Summary

When the Green Bay Packers cut Jordy Nelson, the Raiders pounced, signing him to a two-year, $14.2M deal. Nelson is coming off of a major down year in which he averaged just 32 receiving yards per game and looked to have lost a couple steps. He will be 33-years old this season and there are major questions as to how much left he has in the tank. A move inside to the slot on a nearly full-time basis may rejuvenate his career, however. The move inside worked to rejuvenate the career of Larry Fitzgerald, another big-bodied outside receiver, and Nelson has the potential to re-create that success on a lesser scale. However, the more likely scenario is that Nelson continues his fade from fantasy relevance as he moves to a lesser role in a worse offense. Jon Gruden has emphatically stated that the passing offense will flow through Amari Cooper and Martavis Bryant will also command plenty of targets across from Cooper. Plus, nobody is going to be mistaking Derek Carr for Aaron Rodgers anytime soon. As such, it is hard to be optimistic about Nelson's fantasy prospects. (May 28)

Raiders | Jordy Nelson proving himself (Thu Aug 2, 03:08 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson has been moving well, running polished routes and showing leadership in training camp. He is also developing good timing with QB Derek Carr.

Our View: It was interesting that the Packers cut bait after what amounted to one bad season, but that might work out for Oakland. Sure, there is risk due to his 33 years, but the move inside could help. If he can bounce back, Carr and Amari Cooper will both benefit. His current ADP of 44th receiver off the board is about where he should be right now, but he could end up surpassing that.
