Nelson hauled in eight passes (on 10 targets) for 118 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Texans.
Nelson was by far the Packers' most effective receiver on a day when Davante Adams and Randall Cobb combined for four catches and 36 yards. Sunday marks the fifth time in the last six games that Nelson has accrued more than 90 receiving yards, and it is also the fifth time in the last six games that he has scored a touchdown. His proven rapport with Aaron Rodgers makes Nelson an every-week WR1, even against Richard Sherman and the Seahawks in Week 14.
Nelson caught eight passes (on 12 targets) for 91 yards in Monday night's win over the Eagles.
Nelson led the Packers in both receptions and targets Monday, when he topped the 90-yard mark for the fourth time in Green Bay's last five outings. Although Monday was the lone occasion over that span in which Nelson failed to score, he continues to be a target monster as quarterback Aaron Rodgers' favored wideout. With 12 more looks in Week 12, Nelson has now been targeted 108 times this season, leaving only five players with more league-wide, and his nine touchdown grabs still trail just two players.
Nelson caught three of five targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-24 loss to the Redskins.
Nelson's usage was curtailed as he saw a steady dose of Josh Norman, but he was able to score his ninth touchdown in 10 games on a 13-yard play in the second quarter. He has endured a few weeks with depressed yardage outputs this season, but his ability to execute in the red zone has kept his fantasy value high. He should be more heavily-involved next week against the Eagles.
Nelson turned a whopping 18 targets into 12 catches for 126 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 47-25 loss to the Titans.
This was Nelson's third straight game with at least 94 yards and a touchdown. He doubled the target share of No. 2 option Davante Adams, though Adams actually led the team with 156 receiving yards. The veteran wide receiver's longest catch on the afternoon was only 20 yards, as he failed to find much room downfield despite his gaudy stat line. While the Packers should continue to implement a pass-heavy offensive approach, expect Nelson to see fewer balls moving forward as quarterback Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to air it out 51 times again.
Nelson stole the ball away from a Colts' defender in the end zone on his 26-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He remained involved throughout, leading the
