Packers | Jordy Nelson tweaked other knee

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:28:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said he was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list because he tweaked his other knee, and not his knee that required season-ending surgery last year. Nelson added Week 1 is not in jeopardy, but he does not know when he will be ready to practice during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: On the surface, this sounds like a positive, but if Nelson is limited during training camp because both knees aren't 100%, it's a concern. Over the long haul, Nelson projects to finish as a No. 1 fantasy wide receiver, but he might not be the safest option in the first two rounds of drafts, either. The upside and floor are both there, but it's likely ill-advised to expect a 2014 output from the 31-year-old veteran. This is a situation to monitor over the coming weeks.

Packers | Jordy Nelson on PUP

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 08:39:53 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 26. Head coach Mike McCarthy said there are no long-term concerns with Nelson, and he's likely to be activated at some point in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Now 31, questions linger if he can return to the 98-1,519-13 monster he was in 2014. He's still in the WR1 category, but there are a few players with more upside and stability.

Packers | Some Packers may not practice

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 11:19:27 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) and TE Jared Cook (foot) and others may initially be held out of training camp practices.

Fantasy Tip: It would behoove the Packers to take it easy with Nelson, who is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament. If Nelson doesn't suffer any setbacks, though, he's primed for another WR1 season. Meanwhile, it's still unclear if Cook will be starting at tight end for Green Bay. Richard Rodgers could take that spot, but neither should be pursued as a fantasy starter.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 20:41:20 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) appears to be ahead of the curve in his rehabilitation, and Nelson said he would have been able to play in the Super Bowl last year had the Packers qualified.

Fantasy Tip: Any player coming off a major knee injury carries some risk, but Nelson has too much upside as Aaron Rodgers' go-to weapon to slip past the second round.

Packers | Jordy Nelson unclear for start of camp

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 20:21:43 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said in June that he was ready, but it remains to be seen whether head coach Mike McCarthy and team doctors will give Nelson the green light when training camp opens July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is on the other side of 30 and making his way back from a major injury, so there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding Nelson. Pre-injury he was a Top 10 fantasy option, and his Average Draft Position (ADP) has been in the middle of the second round in most formats. But there is a lot of risk, so plan to have plenty of depth on hand.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers, others excused

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:23:25 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and other select veterans have been excused from mandatory minicamp this week by head coach Mike McCarthy. WRs Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson were also included in that group. "The approach is different than the past," McCarthy said. "So, it's obviously tailored toward the younger players." QB Brett Hundley will get most of the work with what is left of the No. 1 offense.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers are playing in the Hall of Fame Game this preseason, so their training camp will begin a week earlier in July than it did a year ago. McCarthy wants to make sure his veterans are well rested. Rodgers remains an elite fantasy QB worth taking in the early rounds, especially since he'll have a healthy Nelson to throw to in 2016.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ready for games

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 13:50:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said if there was a game Sunday, June 5, then he would be playing in it. Nelson will not participate in any 11-on-11 drills until training camp just to be safe while he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Green Bay doesn't want to risk another serious loss before the season even starts. Nelson should be brought along cautiously through the rest of the offseason and the preseason. If he can avoid any setbacks, he's worth consideration as a low-end WR1.

Packers | Jordy Nelson runs route on sideline

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:13:51 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) did not participate in practice during organized team activities Thursday, June 2, but he did run a route on the sideline for QB Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is expected to be ready for training camp and checks out as a low-end No. 1 receiver. While it is worth monitoring his progress leading into the season after missing all of 2015, grabbing tosses from Rodgers as the big-play threat in a high-end offense significantly lessens concerns.

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.
