  • Nelson caught three passes for 20 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears. Nelson was targeted nine times by quarterback Brett Hundley in Week 6 after he replaced an injured Aaron Rodgers, so early indications were Nelson would still see plenty of balls in his direction in Rodgers' absence. However, that has turned out not to be the case, as Nelson has seen just 15 targets in the three games since, leading to totals of just eight receptions, 68 yards and -- most importantly for fantasy players -- zero touchdowns. Rodgers has not been ruled out for the season and chances are there aren't any waiver-wire receivers in your league that match Nelson's track record and upside, so there is little reason to cut him loose right now. However, given his recent production and the fact the Ravens have routinely shut down opposing receivers all season, it's going to be tough to rely on him in fantasy lineups in Week 11.

  • Packers' Jordy Nelson: Kept quiet in defeat
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson caught four of seven targets for 35 yards in Monday night's 30-17 loss to the Lions. Nelson was kept in check by a combination of great coverage from Lions cornerback Darius Slay and limited downfield attempts from quarterback Brett Hundley. While the transition from Aaron Rodgers to Hundley always figured to hurt Nelson's fantasy stock, his mere 48 yards in Hundley's two starts evidence that harsh reality. With another week to prepare and a much better matchup in Week 10 against the Bears, however, Nelson will hope a better connection is found in Chicago.

  • Packers' Jordy Nelson: Accrues 60 yards Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson reeled in six of nine passes for 60 yards during Sunday's 23-10 loss in Minnesota. All but one of Nelson's nine targets occurred with Brett Hundley under center due to the early departure of Aaron Rodgers. Because Rodgers' season may be in jeopardy as the result of a broken collarbone, Nelson's stock clearly takes a hit due to the expected drop in quarterback play. During Rodgers' seven-game absence with the same injury in 2013, Nelson averaged 4.6 catches (on 6.9 targets) for 62.4 yards per outing while reaching the end zone just once, a testament to the rapport between the long-time teammates.

  • Packers' Jordy Nelson: Full practice Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson, who had been nursing a back injury, practiced in full Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Nelson was curiously on the sideline during the final drive of Sunday's win in Dallas, but no reason behind the wideout's absence was mentioned, aside from Packers head coach Mike McCarthy stating the wideout "was being evaluated" during that time. Fortunately for Nelson, he brushed off his back concern and completed every practice rep Wednesday. He'll thus be available in Week 6 against a Vikings defense that has given up 13.0 yards per catch and three touchdowns to wide receivers through five games.

  • Packers' Jordy Nelson: Practicing to start week
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson (undisclosed) is taking part in practice Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of reports. Nelson wasn't on the field for the final drive of Sunday's 35-31 win over the Cowboys, but no injury was ever reported. He apparently was just dealing with a minor issue, and he may not even be on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game in Minnesota.
