Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson will not play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday due to a hamstring injury. Nelson was unable to practice all week and will miss his second consecutive game with this hamstring injury.
Nelson had been one of the Packers leading receivers before getting injured; in 11 games this season he has 46 receptions for 658 yards and six touchdowns. With Nelson out Greg Jennings, James Jones, and Randall Cobb could see more targets.
Fantasy Impact: This is tough news for fantasy owners who were hoping to get Nelson back this week. It remains unknown if Nelson will be ready to play next week or not, so hold him on your bench if you have the room and your season doesn't end this week.
With Nelson out, Jennings, Jones, and Cobb could all see an uptick in value, but the Packers passing game has slowed in recent weeks.
