2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
“White Chocolate” was once again a sweet treat for fantasy owners in 2013. The king of the sideline toe tap combines elite body control, precise route running and deceptive speed to be considered a perennial top pick at wide receiver. Even without Aaron Rodgers for a long stretch of the season, Nelson was able to improve on his No. 11 ranking from 2012, while setting career highs in catches (85) and yards (1,314). With the loss of Greg Jennings and James Jones, Nelson remains Rodgers' most familiar and reliable target. Nelson's effective back-shoulder fade and ability to take short screens long distances make him a consistent fantasy wide receiver fixture, as long as Rodgers is throwing him the ball, which may not for long. Nelson is entering the last year of his contract and remains in negotiations for an extension. Constantly fighting and clawing for respect since drafted out of Kansas State, Nelson isn't likely to see a spike in production due to contract motivations. He could expect Rodgers to throw him the ball for 16 games. Nelson racked up four of his five, 100-yard games and seven of his eight touchdowns with Rodgers behind center. While the outside receiver in the Packers West Coast system doesn't usually flirt with extremely high catch totals, Nelson is a strong bet to approach his career-high 15 touchdown total from 2011. With the return of a healthy Randall Cobb and a more balanced offensive attack, Nelson's yardage and catch totals could dip slightly, with an uptick in touchdowns. Because he does more with less – with the second-lowest number of targets for a receiver in the top 15 – and plays with one of the league's best quarterbacks, Nelson could give you WR1 value at a WR2 price.

Comment: Nelson may see a dip in reception totals but is still a solid WR2 with WR1 upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Nelson "superlative" in Packers camp
Cobb has "looked rather common"
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 7, 3:40 pm

Green Bay Packers
After closely observing Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb during the first two weeks of training camp, it's become clearer than ever that GM Ted Thompson, coach Mike McCarthy and VP Russ Ball prioritized correctly at wide receiver. Nelson has established himself as a great player. His day-in, day-out superlative play in practice this summer only reaffirmed his primacy in Green Bay. But based on the small sample size of the opening 10 practices of camp, Cobb has looked rather common based on his 2012 level of play. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)

FFToday's Take: It has been speculated that rookie second-rounder Davante Adams' future might be in the slot, which could make this something of a make-or-break year for Cobb in Green Bay as he enters the final season of his rookie contract. Nelson's camp performance should come as no surprise; he is one of the most efficient receivers in football and should be poised for another mid-level WR1 season as Aaron Rodgers' most dependable target.


Packers aiming for 75 plays per game
Broncos led the NFL in 2013 with 72.1
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 14, 4:10 pm

Green Bay Packers
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)

FFToday'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.
