Jordy Nelson added to Packers injury report: Fantasy implications

Doug Pensinger

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) has been added to the team's injury report. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was added to the injury report on Wednesday after his hamstring tightened up during practice. Nelson had eight catches for 122 yards and a touchdown last weekend against the St. Louis Rams and caught three touchdowns in the Week 6 win over the Houston Texans.

The Packers are already without Greg Jennings (groin) and veteran Donald Driver (neck) also did not practice on Wednesday. Green Bay faces the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: This doesn't sound too serious but fantasy owners should follow injury updates from the team as the week goes along. Nelson has been one of the best receivers in fantasy football the last two weeks and has another good matchup with Jacksonville on Sunday.

Assuming Nelson can play, he is a No. 1 fantasy receiver for Week 8.
