Raiders' Jordy Nelson: Notches pair of receptions in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson caught two of four targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Broncos.

Nelson saw just four targets for a second consecutive week despite quarterback Derek Carr completing an impressive 29 of 32 passes, while Amari Cooper led the receiving corps with 10 catches on as many targets for 116 yards. The re-signing of Martavis Bryant also figures to affect Nelson's target share, as the former hauled in four passes for 30 yards of his own Sunday. Jared Cook and Seth Roberts also combined for seven receptions and a touchdown as a handful of offensive weapons continue to impact Nelson's fantasy outlook.

Raiders' Jordy Nelson: Just 23 yards in Oakland debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson caught three of four targets for 23 yards in Monday's 33-13, Week 1 loss to the Rams.

Nelson was actually Oakland's most productive wide receiver in his Raiders debut, which shows just how little the team got out of the position in this game. Quarterback Derek Carr couldn't get anything going with his weapons on the outside, instead checking it down to running back Jalen Richard and tight end Jared Cook, who combined for 235 yards on 18 catches.

Raiders' Jordy Nelson: Joins Oakland wideout corps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson has agreed to terms with the Raiders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per NFL.com, the wideout's two-year deal is worth $15 million, including $13 million guaranteed.

To make room for Nelson, the Raiders parted ways with Michael Crabtree on Thursday. Nelson, who turns 33 on May 31, saw his production dip in 2017, as he caught 53 passes for 482 yards and six TDs in 15 games. Much of that decline is directly related to the fact that star QB Aaron Rodgers missed the majority of the season. Nelson will now look to prove that he still has something left to offer at this stage of his NFL career, while building chemistry with QB Derek Carr and starting opposite Amari Cooper. While it's going be difficult for Nelson to approach the stellar numbers that he racked up in his prime for Green Bay in tandem with Rodgers, there should be enough volume for him in Oakland to merit fantasy consideration in the context of coach Jon Gruden's offense.

Jordy Nelson: Nearing deal with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders are closing in on a contract with Nelson, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Nelson has wasted no time in finding a new home, seemingly landing with the first organization that inquired about his services. In 2017, he looked like a shell of himself, but working with Brett Hundley instead of Aaron Rodgers for most of the season didn't help Nelson's cause. If the Raiders and Nelson reach an agreement, as expected, he'll get to work with one of the better young quarterbacks in the NFL in Derek Carr. It's been suggested Michael Crabtree would be the casualty of Nelson signing with Oakland, but Nelson would still be nothing better than the No. 2 wideout within the offense, in any case, with Amari Cooper also in the fold.

Jordy Nelson: Visiting Oakland on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson is scheduled to visit the Raiders on Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

After declining the accept a pay cut for 2018, Nelson was released by the Packers on Tuesday, ending his 10-year stay in Green Bay. It's more than fair to wonder how Nelson will fare at his next destination without quarterback Aaron Rodgers, as the aging wideout completely disappeared when Brett Hundley was under center last season, closing out the campaign with nine straight games under 40 yards. Nelson will turn 33 in May, but he's only two years removed from a 97-catch, 1,257-yard, 14-touchdown line. If the Raiders decide to sign Nelson, Michael Crabtree would likely be released as a consequence.
