2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
If you’re looking for a late-round flier, you could do a lot worse than second-year wide receiver J.J. Nelson. Nelson, who played fewer than 14 percent of the Cardinals’ offensive snaps as a rookie, showed flashes of big play ability when he was given the opportunity. His 23.7 yards per reception was extremely impressive, but his 11 total catches made him a non-factor in fantasy.

While Jaron Brown played nearly twice as many snaps as Nelson and could again play more in 2016, his ceiling appears to be far lower than that of Nelson as the two players with the exact same number of receptions.

Arizona coaches have raved about Nelson’s potential and while he doesn’t have much of a chance to prove it with the Cardinals’ big three in front of him, it would only take one injury to any of those players for Nelson to suddenly get a huge boost of playing time in one of the NFL’s most prolific offenses.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Cardinals release WR Michael Floyd
DUI arrest

David Johnson288/Michael_Floyd">Michael Floyd two days after he was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and failure to obey a police officer. Floyd was found unconscious behind the wheel of his running vehicle at a Scottsdale intersection early Monday morning, police said. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Floyd has flopped this season and has lost playing to Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson throughout the season. J.J. Nelson should see increased playing time although with Cardinals focusing on David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and TE Jermaine Gresham in the passing, Nelson is likely to be overvalued in Week 15.
