The Oakland Raiders released veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson on Thursday, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Nelson was a disappointment in his lone season in Oakland, catching 63 passes for 739 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games (14 starts). He'll turn 31 years old and can still help a team out, but Nelson's days of being fantasy relevant might be coming to an end soon. There was less of a need to keep Nelson after the Raiders added receivers Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams this week.
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson was released Thursday, March 14, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Nelson was no longer needed after the team added Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams this offseason, but he did post 739 yards and three touchdowns this past season. He should receive interest from some teams during free agency but is no longer a must-start option in fantasy leagues. Nelson could be a No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his new team.
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson could be become a trade chip , in the opinion of Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com, and Barnwell believes Nelson could fetch a fifth- or sixth-round pick.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson was able to post solid fantasy numbers to finish the season, in what was a huge loss to the Chiefs. Nelson ended with nine receptions for 78 yards but no touchdown. He closed out the season on a heater, with six or more receptions in five straight games, along with over 75 receiving yards in four of those games. He is under contract with the Raiders for next season, which hopefully, provides a bit of stability in the Raiders passing game which was inconsistent all season long.
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson caught nine of his 12 targets for 78 yards in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17.
Fantasy Spin: After disappearing in the middle of the year, Nelson closed the season with 38 catches for 386 yards over the final five games. He is expected to be back with the Raiders next year, and at the very least, he should be a solid backup in PPR formats.
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson will return for the 2019 season, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Fantasy Spin: Nelson, who will turn 34 in May, received a $3.6 million roster bonus for 2019 earlier this week and will be entering the final season of a two-year, $14.2 million contract. After a slow start to the 2018 campaign, he has caught 29 passes for 308 yards over the last four games and should be viewed as a WR3 or flex option entering 2019.

Fantasy Spin: After a disappointing start, the 11-year veteran has finally settled in with his new club, racking up 29 catches for 308 yards on 34 targets over the last four games. While he may not be the top-flight receiver he was in Green Bay, Nelson will be a solid buy-low target entering next season, with potential to serve as a viable WR3.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson was able to come away with a strong stat line against the Broncos. Nelson ended with seven receptions for 75 yards and no touchdowns but led the team in yards and catches.

The former Green Bay Packer has collected 29 catches in his last four outings, which remarkably tops his output from the previous 10 games. Thus, he's crafted himself as a legit WR3 option for Week 17.

Fantasy Spin: Nelson has re-emerged as a fantasy threat, especially in PPR leagues, posting six or more grabs over the past three outings. He has 22 catches for 233 yards during the span. Treat him as a WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR, with lesser value in standard play in Week 16 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson led the team in receiving but was done so in a losing effort against the Bengals. Nelson ended with six receptions for 88 yards but was unable to find the end zone. He now has six or more receptions in three straight games, proving to be one of the best fantasy options in the offense. Nelson will be a viable WR 2 in fantasy leagues due to his PPR value and overall target market share in the past few weeks.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson is a viable fantasy option this Sunday against the Bengals. Nelson has seen 18 targets over the past two games and if you are in a deeper league and dealing with injuries, he has some PPR upside. The matchup is certainly a good one, as the Bengals come in with the 27th DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) against the pass this season. He should be able to continue seeing this volume and turn that into solid fantasy points for a third straight week.

Fantasy Spin: After a five-week stretch of doing next to nothing, Nelson has strung together a couple of decent games. He's still a reach as a flex play.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson was able to chip in with a modest amount of production during Sunday's win over the Steelers. Nelson finished with six catches for 48 yards but was unable to come away with a touchdown. He now has 16 receptions in the past two games, showing the upside of why they signed him this offseason. He will continue to be a large part of the passing game since the Raiders have so few reliable pass catchers.
