WR - FA
Week 2 Outlook
Jordy Nelson has announced his retirement from football.
Nelson spent some time considering offers this offseason, but it appears he's decided to call it quits. As we've seen, this doesn't necessarily mean he'll stay retired, but at this point, it appears he's completed his career. The 33-year-old spent last season with the Raiders after spending his first nine years with the Packers, who selected him in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Jordy Nelson will visit the Seahawks on Tuesday.
The ex-Packer and Raider, Nelson is also drawing interest from the Chiefs, Patriots, and Titans according to Schefter. Nelson isn't the dynamic playmaker he once was but should still have enough left in the tank for 2019.
Jordy Nelson has been released by the Raiders.
It’s a corresponding move to the team signing Tyrell Williams to a four-year deal earlier this week. It’s strange timing, however, as Nelson was already paid his roster bonus. The Raiders have been rather unconventional with their roster moves lately, and this one is no different. The 33-year-old Nelson should be able to find another home before long.
Jordy Nelson had nine receptions for 78 yards on 12 targets in the Raiders' 35-3 loss to the Chiefs Sunday.
Nelson once again had a solid receiving day Sunday. His late-season resurgence leaves hope that there is some fantasy value left for the formerly elite option.
Jordy Nelson had seven receptions for 75 yards on ten targets in the Raiders' 27-14 win over the Broncos Monday night.
Nelson made several key catches to sustain drives Monday in the Oakland win. The veteran has shown he is still productive late in the season and will have value in the later rounds next draft season.
