the 420th touchdown pass of his career, which tied Dan Marino on the all-time list.
2007 Week 4 vs MIN (6 / 3 / 43 / 1 rec)
Jennings, like a handful Packers receivers, had many opportunities in the passing game today. Jennings was the most frequently targeted receiver deeper than ten yards, including his 16 yard touchdown. In addition to his six official targets, he was also the intended receiver on Brett Favre's first pass 60+ yards downfield that was intercepted by Darren Sharper. This play was called back on a defensive illegal contact penalty.
2007 Week 5 vs CHI (4 / 4 / 83 / 1 rec)
Jennings looks all came in the first half, as he left the game temporarily with a shoulder injury, and wasn't targeted again upon his return. He was Favre's preferred deep target, with catches of 28 and 41 yards, the latter of which was a second quarter touchdown.
2007 Week 6 vs WAS (11 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)
Jennings led all Packers receivers with 12 targets. Despite the high number of passes thrown his way, he was only able to haul in three passes. Jennings did draw a pass interference penalty on CB Carlos Rogers and was the intended receiver on Favre's second interception.
2007 Week 8 vs DEN (8 / 6 / 141 / 1 rec)
The first two passes intended for him fell incomplete, but Jennings would go on to grab the next six targets that came his way. On the night he averaged over 23 per catch and set season highs for both receptions and yards. His 82 yard touchdown catch to end the game will be remembered for a long time by the Green Bay Packers faithful.
2007 Week 9 vs KC (5 / 3 / 85 / 2 rec)
Greg Jennings provided the deep threat in the Packers arsenal. Both of his touchdown catches came on plays where he was wide open. The first score came on a pass over the middle where he caught the ball inside the ten and put some moves on Chiefs defenders to score. The second score, which proved to be the game winner, came when he out ran the defensive backs on a post pattern. Jennings did have one bad play where he broke off a route that led to Favre's first interception on the opening Packers drive.
2007 Week 10 vs MIN (6 / 4 / 63 / 0 rec)
Jennings was targeted almost as much as team leader Donald Driver on the afternoon, including two deep chances, but Jennings was able to haul in only one of those two chances. Like Driver, Jennings also had what could have been a touchdown go through his hands. Jennings finished with numbers identical to Driver for the game with four catches for 63 yards.
2007 Week 11 vs CAR (8 / 7 / 48 / 1 rec)
Jennings caught seven passes for 48 yards and one touchdown. The touchdown pass was from four yards out. Jennings had one other catch that got the ball inside the Carolina 20 yard line.
2007 Week 12 vs DET (7 / 5 / 60 / 2 rec)
With another big game, this one a two touchdown performance, Jennings' stat line again begs the question of who is truly the top receiving option for Green Bay. While Donald Driver outgained Jennings in targets (13-8), receptions (10-5), and yards (147-60), it was Jennings who was rewarded with the red zone looks and the touchdown advantage (2-0). In fact, despite Driver's heavy involvement in the passing game, Jennings fantasy point total likely exceeds Driver's in nearly all league setups. In addition to the two touchdowns, Jennings was also thrown to in the end zone on an incompletion in the beginning of the fourth quarter, while Driver was never looked to in the end zone. Still, despite this sounding like a negative comparison between the two players, think of it more in terms of a beneficial setup for both players. Each is able to focus on what he does best: Driver moves the ball slowly but effectively down the field and over the middle, while Jennings can hit for a quick strike from anywhere on the field and use his big body to get open in small spaces in the red zone. And with a quarterback chucking it up 41 times and a known commodity drawing the opposition's coverage on the other side of the field, both Jennings and Driver are in prime positions for success.
2007 Week 13 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 87 / 1 rec)
Jennings made his first catch on a short pass and then made a great move and took it 43 yards late in the second quarter. He caught a pass on the Dallas two yard line and was able to scramble into the end zone for an 11 yard touchdown catch. He finished the half with three catches for 63 yards. He caught a 15 yard pass for a first down early in the fourth quarter and would add another catch for nine yards late in the game. Jennings led the Packers with 87 yards receiving.
2007 Week 14 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 100 / 1 rec)
Jennings was pretty quiet early on in this game. On his first target on Green Bay's second drive, he drew a pass interference penalty on CB Nnamdi Asomugha. Jennings' next target came in the second quarter, but the pass fell incomplete on a short pass down by the goal line. His first reception went for a 20 yard gain on a third and 18 play that took place in the third quarter. Jennings' only other grab went for an 80 yard touchdown. On the play, he made a leaping catch and jogged into the end zone after his defender fell down.
2007 Week 15 vs STL (6 / 4 / 66 / 1 rec)
Jennings' day got of to a bad start as his first catch went for a loss of three yards. His second and third receptions were more productive as he took the Brett Favre passes for gains of 14 and 11 yards respectively. Jennings' last catch of the game went for a 44 yard touchdown grab which was his 12th scoring reception of the year. He was the intended target on both of Favre's interceptions.
2007 Week 16 vs CHI (5 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Jennings opportunities were limited. Brett Favre's struggles with the conditions, and the teams general lack of ability to move the ball prevented as many passing attempts as the Packers usually enjoy. The Packers also did not try to stretch the field with deep passes, limited Jennings chances for a big play.
2007 Week 19 vs SEA (8 / 6 / 71 / 2 rec)
Greg Jennings caught six passes for 71 yards, and two touchdowns on eight targets from Brett Favre. Jennings started the Packers scoring when he beat single coverage down the left side, and Favre got it to him for the 15 yard score. After a Ryan Grant touchdown tied the game, Favre again hit Jennings for a two yard touchdown in the early second quarter to take the lead. The Packers were not forced to pass the ball often, but when they did it seemed as though Favre favors Jennings for big plays, and around the end zone.
