Jordy Nelson WR GB 2 Months

Green Bay and Jordy Nelson have had conversations about a contract extension, but there is no timetable to get a deal done.

Nelson is entering the final year of a $13.9 million, four-year extension he signed in the middle of the 2011 season. That deal proved to be a massive bargain for the Packers. Nelson has posted two 1,200-yard seasons and scored 30 touchdowns over the last three seasons. Nelson is one of the top wide receivers in the game, and he should command near $10 million annually.

ESPN Packers blogger Rob Demovsky considers Jordy Nelson a candidate for a contract extension.

Nelson has one year left on his current deal at $2.55 million, which is an absolute bargain. Nelson inked a four-year, $13.9 million contract in the middle of the 2011 season, and the Packers have reaped the benefits. Nelson has posted two 1,000-yard seasons and scored 30 touchdowns the past three years. Expect him to command nears $10 million annually on a new deal. Nelson turns 29 in May.

Jordy Nelson caught seven balls for 62 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Wild Card loss to San Francisco.

Green Bay's offense looked dead in the water before parlaying a second-quarter Tramon Williams interception into Jordy's five-yard touchdown, giving the Packers a 7-6 lead. Nelson made the diving catch in 49ers top corner Tramaine Brock's coverage. Nelson worked both outside and in the slot, the latter area in which he played more than ever this season. With increasing versatility and an already highly polished all-around game, 28-year-old Nelson has earned WR1 recognition in fantasy leagues. He'll enter a contract year in 2014.

Jordy Nelson caught three passes for 46 yards in Week 16 against Pittsburgh.

Nelson was targeted just five times on the day. James Jones and Jarret Boykin combined to see 25 passes come their way. Nelson could have had a touchdown on the final play of the fourth quarter, but Matt Flynn didn't see him open in the end zone and decided to throw to Boykin instead. Nelson has been more WR2 than WR1 with Aaron Rodgers sidelined. He gets the Bears in Week 17.

Jordy Nelson caught five passes for 61 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 15 win over the Cowboys.

Nelson flashed strong hands all afternoon, but never more so than on his 13-yard touchdown, where he straight up stole the ball away from Cowboys slot CB Orlando Scandrick. It set the tone for Green Bay's wild second-half comeback from a 26-3 halftime deficit. With the Packers still somehow alive in the NFC North, Aaron Rodgers might finally be cleared to make his long-awaited return in Week 16. That would immediately send Nelson back to the WR1 ranks.

Jordy Nelson hung four catches for 85 yards in the Falcons in Sunday's Week 14 victory.

Nelson's big play came in double coverage down the right sideline, following a boot-action fake by Matt Flynn for a 46-yard hookup. As the Packers won on Sunday and remain alive in the NFC playoff picture, Nelson's fantasy arrow is pointing up with Aaron Rodgers' (collarbone) return a possibility for Week 15 against the Cowboys.

Jordy Nelson caught four passes for 58 yards in Week 12 against Minnesota.

Nelson was targeted seven times, finishing third on the team behind James Jones and Jarrett Boykin. His big catch was a 34-yard grab down the right seam early in the game where he stretched to his limits and hauled in the Scott Tolzien pass on third-and-four. Nelson gets a leaky Lions pass defense next. He'll be a borderline WR1/2, but would be a definite WR1 if Aaron Rodgers can play.

Jordy Nelson caught eight passes for 117 yards in Week 11 against the Giants.

Nelson saw a team-high nine targets in Scott Tolzien's first start. Tolzien was picking apart the New York secondary with some good intermediate throws to Nelson and company, but untimely interceptions did the Packers in. Tolzien is a heck of a lot better for Nelson's fantasy prospects than Seneca Wallace was. Nelson will be more WR2 than his usual WR1 self until Aaron Rodgers gets back. That could be next week against the Vikings, but more than likely will be on Thanksgiving Day versus the Lions. Nelson is still the obvious start in the Green Bay receiving corps.
