Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After seeing 107 targets in 2017, Jones' incredible touchdown rate propped him all the way up to the WR5 in standard leagues. He caught a touchdown once every 11.9 targets, which is almost double the average rate for wide receivers, which stands at one every 22.8 targets. After scoring just four touchdowns the prior season in the same offense, you have to wonder just how sustainable his touchdown total is. On top of that, the Lions continue to hype up Kenny Golladay, who is another big-bodied wide receiver to take away some of those looks. Jones is a solid fantasy asset, but don't pay for last year's numbers. He averaged just 5.3 targets per game with Golladay in the lineup, but 9.8 targets per game when he was held out. He's going to have some big games, but he'll likely have to share the stage with Golladay at times. Let's be clear - when you go from Aaron Rodgers to Derek Carr, there's going to be a massive efficiency decline. One positive from the move to the Raiders is that it appears they'll be using him in the slot, similarly to the way that the Cardinals use Larry Fitzgerald. Nelson isn't as physically imposing as Fitzgerald, and he's also got to compete with Amari Cooper for targets. While Nelson will be usable as a safe WR4 play most weeks, he doesn't offer you much upside.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
A stunning WR5, Jones submitted an NFL-high 18 yards per reception with the second-best DVAR behind Antonio Brown. He led the league in yards on contested catches (467) and posted a play of more than 20 yards in all but two contests. For all of these superlatives, he's also unlikely to sustain elite production with 3.8 catches per game. This could be a case, however, of a clear regression candidate turning into a value if he keeps falling beyond the fifth round. Nelson tallied 164 yards in eight games without Aaron Rodgers. He now plays for the Raiders, who do not employ Rodgers. Buying low on the WR2 from both 2014 and 2016 is nevertheless tempting, but he didn't produce a single TD or 40-yard performance without his elite teammate. Don't reach for the 33-year-old in his first year away from Green Bay. If he falls outside the top 100, the TD potential is tougher to ignore.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
A premier deep-ball option, no player comes close to his combined mark of 17.5 yards per catch (min. 60 total receptions) over past two seasons - there's not much PPR upside to his game, but something around 1,000 yards and 6+ TDs remain well within his reach 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Jones was a high-end WR1 in fantasy last year but is definitely due for some touchdown-rate regression. Even though he will take a big step backward, he should still be considered a WR2 worth adding in the 5th or 6th rounds.After being a top-three fantasy receiver two straight years, Nelson disappeared last year, posting more than 100 fewer points than the previous year and finishing as a WR5. Now that he is in a new offense and playing in the slot, we might see him split the difference in half making him a useful flex play many weeks.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Was a top-10 fantasy WR last season but will he continue to see as many targets with Kenny Golladay and multiple running backs ready to contribute?  
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
 "Jordy is washed up." "Jordy is too old." "Jordy has lost a step." @friscojosh calls bupkis and names Nelson one of his Three Wide Receivers Primed to Break Out. (4for4) I obviously disagree...
Staff Rankings
QB List
Typically known for his acrobatic catches, the Detroit Lions receiver had a fantastic season last year, ending shockingly as the #5 receiver in standard points leagues. That startlingly high level of production was buoyed by a very high nine total touchdowns, however there's reason to think Jones could post similar scoring rates this year. Jones was the go-to receiver in the red zone last year, earning 43% of the Lions red zone targets, good for 6th in the NFL, and on the other end of the field, Jones functioned primarily as the Lions deep threat receiver, granting him chunk yardage. While I don't expect the exact same prolific catch rates and TD production that catapulted him into the elite receiver tier given a couple key additions to the Lions' runnin back corps, don't be surprised if Jones ends the season among names like Thielen, Green, and Adams squarely within the top 10.I know many are incredibly hyped to see Jordy rocking the black and silver in Oakland (for now), but unfortunately Jordy appears to be a lesser version of the receiver we've known and loved in fantasyland for the past 8 seasons +. He appears slower, more worn down by his career injuries at a ripe 33 years old, and he enters a WR situation where for the first time (not counting the end of last year) he is not the primary option. For the past 3 seasons, Jordy has averaged a MASSIVE 140+ targets per season, well above the average targets per season of consistent fantasy stud Michael Thomas. In addition, he likely won't be the primary target in the red zone either, making the 11 TD's per season he's averaged over the past 3 a lost fantasy. He could always be great within the Raiders passing attack, but his share of targets will make sure that great isn't all that great.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Jones isn't a PPR stud, but he sure was great on deep passes last season and finished as the fifth-best fantasy receiver in non-PPR and 11th in PPR. He'll have his inconsistencies as a home run hitter, but I think he's found a strong-armed quarterback to keep him in he fantasy points.The Packers released Nelson, and the Raiders signed him to be their No. 2 receiver after releasing Michael Crabtree. I don't like the move, but it's done and Nelson will have some value in Oakland as the No. 2 receiver.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Jones has some competition for targets in DET and he's usually fairly TD dependent. I'm not enthralled with him this yearNelson could be a massive steal if the Packers got his release wrong. Still, there are a ton of mouths to feed in OAK and he sure looked slow last year

Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Jones was actually the 8th ranked fantasy wide receiver with 61 receptions for 1,101 yards and 9 touchdowns. He has a lot of talent and should at least be a WR2 in 2018, but the Lions will probably run the ball more in 2018.
