Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Reaches 500 yards again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson reeled in 29 of 61 passes for 508 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games during the 2017 season.

Nelson upheld his stature as a hit-or-miss option, with far more of the latter than former in his third NFL campaign. As of Week 5, he had two touchdowns and two games with at least 80 yards receiving. Over the final 11 contests, though, he didn't reach the end zone once, had no more than two catches in a given game, and was held below 46 yards in every outing. No matter, his ability to rip off yards in big chunks helped Nelson reach 500 yards through the air for a second consecutive year. Nelson is one of three Cardinals wide receivers under contract next season -- also, Larry Fitzgerald and Chad Williams -- meaning the pecking order at the position will be in flux until the offseason program begins in earnest in April and May.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Accumulates 53 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson snagged one of three targets for a 46-yard gain and added a seven-yard run during Sunday's 20-15 loss to Washington.

The game snapped an eight-game streak during which Nelson failed to total 50 yards in a game. He opened the season with two such performances in his first five contests, but he's struggled with the quarterback carousel and scope of his own role this season. Don't expect the return of Drew Stanton to make things any better. In Stanton's two starts earlier this season, Nelson combined for two catches and 32 yards off six targets.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Posts two receptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson gathered in two of three passes for 26 yards during Sunday's 12-7 win versus the Titans.

After Larry Fitzgerald's five catches for 44 yards on 62 (of 65) offensive snaps, Nelson was second among Cardinals wideouts in receiving yards, despite Jaron Brown (15 yards) out-snapping him, 55-40. Nelson has actually earned three of his five greatest workloads of the season the past trio of games, but it hasn't translated to the game log, which displays five receptions (on 15 targets) for 82 yards. His explosiveness also hasn't shown through, as evidenced by one reception of 20-plus yards during that stretch. Due to the lack of production, he defines what it means to be hit or miss, with more of the latter than the former at this point in his career.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the Titans, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Despite a generous 90 offensive snaps the last two games, Nelson hasn't profited from 12 combined looks from Blaine Gabbert, gathering in three for 56 yards. Nelson's opponent, the Titans, have allowed the second-fewest catches of 20-plus yards this season, but wideouts have accounted for 15 touchdowns against this unit, good for third-most in the NFL.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest versus the Titans, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

The Cardinals placed limitations on Nelson's practice regimen this week due to a knee injury. His ability to take part Wednesday through Friday bodes well for his availability this weekend, but the potential exists for his status to come down to Sunday's 4:05 p.m. EST kickoff.
