Were Aaron Rodgers healthy, Nelson would be his typical solid WR1 play, as the Saints allow the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. But with Brett Hundley under center, Nelson has to be downgraded. Working in Nelson's favor is that he was generally targeted on shorter routes this year, which should favor targets from the young quarterback. But he'll also likely draw Marshon Lattimore, which could lead Hundley to avoid that matchup as much as possible. For now, consider Nelson a borderline WR1/2, and hope that he and Hundley show a strong connection.

Jordy Nelson a non-factor in loss

Jordy Nelson caught only one ball for 13 yards in Sunday's game against the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

With the injury to Aaron Rodgers, Nelson has gone from a top-five receiver for the season to more like a top-20 receiver. While he is still a weekly start, his numbers will not be what you would have expected from him just a week ago, and he should be considered more of a WR2 at this point.
