Nelson's quad looked like it was going to keep him out earlier in the week, but he is expected to play and with WR Randall Cobb likely to miss this week; Nelson is shaping up as a WR1.The Giants are 10th against fantasy wide receivers, but Jeffery should still be in the low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 discussion.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Adam Schefter reports Jordy Nelson (quad) is "50-50" for Week 3 against the Bengals.If Jenkins is out Alshon Jeffery becomes a must start in all formats, he'll feast on Eli Apple who moves from slot CB to the outside.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
It looked early in the week like Nelson would be on the sidelines for Week 3's game after being pulled early from Week 2's matchup against the Falcons with a quad injury. But practice reports have been positive for Nelson, and it looks like he'll play. If he does suit up, the chance of him aggravating the injury raise some concerns, but his opportunity for a successful fantasy day should far outweigh any doubts. Nelson will likely draw Dre Kirkpatrick in coverage, who is a fine, but beatable cornerback. In addition, Randall Cobb is doubtful for the game, and in the three games that Cobb missed last season, Nelson had 19 catches for 314 yards and three touchdowns. That makes Nelson a WR1 here, despite the injury concerns.Jeffery had a big performance in Week 2 against Kansas City, with seven catches for 92 yards and a touchdown, but he'll have a tougher matchup to contend with here against the Giants. New York has not allowed more than eight fantasy points in standard leagues to any receiver so far this season, and the defense has allowed just three receivers to surpass 100 yards last year. Janoris Jenkins may need another week to recover from his ankle injury, which would boost Jeffery's value a bit. But he'll still be a low-end WR2, at best, in the unfavorable matchup.

We'll need to learn more about his injury status, but if he's good to go, expect another top-flight game.Jeffery would get a big bump if Janoris Jenkins is out again, but it does look like he'll be able to play. I expect Ertz to be the go-to guy this week, but Jeffery is always a good bet for a touchdown.
