Jordy Nelson returns to practice on Wednesday: Fantasy Implications

Rich Schultz

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) returned to practice. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide out Jordy Nelson returned to practice on Wednesday, via Rob Demovsky. The Packers receiver had not been able to participate, bothered with a hamstring injury.

As expected though, the Packers kept chugging along, doing their best to position themselves for the postseason. There is the slight possibility Nelson suits up in Week 17, but he will likely be a game-time decision.

Fantasy Analysis: Nelson has been perhaps the most dominant receiver for the Packers when he is healthy. There is a chance he returns for the season finale. In Week 17, the Packers will take on the Vikings, it what should be a hard-fought game in the NFC North.

Continue to ride Nelson if he's good to go. And keep an eye out for him in future seasons, as Greg Jennings could be on his way out of Green Bay.
