The report by Rob Demovsky is the latest of encouraging reports for Nelson, who practiced fully this week and appears to have made a smooth transition back onto the field after a knee scope brought concern to fantasy football owners earlier this summer.
Fantasy Spin: This is wonderful news to owners who took a risk on him in drafts, especially since the injury concerns caused his average draft position to slide down into the sixth and seventh rounds at one point. At that position, Nelson presents incredible value, and should waste no time giving his owners a return on their investment.
Amid a pass-heavy offense manned by arguably the top quarterback in the game, Nelson has breakout potential each week as long as he's healthy. That appears to be the case this week, and even versus a stingy 49ers defense, he's worth a start.
