Jordy Nelson saw his lowest fantasy numbers of the season on Sunday. Nelson caught six passes for 56 yards in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The last time Nelson had less than 60 receiving yards, he was still able to find the end zone. His stat line doesn't tell the whole story, however. Nelson had a touchdown catch that was ultimately ruled incomplete as Nelson appeared to fail securing the catch after review. With quarterback Scott Tolzien filling in for the injured Seneca Wallace, Nelson still saw plenty of work throughout the day. Nelson was targeted 10 times, second only to receiver Jarrett Boykin (13 targets).
Fantasy impact: Nelson owners were likely bracing themselves for disappointment without Aaron Rodgers. As expected, Nelson had a mediocre stat line when all was said and done. Nelson will likely never see the same production as he does with Rodgers as long as Tolzien is the starter, but his target count shows that he's still relied upon heavily in the passing game. Nelson will be a WR3 until Rodgers returns. He'll face the Giants in Week 11, who have been mediocre in limiting fantasy wide receivers.
