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. 
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.Garcon has done the most he can do with the limited opportunities afforded to him with Brian Hoyer at the helm, reeling in nine of 15 targets for 107 yards. He'll now get a tough draw against a Rams team that has been solid against wide receivers so far this season (though one game was against the Scott Tolzien-led Colts, to be fair), but potentially may be without Trumaine Johnson. It's a nationally-televised home game, so the 49ers are probably anxious to put their best foot forward. That should mean plenty of targets for Garcon on Thursday, with a decent floor, making him a low-end WR3.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Garcon had just 3 receptions in Week 2, but that was against the Seahawks. This Thursday, we should expect much more similar production to what we saw in Week 1 with 6 catches for 81 yards. He is a WR3 this week at home against the Rams.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Adam Schefter reports Jordy Nelson (quad) is "50-50" for Week 3 against the Bengals. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
We'll need to learn more about his injury status, but if he's good to go, expect another top-flight game.
