Jordy Nelson Fantasy Football News 2017

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (back) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s game in Minnesota. Nelson could see a bunch of CB Xavier Rhodes but remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's listed on the injury report with a back issue, rather than the previously reported hamstring. Regardless, Nelson is on track to play against the Vikings this weekend. He'll see plenty of shutdown CB Xavier Rhodes in that one, but Nelson is worth keeping in fantasy lineups.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson was on the sidelines for the final drive of yesterday's win over the Cowboys with a hamstring injury, according to NFL.com's Michael Silver. Neither Nelson nor HC Mike McCarthy had an update after the game. The fact that Nelson couldn't be out there at such a crucial time, though, suggests that this is something we'll need to monitor closely this week.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) is active for today’s game against the Bengals. He was a full-go in practice all week and shouldn’t be limited in this one. Fire him up as a WR1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) is expected to play against the Bengals today. He's listed as questionable but practiced in full all week. Nelson is safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. He put in a full week of practice, though, and is expected to play. We’d feel safe getting Nelson into fantasy lineups, despite the 4:25 pm ET kickoff.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice and sounded optimistic about his Week 3 status afterward. “Today obviously it feels a lot better than it did on Sunday night,” Nelson said. “Everything’s headed in the right direction. Feel good -- better than what probably I think I and some other people in this building thought I would, so we’re progressing the right way. It was great to get back out there and run around, and everything felt good.” Barring some sort of setback, Nelson should be good to go for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) is practicing on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. He'll likely be listed as limited, but this puts him on track to play against the Bengals this weekend. We'll continue to keep tabs on his status.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) "50/50" for this weekend's game against the Bengals. Schefter also confirmed that Nelson's injury is not serious, so he shouldn't be looking at more than a 1-game absence. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation throughout the week. Packers-Bengals doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday.

The Packers don't believe WR Jordy Nelson's quad injury is serious, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Nelson was scheduled for additional testing on Monday, but HC Mike McCarthy gave no update at his press conference. Our next hint might not come until Green Bay returns to practice on Wednesday.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson injured his quad in the 1st quarter of Sunday night's game against the Falcons. He's officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates.

Packers WRs Jordy Nelson (ribs), Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Falcons. All 3 guys are risk/reward DFS plays at their respective price tags.

Packers WRs Jordy Nelson (ribs), Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are all expected to play against the Falcons today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Adams and Allison seemed likely to suit up all along, but Nelson's availability just 2 weeks after breaking 2 ribs is a surprise. He'll reportedly play with military-grade kevlar padding to protect his ribs. All 3 of these guys are risk/reward DFS plays at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Packers WRs Jordy Nelson (ribs), Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are all listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Adams and Allison didn't practice all week. Nelson put in limited workouts on Wednesday and Thursday before sitting out on Friday, reportedly due to an illness. HC Mike McCarthy said Friday morning that all 3 guys could be game-time decisions. We'll find out their statuses by 1:30 pm ET on Sunday.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) practiced without pads on Thursday. As ESPN's Rob Demovsky confirms, it likely means Nelson has yet to be cleared for contact. He still has 3 days to get there, but we're not holding our breath. WRs Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) have yet to practice this week but seem to have a better chance than Nelson of playing against the Falcons this weekend.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky hears there's "only a small chance" Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) plays against the Falcons on Sunday. Broken ribs generally take about 6 weeks to heal, so it's tough to see Nelson getting cleared just 2 weeks after his injury. "Can't tell you if Jordy's going to practice Wednesday, but he did all the work in the [regeneration] workout today," HC Mike McCarthy said Monday. "So that's a good sign." Perhaps Nelson could return if Green Bay reaches the Super Bowl, but look for Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison to serve as the top 3 WRs in Atlanta. TE Jared Cook should also continue to play a big role in the passing game.
