Nelson had nine catches for 209 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Jets.

Nelson's beautiful 80-yard touchdown late in the third quarter essentially won the game, breaking a 24-24 tie. He was surprisingly inefficient, catching just nine of the 16 passes thrown his way, but fantasy owners can't complain with a 200-yard performance.

Nelson had nine catches for 83 yards on 14 targets in Thursday's 36-16 loss to the Seahawks.

It was an uncharacteristic statistical performance for Nelson, who has largely made a living by turning in excellent efficiency stats on middling volume. Of course, he won't have to play the Seahawks every week, so the big plays and touchdowns should come soon enough. Just don't expect a ton of targets on a weekly basis, as the Packers essentially ignored Jarrett Boykin (zero targets) on Thursday, matching up their third wideout against stud left cornerback Richard Sherman. Taking the opponent into account, both Nelson and Randall Cobb (6-58-1) got off to decent starts this season. There should be more yardage for the taking next week against the Jets.

Jordy Nelson's four-year, $39 million extension is really only a two-year commitment by the Packers.

Nelson is safe through 2015 due to the proration of his $11.5 million signing bonus, but that is the only guaranteed portion of the deal. Nelson's salary cap number jumps from $4.6 million in 2015 to $8.8 million in 2016, at which point he will be entering his age-31 season with a non-guaranteed salary of $5.5 million. Because Nelson was already under contract with the Packers for 2014, the overall max value of the deal is $43 million across five seasons.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports walk-year WR Jordy Nelson is seeking "at least" $10 million per season in long-term talks.

Nelson has no intention of handing out another discount. Nelson has been one of the league's most underpaid players since signing his four-year, $13.989 million deal in the fall of 2011. The $10 million demand shouldn't surprise the Packers, who have roughly $13 million in cap space. A deal could be worked out before Week 1.
