Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has already caught three passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the first half of Sunday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings. With the loss of Randall Cobb who is on injured reserve with the designation to return, and James Jones who is battling a knee injury and inactive, Nelson becomes the favorite to gain quarterback Aaron Rodger's attention. Nelson also leads the Packers in the first half in targets with four.

Fantasy impact: With Randall Cobb and James Jones out, Jordy Nelson should continue to see a ton of looks from Rodgers. Nelson showed off his speed out running everyone to the end zone on his second score of the game. Nelson also leads the Packers in targets with four. With Nelson unsurprisingly making the most of his looks, he should continue to get his fair share of the targets from Aaron Rodgers. Nelson remains a must start in every fantasy football league.
