Can Jordy Nelson get back on track when the Bears come to town?

The Green Bay Packers’ offense has been a disappointment so far this season. A big reason why is Jordy Nelson struggling to reclaim his pre-ACL tear form.

In five games this season, Nelson has caught just 26 passes for 312 yards on 47 targets. He does have five scores that help keep him producing like a good fantasy receiver, but not as much as fantasy owners who drafted him high would have hoped for.

It has also not kept the Packers from struggling mightily at times offensively, which has led to their 3-2 start. Nelson now faces a stingy Bears defense on a short week.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Nelson as the sixth-best receiver in Week 7. He faces a Chicago defense allowing the 14th-most fantasy points to receivers over the past three weeks.

There is no question you will be starting Nelson this week. You just hope that your return on investment starts improving.
