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.
Amendola will continue to have a prominent role for the Patriots, which gives him the potential for some good performances, but when Rob Gronkowski (ACL) is healthy and Edelman is playing well, Amendola will lag behind in production, especially when you factor in Shane Vereen and the young receivers in Aaron Dobson, Brandon LaFell and Kenbrell Thompkins. Amendola is a late-round flier in standard leagues and a No. 4 receiver in PPR formats.
  
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.
 
  
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.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Jordy is a machine and vastly underrated. Easily a top-10 option provided he stays healthy.
Could blow up in year two but health is such an issue.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Seems destined for WR1 numbers in his potential last season with Rodgers
Flex option but could very well be the top Patriots receiver if he stays healthy
  
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.
 
  
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.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Has flypaper hands and a great QB -- a golden combination.
A PPR specialist who breaks far too easily.
  
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.
 
  
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.
 
  
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.
