While it’s 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 isn’t very realistic. It’s 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 isn’t 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.

Injury Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule on ACL rehab     -- Mon Jan 18 8:55 pm --

"Looks great" five months after suffering year-ending injury
McCarthy also commented on Jordy Nelson. The Packers wide receiver suffered a significant right knee injury in the Packers preseason matchup versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was out for the season. Mike McCarthy said he fells that Nelson will come back next season better than ever. The coach said Nelson is “so far ahead with rehab,” and that he “looks great.” (Fox6now.com)

FF Today's Take: While Nelson's absence wasn't the only problem Green Bay faced on offense this year, it proved to be the hardest one to overcome. Randall Cobb disappointed as the lead receiver while Davante Adams failed to live up to Aaron Rodgers' expectations during a injury-ruined sophomore season. Nelson will be 31 in May and is coming off a major knee injury, but he will be over 12 months into his recovery by next September. He should be considered a WR2 with upside in 2016.
