Not too worried about Nelson being sidelined for the preseason with a knee procedure. He'll be ready for opening day.   
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Jordy could be ready for a breakout year with no Greg Jennings. If Jordy does not get double teamed, Aaron Rodgers will take his shots on Nelson often. The knock on Jordy is all the talent that surrounds him, but at the end of the day. We can easily see Nelson leading the Packers WR core.Might have torn ACL. He is ranked as if that were the case.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Nelson is flying under the radar a bit, so I like him as a sneaky elite play this week.   
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Nelson is back from minor surgery and ready to go. I like all three of the Packers receivers this week because Aaron Rodgers is just that good. Yes, the 49ers are tough, but they aren't going to shut down Rodgers who threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns against them in week 1 last season. The problem is it can be difficult to predict who will get the most points for the receivers so you just have to start them all.   
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
If you can land Nelson as a 3rd receiver in a standard league or a low-end No. 2 WR in a deeper formats, you're ahead of the game. Nelson should be viewed no more then a No.2 Fantasy WR worth drafting at the end of Round 5 and into Round 6, any later and Nelson is a great steal.   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Nelson should be fine coming off his knee procedure, but the 49ers were 4th against fantasy receivers, so I look for Nelson to not be a superstar in the opener.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Itís hard to rank Nelson until we see how long heíll be out. He just had surgery to fix a nerve in his knee.
