2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Perhaps the most underappreciated elite-level-producer in fantasy over the past decade, Jordy Nelson only saw a low-ball option from Green Bay this offseason and ended up signing a relatively low-risk, two-year, $15 Million contract in Oakland. After being one of the league's top pass catchers throughout his run in Green Bay, one has to wonder - did the Packers cut the cord after realizing that Nelson simply doesn't have anything left?

While he was a bust for fantasy purposes on the season, Nelson was leading the league in receiving touchdowns prior to Rodgers' injury in 2017. From that point on, however, Nelson fell far behind Davante Adams on the Packers pecking order and became completely unusable for fantasy purposes by end the season. Nelson struggled to generate separation in 2017 and that showed in the box scores. Even if you remove the games with Brett Hundley behind center, Nelson accumulated just 318 yards in the seven games that Aaron Rodgers started for the Packers. If you extrapolate that out over a 16-game season, that'd be a pace of just 727 yards for the season. While he was a big time touchdown producer, we know that touchdowns can often be fluky and he was doing that with a one-in-a-generational-type quarterback in Rodgers. Now that he's in Oakland, there has to be serious questions as to whether or not Nelson still has enough left in the gas tank to produce without one of the greatest players of all-time throwing him the ball. Derek Carr is good, but he's not Aaron Rodgers good.

The bright side of things is that with Amari Cooper having some of the ugliest red zone numbers in football since coming into the league and Martavis Bryant potentially facing a suspension, there's a great change that Nelson sees a huge chunk of the red zone targets, and specifically the end zone targets in the Oakland passing game. Even if he's lost a step in terms of route-running and speed, Nelson still has great size and strength, which makes him a nightmare to defend for smaller defensive backs. His days of 15-touchdown seasons are probably in the past, but Nelson could still put up eight to 10 touchdowns this season, which would certainly put him in consideration as a weekly starter for fantasy purposes.
