According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Minnesota Vikings have signed wide receiver Greg Jennings to a 5-year contract.

The former Green Bay Packer spent Thursday night and all day Friday meeting with Vikings officials.

Jennings, 29, missed eight game last season due to a variety of injuries including groin and knee injuries.

During his seven year NFL career, Jennings has 425 receptions, 6,537 receiving yards and 53 touchdowns.

Fantasy Football: 2012 Kicker Projections

My only recommendation for drafting your fantasy kicker is to wait until the last round of your draft. Predicting the success of a kicker during the preseason is close to impossible. Use your last pick on a kicker and if that guy doesn’t work out, drop him and pick up another one.       

The list below is projections based on standard scoring* fantasy leagues and risk and upside.

Fantasy Football: 2012 D/ST Projections

One of the most difficult things about fantasy football is predicting which defense/special teams are going to produce the most fantasy points during the season. The best approach to drafting a defense/special teams is to use a late-round pick on one. And if that defense/special team doesn’t work out, drop it and pick up a new one.

Fantasy Football: 2012 Tight End Projections

This year’s tight end fantasy draft class includes two elite players who could easily serve as your team’s top fantasy receiver. The rest of the tight end class is filled with good, but not great talent.    
   
According to ESPN's average draft position (ADP) data, once the top two tight ends are off the board, owners are waiting three rounds before drafting the number three ranked tight end. That type of statistical disparity should tell you to wait on a tight end if you miss out on one of the top two guys.

1) Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints
There were high hopes from Graham entering 2011. But nobody expected him to explode like he did. His 11 touchdowns and 1,310 receiving yards made him a fantasy superstar this season. When you're Drew Brees' top target, you get a spot in the top 20. Projected fantasy points: 196
