Jordy Nelson, not Randall Cobb, is Packers' No. 1 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) The Packers' official website considers Jordy Nelson the team's No. 1 receiver and Randall Cobb the No. 2 receiver. Nelson, who plays the "X" receiver spot, is the guy who "lines up on the line of scrimmage. He’s the guy who’s big enough and strong enough to get off the jam, and fast enough to defeat the jam and still get deep," the website said.

Cobb plays the flanker or the slot. "He’s a guy who plays off the line of scrimmage and is used in a lot of strategic ways," the report said.


Packers have to decide on future of Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) The Packers enter this season knowing receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson will be free agents after this year, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

And both receivers are hoping to get paid.

"I'm not a businessman, so I don't really know that side of that, that's what I have an agent for," said Cobb. "That's for the Packers to decide and to figure out."

Nelson was asked if he talked to his agent and gave any kind of deadline discussing, or not discussing, a possible extension as he prepares for the upcoming season.

"Obviously, you want to get it done as soon as possible," said Nelson. "But there are a lot of other people that are involved in that. It's a process and we'll just have to wait and see how it goes. I guess I'm more focused on hoping it gets done before we get to that."


Packers want to lock up Jordy Nelson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) One of the Packers' offseason priorities is to sign receiver Jordy Nelson to an extension, reports NFL Network. Nelson, who turns 29 in May, has one year left on his deal at $2.55 million.

He's caught 30 touchdown passes over the past three seasons.


Jordy Nelson paces Packers in receiving again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Packers receiver Jordy Nelson, who had 10 catches for 161 yards in Week 17, again led the team in receiving against the 49ers. He caught seven passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in the 23-20 playoff loss.

Nelson was targeted eight times, three more than any other Packer. He scored in the second quarter when Aaron Rodgers rolled out and rifled a 5-yard strike. In his prime at age 28, Nelson heads into the offseason with one year left on his four-year contract. 


Jordy Nelson was sick during 161-yard effort


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2013) Packers receiver Jordy Nelson caught 10 passes for a season-high 161 yards in the division-clinching win at Chicago despite being sick, quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on his radio show Tuesday. Nelson was throwing up on the bus ride home, Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The Packers host the 49ers in a playoff game Sunday.


Jordy Nelson comes through with season-high 161 yards


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson got off to a fast start as he cracked the century mark for the fifth time this season during Sunday's win over the Bears in Chicago.

With the NFC North title on the line, Nelson ended his recent drought of five straight game under 100 yards receiving. He was by far one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets in his return from a broken collarbone. He caught 10 of the 16 passes thrown his way for a season-high 161 yards in a 33-28 victory.

Nelson finished the regular season with 1,314 yards on 85 receptions. He'll look to keep rolling in the opening round of the playoffs against San Francisco. He caught 7 of 10 passes thrown his way for 130 yards and one touchdown in the season opener at San Francisco.

Jordy Nelson seeking fifth 100-yard game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson will be seeking his fifth 100-yard game on Sunday against the Bears in Week 17.

Nelson has gone five consecutive games since his last 100-yard game, his longest drought of the season. He caught three of the five passes thrown his way for 46 yards in a Week 16 loss against Pittsburgh. In a 27-20 loss at home against the Bears in Week 9, Nelson caught four of nine targets for 67 yards.

Luckily for Nelson, Aaron Rodgers will be back under center after missing seven games with a broken collarbone. Three of his four 100-yard games have come with Rodgers at quarterback. All of them have come on the road.

The Bears have allowed five touchdowns to receivers over the past four games. Opposing wideouts have scored 21.07 Fantasy points per game this season. Fantasy owners should consider Nelson as a must-start Fantasy option heading into the last week of the regular season.


Three Packers chip in to defeat to Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Top receiver Jordy Nelson was the most productive of the minor contributors for the Packers Sunday against Pittsburgh. He caught three passes for 46 yards in the loss, including a 7-yarder to start a vain last-ditch drive.

Also catching one pass in the game was tight end Andrew Quarless, whose fourth quarter snag went for 19 yards.

Running back John Kuhn pitched in with 12 yards on three carries, including a 1-yard scoring burst in the fourth quarter that tied the game at 31-31.


