Well, with Ponder still recovering from a concussion it appears Cassel will be under center Week 14 at Baltimore. That of course could bode very well for Jennings, who has been a disappointing Fantasy option in 2013.
Wide receivers have had moderate success against Baltimore. They are averaging 20.8 Fantasy points and 158.3 receiving yards per week. Wide receivers have totaled 12 touchdowns in 12 games.
The game following Jennings' two-touchdown performance he totaled just six catches for 34 yards. However, he went up against a very good Carolina defense and was still targeted 10 times by Cassel, so Cassel definitely likes throwing his way. That does help Jennings' Fantasy value for Week 14, but it's still a gamble to start him since he's surpassed 10 Fantasy points just twice this season and the Ravens aren't exactly the easiest matchup.
Jennings had a quiet first half, totaling one catch for 2 yards on two targets. However, he came alive in the second half after Matt Cassel replaced Christian Ponder, who suffered a concussion late in the second quarter.
One play before his touchdown catch, Jennings was targeted on an 8-yard touchdown pass, but it fell incomplete because of good defensive coverage. Luckily, one play later Jennings had his 8-yard touchdown catch. Matt Cassel rolled right after being flushed from the pocket, he heaved a pass toward the corner of the end zone, and Jennings was able to haul it in and get two feet down before going out of bounds.
Jennings also had a key 17-yard catch in overtime, which helped set up Blair Walsh's game-winning field goal. The Vikings are back in action Week 14 at Baltimore.
Jennings has faced Chicago just once with Minnesota, and it has been one of his best performances in what has turned into a disappointing first year with the Vikings. Jennings had five catches for 84 yards in a 31-30 loss Week 2. The five catches and 84 yards were the second-highest totals Jennings has had in a game this season.
Wide receivers have had moderate success against the Bears. They have averaged 142.3 receiving yards and 20.4 Fantasy points per week through 11 games. Wide receivers have also totaled 11 touchdowns against Chicago.
The Vikings don't exactly have a great passing offense. The Vikings are averaging 207 passing yards per game (25th). They also have just 11 passing touchdowns, which is tied for the third-fewest amount in the NFL.
Fantasy owners shouldn't be relying on Jennings Week 13. If you can afford to look toward alternative options, then considering doing so.
Jennings had no catches or targets in the first half, and he finished with just two catches for 29 yards in a 26-all tie. Jennings' first catch didn't come until the 9:49 mark of the third quarter. He was targeted three times.
The Vikings are back in action Week 13 vs. Chicago.
