10/19/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson continued his dominant play on Sunday.
Insight: Nelson started Week 7 fast with a 59-yard touchdown catch on the first drive. He was quiet for much of the remainder of the game, but he still had four catches, 80 yards and the score.
 
10/12/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson continued his dominant play on Sunday.
Insight: He racked up nine catches for 107 yards and a touchdown, on 16 targets. Randall Cobb chipped in five receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown. However, Nelson is clearly Aaron Rodgers' favorite target, and there is no reason for owners to feel his monster season will not continue.
 
Hot9/28/2014 5:12:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson caught a team-high 10 passes on 12 targets, also a team-high, for 108 yards and two touchdowns.
Insight: Nelson is racking up the fantasy points through four weeks of the season. He and Rodgers have a clear connection and with fewer weapons to throw to for Rodgers, Nelson is going to be involved every week.
 
9/21/2014 5:03:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson simply wasn't on the same page with his quarterback Suinday against Detroit.
Insight: Nelson finished with five receptions for 59 yards. He's been dull in two of the three weeks, but what a great Week 2 (9-209-1) he gave fantasy owners.
 
Hot9/14/2014 8:11:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson didn't stop with the one 80-yard touchdown catch and run.
Insight: Nelson caught a total of nine balls for 209 yards. Randall Cobb didn't have the yards, but did score twice, so both receivers were fantasy worthy.
 
8/12/2014 2:55:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson missed Saturday's preseason opener with a hamstring injury but returned to practice Tuesday.
Insight: Nelson likely won't play in the second preseason game either, but he should be ready for the third one. Hamstring issues caused Nelson to miss four games in 2012, but he's bookended that season with two years as a WR1.
 
8/11/2014 9:45:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson missed Saturday's preseason opener with a hamstring injury and hasn't returned to practice.
Insight: Nelson is day-to-day and likely won't play in the second preseason game either, but he should be ready for the third one. Hamstring issues caused Nelson to miss four games in 2012, but he's bookended that season with two years as a WR1.
 
7/27/2014 1:19:00 PM
Description: Green Bay wideout Jordy Nelson signed a four-year contract extension that will pay him $39 million with $14.2M guaranteed.
Insight: Nelson set career highs with 85 catches and 1,314 yards and added eight touchdowns last season. With Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback, the 29-year-old is a low-end WR1.
 
12/29/2013 8:04:00 PM
Description: Green Bay wideout Jordy Nelson looked like his old self Sunday with Aaron Rodgers back under center.
Insight: Nelson's 161 yards on ten catches were both season-highs. Green Bay's next opponent will be the 49ers. Nelson registered 130 yards on seven grabs when he faced San Francisco back in Week 1.
 
11/17/2013 7:23:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson reeled in eight balls for 117 yards Sunday at New York.
Insight: Scott Tolzien looked his way a team-high nine times. Nelson is safe to start next week against the Vikings even with Aaron Rodgers out.
 
10/13/2013 6:44:00 PM
Description: With Randall Cobb and James Jones sidelined for most of the game with injuries, Packers receiver Jordy Nelson had a field day Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: Nelson didn't have many catches (just four) but he made each of them count. Nelson's 113-yard performance marked his highest yardage total since Week 1 against the Niners. He's off to an excellent start (484 yards in five games) and should surpass the 1,000-yard barrier easily as long as he can stay healthy.
 
9/15/2013 6:47:00 PM
Description: Two of Jordy Nelson's three catches went for touchdowns Sunday against the Redskins.
Insight: That's an average of 22 yards per catch. Nelson (196 yards, three TD in his first two games) looks poised for a monster fantasy year.
 
9/8/2013 7:57:00 PM
Description: Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson's knee looked pretty healthy Sunday against the 49ers.
Insight: Nelson had knee surgery in early August and missed most of training camp, but he had 130 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions Sunday. As one of Aaron Rodgers' top-two targets, Nelson will have a huge season if he stays on the field.
 
9/3/2013 8:36:00 PM
Description: Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson (knee) has been cleared to play in Week 1, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Insight: Nelson returned to practice last Monday after having knee surgery and missing most of training camp. He'll be one of Aaron Rodgers' top targets when he's healthy.
 
8/25/2013 2:35:00 PM
Description: Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson (knee) returned to practice Sunday, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Not only does that put Nelson on track to start Week 1, it gives him enough time to work on his conditioning. The receiver had knee surgery shortly after the start of training camp.
 
8/21/2013 6:15:00 PM
Description: Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said that receiver Jordy Nelson (knee) is "very close" to returning, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Nelson said Wednesday that his rehab is "slowly progressing." according to FOX Sports Wisconsin. When asked about his Week 1 status, he said "You never know." However, McCarthy says he feels "pretty good" about Nelson's status.
 
8/6/2013 2:44:00 PM
Description: Green Bay wideout Jordy Nelson (knee surgery) will miss 4-6 weeks, but still has a chance to be back for opening day, according to an Adam Schefter report.
Insight: With Greg Jennings and Donald Driver gone, Nelson, Randall Cobb and James Jones were set for big fantasy production. This could knock Nelson down just a bit and raise Cobb and Jones.
 
1/12/2013 7:22:00 PM
Description: Green Bay wideout Jordy Nelson (knee, ankle) is active for Saturday's game against the 49ers.
Insight: Randall Cobb (illness) and Jermichael Finley (hamstring) are also active, giving Aaron Rodgers plenty of weapons. We'd play Cobb and Greg Jennings over Nelson.
 
1/10/2013 3:43:00 PM
Description: Green Bay wideout Jordy Nelson (knee, ankle) returned to practice on Thursday in a limited capacity. SOURCE: Green Bay Press-Gazette
Insight: Randall Cobb (illness) also practiced. Nelson should be better this weekend than last, when he caught three balls for 51 yards, primarily during the last drive before half-time. However, Greg Jennings, James Jones and Cobb are better fantasy options for Green Bay's Divisional Round game against the 49ers.
 
1/9/2013 2:02:00 PM
Description: Green Bay wideout Jordy Nelson was not practicing Wednesday, according to an Adam Schein report, but the plan is for him to give it a try on Thursday.
Insight: Nelson should be better this weekend than last, when he caught three balls for 51 yards, primarily during the last drive before half-time. Nelson is obviously not 100 percent and the Packers have enough talent that he might only be Aaron Rodgers' fourth-best target at this time.
