Packers | Jordy Nelson dominating in the red zone

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 15:08:54 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson leads the NFL in receptions (11) and receiving touchdowns (7) in the red zone this season.

Fantasy Tip: It's just another reason to love owning Nelson in fantasy, being regularly depended on as much as anyone when his top-flight offense is inside the red zone. Nelson has also been getting more comfortable as the season has progressed, which was especially evident in Green Bay's most recent affair. In Week 10, the 31-year-old registered season highs in targets (18), receptions (12) and receiving yards (126) opposite the Titans.

Packers | Jordy Nelson posts 94 yards, TD

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 21:52:40 -0700

Packers | Jordy Nelson limited to one catch

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 21:38:56 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson finished with one catch for nine yards on four targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson was targeted on a couple of patented deep balls off play-action, but a four-target effort on a night in which Aaron Rodgers attempted 56 passes is definitely cause for concern for his owners. The touchdowns that carried Nelson's value through the first four weeks of the season have dried up, and he has only 10 catches for 115 yards on 24 targets over the last three games. He's likely to draw shadow coverage in Week 8 from Atlanta Falcons top corner Desmond Trufant, which could mean he will turn in another disappointing effort next week.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 22:59:14 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Nelson has been up and down this season in terms of yardage, but Sunday's game marked the first game in five tries he hasn't found the end zone. He remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the Chicago Bears Thursday night.
