Packers | Aaron Rodgers, others excused

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:23:25 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and other select veterans have been excused from mandatory minicamp this week by head coach Mike McCarthy. WRs Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson were also included in that group. "The approach is different than the past," McCarthy said. "So, it's obviously tailored toward the younger players." QB Brett Hundley will get most of the work with what is left of the No. 1 offense.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers are playing in the Hall of Fame Game this preseason, so their training camp will begin a week earlier in July than it did a year ago. McCarthy wants to make sure his veterans are well rested. Rodgers remains an elite fantasy QB worth taking in the early rounds, especially since he'll have a healthy Nelson to throw to in 2016.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ready for games

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 13:50:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said if there was a game Sunday, June 5, then he would be playing in it. Nelson will not participate in any 11-on-11 drills until training camp just to be safe while he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Green Bay doesn't want to risk another serious loss before the season even starts. Nelson should be brought along cautiously through the rest of the offseason and the preseason. If he can avoid any setbacks, he's worth consideration as a low-end WR1.

Packers | Jordy Nelson runs route on sideline

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:13:51 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) did not participate in practice during organized team activities Thursday, June 2, but he did run a route on the sideline for QB Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is expected to be ready for training camp and checks out as a low-end No. 1 receiver. While it is worth monitoring his progress leading into the season after missing all of 2015, grabbing tosses from Rodgers as the big-play threat in a high-end offense significantly lessens concerns.

Packers | Jordy Nelson taking things slow

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:44:16 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said his surgically repaired knee is fine, but he understands why the team is limiting his work during organized team activities. Nelson has been allowed to run, lift and perform all of the drills the trainers ask him to do. Nelson has been running routes on a side field during practices. He said he will need to regain his chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers once he is cleared to practice again.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson appears to be on track for the start of training camp and should be one of the main targets for Rodgers in 2016. He should be considered a No. 1 or No.2 wide receiver for owners in most leagues.

Packers | Jordy Nelson is on schedule

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:48:38 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is right on schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It's still unclear if Nelson will participate in organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson's timetable isn't crystal clear at this point, but it seems likely that he'll be ready to go by the time the 2016 season starts. He's the Packers' biggest deep threat and still worth drafting as a WR1.

Packers | Jordy Nelson takes part in workout

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 10:38:44 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) fully participated in offseason workouts Monday, April 18, and said that his next step will be running routes. It is not known if Nelson will be able to participate in organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is working his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and should be ready for the start of training camp. Nelson will see plenty of targets in 2016 and could be selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 09:12:56 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is doing well in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, and head coach Mike McCarthy said Nelson has been running.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers offense struggled mightily all year in the absence of Nelson last year. With him returning, they should improve, and Nelson should return to WR1 status for fantasy owners if he's completely healthy.

Packers | Jordy Nelson running routes soon?

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 20:15:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said he has had no setbacks in his rehabilitation from knee surgery, and he will find out in the next couple of weeks when he can begin running routes.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Nelson remains on track to be ready for the start of the 2016 season, he is worth drafting as a WR1.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 09:15:47 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last year.

"I'm not worried about him getting back to where he was. He's way ahead of schedule. I've already talked to him, with this fifth preseason game, about how we play him in the preseason. He'll work some in the OTAs, but I don't see him having any limitations come training camp," head coach Mike McCarthy said.

Fantasy Tip: The loss of Nelson hurt the Packers offense all year, and they were never able to click. His return should do wonders for the passing game, and it should help Aaron Rodgers bounce back as an elite QB1. Nelson, if fully healthy, is a legitimate WR1, especially in PPR leagues.

Packers | Jordy Nelson has resumed running

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 22:00:15 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) started to run recently and he is hopeful of being a full participant when training camp begins this summer. "I think Jordy will come back better than ever," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "Just like you knew he would, 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."

Fantasy Tip: Nelson will be 31 next season, and coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, he is a risky fantasy pick at best. In past years he has gone in the early rounds, but let him be other people's risk that early. If he slips into the area of Round 6 through 8, he is worth a spot then if you have your less risky starters selected first.
