Jordy Nelson had three receptions for 87 yards and a touchdown during the Packers' loss to the Vikings on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Jordy Nelson had three receptions for 87 yards and a touchdown during the Green Bay Packers' loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Nelson was targeted five times on the day by quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Nelson had missed three straight games entering Week 17 due to a hamstring injury. He was immediately able to return to his usual ways as a deep threat, however. On the season, Nelson is averaging over 15 yards per reception.
Fantasy Impact: Nelson struggled with injuries at times, but he was a solid WR2 with tremendous upside in standard fantasy leagues this season. Aaron Rodgers is a threat to put up video game-type numbers on any given Sunday, and Nelson should continue to benefit as long as he is in Green Bay.
