Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson caught four passes for 58 yards in the Week 12 tie with the Minnesota Vikings. Nelson was targeted a measely seven times in the game, his lowest tally since Week 7. The Packers turned to Matt Flynn with Scott Tolzien struggling and he largely targeted James Jones and Jarrett Boykin. On the year, Nelson has 61 receptions for 947 yards and seven touchdowns.
Fantasy impact: Nelson has been solid this year and the Aaron Rodgers watch has officially begun as his return could come any time. Nelson is still a solid option and Sunday's numbers shouldn't be concerning yet but with playoffs looming the uncertainty at quarterback has to be on your mind. The Packers do face the Detroit Lions generous secondary on Thanksgiving in Week 13. The Lions are giving up the second most fantasy points to wide receivers.
