Fantasy Analysis
Week 8 Projections
The emergence of Adams and Montgomery as key components of the offense has severely cut into Nelson's production. We expect more than a single catch this week against the Falcons, but his fantasy ceiling has been lowered. The matchup is a good one here though and that will help his cause.
Rushing: 1 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 5 Receptions, 69 Yards, 1 TD.

Season Projections
Despite being 31 years old and coming off a torn left ACL, we're high on Nelson for the 2016 season. By the end of the 2015 season, every fantasy relevant player on the Packers offense had under-performed and disappointed many an owner. Which should create a nice buy-low opportunity for anyone in Packers green, especially Nelson. Just two seasons ago, in 2014, Nelson put up a career year and we expect him to pick up right where he left off. By the end of last season it seems as if Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams were all suffering from sort of injury, and we're all aware of what Eddie Lacy's problem was. Fast forward to 2016 and everyone is healthy and Lacy is now a poster child for P90X. The Green Bay offense has a lot to prove in 2016 and we expect Nelson to be leading the way.

Rushing: 8 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 51 Receptions, 661 Yards, 9 TD.
