2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
There was a time when an ACL injury to a 30-year old receiver would be a near death knell. Oh, how times have changed. Not only did Nelson return to the top of the receiver rankings by the end of 2016, he did so in dramatic fashion, scoring 14 touchdowns, and gobbling up 152 targets. His 97 receptions were only 1 off his career best, and while he saw a near 20% reduction in his yardage totals from his last healthy season, he most likely provided one of the best values at receiver last year.

With such a stellar return to form, it's clear Nelson isn't going to be a gamble pick in 2017. He's another year removed from the injury, played a full 16 games, and only got better as the season wore on. I think it's likely that he's reached his career highs, and he's a step slower, but he's Aaron Rodgers favorite target, especially in the red zone, and has such elite body control and route running ability that he's a lock to finish in the top-10. I do expect him to fall a few pegs, especially with Green Bay having a more balanced offense, and the addition of Martellus Bennett, who could soak up a few of those red zone scores. He's great value in standard and PPR leagues alike, and is someone I'd be happy to have as my WR1.
