by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson had a productive showing Friday night against the Raiders in preseason action.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Packers receiver Jordy Nelson, who missed the opening preseason game with a hamstring injury, will participate in a short closed practice on Friday before departing for St. Louis. The team will soon determine whether he is fit to play against the Rams on Saturday, ESPN reports.

"Jordy is on course to practice tomorrow," coach Mike McCarthy said. "He practiced yesterday. Once we get through practice, we’ll determine the final play time expectations for all of our guys. But he looks good."

Report: Jordy Nelson comes to four-year agreement


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Packers prolific wide receiver Jordy Nelson has signed a four-year contract for $39 million with $14.2 million guaranteed, per NFL Network. Nelson had asked for $10 million a year.

The 29-year-old veteran managed arguably his finest season in 2013 with 85 catches for 1,314 yards and eight touchdowns.


Report: Jordy Nelson seeking at least $10 million annually


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Packers receiver Jordy Nelson, who's entering the last year of his deal, wants at least $10 million annually in a new contract, reports ESPN.com. Nelson will earn $3.5 million this season.

Nelson will be looking for more than Atlanta's Roddy White, who signed a four-year extension Thursday that is reportedly worth up to $30 million with $18 million guaranteed.


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).
