2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


Over the past two years, Nelson has really blossomed into one of the top receivers in the league. His targets total grew by about 20 percent in 2014, from 127 to 151. Jordy has caught 67.1 percent of his career targets, which just screams, 'Give me the ball!' Last season, he set career highs in catches (98), yards (1,519) and targets (151). Over his last 60 games, Nelson has 43 TDs. In his career, Jordy has three 1,000-yard campaigns. He is coming off a year in which he posted seven 100-yard games, finished nine games with at least six receptions and ended eight contests with double-digit targets. In multiple games in 2014, the Packers didn't need Nelson much after the first quarter because they had already built such a big lead. Jordy has big-play ability and value at the goal line. I expect Green Bay to get its No. 3 wideout more involved this fall, but barring an injury, Nelson offers too much upside to have any regression. He has a chance to record at least 100 catches, 1,500 yards and 10 TDs. His early ADP is 13th overall, making him the sixth WR off the board. If you are deciding between him and some of the other elite wide receiver, just remember who is throwing Nelson the ball.