Jordy Nelson in for another 'Super' outing Week 16?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson had one of the biggest games of his career against his Week 16 opponent -- the Steelers -- and it happened on the biggest stage in football. Nelson totaled nine catches for 140 yards and one touchdown during a 31-25 win against the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV (Feb. 2011).

Nelson will face the Steelers Week 16 for the first time since his performance in the Super Bowl a few years ago, looking for another big game against the AFC North opponent. Through 14 games against the Steelers, wide receivers average 156.4 receiving yards and 20.1 Fantasy points per week, which is the 10th-lowest average. Wide receivers have totaled 12 touchdowns, with nine coming in the last seven games.

For the most part, No. 1 receivers haven't done overly well against the Steelers. Greg Jennings, Calvin Johnson and Josh Gordon have all totaled more than 20 Fantasy points, and Torrey Smith had 15 Fantasy points, but otherwise No. 1 receivers have had relatively quiet performances.

Also, it appears Matt Flynn will be back under center Week 16 and Nelson hasn't had great numbers in Flynn's first three starts. Nelson did total 12 Fantasy points last week, so Fantasy owners hope he can at least have similar success this week. Consider Nelson a No. 2 Fantasy wide receiver Week 16.


Jordy Nelson finally breaks post-Rodgers injury scoring drought


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Packers top wideout Jordy Nelson had not caught a touchdown pass since quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sidelined with a collarbone injury. That is, until Sunday.

Nelson finally broke the six-game drought on a 13-yard pass from Matt Flynn to open the scoring in the third quarter and launch a dramatic comeback that resulted in a 37-36 victory.

Not bad considering he had a miserable first half. Nelson dropped a pass, was called for interference, and was blanked until the second quarter. He had just two catches for 23 yards before intermission, then added three receptions for 38 yards in the second half.

Nelson and his Packers now await the arrival of the Steelers in Week 16.


Jordy Nelson should thrive against porous Cowboys


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) In one statistical area, Packers premier wide receiver Jordy Nelson has been virtually unaffected by the loss of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. In another, he has been a shadow of his former self.

Nelson has 28 catches for 397 yards in six games since Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone. He had 39 receptions for 649 yards in seven games previous - not a huge difference. But Nelson scored seven touchdowns with Rodgers under center and none since.

If he can't find the end zone Sunday in Dallas, he might not the rest of the year. The Cowboys own perhaps the worst pass defense in the NFL. They rank dead last in yards yielded through the air (3,880) and 31st in passing touchdowns surrendered (26).

Nelson remains a strong No. 2 or flex option in all leagues. And his Week 15 competition makes him a particularly favorable play, which should bring a smile to the faces of Fantasy owners trying to earn finals berths.


Jordy Nelson does OK with Matt Flynn


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was held without a touchdown for the sixth straight game Week 14 against the Falcons, but he at least had decent numbers with Matt Flynn under center, leading the team with 85 yards on four catches.

His four targets were tied for fourth-most on the team, but he made the most of what he got, his biggest contribution coming on a 46-yard bomb early in the fourth quarter. The 85 yards were the second-most he's had in six games, beginning with the one where starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in Week 9. Nelson had just two catches for 14 yards working with Flynn last week.

With Rodgers returning to practice Thursday, Nelson may have a chance to take another step forward Week 15 at Dallas.


Jordy Nelson suffering from quarterback change


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) In the last game Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers started and completed, wide receiver Jordy Nelson had two touchdown catches. In five games since, he has none.

His yardage has declined during that time as well. He had 117 on eight catches at the Giants in Week 11 but failed to reach even 70 in any of the other four. He had 14 on two catches with Matt Flynn at quarterback last week.

Flynn figures to be back under center in Week 14, which doesn't bode well for Nelson even with a favorable matchup against the Falcons, who rank 20th against the pass, allowing 247.8 yards per game. The last time the Falcons faced a wide receiver of note, they allowed 10 catches for 165 yards and a touchdown to the Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson in Week 11.

Obviously, Nelson's ceiling for this game is plenty high because of the matchup, but because of who's throwing him the ball, his floor is also quite low. Most Fantasy owners probably can't do much better for a second wide receiver, but in shallower leagues, Nelson is hardly automatic. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura barely rank him in their top 20 at the postion.


