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.
He finished with 85 receptions for 1,179 yards and 7 touchdowns. The catches were his best total since his last season in Arizona in 2009, his yards were his best since 2006 and he last scored seven touchdowns in 2010. He had 6 games with double digits in standard Fantasy points and 8 games with at least 9 standard fantasy points.

Seems destined for WR1 numbers in his potential last season with Rodgers
Will flourish with Crabtree in lineup, rapport with Kap is apparent
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
Boldin is going to be another year older and with Crabtree likely to play the entire season and the addition of WR Stevie Johnson, I see Boldin's numbers declining as a result.
  
Addison Witt
Fantasy Team Advice
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.
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
Boldin had a huge year, but will be a bit more capped with Crabtree's full return. He will still find 1,000 yards and near double digit TD's so he is a nice target in drafts.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
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.
Boldin was recently kicked out of practice for fighting with 49ers CB Darryl Morris. Despite this, the 33 year old is coming off a 1179 yard performance while seeing 129 Targets. Expect these numbers to drastically decrease with WR Michael Crabtree back to full health. Along with this, the 49ers Offense Ran the ball a 3rd Most 505 times and Passed the ball a league Low 417 times in 2014.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
After 15 receiving TDs in 2011, Nelson has a total of 15 TDs 2012 and 2103 combined. In 2013, Nelson had career highs with 85 receptions, 1,314 receiving yards, 82.1 yards per page, and 5 games with 100+ receiving yards. Beneficiary of a health Aaron Rodgers this season.
 
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
2nd-most WR targets in W1 (14) as GB kept him away from SEA CB Sherman; Good chance for 1st TD vs. beatable NYJ secondary in W2
 
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Always underrated, even admittedly by me. He can be a low end fantasy WR1, yet can be had as a third-drafted player.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Has flypaper hands and a great QB -- a golden combination.
There might be some offensive tackles who can outrun him.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Averaging 1288 yards, 76.5 grabs, and 7 TDs the last two full seasons he has turned in.
Crabtree's return to his WR1 role will naturally hurt Boldin's output in 2014.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Jordy is a machine and vastly underrated. Easily a top-10 option provided he stays healthy.
Can still go after the ball and make plays bug age and Crabtree at full health are red flags.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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.
