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.

Sat, 03 Jan 2015 09:03:13 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (personal) is not participating in practice Saturday, Jan. 3.

Packers | Jordy Nelson excused from practice

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 13:13:19 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson was excused from practice for personal reasons Friday, Jan. 2.

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.

Packers | Jordy Nelson had only two catches

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 10:13:50 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson entered the Week 5 game leading the NFL in catches and receiving yards, but he had only two catches (one for a 66-yard touchdown) against the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers weren't forced to throw much after building a big lead early against the Vikings. Despite the relatively quiet night for Nelson, he should continue to be a strong play on a weekly basis, especially in PPR leagues like FantasyScore.

Packers | Jordy Nelson piling up targets

Sat, 27 Sep 2014 20:56:38 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson's 12.3 targets per game are the most in the NFL after three weeks, and WR Randall Cobb ranks second on the team with 7.0 targets per game.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb has padded his point total this season by catching three touchdowns, but Nelson is clearly Aaron Rodgers' go-to weapon right now. Cobb will cost $7,4000 (14.8% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 4 and Nelson will cost $8,300 (16.6% of cap), but Nelson could be worth the extra cost because of the hefty amount of targets he has been seeing.

Packers | Jordy Nelson looks to stay hot

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 18:09:58 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson will be facing the Chicago Bears in Week 4. In last season's regular season finale against Chicago, Nelson went for 10 receptions and 161 yards, and he has at least four receptions and 67 yards in the past four meetings with the Bears.

Fantasy Tip: One thing that stands out for fantasy owners, Nelson has found the end zone just twice in nine meetings with the Bears, and that happened in the same game in Week 16 of the 2011 season. Due to his lack of career touchdowns against Chicago, he might be considered a little overpriced at $8300 in FantasyScore (or 16.6 percent of the salary cap).
