Summary

The first seven weeks of the 2016 NFL season were rough for Nelson, but he really poured it on after that. As he was coming off a serious ACL injury, it's not terribly surprising he struggled at first, but he finished with five games of over 100 yards receiving and another three of just over 90 yards. He also had three multi-touchdown games, and found the end zone in eleven out of sixteen games. Nelson finished as the #2 wide receiver in PPR formats, less than a point behind #1 Antonio Brown. His 14 touchdowns were tops among wide receivers, while also finishing fifth in receptions (97) and sixth in receiving yards (1,257) Nelson is still in the heart of his career and we expect him to continue to be Aaron Rodgers' chief and most reliable weapon in the passing offense and do the same for fantasy owners this season.
