Week 12: vs Jacksonville Jaguars

All WR vs JAX

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Cardinals passing offense had a new face under center last week as Blaine Gabbert got his first start of the season in relief of the injured Drew Stanton. Despite the low expectations, Gabbert actually had a great fantasy outing as he finished as the sixth highest scoring quarterback of the week. He did throw a couple of interceptions though, which is per the Gabbert game script as he just two more touchdowns than interceptions (41 to 39) in his career. Gabbert is expected to start again this week as Stanton is still nursing his knee injury. Larry Fitzgerald was, predictably, the top target again last week as he hauled in nine of ten targets for 91 yards and a touchdown. Fitzgerald has had some up and down games this season, but he is still the most reliable receiving option in this offense. Undrafted rookie tight end Ricky Seals-Jones came out of nowhere last week to haul in a couple of touchdowns--the first two of his career. Seals-Jones was a receiver in college but has converted to a tight end in the NFL. He is a big-bodied guy at 6'5'' and 243lbs, so he could definitely be a weapon in the passing attack if he can manage to be allotted more than 15% of the snaps as he was last week. The Jaguars have the absolute best defense in the league this season. They are leading nearly every category as it pertains to passing defenses and have allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to both opposing quarterbacks and receivers by a large margin. Their secondary is healthy and playing at an untouchable level. Even the great Larry Fitzgerald should struggle against either of these Jaguars cornerbacks. The Jaguars defensive front that has racked up a league-leading 40 sacks should also dominate a very weak Cardinals offensive line, making it tough on Gabbert to have even a second to think about who to throw to.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 9 vs SF (1 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)

Similar to John, Jaron Brown only had one catch Sunday but made sure it was impactful. Brown's three-yard touchdown came as the play broke down and Brown simply slipped behind defenders.

2017 Week 4 vs SF (12 / 8 / 105 / 0 rec)

Physically, Jaron Brown is the closest this team has to what Michael Floyd once offered. A tall body that could high-point balls and excel in the intermediate, using his body to shield off defenders. While he has often shown this in flashes, Sunday was arguably the most complete game Brown has put together. Brown was a consistent chain-mover all day on Sunday, and was targeted roughly as often as Ellington. Nearly 1/4th of Palmer's attempts targeted Jaron Brown. Simply put, that is a level of involvement he has rarely seen before. Brown's ceiling is likely as a quality #3, but in an offense as devoid of skill-position talent as the Cardinals currently are, he will has an opportunity each week to match this output. The question remains will he play consistent enough to realize it.

2017 Week 3 vs DAL (6 / 2 / 27 / 1 rec)

Brown was fourth on the Cardinals in targets against Dallas, but his two-catch performance could have been more impactful. Brown hauled in a wide open touchdown early in the game, but missed opportunity dominated the rest of Brown's performance. A broken play in the red zone resulted in another touchdown, only to be called back by offensive holding. Later, a deep target was tipped away by a defensive back and two other targets resulted in Brown being barely out of bounds before completing the catch. Multiple touchdowns and close to 100 yards were in play for Brown this week outside of those missed opportunities.

2017 Week 2 vs IND (11 / 4 / 73 / 0 rec)

Jaron was the team's most targeted receiver Sunday, with 11 total and 4 more than the next closest, but overall it was a disappointing effort for Brown. Multiple drops and an inability to haul in key downfield passes consistently held the offense back. More than once Jaron had the ball in his hands only for a defensive back to knock it loose. With John Brown's health a continual question, Jaron must become a more consistent player for this offense to improve.
