David Nelson has been playing well in Buffalo so far this season, along with the emergence of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. He has been targeted numerous times this season, racking up 10 catches for 83 Yds. and a TD in Week 2. Stevie Johnson is nursing an injury and Roscoe Parrish is done for the season, so Nelson’s opportunities should only increase. The next two weeks, Nelson is up against New England — giving up about 400 yards a game in the air — and the Bungals. The Bengals are normally easy pickings for anyone and should be particularly ripe for extremely smart former Bengal Fitzpatrick to dismantle. While only time will tell if Nelson is a good long-term pickup, he could serve emergency duty over the next two weeks if your other options are shaky.
