Packers WR Jordy Nelson, TE Jermichael Finley practice Wednesday

One day after Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb @rcobb18 overcame his current bumps and bruises and made it through a limited practice, wide receiver Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson and tight end Jermichael Finley @JermichaelF88 did the same. Actually, so did running back James Starks @James44Starks, who hasn't played since Week 13 because of a bone bruise in his knee. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Nelson "looked good" during the session but that the team's physician "still has some concerns" about his knee.

Fantasy Analysis:

However, those three receivers are expected to play against the Vikings on Saturday night. Add in Greg Jennings, and you have something that the Packers haven't seen since Week 1 -- all four playing in the same game. Nelson's status will be updated on Thursday. There's no question that he, nor basically anybody, for that matter, will be operating at full strength, but Nelson should be able to give the Packers a full game. He, Cobb and Jennings are fine fantasy playoff starts. Starks, on the other hand, will likely need another week or so of recovery time.
