by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (2/20/14) 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 (1/5/14) 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 comes through with season-high 161 yards
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (12/29/13) 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 (12/27/13) 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.
04/08/2014 14:00 Offseason Extra: 12-team Fantasy mock draft
As we wait for next month's NFL draft to finally arrive, we thought we'd pass the time with an offseason Fantasy mock draft. As always, the results are interesting.
Fantasy owners might have to make a tough call on Packers receiver Jordy Nelson in drafts, though they won't have to do it as early as they did in 2012. Nelson found out in early August that he will undergo knee surgery and be out for 4-6 weeks. His availability for Week 1 is in question, but Nelson should be fine for the majority of the year barring a setback. He projects as a low-end No. 2/high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver coming into the year. Since he battled injuries in 2012 and with his latest knee problem there's some risk involved with drafting him as a starter, but he has the potential for 65-plus catches, 1,200-plus yards and double digits in touchdowns like he reached in 2011. He also plays in a dynamic passing offense with a superstar at quarterback in Aaron Rodgers. And prior to last year he played 16 games in consecutive seasons. Nelson is definitely worth drafting in all leagues by Round 6 or 7. (Updated 8/6/13)