2007 Week 20 vs NYG (0 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Jennings only caught one of his five targets for 14 yards. He drew cornerback Sam Madison in coverage, and Madison did a great job shutting down the dynamic second year pro. One of Jennings' targets was in the endzone, but Brett Favre over threw him.
2006 Week 1 vs CHI (6 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
The rookie sensation from Western Michigan caught his first NFL pass in the fourth quarter. He is listed as the number two WR on the Packers' depth chart, but was targeted less than Ferguson in this game.
2006 Week 2 vs NO (12 / 6 / 67 / 1 rec)
Jennings had several deep targets from Favre but each time the pass was overthrown. He scored his first NFL touchdown on a 22 yard strike from Favre to give Green Bay the early lead. Jennings made an outstanding inside out move, turning the defender around and Favre dropped the pass to Jennings, in stride, for the easy score. He finished with six receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown. Favre appears to have confidence in Jennings, throwing his way in clutch situations and late in the game.
2006 Week 3 vs DET (5 / 3 / 101 / 1 rec)
Jennings scored his second touchdown of his career, which also happened to be the 400th career touchdown pass by QB Brett Favre. Jennings caught a pass going across the middle of the field, made Detroit miss several tackles, and ran the rest of the 75 yards for the touchdown in the first quarter. He later added two more catches for 16 and ten yards each before halftime, both going for first downs.
2006 Week 4 vs PHI (10 / 5 / 86 / 0 rec)
Jennings appeared to be Favre's receiver of choice when big plays were called for. Jennings had almost as many targets as Driver and did more with them in this game. He caught a 22 yard pass to give the Packers a first down on their second drive and had a 20 yard reception for a first down later in the half. Both drives ended in field goals. Jennings saw less action in the second half but managed to make a 30 yard reception on the Packer's opening drive of the half. Jennings was grabbed by his shirt at the goal line which prevented him catching an Aaron Rodgers pass in garbage time.
2006 Week 5 vs STL (10 / 5 / 105 / 1 rec)
Jennings was the star receiver today for Brett Favre. He pulled in a beautiful deep ball on the second quarter's first play. He caught the ball with a safety closing fast, took the big hit and held on to the ball for a 38 yard pick-up. He was targeted deep often and reeled in a 46 yard catch for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
2006 Week 7 vs MIA (4 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
He had only one catch in the game, but it was a nice 14 yard grab late in the second quarter for a first down. He was hit hard on the play and bent back awkwardly. He appeared to hurt his ankle. He had his ankle x-rayed at half time and did not return to the game. This was a big loss considering how thin the Packers were at the wide receiver position.
2006 Week 9 vs BUF (5 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Jennings recovered from an ankle injury in the Miami game (that caused him to miss last week's game against Arizona) to play in this game. He made one remarkable catch along the sideline at the end of the first half on a ball tipped by the defender where he managed to catch and keep both feet in bounds. However, he re-aggravated his ankle injury and he left the game soon after.
2006 Week 10 vs MIN (5 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)
Jennings started this game despite dealing with a sprained ankle. Jennings had a big catch in the third quarter for 12 yards and tossed a lateral pass to Donald Driver who took it another 30 yards and brought the ball to the Minnesota 15 yard line. He also had an important 14 yard reception on a third down play in the third quarter to keep a drive alive.
2006 Week 11 vs NE (10 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
The sensational rookie received plenty of looks, but only caught one pass for 26 yards. He seemed able to get open easy enough, but Favre and Rodgers couldn't get the ball to him.
2006 Week 12 vs SEA (8 / 6 / 50 / 0 rec)
Jennings looked healthy after his recent injury issues and played the whole game. He caught Favre's first pass of the game for a six yard gain. His second target was caught and he did well to evade two tacklers to turn the play into a 17 yard gain and a first down. He again gave a good effort on the Packers' opening drive of the second half when converting a third down to keep the drive alive. Jennings caught six of his eight targets for a total of 50 yards and four first downs. He was targeted almost as often as Driver, but most of the targets were short passes.
2006 Week 13 vs NYJ (6 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Jennings was the first wide receiver to catch a pass today, and even while the Packers were forced to pass throughout the second half Jennings was not very effective.
2006 Week 14 vs SF (11 / 5 / 50 / 0 rec)
Tying Donald Driver for targets in both the first and second half despite briefly leaving the game with an injury, Jennings did not quite put up the same numbers as his teammate. Despite this, he played a solid game, and nearly had a touchdown as he took a short pass at the eight yard line down to the one, setting up Ahman Green's touchdown. Additionally, he had a thirty three yard reception overturned on a first quarter challenge, showing that he came down out of bounds at the opponents five yard line.
2006 Week 15 vs DET (2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Greg Jennings continues to fade. He has struggled since suffering a high ankle sprain injury, and only managed to catch one pass for five yards.
2006 Week 16 vs MIN (11 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Jennings saw extensive action in the game, but could do almost nothing with it. At times, it appeared as if his head really wasn't in the game. He dropped the first pass he saw all game, a deep ball that could have been caught. Later, he dropped a pass over the middle. And twice he was the target of Favre passes that were intercepted by the Vikings. Obviously, Favre must accept some blame for throwing the passes, but it was clear on both occasions that Jennings simply ran the wrong route. Favre had a microphone on him during the telecast, and at one point told his coach that Jennings stopped running (with the implication being that he didn't finish his route). After the second interception, Jennings was not thrown to again.
