|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.
| Nelson, Adams expected to play for Pack -- Sun Jan 22 8:30 am --|
|Green Bay Packers wide receivers Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison are all game-time decisions for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons but are expected to play, a source told ESPN's Ed Werder. Packers coach Mike McCarthy has indicated some or all of the players will be evaluated in pregame workouts before a final determination is made. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: We won't know for sure until gametime but it appears all three injured receivers could be active for today's game against the Falcons. Nelson will wear a Kevlar vest to protect his ribs. Given their status, it would be difficult for fantasy owners to trust anyone but Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb and TE Jared Cook in the passing game.
| McCarthy speaks on Packers receivers -- Fri Jan 20 12:30 pm --|
All three have a chance to play
|On Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison: "All three of the receivers will be given every chance to play in the game," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "They have work to do particularly in the rehab. If we know tomorrow, we'll know tomorrow. If we know Sunday, we'll know Sunday. One or two of those guys are probably going to have to work out Sunday." (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Jordy Nelson (ribs, illness), Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are shaping up to be gametime decisions. Nelson missed practice Friday with an illness.
| Davante Adams may not practice until Saturday -- Wed Jan 18 2:00 pm --|
Packers dealing with multiple WR injuries
|What's the concern level for Packers WR Davante Adams and his left ankle injury? "We'll see," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "I'm curious to see him move. I don't think he'll practice until Saturday." (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Packers are dealing with multiple injuries to their receiving corps as Jordy Nelson (ribs), Geronimo Allison (hamstring) and Adams missed practice on Wednesday. Nelson did practice on a limited basis but it would be surprise if he plays this weekend.
| Jordy Nelson has a small chance to play -- Tue Jan 17 11:30 am --|
Will likely miss Championship game
|Jordy Nelson is still considered a bit of a long shot to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
According to a source, the Green Bay Packers receiver has a chance to play against the Atlanta Falcons, but it's only a small chance. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Nelson suffered broken ribs during the Wild Card game against the Giants and missed last week's game against the Cowboys. Without Nelson, The Packers receiving corps is in capable hands of Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, TE Jared Cook and rookie Geronimo Allison.
| Jordy Nelson uncertain to practice Wednesday -- Mon Jan 16 7:15 pm --|
Status for NFC Championship unknown
|Packers HC Mike McCarthy on WR Jordy Nelson: Not sure if he'll practice Wednesday but did workout today. (Packer Report)|
FF Today's Take: ESPN reported Sunday there was "legitimate hope" Nelson would be able to return for the NFC Championship game, but Nelson himself also said he would just like to get back to "normal breathing", suggesting he is more of a long shot to play against the Falcons. Until something more definitive comes out, owners should assume an injured Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison will be Green Bay's top receivers as the Pack tries to pull another upset.
|Geronimo Allison facing marijuana charge -- Tue Jan 10 5:00 pm --|
Misdemeanor possession in early September

Allison was originally pulled over for speeding on Sept. 4, 2016 according to a criminal complaint obtained by the Journal Sentinel. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)|
FF Today's Take: The Packers are aware of this issue and it likely won't have any affect on Allison's availability for this week's game against the Cowboys. He should see a bigger role in the passing if Jordy Nelson (ribs) is out.
| Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs -- Mon Jan 9 6:35 pm --|
HC: "It will take a tremendous effort for him to play."
|Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs in their wild-card win over the Giants, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Rapoport adds it will take a tremendous effort for Nelson to play. Nelson spent Sunday night in the hospital after taking a vicious shot to the ribs from Giants CB Leon Hall in the first half of Green Bay's 38-13 win over New York. The All-Pro pass-catcher will work this week with the team's rehab group, per HC Mike McCarthy. If Nelson can practice successfully on Saturday, the Packers would consider playing him against Big D.
FF Today's Take: Owners should consider him highly unlikely to go. Randall Cobb exploded for a 5-116-3 line, while Davante Adams countered with 8-125-1, and both players will likely need to play at a high level against Dallas. Geronimo Allison will see the biggest increase in value, however, as he should assume the bulk of snaps created by Nelson's absence. He should be a low-cost, high-upside option in DFS.
