In the last game
His yardage has declined during that time as well. He had 117 on eight catches at the Giants in Week 11 but failed to reach even 70 in any of the other four. He had 14 on two catches with Matt Flynn at quarterback last week.
Flynn figures to be back under center in Week 14, which doesn't bode well for Nelson even with a favorable matchup against the Falcons, who rank 20th against the pass, allowing 247.8 yards per game. The last time the Falcons faced a wide receiver of note, they allowed 10 catches for 165 yards and a touchdown to the Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson in Week 11.
Obviously, Nelson's ceiling for this game is plenty high because of the matchup, but because of who's throwing him the ball, his floor is also quite low. Most Fantasy owners probably can't do much better for a second wide receiver, but in shallower leagues, Nelson is hardly automatic. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura barely rank him in their top 20 at the postion.
Nelson will attempt to get back on track against a woeful Falcons defense in Week 14.
Nelson made an early impact, as his first reception on the team's second drive was a 34-yard catch-and-run down to the Minnesota 16-yard line. Unfortunately, Nelson would finish the first half with just two catches for 36 yards on two targets.
The Packers made a change at quarterback in the third quarter from Scott Tolzien to Matt Flynn and went to a hurry up offense, but Minnesota continued to keep Nelson in check.
Nelson was targeted on a 2-yard touchdown pass in overtime, but he was badly overthrown by Flynn. Nelson finished with seven targets.
The Packers' next game is Thursday at Detroit (Week 13).
