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.

Jordy Nelson: Cut by Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers released Nelson on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

At this point in his career, Nelson is Aaron Rodgers-dependent, posting no more than 35 yards in the eight games in which he played without the signal caller in 2017. While Rodgers will be back in the fold, Nelson's age (he'll be 33 in May) and cap figure ($12.5 million this season) likely swayed the decision-making process in Green Bay. The long-time Packer enters the open market with 69 touchdowns among his 550 receptions, but on the heels of a career-worst 9.1 YPC.

Packers' Jordy Nelson: Not expected to take pay cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Mike McCarthy were adamant Wednesday that Nelson remains a key part of the team's nucleus, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

After returning for the 2016 season after missing the previous campaign while recovering from a torn ACL, Nelson wasn't the downfield threat he had been in his prime years, but was nonetheless supremely impressive in finishing with 97 receptions for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns. That showing was expected to make Nelson a safe early-round fantasy selection in 2017, but the wideout instead saw his numbers crash in dramatic fashion, averaging a career-worst 9.1 yards per reception while scoring just six touchdowns, his lowest total in any season since 2010. While the absence of franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) for the bulk of 10 games surely factored into the downturn in productivity, Nelson still didn't look like his usual self in the six contests Rodgers completed, reeling in 22 of 33 targets for 258 yards, with only three receptions of 20-plus yards. It appears the Packers aren't planning to limit Nelson's role or ask him to take a pay cut as he heads into his age-33 campaign, but his diminished explosiveness means that fantasy players shouldn't necessarily expect a dramatic bounceback from the receiver in 2018 even with a healthy Rodgers back in the fold.
