Packers | Jordy Nelson wore down

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 07:20:25 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson admitted he had heavy legs in Week 1 in which he played 54 of the 64 offensive plays. He also said he didn't have to clear any mental hurdles during the course of the game, never overthinking the fact that he was playing on a surgically repaired knee.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson had six grabs for 32 yards and a score in Week 1, and it's normal for someone to miss a season and have conditioning to do. He's a high-end WR2 option in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Packers | No limits for Jordy Nelson

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 16:33:08 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will not have any restrictions during the team's Week 1 game, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson did not play during the preseason but appears ready for a full workload against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He should be one of the main targets in the passing game and is a fine starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Packers | Jordy Nelson declares himself ready

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 20:53:07 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said he is "ready to go" for Week 1 during an interview Thursday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson missed all of last season and didn't appear in the preseason, and while the 31-year-old offers WR1 potential as Aaron Rodgers' top target, be careful not to reach for him before the third round. There is no guarantee he will return to his 2014 form.

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 15:53:49 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) fully participated in practice Monday, Aug. 29. Nelson said he does not expect to play in the final preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson should be ready for the start of the regular season and will be a main part of the team's passing game. He can be a No. 1 wide receiver in all fantasy leagues and likely will be selected in the first two or three rounds of drafts.

Packers | Jordy Nelson remains on limited duty

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 18:57:41 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson worked with QB Aaron Rodgers in practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, but Nelson was once again held out of competitive, 11-on-11 periods. He might not play in any preseason games, and he and Rodgers might only have a handful of practices together before the Week 1 opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, Rodgers believes it will be enough. "Because I know exactly where he's going to be," Rodgers said. "That's the beauty of us playing together for a long time."

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is being held out to preserve him and not test his injury too much before the games count for real. He is expected to be 100 percent for the regular season and fantasy owners can depend upon him as a WR1 in most formats. However, with a player coming off a major injury it's a good idea to load up with plenty of depth at the position in case there are setbacks.

Packers | No brace for Jordy Nelson

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 15:27:49 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) was not wearing a brace on his surgically repaired knee during practice Monday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson appears to be on track for the start of the regular season and likely will be a big part of the passing game in 2016. Owners in most leagues should consider Nelson as a low-end No. 1 receiver that likely will selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts.

Packers | Jordy Nelson to do drills

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 09:35:32 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will do individual drills Monday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: The question about Nelson is he's 31 and coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He's a low-end WR1 in fantasy that could return to fantasy dominance despite his age.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson to do work

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 11:24:32 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will work one-on-one as much as they can in practice Monday, Aug. 22, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It will be Nelson's first practice of the offseason and he will be limited to individual drills. It is still unclear whether or not Nelson will play this preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Finally, Nelson is practicing. He has some catching up to do, but he's already familiar with the offense and should be focused on getting to full health before Week 1. Even coming off a serious injury, Nelson is a fringe WR1 with optimal value in standard formats.

Packers | Jordy Nelson does warm-ups in full pads

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 17:39:20 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) went through pregame warm-ups in full pads prior to the team's preseason contest Thursday, August 18, versus the Oakland Raiders. He participated in individual position drills, even receiving passes against defensive backs. It was his first time wearing pads on a football field since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the second preseason game last year.

Fantasy Tip: This is very encouraging news for the star receiver, as it should ensure that he's ready to go for Week 1. As long as that's the case, Nelson can be drafted early on as a WR1, with potential to do big things in 2016. In his last season two years ago, the 31-year-old hauled in career highs of 98 receptions for 1,519 yards to go with 13 touchdowns.

Packers | Jordy Nelson won't play Thursday

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 19:15:12 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will be held out of the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18, against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is expected to be ready for the regular season and he will be a bona fide WR1 in all fantasy formats if he can return to his pre-injury form. So far there is no reason to believe he won't be 100 percent by Week 1.
