Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald still looks as strong and fit as ever, but the chemistry building between Carson Palmer and second year wide receiver John Brown was on full display, especially on deep routes.
"I expect huge things from you this year. There is something different about him," Palmer told me after practice.
Word around the Cardinals building is that his Brown is stronger, in better shape and people are taking notice of his work ethic. (Wide receiver Michael Floyd sat out with a tweaked hamstring) Carson and Brown will continue working together after this week's minicamp ends. Brown will work out in San Diego with Palmer.
Brown finished as the #49 WR in standard formats and #53 in PPR. He saw a hefty 103 targets as a rookie, and with Larry Fitzgerald back and Michael Floyd still in the mix, it's doubtful that Brown's usage will increase too much. If Carson Palmer is healthy, however, the whole passing offense could take a step forward, and that would push Brown into fantasy-starter territory.

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.
