Jets | Teammates backing Geno Smith

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 11:03:10 -0700

New York Jets WR David Nelson said his teammates believe this is QB Geno Smith's team and that QB Michael Vick is seen as the backup. "For all of us, it's Geno's team," Nelson said. "And from what we've been told and what we've been working toward, it's Geno's team, and Mike's coming in to kind of (fill) a supporting role. If anything happens to Geno, we have a proven starter and a proven winner backing him up. That's the direction we're moving."

Jets | David Nelson, Greg Salas looking good

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 16:15:58 -0700

New York Jets WR David Nelson connected with QB Geno Smith a few times in practice Wednesday, June 18, and the two look to be developing some chemistry. WR Greg Salas also looked good in practice while making several catches, including one that would likely have been a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Chemistry this early in offseason workouts usually doesn't mean a whole lot, especially for receivers this far down the depth chart. Nelson is more fantasy noteworthy, but he's battling for duties as the team's third receiver.

Jets | Receiving corps is deep

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 13:17:00 -0700

New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg believes the team's receiving corps is extremely deep and has more than a handful of guys who can play at a real high level.

Fantasy Tip: Eric Decker is a potential WR3 and the only Jets' receiver to count on for weekly contributions. Jeremy Kerley, Stephen Hill and David Nelson will battle for targets behind Decker, but none are worth more than a late-round pick.

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 20:50:41 -0800

New York Jets WR David Nelson is ready to face the Buffalo Bills in Week 11. He was stung last April when he found out on Twitter that the Bills had no plans to make him a qualifying offer. "I'm out to prove this week they made a mistake," Nelson said Monday, Nov. 11. In other news, Nelson won an appeal for the $7,875 fine he received in October for unnecessary roughness against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Jets | More targets likely for Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 17:58:24 -0700

With New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) ruled out for the Week 8 game against the Cincinnti Bengals, WRs Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley (hamstring) and even David Nelson (hamstring) are likely to see more targets, as might TE Jeff Cumberland.

Fantasy Tip: Hill and Kerley are worth a look as a WR4 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, and Cumberland is a decent bye-week replacement if you primary option is off. However, you can mostly ignore Nelson for fantasy purposes.

Browns | WR assignments flexible

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 16:34:09 -0700

The Cleveland Browns won't always have WRs Josh Gordon and Greg Little line up on the outside with Davone Bess in the slot. In early workouts, they've been shifting spots to keep defenses guessing; all have run routes from the inside and outside. Gordon made some of his most dynamic plays last year from the slot. David Nelson (knee) will also be incorporated into this rotation once healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is an alluring fantasy WR3 in Norv Turner's offense under head coach Rob Chudzinski, but preseason hype will probably make the second-year snare a pricey middle-rounds commodity. He might meet expectations, though, thanks to his deep prowess and Turner's history with big-play wideouts. Little, Bess and Nelson might cap each others' ceiling for production, but they all could serve as solid fantasy depth.
