    Cardinals' John Brown: Reels in just two passes Sunday

    Brown reeled in just two of eight targets for 23 yards during Sunday's NFC championship game loss in Carolina. In advance of the contest, Brown was held out of some drills due to a shoulder injury, but ultimately he turned in a full practice before the end of the week. His dismal performance Sunday can be attributed to the Panthers' concerted effort to nullify the deep ball. On the other hand, Carson Palmer attempted to force the issue after falling behind 24-7, and two interceptions followed on balls intended for Brown. During the regular season, though, Brown made progress on every front from his rookie campaign, recording 65 catches (on 101 targets) for 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Active Sunday

    Brown (shoulder) is active for Sunday's NFC championship game at Carolina, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. Navigating through the week as a limited practice participant due to a shoulder issue, Brown paved the way for active status in this all-important matchup with a full showing Friday. Including the Cardinals' divisional round victory versus the Packers, he averaged 9.9 YPT this season, which should translate to this weekend's box score against a Panthers secondary that's without Charles Tillman (knee) and Bene Benwikere (lower leg).

    Cardinals' John Brown: Likely to play Sunday

    Brown is listed as probable for Sunday's NFC Championship game versus the Panthers. Brown was a limited to start this week, ensuring his shoulder would be rested enough to play in Sunday's all-important game. Despite the injury, Brown's top-tier speed could pose big problems for the Panthers' secondary once kickoff rolls around.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Limited Wednesday

    Brown (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports. Contained to individual drills, Brown's availability is thus worth monitoring as Sunday's NFC championship game approaches. If he suits up, he'll face a Panthers secondary that conceded three touchdowns to Seahawks wideouts in the divisional round.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Racks up five receptions Saturday

    Brown racked up five receptions (on nine targets) for 82 yards and one carry for two yards during Saturday's divisional round win against the Packers. Being a wide receiver in Arizona is a fruitful endeavor under the watchful eye of head coach Bruce Arians, and Brown certainly got in the act as the Cardinals pulled out an overtime victory. However, Brown was well behind Larry Fitzgerald's eight-catch, 176-yard, one-touchdown outburst, while Michael Floyd made the most of his seven targets, reeling in two touchdowns despite just 26 yards receiving. The trio should be able to prosper in the NFC Championship Game against a Panthers secondary that lost Charles Tillman (knee) and Bene Benwikere (lower leg) down the stretch, and Brown in particular should be to take advantage of his usual dose of targets with Floyd expected to draw standout corner Josh Norman.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Four receptions for 45 yards

    Brown caught just four of 11 targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 36-6 loss to Seattle. Brown wasn't able to get much going Sunday, but it wasn't all his fault, as the entire Cardinals' offense, including QB Carson Palmer, really struggled against an inspired Seahawks' defense. The second-year wideout had taken a minor backseat to Michael Floyd over the previous four games, although Brown had scored in each of the last three weeks, and has been generally more involved than Larry Fitzgerald as of late. Floyd was a complete non-factor Sunday though, and Fitzgerald had one of his better games in a while, catching a touchdown, so it's hard to handicap the trio of WRs for those participating in playoff leagues. The Cardinals have a first-round bye, however, so you won't be able to use Brown, or any of their other talented wideouts, next weekend.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Catches a TD in blowout win

    Brown caught three of four targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-8 blowout win over the Packers. Brown's seven-yard score came with just six seconds left in the first half, which was fortuitous for his fantasy owners because the Cardinals were in cruise control in the second half (they returned a couple of Aaron Rodgers' fumbles for touchdowns). The Cardinals have a shot at homefield advantage in the NFC Playoffs, so expect Brown to have more opportunities next week against Seattle, assuming the game is more competitive than Sunday.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Scores touchdown despite drops

    Brown caught three pass for 38 yards and a touchdown on a team-high nine targets in Sunday's 40-17 win over the Eagles. Though he had little trouble burning the inexperienced Philadelphia cornerbacks, Brown somehow dropped two deep balls and a pass in the end zone before the conclusion of the first half. It appeared his potentially-huge night would then end as a dud, but he finally came through late in the third quarter, scoring a 16-yard touchdown on a nice catch-and-run. Given his excellent track record of avoiding drops, Sunday's performance can safely be written off as a fluke. Brown will likely get back to his usual reliable self in Week 16 against the Packers.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Scores 65-yard touchdown

    Brown (hamstring) caught four passes for 78 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Thursday's 23-20 win over the Vikings. He may not have done a whole lot else, but Brown's 65-yard touchdown was an impressive catch-and-run that allowed him to showcase his top-notch speed. He's been shockingly consistent for a guy who's playing next to target-monster Larry Fitzgerald, thanks in large part to his elite per-target production in a high-powered Arizona offense. With the Cardinals showing no sign of slowing down, there's reason to believe that each of Brown, Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd can have a nice game in Week 15 against the Eagles.

    Cardinals' John Brown: Active Thursday

    Brown (hamstring) is listed as active Thursday against the Vikings, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. Outside of Jermaine Gresham (knee), Carson Palmer will have the rest of the Cardinals' receiving corps at his disposal, namely Larry Fitzgerald (ankle), Michael Floyd (hamstring), and Brown. While Brown may not be targeted as often as the other two, he boasts a noteworthy 11.4 YPT this season.
