Those who have Jordy Nelson on their fantasy team probably got fantastic value, thanks to the presence of Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley on his team. He's slowly emerged as the No. 1 option for Rodgers and he's put together another nice fantasy performance. Those in PPR leagues won't be too happy, as he caught just three balls, but he made them count by picking up 81 yards and a touchdown.
Nelson has been a touchdown machine for the Green Bay Packers, with nine scores prior to Week 14's game against the Raiders. He has been a pleasant surprise all season to fantasy owners who foresaw his budding relationship with this season's uber-quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He climbed all the way up to No. 10 coming in this week's wide receiver rankings over at the SB Nation fantasy sports blog Fake Teams as a result of his hard work. The Packers are approaching shut-down time for the starters, not to mention bad weather at Lambeau, but until he gives you a reason not to it should be safe to keep Nelson in your starting lineup going forward.
