Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 6 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)

Nelson had a 5-yard gain on a screen pass but was barely part of the game plan, seeing just three targets on the day. Nelson has done most of his damage this season deep down the seam and the Seahawks defense was dropping the safeties deep into coverage and the pass rush was getting home quickly.

2018 Week 5 vs LAC (4 / 4 / 43 / 1 rec)

Nelson caught a short pass over the middle and broke a tackle to get loose for a big gain of 29 yards. Nelson caught a 1-yard touchdown pass on one of the weirder plays of the season. After Jalen Richard picked up a first down but was ruled down just shy of the end zone, Carr hurried to the line when he saw nobody was out wide to cover Nelson. He quick-snapped it and tossed it out to Nelson who was able to walk into the end zone. The Raiders had multiple receivers on the other side of the field still trying to get lined up, so the play should have been blown dead.

2018 Week 4 vs CLE (8 / 5 / 48 / 1 rec)

After hitting a couple big plays right out of the gate last week, Nelson almost did the same this week. He ran a rub route with Jared Cook that confused Browns defenders and left Nelson all alone behind the defense for what should have been a 72-yard touchdown but Carr badly underthrew it. Nelson was quiet for most of the game but made a pair of key plays in the 4th quarter. He caught a 19-yard touchdown on a post route to put the Raiders ahead late. Then won a jump ball on a two-point conversion attempt in the final seconds to send the game to overtime

2018 Week 3 vs MIA (8 / 6 / 173 / 1 rec)

Nelson did almost all of his considerable damage on the day in the first six minutes, with three catches for 139 yards and a touchdown by the 9-minute mark of the first quarter. The second play of the game, he caught a slant over the middle and broke free for a 61-yard catch and run, showing nice speed down the sideline. Two plays later, he caught a 12-yard touchdown pass on a broken coverage that left him uncovered in the middle of the end zone. A few minutes later, he ran a seam route from the slot and snagged a 66-yard reception, getting dragged down inside the Miami 10-yard line. Nelson was then a non-factor for three quarters before getting hot again in the final six minutes. He drew a pass interference on a key 3rd down. A few plays later, he caught a 16-yard pass over the middle in heavy traffic.

2018 Week 2 vs DEN (4 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)

It was a second-straight quiet game for Nelson. He is playing plenty of snaps and remains entrenched as the #2 wide receiver but hasn't been a big part of the game plans yet. Nelson went low near the sideline to grab a 23-yard reception on the Raiders first pass of the game. He made a leaping catch on a poorly thrown screen pass from Carr that went for a short gain. Nelson was targeted in the end zone but the play was well covered and Carr played it safe by throwing it high and out of everyone's reach.

2018 Week 1 vs LAR (4 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)

While Amari Cooper's quiet game will get most of the attention, Nelson was also a non-factor with just four targets. All of them came on short passes. While Nelson looked fairly spry, it was clear that the Raiders were mostly content to ignore the wide receivers and avoid the coverage of Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib.
