Jordy Nelson Fantasy Football News 2019

Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. Jordy Nelson, Marcell Ateman and Seth Roberts will again serve as Oakland's top 3 WRs.

Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He didn't practice all week, though, so we'd be surprised if he played. Look for Jordy Nelson, Marcell Ateman and Seth Roberts to again serve as Oakland's top 3 WRs.

Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He didn’t practice all week, though, so don’t bank on him playing. With WR Martavis Bryant (knee) also out, Brandon LaFell and Seth Roberts figure to serve as Oakland’s top 2 WRs.

Update: The Raiders have downgraded Nelson to out.

Raiders WR Jordy Nelson is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Cardinals after suffering a knee bruise last weekend, HC Jon Gruden said. The 33-year-old Nelson has no reason to push through this injury in Oakland's lost season. The Raiders will also be without WR Martavis Bryant (knee), leaving Brandon LaFell and Seth Roberts atop the depth chart.

The Raiders have traded WR Amari Cooper to the Cowboys in exchange for a 1st-round pick. That's a massive price to pay for a guy who's been more disappointing than not since the start of the 2017 campaign. Of course, Cooper is still just 24, has a 1st-round resume and has certainly flashed upside. This isn't exactly a great landing spot, though. Cooper will be the clear #1 option in Dallas' passing game, but the Cowboys rank 31st in pass rate. Plus, it tends to be tough for WRs to settle into new offenses mid-season. Consider Cooper a WR3 for now. Oakland, meanwhile, is left with Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts atop the WR depth chart.

The Steelers have traded WR Martavis Bryant to the Raiders in exchange for a 3rd-round pick, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Bryant struggled in his return last season from nearly 2-year absence, hauling in 50 of 84 targets for 603 yards and 3 scores. He's still just 26, though, and racked up 14 TDs with a 17.3 yards-per-catch average over his first 2 NFL campaigns. Bryant joins a remade Oakland WR corps with Jordy Nelson alongside Amari Cooper. Bryant figures to open the season as the #3 WR but could push for #2 if Nelson's decline continues.

The Raiders have signed WR Jordy Nelson to a 2-year, $15 million deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's certainly arguable whether Oakland upgraded or downgraded by going from Michael Crabtree to Nelson. The longtime Packer turns 33 in May and is coming off a career-low 9.1 yards per catch. The absence of QB Aaron Rodgers for 9+ games didn't help. But Nelson's 1.22 yards per route run in 5 full games with Rodgers ranked 62nd among 88 qualifying WRs, per Pro Football Focus. He should at lease soak up most the of 8.5 targets per game Crabtree averaged over the past 3 years, but Nelson should be considered no better than a low-end WR2 at this point.

The Packers released WR Jordy Nelson on Tuesday, clearing $10.2 million in cap space, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Nelson's production dropped precipitously in 2017, albeit without QB Aaron Rodgers for much of that stretch. The veteran will head into his age-33 season this fall, however, with an ACL tear and various other lower-body injuries behind him. We'll see where he lands, but it's tough to expect more than a low-WR3 fantasy outlook even in the best situation.

Packers WRs Jordy Nelson (shoulder) and Davante Adams (concussion) are out for Sunday's finale against the Lions. That leaves Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison and Michael Clark as Green Bay's top 3 WRs. Only Cobb can be trusted in fantasy lineups -- and only as a WR3 with Brett Hundley at the helm.

Packers WRs Jordy Nelson (shoulder) and WR Davante Adams (concussion) did not practice Wednesday. Neither seems likely to play in this weekend's meaningless finale. That'd leave Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, Michael Clark, Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis to catch passes from Brett Hundley.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson injured his shoulder in the 2nd quarter of Saturday night's game against the Vikings and won't return. He finishes with 3 catches on 5 targets for 11 yards. It's been a lost season for Nelson, who has struggled with the absence of Aaron Rodgers and perhaps a declining skill set. He turns 33 in May.

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.
