2012 pros and Cons

(+) Has the best QB in the business throwing him perfect passes every game


(+) With Jordy Nelson’s emergence, Jennings should have a better season this year than last year due to the attention Nelson will receive


(+) Despite Nelson’s emergence, Jennings is still the most talented receiver on a team with a pass-happy QB


(+) Nine TDs last year shows that Rodgers continues to trust him in the Red-Zone


(+) He’s still only 28-years old (29 on September 21st), so he’s in the prime of his career


(–) With so many weapons on the team and Rodgers loving to spread the love around, some weeks Jennings ends up a bit of the odd man out


(–) Jennings is no longer the deep threat now that Nelson is a starter


(–) Not really a PPR guy. It may be hard to believe, but 80 receptions is the most he's ever had in a season

2009 Review

greg jennings will bounce back this season


All in all, you’d have to consider 2009 somewhat of a down-year for Greg Jennings, though most of that assessment is due to the expectations on him being so high (not Ricky Williams high).  Most would say that Vincent Jackson had a great year, and rightfully so, yet Jennings had the same amount of receptions as he did and only 50 less yards.  The biggest differential between the two came in Greg’s TD total, which was a huge disappointment to say the least.  4 TDs is completely unacceptable from a player of his caliber, especially when you consider the numbers Aaron Rodgers put up.  Granted, the ageless Donald Driver played like a man possessed, and Jermichael Finley and James Jones both stepped their games up considerably, but that’s no excuse for Jennings putting up less TDs on the year than all three of them.  His six 100-yard games, however, were the most in his career, and helped to ease the pain for fantasy owners who were anticipating close to WR1 numbers.

2010 Fantasy Outlook

Forget about 2009.  It’s over, it’s gone, see ya.  2010 will turn out to be Jennings’ best season to date, and you can take that one to the bank.  His skill-level sits right up there with the best in the league, and talent like that almost always wins out in the end.  As soon as the Pack realized how bad of an offensive line they had last year, they changed their game-plan to get the receivers running shorter, quicker routes, which benefitted Jennings greatly.  His second half of the season in 2009 was a lot closer to what we’re likely to see this year, and even then, there’s still room for improvement.  Aaron Rodgers is one of the best QBs in the game, and the Packers just love to pass the ball, so really, what’s not to like about Jennings’ potential?  Nothing.  #85 should crack the top-10 fantasy WRs this year and get up into double-digit TDs once again.


~ He’s the #1 guy on a pass-heavy team.  You do the math


~ Rodgers is one of the best QBs in the game.  Again, you do the math


~ The talent surrounding him will leave him in single-coverage at all times, but could also take a few targets away as well

Contract

In June of ’09, Jennings signed a four-year, $26.885 million contract.  The cap-friendly deal contained $16.25 million guaranteed, including an $11.25 million signing bonus and Jennings' first-year base salary.  Another $3 million is available through incentives, including $25,000 per game played, $25,000 each season if he plays in 12 games and the Packers make the playoffs, and escalators maxing out at $700,000 in 2010, $1 million in 2011, and $1.25 million in 2012 based on playing time and team performance.  Someone certainly did their homework for this one… Here’s how this bad boy shakes out:


2010 - $1.85 million (+ $300,000 workout bonus)


2011 - $2.7 million (+ $300,000 workout bonus)


2012 - $3.885 million (+ $300,000 workout bonus)


2013 - Free Agent


 


Such a humble character, not about the money at all...

Injury Report

Green

Missed a couple of tilts in 2007 due to a hammy, but other than that, he's good to go

Jennings expects Patterson to be the focus

Greg Jennings watched Cordarrelle Patterson come on strong at the end of his rookie season, and now in year two the veteran expects the explosive Patterson to become the true focal point of the Vikings’ passing game.

(Jennings)
"I wanted him to know that, coming in, the expectation of you is no longer “rookie.” It’s “You gotta go. We saw what you can do. We’re gonna showcase this.” For me, it was making sure that he understands that he has to be a professional. He has to be a pro’s pro when he steps foot in this building, because we’re expecting [him] to give us what we’ve seen you put out there."

Norv Turner spoke recently about his desire to “modernize” his offense. To me, that’s code for “I need to find more ways to get the ball into the hands of Cordarrelle Patterson.”

Pyro's take: This confirms what we have believed here at Pyro all off-season, that Cordarrell Patterson is going to blow up. This also singles that Greg Jennings is on board with this, and is expecting to take a secondary role to the second year receiver.

Jennings had 804 yards on 68 catches with four touchdowns last season. While Patterson will be the focus, the veteran will have a chance to improve on those numbers with Norv Turner calling the shots.

Norv Turner on Greg Jennings role

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner expressed his thoughts on Greg Jennings and his role in the new offense.

Q: What’s going to be the biggest difference for a guy like Greg Jennings who has only played in a West Coast offense?
A: The first thing is the communication and I think that’s what got everyone. It’s a new language and I always tell them if you go to a foreign country you figure out you better learn this language real fast or you can’t go buy dinner. They’ve done a great job of learning this and as we’ve put the system in, we’ve started in over the last couple of weeks using some of our code words and that makes it much easier but to me you have to learn the system before you can learn the code words. I think it’s harder for a guy like Greg than it is Cordarrelle because Greg has been in the same system and it’s engrained in his mind where some of the younger guys they weren’t in it that long.

