From 2013 to 2016, Nelson was an elite fantasy receiver, averaging over 93 catches, 1,363 yards, and 11 touchdowns. But he had a down season last year (partly due to the absence of Aaron Rodgers), catching 53 passes for 482 yards and six scores. The soon-to-be 31-year-old WR was not in Green Bay's plans for the upcoming season.
