Jordy Nelson is a go for Week 1

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

It’s been easy to forget that Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson has knee surgery in early August and missed the balance of training camp.

He returned to practice last Monday, and a league source tells PFT that Nelson will be available to play in Week One at San Francisco.

That’s very good news for the Packers, who’ll need their receivers to get open well before a makeshift offensive line yields to opposing defenders, who’ll try to sack Aaron Rodgers more than the 51 times he went down in 2012.

Fantasy Impact: 

Good news for owners. His stock slipped a bit while he was out, but at one point we had him on a similar pace to Randall Cobb's numbers, only his ADP was about a round lower. He gets a tough matchup in Week 1 against the 49ers but we rank him as a low-end WR2.
