Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 18:41:08 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can check on Brown's status later in the week, but they probably should use other options since the Cardinals play on Monday Night Football. JJ Nelson will continue to have a bigger role in the passing game if Brown sits out and could be a flex option for owners.

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 15:00:14 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) did not practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is ruled out for Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: With Brown on the sidelines it will be Jaron Brown and JJ Nelson seeing more targets behind Larry Fitzgerald among the wideout. Nelson is a decent low-end WR4 in deeper fantasy formats.

Cardinals | John Brown still not practicing

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 14:15:38 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) was held out of practice for a second straight day Thursday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: We're approaching crunch time for Brown, who has a tasty tilt with the Colts this weekend. If he plays and he's limited then he's only a flex option. If he doesn't play at all then Larry Fitzgerald is a WR1 with J.J. Nelson providing flex value.

Cardinals | John Brown misses practice

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 14:43:05 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It would be unfortunate for Brown to miss the game or be limited at all in a favorable matchup with the Indianapolis Colts. If he plays without limitations then Brown is at least a flex option, but keep tabs on his status as the week progresses.

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 16:32:32 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown rushed once for 10 yards and he added four receptions for 32 yards on nine targets in Week 1 at Detroit.

Fantasy Tip: Brown and JJ Nelson are the secondary options fighting for targets behind Larry Fitzgerald. As such, Brown is only recommended as a No. 4 or 5 fantasy receiver heading into Week 2 at Indianapolis.

Cardinals | John Brown ready for Week 1

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 19:19:25 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown said he will be ready to play Week 1 against the Detroit Lions "no matter what."

Fantasy Tip: Brown battled injuries throughout last season, but during the preseason, he showed signs of being the explosive deep threat he was in 2015. He will be a risky start until he proves he can stay healthy, but he has long-term upside as a WR3.

Cardinals | John Brown scores twice

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 18:43:42 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown caught two passes for 49 yards and two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: His durability is a major question mark, but Brown has WR3 upside and should be available for a WR4 price.

Cardinals | John Brown won't rush return

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 19:29:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) ran a few routes in practice Tuesday, Aug. 15, but vows not to come back to a full practice before he is completely healthy. Brown added he could play Saturday, Aug. 19, against the Chicago Bears, "but I won't be at my best."

Fantasy Tip: Brown's comments were in response to head coach Bruce Arians' remarks that Brown was ready to practice. The oft-injured wideout has high-end WR3 upside, but his durability remains a huge question mark, making him more of a WR4.

Cardinals | John Brown will have full practice

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 12:01:16 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) will be full go in practice Tuesday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has had his fair share of health concerns in his young career, so it's encouraging that he'll be a full participant again. Brown is somewhat of an under-the-radar sleeper and is a worthwhile WR3 or WR4 option as Arizona's go-to deep threat.

Cardinals | John Brown to return soon

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 17:05:10 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) is expected to return to practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Brown battled injuries throughout last season, but if he can stay healthy, he should be the No. 2 option in the Arizona passing attack. Consider him a WR3 with upside.

Cardinals | John Brown could miss up to a week

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 13:01:51 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is expected to miss a few days and perhaps may be a week with a quad injury, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was enjoying a great spring and summer up until this point, so this takes a little bit of air out of his balloon. Expect the Cardinals to take it very slowly with him considering his injury history, which includes some of the soft-tissue variety, as Arizona desperately needs him to take some pressure off of David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. Assuming he can come back healthy in short order, he remains a high-upside WR3 in fantasy.

Cardinals | John Brown packing on muscle

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 10:22:02 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown checked into the team's first practice of the season at 185 pounds, up 12 pounds from last season.

Fantasy Tip: "Smokey" hasn't lost any of his blazing speed, according to observers, and appears primed to put his forgettable 2016 - in which he learned he was dealing with sickle cell trait and had a cyst on his spine - behind him. Brown is an excellent candidate to return high-end WR3 value at a WR4 price this season with Michael Floyd gone and Carson Palmer reportedly feeling strong again.

Cardinals | John Brown ready for big season?

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 21:31:18 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown will be the main beneficiary of the departure of Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd, according to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports. Floyd accounted for 88 targets for the Cardinals last season.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was a 1,000-yard receiver in 2015, and now that he is healthy and the No. 2 option behind Larry Fitzgerald, WR3 protection is a good bet.

Cardinals | John Brown dealing with injuries

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 13:10:28 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) is dealing with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Brown could miss the rest of offseason workouts because of the injury but likely will be ready for the start of training camp. Brown struggled with injuries in 2016 and finished with only 517 yards and two touchdowns. He should be a top three receiver for the Cardinals this season and can be considered a No. 3 receiver.

