It has taken months, but Greg Jennings is finally a factor in the Vikings passing game and for fantasy owners.
Wide Receivers to Add
Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota Vikings
We got one thing right last week, saying Jennings was going to be the better of the Vikings' two receivers. We didn't particularly like either as a start, despite the favorable matchup, though, and we were proven wrong. Both are viable starters in fantasy crunch time against a banged-up Bengals secondary that has given up five touchdown receptions to receivers in the past two weeks. Matt Cassel apparently has a lot more juice than we have given him credit for having.
Doug Baldwin, Seattle Seahawks
You can debate Golden Tate is the more intriguing talent, but Baldwin was more productive Sunday and he got more snaps than any Seahawks receiver, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. Baldwin faces a tough matchup, but you have to like Seattle at home as it plays to clinch the NFC's No. 1 seed.
Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu, Cincinnati Bengals
Andy Dalton is coming off a disappointing week, but one thing that has been consistent in a wacky year of fantasy football has been playing guys against the Vikings defense. Minnesota has been the second-worst team in fantasy against wide receivers, so both Jones and Sanu are sleepers to reach the end zone in Week 16.
Wide Receivers to Monitor
Andre Caldwell, Denver Broncos
You cannot consider him if Wes Welker is cleared to play, but Caldwell is coming off a two-touchdown performance when Welker was sidelined a week ago. Watch Welker's status and consider Caldwell off the scrap heap if you're real desperate in deep leagues.
Andre Holmes, Oakland Raiders
We haven't been big believers of him in this space, mostly because Rod Streater and perhaps Denarius Moore (shoulder) would be ahead of him in most weeks. Moore is back, but if Holmes is labeled a starter, you could consider him in a pinch. Holmes has had a good rapport with Matt McGloin, as most former scout-team tandems tend to. You still should start Streater and Moore over Holmes in standard leagues, if you're even digging that deep into the receiver pool.
Wide Receivers to Ignore
Robert Woods, Buffalo Bills
We should expect Stevie Johnson to be the Bills' most productive receiver in most games, so don't completely buy into Woods' five catches for 82 yards and a touchdown last week. Also, the Dolphins are a top-10 team in fantasy against wide receivers, allowing the fewest touchdown receptions to them this season (five).
Michael Preston, Tennessee Titans
When you have Kendall Wright, Nate Washington, Justin Hunter, Kenny Britt and Damian Williams ahead of you on the depth chart—not to mention Ryan Fitzpatrick as your quarterback—you have little chance to repeat a two-touchdown performance.
