Summary

Nelson is the Packers best wide receiver. It also helps that he's a big play threat. With Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb both back at full strength, Nelson should see plenty of opportunities to improve on his stats from last season. The Packers are thin at wide receiver for their first time in a while, and until one of the younger guys can get experience, Nelson is going to have to carry the load. Look for top 10 fantasy performance from him this year. (May 26)

Packers | Jordy Nelson day-to-day (Mon Aug 11, 03:22 PM) - Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) is day-to-day as he rests a hamstring injury. Head coach Mike McCarthy doesn't expect Nelson to be out long.
