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.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries played a role in Adams' struggles, but with Jordy Nelson returning, even a healthy Adams will be no more than a bench option in fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy still weighs "in the 240s," according to a source. Lacy did P90X workouts in the offseason and turned to basketball and boxing, too. It was reported back in April that Lacy had already lost 15 to 18 pounds. Head coach Mike McCarthy characterized Lacy's condition as "so far, so good." "Eddie will be fine," McCarthy said. "I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on."
Fantasy Tip: Expectations are down for Lacy after he disappointed owners in 2015. With better conditioning and stamina coming into 2016, he could be an excellent value at running back as a high-end RB2 in fantasy drafts.

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.
