Week 3: vs Dallas Cowboys

All TE vs DAL

FBG says: Good matchup. Carson Palmer passed for 332 yards and a touchdown last week as he spread the ball around to eight different targets with a pass of at least 10 yards to each one. Palmer started slow but really heated up after the first quarter. JJ Nelson stepped up in a big way as he led the team in receiving with 120 yards and a long touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. It would have truly been a monster day for Nelson had another touchdown not been called back after Nelson couldn't get both feet in bounds. Jaron Brown was Palmer's most targeted receiver with 11 targets, but he only managed to haul in four of them for 77 yards. The Colts secondary focused heavily on Larry Fitzgerald and effectively shut him down, limiting Fitzgerald to a disappointing performance of only three receptions for 21 yards. The Cowboys secondary looked horrible last week as they allowed Trevor Siemian to finish as the third highest scoring fantasy quarterback of the week, passing for 231 yards and four touchdowns with one interception caused more by his receiver than Semian. Cornerbacks Nolan Carroll and Chidobe Aquzie were routinely beaten in coverage by the Broncos receivers, proving that the absence of Orlando Scandrick really made a difference in this secondary. With Scandrick expected to miss this next game as well, both Jaron Brown and John Brown will be licking their chops. While John Brown has been taking some snaps from the slot, Fitzgerald typically mans that position and should have a solid matchup against slot cornerback Anthony Brown. Brown allowed six receptions last week as the Broncos targeted him heavily.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 1 vs DET (4 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)

Gresham picked up right where he left off in 2016; becoming more of a focal point of the offense while still impeding it with costly penalties. On Sunday, three of Gresham's four targets were all in the red zone, one of which would have been a touchdown had it not been for Gresham's own holding penalty. At this point the costly penalties seem so imbedded in Gresham's game its foolish to expect otherwise. What is curious is the uptick in red zone targets. Is it a function of the lack of weapons elsewhere or a genuine desire to see him more involved in the passing attack with his newly minted contract extension? While neither reason would point to Gresham becoming a viable fantasy starter, it will be an interesting development to follow throughout the season.

Cardinals | Jermaine Gresham to miss game (Sun Sep 17, 12:26 PM) - Arizona Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham (ribs) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 2 game.

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.

Cardinals | Arizona injury report for Week 2 (Fri Sep 15, 05:59 PM) - Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps), OT D.J. Humphries (knee) and OG Mike Iupati (triceps) did not practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is out for Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts. LB Deone Bucannon (ankle) was limited in practice and is doubtful, while TE Troy Niklas (hip) and DE Robert Nkemdiche (calf) were limited and are listed as questionable. TE Jermaine Gresham (ribs) did not practice and is questionable, while LB Karlos Dansby (shin) practiced in full and is longer on the injury report.

Our View: The offensive line is going to miss Iupati in the run game and Brown's absence will hamper the deep passing game against the Colts. The Cardinals offense should still have success if the Colts defense plays the way it did against the Rams last week.
