Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy admits that WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) will be "hard pressed" to play in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions. Nelson left Sunday's Vikings game early when his hamstring flared up. He's been struggling with this injury since Week 8, and it has derailed an otherwise promising season.
Nelson has 46 catches for 658 yards and six TDs on the season.
Fantasy Impact: Nelson's stats have been on a downward trajectory since the lingering injury, sot it's not a surprise that the Packers could simply shut him down and get him ready for the playoffs.
He hasn't been ruled out of Week 14 yet, but I won't count on him playing. Fantasy owners should start looking for a Plan B.
