Greg Jennings will miss Week 5 - [Full Article]

Packers WR Greg Jennings has been ruled out for Week 5.

Jennings injured his groin during the first week of the season against the 49ers. Earlier in the week, he said he was “extremely frustrated” with the injury and had hoped to get back on the field this weekend, according to ProFootballTalk.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jennings missed Week 2 and most of Week 4. In those games, James Jones registered two catches for -1 yard in Week 2 and 5-56-2 in Week 4. Combined, he played 84.1% of his team's snaps and saw 14.9% of his team's targets. Meanwhile, Randall Cobb had two touches for 48 yards in Week 2, and posted 7-66 in Week 4. Cobb played 38.8% of his team's snaps and saw 13.5% of his team's targets.

Jones looks to be the better start, but he is very capable of putting up a goose egg even when everything points to the game. He should be a good start against the Colts in Week 5. Randall Cobb is flex-worthy in most formats.
