Packers WR Greg Jennings 'expected to play'

According to ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings @GregJennings is "expected to play tonight vs Seattle." Jennings is dealing with a groin injury and did not play in Week 2. He had five receptions for 34 yards in the regular season opening game loss to San Francisco and has been limited in practice ever since. A final decision about his playing status will likely be made just before the game, but the early optimism that he will play is a good sign.

Fantasy Analysis:

Hopefully Jennings is sitting on your bench since relying on him in this game is a big risk. It's too early to doubt QB Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 and Green Bay's offensive firepower, but there's no evidence to suggest Jennings is anywhere near 100-percent. A groin injury can linger all season if not rested and taking only one game off may not be enough. Jennings could come out, run a few routes, and decide to shut it down for the evening. Fantasy owners will have to be patient and hope he produces sooner rather than later.
