Jennings reinjured his groin Sunday, as coach Mike McCarthy
characterized the setback as a “flare up,” noting he is back to where he was a
couple weeks ago.
This could mean Jennings will be unavailable for Sunday’s
contest against the Indianapolis Colts. His groin injury caused the 29-year-old
to take himself out of a game against the San Francisco 49ers and he then didn’t
suit up for Green Bay’s week 3 matchup with the Chicago Bears.
Entering the year as one of Aaron Rodgers
’ favorite targets,
Jennings’ groin injury
has limited him to 12 catches for 78 yards and one
touchdown so far this season. McCarthy said it’s possible the team could elect
to sit the wide receiver for a week or two in order to allow him to fully heal.

TE Greg Olsen (Carolina)
Percent owned (ESPN): 16.5%
I was surprised to see the Olsen was owned in less than 25% of all leagues. Through 4 games, he has 20 catches for 256 yards and a score and has surpassed 5 fantasy points (standard) in 3 of 4 games, including 23 total in his last 2. You can do a lot worse with a low end TE1 or a bye week filler.
WR James Jones (Green Bay)
