Packers declared WR Jordy Nelson, WR Davante Adams, CB Damarious Randall, RB Aaron Jones, OG Jahri Evans, TE Richard Rodgers, and LB Chris Odom inactive for Week 17 against the Lions.
That puts an end to Nelson's worst season of his career. As soon as Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in October, it was all over for Nelson. Weeks 1-6, Nelson averaged a 5.0-58.0 weekly line with all six of his touchdowns. From Week 7 on, Nelson averaged a 3.1-21.3 weekly receiving line with zero scores. Nelson had no 100-yard games on the year. He turns 33 in May and may have played his final game in Green Bay after the Packers handed out a massive extension to Davante Adams this week. Nelson has one year left on his deal at $9.25 million. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 11:33:00 AM

Jordy Nelson (shoulder) is out for Week 17 against the Lions.

He finishes an extremely disappointing 2017 with a 53-482-6 line and turns 33 in May. Nelson has one year left on his contract, at $9.25 million in 2018.

Jordy Nelson (shoulder) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Nelson is fully expected to miss Sunday's finale, bringing the curtain down on his 2017 with just 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns. Nelson should be formally ruled out on Friday.

Jordy Nelson (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday.

Nelson was hurt in Saturday night's loss to the Vikings, and coach Mike McCarthy admitted he's unlikely to play in the meaningless finale. Nelson's season went in the tank after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, amassing a seven-year-low 482 yards and career-worst 9.1 YPR. Nelson will be 33 in May and heads into the final year of his contract set to pay him $9.25 million.

Jordy Nelson exited Saturday night's Week 16 game with a shoulder injury and will not return.

The nature of Nelson's injury is unknown, but he was in a ton of pain on the field in the third quarter and had to come off the field. Before exiting, Nelson had three catches for 11 yards and one drop among five targets. The Packers will roll with Michael Clark, Trevor Davis, and Randall Cobb at receiver.

Jordy Nelson caught 3-of-6 targets for 28 yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

It was another bitterly disappointing day for the Packers' former No. 1 receiver, especially since Davante Adams missed the majority of the second half with a concussion. It wasn't all Nelson's fault, as a rusty Aaron Rodgers missed him on a few critical throws, none more critical than what might have been a 75-yard touchdown in the third quarter had Rodgers not under-thrown it. Things won't get any easier in Week 16 as the Pack take on Xavier Rhodes and the Vikings.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 05:22:00 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 4-of-5 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Browns.

This was par for the course for Nelson with Brett Hundley under center. Nelson has fallen off the map as a fantasy asset as he has now has posted 35 yards or fewer in all seven of Hundley's starts on the season. If Aaron Rodgers returns next week, he will re-enter the discussion as a fantasy option, but is not usable as long Hundley remains the quarterback.

Jordy Nelson caught 5-of-8 targets for 17 yards in the Packers' Week 13 win over the Bucs.

It's hard to be less efficient. Nelson couldn't make anything happen on his short grabs, and Brett Hundley made nothing happen downfield. Hundley threw for just 84 yards total. He tried to hit Nelson on a deep ball down the middle, but the throw wasn't anywhere close and was easily picked off. Nelson will remain off the fantasy radar next week against the Browns.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 04:58:00 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 3-of-5 passes for 11 yards in Week 12 against Pittsburgh.

Nelson's struggles continued as he was nearly invisible for the majority of the game. The lack of connection between Hundley and Nelson is apparent and seems to be the main reason for his fall in fantasy. Nelson is a tough start as a WR4 with Hundley under center in Week 13 against the Bucs.
Mon, Nov 27, 2017 12:42:00 AM

Jordy Nelson caught 2-of-6 passes for 24 yards in Week 11 against Baltimore.

Nelson continued to take a backseat to Davante Adams, who led the Packers in receiving. He's been a non-factor without Aaron Rodgers, getting held under 35 yards in four straight games. Nelson has a shy-away matchup against the Steelers in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 04:49:00 PM

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.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 10:52:00 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.
Mon, Nov 6, 2017 11:35:00 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.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 05:15:00 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.
Sun, Oct 15, 2017 05:10:00 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.
