4. John Brown, Wide Receiver
John Brown was a pleasant surprise for the Cardinals last year. With a majority of defenses double teaming Larry Fitzgerald, it opened up opportunities for John Brown and his 4.34 40 speed to get past the defense.
Last season, John Brown scored 5 touchdowns to go along with 696 receiving yards. All of Brown’s touchdown receptions came from either Carson Palmer or Drew Stanton, so except Brown’s numbers to increase significantly with a healthy Palmer behind a monster offensive line.
Though Brown only scored 99 total fantasy points last season, don’t let this shy you away from drafting Brown, with a year under the system, and a healthy quarterback except Brown to be a fixture in your fantasy starting lineup.
