Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson had a disappointing Week 1 performance. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson had a so-so day against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1. Sunday's match-up was a tough one for the receiver, who only came away with five catches for 64 yards and was held out of the end zone. It was not a typical day for Nelson, but the same could be said for the entire Packers team who suffered a loss to the Niners.

Fantasy Analysis: Nelson's mediocre performance should not make fantasy owners skittish. The Packers had a very tough match-up in San Francisco and Nelson should be expected to rebound as soon as next week. Nelson has became the leading receiver for Aaron Rodgers and the Pack in 2011, and could be in for an even better season this year. Jordy Nelson remains a must-start each week.
