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 | Arizona's Week 12 injury report (Fri Nov 24, 07:22 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown and DT Corey Peters (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and have been ruled out for Week 12.

Cardinals | John Brown ruled out (Fri Nov 24, 06:54 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 12.

Cardinals | John Brown does not practice (Thu Nov 23, 03:12 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

Our View: Thanksgiving Day practices are hard to get wigged out about, so we'll wait until Friday's practice before we get concerned. Blaine Gabbert, the Jacksonville defense - those are things we're concerned about. We'd avoid him.

Cardinals | John Brown dealing with turf toe (Mon Nov 20, 02:14 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) has been diagnosed with turf toe and is likely to 'miss time,' according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Our View: If it's not one thing, it's another for John Brown. We all know he's talented and can take the top off the defense, but injuries have seemingly constantly knocked his production off track.
