Jordy Nelson Player Overview

Nelson was named the NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2016 after he missed all of 2015 due to a torn ACL he suffered during the preseason. He logged 16 games last season — just as he had in 2013 and 2014 — ending the year with 97 catches for 1,257 yards, and 15 TDs. In 6 of his 9 NFL seasons, Nelson has played a full slate of 16 games. The 32-year old Pro Bowler hasn’t shown any diminishment of his skill set. Let’s hope he can stay away from another major injury.
