So far, through 2 games, Jordy has been pretty quiet. Targeted 8 times, with 5 catches for 53 yds and no TDs. I haven't caught either of the Raiders games so far but team-wise they have been pretty good on offense so far. They've played a pair of pretty decent defenses in the Broncos and Rams so maybe they've just been able to shut Jordy down, but as a team the Raiders have put up some yards.

It's probably too early to tell, but so far at least it seems like the Packers made the right choice between Cobb and Nelson.

Jordy has not had a 100 yard game since December of 2016.

That said, it's only been 2 weeks. Let's see how the season plays out.

I watched both games. Saved them on Sunday Ticket so I could watch. Jordy is being used as their #2 WR. Martavis Bryant is the back up behind Cooper, and pretty much considered their "long threat." They are slowly working Jordy into the role of possession receiver. Bryant still has as much as a season long suspension in front of him. I think he'll be gone by the end of 4 games, and the rest of the season will be his suspension.

Well, the numbers switched pretty quickly this week. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out as the season moves along.

In the words of my former college track coach on Jordy this weekend: "damn if that boy don' scoot!"
