Jordy Nelson continues career-best season with 113 yards and TD


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson recorded his seventh 100 yard game of the season in Green Bay's 20-3 win over the Bucs.

Nelson had nine catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. Late in the fourth quarter, Aaron Rodgers connected with Nelson on the goal line for a 1-yard touchdown to seal Green Bay's victory.

Nelson now has 1,433 yards receiving on the year, the most in a season for his career.

Nelson and the Packers will look to take the division in Week 17 against the Lions. 


Packers' Jordy Nelson nearly catches go-ahead TD in Week 15 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson had some costly drops and was held under 60 receiving yards for the fourth time this season during Sunday's 21-13 defeat to Buffalo in Week 15.

Nelson dropped what would have been a 94-yard go-ahead touchdown on the penultimate play of the third quarter. He was targeted 12 times and finished with only five catches for 55 yards. He has 1,320 yards for 12 touchdowns on 83 receptions this season.

He'll look to bounce back in Week 16 against Tampa Bay.


Jordy Nelson posts third two-touchdown game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Packers wideout Jordy Nelson caught eight of 10 targets for 146 yards and two touchdowns Monday against Atlanta, his third two-score game this season. Nelson is up to 12 receiving touchdowns after notching six in his last five games.

Nelson hauled in a 10-yard score right before halftime. Early in the fourth quarter, he sprinted past the secondary on a double move and caught a 60-yard touchdown. That was his seventh career scoring grab of 40-plus yards, tying a franchise record.

Nelson led the team in targets and posted his sixth 100-yard game this season. He'll visit the Bills in Week 15.


Packers' Jordy Nelson scores another long one Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Packers wideout Jordy Nelson hauled in another long touchdown Week 13 against the Patriots.

Nelson only had two catches, but managed to break out a 45 score in the second quarter. With time running out in the half, Nelson managed to break free in the secondary. He was hit near the goal line, but it was ruled that he made his way into the end zone before going down. Nelson had one other catch, picking up 8 yards. He was targeted six times.

Nelson will look for more Week 14 against the Falcons. 


Jordy Nelson leads the way for Packers Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Packers wideout Jordy Nelson led the way again Week 12 against the Vikings.

Nelson didn't have a huge gain, picking up just 68 yards during the contest. Still, that was enough to lead the team in receiving on the day. Nelson, who has been a consistent deep threat all season, was mostly held to short catches. He averaged just 8.5 yards per catch on eight catches. Nelson was targeted a team-high 12 times, so Aaron Rodgers was trying to get the ball to his biggest playmaker. 

Nelson will look for more Week 13 against the Patriots. 


Jordy Nelson dominates Bradley Fletcher in Week 11


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Packers wideout Jordy Nelson found himself one-on-one with Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher several times Sunday, and Aaron Rodgers exploited the mismatch. Nelson burned Fletcher for a 27-yard touchdown in the second quarter and drew a pass interference flag on Fletcher in the end zone, setting up Eddie Lacy's 1-yard scoring run.

Nelson caught four of 10 targets for 109 yards, his second straight 100-yard game and fifth this year. Nelson visits the Vikings in Week 12.


Jordy Nelson racks up 152 yards, two TDs in Packers' Week 10 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson enjoyed a huge performance Sunday, catching all six of his targets for 152 yards and two touchdowns in his team's 55-14 blowout win over the Bears in Week 10.

Normally when a player posts a 100-percent catch rate, he's grabbing short, high-percentage passes. That wasn't the case with Nelson, who somehow got wide open twice in the second quarter for touchdowns of 73 and 40 yards. All six of his receptions came in the first half as the Packers built up a 42-0 halftime lead. Nelson and the Packers will look to accomplish more of the same in Week 11 against the Eagles, which the team's No. 1 receiver will enter with 56 receptions, 889 yards and eight touchdowns.


Davante Adams makes other Packers less predictable


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) For the second time in three games, Packers wide receiver Davante Adams went for more than 70 yards, contributing 75 on seven catches Week 8 at New Orleans. He also tied for the team lead in targets with nine.

The trouble for Fantasy owners is that this production came at the expense of star wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who had just 25 yards on three catches. Randall Cobb still had 126 yards on five catches, so Adams didn't intrude on everyone, but it doesn't change the fact that on a day when Aaron Rodgers threw for a season-high 418 yards, the Packers' top wide receiver wasn't really involved.

Adams clearly isn't going away, which is great news for owners in deeper leagues where even third wide receivers have value. But he may prove to be a pest for Nelson and Cobb owners.

You're starting Nelson and Cobb in Fantasy regardless, but don't freak out when they have a game like Nelson had Sunday.


Jordy Nelson turns in a dud Week 8


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Packers wideout Jordy Nelson turned in a rare low-key performance Sunday night in New Orleans. Despite Aaron Rodgers passing for 418 yards, Nelson caught just three passes for a season-low 25 yards. He was targeted five times, tied for fourth on the team.

Nelson drew some double coverage and often was shadowed by Saints top corner Keenan Lewis. As a result, Rodgers opted to exploit other matchups.

Nelson saw his four-game scoring streak come to an end. He's on a bye Week 9.


Packers WR Jordy Nelson scores sixth touchdown of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson scored his sixth touchdown of the season at home against the Panthers in Week 7.

Nelson got off to a fast start, scoring a 59-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the game. he caught three passes on the ensuing drive and was held without a grab the rest of the way. He was thrown to five times and finished with four catches for 80 yards and a score in a 38-17 victory. He has 712 receiving yards through seven games.

