Summary

If there was any question as to Jordy Nelson's value to the Packers offense, they were answered definitively in 2015. His injury (torn ACL) changed the dynamic of the Packers wide receiver core, shifting Randall Cobb and Davante Adams into #1 and #2 options, respectively. That shift turned out to be too much for both players, with Cobb receiving extra attention from opposing secondaries and Adams facing off against starting caliber cornerbacks. Prior to missing the 2015 season, Nelson was coming off a 98 catch, 1,519 yard and 13 touchdown season in 2014. He had proven himself to be a complete receiver capable of taking the top off a defense downfield, while also working the sidelines on short and intermediate routes. He is one of the better red zone threats in the league today, having totaled 36 touchdowns in his last three complete seasons. With Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball, Nelson remains a safe fantasy option with upside to boot, the only question is how he will respond to his surgically repaired knee. (May 21)
