Summary

Nelson had an excellent 2014 season, finishing fourth in the NFL in receiving yards (1,519), seventh in catches (98), second in touchdowns (13) and scored the second most points among wide receivers. The biggest question heading into this year is how off season hip surgery will affect him, although the Packers have insisted he will be ready long before week 1. Since entering the league in 2009, Nelson has worked to become one of the most complete wide receivers in the league. He is effective as a possession and red zone receiver, using his size (6'3, 215) to out muscle defenders and he excels at catching the ball out in front of his body. Nelson has deceptive speed, which when combined with his size, allows him to consistently beat defenses over the top, resulting in (19) catches of 20 yards or more in 2014. With Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball, and another dangerous receiver in Randall Cobb opposite him, all signs point to Nelson having another top 10 fantasy season. (May 15)
