Jordy Nelson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Nelson (hamstring) is slated to take part in Friday's practice, after which the Packers will determine his status for Saturday's game at St. Louis, ESPN.ocm reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Coach Mike McCarthy noted that Nelson "looks good," and another practice this week would go a long way toward achieving active status. If something looks awry, though, the Packers would likely keep him sidelined for a second preseason outing in a row, with precaution the name of the game to avoid any setback.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Previously slated to become a free agent after the 2014 season, Nelson is now signed through 2018. His per-target numbers are consistently elite, and he's the unquestioned No. 1 wide receiver in one of the NFL's more explosive offenses. Even with Aaron Rodgers missing seven games last season, Nelson managed to catch 85 passes for 1,314 yards and eight touchdowns, despite seeing a modest 126 targets. With James Jones and possibly Jermichael Finley (neck) out of the picture, Nelson could see even more passes in 2014.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Of course, Nelson was going to regress from a historically efficient season of 13.2 YPT. And he did Ė to a merely elite 10.2. Nelson had only 73 targets, thanks to ankle, foot and hamstring injuries costing him the better part of five games. When healthy, Nelson saw 12 red-zone targets, converting four, and struck for four catches of 40-plus yards. At 6-3, 217, Nelson has excellent size and decent speed, and Aaron Rodgers often looks to him for the downfield strike. With Greg Jennings now in Minnesota, Nelson will split the receiving targets with Randall Cobb, James Jones and tight end Jermichael Finley, but as always in Green Bay thereís enough opportunity for everyone. Nelson had a procedure done his knee in July that was performed to clear up a lingering problem, with the expectation being that he'll be ready to go in Week 1.

2012

The big-play receiver in one of the most prolific offenses in recent memory, Nelson averaged an ungodly 13.2 YPT, easily the most by any 90-target receiver in the last decade. Itís simply unheard of for a receiver to average 18.6 YPC and catch 71 percent of the balls thrown his way. Nelson had seven catches of 40-plus yards (tied for 3rd) and scored 15 touchdowns, second among all wide receivers, despite seeing just 96 targets. It helps that Nelson is 6-3, 217, with good speed and that Aaron Rodgers has a cannon for an arm and can buy time on broken plays. It also helped that Nelson saw 10 targets from inside the 10 (5th) and five targets from inside the five (5th). While Nelson is still a strong option in one of the leagueís top offenses, there will almost certainly be regression to the mean Ė even if itís still a strong 11 yards per target and a touchdown every 10 targets instead of every six. As such, a sharp increase in volume would be necessary to sustain last yearís numbers, something thatís not too likely with so much talent on the team, and Rodgers willing to throw to whoever is open.

2011

Nelson was one of the Packersí four main receivers last year and could very well be one their top-two in 2011, thanks to a huge game in the Super Bowl and the decline of Donald Driver. Of course, despite Nelson's nine catches for 140 yards and a score in the big game, he dropped three passes (two of which were admittedly tough catches). Still, Nelson was easily the team's best per-play receiver other than Greg Jennings last year with 9.1 YPT. At 6-3, 217, Nelson's got plenty of size and good speed, and clearly Aaron Rodgers trusted him enough to target him 15 times in the biggest game of their lives. There's upside here if Nelson's role grows.

2010

Nelson will continue to return some kicks and compete for the third WR spot.

2009

Nelson will be in a training camp battle with James Jones for the No. 3 receiver spot in Green Bayís pass-friendly offense, although the end result may likely be a rotation between the two players. Once Donald Driver leaves, there will be an opening for either Jones or Nelson to become a starter, but Driver is still productive at age 34 and will keep the two youngsters on the bench for at least another season. Donít expect a huge increase from Nelsonís 2008 totals (33 catches, 366 yards, two touchdowns).

2008

Nelson was taken in the second round of the 2008 draft and will need to fight for playing time in a crowded wide receiver group. It's hard to imagine him getting much playing time this season unless there are a series of injuries in front of him, but he has a bright future.
