Cardinals WR John Brown believes he'll be 'used more in underneath routes'

Thursday, May 21, 2015, 12:47pm

ArizonaSports.com - [Full Article]

In all, Cardinals WR John Brown played the role of burner about as well as one could have, though he thinks he could emerge as the team's top option in the passing game this year.

"Coach Bruce Arians does a great job of calling plays, and it's actually designed for anybody to make plays and be that guy," he said. "Because it's just when the ball is in the air, you have to get it.

"And I think I'll be used more in underneath routes trying to turn and beat (the defense)."

Fantasy Impact:

Brown was the #49 receiver as a rookie and that's about where we have him ranked heading into the 2015 season. The main concern is his opportunity to find consistent playing time and targets behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, though he did lead the team in targets (103) and averaged a solid 6.7 T/G with Carson Palmer in the lineup. Fitzgerald averaged 6.8 T/G while Floyd averaged just 5.0 T/G in those six games.

Scouting Report

Week 10 – Carson Palmer vs. St. Louis

Carson Palmer had a nice game against the Cowboys last week, finishing with 249 yards, three touchdowns, and a pick. He’s been a steady fantasy option since returning from injury in Week 6, and has now thrown 11 touchdowns and only two interceptions all season.

This week, Palmer faces a Rams defense that thrashed the 49ers offensive line last week for eight sacks and has allowed the 8th least passing yards per game so far this year. Palmer is an average option week-to-week, or a fringe starter for fantasy owners looking for a consistent, safe starter, with limited upside. Palmer is a nice bye week filler or streaming option for fantasy owners.
