2016 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: KNEE SCARE REMINDER OF JORDY NELSON RISK

As NFL training camps get set to get underway, we are starting to get medical reports on key players in fantasy football who are coming back from major injuries and surgeries.  One such case is Green Bay Packers ace wideout Jordy Nelson who tore his ACL in his right knee last summer and thus was not able to suit up for one down of the 2015 season.  All throughout the offseason though, reports were positive on Nelson as he and the team both said he would 100 percent for Week 1.  As the Packers coaching staff got together on Tuesday though, it was revealed that Nelson had a "scare" with his LEFT knee.  The knee scare is serious enough to keep Nelson from practicing at the start of camp and underscores the risk of investing in a player coming back from such a serious health issue.  When he is 100 percent right, Nelson is a clear WR 1 in fantasy football who stands out even more in standard formats due to his knack for collecting touchdowns.  However the name brand carries a ton of weight and associated with Aaron Rodgers has Nelson going as early as Round 2 in drafts already and that could be a dicey spot to invest in someone with injury question marks already.  Proceed cautiously with Nelson as both he and Randall Cobb (who struggled terrible without Nelson on the other side a year ago) values hanging in the balance.
