2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Finished 2nd in fantasy points for WRs last year (depending on your scoring system, could have been 3rd)

(+) 15 TDs is off the charts

(+) Nelson is the tallest of the Packers wideouts, yet could also be the fastest as well as the one with the best hands

(+) Eight 35+ yard TD catches (in leagues that reward for long TDs, Jordy is insane!)

(+) 6'3, 217lbs and can run a 4.47 forty makes him the most underrated WR athletically in the NFL

(+) Aaron Rodgers is the best…and he seems to love himself some Jordy

(+) Tends to be underestimated out on the field – possibly because he's white

(+) The Packers have an easier pass schedule than most teams this season

(+) Nelson got to be so good that it looks like James Jones is on the trading block

(–) Was targeted over seven times in a game only TWICE all last season (eight targets in the first game, 15 targets in the last game)

(–) The Pack has a crowded receiving corps

(–) Randall Cobb and Jermichael Finley are due for bigger roles this season

(–) Aaron likes to spread the pill around, so Jordy stands to be inconsistent, just as he was last season

(–) Was only tied for 37th in targets with 96 total targets in 2011

(–) Caught four or less balls in 9 of 16 games

(–) There’s just no way he reaches the 15 TD mark again this year, is there?

Jordy has a four-year deal in hand worth $3.71 million that included $2.7 million guaranteed, a $1.7 million signing bonus, and $925,000 of his 2010-11 base salaries.  He also has the opportunity to earn another $925,000 if he plays 45% of the snaps on offense this year.  Not too shaby for a 4th WR!  Here's the shebang:

2010 - $475,000 (+ $87,500 roster bonus)

2011 - $565,000 (+ $39,000 roster bonus)

Jordy Isn't Done Yet, Could Improve on 2016 season

Pyro's take: Jordy did not feel like he was fully healthy until Week 10 of 2016.

Fantasy Goo: If you extrapolate Nelson from Week 10 on; he would have been in line for 121 catches for 1550+ yards and 16 TDs. Of WR’s who were targeted over 100 times on the season no player had a higher Success Rate than Jordy. Jordy has also shown an affinity to dominating over shorter CBs, standing at 6’3” Jordy has averaged 2.47 PPR points per target against CBs who are 5’11” or shorter, this is 0.48 points higher than when up against CBs 6’0” and taller.

Nelson Released from Hospital

Pyro's take: Jordy broke at least 2 ribs against the Giants, it is doubtful he will be ready to go this weekend.

Fantasy Goo: Rodgers has stated that they will need production from Geronimo Allison in Nelson's absence. Expect Rodgers to heavily target Cobb, Adams and Cook.

QB Matt Ryan (8,500FD/7,300DK) 6.5th best matchup.
RB David Johnson (9,800FD/10,100DK) 4th best matchup
WR Jordy Nelson (7,700FC/7,300DK) 6th best matchup

Ice Ice Baby

Pyro's take: The GB vs Bears game is set to begin at -2F. Yes that's negative two degrees.

Fantasy Goo: We haven't seen cold weather have a direct impact on Rodgers and crew, but could increase turnovers and special teams mistakes.

Snow to Play a Factor in GB

Pyro's take: There should be 1-3 inches of snow in Green Bay today.

Fantasy Goo: This should make it a more ball control game with less shots downfield. Bump up Randall Cobb in PPR and temper expectations for stretch the field players like Jordy.

LaFell outscoring Nelson

Pyro's take: I don't care if he has played 1 more game, seeing Brandon LaFell ahead of Jordy Nelson in scoring hurts my soul.

LaFell is getting the job done, catching passes and scoring touchdowns on a regular basis.

Eddie Lacy puts down the donuts and eats a TOUCHDOWN!

Eddie Lacy's powerful running early on helped propel the Green Bay Packers to a 20-12 win over the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night.

Pyro's take: Eddie Lacy's powerful running early on helped propel the Green Bay Packers to a 20-12 win over the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night. Lacy had nine carries for 45 yards, capped by a 1-yard touchdown dive on third-and-goal, to highlight a 14-play, 74-yard drive. "It shows what we're capable of doing," Lacy said. "And as long as we're all on the same page, we can pretty much have a lot of drives like that."

