Nelson caught four of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 27-21 overtime win in Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

This was actually Nelson's second best yardage total in Brett Hundley's seven starts this season. It will be interesting to see how targets are divided if Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns from IR for Week 15 in Carolina, as Davante Adams has looked far superior to Nelson this season. That being said, Nelson scored six touchdowns in the four games that both he and Aaron Rodgers started and finished earlier this season. It's possible Nelson's chemistry with the veteran quarterback gets him back on the fantasy map, even though Adams is far more explosive at this stage of their respective careers.

Nelson brought in five of eight targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 26-20 overtime win against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

The glass-half-full perspective was that Nelson's reception and target totals were team highs, but the other side of the coin was a 3.4 YPC that was even worse than last week's 3.7 figure. Nelson has simply been unable to serve as a factor downfield with Brett Hundley under center, leading to six straight games with 35 or fewer receiving yards. The good news is that Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) may be primed for a Week 15 return according to latest reports, which looks to be the only path for Nelson to finish the season in productive fashion.

Nelson caught three passes for 11 yards in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers' passing attack was as effective as it's been under Brett Hundley, but that did not do anything for Nelson's production; and in fact, Nelson finished with his fewest yards in a game since Week 7 of 2016. If he is ever going to get on track with Hundley at the helm he figures to do so next Sunday against a Buccaneers pass defense that has allowed over 300 yards to opposing wideouts in back-to-back weeks, but it will take a leap of faith to include Nelson in Week 13 lineups after he tallied just 103 receiving yards and no touchdowns over his last five games.

Nelson caught two of six targets for 24 yards during Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson tied for second on the team in targets, but his inability to get in sync with Brett Hundley reared its head again. He finished fourth among Green Bay pass catchers in yardage and has now totaled just 92 yards in four games with Hundley as the starter. Nelson's fantasy value seems to be at a season low at this point, and he seems unlikely to get back on track next week against a stingy Steelers defensive unit.

Nelson caught three passes for 20 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson was targeted nine times by quarterback Brett Hundley in Week 6 after he replaced an injured Aaron Rodgers, so early indications were Nelson would still see plenty of balls in his direction in Rodgers' absence. However, that has turned out not to be the case, as Nelson has seen just 15 targets in the three games since, leading to totals of just eight receptions, 68 yards, and -- most importantly for fantasy players -- zero touchdowns. Rodgers has not been ruled out for the season and chances are there aren't any waiver-wire receivers in your league that match Nelson's track record and upside, so there is little reason to cut him loose right now. However, given his recent production and the fact the Ravens have routinely shut down opposing receivers all season, it's going to be tough to rely on him in fantasy lineups in Week 11.

Nelson caught four of seven targets for 35 yards in Monday night's 30-17 loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson was kept in check by a combination of great coverage from Lions cornerback Darius Slay and limited downfield attempts from quarterback Brett Hundley. While the transition from Aaron Rodgers to Hundley always figured to hurt Nelson's fantasy stock, his mere 48 yards in Hundley's two starts evidence that harsh reality. With another week to prepare and a much better matchup in Week 10 against the Bears, however, Nelson will hope a better connection is found in Chicago.

Nelson brought in one of four targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Although the Packers' passing game suffered as a whole, Nelson looked like he may have missed Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) the most among his fellow receivers. The trusted veteran saw the biggest drop in production overall among the top pass-catching trio of himself, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, with his reception and yardage totals serving as his lowest in a game since Week 7 of last season. Quarterback Brett Hundley figures to develop more rapport with the wideout corps as the weeks roll on, but for the time being, Nelson's fantasy value appears to have taken a significant hit until the former shows improvement. Green Bay will look to get the air attack fixed during their Week 8 bye before taking on the Lions in Week 9.

Nelson reeled in six of nine passes for 60 yards during Sunday's 23-10 loss in Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

All but one of Nelson's nine targets occurred with Brett Hundley under center due to the early departure of Aaron Rodgers. Because Rodgers' season may be in jeopardy as the result of a broken collarbone, Nelson's stock clearly takes a hit due to the expected drop in quarterback play. During Rodgers' seven-game absence with the same injury in 2013, Nelson averaged 4.6 catches (on 6.9 targets) for 62.4 yards per outing while reaching the end zone just once, signifying the rapport between the long-time Packers.

Nelson (back) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

A full practice participant all week, Nelson should be fine to handle his usual heavy snap count. He roasted Minnesota for 14 catches, 227 yards and three touchdowns on 22 targets in two games last season, but he'll see more of top cornerback Xaver Rhodes this time around if the Vikings are smart.

Nelson (back) practiced in full Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nelson was curiously absent from the final drive of Sunday's eventual win in Dallas, but no culprit was mentioned, aside from head coach Mike McCarthy stating the wideout "was being evaluated" during that time. Fortunately for Nelson, he brushed off his back concern and completed every practice rep Wednesday. He'll thus be available in Week 6 against a Vikings defense that has given up 13.0 YPC and three touchdowns to wide receivers through five games.
