2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
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
Nelson "superlative" in Packers camp     -- Thu Aug 7 3:40 pm --

Cobb has "looked rather common"
After closely observing Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb during the first two weeks of training camp, it's become clearer than ever that GM Ted Thompson, coach Mike McCarthy and VP Russ Ball prioritized correctly at wide receiver. Nelson has established himself as a great player. His day-in, day-out superlative play in practice this summer only reaffirmed his primacy in Green Bay. But based on the small sample size of the opening 10 practices of camp, Cobb has looked rather common based on his 2012 level of play. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)

FF Today's Take: It has been speculated that rookie second-rounder Davante Adams' future might be in the slot, which could make this something of a make-or-break year for Cobb in Green Bay as he enters the final season of his rookie contract. Nelson's camp performance should come as no surprise; he is one of the most efficient receivers in football and should be poised for another mid-level WR1 season as Aaron Rodgers' most dependable target.
Packers aiming for 75 plays per game     -- Mon Jul 14 4:10 pm --

Broncos led the NFL in 2013 with 72.1
Packers HC Mike McCarthy and his quarterback have one primary goal in mind for 2014: run 75 plays per game. Do that, and everything else -- big numbers for Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and possibly one of the new rookie receivers; another 1,000-plus yard season for Eddie Lacy; solid pass protection - will fall into place. The first hint of McCarthy's plans came in February, when he declared that he wants all of his running backs to turn into three-down players in order to limit the need for substitutions, which, of course, slows down the game. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: It is always notable when one of the league's best offenses wants to do something in order to give its best players more opportunities. Rodgers, Lacy, Cobb and Nelson are already in line for a ton of production regardless of the tempo Green Bay operates at, but a few more plays per game may allow players like Boykin and James Starks to become spot starters in deeper fantasy leagues and enable the stars to bump up their numbers a bit at the same time.
