Jordy Nelson caught 3-of-4 targets for 20 yards in the Packers' Week 10 win over the Bears.
Nelson now has just eight catches for 68 yards in three games without Aaron Rodgers. At least so far, Brett Hundley has seemed more comfortable locking onto Davante Adams, while the Packers do not work to manufacture touches for Nelson the way they do Randall Cobb. It seems sacrilegious to suggest dropping Nelson out of the top 36, but he's yet to make his WR3 case without Rodgers. The Ravens are a rough Week 11 matchup for the Packers' Rodgers-less passing attack. Nov 12 - 10:52 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 4-of-7 targets for 35 yards in the Packers' Week 9 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

In two games with Brett Hundley as the starter, Nelson has five catches for 48 scoreless yards on 11 targets. It simply hasn't been good for him, or any of the other Packers' pass catchers, without Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) under center. And Hundley missed a wide-open Nelson down the seam for what should have been an easy touchdown, but the quarterback didn't see him. Nelson needs to be downgraded to WR3 status heading into Week 10 at the Bears.
Nov 6 - 11:35 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 1-of-4 targets for 13 yards in the Packers' Week 7 loss to the Saints.

The Packers' passing attack went all the way off the rails without Aaron Rodgers, as Brett Hundley could complete just 12 passes for 87 yards in his first career start. Hundley rarely challenged outside the numbers, and seemed to have no feel for the speed of the NFL game. He thought he could wait forever for things to develop instead of forcing the issue with timing. Nelson now has the looks of a volatile WR2, and will have to deal with the Lions' solid secondary in Week 9.
Oct 22 - 5:15 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-9 targets for 60 yards in the Packers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings.

Nelson avoided shutdown CB Xavier Rhodes a lot of the day, but that was the lesser concern here. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in the first quarter, and the offense went in the dumps with Brett Hundley, mustering just 10 points. Nelson needs to be moved down to WR2/3 territory until further notice with Hundley. They do get a good spot at home against the Saints in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 5:10 PM

Jordy Nelson (back) has been removed from the Week 6 injury report.

It confirms Nelson's back injury is a non-issue after missing the final drive lask week. Nelson will play his normal snaps, but could be at risk of an in-game setback.
Oct 13 - 3:34 PM

Jordy Nelson (back) is practicing in full for Week 6 against the Vikings.

This explains why Nelson missed the final drive of the Packers' win last week. The full practice confirms it's not a Week 6 concern. Nelson has dealt with multiple injures this year, but has played in every game.
Oct 11 - 5:02 PM

Jordy Nelson insisted he is fine after missing the final drive of the Packers' Week 5 win over Dallas.

NFL Network reported Nelson missed the final drive due to a hamstring injury. On Monday, coach Mike McCarthy conceded Nelson had an injury of some sort, but he would not say what it was. Nelson sounded confident he'll be all systems go for Week 6 against the Vikings. "I'm good," said Jordy. "We got a little banged up, but we'll be good." Nelson has six touchdowns through five games.
Oct 9 - 5:24 PM

NFL Network's Michael Silver reports Jordy Nelson sat out the final drive of the Packers' Week 5 win because of a hamstring injury.

The Packers did not announce an injury for Nelson after the game, but he would not have missed what ended up being the game-winning drive unless he was suffering from something. That said, the issue could end up being minor. The practice reports this week should tell the story. If Nelson sits, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb would get a fantasy boost.
Oct 9 - 10:34 AM

Jordy Nelson hauled in 2-of-4 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Week 5 win over the Cowboys.

After being goose egged in the first half, Nelson saved his fantasy day with a 10-yard score on the first play of the fourth quarter. Fantasy owners will take the touchdown, but Nelson was conspicuously absent during Green Bay's game-winning drive. The Packers did not announce an injury after the game, but his status will be one to monitor this week. If he is good to go, Nelson will remain a WR1 even in a tough matchup in Minnesota.
Oct 8 - 8:20 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 4-of-7 targets for 75 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 4 win over the Bears.

Nelson could have had an even bigger night, but committed a drop and couldn't hold onto another grab following a big hit. Both his scores were the kind of red zone quick hitters he's caught a million times from Aaron Rodgers. Nelson now has 14 touchdowns over his past 11 games at Lambeau Field, and five through four 2017 contests. The Cowboys are an appealing Week 5 matchup.
Sep 29 - 12:16 AM

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-9 targets for 52 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

Green Bay's offense was stuck in the mud the entire first half, as they managed just 73 passing yards and saw Aaron Rodgers get sacked five times. But things heated up after the break, with Nelson scoring two touchdowns to bring the Packers back from a 14-point deficit. His first was a wide-open busted coverage and the second a perfectly-thrown out route where only Nelson could catch it. It came with 17 seconds left to force overtime. Nelson appeared to avoid setbacks with his quad injury and will be a shoo-in WR1 on Thursday night against the Bears.
Sep 24 - 7:58 PM

Jordy Nelson (quad) is active for Week 3 against the Bengals.

He's ready to roll after bowing out of Week 2 in the first quarter. Nelson is a WR1.
Sep 24 - 3:01 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jordy Nelson (quad, questionable) is expected to play Week 3 against the Bengals.

There was some concern early in the week, but coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday he expected his No. 1 receiver to suit up. With Randall Cobb (shoulder) likely to sit, Nelson should see more snaps in the slot, where he has excelled the last two seasons. He is a high-end WR1 this week.
Sep 24 - 1:03 AM

Jordy Nelson (quad) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3.

Despite the Q tag, Nelson is fully expected to play against the Bengals after missing almost all of Week 2 with what he deemed a "charley horse." With to-date Packers target leader Randall Cobb (shoulder) listed as doubtful, Nelson should be locked and loaded into fantasy lineups as a WR1.
Sep 22 - 3:40 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said he expects Jordy Nelson (quad) to be able to play Week 3 against the Bengals.

Nelson has been practicing in full this week after tweaking his quad in the first quarter of last Sunday night's loss to the Falcons and missing the rest of the game. Randall Cobb (chest) is going to be a game-time decision.