Fantasy Goo: Last year James Starks looked like the better back even though they both averaged 4.1 yards per carry. After all of the fat jokes we can hopefully have faith in Eddie Lacy putting that behind and focus on jump-starting the offense with the return of Jordy Nelson. The Packer offense was flat last year which should change in 2016 with the team being healthy to start the season. The Cheese could be back in business in 2016.

Jordy Nelson Tweaked His Knee During Workouts

According to

Pyro's take: According to NFL Insider Mike Garafolo, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) "tweaked" his left knee while he was working out, which led to the receiver being placed on the PUP list on Monday. In response to the media on his recent ailment, Nelson said, "It's not the ACL. No one needs to freak out."

Fantasy Goo: Jordy Nelson gave Packers nation and the fantasy football world a scare in the wake of his most recent knee ailment. Furthur reports according to ESPN's Ed Werder suggest that Nelson is dealing with tendinitis in his left knee and it is not currently "viewed as a serious" concern at this point and time. Monitor this situation closely entering fantasy draft season as Nelson will likely be one of the top 10 wideouts selected and a lingering injury could force his draft stock to drop.

Jordy Nelson To Start Camp On PUP List

The Green Bay Packers

Pyro's take: The Green Bay Packers have placed WR Jordy Nelson (ACL) on the PUP list on Monday. (NFL.com)

Fantasy Goo: Jordy Nelson finds himself on the PUP list as most expected entering training camp. Throughout the offseason, the 31-year-old wideout has indicated that his health is improving coming off of his ACL injury that sidelined him for the entire 2015 season and that he will be good-to-go for Week 1 although these rumors were never confirmed by the team. For fantasy football purposes, Nelson should be considered a mid-to-low end WR1 in 2016 who's upside runs in line with his health and the performance of Aaron Rodgers.

'If there’s a game Sunday, I’m playing’

Nelson, running full speed, caught passes from Rodgers in Thursday’s organized team activities at Clarke Hinkle Field

Pyro's take: Nelson, running full speed, caught passes from Rodgers in Thursday’s organized team activities at Clarke Hinkle Field. Rodgers worked with Nelson off to the side during a period midway through session. Nelson cut left and right, exercising his surgically reconstructed right knee. How did his knee feel afterward? Nelson offered just one word. “Great,” he said.

Fantasy Goo: Odds are that you need to move Jordy Nelson up in your tiers. These numbers might convince you. In 2014 Jordy caught 98 passes for 1,519 and 13 touchdowns. So, those boxes are checked. Next, his quarterback is Aaron Rodgers which places a check in that box. Explosive? Well, just about every year, Jordy has hauled in a touchdown from beyond 70 yards. Jordy and Aaron Rodgers surely are pissed off about the way their 2015 went. My money rides on both of those guys this year.

Jordy Nelson Ready Sooner Than Expected

Green Bay Packers

Pyro's take: Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ACL) said via ESPN, "if there's a game Sunday, I'm playing." Despite Nelson assuming he is ready to return from a severe ACL tear that kept him out of the entire 2015 season, the Packers will "play it safe" with easing the receiver back into football activities. Nelson was spotted catching passes from Aaron Rodgers after the team's Thursday practice.

Fantasy Goo: Jordy Nelson missed all of 2015 season due to a severe ACL tear suffered during the preseason. The seven-year veteran was sorely missed by Green Bay's offense as their once high-octane passing attack looked mortal during his absence last year. With Nelson returning, Aaron Rodgers will likely rebound to his elite form, which bodes well for the fantasy owners who will draft him for the upcoming campaign. Nelson should be looked upon as a low-end WR1 with the upside to reproduce the numbers he had in 2014, which the last year he appeared in an NFL game. Nelson caught 98 passes for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns that season as Green Bay's No. 1 receiver.

WR Jordy Nelsons On Schedule In Recovery From ACL Tear

Green Bay Packers

Pyro's take: Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said that star wide receiver is "right on schedule" in his recovery from a torn ACL.

"Jordy Nelson is doing very well. He's right on schedule I would say and he's sticking to the plan," McCarthy said. "He has to be smart in these times and just make sure we go about it the right way. We're focusing on more individual work with Jordy Nelson than put him in the group and the combination of team environment right now." Nelson suffered the injury in August of last year, so he has had plenty of time to recover. He should be full-go for training camp.

