Wide receiver Greg Jennings has been ruled out for Week 5 vs. Indianapolis.
Jennings is still bothered by his ailing groin, and could miss games beyond this week as well. James Jones and Randall Cobb get a boost in fantasy value in Jennings absence, with both worthy of consideration as a No. 3 WR or FLEX play.