Jordy Nelson can't get going against the Lions


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Receiver Jordy Nelson was one of many victims of a Packers offense leaning too much on quarterback Matt Flynn playing behind a battered and beaten offensive line. Nelson caught two of four targets for just 14 yards in an ugly Thanksgiving Day loss at Detroit. It was just the second time this season Nelson was targeted only four times in a game. In every other game he had at least six targets. 

Nelson will attempt to get back on track against a woeful Falcons defense in Week 14. 


Vikings able to contain Jordy Nelson Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson had a relatively quiet performance Week 12 vs. Minnesota. Nelson finished with four catches for 58 yards during a 26-all tie.

Nelson made an early impact, as his first reception on the team's second drive was a 34-yard catch-and-run down to the Minnesota 16-yard line. Unfortunately, Nelson would finish the first half with just two catches for 36 yards on two targets.

The Packers made a change at quarterback in the third quarter from Scott Tolzien to Matt Flynn and went to a hurry up offense, but Minnesota continued to keep Nelson in check.

Nelson was targeted on a 2-yard touchdown pass in overtime, but he was badly overthrown by Flynn. Nelson finished with seven targets.

The Packers' next game is Thursday at Detroit (Week 13).


Jordy Nelson could be ready to end scoring slump


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2013) The last time Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson scored a touchdown, he scored twice during a Week 8 win at Minnesota. The good news for Nelson is the rematch against the NFC North foe is Week 12, so perhaps Nelson will put an end to his three-game scoring slump.

In the last few seasons, Nelson has performed well against the Vikings. In his last four games against Minnesota, he has 16 catches for 283 yards and five touchdowns. Nelson has just one career 100-yard game against Minnesota, but at least that was this season.

In 10 games against the Vikings, wide receivers are averaging 182.4 receiving yards and 24.2 Fantasy points per week, which is tied for the 10th-highest average. Wide receivers have totaled 11 touchdowns, with Nelson being the only receiver to record multiple touchdowns against Minnesota.

Nelson's big performance Week 8 came with Aaron Rodgers under center. Rodgers won't be available Sunday because of a collarbone injury, but Nelson has good rapport with Scott Tolzien. Last week against the Giants, the duo connected for eight catches for 117 yards. Make sure to have Nelson in Fantasy lineups Week 12.


Jordy Nelson cracks century mark in loss to Giants


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson enjoyed another solid performance as he cracked the century mark during Sunday’s loss the Giants in Week 11.

Nelson caught a 25-yard pass in the second quarter and a 29-yard pass in the third quarter for his longest gains of the day. He was targeted nine times and finished with eight catches for 117 yards (14.6 yards per reception) in a 27-13 defeat.

Nelson has four 100-yard games this season, including three over his last six games played. He'll look to keep things rolling at home against the Vikings in Week 12.

Jordy Nelson won't have an issue adjusting to new QB


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson will have to adjust to a different starting quarterback again come Week 11 against the Giants.

Just a week after Aaron Rodgers suffered a collarbone injury, backup Seneca Wallace went down with a groin injury and is out for the season. He'll now have to build good rapport with Scott Tolzien, who recently came out of the practice squad. With Tolzien under center, Nelson was targeted nine times and had five receptions for 48 yards against the Eagles in Week 10. He has been targeted at least eight times in four of his last five games.

Nelson leads the team with 49 catches for 772 yards and seven touchdowns on 72 targets. The Giants have not allowed a receiver to score a touchdown in the last three games. Opposing wide receivers have scored 18.33 Fantasy points per game this season.

Tolzien did not look bad in action last week, so Nelson's production shouldn't take a dive. Consider him a solid starting option in most Fantasy formats heading into Week 11.

Jordy Nelson held to 56 yards in Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson nearly found the end zone during Sunday's loss to the Eagles in Week 11.

Nelson nearly hauled in a 7-yard touchdown on a fourth-down play in the fourth quarter, but was unable to have complete control of the ball in the end zone. The play was challenged by head coach Mike McCarthy and the review was upheld. Nelson was targeted 10 times and finished with six catches for 56 yards in a 27-13 defeat.

Nelson has been held to 10 receptions for 123 yards over the last two games since Aaron Rodgers' injury. He'll now have to work with Scott Tolzien under center in Week 11 against the Giants.

Jordy Nelson seeking bounce-back game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson will be seeking a bounce-back performance without his starting quarterback at home against the Eagles in Week 10.

