David Nelson will miss the rest of the 2012 season. We break down the fantasy implications.

An MRI on David Nelson's knee revealed that the Bills wide receiver has a torn ACL. Nelson will miss the remainder of the 2012 season.

Fantasy Impact: You can go ahead and drop David Nelson from your roster. Unfortunately the third-year wide receiver will not be playing anymore this season, costing the Bills a huge blow to begin the season. Brad Smith and T.J. Graham will move up a spot on Buffalo's depth chart, with Donald Jones remaining as the No. 2 option for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Nelson could be retained on injured reserve for dynasty leagues, but that's the only option for fantasy owners right now.
