After flying under the radar through the first three weeks of the season, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings exploded in London in Week 4, catching three balls for 92 yards and two touchdowns to power his team to a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy owners who benched Jennings in Week 4 will be kicking themselves all week long and should consider capitalizing on Jennings' big game by swapping the wideout for a more productive star.

The bad news for Jennings owners who are not looking to make a trade moving forward is the fact that the wide receiver is still relying on the big play to make an impact, per ESPN Stats & Info on Twitter:

While Jennings is clearly loving the fact that Matt Cassel is under center for the Vikings instead of Christian Ponder, it remains to be seen which of the two quarterbacks will be throwing to the veteran wideout the rest of the season.

Minnesota will be on a bye in Week 5 and will take on a tough Carolina Panthers defense in Week 6. Fortunately for fantasy owners, Jennings will have three straight opportunities to light it up against the New York Giants, Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys

Therefore, owners might want to consider keeping Jennings on the bench over the next two weeks before dusting him off in Week 7.
