As expected, Nelson was the favorite target from Aaron Rodgers in the opener garnering a staggering 14 targets, catching nine of them. As long as he's healthy, Nelson is a bonafide WR1.

Downgrade him because it's Seattle, but also keep in mind that Richard Sherman doesn't shadow a team's #1. Jordy will get his looks.
 
  
Kevin Roberts

GB should move Jordy around to get him different matchups. He won't dominate, but I can't see him getting shut down, either.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Nelson will be a WR1 most weeks, but he has a bad matchup against a Legion of Boom defense that allowed the fewest points to fantasy receivers. Nelson is a WR2 this week.
