Because of the quiet, steady way he goes about his business — both on and off the field — Greg Jennings has had a tendency to drift under the fantasy radar.
Truth be told, though, there are only a couple of pass catchers on the planet who can come close to matching the fourth-year Packers wideout when it comes to racking up big-play bonus points.
Picking up with Aaron Rodgers where he left off with Brett Favre, Jennings’ non-stop explosiveness has been hard to ignore the past two seasons. Actually, the Packers quickly recognized Jennings’ special skills three seasons ago, when the second-round pick out of Western Michigan became the franchise’s first rookie to start at wide receiver since Sterling Sharpe.
