2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


In 2013 and 2014, Nelson blossomed into one of the top receivers in the league. His targets grew by about 20 percent in 2014 (151 - 127 in 2013). Jordy has caught 67.1 percent targets in his career, which just screams 'get me the ball.' He set career highs in catches (98), yards (1519), and targets (151) in 2014. Over his last 60 games, Nelson has 43 TDs. In his career, Jordy has three 1000+ receiving yards. He had seven games with over 100 yards receiving and eight games with double-digit targets in his last year played. In multiple games in 2014, the Packers didn't need Nelson in the passing game after the first quarter. He had nine games with six catches or more. Jordy has big play ability and value at the goal line. Jordy missed all of the 2015 season due a torn ACL in his right knee. He appears to be healthy, and Rodgers needs him to plays well to upgrade the passing game. Nelson will start the year at age 31 so he's far from a slam dunk as he may lose some speed and explosiveness. Jordy has a top 10 WR opportunity in 2016 with a chance at 100+ catches for 1500+ yards and double digit TDs. His early ADP is 18 as the 10th WR off the board.

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
1.11 Jerry Colvin - My real plan with everyone nabbing WR at an alarming rate was to grab DeAndre Hopkins or Allen Robinson, but they fell before my turn to pick. So, when my turn came I felt the best viable option left on the board was Jordy Nelson. With Aaron Rodgers to throw to him it seemed like a good choice.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
2.10 Roto Experts - Joe Gallina - Jordy Nelson is healthy and as Aaron Rodgers’ favorite receiver, he’ll score double digit touchdowns. His return will jumpstart the Packers’ offense.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
2.03 So-Called Fantasy Experts - David Gonos - Just so many wide receivers taken in first 14 picks, I was forced to go with a stud coming off an injury. Aaron Rodgers' undisputed favorite target - especially in the end zone.
