Nelson caught seven passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns, his highest totals since the Packers' season opener against the San Francisco 49ers.
He improved his season totals to 649 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, the same amount of scores he had during the 2012 season. He's also averaging 16.6 yards per catch this year.
Fantasy spin: Despite starting the season with a knee injury, Nelson has emerged as a top-five fantasy football wide receiver this season. He's Rodgers' only healthy weapon left and is getting a ton of targets as a result. Without Randall Cobb, Jermichael Finley and James Jones commanding attention, Nelson stole the show.
Considering he's already approaching his numbers from last season, Nelson's 2013 ceiling may be his 2011 season, during which he caught 15 touchdowns and had 1,263 yards receiving.
