While itís not exactly fair to say that Nelson burst onto the scene in 2011 since he had showcased some playmaking ability during his first three years in the league, it is fair to say that he shocked those outside of the Packer Nation with his performance last season. Nelson finished as the 2nd ranked fantasy wide receiver courtesy of his 68 reception, 1,263 yard, 15 touchdown season. What is perhaps even more remarkable is that Nelson put up those numbers despite being targeted just 96 times, easily the lowest amount of any top 10 fantasy receiver. Nelson clearly benefited from consistently facing single coverage, hauling in eight touchdowns on passes of 36 yards or more. While Nelson may get more targets in 2012, expecting another 15-touchdown performance isnít very realistic. Itís also worth noting that Nelson also benefitted from the absence of Greg Jennings down the stretch, as he racked up 20 receptions for 387 yards and six touchdowns between Weeks 14 and 17. With so many mouths to feed, Nelson isnít going to get the 140 or more targets that many top wide receivers get but expect another productive season in 2012, one that will likely rank him as a lower tier WR1 or upper tier WR2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Packers aiming for 75 plays per game     -- Mon Jul 14 4:10 pm --

Broncos led the NFL in 2013 with 72.1
Packers HC Mike McCarthy and his quarterback have one primary goal in mind for 2014: run 75 plays per game. Do that, and everything else -- big numbers for Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and possibly one of the new rookie receivers; another 1,000-plus yard season for Eddie Lacy; solid pass protection - will fall into place. The first hint of McCarthy's plans came in February, when he declared that he wants all of his running backs to turn into three-down players in order to limit the need for substitutions, which, of course, slows down the game. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: It is always notable when one of the league's best offenses wants to do something in order to give its best players more opportunities. Rodgers, Lacy, Cobb and Nelson are already in line for a ton of production regardless of the tempo Green Bay operates at, but a few more plays per game may allow players like Boykin and James Starks to become spot starters in deeper fantasy leagues and enable the stars to bump up their numbers a bit at the same time.
