While he didn't blow any away with his performance, Jordy Nelson led the Packers in receiving on Thursday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

With Greg Jennings out for the game, Jordy Nelson stepped up and attempted to take over the No. 1 receiver role. He managed to haul in six receptions for 84 yards on the night, be a couple drops marred what could have been a great all-around performance.

Fantasy Impact: Nelson dropped an easy slant route pass to open up the game, then later missed a deep toss that was on the money from Rodgers. He wasn't as sure-handed as always, but he did manage to put up decent numbers, considering the Packers offensive struggles throughout the night. Nelson is the go-to-guy when Jennings is out, and even when he returns, Nelson will still be a focal point in this offense.