Cardinals | John Brown back to old self

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 20:38:05 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown is back to running routes like he did in 2015, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "A couple of those routes he ran, he did not run one route like that last year," Arians said. "Knock on wood, it stays that way."

Fantasy Tip: Health issues derailed Brown last year, but he topped 1,000 yards in 2015. He should be a key component of Arizona's passing attack this year, and he is worth grabbing as a WR3.

Cardinals | John Brown had cyst removed

Thu, 04 May 2017 14:03:53 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (back) had a cyst removed from his spine following the final game of last season. Brown had been dealing with a sickle cell trait last season and his production suffered because of it. After the cyst was removed, though, he was back to normal. Brown said his body has been feeling better and he's back in his normal routine and back to being himself.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is one of the better deep threats in the NFL when he's on the field. He's set to start opposite Larry Fitzgerald in 2017 with Michael Floyd out of the picture. He's capable of putting up WR2 numbers, too, as he tallied 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games two seasons ago.

Cardinals | John Brown working out

Sun, 02 Apr 2017 15:59:44 -0700

Cardinals | John Brown now very healthy, says owner

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 20:04:20 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) is now "very healthy," according to team president and owner Michael Bidwill, who also said that it "looks like they found the issue" regarding the sickle cell problem the receiver was dealing with this past season. Bidwill added: "We'll get (Brown) back the way we had him."

Fantasy Tip: That would be terrific news for the Cardinals and fantasy owners, as Brown regressed mightily after a breakout 2015 campaign that saw him register his first career 1,000-yard season. In 2016, Brown managed only 39 receptions for 517 yards and a pair of scores, but that had more to do with the sickle cell issue than anything else. With a clean bill of health, Brown could easily be a nice buy-low candidate and re-emerge to deliver solid WR3 value.

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 13:31:46 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 23, and is being listed as questionable for the team's Week 16 game versus the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is coming off his first notable performance in weeks, thanks to an uptick in snaps, but even so, it's hard to trust him as anything more than a WR4 with fantasy championships at stake. Only owners in deeper formats should consider deploying him this weekend.

Cardinals | John Brown rebounds nicely

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 21:56:00 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown posted five receptions for a team-high 81 yards and a score in the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was not even targeted last week in Miami and he had just one target over the past two games as he dealt with an illness. He appears to be back, as the touchdown was his first in six games and the yardage total was his highest since Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams. The sudden release of Michael Floyd should led to a bigger role for Brown down the stretch.

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 17:36:54 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Brown may be limited for the rest of the season because of his illness, but owners should look for any update on his status. He has only one catch for 19 yards in his last four games and should be avoided in all leagues.

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 17:06:17 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown was active in the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins but he did not have a catch and he wasn't even targeted.

Fantasy Tip: Brown appears to have slipped behind JJ Nelson and Brittan Golden on the pecking order among the wideouts. He was also battling an illness, so that might have contributed to the non-production.

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals are still trying to figure out how to handle Browns' sickle cell trait. Even though he'll probably play, his snaps should be limited in an effort to minimize health risks. As such, he is not a recommended start with a possible fantasy playoff win on the line.

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:09:36 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) will have his snaps limited to about 20 per game until the Cardinals can maintain Brown's sickle cell trait.

Fantasy Tip: A player can still put up a respectable stat line in just 20 snaps, but it's best to refrain from starting Brown until he's full go. In the meantime, Larry Fitzgerald, David Johnson, Michael Floyd and J.J. Nelson should split most of Brown's targets.

Cardinals | John Brown to see specialists

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 05:43:59 -0800

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) will see multiple specialists this week due to the sickle-cell trait continuously causing his legs to tighten. "That's the one that's so baffling," head coach Bruce Arians said. "It's not really a pull. Whatever the blood issue he has the legs tighten up."

Fantasy Tip: Brown has really struggled amid his health issues, and he's not a viable option in fantasy for now.

Cardinals | John Brown out of game

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 12:52:54 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury Sunday, Nov. 27, against the Atlanta Falcons. He is out of the game.

Fantasy Tip: On most depth charts Brown is listed as a WR2 behind Larry Fitzgerald, so Brown definitely gets his share of targets and catches. Brown eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark in his second season and has 30 catches and 380 yards in 2016, so to lose him would be a major fall for Arizona. Look for J.J. Nelson (18 catches, 243 yards, 2 TDs) to possibly step into a bigger role if Brown misses time.
