Summary

The diminutive speedster was no better than the No. 4 fantasy receiver for the entirety of 2016, but that's just part of the story. During the final five weeks of the season, Nelson was the No. 2 receiver in fantasy football, scoring four touchdowns during that span. Nelson had 4 games with at least 75 yards last year while spending much of the year as a part-time contributor who only played 10 snaps during the first 5 weeks of the season. Most expect John Brown and Larry Fitzgerald to lead the receiving corps, but Nelson's 2016 stretch run makes him worth a late-round pick, especially with Michael Floyd gone, Jaron Brown coming off a knee injury, and rookie Chad Williams transitioning to the pro game.
