Jordy Nelson a “long shot” to play

Dec 12, 2012

Jordy Nelson is considered a “long shot” to play this weekend against the Bears, leaving fantasy owners looking for other options. In fact, I wouldn’t recommend starting or even rostering Nelson in anything but keeper leagues, as he will not be a full strength until after the regular season.

You are no longer tied to playing (or rostering for that matter) the struggling wideout....

I am typically cautious when it comes to activating players in your fantasy lineup after a concussion, but this seems like a great week to return to the field. The Colts have an average run defense at...
