While itís not exactly fair to say that Nelson burst onto the scene in 2011 since he had showcased some playmaking ability during his first three years in the league, it is fair to say that he shocked those outside of the Packer Nation with his performance last season. Nelson finished as the 2nd ranked fantasy wide receiver courtesy of his 68 reception, 1,263 yard, 15 touchdown season. What is perhaps even more remarkable is that Nelson put up those numbers despite being targeted just 96 times, easily the lowest amount of any top 10 fantasy receiver. Nelson clearly benefited from consistently facing single coverage, hauling in eight touchdowns on passes of 36 yards or more. While Nelson may get more targets in 2012, expecting another 15-touchdown performance isnít very realistic. Itís also worth noting that Nelson also benefitted from the absence of Greg Jennings down the stretch, as he racked up 20 receptions for 387 yards and six touchdowns between Weeks 14 and 17. With so many mouths to feed, Nelson isnít going to get the 140 or more targets that many top wide receivers get but expect another productive season in 2012, one that will likely rank him as a lower tier WR1 or upper tier WR2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Rodgers gushing over Adams' approach     -- Thu Jun 11 5:20 pm --

Second-year WR had "humongous upside"
A little over a year after heíd challenged Davante Adams - although not by name - to step up his preparation, Aaron Rodgers couldnít stop talking Wednesday about the approach Adams is taking to his job now. ďIn my mind, he has humongous upside - and heís starting to reach that upside,Ē Rodgers said after the teamís open-to-the-public OTA practice. ďI think the opportunities are going to come for him. Heís got two great guys to play with. His attention to detail is very impressive and his approach." (ESPN Wisconsin)

FF Today'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     -- Wed Jun 10 3:38 pm --

Expected to be ready for camp on July 30
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)

FF Today'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.
