Dan Harris

 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.

The Steelers have allowed the third most points to fantasy receivers in the last 5 weeks, Cooks should be a solid WR1 this week.Nelson should return to having low-end WR1 value with Rodgers likely under center this week.
