Jordy Nelson represents one of the most fascinating fantasy outlooks of the week, as he's been nearly non-existent with Brett Hundley under center (35 yards or fewer in each game and zero touchdowns), but has been a strong WR1 when Aaron Rodgers was at quarterback. With Rodgers back this week against Carolina, Nelson may instantly return to must-start status, but there's obviously some doubt. Luckily, the Panthers are not an imposing matchups for opposing wide receivers, and even if Nelson sees James Bradberry in coverage, his chemistry with Aaron Rodgers and nose for the end zone should allow him to provide plenty of fantasy value. Nelson should be started in most leagues on Sunday, but there's obviously some risk.

Jordy Nelson held in check again in Week 14

Jordy Nelson caught four of his five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's victory over Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson has been an after thought in the Packer offense since the injury to Aaron Rodgers. There is no player that will benefit more from the return of Rogers than Nelson. If you held onto him and are somehow still alive in the playoffs and you could reap benefits. Nelson will be difficult to trust based on his recent performance, but few have had the same connection that Rogers and Nelson have and if you held onto him this long, this is what you were hoping for. Still exercise caution and monitor Rogers' status throughout the week because if he doesn't return Nelson isn't startable. Even if Rogers does return Nelson would still be a risky WR3.
