Not top 5. Ten, maybe. If you are getting yards, it doesn't mean that you'll get many close yards looks. Yes, he's got some looks, but 0TDs for 3 games, that's tough.

Marshall
TO
Wayne
Fitz

That's my top 4. Then, maybe AJ, Housh(offense turning the corner against supposedly tough NYG defense).

See, I don't get how everybody automatically ranks AJ above Jennings.

1) AJ has never had more than 8 tds in a single season, and is only averaging 5tds/year in his career
2) AJ plays in one of the toughest divisions in football (IND, TEN, and JAX are ranked 1st, 2nd and 10th in points allowed to fantasy WRs)
3) Jennings had 12 tds last year alone
4) Jennings has a much much better QB
5) He has a better WR opposite (to draw coverage)
6) Most importantly, Jennings plays in a much easier division against the pass (DET, CHI, and MIN are ranked 28th, 24th, and 19th vs fantasy WRs)

Dude will probably get 3 tds in his 2 games v the Lions alone.

I can see making arguments for Housh if CIN's offense continues to turn it around, but not AJ.

Rodgers game tape is starting to get longer... defenses will start adjusting.

All of the points I made above are still true. Teams had 17 years of game tape on Favre, and Jennings still tore it up.

After 4 weeks, Jennings has around 120 yards and 0.5 ts/game, he is ranked #3 overall among WRs in my league.
Andre Johnson is averaging 60 yards and 0 tds/game, and is ranked 50th among WRs (although if we assumes his average and give him a 4th game, he would probably move up 10-25 spots to 35th.

AJ definitely has some catching up to do, and I don't think he is going to catch Jennings (I own both BTW).

Who becomes the new GB starter if Rodgers is out? Brohm or that Flynn dude?

Jennings owners may want to consider selling him

The point being that teams who gain more and more tape on a player will beging identifying tendencies and weaknesses and will adjust to exploit those. It is also up to the QB to find those same tendencies and weaknesses and work them out of his game. Some can and some can't. Take Derek Anderson, tore it up first half of last year and has struggled since about week 9 or 10 of last year. I guess there was a reason the Ravens cut him. Rodgers may or may not work it out. His completion % has gone down each game so far. Keep in mind also that almost everyone has feasted on Dallas and Detroits secondary (who Rodgers had his best games against). He'll get to play Detroit again but he better pull it together here in the next 3 weeks. He's got a stretch of games after the bye that could go badly.

I still think AJ is going to get going. 3 road games against 3 tough teams early. Now he's got 4 home games in a row against teams he should devour. I'd be concerned if he doesn't have some good games here in the next month. Glad to see Schaub played well as well.

Flynn came in the game. Brohm would give them the best chance passing IMO, but flynn would have less turnovers most likely

Yea here it is from ESPN

"He will rehab today and tomorrow, and we'll have a better idea on Wednesday," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said in a Monday news conference. "We will make sure[b] both Matt [Flynn] and Aaron are ready to play. Wednesday's important."[/b]

good luck with Flynn
