Fantasy Football 2012 Rankings: Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Greg Jennings
Greg Jennings has turned into one of the favorite targets for Aaron Rodgers over the last couple of years as the pair give the Green Bay Packers one of the top quarterback-wide receiver duos in the NFL. Despite falling just short of the 1,000-yard mark last year, owners would be wise to select Jennings if available in the early rounds for the fantasy football 2012 season–especially after the emergence of Jordy Nelson.
The only reason why Jennings fell short of the 1,000-yard mark in 2011 was because he missed the final three games of the regular season and assuming he stays healthy–there’s no reason why the wideout shouldn’t bounce back and cross the milestone once again in 2012. From 2008-10, Jennings caught 224 passes for 3,670 yards to go along with 25 touchdowns and caught 20 passes of 40+ yards–so it’s no surprise to see him at No. 4 on the wide receiver list.
As mentioned earlier, the emergence of Nelson–who caught 68 passes for 1,263 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2011–could actually benefit Jennings in the passing game, but there’s a good chance he’ll receive extra coverage on most plays considering how much of a threat he is as a No. 1 wideout. Jennings will most likely be selected in the second or third round in most leagues as he’ll be considered the top wideout on just about any fantasy team that lands him.
Plus, Jennings is lucky enough to have one of the league’s top quarterbacks in Rodgers throwing him the ball–so the potential to put up big numbers on a weekly basis is always going to be there.
