Report: Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) '50-50' for Week 3

Tuesday, September 19, 2017, 3:25pm

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

The Green Bay Packers' offense put on a disastrous display before garbage time on Sunday night, failing to keep pace with Matt Ryan and the Falcons, and there's a chance things won't get much better this coming weekend. That's because the Packers might be without their best receiver.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jordy Nelson is 50-50 with a quad injury.

Related players: Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, Martellus Bennett, Ty Montgomery

Fantasy Impact:

Cobb is also a bit banged up which could mean a bigger role for Allison. However it could also mean more targets for the more established receivers as well.

Scouting Report

Week 6 vs. Miami Dolphins

Matt Ryan completed 24-of-42 passes for 242 yards, a touchdown, and 2 interceptions in a Week 4 loss to the Bills. He also lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown on what was a questionable call. Ryan has now turned the ball over 6 times in his last two games. He nearly led the Falcons to victory against the Bills, despite not having Julio Jones or Mohamed Sanu, but Atlanta’s offense was stopped on a 4th-and-1 deep in Buffalo territory.

As previously mentioned, Ryan has struggled with turnovers this season but remains a weekly QB1. While Sanu is expected to miss another week or two, Ryan should have Jones back this weekend. Ranked as our QB7 for Week 6, view Ryan as a QB1 against the Dolphins.
