Packers WR Greg Jennings '50-50' for Thursday vs. Bears

Dealing with a groin injury, a short week and a "doubtful" tag on the injury report, Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings @GregJennings is hopeful he'll see action Thursday against the Bears. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jennings is no better than "50-50" to do that, which is either optimistic or gloomy depending on one's angle.

Fantasy Analysis:

While it's a bummer in terms odf recovery time that the NFL schedule has Green Bay playing on Thursday, at least Jennings owners will know whether the stud receiver is good to go before making a lineup decision. If active, it would be tough to sit him when noting last season he caught nine passes for over 100 yards against the Bears - and he's just that good regardless. Of course, if your roster has another top 15-20 option with a viable matchup, ponder away. Should the Packers go with a wait and see approach - i.e. declaring Jennings inactive - then suddenly James Jones and Randall Cobb @rcobb18 have increased Week 2 value. Since the Packers plan on using Cobb in a variety of conventional and non-conventional scenarios, his long term value is best. However, as a standalone Week 2 play, the talented and always teasing Jones is the better bet as Jennings' direct replacement. Jennings owners with available roster space should add one of these backups just in case while everyone in 12 team or greater leagues can find room for the intriguing Cobb.
