|Iím not planning on focusing on many teamís fourth wide receiver
positions during this yearís Player Outlooks, but when you play
on a passing offense that the Packers field, itís worth a look.
Janis is garnering serious hype this offseason, as heís already
seen first team reps with Jordy Nelson sidelined. Janis was a
raw rookie out of Saginaw Valley State in 2014, and predictably
didnít see much time on offense (2 catches, 19 yards). But the
6í3, 220-pounder is doing everything he can to improve on those
numbers. While handcuffs are usually reserved for the running
back position, I wouldnít hesitate to add Janis as an insurance
policy if I was a Nelson owner, especially if you set your rosters
early in the summer.
| ACL tear confirmed for Jordy Nelson|
Out for season

|Green Bay Packers star WR Jordy Nelson will miss the entire 2015 season with a knee injury, the team announced Monday.
The Packers said in a statement that Nelson suffered "a significant right knee injury" in Sunday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

FFToday's Take: This was the expected result after Nelson suffered the injury Sunday afternoon. Although it is unrealistic to think the Packers will simply conduct business as usual on offense without Nelson, they are more equipped to handle this kind of setback at receiver than most teams. For fantasy purposes, Randall Cobb likely moves into the elite-receiver territory, Davante Adams becomes a high-end WR2 and Jeff Janis or rookie Ty Montgomery offers high upside in the later rounds.
