|Jennings was on pace to set a career high in receptions, reach double digit touchdowns for the third time in five years (nine in 2008) and top 1,000 receiving yards for the fourth season in a row when he suffered a sprain knee in Week 14 that caused him to miss the rest of the regular season. While the timing of his injury was unfortunate and likely sank the fortunes of many of his fantasy owners, Jennings has remained injury free for most of his career, missing just eight games during his six years in the league. Although Jordy Nelson emerged as one of the league’s better receivers in 2011, Jennings remains the Packers most explosive playmaker at the position and the receiver opposing defensive coordinators are most focused on. While Jennings isn’t a typical diva receiver, it doesn’t hurt that he is entering a contract year. With Jennings, you get consistent production on a year over year basis as well as on a weekly basis as he topped double digit fantasy points in nine of the twelve full games he played last season. In two of the other three games, he put up 8 and 9 points. As fantasy wide receivers go, Jennings has plenty to offer. Consider him a mid-tier WR1 in 2012.
| Surgery for Dolphins WR DeVante Parker -- Fri Jun 5 10:27 am --|
Left foot injury puts rookie on the back burner
|Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker had left foot surgery this morning at Doctor's Hospital in Coral Gables.
He will not participate in the team's minicamp and will miss the start of training camp but will be ready for the start of the regular season, per a team source.
FF Today's Take: Parker's fantasy prospects for 2015 have taken a big hit. How much he's able to participate in camp will be key as it's typically difficult for rookie receivers to make a significant impact, especially when the position group is stacked like it is in Miami. Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and veteran Greg Jennings sit atop the depth chart. Parker is off the re-draft league board for now.
