Jordy Nelson adds huge touchdown to boost fantasy stats in Week 12

Rich Schultz

Jordy Nelson scored the only touchdown of the night for the Packers. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Packers offense struggled throughout Week 12, but Jordy Nelson provided the one big spark with saw from Green Bay on Sunday Night Football. He caught a 61-yard touchdown early in the first quarter to tie the game 7-7.

Nelson finished with two catches for 71 yards and his lone score.

Fantasy Impact: We saw several games from Nelson last year where he had just one huge play for a touchdown, which is fine for his owners. He was targeted four times on the night behind Randall Cobb and Jermichael Finley.

Greg Jennings looks like he's closing in on making his return. There's no telling what the target distribution will be like with him back in the mix, but Nelson's value is still high with his big-play ability.
