J.J. Nelson | WR | Arizona Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson posted two receptions for 29 yards in the Week 10 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: Nelson was tabbed as the No. 2 wideout this week, but he didn't do much after the promotion. He remains nothing more than a WR4 until he can produce more consistently.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson has 'become one of the starters at wide receiver', according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Huddle Up: The implication here is that Michael Floyd has been demoted, allowing Nelson to join Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown in three- receiver sets. It's a move that's probably a bit overdue, but not one that guarantees Nelson a ton of future fantasy success given how uneven Carson Palmer has looked this season. Still, Nelson's speed (sub-4.3) and recent target totals (19 over the last two weeks) make him an attractive boom/bust weekly WR3 candidate going forward and one well worth adding in all leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson caught eight passes for 79 yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Nelson received more targets this week since Michael Floyd was dealing with a hamstring injury and did not catch a pass. He had only 135 yards on the season when entering the game and probably will see less work when Floyd and John Brown are completely healthy. Owners in most leagues should continue to pass on Nelson.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson has made progress since being limited with early-season injuries, and he had four touches for 39 yards in the Week 6 game against the New York Jets and two runs for 23 yards and three grabs for 84 yards in Week 7 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Nelson might have a bigger role with John Brown dealing with an illness and Michael Floyd nursing a hamstring injury. If Brown and Floyd are inactive, Nelson would be worth a look in fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams.
