Jordy Nelson expected to ready for fantasy owners in Week 11

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (ankle) should be ready to play in Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson looked normal in practice on Wednesday and should be ready to play in Week 11, according to coach Mike McCarthy. Nelson missed the team's game in Week 8 with a hamstring injury and left the team's win in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals early after injuring his ankle. The Packers had a bye in Week 10.

Nelson was listed as limited on Wednesday but McCarthy indicated that he should be ready to go against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The bye came at a good time for Nelson, who had put up big fantasy numbers in the two weeks before he hurt his hamstring. Greg Jennings is still not ready to return for the Packers, so Nelson's return will only help the team's passing game.

Nelson should be considered a high-end No. 2 fantasy option at wide receiver this week against Detroit.
