News: Derek Carr excited to have Jordy Nelson

Smitty’s Take: NFL.com posted a news piece that had Derek Carr recently saying this about newly-acquired Jordy Nelson: “I can see why Aaron Rodgers loved throwing him the ball.” Honestly, if there is a surprise comeback receiver for 2018, one that involves an older veteran that can still drop low-end WR1-type production, I wouldn’t be shocked if Jordy was the guy. Now, you have to use ADP data to your advantage, and that data stocks him into the shelves of the 6th- to 7th-round in redraft, but there is some real upside with Jordy, a player the Saints also tried to acquire this off-season. Consider him one of those ‘worth a look’ veterans to add to a youth-based dynasty team that needs some cheap-to-acquire veterans (Dez Bryant is another name) as supporting cast.
