2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jun-25-2014 by Rob Warner
Those that targeted Jordy Nelson at a discount (missed four games in 2012) were rewarded with his career-best production. In his sixth NFL season, the 28-year-old finished as the 11th best fantasy WR in standard leagues, posting 85 catches for 1,314 yards and eight touchdowns. He's now hauled in 30 touchdowns over the past three seasons and should see even more red zone looks with James Jones now in Oakland and Jermichael Finley's status in limbo. Nelson is a borderline WR1 and is likely to be selected before the end of Round 3.
World Championships: Jordy rarely, if ever makes it out of the second round in our WR heavy format.
In Friday's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders, Aaron Rodgers went 9-of-20 for 139 yards and two TDs. He hit Jordy Nelson in the endzone on one drive, and had a quick strike to TE Andrew Quarless on another passing touchdown. The stats don't do the performance justice, as Rodgers and the rest of the Packers offense looked in midseason form and he's looked great all preseason. The Packers play the Chiefs next game but Rodgers will likely sit out.Fantasy Analysis:
It's very hard to decipher in fantasy if you should take Rodgers or Peyton Manning as the first QB in the draft. At this point you can't go wrong with either, as both look in tip-top shape and should each put up solid numbers week-to-week.
