Just look at what Jaron Brown has done this season for the Arizona Cardinals. He has three catches for 96 yards, and he’s been more reliable than J.J. Nelson. He’s stayed healthier -- this is Nelson’s second injury in his two seasons that has caused him to miss time -- and he’s been more productive on the field. Nelson has one catch this season for 11 yards.
While Nelson has speed that coach Bruce Arians covets and he’s capable of breaking free for a big game -- as he did last season in Week 11 when he had 142 yards, including a 64-yard bomb from quarterback Carson Palmer for a touchdown -- Brown has the been the model of consistency. In three-plus seasons he has 47 catches for 609 yards and five touchdowns. Not bad for an undrafted free agent.

The question was from a Twitter follower who asked if Brown is ahead of J.J. Nelson on the team's depth chart. With the struggles of John Brown, it's possible Jaron Brown could start to see more snaps in the future. Keep him on your fantasy radar for now.

Week 3 at Buffalo
Carson Palmer tore up the Tampa Bay defense last week, with 304 yards and three touchdowns in a blowout victory for the Cardinals. Palmer didn’t even finish the game as Arizona won 40-7, but he still managed a nice fantasy outing without any turnovers. He remains a consistent fantasy option in a prolific offense.
This week, he’ll face a Buffalo team that got torched by Ryan Fitzpatrick last week. Buffalo should be a little better on defense than they showed last week, but they are still vulnerable and Palmer is a nice start against them. Fitzpatrick had only one touchdown pass against them, but moved the ball up and down the field at will. Palmer should be good for QB1 numbers as a top-10 option and remains a good value player at the position in all league formats.
