Jordy Nelson injury update: Probable Week 11 status boosts fantasy value

Chris Graythen

Green Bay Packers wide out Jordy Nelson was limited in practice this week. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide out Jordy Nelson is expected to play in this Sunday's divisional game versus the Detroit Lions. The Packers receiver was limited in practice this week but was listed as probable on the team's injury report.

He has been bothered with hamstring and foot ailments, but should be expected to go in Week 11 versus the Lions.

Fantasy Analysis: Nelson is expected to play but there is a question of just how effective he will actually be. He is a favorite target of QB Aaron Rodgers, but if Nelson is slowed and their timing is off, his stats could suffer.

Regardless, if Nelson starts as expected, he is a must-start in all fantasy leagues. He is too dynamic a playmaker to leave out of your lineup. And with Greg Jennings still sidelined, he is the most reliable target for Rodgers.
