Nelson hauled in eight passes (on 10 targets) for 118 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson was by far the Packers' most effective receiver on a day where Davante Adams and Randall Cobb combined for four catches and 36 yards. Sunday marks the fifth time in the last six games that Nelson has accrued more than 90 receiving yards, and it is also the fifth time in the last six games that he has scored a touchdown. His proven rapport with Aaron Rodgers makes Nelson an every-week WR1, even against Richard Sherman and the Seahawks in Week 14.

Nelson caught eight passes (on 12 targets) for 91 yards in Monday night's win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson led the Packers in both receptions and targets Monday, when he topped the 90-yard mark for the fourth time in Green Bay's last five outings. Although Monday was the lone occasion over that span in which Nelson failed to score, he continues to be a target monster as quarterback Aaron Rodgers' favored wideout. With 12 more looks in Week 12, Nelson has now been targeted 108 times this season, leaving only five players with more league-wide, and his nine touchdown grabs still trail just two players.

Nelson caught three of five targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-24 loss to the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson's usage was curtailed as he saw a steady dose of Josh Norman, but he was able to score his ninth touchdown in 10 games on a 13-yard play in the second quarter. He has endured a few weeks with depressed yardage outputs this season, but his ability to execute in the red zone has kept his fantasy value high. He should be more heavily-involved next week against the Eagles.

Nelson turned a whopping 18 targets into 12 catches for 126 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 47-25 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

This was Nelson's third straight game with at least 94 yards and a touchdown. He doubled the target share of No. 2 option Davante Adams, though Adams actually led the team with 156 receiving yards. The veteran wide receiver's longest catch on the afternoon was only 20 yards, as he failed to find much room downfield despite his gaudy stat line. While the Packers should continue to implement a pass-heavy offensive approach, expect Nelson to see fewer balls moving forward as quarterback Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to air it out 51 times again.

Nelson caught seven of 13 targets for 94 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-26 loss to the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson stole the ball away from a Colts' defender in the end zone on his 26-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He remained involved throughout, leading the Packers in all receiving categories. The veteran WR had scored in back-to-back weeks, and has seven touchdowns this season. He'll look to stay on a roll next week at Tennessee.

Nelson snagged four of nine targets for 94 yards and a score in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

After a quiet Week 7, Nelson got involved early with a 58-yard catch. Nelson got the Packers on the board a few plays later, slipping between defenders as Aaron Rodgers scrambled - eventually connecting for a five-yard score. Nelson hasn't put up many monster games, having yet to catch more than six passes in a game and topping 100 yards receiving just once. He has still quietly scored in five of Green Bay's seven games - sharing the leagues lead in touchdown receptions with six. Expect that total to grow as Aaron Rodgers begins to find his groove.

Nelson caught only one of four targets for nine yards in Thursday's 26-10 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

On a night where the trio of Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery saw a combined 44 targets, Nelson was shockingly the forgotten man. His one reception prevented him from being shut out of the stat sheet altogether for the first time since November 4, 2012 in a game versus the Cardinals. Aaron Rodgers was simply able to find the aforementioned receivers on a consistent basis, but given Nelson's track record and rapport with the quarterback, Thursday's overall pass distribution has to be considered an outlier. Nelson will look to bounce back to his customary numbers when the Packers take on the Falcons in what could turn into a Week 8 shootout.

Nelson caught five of seven targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson tied a season-low in targets as he garnered plenty of attention from an improved Cowboys defense, and he failed to reach the end zone for the first time this season. Nelson still finished second on the team in receiving yards as Aaron Rodgers spread the ball around, but he is averaging just 62.4 yards through five games this season. Nelson has still been targeted a team-high 47 times this season and should be in for a bounce-back performance next week versus the Bears.

Nelson caught four passes for 38 yards and a touchdown on a team-high 13 targets in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson made a diving touchdown grab on the opening drive, but he later dropped a couple of passes and generally just wasn't sharp. He has still scored in every game this season, tied with Larry Fitzgerald at a league-high five touchdown receptions, even though Green Bay already had its bye week. Nelson has also impressed in terms of target share, accounting for 40 of Aaron Rodgers' 139 pass attempts (28.8 percent). However, there is some cause for concern, as Nelson has only caught 21 of his 40 targets (52.5 percent), also posting a lousy mark in yards per target (6.1), a statistic he has traditionally dominated. Regardless, the heavy volume and red-zone usage make him a highly valuable commodity, even though he doesn't quite look like the same dominant player that he was pre-surgery. The Packers have a Week 6 home date with the Cowboys.

Nelson hauled in six catches (on seven targets) for 101 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Seeing Nelson and quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the same page was a sight to behold. All of the receiver's damage was done in just two first-half drives. Nelson rambled 49 yards on a catch-and-run on the Packers' second drive and capped it off with an eight-yard touchdown. Three drives later, he caught a beautiful teardrop pass down the right sideline for a 17-yard score. Nelson appears to have his ACL injury from a year ago completely behind him, and could be in store for big numbers in the ensuing Packers' homestand. Green Bay will have a bye in Week 4 before having the Giants to town Oct. 9.
