2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
After his All-Pro 2014 season, Nelson is firmly entrenched as a top flight NFL receiver. Fantasy owners have basked in the glow of two straight dominant seasons , where Nelson has been targeted 277 times, caught 183 passes for 2,833 yards and found the end-zone 21 times. He’s one of the more fundamentally sound receivers in the league, able to take slants and curls for long gains, dominate along the sideline on fade and back-shoulder routes, and take slower corners and safeties deep down the field. He’s the favorite target of an All-World quarterback on the best passing offense in the league. Good golly, what more could you want? Before we all drown in the overwhelming praise for Nelson, let’s take a quick look at a potentially big red flag.

Nelson underwent a “minor clean-up procedure” on his hip this offseason, and was off his feet for several months. Early OTA (and intrasquad softball game) reports have Nelson right on track from his recovery, but I’m not nearly naďve enough to consider any type of hip procedure “minor”. Keep a close eye on Nelson’s practice reps this summer, as the hip is an area of the body that takes a lot of abuse, and is key to a receiver’s ability to get into and out of breaks. Hip injuries can linger, and may limit Nelson early in the season as he rounds into shape. Don’t be surprised if Nelson’s catch and yardage numbers slip a bit from last year’s pace, as he falls from the top-5.

News From The Past 90 Days
Rodgers gushing over Adams' approach
Second-year WR had "humongous upside"
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jun 11, 5:20 pm

Green Bay Packers
A little over a year after he’d challenged Davante Adams - although not by name - to step up his preparation, Aaron Rodgers couldn’t stop talking Wednesday about the approach Adams is taking to his job now. “In my mind, he has humongous upside - and he’s starting to reach that upside,” Rodgers said after the team’s open-to-the-public OTA practice. “I think the opportunities are going to come for him. He’s got two great guys to play with. His attention to detail is very impressive and his approach." (ESPN Wisconsin)

FFToday's Take: Let's not forget that two seasons ago, Rodgers helped then-third receiver James Jones catch an NFL-high 14 touchdown passes. Even though some of that was due to the fact Jordy Nelson missed four games that season, the point to be made is that Rodgers can support three fantasy receivers. Although his production figures to be inconsistent again in 2015 behind Nelson and Cobb, the second-year wideout should expect a fairly sizable increase from his 38-446-3 rookie line.


Injury Jordy Nelson returns to individual drills
Expected to be ready for camp on July 30
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 10, 3:38 pm

Green Bay Packers
All along, the plan for Jordy Nelson was to be full-go by the start of the Green Bay Packers' training camp on July 30. Nelson took another step in that direction this week, when he practiced for the first time since his offseason hip surgery. The Pro Bowl receiver took part in individual drills during Wednesday's organized team activities (OTAs). (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Nelson sat out of team drills but is apparently on schedule with his rehab. Nelson is coming off a career year (98-1519-13) and will have WR1 value in fantasy drafts. His current ADP sits at 2.07 (WR No.7) in 12-team leagues.
