Packers WR Jordy Nelson officially ruled out for Sunday

It comes as no shock, but the Packers have ruled out wide receiver Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson for Sunday's game against the Bears. This will be Nelson's second straight missed game and his third missed this year due to a strained hamstring. The Packers will move forward with Randall Cobb, Greg Jennings and James Jones as Aaron Rodgers' top three targets on the outside.

Fantasy Analysis:

Head coach Mike McCarthy called Nelson a "longshot" to play in this game earlier in the week, so he's probably not a great bet to play next week versus the Titans either. But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Cobb is a must-start this weekend, even against the Bears' defense in Chicago. James Jones is way too up and down to trust. I do want to trust Greg Jennings as more than just a sketchy WR3, but he hasn't done much of anything since coming back from his seven-game layoff. His potential is still fairly high because of his talent and his quarterback, but you're probably better off looking elsewhere this week.
