2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
12 months and one ACL tear ago Jordy Nelson was a top-2 fantasy receiver. Able to score from anywhere on the field, Nelson commanded double teams, and help over the top. His loss was a tremendous blow to the Green Bay offense, and put his career at age 31 at a crossroads. Despite the nature of their position, receivers don’t suffer ACL tears as frequently as other positions. The most recent example we have is Jeremy Maclin, who tore his ACL in 2013. He returned a year late and had a career year, but he was also six years younger than Nelson. On the other end of the spectrum is Reggie Wayne, who tore his ACL in 2013 at the age of 34. He returned the next season, but was a shell of his former self, and retired. Nelson is nearly 12 months removed from the injury, and until the start of camp has had a pristine rehab. He’s yet to practice because of “minor” knee tendonitis, and I wouldn’t feel comfortable with Nelson as my WR1 unless he gets in some quality reps with his team prior to Week 1. If this “minor” injury lingers more than a few weeks, proceed with extreme caution, otherwise draft with value and tremendous upside in mind.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Davante Adams may not practice until Saturday
Packers dealing with multiple WR injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jan 18, 2:00 pm

Green Bay Packers
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)

FFToday'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.


Injury Jordy Nelson has a small chance to play
Will likely miss Championship game
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jan 17, 11:30 am

Green Bay Packers
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)

FFToday'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.


Injury Jordy Nelson uncertain to practice Wednesday
Status for NFC Championship unknown
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 16, 7:15 pm

Green Bay Packers
Packers HC Mike McCarthy on WR Jordy Nelson: Not sure if he'll practice Wednesday but did workout today. (Packer Report)

FFToday'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
Misdemeanor possession in early September
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jan 10, 5:00 pm

Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana last month after a traffic stop and subsequent arrest 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)

FFToday'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.


Injury Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs
HC: "It will take a tremendous effort for him to play."
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 9, 6:35 pm

Green Bay Packers
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. (NFL.com)

FFToday'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.
