Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 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.
Derek Lofland

Cooks has started to pick up the pace, posting over 80 yards in back-to-back weeks. He is a low-end WR1 against the Falcons secondary. Nelson will be hurt by the loss of QB Aaron Rodgers, but he should maintain WR1 value at home against a bad Saints D.
