Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown is developing a stronger chemistry with QB Carson Palmer this offseason. Palmer said he expects a big season from the second-year wide receiver.
Fantasy Tip: Brown saw 102 targets in his rookie season last year, en route to nearly 700 yards and five touchdowns. Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd will still be ahead of him on the depth chart, but expect a lot of three-wide receiver sets from the Cardinals this year in order to give Brown more playing time. He's a WR4 with low-end WR3 upside.

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown changed his lifestyle during the offseason in an attempt to build up strength and stamina for the long haul. He has sworn off fast food and he added 10 pounds of muscle, mostly to his upper body, to help in press coverage.
Fantasy Tip: Brown was productive in his rookie season, tallying 48 receptions for 696 yards and five touchdowns. However, he tailed off down the stretch. With a full season of consistent production he could flirt with 60 grabs and 800-850 yards, making him a legitimate WR3/4 or flex play week in and week out.

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown has added 10 pounds this offseason and is up to 183 pounds. Brown said the long season took a toll on his body, and he wanted to add weight.
Fantasy Tip: Brown had an early season run of 43-603-5 in the first 12 games but tailed off with 13-161-0 in the final four. He's worth a flyer as a WR4.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,200, 6.4%) expects to play, and he has a favorable matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8. However, you shouldn't lean on Brown for anything more than a low-priced flier. He played in just 44 of 75 offensive snaps last week.

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (ankle), who twisted his right ankle in Week 7, said he fully expects to play in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 15:43:21 -0700

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:17:40 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown may be used on 60 percent of the team's offensive snaps, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Brown has looked impressive all offseason and could very well end up being the team's third best wideout behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 02:23:27 -0700

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 15:17:00 -0700
Arizona Cardinals rookie WR John Brown continues to impress during training camp, and the team may be forced to take six wide receivers on their final roster.
Fantasy Tip: Brown has been a nice surprise, but he's buried too far on the depth chart to be a real fantasy football contributor, at least to start the season. Keep his name in the back of your mind, though.

Arizona Cardinals WR Ted Ginn Jr. is listed as the team's primary punt and kick return man on the first depth chart of the preseason.

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 17:07:30 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown is listed on the team's second-team offense with WR Ted Ginn Jr. behind starting WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. The team's first depth chart of the preseason shows WRs John Brown and Walter Powell on the third-team offense, with WRs Dan Buckner, Reggie Dunn, Brittan Golden and Kevin Ozier on the fourth team.
Fantasy Tip: The fantasy value line stops at Ginn, or the third receiver, unless injuries strike the top of the depth chart. John Brown has looked like a speedster in camp, but he needs to have a good training camp and preseason to sniff the field. Right now, he is worth watching, but not worth drafting.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is expected to open the year as the team's No. 4 receiver, but it looks like he has a chance to become a big-play weapon in the Cardinals' pass-heavy attack. He is worth considering as a late-round flier at this point.
Tue, 15 Jul 2014 19:24:54 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR Ted Ginn Jr. will be the team's No. 3 receiver this year and WR John Brown should be the No. 4 receiver, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.
