Jordy Nelson limited again at Packers practice: Fantasy implications

Jonathan Daniel

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was limited again on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was limited at practice on Thursday for a second straight day. Nelson missed one game earlier this season with a hamstring injury and left the win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9 with an ankle injury.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Nelson looked normal and was confident that he would be available in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners counting on Nelson this week should go ahead with that plan as he should be ready to play against a banged up Detroit secondary. Nelson has had some time to rest thanks to the bye in Week 10 and will resume his starting role.

Nelson should be considered a No. 1/2 fantasy wide receiver this week. Fellow Green Bay receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones are also strong candidates for spots in fantasy lineups for Week 11.
