Packers | Jordy Nelson practices Wednesday

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 14:50:49 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip) practiced Wednesday, June 10, for the first time since undergoing hip surgery earlier this offseason. Nelson participated in individual drills during organized team activities. After practice, Nelson said he's right where he wants to be in the recovery process and that he'll be ready for training camp July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson seems to be right on schedule and the fact that he is now practicing is encouraging. It would still be smart to monitor his status leading up to training camp, but it looks like he'll be good to go for the start of the season. He's a WR1 when he's at full health.

Packers | Jordy Nelson not part of OTAs

Thu, 28 May 2015 16:21:12 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 28, as he continues to recover from offseason hip surgery. A timetable for his return has not been disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: There's no reason for Nelson to rush back from the surgery, especially when we're still in May and OTAs have just begun. Assuming he makes a full recovery from the surgery, Nelson should be considered a WR1 in 2015.

Packers | Jordy Nelson undergoes surgery

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 09:18:15 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip) underwent hip surgery this offseason and is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson probably will miss some offseason workouts but should be fine for training camp. Nelson ranked fourth in the league in receiving yards this past season with 1,519 yards and also recorded 13 touchdowns during the season. Nelson should be a No. 1 wide receiver for owners in drafts next season if the hip is not a factor.

Packers | Quiet game for Jordy Nelson

Sun, 11 Jan 2015 13:57:15 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson finished with just two catches on five targets for 22 yards in a 26-21 win over the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys seemed determined to prevent Nelson from beating them down the field, and as a result, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb were both targeted 11 times. Nelson remains a big-play threat, but he could be in for another tough outing next week with the Packers set to face the stingy secondary of the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is fully healthy, and he'll be ready for the team's divisional round playoff game next weekend. Despite the fact that we don't know Green Bay's opponent yet, rest assured that Nelson will be a strong FantasyScore roster candidate next Sunday.

Packers | Jordy Nelson has knack for big plays

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 19:20:45 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson had seven touchdown catches of at least 40 yards this season, including four of at least 60 yards.

Fantasy Tip: His ability to produce big plays makes him the type of high-upside fantasy option that can help separate you from the competition at FantasyScore.

Packers | GB struggled with physical play

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 14:54:08 -0800

The Green Bay Packers were beaten by the Buffalo Bills in Week 15, and the Bills excelled by playing physical with the Packers receivers and disrupting the routes of WRs Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. The Bills had just one sack on Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and three hits, but the lack of blitzing allowed Buffalo's corners to play more aggressively on the outside. "They were physical outside with our receivers and were able to get away with it all day," Rodgers said. "We had some chances, missed on them."

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers' dud likely cost many a chance at a fantasyfootball title. If you're playing at FantasyScore, though, he has an excellent chance to bounce back and get you a win in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their poor defense.
