WR Jordy Nelson UP Jordy Nelson returned to practice after knee surgery today, 2 weeks before the Packers’ first game of the season. It’s obviously a very good sign for his week 1 status and makes me a little bit more confident in a bounce back year. Projection: 80 catches for 1120 receiving yards 10 touchdowns (172 pts standard, 252 pts PPR) WR James Jones DOWN With Randall Cobb taking over a bigger role and Jordy Nelson coming back from injury, James Jones could see up to 100 fewer passing snaps than he did last season, so he’s unlikely to reach the 64 catches for 784 yards he had last season and even if he were to catch 64 passes again, it’s unlikely he’d convert 14 touchdowns. Something like 2010 (50/679/5) or 2011 (38/635/7) is much more likely. Leave him alone. Projection: 53 catches for 670 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns (103 pts standard, 156 pts PPR) RB Knowshon Moreno UP Originally, I thought it would be Ronnie Hillman to start the season for the Broncos, but he’s been a...
