Jordy Nelson won't test hamstring until Friday, fantasy value remains on hold for Week 9

Bob Levey

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Editor's Update: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson will go through rehab on Thursday and not test his injured hamstring until Friday. Nelson did not practice on Wednesday after being inactive in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Nelson had made 17 catches for 243 yards and four touchdowns in the two games leading up to Week 8. The Packers face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9.

Fantasy Impact: The Packers won in Week 8 despite being a little thin at wide receiver. Nelson's absence, along with the lingering injury to Greg Jennings, created more chances for Randall Cobb and James Jones.

Fantasy owners could get Nelson back this week but that shouldn't keep Cobb and Jones out of fantasy lineups this week against Arizona. If active, Nelson would be a high No. 2 receiver. Jones and Cobb are No. 2/3 options and would again see a boost if Nelson can't play.
