Jordy Nelson was able to play against the Rams on Saturday night, but did not have a target in the game. He did have a touchdown from Aaron Rodgers called back on the second drive of the game due to a penalty. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The fact the Nelson was able to suit up and play is good news, considering he sat out of practice earlier in the week because of a hamstring injury. Nelson is having a great camp and is one of Aaron Rodgers favorite targets in an offense that should put up a ton of points.

Jordy Nelson returned to practice on Tuesday after missing Monday's practice with a hamstring injury. Nelson also did not play in the 20-16 loss to the Titans in the preseason opener. His status for the next preseason game against the Rams is uncertain. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: It sounds like Mike McCarthy is playing it safe with Nelson. It would not surprise me if he sat out this weekend’s preseason game against the Rams as a precautionary measure. If you have a draft this weekend, you should have zero reservations with taking Nelson as a number 1 wide receiver. In games in which Aaron Rodgers played last season, Nelson averaged just under 100 yards per game and caught 7 touchdowns.

Nelson misses practice with hamstring injury. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Mike McCarthy went on to say Nelson won't be out long, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Packers' essentially shut down Nelson for most of preseason as a precaution. With more 1st team reps available this should be the perfect stage for a younger player to jump out and really secure that coveted 3rd WR spot. Boykin is the incumbent, but nothing is secured. Keep an eye on Adams and Janis as the front runners to steal 1st team reps.

Packers wide receiver, Jordy Nelson, received a 4-year, $39 million contract extension over the weekend. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: This is good news for Packers fans. Jordy Nelson and Aaron Rodgers have been one of the most productive duos in football. And according to Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel, Nelson has been great in his first few practices. "Nelson made tough catch after tough catch, including a 40-yard touchdown reception from Aaron Rodgers during a no-huddle drill." Nelson is currently being drafted as the 7th wide receiver according to his ADP.

According to ESPN’s Rob Demoovsky, Jordy Nelson wants more money than the $30 million contract extension that Roddy White just received. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Jordy Nelson is coming into the final year of his contract. In most cases a player entering the final year of a contract is a good thing for fantasy owners. Over the last 3 seasons, Nelson has put up numbers worthy of a number one wide receiver, hauling in 15 touchdowns in the 2011 season which was good enough for third in the NFL, only behind Rob Gronkowski and Calvin Johnson. Last season he set career highs in both receptions and yards while hauling in 8 touchdowns.

Jordy is a machine and vastly underrated. Easily a top-10 option provided he stays healthy.
The Fake Football | Aug 20th
Nelson put up great numbers when Rodgers was healthy last season, ranking as the second best WR through the first 7 games. With a healthy Rodgers his ceiling remains top-5 easily.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 20th
Nelson has posted two 1,200-yard seasons and scored 30 touchdowns over the last three seasons. There is no longer any doubt that Nelson is the Packers’ top receiver, and he proved it in a year where he didn’t catch passes from quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the better part of eight games. Nelson’s coming off a season with career-highs in receptions (85) and yardage (1,314), numbers that arguably would have been higher had Rodgers stayed healthy. Without Rodgers last year Nelson averaged 63.0 yards per game with one score. With Rodgers those numbers ballooned to 101.3 yards per game and seven scores. The Packers will have their star quarterback healthy and ready to go this season, which should mean big things for Nelson, who will be in a contract year in 2014.

Has flypaper hands and a great QB -- a golden combination.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 19th
Randall Cobb's return will hurt Nelson's upside. He is a solid WR, but with a bit more capped upside he isn't a top 10 WR for 2014.
Yahoo! Sports | Aug 19th
GB going to shoot for break-neck pace on offense, which is great for a go-to guy like Jordy
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 19th
If QB Aaron Rodgers stays healthy, Nelson should approach the Top 5 fantasy receivers. Despite playing half of the 2013 season with Rodgers, he finished with 85 receptions for 1,314 yards and eight receiving touchdowns. Nelson recently signed a four-year contract extension, he should be a big part of the Packer passing game for years to come.
The New York Times | Aug 19th
Averaging 1288 yards, 76.5 grabs, and 7 TDs the last two full seasons he has turned in.
Fantasy Team Advice | Aug 18th
Nelson understandably struggled last season while Aaron Rodgers was out, but he still managed to finish as the 11th best fantasy receiver. As long as Rodgers stays healthy, Nelson is a essentially a lock for an outstanding season. He is Rodgers' favorite redzone target, and has more chemistry with Rodgers than any of the other Packers receivers.
Legion Report | Aug 16th
The Packers let Greg Jennings and James Jones go, but kept Nelson. Nelson deserves it, but it also shows how much they value the very talented Nelson in their receiving game. Nelson is a big reason why we have Rodgers ranked as the number 1 QB this season. GB’s schedule this year for Fantasy WR’s couldn’t get too much better – the Packers play 10 teams that ranked 18th or lower against Fantasy WR’s last season. This includes Detroit twice who ranked 30th in the NFL against WR’s giving up an average of 25.8 points per game and Minnesota twice who ranked 31st in the NFL against Fantasy WR’s giving up an average of 26.4 points per game to Fantasy WR’s. Along with this, the Packers still want a fast-paced high volume offense. The Nelson/Rodgers duo is still at the peak of its game – we value Nelson over Cobb in 2014.

Aside from all being talented receivers, those three wideouts share something specific in common — they are the only three wide receivers with a minimum of 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns over the past three seasons combined.

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Fantasy owners could be faced with the decision of who the more valuable wide receiver in Green Bay will be in 2014. Obviously both hold significant value, especially with Aaron Rodgers under center, but would you be better off
Breaking Football | Jul 7th
Jordy Nelson needs to get some respect in fantasy football. It’s true that his insane 15-touchdown season back in 2011 was hard to take in. It was a joyous run for fantasy owners, but no one thought for a second Nelson was the second coming of Calvin Johnson or could do that in back to back seasons. Still, he put up over 700 receiving yards and seven scores the following season, despite miss...
