Jordy Nelson did not practice on Thursday, fantasy value in question

Leon Halip

Jordy Nelson did not practice for the second consecutive day. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide out Jordy Nelson did not practice on Thursday, via Tom Silverstein. This will be the second consecutive day the Packers' receiver was held out.

Nelson has been battling a hamstring injury, and at this rate, he will miss Sunday's game versus the Detroit Lions. Aaron Rodgers will have to manage without the services of his top receiver.

Fantasy Analysis: It's another tough break for Jordy Nelson owners. The hamstring has been bothersome and the Packers don't want to risk further aggravating it.

Nelson will be a game time decision. While he still has Friday to show up in practice, it is unlikely that he'll play on Sunday. Monitor Nelson's status, but be prepared to make a change if necessary.
