Nelson appears to be fully healthy despite missing the final drive of the Packers' win over the Cowboys for some undisclosed reason. He's had an odd season, in that he's already scored six touchdowns but is on pace to total just 736 yards. Nelson will have to deal with a tough Vikings defense, but it's unclear whether he'll have to contend with Xavier Rhodes or Trae Waynes. If it's the former, expectations for Nelson would have to be downgraded, but if it's the latter, the sky is the limit. Considering Nelson's success against the Vikings last season (14 catches for 227 yards and three touchdowns), it seems likely that Rhodes will shadow him, but without definitive word, he should still be considered a rock-solid WR1.

Jordy Nelson ends touchdown streak in loss

Packers' receiver Jordy Nelson, who had grabbed a touchdown in each game this year that he was healthy for, failed to get one Sunday as the Packers fell to the Vikings 23-10. Nelson had six catches for 60 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Obviously, the larger story here, and the reason he couldn't get a touchdown, was the injury to Aaron Rodgers. Jordy, as the Packers' number one target, will still be fantasy relevant, but his ceiling is much lower with backup Brett Hundley at the helm.
