Jordy Nelson secured 5-of-12 targets for 55 yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to the Bills.
Nelson got wide open on a double move late in the third quarter and would have had a 94-yard touchdown, but flat dropped it. Otherwise, he was bottled up by Stephon Gilmore and Corey Graham on the outside as Buffalo's cornerbacks stepped up for a great game. Expect Jordy to rebound at Tampa in Week 16. Dec 14 - 4:37 PM

Jordy Nelson caught eight passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay's 43-37, Week 14 win over Atlanta on Monday night.

He was targeted 10 times. Nelson drew Falcons rising star LCB Desmond Trufant in coverage for most of the night, and Trufant held his own for the most part. On Nelson's first touchdown, Aaron Rodgers had all the time in the world to find Jordy in the back of the end zone from 10 yards out. Nelson's second score was the nail that closed the Falcons' coffin. Nelson put a double-move on the cornerback -- not Trufant -- who then passed Nelson off to the safety, who was then roasted for the 60-yard touchdown down the middle. After being held under 100 yards the past two weeks, it was a nice breakout for Nelson. He'll run most of his Week 15 routes against Bills top CB Stephon Gilmore.
Dec 8 - 11:56 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 2-of-6 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 13 win over the Patriots.

Both the catches and yards were Nelson's second fewest of the season, but he saved his fantasy bacon by roasting Darrelle Revis for a 45-yard score with time winding down in the first half. Nelson got inside position, and was off to the races as he reversed fields. Look for Nelson to make a much-bigger box score impression against the Falcons in Week 14.

Aaron Rodgers said the Vikings made a concerted effort to slow down Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb Sunday.

The Vikings split their safeties to cloud the Packers' wideouts, a move that limited Nelson and Cobb to a combined 12-126-0. "What we have done best is get the ball to Jordy and Randall," Rodgers said. "They have had big statistical seasons so they tried to take them out of the game." Of course, that allowed Eddie Lacy to run through soft boxes for 25-125-1. Nelson and Cobb will see more 1-on-1 coverage in Week 13, but it will be against Darrelle Revis and the Patriots.
Nov 24 - 10:24 AM

Jordy Nelson had eight catches for 68 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Vikings.

Nelson was matched up with Josh Robinson for most of the game. He failed to get anything going downfield with Aaron Rodgers despite his team-high 12 targets. Nelson still led the Packers in receiving in a game where Rodgers only completed 19 passes. He could be shadowed by Darrelle Revis next week against the Patriots, but will remain a top-five receiver play.
Nov 23 - 5:11 PM

Jordy Nelson caught four passes for 109 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 blowout of the Eagles.

Nelson's day should have been even bigger. On a 64-yard catch in the first quarter, he just got tripped up by the shoestrings inside the 10-yard line. Later, he roasted Bradley Fletcher (as he did all day) and Fletcher grabbed Nelson's arm in the end zone, leading to a pass interference call. And finally, Jordy dropped a second-half pass that would have gone for at least a 40-yard gain. Still, Nelson proved once again he's unstoppable with Aaron Rodgers playing some of the best quarterback we've seen in the last decade. He'll be in the conversation as the No. 1 WR for Week 12 when Green Bay travels to Minnesota.
Nov 16 - 7:44 PM

Jordy Nelson had six catches for 152 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 10 win over the Bears.

Nelson caught a 73-yard touchdown against blown coverage on the first play of the second quarter. He was able to exploit a matchup with Bears CB Tim Jennings all night, and later got behind S Brock Vereen for his second touchdown. It was Nelson's fourth 100-yard game of the season. Nelson will be a top-three receiver for next week's matchup with the Eagles.
Nov 10 - 12:28 AM

Jordy Nelson had just three catches for 25 yards in Sunday night's Week 8 loss to the Saints.

Nelson drew only five targets on a night where Aaron Rodgers passed for 418 yards. He was held in check by the Saints defense, and couldn't get anything going downfield. This will likely go down as one of his worst games of the season. Through eight weeks, Nelson is on pace for 100 catches, 1,474 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
Oct 27 - 1:00 AM

Jordy Nelson caught 4-of-5 targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 7 win over the Panthers.

Nelson capped off Green Bay's opening drive with a 59-yard catch and run, putting a clown suit on S Roman Harper. Unfortunately, he drew only four more targets in a game where the Pack didn't have to go full throttle. Now up to 47/712/6, Nelson will be primed for a monster game against the Saints' pathetic defense in Week 8.
Oct 19 - 5:03 PM

Jordy Nelson caught nine passes for 107 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 Week 6 win at Miami.

Matched up with Brent Grimes all day long, Nelson won the battle with ease. The touchdown came on a simple play-action fake from nine yards out that has become a staple of the Packers' red-zone offense. Nelson racked up 16 more targets, giving him 68 through six weeks. He now has three 100-yard games and five touchdowns already, easily putting himself in the No. 1 overall wideout discussion weekly. Nelson won't have trouble eating up a now weak Panthers defense in Week 7.
Oct 12 - 4:36 PM

Jordy Nelson caught one pass for 66 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's win over the Vikings.

Nelson got behind Harrison Smith on a double move for his 66-yard touchdown. It was his only catch of the night. He was targeted just three times before the Packers decided to rest him in the fourth quarter. The NFL's leading receiver, Nelson will remain a WR1 for next week's matchup with the Dolphins.
Oct 3 - 12:10 AM

Jordy Nelson caught 10 passes for 108 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Oddly, the Bears left Nelson in 1-on-1 coverage or lost him in zones on the majority of snaps. And predictably, one of the best all-around receivers in the NFL made them pay with his second massive box score of the season. Through four games, Nelson is on pace for 132 catches, 1,824 yards and 12 touchdowns on 196 targets. It's not a fluke. A dominator at all three levels with an ability to play both inside and outside, Nelson is in play for the No. 1 wideout in all of fantasy football.
Sep 28 - 4:55 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 5-of-7 targets for 59 yards in the Packers' Week 3 loss to the Lions.

There wasn't much yardage to be had on a day where Aaron Rodgers had little time to throw, and was held to just 27 attempts. It's just a temporary setback for the elite WR1. There's going to be a lot more points when the Pack head to Soldier Field in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 4:58 PM

Packers OC Tom Clements brushed off a suggestion that the Packers are feeding Jordy Nelson too much.

Through two weeks, Nelson leads the NFL in targets with 30 -- 15 more than any other Packer. "I don't think we're relying too much on him," Clements said. "We still try to move the ball around, but Jordy is a top-notch receiver and we're going to try to get him the ball." The Packers realize they have one of the most versatile, talented players in the league at their disposal and aren't going to shy away from using him. Expect another monster game against the Lions Sunday.
Sep 18 - 8:15 AM

Jordy Nelson caught nine passes for 209 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 Week 2 win over the Jets.

Nelson was unstoppable as he set a career-high in yardage, making the incredibly difficult catches we've grown accustomed to seeing from him. The highlight was a double-move that went for an 80-yard touchdown and left Dee Milliner shook. Nelson now gets three straight games against the NFC North's wretched pass defenses, and there aren't many players in fantasy we'd rather own right now. Nelson has piled up 30 targets from Aaron Rodgers through two weeks.
