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.

Jordy Nelson caught six passes for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Eagles.

Nelson nearly hauled in a spectacular one-handed catch in the fourth quarter, but officials ruled that the ball was moving on replay. So owners were left with something of a dud despite another strong on-field performance from Nelson. He obviously takes a major hit with Scott Tolzien under center, but he's still among the best natural wideouts in the game while playing both outside and in the slot. The Packers will once again scheme to get him involved against the Giants in Week 10. He's a fine WR2 until Aaron Rodgers gets back.

Jordy Nelson caught four passes for 67 yards in Week 9 against the Bears.

Nelson was targeted nine times. He had a big, easy 27-yard gain on the opening possession on a route out of the slot and would have been on his way to a big night had Aaron Rodgers not suffered a left shoulder injury on that first drive. Seneca Wallace entered and the passing game went into the tank. If Wallace is forced to start another game -- or games -- every Packers pass catcher's value is going to take a major hit. Nelson has a favorable matchup against the Eagles next Sunday, but he'll be more WR2 than WR1 if Wallace starts.

Both of Jordy Nelson's Week 8 touchdowns came out of the slot.

Nelson is typically an outside receiver, but he's getting some slot reps with Randall Cobb and Jermichael Finley sidelined. "We went into the game trying to move Jordy around to get him some more opportunities," OC Tom Clements said. "He's a big target in there. It's beneficial to the offense for us to do that." By lining the truly special and complete Nelson up all over the field, the Packers keep double teams and extra defensive attention off their best receiver. There aren't more than five wideouts we'd rather own right now.

Jordy Nelson caught seven passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 8 win over the Vikings.

Nelson was targeted a team-high eight times and played the slot in the majority of three-wide sets. He scored on a contested 11-yard pass on the Packers first drive of the game and later had a 76-yard catch-and-run over the middle of the field for his second touchdown. Nelson has 278 yards and four touchdowns over his last three games and is locked in as an every-week WR1.

Jordy Nelson caught eight passes for 93 yards in Green Bay's Week 3 loss to the Bengals.

Today was Nelson's first game of 2013 without a touchdown, but the eight grabs were a season high, while he's cleared at least 66 yards every time out. He did typically excellent work near the sideline. Nelson has reestablished himself as a WR1 coming off his injury-marred 2012.

Jordy Nelson caught three passes for 66 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay's Week 2 rout of the Redskins.

Nelson had a third score nullified by a penalty. He whipped DeAngelo Hall inside for his first touchdown, and made an excellent, toe-tapping sideline grab for his second. Nelson was targeted just four times, but looked like his elite 2011 self for the second consecutive week. He's a WR1 in Green Bay's explosive-as-ever offense.
