Packers fantasy focus

After recommending last week not to give up on Greg Jennings as a fantasy player you can depend on, the Packers' receiver made us look like we knew what we were talking about with his best performance so far this season — a six-catch, 133-yard effort highlighted by an early 86-yard TD reception.

With TE Jermichael Finley now officially removed from the offensive mix after being placed on injured reserve, Jennings returns to his role as the primary weapon in the passing game. In addition to operating this Sunday evening against a banged-up Vikings secondary, Jennings also could have an advantage on what could be a slippery Lambeau Field track if the forecast for a rainy weekend holds up.

Jennings was held in check in the first game against Minnesota last season in Week Four, catching three passes for 31 yards. But four weeks later, he did a lot better, catching seven passes for 81 yards and a touchdown.
