Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver would be in line for more playing time on Sunday if Jordy Nelson is inactive against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Nelson has been slowed by a hamstring injury and did not practice on Thursday. Driver has a neck injury but is expected to play on Sunday, according to coach Mike McCarthy.
In addition to Driver, the Packers would use rookie Jarrett Boykin at wide receiver. Green Bay is again expected to be without Greg Jennings (groin). He has missed four games this season, including the last two.
Fantasy Impact: Driver has been the No. 5 receiver for the Packers this season but was kept around as an insurance policy for situations like this one. Nelson could be a big loss for the Packers but his absence would mostly boost the value of James Jones and Randall Cobb.
Driver would be a longshot as a flex play for this week and that's only if Nelson is inactive. Nelson is expected to test his hamstring on Saturday or Sunday, so fantasy owners will want to keep an eye out for updates.
