What do you guys think of this guy? Rotoworld reports that he's officially taken over as the 3rd WR in GBay. I grabbed him as bye week fill in in one of my deeper leagues and I figure he's got some sleeper potential.

I picked him up for the same reasons in my deep leagues, Green Bay targets their 3rd WR quite a bit and he's been progressing nicely for a rookie WR, very polished...If he scores he's certainly on my sell high list though.

Glad you agree.

I just wrote a complaint to Yahoo cause he's only projected 1. 1!. C'mon man :-D

Do you guys plan to put him into this week's lineup?

Rotoworld reported: Tampa Bay has a tough secondary, but Nelson's had nickel back Aqib Talib's number since their days together in the Big 12.

But again seeing him projected so low puts me off a little because I have little else to go on.

Look at the letter I got back from Yahoo :-D

Hello,

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

I appreciate your inquiry with regards to project stats for Jordy
Nelson.

Please note, project stats are provided to us by a third party sports
vender.

I apologize if you're related to Jordy but I would not call him a
fantasy god. He's only scored 12 points in your league through 3 weeks.

Whenever you have further comments or questions, please feel free to
contact me.

Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

Regards,

Preston


Here's my original letter:

Why is Jordy Nelson only projected 1 point in your standard leagues. I
am outraged. He is a fantasy god. Please correct this blatant error
immediately.

Thank you,

A member of the Jordy Nelson Cult


This was fun :-b

As a Packer fan, I'm hoping Jordy can be a poor man's version of Wes Welker :)

I don't see the comparison. Jordy Nelson is 6'3" and Welker is 5'9".

Isn't it obvious that every white Wide Receiver's plateau of greatness is Wes Welker? Hell, it could be a 6'6 guy thats big with a decent 40 thats compared to Welker, right Matt? ;-7

I honestly don't think so, but some sites are saying he will.
