Player Notes
Dec 31 2:50pm ET

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.

Dec 30 10:23pm ET

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.

Dec 29 10:13am ET

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.

Dec 26 9:03pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson said Wednesday, Dec. 26, that he plans on returning next season. He's set to make $7.2 million in base salary and bonuses in 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.

Dec 25 11:20am ET

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. Nelson now has six or more catches in four straight games, making him one of the most consistent and valuable options in the Raiders' passing offense. Next week, he will be up against the Chiefs, who he was able to dominate last time with 10 catches on 11 targets, making him a viable fantasy option in the final week of the season.

From RotoBaller

Dec 25 6:23am ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson hauled in seven of 10 targets for 75 yards in the club's Week 16 win Monday, Dec. 24, against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Spin: Nelson appeared all but done as recent as a month ago but this late-season run he's on has vaulted him back into fantasy relevancy. 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.

Dec 22 5:53pm ET

Oakland Raiders DT Maurice Hurst (ankle) did not practice Saturday, Dec. 22, while CB Gareon Conley (concussion) and CB Daryl Worley (shoulder) were limited participants. All three are listed as questionable for the Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Dec. 24. C Rodney Hudson (ankle, knee), S Karl Joseph (neck), FB Keith Smith (calf), TE Lee Smith (back) and LB Kyle Wilber (hamstring) were listed as limited participants, while QB AJ McCarron (not injury related), WR Jordy Nelson (foot) and OL Kelechi Osemele (toe) practiced in full and each were removed from the injury report.

Dec 22 5:53pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) practiced in full Saturday, Dec. 22 and he was lifted from the injury report leading up to the Week 16 game Monday, Dec. 24 against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Spin: Nelson has had a few big games recently, re-emerging as a useful WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Dec 21 5:03pm ET

Oakland Raiders DT Maurice Hurst (ankle) and CB Daryl Worley (shoulder) did not practice Friday, Dec. 21. CB Gareon Conley (concussion), C Rodney Hudson (ankle, knee), S Karl Joseph (neck), FB Keith Smith (calf), TE Lee Smith (back) and LB Kyle Wilber (hamstring) were limited in practice, while WR Jordy Nelson (foot) and OL Kelechi Osemele (toe) worked in full.

Dec 21 5:03pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) was able to practice in full Friday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Spin: Nelson has enjoyed a resurgence lately, racking up 22 catches for 233 yards on 26 targets over the past three outings. He is a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 if active.

Dec 20 7:13pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Spin: Nelson has been playing well over the last three weeks and has been targeted 26 times over that span. He will be facing a solid Denver Broncos defense but could still be a flex option in some leagues.

Dec 16 7:33pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson registered six grabs for a game-high 88 yards on eight targets in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

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.

Dec 16 6:30pm ET

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.

From RotoBaller

Dec 14 5:40pm ET

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.

From RotoBaller

Dec 9 11:53pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson caught passes for 48 yards in a 24-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.

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.

Dec 9 9:30pm ET

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.

From RotoBaller

Dec 7 8:23pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Fantasy Spin: Nelson is coming off one of his better games of the season and could see a solid amount of targets against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Dec 7 5:10pm ET

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jordy Nelson is coming off of one of his best games of the season and should be able to continue that success against the Steelers this Sunday. Nelson posted 10 receptions last week against the Chiefs, which is his highest of the season, a trend which could continue this week. The Raiders are still dealing with a ton of injuries at wide receiver and based on the fact the Steelers have the 17th DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) against the pass, he should be able to produce fantasy value again.

From RotoBaller

Dec 7 4:53pm ET

Oakland Raiders DT Maurice Hurst (ankle) and OL Kelechi Osemele (toe) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and are listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. LB Kyle Wilber (hamstring) and CB Daryl Worley (shoulder) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. RB Doug Martin (knee) and WR Seth Roberts (concussion) were full participants in practice Friday but still listed as questionable. C Rodney Hudson (ankle, knee), OG Gabe Jackson (knee, ankle), and DE Arden Key (knee) remained limited in practice Friday but have been removed from the injury report. WR Jordy Nelson (foot) and DE Frostee Rucker (neck) fully participated in practice Friday and also no longer appear on injury report.

Dec 6 8:03pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 6.

Fantasy Spin: Nelson came out of nowhere last week to log season bests in receptions (10) and targets (11), en route to posting 97 yards, so he's suddenly thrusted himself back into the WR4 picture. However, the former Green Bay Packer has been extremely inconsistent this year, so it may not be wise to trust him in a fantasy postseason matchup.
