Jordy Nelson, WR, Oakland Raiders
Nelson had six receptions (on eight targets) for 88 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Over the last three games, he has 22 catches on 26 targets with over 85 yards in two of those contests.
The Denver Broncos have edged into the bottom half of the league against wide receivers this season (ESPN PPR scoring), with a touchdown allowed to the position in eight straight games (10 total over that span). Nelson hasn’t found pay dirt since Week 5, when he completed a streak of three straight games with a touchdown.
Just in time to have been completely written off by fantasy owners, Nelson has delivered double-digit PPR points in three straight weeks. That’s where his value sits for Week 16 against the Broncos, as a mid-to-low tier WR3, and those that need Week 17 should be aware of a good matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