Q: Does Jennings then get used differently in this system?
A: There’s so much of this league people take ideas from each other and they see something that works and they use it. There are some similarities but I do believe the way we teach it tends to be a little different, the things we emphasize are different and again when I say that it’s not necessarily that I say it’s better, it’s what we believe in and what I’ve been taught and what I’ve grown up with through my coaching career. It’s what you believe in and what you teach and the guys that have really bought in to it and learned it and played in the system, as I’ve said, have had great success.

Pyro's take: This does not sound like good news for Greg Jennings. Obviously, he has had a difficult time picking up Turner's offense. I do believe that Jennings is going to be used differently than he has in the past, but the first thing he needs to do is learn the system, it will be up to him and how much he wants to change in this point of his career. If he can grasp it, then he could have a great year, as he is the type of receiver that can explode in this offense.

Jennings tweaks ankle but should be fine

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings had to leave the game for a small stretch after he tweaked his ankle against the Steelers on Sunday, but returned to lead the team in both yards and targets in the loss.

Pyro's take: Jennings has had a pretty weak fantasy year by his and owners standards, but is still tough to take out of your lineup with the way Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense is playing. He should again be played on your fantasy football team next week as the Packers take on a terrible Seattle pass D.

Greg Jennings dealing with knee contustion

According to Packers coach Mike McCarthy, wide receiver Greg Jennings is dealing with a knee contusion that may limit him in practice this week. He is not, however, expected to miss the game next week against the 49ers.

Pyro's take: Jennings hasn't come close to what was expected of him before the season started. He is currently on pace for under 1,000 yards and just 4 TDs after averaging over 1,100 yards and 10.5 TDs the past two years. He is, however, still a WR3, and maybe a low-end WR2 for your fantasy football team going forward.

Jennings left game with dirt in his eye

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings left the game against the Browns on Sunday because he got dirt in his eye.

Pyro's take: This is obviously nothing to worry about. Jennings hasn't busted out yet this season, but he's starting to show signs of it coming. Keep starting him on your fantasy football squad as he's too talented not to put up the numbers.

Greg Jennings active on Sunday

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings (hip) is active for the game against the Browns today and will make the start.

Pyro's take: There really wasn't any doubt that Jennings would play, but if you took him out of your fantasy football lineup for fear he wouldn't go, get him back in immediately against the 1-5 Cleveland Steamers.

Jennings limited at practice Friday

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings (hip) was limited at practice on Friday after missing all of Thursday's practice. He's listed as probable on the team injury report and will play on Sunday.

Pyro's take: Make sure you fit Jennings into your fantasy football lineup this weekend as the Packers play one of the worst pass D's in the league in Cleveland.

Greg Jennings misses Thursday practice

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings missed practice on Thursday with a hip injury.

Pyro's take: This is new, but nothing to be concerned about. Jennings will be just fine according to coach Mike McCarthy and must be in your fantasy football lineup this weekend as the Pack play the Browns.

Packers to get back to dink 'n dunk game

With the talent the Packers have at wide receiver, along with the troubles they've had along the offensive line, quarterback Aaron Rodgers will resort back to throwing the short, quick pass and let his receivers do the work from there.

Pyro's take: This sort of game suits the Packers well, especially for Rodgers, Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, and Ryan Grant. With the offensive line getting help off the bye week, look for each of these players fantasy football numbers to improve going forward.

Jennings comes back to practice in full Thursday

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings returned to fully participate in practice on Thursday and will start against the Bengals on Sunday.

Pyro's take: Jennings was just taking it easy with the wrist injury and is just fine going into this Sunday's match-up against Cinci. Start him at all costs.

Greg Jennings limited at practice on Wednesday

Green Bay Packers star wide receiver Greg Jennings was limited in practice Wednesday due to a sore wrist.

Jennings back at practice, cleared to play Week 1

Green Bay Packers WR Greg Jennings was back at practice Monday after sustaining a concussion during a preseason game back on August 28th. He also told the media that he was cleared to start Sunday night against the Bears.

Pyro's take: The Packers needed their star receiver healthy for this first game against the Bears, so they must be happy to have him cleared. Look for a big game out of Jennings as the Bears secondary is beat up and not that good to begin with.

Packers' WR Jennings knocked out of Friday's preseason game in Arizona

Jennings was knocked down and out for a few minutes during Friday's preseason game. He walked off the field on his own when he got up.

Pyro's take: We'll look forward to more info on this one. It could just be a minor concussion. Jennings is a top 6 WR this season.

Greg Jennings now knows how to be the best

Green Bay Packers' WR Greg Jennings spent two weeks in July working out at Larry Fitzgerald's invitation-only camp, where Jennings said Fitzgerald "took my whole mindset of working out to another level."

Pyro's take: Jennings has been one of the best receivers in the league for a few years now, but he said he's been working a lot harder now that he knows what it takes to be the absolute best in the game. It should show this year.