The Packers will face the Saints in Week 8.


Packers' Jordy Nelson cracks century mark, scores fifth TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson cracked the century mark and came down with his fifth receiving touchdown of the season in Week 6 at Miami.

Nelson caught a 9-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers on the opening drive of the game. He matched a season high with 16 targets and caught nine balls for 107 yards and a score in a 27-24 victory. He has 43 catches for 632 yards and five scores through six games. He has surpassed the 100-yard mark three times over the past five games.

Nelson will look to crack the century mark again Week 7 against the Panthers.


Packers WR Jordy Nelson makes only grab count for six


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson scored his fourth touchdown of the season in a 42-10 Week 5 victory at home over the Vikings on Thursday.

Nelson got Harrison Smith to bite hard on a double move and broke free to catch a 66-yard play action pass from Aaron Rodgers for a touchdown in the opening quarter. With the game well out of hand, the starters were benched in the fourth quarter and strangely enough, it was his only catch of the night. Nelson entered Thursday as the highest targeted receiver in the league. He was only targeted three times in a 42-10 victory.

Nelson has 34 catches for 525 yards and four touchdowns through five games. He'll look for more targets in Week 6 at Miami.


As Aaron Rodgers goes, so goes Jordy Nelson


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) If you hadn't heard, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was off to a slow start this season. I say "was" because he put a definitive end to that with his four-touchdown, 302-yard performance Week 4 at Chicago. And Jordy Nelson was there to bask in the glory.

Nelson had 10 catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns. In Rodgers' only other big game Week 2 against the Jets, Nelson had nine catches for 209 yards and a touchdown. The correlation is impossible to miss.

As Rodgers goes, so goes Nelson. Just like Rodgers' struggles Week 3 at Detroit were excusable given how the Lions have performed against the pass this season, so were Nelson's. And their struggles Week 1 at Seattle (more Rodgers' than Nelson's in that case) were a given.

The Packers offense has done as it's supposed to this season, and Nelson is as big a part of that offense as ever. You should count on him being a No. 1 wide receiver the rest of the way.


Jordy Nelson scores twice in blowout of Bears


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Packers explosive wideout Jordy Nelson certainly made the most of his game-high 12 targets Sunday against an overwhelmed Chicago secondary.

Nelson snagged a 3-yard touchdown pass off a fade route from Aaron Rodgers five minutes into the second quarter and added an 11-yarder in the right corner of the end zone at 4:28 of the third to give him three scores on the season. He was quite busy throughout in leading both teams with 10 catches for 108 yards. He caught seven for 81 yards in the middle quarters.

He will seek to frustrate another division foe when the team hosts Minnesota on Thursday night.


Jordy Nelson held in check Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was held in check Week 3 against the Lions.

Nelson led the team in receiving yards and catches, but both figures were off his normal dominant numbers. Nelson hauled in five balls for 59 yards. He was also targeted a team-high seven times. The Lions did a solid job against Nelson most of the game, making it tough for Rodgers to get the ball to his best option. 

Nelson will look for more Week 4 against the Bears. 


Jordy Nelson delivers career-high 209 yards in Week 2 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Packers wide recevier Jordy Nelson caught nine of his 16 targets for a career-high 209 yards and a touchdown in his team's 31-24 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Nelson already had 110 yards on the day before fooling a defender on a double move for 80 yards and a touchdown in the third quarter. It's staggering that he could have had an even bigger performance after catching just 56 percent of his targets. Nelson has been a beast in the early-going, racking up 18 catches on 30 targets for 292 yards and a touchdown. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 3 when the Packers travel to Detroit to face the Lions.


Jordy Nelson picks up yards despite tough matchup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson managed a solid game despite a tough matchup Week 1.

Nelson led the team in receiving, catching nine passes for 83 yards during the contest. He was clearly Aaron Rodgers’ favorite receiver, leading the team with 14 targets. The Packers moved Nelson away from Richard Sherman throughout the game, ensuring he would make some plays. Green Bay did not throw a pass near Sherman during the game. Despite Nelson getting more favorable matchups, the Seahawks did a tremendous job limiting big plays. Nelson’s longest catch of the night went for just 16 yards. He averaged 9.2 yards per catch.

Nelson will take on the Jets Week 2.


Jordy Nelson in for a tough test Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson should be in for a difficult test Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Nelson had a quiet preseason, catching just two passes for 19 yards. One of those catches wound up being a touchdown. Despite the lack of action during the preseason, Nelson’s upside with a healthy Aaron Rodgers is well-known among Fantasy owners. That said, he’s going to have to work for everything he gets against Seattle.

The Seahawks rated as the best defense in the league last year. They were strong in every facet of the game. Seattle held opposing wide receivers to just 14.79 Fantasy points per game, the second-lowest figure in the league. To make things even more difficult for Nelson, he’ll likely be covered by Richard Sherman. Sherman, by many counts, is arguably the best corner in the game. 

Still, it’s tough to pass up Nelson’s upside with a healthy Rodgers. The Packers boast an overabundance of weapons, and it’s possible moving Nelson around before the play could put him in a more favorable matchup. Even if Sherman covers him the entire game, Nelson is a good enough receiver to make some noise. While he doesn’t have a great matchup, Week 1 is not the time to take a player as good as Nelson out of your Fantasy lineup.
