We're now two weeks into the Nelson experiment with the Raiders and it's not looking great, as he's totaled just 53 yards on eight targets. The matchups have been tough, but Nelson hasn't shown anything that indicates he'll break out of the funk soon. In fact, Martavis Bryant produced more in his first game with the team in Week 2. If the alignment remains the same, he'll see Bobby McCain in coverage the majority of time. He's not their top cornerback, though he's played well through two weeks this year, allowing just 5.21 yards per target in coverage. Even last year, he allowed just one touchdown in his coverage on 65 targets. This isn't a week to play Nelson.

Jordy Nelson quiet versus Broncos

Jordy Nelson had two receptions for 30 yards on four targets in the Raiders' 20-19 loss to the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Amari Cooper was the clear focus of the passing attack against Denver Sunday. Nelson will have occasional value this season as a red zone presence, but is best left out of lineups at this point.