Nelson caught a short pass and stretched it for 27 yards with Rodgers under center last week against the Bears. After Rodgers left the game after the opening drive, Nelson only caught three of eight passes thrown in his direction for 40 yards.

Nelson will be facing a Philadelphia defense that has allowed 31.33 Fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season. A wide receiver has not scored a touchdown against the Eagles since Week 7.

Nelson may have a hard time with Senaca Wallace under center, but he's their primary target and should get enough targets, much like he did against Chicago. Our Fantasy experts have him ranked as high as eighth and as low as 19th this week. Consider him worthy of starting in most Fantasy formats.

Jordy Nelson's scoring streak ends


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Packers receiver Jordy Nelson appeared headed for a big game on Monday Night Football when Aaron Rodgers hit him for a 27-yard gain on the opening drive. Then Rodgers left with a shoulder injury, and Nelson suffered.

Though he drew a team-high nine targets, Nelson finished with four catches for 67 yards. His scoring streak ended at three games, and his season figures to take a downturn if quarterback Seneca Wallace is forced to start.

Nelson plays the Eagles in Week 10.


Packers using Jordy Nelson all over the field


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) The Packers are finding ways to get Jordy Nelson the ball despite the extra attention he's drawing with Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley sidelined. Nelson enters Monday's matchup vs. Chicago as the hottest No. 1 receiver not named Calvin Johnson.

Both his touchdown catches Week 8 came when Nelson lined up in the slot.

"He's just so consistent," coach Mike McCarthy told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "I like Jordy everywhere. Jordy just does it right all the time. He can play every position. He can run every route.

"His body language is something young receivers should take note of," the coach added. "He's an excellent target for a quarterback to throw to."

Nelson ranks No. 4 among Fantasy wideouts heading into Week 9. He's caught 16 balls for 278 yards and four touchdowns in his last three games. The Bears have been torched by No. 1 receivers: A.J. Green went off for 9-162-2, and Antonio Brown posted a 9-196-2 line against them.

With Johnson on a bye this week, CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers rank Nelson in the top two along with Dez Bryant.


Jordy Nelson rips Vikings for 123 yards, two touchdowns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Packers receiver Jordy Nelson toyed with the Vikings as he posted his third 100-yard game this season and 11th of his career. He caught seven of his eight targets for 123 yards and two touchdowns, giving him seven scores this season.

Nelson capped Green Bay’s opening drive with an 11-yard touchdown catch. He was tightly covered, yet hauled in Aaron Rodgers’ perfect throw. In the second quarter, Nelson lined up in the slot, adjusted to a Minnesota blitz and used his track speed on a 76-yard catch-and-run. It was his fourth career touchdown catch of 75-plus yards.

Week 8 marked Nelson’s third straight game with a touchdown grab. Nelson also recovered Minnesota's late onside kick attempt.

He’ll look to continue his tear against the Bears in Week 9.


Jordy Nelson looks unstoppable


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/25/2013) Packers receiver Jordy Nelson looks unstoppable heading into Week 8 at Minnesota. No one has been able to slow him down this season.

Nelson just took on a difficult cover corner in Cleveland's Joe Haden, but Nelson was able to score and reach double digits in Fantasy points for the fourth time all year. His lowest total this season was eight points in a standard league.

This week, Nelson faces a Minnesota defense that has allowed four receivers to score double digits in Fantasy points with six touchdowns allowed. Nelson also has a good history against the Vikings.

In his past three meetings with Minnesota, Nelson has nine catches for 160 yards and three touchdowns. In his last game at Minnesota in 2012, Nelson had three catches for 87 yards and two touchdowns.

We expect Nelson to keep playing at a high level in this matchup, and he's a Top 5 Fantasy receiver this week.


Touchdown highlights mediocre performance for Jordy Nelson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Packers deep threat Jordy Nelson put up his most modest numbers of the season Sunday in Cleveland, but he did remain a frequent visitor to the end zone.

Nelson caught five passes for a season-low 42 yards, but contributed to the victory with a 1-yard touchdown reception from Aaron Rodgers in the fourth quarter that pushed the lead out to 24-6. The snag was one of his two second-half catches.

A trip to Minnesota next Sunday night will give Nelson a chance for a statistical bounce-back.
