David Nelson has first career two-score game for his few fantasy owners

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

The wide receiver had only 29 fantasy points on the season before his two scores Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The yards still aren't there, but no one in fantasy (or real football) really cares when New York Jets wide receiver David Nelson can put up two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-13 win over the Cleveland Browns. It was Nelson's first score(s) of the season and the first multi-touchdown game of his career.

Nelson caught four passes in the game for 33 yards, but did have those two scores. His first touchdown came on a 6-yard pass from quarterback Geno Smith late in the second quarter, kicking off the Jets' scoring, while his second came early in the fourth quarter -- on a 5-yard pass -- and put the Jets ahead to stay.

Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley led the Jets in receiving yardage in the game, catching five passes for 70 yards. No other Jets had more than 35 receiving yards.

Fantasy impact: Nelson had a relatively hot two-game stretch in Weeks 7 and 8, with 80 yards in each game, but had been a non-entity since before Sunday's big scoring day. It seems unlikely he'll repeat the performance in Week 17, but at least he's put himself back on the radar.
