    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson said he is looking to be more than a deep threat and believes the new offensive scheme will help him become a more complete receiver.

    Huddle Up: Nelson will be competing with several others for the No. 2 receiver job during training camp, so owners can keep an eye on the situation. His speed and big-play ability makes him a decent fantasy option and can be a late-round pick in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 2:16pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson hauled in a 46-yard reception on his only catch on three targets in Week 15 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Nelson doesn't get enough catches to make him worth using in most standard fantasy leagues, but he has a lot of big-play potential making him a useful option in specialty leagues rewarding longer plays and scores.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 8:13pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson was held to two grabs for 26 yards on three targets in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Nelson is a big-play receiver with some fantasy value in leagues rewarding longer touchdown, but he doesn't see enough touches to warrant usage outside of the deepest standard leagues.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 4:15pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has two or fewer catches in each of the past seven games, and he hasn't scored a touchdown in 10 consecutive outings. He has some fantasy appeal due to his big-play ability, but keep him on the bench since he is uncertain to play.

  • Posted: 12/6/2017 4:33pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has been held to two or fewer catches in each of the last seven games and has gone 10 games without a touchdown. He has some value because of his big-play ability but can be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 4:09pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has a chance to see more targets this week with John Brown out of the lineup. Nelson has been fairly quiet over the last month and has been targeted at least five time in only one of the last five games. Owners probably can find better options for their lineups.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 12:13pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (chest) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Nelson appears to have a solid chance to play in Week 12 as long as he does not suffer a setback over the next few days. He has been held to under 20 yards in each of the last three games and can be avoided this week against a tough matchup.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 5:14pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson racked up two catches for 35 yards on five targets in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams in London.

    Huddle Up: Nelson rebounded after getting blanked last week. Still, he hasn't found the end zone since Week 2 and remains nothing more than a WR4 or WR5 heading into Week 9 after the team's bye.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 1:42pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was able to practice in full Friday, Oct. 13, and he was removed from the Week 6 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Nelson is in line to play against the Buccaneers, but he'll be fighting with John Brown, Jaron Brown and, of course, Larry Fitzgerald, for targets. Nelson has racked up 277 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 17 catches through four games. He is the second Cardinals wideout to target for fantasy purposes behind Fitz.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 4:15pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has been able to play despite the injury and should be in uniform again this week. He is the deep threat for the Cardinals and can be a flex option in deeper leagues because of his big- play potential.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 4:22pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Nelson recorded 80 yards in Week 5 and will continue to receive targets in the passing game because of his big-play ability. He can be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 2:27pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson caught four passes for 80 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has been targeted at least six times in three of the five games this season but has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his receiving yards. He will continue to have a role in the passing game but should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 1:36pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring, tooth) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is considered questionable for Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Nelson was on the field last week, but his role was slightly diminished following the return of John Brown from injury. He remains a solid downfield target for Carson Palmer, but his fantasy appeal is rather limited to deeper leagues and formats awarding bonus points for longer scores.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 3:12pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring, tooth) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Nelson saw his targets drop last week with John Brown back in the lineup and finished that game with 34 yards. He has fantasy value because of his big-play ability, but owners in most leagues can avoid him this week.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 3:12pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring, tooth) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Nelson received four targets last week and will still receive some targets in the passing game even though John Brown has returned to the lineup. He has the potential to be a deep threat for the Cardinals but probably is not a great option for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 1:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Nelson will be able to play. He may drop down on the depth chart with John Brown is expected back and may be kept on the bench this week in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 4:22pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Nelson's status is uncertain at this point, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He did not catch any passes in Week 3 and would drop down the depth chart if John Brown returns. Owners in most leagues can keep Nelson on the bench this week.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 4:45pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Nelson was able to play in Week 3 despite the injury but was held without a catch. Nelson has the potential to be a productive fantasy player but may lost some playing time if John Brown is able to play. He probably should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/23/2017 2:28pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Nelson was limited during practice the entire week and should be in uniform against the Dallas Cowboys. Nelson should see more touches with John Brown out and could be at least a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 2:52pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see Nelson is in any danger of missing Week 3. He is coming off a terrific Week 2 performance and would have a bigger role if he plays this week. Nelson can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he is active.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 3:39pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Nelson appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3 if he can avoid a setback, but owners will have a better idea of his status later in the week. Nelson posted 120 yards and one touchdown in Week 2 and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option this week if he plays.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 11:23am ET

    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.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 3:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson caught five passes for 120 yards and scored one touchdown Sunday, Sept. 17, in a 16-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Nelson had a decent first-week outing against the Detroit Lions and followed up with this strong effort. Nelson remains a WR4 option, but he could climb to a WR3 with a few more contests like this one.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 4:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson racked up five receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 at Detroit and he was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: Nelson and John Brown are jockeying for targets behind veteran Larry Fitzgerald. Nelson has emerged as a decent WR4 or flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Cardinals battle the Colts on the road in Week 2.
