Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) is active against the Cardinals on Sunday. Nelson missed the Packers' last game after suffering the injury in practice, but will play on Sunday after not practicing this week. Green Bay could have played it safe with a bye week coming up, but will instead go with Nelson in Week 9.
Nelson has 532 yards and five touchdowns in seven games this season.
Fantasy Take: Without practice this week, it's possible that Nelson will have limited snaps against Arizona. However, he could still play enough to suppress the production of Randall Cobb and James Jones, two players who have seen their value rise considerably with Nelson and Greg Jennings out.
Nelson being active, but possibly not at 100%, keeps him as a high-end flex play instead of his usual WR1 status. The Cardinals are fourth in the NFL against the pass.