Jordy Nelson (knee) has been running full speed for weeks.


Pyro's take: “He will be ready a lot sooner than a lot of people think he will be ready,” fellow Packers receiver James Jones said. “The guy has been in here, putting in a lot of work. He sleeps with his ice machine on, he takes all that stuff home, he works hard. He’ll be back. I’m proud of him.”

Mike McCarthy on Jordy Nelson


Pyro's take: Mike McCarthy on not having Jordy Nelson:
"I thought we did a lot of good things from a coaching standpoint. I thought there were a lot of things you can feel good about. If I was to be critical, we didn’t handle the injuries. Jordy, the left tackle, you have to help people at times in each and every season. It’s part of your game-planning and strategic makeup. When we had uphill matches, we didn’t do a good job helping that individual. I don’t put Jordy in that category because he was lost in Pittsburgh in the preseason."

On Jordy Nelson getting back to top shape:

I think Jordy will come back better than ever. I had a chance to sit down and talk with him. He’s so far ahead with the rehab. He looks great. There’s no reason to think he won’t be as good as new.

Nelson tweaks his hamstring

It seems the hamstring twinge that kept wide receiver Jordy Nelson out of the Green Bay Packers’ exhibition opener was relatively minor.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that Nelson’s absence, however brief, exposed a potential weakness at wide receiver that could haunt the Packers during the regular season.

Prior to tweaking his hamstring, Nelson was outstanding, showing he’s worth every penny of his lucrative contract extension.

Pyro's take: Nelson is a stud of a receiver, and while this was a minor hamstring injury, it was still a hamstring injury. Receivers need their burst, and need to be able to trust that their legs won't let them down. Once a player suffers a hammy injury, it is always in their mind, which can lead to losing concentration because they don't trust their body. It is still early, and this could be nothing, it is definitely worth paying attention to.

Nelson Gets Extended

The Green Bay Packers signed star wide receiver Jordy Nelson to a contract extension Saturday.

The Packers have not disclosed terms of the deal, but a league source confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Nelson signed a four-year extension worth $39 million.

Pyro's take: Great news for fantasy owners and Packer fans alike, Nelson is a top 10 wide receiver in this league. When both he and Aaron Rodgers are healthy good things tend to happen on the field. Jordy has a knack for making his quarterback look good with an array of highlight reel sideline catches to choose from.

Nelson and Rodgers have proved to be a great pair so far in their careers and we should continue to see that magic happen on the field for at least the next 4 years

Jordy Nelson to play in week 1

It’s been easy to forget that Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson had knee surgery in early August and missed the balance of training camp.

He returned to practice last Monday, and a league source tells PFT that Nelson will be available to play in Week One at San Francisco.

Pyro's take: This is awesome news for a player that fell in drafts due to this preseason injury. Those owners who were lucky enough to have picked him up most likely have him as WR2 or WR3, so this makes him a real value, now that he is healthy for week 1. Nelson should be a full go in this game, although going up against the 49ers is a tough match-up. Nelson is still a nice WR3 for your team this week.

Jordy Nelson to miss the rest of training camp and season opener in doubt

Nelson's surgery was to clear up a lingering problem and done with the intention of having him ready for the start of the regular season. He probably could not have waited any longer for the fix without having to sacrifice at least the season opener.

"Fortunately with Jordy, his particular thing that we had to go and fix is something that we have some experience with with some other guys here," general manager Ted Thompson said. "So we think we can predict about the way it'll go, but you never know."

Neither Thompson nor coach Mike McCarthy was specific on what was ailing Nelson. His agent, Vann McElroy, did not return a phone message seeking comment. NFL.com reported it was a minor issue Nelson has been dealing with since his days at Kansas State.

"Our hope is for Jordy to be ready for the season opener at San Francisco," McCarthy said.

Pyro's take: This surgery for Nelson has a recovery time of 4-6 weeks, which still makes him iffy for the start of the regular season. This is a major blow to Nelson who looked like he was in line to pick up the majority of the targets that went to Greg Jennings last season. Nelson has the ability to be a top 10 receiver in the league, but nagging injuries kept him from reaching that level last season, and this is not a good start to the 2013 campaign. Nelson is still a good prospect to target, especially if he falls a round or two in drafts due to the injury. We will continue to monitor his rehab of this injury.
