Packers WR Jordy Nelson to miss another game due to hamstring injury

For the second time this season, Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson will have to sit down on game day because of a hamstring strain. Nelson suffered the injury in Week 13 and didn't practice at all this week. The Packers officially ruled him out on Friday. Nelson missed Week 8 versus the Jaguars because of a bum hamstring.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Lions are a great matchup for any passing offense, and I expect Aaron Rodgers to completely obliterate them Sunday night in Green Bay. I'm predicting at least four touchdown passes from him, especially since the Packers pretty much don't have a running game right now. While the Lions have given up multiple scores in a game to WRs just twice this year, that secondary got burnt by the likely of Donnie Avery and LaVon Brazill last week. Of course you are starting Randall Cobb @rcobb18, but I really like Greg Jennings @GregJennings as a solid WR2, and James Jones is a stellar WR3/flex option.
