Jordy Nelson was set to have a big season in 2015, but a torn ACL caused him to miss the entire season. In 2016 OTAs, Nelson is doing everything possible, but not at 100%. The goal is for Nelson to be ready to go full speed during the pre-season and ready for the first game of the regular season. There is nothing at this point that should stop fantasy football league managers from drafting Nelson in rounds 2 or 3 this season. If we look at his 2 year averages from 2013-14: 16 games played, 139 targets, 91.5 receptions, 1,416.5 receiving yards, and 10.5 TDs.
Nelson missed the entire 2015 season with an ACL injury, but his rehab is reportedly going well and he should be ready to roll as a high-end fantasy WR2 in 2016. The big concern for Nelson is age, he turns 31-years old this year.
Nelson has some question marks coming off ACL surgery at the age of 32, but we saw how badly Aaron Rodgers needed him last season, so his volume should be secure. Nelson's upside is much higher than this, but there is some risk involved. Thankfully, Rodgers can help him along, even if Nelson happens to have lost a step.
