Jordy Nelson loses all fantasy value, ruled out for Week 15

Rich Schultz

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 15. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has been ruled out for Week 15 because of a hamstring injury. Nelson has not practiced this week and was not expected to play on Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Nelson missed time earlier this season because of a hamstring injury and was inactive for last weekend's victory over the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Coach Mike McCarthy had said earlier in the week that he was hopeful that Nelson could play but no one was expecting him to suit up this weekend. His absence boosts the fantasy value of Greg Jennings, Randall Cobb and James Jones for Week 15.

Cobb is a fringe No. 1 receiver this week, while Jennings should be considered more a No. 2/3 option. Jones is a No. 3 receiver of flex play in most formats.
