John Brown's role growing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Cardinals wide receiver John Brown broke free for a late touchdown in Week 8, giving him his best performance of the season.

Brown was on pace for another unremarkable game deep in the fourth quarter, as he had 44 yards on four catches at the two-minute warning. He made up for that with one play, however, his 75-yard, game-winning touchdown late in the fourth.

Brown has lived on big plays this season, with just two double-digit Fantasy-point efforts in seven games. Basically, when he finds the end zone, Brown has value, but has done little else to stand out.

Still, Brown is second on the team in targets over the last three games, with 11 receptions for 203 yards in that span. If you are desperate for help at receiver, it might make sense to look at him on waivers just in case he can turn this into something big. 


Rookie John Brown burns Eagles with late 75-yard score


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Cardinals rookie receiver John Brown blew past the Eagles secondary and made a difficult over-the-shoulder catch for a 75-yard touchdown with 1:21 left in Sunday's game. The dramatic grab gave Arizona a 24-20 win and put Brown over 100 yards for the first time this season.

Brown finished with five catches for 119 yards after never having posted more than 52 receiving yards in a game. He drew 10 targets, tied for the team lead with Larry Fitzgerald.

Brown, who's up to four touchdowns, will look to flash his blazing speed again Week 9 at Dallas.


Cardinals' probables all set for Week 8


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) All the Cardinals who were probable on the injury report are active for the game against the Eagles. The list includes wideout John Brown (ankle), safety Rashad Johnson (knee) and defensive end Frostee Rucker (calf).

Cardinals could have just one player sidelined Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The Cardinals are in excellent shape heading into their Sunday clash against Philadelphia. Only six players are listed on their Friday injury report and one is deemed less than questionable. That is tight end Troy Niklas (ankle), who has been ruled out.

Defensive end Calais Campbell (knee), who returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday, is questionable. The probables are wideout John Brown (ankle), running back Andre Ellington (foot), defensive and Frostee Rucker (calf) and safety Rashad Johnson (knee).


Cardinals backup pass catchers find ways to chip in


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Cardinals received some contributions from their backups Week 7.

John Brown led the way, gaining 41 yards on two receptions. He also received one carry, but lost five yards. Tight end John Carlson also caught two passes, gaining 20 yards. Ted Ginn Jr. caught one ball for 19 yards. He also fumbled, but the Cardinals managed to recover.

Jaron Brown picked up 9 yards on a reception, and Rob Housler gained 7 yards on his only catch.

All five players will take on the Eagles Week 8. 


Cardinals to have a number of injured players Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Cardinals will have a number of their injured players available Week 7.

John Brown, John Carlson, Alex Okafor, Patrick Peterson, Frostee Rucker and Alameda Ta'amu are all active for the contest. Carlson, Rucker and Ta'amu all entered the game questionable. 


Cardinals include 12 players on final injury report for Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Cardinals have listed 12 players on their final injury report for Week 7 at Oakland. As expected, defensive end Calais Campbell (knee) and tight end Troy Niklas (ankle) were ruled out for Sunday.

Deemed questionable were tight end John Carlson (knee), inside linebacker Glenn Carson, defensive end Frostee Rucker (calf) and defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu (illness). Meanwhile, wide receiver John Brown (hamstring), Andre Ellington (foot), wide receiver Michael Floyd (groin), outside linebacker Alex Okafor (quad), quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) and Patrick Peterson (ankle) were all labeled as probable on the report.


Cardinals backup pass catchers contribute little Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Cardinals backup pass catchers contributed little Week 5.

Tight end John Carlson hauled in two catches for 19 yards. John Brown also caught two passes, but only gained 4 yards. Ted Ginn didn't catch a pass, but had a rushing attempt that went for -1 yards.

All three players will take on Washington Week 6. 


John Brown's snaps expected to increase


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Cardinals rookie receiver John Brown played 35 of 67 snaps in the win over the 49ers and caught a pair of touchdowns. ESPN.com expects Brown's snaps to "continue to increase every game as Arizona figures out more ways to utilize his speed."

Brown has nine catches for 109 yards and three touchdowns through three games. Arizona is on a bye and visits Denver in Week 5.


John Brown unlikely to be a reliable source of scores


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Arizona rookie wide receiver John Brown is sure to be one of the hottest names on the waiver wire ahead of Week 4, but Fantasy owners might be searching for fool's gold if they are looking to bolster their receiving corps with the young Cardinals wide out.

Through the first three weeks of his career, Brown looks like a bonafide red-zone monster, having hauled in three touchdowns, including two in Sunday's win over the 49ers. However, he also had just 52 receiving yards in the game, with almost all of his value coming from those two scores. Unfortunately, an early proclivity for scoring doesn't necessarily mean a player has a nose for the end zone.

