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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Owners might want to think about using caution this weekend regarding the third-year wide-out.

Cardinals | Headaches linger for John Brown

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 13:13:39 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (concussion) is still having headaches, but he is making progress, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has not played yet during the preseason and he could be iffy for Week 1 if this trend continues. He really came onto the scene last year and is a low-end WR2 consideration after tallying over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in 2015 despite being the Cardinals' No. 3 wide receiver.
