Player Outlook

Jordy Nelson was Fantasy's top receiver last year, racking up 200 Fantasy points over 16 games and posting 10-plus points in nine of them. It helped that the Packers threw 62.7 percent of the time thanks to a depleted run game. The Packers drafted a bunch of rushers to help improve their ground game, making it fairly likely that Nelson won't come close to the career-high 152 targets he had last season. Between that and big-time targets Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and new tight end Martellus Bennett, Nelson's workload could ease up a little. His age is another strike against him -- he's 32 years old. Luckily for Nelson, he has one big positive and he wears No. 12. So long as Aaron Rodgers is on the field, Nelson will have potential for a solid season. Bank on Nelson being one of the first eight receivers to get picked in Fantasy drafts with an early-to-middle second-round pick regardless of format.  

Player News
  • Nelson (ribs) caught six of nine targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 NFC Championship loss to the Falcons. Nelson caught both of his targets for 42 yards on the first drive, but was held to just three receptions for 22 yards on his next six targets before getting into the end zone from three yards out late in the third quarter. The veteran wide receiver did well to even be out there after fracturing at least two ribs against the Giants two weeks ago. He should be fully healthy by the start of the 2017 campaign.

  • Packers' Jordy Nelson: Suits up Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson (ribs) is listed as active Sunday at Atlanta. Likely with a flak jacket in tow to protect his broken ribs, Nelson will take the field two weeks removed from logging an early exit in the wild-card round against the Giants. While his snap count could be capped in order to get the most out of him and fellow injured wide receivers Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring), Nelson will attempt to strike against a Falcons defense that has allowed 165 yards receiving per game and 19 touchdowns to the position in 17 contests this season.

  • Packers' Jordy Nelson: Expected to play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson (ribs) is expected to play in Sunday's NFC championship game in Atlanta, Ian Rapoport and Stacey Dales of NFL Network report. After a week in which the Packers were flirting with trotting out a decimated receiving corps, all of Nelson, Davante Adams (ankle), and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are slated to suit up with the season on the line. Nelson himself will surely be wearing some type of protection over his broken ribs, raising the question of how many snaps he can handle. While any hit could result in an abbreviated affair, he'll aim to connect with Aaron Rodgers against the Falcons' 28th-ranked pass defense.

  • Nelson (ribs) is expected to be active for Sunday's NFC championship game in Atlanta, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Nelson took the field in a limited capacity both Wednesday and Thursday, before he was estimated as "limited" on the Packers' final injury report of the week. Despite the workload, the few routes he ran and passes corralled occurred without pads, suggesting that he wasn't cleared for contact. Like fellow wideouts Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring), Nelson remained questionable after Saturday's light session, meaning a cloud remains over the trio's potential to play in the upcoming do-or-die affair. One way or another, Nelson's availability will be confirmed upon the release of the Packers' inactive list at roughly 1:35 PM ET on Sunday, though how many snaps he can handle remains to be seen.

  • Nelson (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship against the Falcons. Nelson put together two limited practice sessions prior to staying home with an illness Friday. While Nelson's status is not expected to be threatened by his illness, the condition of the wideout's broken ribs will ultimately determine whether he suits up Sunday. According to coach Mike McCarthy, Nelson will be given every chance to play, but it remains to be seen whether he'll be cleared to do. As a result, Nelson's situation will need to continue to be monitored over the weekend. Along with Nelson, fellow wideouts Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are also listed as questionable for Sunday's critical clash.
