I wanted to get ppls thoughts on jennings this yr... I am thinking he is a sell high candidate... all the books have him in the 2nd tier of wrs.. but since finley arrived he has neen very inconsistent. He was playing the deep threat roll and finley ate up yrds. Does anyone think his role will change or should he be shipped??

Number 1 WR in a pass heavy offense with one of the top QBs at the helm...I like him. Definitely would say he's an upper echelon receiver. I don't think he will face very many double teams because teams know Rodgers will spread it around if they do.

I am biased because I went to WMU when he was there, but I still think he is in for a great year. GB throws a ton and he is a legit #1 WR

Ok, but wasnt he a #1 last yr and the HC decided to use him strickly as a deep threat clearing out for Finely? That is until finley got injured and Jennings started emanding the ball. I mean last yr was his 1st double digit TD season in a while.. if I recall correctly. in addition, jordy came on and driver is healthy.. I think his numbers will resemble Desean Jackson... Not very consistant but big games here and there...

I like Greg Jennings in 2011, but I'm not sure if he can replicate his 2010 line.

I don't know if you can count on Greg Jennings for double digit TDs with JerMichael Finley back. Aaron Rodgers loves throwing to Finley. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Finley has come into camp in terrific shape, having lost 15 pounds. Finley is still very young (24) and all signs are pointing to him making a full recovery from his 2010 injury. Finley tweeted that his knee was "10000000000000%" healthy. Finley is a weapon, and I think the numbers will reflect that this year.

However, I don't think Greg Jennings' touchdowns will completely disappear. I see him missing double digits, but not by much. Even if he grabs ~8 TDs this year, he is still a solid WR1. It is important to remember that Jennings has tallied 3 consecutive years with 1000 yards or more. That trend should continue. I have Greg Jennings a little bit outside of my top 5 wideouts, and he should be drafted with confidence.

Driver's pretty much done, just sayin.

Every yr ppl discount driver and in the end he has 1000 yrd...lol ... I just wonder if the #2 wr on a team where they spread the ball arround can be a # 1. Also let's not forget mccarty is one of those coaches that shuffles his wrs in and out similar to how many are doing with rbs...lol

Except last year, where he managed a measly 565 yards on 51 catches in 15 games for a yards/catch avg of 11.1 - the lowest in his career if you don't count the 1999 season in which he caught three passes. And the three seasons prior to that he just barely broke 1,000 yards, 1061, 1012, and 1048. I've always like Donald Driver, but he's pretty much on the way out at 36 years old.
