Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is curious how all the pieces will come together this year. After completing 79% of his passes with a 130.1 passer rating during the preseason, he has reason to be confident.

"Greg (Jennings) had a bigger role last year when [TE Jermichael Finley] went out," Rodgers said. "Greg started a little bit slow and ended up exploding with a 1,300-yard season, a Pro Bowl season. So he's a guy we want to step up and take a lead role. With J-Mike back, it will be interesting to see how defenses play us.

"If they try to double him or double Greg and play some sort of special coverage to take one of those two guys away, then Jordy (Nelson), James, Donald (Driver) and Randall need to win one-on-one battles."

Fantasy Impact: 

This could be a bit of bad news for Jennings owners if they were expecting a season similar to last year. With Finley back and poised for a monster season, Jennings' success will be based on how defenses decide to handle the Packers attack. We still rank Jennings in our top-10 among WRs, coming in at 9th, but it's something to keep in mind if you haven't drafted yet.
