Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: No catches in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson failed to bring in his only target but rushed once for 16 yards in Sunday's 38-33 win over the Buccaneers.

Nelson was cleared of his hamstring-related injury designation heading into the contest, but he wasn't able to make any appreciable impact. The speedster's sole contribution was on an end around, as Larry Fitzgerald and, to a much lesser extent, John Brown largely dominated the targets on the afternoon. Nelson's week-to-week fantasy upside remains substantial due to his game-breaking speed, but he can often be big-play-dependent as far as his production. He'll look to bounce back in a Week 7 tilt against the Rams.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Ready for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring) was a full participant at Friday's practice and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

With the Cardinals boasting their full stable of wideouts at full health, Nelson logged just 53 percent of offensive snaps in last week's 34-7 loss to the Eagles. He nonetheless caught four passes for 80 yards on six targets and also added one carry for 14 yards, notably fumbling the ball out of the end zone for a touchback during garbage time. Nelson still has some appeal thanks to his big-play ability, but it was discouraging to see him log fewer snaps than both John Brown and Jaron Brown last week. Expectations should be kept in check, even for a matchup with the leaky Tampa Bay pass defense.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Limited practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Nelson is entering his fourth consecutive week of practice with a hamstring issue, but he's so far been able to avoid an absence on game day. On the season, he's picked up 51.4 percent of the offensive snaps and ranks fourth on the Cardinals with 26 targets, yet he sits in a tie for first in touchdowns (two) and second in receiving yards (277). While a larger workload may be warranted due to his potency, Nelson's hamstring issue may be holding him back at the moment.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Goes for 80 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson nabbed four of six targets for 80 yards in Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Eagles. He also rushed for 14 yards and lost a fumble during the contest.

Nelson narrowly missed scoring a late touchdown, the referee determining that he fumbled the ball short of the goal line. The play was a sour note for what was a promising return to prominence after two sluggish games for Nelson. As with everything in Arizona at the moment, adjustments continue to be made in the absence of David Johnson. On one hand, it will be tough for the spindly speedster to consistently make the big plays that his production depends on with opposing defenses unafraid of the run. On the other, Arizona is going to likely need to look for the big play to spark an offense that doesn't have much in the way of consistent threats.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Active in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring/tooth) is active for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Nelson has quieted significantly since a busy first two contests in which he posted 10 receptions (on 13 targets) for 163 yards and two touchdowns. For the second consecutive week of practice, he's been hampered by a hamstring injury, which could keep him in the 3-to-4 target range of the past two games. Still, he's a threat to take the top off a defense on any given play, as evidenced by a career mark of 18.3 YPC.
