Nelson spent the first 10 seasons of his career with the Packers after the team selected him in the second round of the 2008 draft. Nelson wasn’t a full-time player until 2013 but went on to finish top 10 at his position in receiving yards three of the next four years. Nelson seemed well on his way to another huge season last year, but his production fell off a cliff (to put it kindly) when Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone in Week 6.
Oakland has already added Doug Martin to back up Marshawn Lynch, as well as two blocking tight ends (Lee Smith, Derek Carrier) and a second fullback (Keith Smith). Quite simply, the Raiders do not look like a team likely to produce a ton through the air or score a lot of points. Nelson’s talent level and what will likely be a generous target share are enough to keep him in the flex (if not WR3) mix, but he’s a risky investment anywhere other than the middle portion of your 2018 fantasy draft.

The Browns’ backfield has been simple to sort out in recent years: Isaiah Crowell on early downs and short yardage, Duke Johnson Jr. in passing situations. Moving forward, it shouldn’t be much different. On Wednesday, the Browns agreed to sign Hyde, who provides the team with an upgrade on Crowell, who is expected to sign with the New York Jets.
I think it’s going to be more like a punt [return] because there are going to be more single blocks,” Toub said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. You’re not going to have a point of attack where you’re hitting [the hole]. . . . It’s going to look more like a punt return.”
Elite Mens Trey Hopkins Jersey Tyreek Hill, Kevin Klein Jersey one of the NFL’s best punt returners, returned kickoffs for the Chiefs as a rookie in 2016. He averaged 27.4 yards and scored a touchdown on 14 kickoff returns.
The Chiefs, though, took him off kickoff duties after he became a starting receiver last season.
Kansas City has no plans to move Hill back to that role.
The Bucs moved on from Doug Martin. Now they get a dynamic open-field runner and receiver to replace him. Jones might not be a true workhorse, but he will make explosive plays with good work in the passing game to support Jameis Winston.
