Jordy Nelson's torn ACL shakes up the WR rankings, from the top all the way to the bottom
Injuries are never a good thing, but especially when it involves a top-five fantasy wide receiver. Jordy Nelson's season-ending torn ACL is just not a blow to Green Bay, but also to the fantasy outlook for Aaron Rodgers and certainly the wide receiver landscape. Nelson's absence presents an opportunity for teammate Davante Adams to break out in a big way, but also keep an eye on Jeff Janis and rookie Ty Montgomery moving forward. Randall Cobb will replace Nelson as the Rodgers' No. 1 target, which results in him moving up a few spots higher in the top 10. Elsewhere, veteran Reggie Wayne signed a one-year deal with New England, but don't expect him and Tom Brady to repeat the production of Wayne's glory days when he and Peyton Manning were in Indianapolis. Julian Edelman remains the Patriots' No. 1 wide receiver (tight end Rob Gronkowski is Brady's No. 1 target), as Wayne's addition just adds even more uncertainty to the pecking order behind the top two.
