John Brown (toe) has been ruled out for Week 15.
J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown will continue as Arizona's primary outside receivers with Larry Fitzgerald in the slot. Brown will be an interesting case as a 2018 free agent as a highly-talented player with significant durability questions. Dec 15 - 3:23 PM

John Brown (toe) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

He's sat out the last three games with turf toe. Even if he returns against Washington in Week 15, Brown won't be on the fantasy radar.
Dec 13 - 4:42 PM

John Brown (toe) is out for Week 14 against the Titans.

Brown returned to a limited practice on Thursday but wasn't seen at Friday's session. It's possible he suffered a setback with his turf toe. Sunday will mark Brown's third straight absence. He can't be relied on in fantasy.
Dec 8 - 3:09 PM

John Brown (toe) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Brown has missed the past two weeks. This gives him a shot to return against the Titans, but we would consider him more doubtful than questionable. Even if Brown does play, it's hard to see him cracking the top 60 in Rotoworld's Week 14 receiver ranks.
Dec 7 - 4:28 PM

John Brown (toe) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

At this point, it would make more sense for us to wait to blurb Brown again until he actually does practice. He's still week to week with turf toe.
Dec 6 - 3:42 PM

John Brown (toe) is out for Week 13 against the Rams.

Brown remains week to week with turf toe. He can be safely dropped in most formats.
Dec 1 - 3:20 PM

John Brown (toe) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Still battling turf toe, Brown is looking at yet another absence. Larry Fitzgerald and J.J. Nelson will be Blaine Gabbert's main targets Sunday against the Rams.
Dec 1 - 2:11 PM

John Brown (toe) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

He's still week to week with turf toe. J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown are filling in as the Cardinals' outside receivers with a little of rookie Chad Williams.
Nov 29 - 1:55 PM

Cardinals declared WR John Brown, QB Matt Barkley, WR Brittan Golden, WR Carlton Agudosi, S Rudy Ford, OL Max Tuerk, and DT Corey Peters inactive for Week 12 against the Jaguars.

Brown had already been ruled out with turf toe.
Nov 26 - 3:05 PM

John Brown (toe) is out for Week 12 against the Jaguars.

As expected. Brown is dealing with turf toe and didn't practice all week. Always hurt and often plagued by poor quarterback play, Brown remains well off the fantasy radar.
Nov 24 - 2:48 PM

John Brown (toe) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Brown should be officially ruled out for Sunday's game with Jacksonville when final injury reports are released later today. He's been battling a case of turf toe. Rookie Chad Williams should see more run in Brown's absence.
Nov 24 - 1:37 PM

John Brown (toe) is not practicing Wednesday.

Brown is battling turf toe and is expected to miss time. In his absence, Chad Williams could see more reps behind Larry Fitzgerald, Jaron Brown, and J.J. Nelson. Brown can be dropped in season-long leagues.
Nov 22 - 3:33 PM

John Brown has been diagnosed with turf toe, and coach Bruce Arians believes he could "miss time."

Arians spoke about Brown missing time as mostly a formality, saying Chad Williams would get a look in Week 12. Brown has been banged up for most of 2017 but missed "just" two games so far. Turf toe can linger for weeks. With only two weeks left in the fantasy regular season, Brown is safely droppable in re-draft leagues.
Nov 20 - 2:12 PM

John Brown hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 18 yards in the Cardinals' Week 11 loss to the Texans.

Brown saw two early targets including a screen, but that was about all we heard from him the rest of the game. Larry Fitzgerald is the only Cardinals receiver to trust in fantasy at this point, and that will be especially true next week against the Jaguars.
Nov 19 - 4:33 PM

John Brown (questionable, back) is active for Week 11 against the Texans.

Brown has a great matchup against the Texans, but given the quarterback situation and how he has played this year, shouldn't be started this week.
