High-Variance Players: WR Jordy Nelson - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff discusses the high side and low side of Jordy Nelson

When August rolls around, the fantasy football community usually reaches a consensus on most players. Jordy Nelson isn't one of those players. While he's averaging somewhere around WR46, he has been ranked between 31 and unranked at his position. What are your thoughts on him? Is he underrated or overrated? Or neither?

Devin Knotts: The move to Oakland is a disappointing one. If Nelson had remained in Green Bay and was this value he would be a steal. Even moving to Oakland he is being unfairly underrated due to last season.

Let's face it, Nelson had a year to forget last season and it is easy to look at it on the surface and say he is an aging receiver who no longer has the separation that he once had. That may be true, however, he is still a tremendous touchdown threat every time he steps on the field. In Jordy's six games with Aaron Rodgers, he scored six touchdowns. With Brett Hundley on the field, Jordy failed to score a touchdown, so while Derek Carr is not Aaron Rodgers he is a significant upgrade compared to Hundley who was atrocious last season. I expect somewhere in the neighborhood of 750 yards and 8 touchdowns for Jordy this season which should have him paying off his current draft position.
