Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson has scored seven touchdowns in his last seven games, including one in each game this season.
Huddle Up: Four of his touchdowns over the last seven games have covered at least 42 yards. Nelson has capitalized on the frequent absences of John Brown, but that does not diminish the fact he is a big- play offense that loves to push the ball down the field. Nelson is a poor bet to sustain this level of production if/when Brown can get (and stay) healthy, but he's proven to be a very savvy play in fantasy pretty much anytime Brown is sidelined.
