Raiders | Jordy Nelson proving himself

Thu, 02 Aug 2018 12:08:24 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson has been moving well, running polished routes and showing leadership in training camp. He is also developing good timing with QB Derek Carr.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson has been unable to get much separation from defenders in recent years, but he can at least serve as a possession receiver for the Raiders. Amari Cooper is still the receiver to own despite recent disappointments, but Nelson looks like an ADP value heading into the preseason.

Raiders | Jordy Nelson still a burner?

Fri, 27 Jul 2018 20:01:47 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson can still run and is "one of the fastest skill guys" on the team, according to QB Derek Carr, and head coach Jon Gruden said Nelson can still lineup anywhere and run any route.

Fantasy Tip: Although Nelson can't be expected to put up the WR1 numbers that he managed while serving as Aaron Rodgers' go-to target, WR3 production wouldn't be a surprise.

Raiders | Derek Carr talks up Jordy Nelson

Fri, 08 Jun 2018 21:10:44 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr praised WR Jordy Nelson's attention to detail and said he understands why Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers loved throwing to Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: If Nelson can continue to develop a chemistry with Carr, there is no reason he can't provide WR3 production in 2018.

Raiders | Amari Cooper learning from Jordy Nelson

Sat, 26 May 2018 20:55:56 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he has been learning a lot from WR Jordy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper is coming off his worst season as a pro, but the offseason additions of Nelson and Martavis Bryant could make life easier for Cooper. He is capable of flirting with WR1 status, and he should be available for a WR2 cost after his rough 2017 campaign.

Raiders | Jordy Nelson, Oakland agree to terms

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 13:08:26 -0700

Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Raiders) agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Oakland Raiders Thursday, March 15, worth $15 million. The deal includes $13 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson should be one of the starting receivers for the Raiders in 2018 after they released Michael Crabtree. He is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but should still be a reliable fantasy receiver. Owners in most leagues should consider Nelson as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

Raiders | Jordy Nelson not a sure thing for Raiders

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 11:20:34 -0700

Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) is not a done deal for the Oakland Raiders. The New Orleans Saints are pushing hard for Nelson and the Seattle Seahawks also remain interested.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is now one of the most popular names in free agency and is obviously in high demand. He has a lost a step or two with injury and age, but his size and speed make him a valuable asset in any offense. He'll be a solid fit in any of those offenses and can be drafted as a WR3 if he's healthy.

Raiders | Jordy Nelson to visit Oakland

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 18:52:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday, March 14, a source said.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders already have Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, but Nelson would be a nice complementary receiver. He is no longer a No. 1 receiver at this juncture of his career, but he still could be a useful player. If he were to join Oakland, they would have quite the potent passing offense.
