Packers | Jordy Nelson taking things slow

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:44:16 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said his surgically repaired knee is fine, but he understands why the team is limiting his work during organized team activities. Nelson has been allowed to run, lift and perform all of the drills the trainers ask him to do. Nelson has been running routes on a side field during practices. He said he will need to regain his chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers once he is cleared to practice again.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson appears to be on track for the start of training camp and should be one of the main targets for Rodgers in 2016. He should be considered a No. 1 or No.2 wide receiver for owners in most leagues.

Packers | Jordy Nelson is on schedule

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:48:38 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is right on schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It's still unclear if Nelson will participate in organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson's timetable isn't crystal clear at this point, but it seems likely that he'll be ready to go by the time the 2016 season starts. He's the Packers' biggest deep threat and still worth drafting as a WR1.

Packers | Jordy Nelson takes part in workout

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 10:38:44 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) fully participated in offseason workouts Monday, April 18, and said that his next step will be running routes. It is not known if Nelson will be able to participate in organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is working his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and should be ready for the start of training camp. Nelson will see plenty of targets in 2016 and could be selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 09:12:56 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is doing well in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, and head coach Mike McCarthy said Nelson has been running.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers offense struggled mightily all year in the absence of Nelson last year. With him returning, they should improve, and Nelson should return to WR1 status for fantasy owners if he's completely healthy.

Packers | Jordy Nelson running routes soon?

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 20:15:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said he has had no setbacks in his rehabilitation from knee surgery, and he will find out in the next couple of weeks when he can begin running routes.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Nelson remains on track to be ready for the start of the 2016 season, he is worth drafting as a WR1.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 09:15:47 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last year.

"I'm not worried about him getting back to where he was. He's way ahead of schedule. I've already talked to him, with this fifth preseason game, about how we play him in the preseason. He'll work some in the OTAs, but I don't see him having any limitations come training camp," head coach Mike McCarthy said.

Fantasy Tip: The loss of Nelson hurt the Packers offense all year, and they were never able to click. His return should do wonders for the passing game, and it should help Aaron Rodgers bounce back as an elite QB1. Nelson, if fully healthy, is a legitimate WR1, especially in PPR leagues.

Packers | Jordy Nelson has resumed running

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 22:00:15 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) started to run recently and he is hopeful of being a full participant when training camp begins this summer. "I think Jordy will come back better than ever," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "Just like you knew he would, he's so far ahead with the rehab, he looks great. There's no reason to think he won't be as good as new."

Fantasy Tip: Nelson will be 31 next season, and coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, he is a risky fantasy pick at best. In past years he has gone in the early rounds, but let him be other people's risk that early. If he slips into the area of Round 6 through 8, he is worth a spot then if you have your less risky starters selected first.

Packers | Mike McCarthy talks Jordy Nelson absence

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 17:45:17 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson's absence throughout the season gave the Packers a lack of a big target down the field in 2015. Head coach Mike McCarthy lamented that disadvantage. "You look at the production of Jordy when he went inside… now you're dictating to the defense what coverage they can play to you," McCarthy said. "When you don't have that element or the element to complement that, you see what we saw this year."

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is an irreplaceable receiver who gives the Packers not only a big target, but a speedy downfield threat. Nelson is apparently ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation process, so he should be good to go for offseason activities and for next season as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. There's always risk in drafting a player coming off a serious injury, but Nelson should still be a low-end WR1 consideration.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 10:08:10 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from surgery on his knee, and he said he should be ready for training camp next summer. Nelson is coming to practice every day to help the Packers receivers, including WR Davante Adams, who caught just two passes for 14 yards despite being thrown at 11 times in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson should be good to go for the 2016 season, and he'll surely be a high fantasy draft pick despite missing all of the 2015 season. Adams ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) continues to be maddening for his fantasy owners, and he's impossible to predict on a week-to-week basis. He shouldn't be seen as anything more than a sizable gamble in a flex spot on FantasyScore right now.

Packers | Jordy Nelson placed on IR

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:39:33 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Randall Cobb and Davante Adams are now Aaron Rodgers' go-to wide receivers. Adams should be considered a WR2 with Cobb still in WR1 territory. If you're in a keeper league, feel free to put Nelson in your IR slot as well.
