Jordy Nelson finds the endzone on Sunday

Jordy Nelson played through fractured ribs on Sunday. He finished Sunday's game with a stat-line that included: six receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown. Imagine what other damage he could've caused if he was fully healthy.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson is a candidate for Comeback Player of the Year. Coming off a torn ACL, Nelson looked the best he has ever looked. With 97 receptions, 1,257 yards, and 14 touchdowns, Nelson was a top 10 in every major receiving category. Coming into next year, Nelson will be a top fantasy draft pick among wide receivers, per usual.

Jordy Nelson active for NFCCG

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (ribs) is officially active for Sunday's NFC Championship Game versus the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson will play Sunday at Atlanta with no reports of limitations. However, don't be surprised if he is restricted in some manner depending on his pain tolerance. Despite his active designation, he is a risky, boom or bust DFS option for Championship Sunday as he is one hit away from being taken out of the game.

Jordy Nelson 'expected' to play NFCCG

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (ribs) is expected to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport added that Nelson "ordered military-grade kevlar padding" and will wear it against Atlanta to protect his fractured ribs. Despite the injury, Nelson's presence, if he does, in fact, play, must be honored by the Falcons' secondary as they can't just bank on him being a decoy on the field -- he led the NFL in touchdowns receiving in 2016.

Jordy Nelson still questionable, but not doubtful

Jordy Nelson has not been downgraded to doubtful and appears to be a true game-time decision for the NFC Championship game against Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson has been on fire this season and his presence will be missed on the field if he is unable to go. However, the Packers have had success with and without him in recent weeks. The NFC Championship game is shaping up to be a huge offensive battle with struggling defenses on both sides of the ball.

Jordy Nelson likely a game-time call for NFC Championship

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (illness/ ribs) did not practice Friday due to an illness.

Fantasy Impact

Although Nelson missed Friday's practice, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes the wideout's availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Atlanta "sounds relatively optimistic." Nelson missed Friday's session due to a flu-like illness that has plagued Green Bay's locker room, and not because of his fractured ribs. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told the media Friday that Nelson practiced "more than anticipated" Thursday, which is a step in the right direction for Green Bay's top receiving threat. Barring a setback, it appears that Nelson will try to play Sunday.
