Jordy Nelson | WR | Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has targeted WR Jordy Nelson 30 times in two games so far this year. Rodgers has never targeted one of his wideouts more than 8.3 times per game in a season.
Huddle Up: Nelson's 30 targets are 5 more than the next closest player (Ravens' WR Steve Smith Sr.). This rate will decline, of course, and probability also says Nelson has already put up his best yardage total (a career-high 209 in Week 2) of the season. All this makes him a prime sell-high candidate if you need help at other positions, but if not, you're locking Nelson in your lineup until the Pack's Week 9 bye or -- forbid -- he gets hurt.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson signed a four-year, $39 million extension with $14.2 million guaranteed, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Packers wanted to keep at least some of their receiving corps intact for Aaron Rodgers after losing Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, and James Jones the past few seasons. With Nelson locked in, the Pack can turn their focus to free agent-to-be Randall Cobb.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson believes he could sign a contract extension with the team soon. Nelson is currently in the final season of a three-year, $12.6 million contact extension he signed in 2011.
Huddle Up: Nelson hit career highs in catches (85) and yards (1,314) last season and there's no reason to think he can't approach those figures again with a healthier Aaron Rodgers under center.
