Summary

Small but ultra-quick, Brown is a dangerous runner after the catch, and he has the speed to stretch defenses. His lingering concussion and complications from sickle cell anemia limited him during his 15 starts in 2016. Now fully healthy, he should build on his 2015 season of 65 catches, 1,003 yards, and 7 touchdowns. Despite some minor quad concerns, Bruce Arians said that Brown was back to his old self in June-July. It was Arians who once compared Brown's upside favorably to Colts Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison. However, it will take a great offense for Brown to earn that comparison even on a remote level. If Carson Palmer and the Cardinals offensive line can rebound from 2016's troubles, Brown has fantasy WR2 upside. (August 14)

Cardinals | John Brown not on the field (Thu Sep 21, 06:33 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Our View: Brown is unlikely to play this weekend, and JJ Nelson and Jaron Brown will take his targets. Both are reasonable WR3 options.

Cardinals | John Brown likely to sit again (Mon Sep 18, 09:41 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) probably will not be able to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Cardinals | Arizona's Week 2 inactives (Sun Sep 17, 11:35 AM) - The Arizona Cardinals have declared QB Blaine Gabbert, OT D.J. Humphries, RB D.J. Foster, LB Deone Bucannon, TE Jermaine Gresham, WR John Brown, OG Mike Iupati inactive for Week 2.

Our View: Troy Niklas and Ifeanyi Momah will get more work with Gresham out. Jaron Brown and JJ Nelson will get more work with Brown out. It's fair to ask if John Brown is worth rostering with his lack of availability this early in the season.
