The Packers passing game came to life last week, Nelson should flourish against the Vikings 18th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
The Rams are just 20th against fantasy receivers and Maclin is emerging as a weekly WR1 in the Eagles offense.
  
Staff Rankings

Nelson had 10 catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns. In Rodgers' only other big game Week 2 against the Jets, Nelson had nine catches for 209 yards and a touchdown. The correlation is impossible to miss. As Rodgers goes, so goes Nelson. Just like Rodgers' struggles Week 3 at Detroit were excusable given how the Lions have performed against the pass this season, so were Nelson's. And their struggles Week 1 at Seattle (more Rodgers' than Nelson's in that case) were a given. The Packers offense has done as it's supposed to this season, and Nelson is as big a part of that offense as ever.
