Arizona Sports' Mike Jurecki doesn't expect impending free agent Jaron Brown to re-sign with the Cardinals.
The 28-year-old tore his ACL in 2016 but came back to set career highs across the board in 2017 with a 31-477-4 receiving line, averaging 15.4 yards per catch. Jurecki expects Brown to "get a nice deal" elsewhere. Wherever Brown ends up, he's not going to command much as a No. 3 or 4 type. Jan 31 - 1:20 PM

Jaron Brown caught 1-of-5 targets for a 25-yard touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 17 win over the Seahawks.

With the Cardinals' receiver corps banged up behind Larry Fitzgerald, Brown ended up setting new career highs across the board. He provided a big-play threat, averaging 15.4 yards per grab while scoring four touchdowns. Eight days shy of his 28th birthday, Brown is headed to free agency. He will try to latch on as someone's No. 4 or 5 receiver.

Jaron Brown caught his lone target for a 52-yard touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

Brown has seen exactly one target in three of the past six games, and this was his first time topping 40 yards since Week 4. Still, he made his one look count, as Blaine Gabbert delivered a beautiful deep ball over the top of the defense into Brown's waiting arms to put Arizona up 24-17 in the fourth quarter. Even with John Brown (toe) out, Jaron isn't an option in 12-team leagues.

Jaron Brown turned his only target into a three-yard touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 9 win over the 49ers.

Brown made the most of his only target, getting open in the end zone during the scramble drill for a three-yard touchdown to get the Cardinals on the board. Despite the score, he is not a fantasy option with Drew Stanton under center.

Jaron Brown caught 2-of-5 targets for 37 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Brown's 37 yards led the team on a day Carson Palmer broke his arm and was replaced by an inept Drew Stanton. Brown won't be fantasy relevant with Stanton under center. This offense will struggle to score points.

Jaron Brown caught his lone target for a 30-yard gain in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Bucs.

He now shares time with J.J. Nelson as Arizona's No. 3 receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown. Jaron is just an injury-dependent deep-league stash.
Sun, Oct 15, 2017 07:41:00 PM

Jaron Brown played 36-of-60 snaps (60 percent) Week 5 against the Eagles.

It is a big step back after he played over 90% of the snaps the previous two games. John Brown saw 48 snaps while J.J. Nelson was in on 32 plays. With John Brown looking healthy, the other two are not fantasy options right now. Of course, John's health cannot be taken for granted.

Jaron Brown snagged three-of-six targets for 39 yards Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 5 loss to the Eagles.

It was a quiet afternoon for Brown, who was out-targeted by both Andre Ellington and Larry Fitzgerald. More than half his output came on a 20-yard catch to open the second quarter. He’ll look to bounce back against the Buccaneers in Week 6.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 06:10:00 PM

Jaron Brown played 82-of-86 snaps (95 percent) Week 4 against the 49ers.

Jaron has now played 90 percent of the snaps in back-to-back games, and it seemed like John Brown (53 snaps) stole work exclusively from J.J. Nelson (25 snaps). Jaron also has double-digit targets in two of the last three games and scored a touchdown in Week 3. Even with John back, Jaron is worth a look in all leagues.

Jaron Brown caught 8-of-12 targets for 105 yards in the Cardinals' Week 4 win over the 49ers.

Brown led all Cardinals' receivers in targets, but Andre Ellington led the offense as a whole with 14 looks. Since his target-less Week 1, Brown has games with 11 and 12 targets sandwiched around a Week 3 where he caught a touchdown. Brown played 94% of the snaps Sunday and is worth an add in deeper leagues because the Cardinals throw so much and Brown is always on the field. He doesn't make many big plays, but there's at least some volume to hold onto here. Brown will be on the WR4/5 map next week in a plus matchup against the Eagles.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 08:51:00 PM

Jaron Brown caught 2-of-6 targets for 27 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 3 loss to the Cardinals.

Brown looked like he might be headed for a big night, beating Anthony Brown for a 25-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He found the end zone again in the first half, but it was called back on a holding penalty by RT Jared Veldheer. Brown was barely heard from again. Even with John Brown (quad) out, Jaron is nothing more than a last-ditch WR4/5 play.
Tue, Sep 26, 2017 12:29:00 AM

Jaron Brown caught 4-of-11 targets for 73 yards in the Cardinals' Week 2 win over the Colts.

The Colts focused their defensive attention on Larry Fitzgerald, which opened things up for Brown and J.J. Nelson on the outside. Both ripped off chunk-yardage gains, and Brown led the team in targets. Brown's fantasy outlook is still very much tied to John Brown's (quad) health. If John is out for Week 3 against the Cowboys, Jaron will be worth WR4/flex consideration.

Jaron Brown was not officially targeted in Week 1.

Brown did see a couple passes thrown his way, but they were negated by penalty. On the bright side, he did get the start, and almost all of J.J. Nelson's production came in garbage time. Still, Jaron is unlikely to return fantasy value while John Brown is healthy.
Sun, Sep 10, 2017 05:43:00 PM

Jaron Brown is listed as the second wide receiver on the Cardinals depth chart for Week 1.

He did get the start in the third preseason game, but coach Bruce Arians continues to rotate guys opposite Larry Fitzgerald in two-wide sets and John Brown did play well to close out the preseason. On top of that, David Johnson is going to take away plenty of targets, so there are a lot of things working against Jaron to make him a desirable fantasy target.

Jaron Brown caught 2-of-4 targets for nine yards in the Cardinals' third preseason game.

Brown started alongside Larry Fitzgerald and J.J. Nelson, but Arizona rotated five receivers with the first-team offense. Brown has been talked up by coach Bruce Arians, but is coming off a torn ACL and is a pedestrian talent. If John Brown is healthy, he should have no trouble leaping Jaron out wide.
