David Nelson WR NYJ 2 Days

Nelson is dealing with what coach Rex Ryan referred to as a "pretty good" ankle sprain, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

With Nelson hurting and fellow wideout Jalen Saunders having been waived, the Jets signed T.J. Graham and Chris Owusu on Monday to bolster their receiving corps.

Nelson (ankle) will not return to Sunday's game against the Lions, the New York Daily News reports.

Nelson caught one pass for seven yards on his only target before suffering an ankle injury Sunday. With him now ruled out, Greg Salas should fill the Jets' No. 3 wideout role.

Nelson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Lions with an ankle injury, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Prior to his his exit from Sunday's game, Nelson had recorded one catch for seven yards on his only target.

Nelson (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

With five catches for 38 yards over the Jets' first three contests, Nelson is not a high-percentage play in Week 4, though he could see added work Sunday in the event that fellow wideout Eric Decker is limited at all.

Nelson (illness) is probable for Sunday's game against the Lions, the Jets' official site reports.

Nelson should be a go Sunday after practicing fully Friday, but with five catches for 38 yards over the Jets' first three contests, he'd be a speculative play in Week 4, especially if fellow WR Eric Decker suits up Sunday.

Nelson (illness) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

We'll revisit Nelson's status Friday, though with five catches for 38 yards over the Jets' first three contests, the wideout is only on the radar in deeper formats.

Nelson (illness) did not practice Wednesday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

With five catches for 38 yards over the Jets' first three games, Nelson is only of note in deeper formats, though his Week 4 status is of import to the Jets, with fellow wideout Eric Decker dealing with a hamstring issue.

Nelson had three catches for 15 yards on seven targets in Monday's 27-19 loss to the Bears.

Nelson played quite a few snaps because Eric Decker (hamstring) was unable to do so. While he did little with his seven targets, Nelson drew one ill-advised look in the end zone that was intercepted by the Bears. Though he will likely get the start if Decker (hamstring) isn't ready next week, Nelson still can't be counted on for much.

Nelson had one catch for six yards in Sunday's loss at Green Bay.

Nelson has just two targets through two weeks, in part because of his modest ability and in part because of New York's run-heavy offense.

David Nelson WR NYJ 24 Days

Nelson secured his only target in Sunday's victory over Oakland, turning it into a 17-yard reception.

Until Nelson shows us more volume and involvement in the New York passing game, he's not someone we have much fantasy interest in.
