The Packers offense is gradually rounding into form, but their top option is “extremely frustrated” with his inability to get in on the action. Greg Jennings suited up last week against the Saints after missing week 2, but departed early (1 catch for 9 yards) after aggravating his nagging groin injury. The seven year pro is reportedly not optimistic about his chances to play this weekend against the Colts. James Jones was the beneficiary last week as he caught two touchdowns, but he was rarely targeted outside of the scores, and figures to have a very inconsistent role in the Packers high flying offense. Ideally for Packer nation, Jermichael Finley or Jordy Nelson would establish themselves as a chain moving option, but neither has stepped up thus far. Green Bay could bank on Cedric Benson more this week, as they should have no problems moving the ball. Aaron Rodgers will be just fine, as he is an elite talent that will make those around him better, so there is no need to downgrade him from a fantasy perspective. For owners of Jennings, don’t be afraid to make a trade while his value is still somewhat high. A groin injury is concerning for a player doesn’t possess elite physical attributes, and could linger for a good portion of the season. The potential of the injury staying present and the fact that Jennings is in a contract yea have me concerned. It was clear last week that he rushed recovery in an effort to produce (and presumably get paid in the future), a quality that comes with its fair share of risk.
