Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson didn't score but caught eight passes for 93 yards in the Week 3 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Nelson was targeted nine times Sunday and was second only to Randall Cobb who had 11 targets. The Packers offense struggled to score points against a tough Bengals defense and Nelson was the leading Packers receiver in the game.

Fantasy impact: The Packers didn't put up big numbers in the passing game and the only receiver to score was James Jones. Nelson led the Packers with 93 receiving yards and will continue to get a ton of looks from Aaron Rodgers. The Packers were decimated at running back after both James Starks and Johnathan Franklin left the game with injuries and the Packers . The Packers have a Week 4 bye and are looking to get healthy. Nelson will return in Week 5 and will remain a must start in all fantasy league.