Over the past five seasons, 14 rookies have caught two touchdowns in a game while failing to top 55 yards in that same game, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com's play index. And though some of them -- Jimmy Graham, Dez Bryant, Rob Gronkowski -- went on to stardom, the collective isn't particularly impressive as a whole. Over their next two games played, the 14 players accounted for 10 total touchdowns but just 149 Fantasy points overall, an average of just 5.3 points per game.

Brown has been the best Fantasy option in the Cardinals' receiving corps so far, but he won't be much use if -- when -- the touchdowns run dry. He is just third on the team in targets and could be a big-time disappointment moving forward. 


John Brown hauls in two TDs in comeback win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cardinals rookie wide receiver John Brown had his breakout performance Week 3 vs. San Francisco, totaling two touchdowns in a second-half comeback. Brown finished with four catches for 52 yards in the 23-14 win.

Brown had two catches for 7 yards in the first half before breaking out in the third quarter. His 24-yard touchdown catch with 9:20 left in the third quarter put Arizona within one point at 14-13. His 21-yard catch about five minutes later gave Arizona a 20-14 lead.

Brown came close to a third touchdown in the second half, but quarterback Drew Stanton overthrew him after Brown ran past his defender down the left sideline. It would have been a 45-yard touchdown had Stanton hit him in stride.

Brown, who was targeted six times, said after the win the game plan all week was to get him the football since the team was expecting San Francisco to give most of its attention on defense to wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. 

The Cardinals are on a by Week 4 before returning to action Week 5 at Denver.


Rookie John Brown makes instant impact


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Cardinals rookie John Brown scored the winning touchdown Monday against the Chargers, taking a slip screen and juking 13 yards to the end zone with 2:25 left in the 18-17 victory. The speedy wideout drew five targets, tied for second on the team, and caught two passes for 29 yards.

Brown visits the Giants in Week 2.


Coach: John Brown could play 60 percent of the snaps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told Sports Illustrated that rookie receiver John Brown could play about 60 percent of the offensive snaps this year. Brown impressed throughout camp and caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bengals. He was targeted eight times.

Brown has a chance to be Arizona's primary No. 3 receiver, ahead of Ted Ginn.


John Brown to practice Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Cardinals rookie receiver John Brown, who's been hampered by a fatigued hamstring, will return to practice Wednesday, coach Bruce Arians told the team's website. Brown will try to regain the momentum he built as an early camp standout.

He's gunning for the slot receiver job vacated by Andre Roberts.


John Brown hits a speed bump


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Cardinals rookie receiver John Brown, who has wowed coaches in training camp, was unable to practice Friday due to a hamstring injury, reports the team's website. The injury is not considered serious.

Rookie John Brown a blur at Cards' camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Cardinals rookie receiver John Brown, who runs a 4.34 forty, is drawing raves early in training camp. General manager Steve Keim told ESPN that "so far we haven't been able to cover him."

A third-round pick, the 5-10, 179-pound Brown could replace Andre Roberts in the slot.


Cardinals fond of rookie John Brown


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) The Cardinals have been impressed with rookie receiver John Brown, reports NFL.com.

Brown, a third-round pick from Pittsburg State, has drawn "favorable" comparisons out of the slot to Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton. The report says Brown was "blowing everyone away" last month at rookie camp and the team remains impressed with his route-running and 4.34 speed -- identical to Hilton's, who thrived under coach Bruce Arians when he was the interim head coach and offensive coordinator at Indianapolis.

Brown is expected to replace Andre Roberts as the slot receiver for the Cardinals.


Impressive rookie WR John Brown sidelined


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) Cardinals rookie receiver John Brown sat out of OTA practices with a hamstring tightness, the official team website reported Friday. Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians plans on being careful with him. 

"He was too impressive the first few days not only speed and catching the ball but he didn't make any mistakes," Arians said of Brown. "One of the first rookies I've had that in the first three days he wasn't on the busted assignment sheet."


John Brown flies to Cardinals' nest


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the 91st pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Cardinals selected receiver John Brown .

His biggest asset is his speed -- he can run a 4.34 in the 40-yard dash -- but he's got a wiry frame at 5-foot-10 and 179 pounds. He's also got small hands which contributes to drops. Brown is from South Florida and originally played college ball at Elon but left, sat out a year, and finished at Pittsburg State, leaving there as the all-time leader in receptions (185) and total touchdowns with 45 (34 receiving, 6 rushing, three on punt returns, two on kick returns).

Expect Brown to wind up working on special teams and contributing sparingly on offense.
