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.

Packers | Jordy Nelson evolved into slot receiver (Wed Jul 19, 10:33 AM) - Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson ran nearly half of his routes from the slot and the perimeter in the final 10 games last season. In 181 routes run from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus, Nelson led the NFL with 2.75 yards per route.

Our View: Keep this in mind when looking at matchup data this season. Nelson is the favorite target of QB Aaron Rodgers and fantasy owners love him too. Most are taking him at the turn (1.12) as the no6 wide receiver off the board in 12-team PPR leagues.
