Found September 06, 2013 on Fantasy Sports Locker Room:
Jordy Nelson underwent a knee scope less than a month ago but appears to be fully recovered with coach Mike McCarthy telling us he “looks like he’s back to his old self“. Green Bay’s date with San Francisco is a less than ideal start to the season, but Rodgers and his receivers are to a certain degree matchup proof, insomuch as if they are healthy, you’ve got to have them out there despite the fact that the 49er secondary could slow down their progress. The outlook on Nelson heading into Week 1 appears rosey, so, get him in your lineup...

Packers downplaying playoff loss to 49ers heading into Week 1

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was clear that the Green Bay Packers did not want to think about last season's divisional-round playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
