Packers | Aaron Rodgers had great chemistry with Jordy Nelson

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:12:47 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' passer rating when targeting WR Jordy Nelson in the last four seasons has been 150.2, 130.3, 111.6 and 128.2, according to Pro Football Focus.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers receiving corps is still pretty deep, but losing a receiver of Nelson's caliber for the year is a big blow, and it'll likely drop Rodgers behind Andrew Luck as the top-rated fantasy quarterback. Randall Cobb remains a WR1 and should benefit from more targets, while Davante Adams is now a legitimate WR3 for fantasy squads.

Packers | More on Jordy Nelson's injury

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:25:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) has a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but the MRI revealed all of his other knee ligaments are fine.

Fantasy Tip: Devante Adams likely will step in for Nelson this season, which will boost his fantasy value. He could now be a middle-round option in most leagues this this season. Nelson should be ready for next season if he does not suffer any setbacks and should be a solid fantasy option in 2016.

Packers | Jordy Nelson out for year

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:19:00 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is officially out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: This was to be expected, there had just been no official word yet. Davante Adams' fantasy value increases tremendously. He could put up WR2 production. Jeff Janis is a sleeper now.

Packers | Davante Adams next man up

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 21:30:50 -0700

If Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) misses the season, second-year WR Davante Adams will have an expanded role. He was already expected to have a larger role this year. "I like where I'm at but I want to keep improving every week. I feel like I'm in a good position, and I want to keep working and elevating my game regardless," Adams said.

Fantasy Tip: Adams should be considered a WR3 until he's able to prove he can take the next step on a consistent basis, but in the high-octane Green Bay offense he has plenty of upside. Look for him to soar up draft boards quickly and his $3,600 price for FantasyScore in Week 1 looks to be a bargain.

Packers | Ty Montgomery could see more work

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 19:50:42 -0700

Green Bay Packers rookie WR Ty Montgomery could play a larger role should the team be without WR Jordy Nelson (knee) this season. Montgomery has been a standout during training camp and will certainly see more snaps the remainder of this month.

Fantasy Tip: He's worth keeping a close eye on and should be considered as a WR4 or WR5 on draft day. There is potential here, even if he is just third option among the Green Bay receivers. At $2,000 in Week 1 on FantasyScore, he's worth sneaking into your lineup if you're looking for a low-cost option with upside.
