2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
12 months and one ACL tear ago Jordy Nelson was a top-2 fantasy receiver. Able to score from anywhere on the field, Nelson commanded double teams, and help over the top. His loss was a tremendous blow to the Green Bay offense, and put his career at age 31 at a crossroads. Despite the nature of their position, receivers don’t suffer ACL tears as frequently as other positions. The most recent example we have is Jeremy Maclin, who tore his ACL in 2013. He returned a year late and had a career year, but he was also six years younger than Nelson. On the other end of the spectrum is Reggie Wayne, who tore his ACL in 2013 at the age of 34. He returned the next season, but was a shell of his former self, and retired. Nelson is nearly 12 months removed from the injury, and until the start of camp has had a pristine rehab. He’s yet to practice because of “minor” knee tendonitis, and I wouldn’t feel comfortable with Nelson as my WR1 unless he gets in some quality reps with his team prior to Week 1. If this “minor” injury lingers more than a few weeks, proceed with extreme caution, otherwise draft with value and tremendous upside in mind.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jordy Nelson's biggest concern is "conditioning"
A year removed from torn ACL, Packers WR is back at practice
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 23, 11:30 am

Green Bay Packers
Jordy Nelson practiced Monday for the first time since tearing his ACL last August 22. “It’s the conditioning more than anything, especially being in Jacksonville Week 1,” Nelson said. “It’s going to vary, and I’m sure everyone is going to pick it apart. If we miss a play here and there, it’s going to be because we missed all of last year and training camp. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: One year ago today, Nelson tore the ACL in his right knee and it cost him the entire 2015 season. Conditioning is a concern, but fantasy owners need to envision the stud wideout as a top option with oodles of upside.


Injury Jordy Nelson passes physical, removed from PUP
Officially returns following ACL tear nearly a year ago
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 17, 7:19 pm

Green Bay Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- All along, Jordy Nelson said his goal was to be back on the field for the Green Bay Packers' regular-season opener. It appears he has beaten that by a little more than three weeks. The Pro Bowl receiver passed his physical on Wednesday and was activated off the physically unable to perform list, according to the NFL's daily transaction notice. It came six days shy of the one-year anniversary of the torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered in his right knee. (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: As expected, Jordy Nelson continues to look like he will be at full health when the 2016 season begins. Nelson has ample time to work his way back into the offense. Fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to add the Packers' top wide receiver at his current second round ADP.


Injury Jeff Janis has fracture in right hand
Could miss significant time
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 13, 10:00 am

Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers receiver Jeff Janis could miss significant time the rest of this preseason because of the hand injury he suffered in practice on Wednesday. According to a source, Janis sustained a fracture to at least one of the bones in his right hand. Janis did not play in Friday's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns and was not seen on the sidelines during the game or in the locker room afterward. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Janis has been tabbed as a potential breakout candidate by some fantasy pundits but this injury will cool his buzz. Outside of Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, the next man up in the Packers receiving corps remains a work in progress. Davante Adams will get the first crack at earning the job.


Nelson's injury limited Packers' playbook
Rodgers comments on team's struggles to fill void last year
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 10, 4:37 pm

Green Bay Packers
With one of his favorite targets lost for the year, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was forced to run an attack that never found a suitable replacement for the subtle gifts Nelson brings to the game. "No, it didn't surprise me," Rodgers said of Green Bay's inability to fill the void, per ESPN's Jason Wilde. "The thing that he does is, we have specific packages for him that just, we didn't have a guy who could fill those packages. And it was a lot of play-action stuff, where we're taking eight-man protection and taking shots down the field. And we didn't have a guy who could take that spot." Said Rodgers: "I thought that collectively we were going to be able to fill some of that void. But again, the stuff that he does is tough to teach, and that's why he's one of the best in the business." (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Jordy Nelson is currently on the PUP list with knee tendonitis yet the team expects him to be fully healthy at the start of the season. He's a first round talent that will slip to the second round in most drafts. Better still, his return to the lineup will push everyone else down a spot on the depth chart. Randall Cobb and Davante Adams will have more space and of course Aaron Rodgers should "rebound" after seeing his stats dip in 2015.


Injury Jordy Nelson suffers "hiccup" with other knee
Not sure when he'll particpate in camp
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 26, 1:25 pm

Green Bay Packers
Jordy Nelson said he had a "hiccup" with his other knee, not the ACL knee. He said Week 1 is not in jeopardy but doesn't know when he'll practice in camp. (Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Nelson was placed on the PUP list yesterday who is recovering from a torn ACL but this new issue should give fantasy owners some pause. It sounds like he's on schedule to be ready for Week 1 but the sooner he can be cleared for camp the better. Expect Nelson's current ADP (WR7, 2.02) to slide a bit on this news.
