Jordy Nelson ruled out for Sunday: Fantasy implications

Leon Halip

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was ruled out for the Packers' game against the Detroit Lions. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson did not take part in the Packers' practice on Friday according to Bob McGinn. Nelson did not practice all week due to a hamstring injury and has been ruled out for the Packers game against the Lions on Sunday.

Nelson has been the Packers top receiver this season with 46 receptions for 658 yards and six touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: With Nelson out on Sunday make sure to remove him from your starting lineup. The Packers hope the receiver is able to return for a Week 15 battle with the Bears.

With Nelson out that means more targets for Greg Jennings, James Jones, and Randall Cobb. All three of those Packers receivers are strong fantasy options in Week 14.
