Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Hauls in three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson accumulated three catches (on seven targets) for 43 yards and lost five yards on his only carry during Sunday's 17-3 defeat to the Lions.

Like the rest of the receiving corps, Nelson's workload increased due to Christian Kirk's broken foot. Unfortunately for Nelson, he remained behind undrafted rookie Trent Sherfield in the pecking order. Behind Larry Fitzgerald (67 of 70 snaps on offense), Sherfield (65) was the next most utilized, followed by Nelson (48) and Jalen Tolliver (12). After accumulating 22 catches of 20-plus yards in his first three season, Nelson has yet to add to that total this year. However, an increase in volume could help him approach his previous standing as a big-play threat.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Continues to be unutilized
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was unable to reel in his lone target during Sunday's 23-21 loss to Oakland.

Nelson has now failed to catch his only target in a game in three straight contests and failed to log a catch or a carry for the first time since Week 5. This, mind you, was against a middle-of-the-pack Oakland pass defense that had been picked apart this season. Things should get even tougher Sunday against a Chargers defense on a roll.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Catchless in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 26-14 loss to Kansas City.

Arizona's offense might have a new coordinator, but -- through two games -- the points haven't been pouring in. The fourth-year speedster is feeling the pain. Never much of a volume target, Nelson at least used to be able to be counted on as a big-play threat with a career 18.6-yards-per-catch average during his first three seasons. He's yet to record even a 10-yard catch this season. It's unlikely, but if he were to turn it around, Sunday's matchup with Oakland would be the ideal opportunity as the Raiders have given up a league-high 13.9 yards per reception.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Catchless in win over 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson had an eight-yard run and was unable to haul in his only target during Sunday's 18-15 win over the 49ers.

The Cardinals have a new offensive coordinator, but the change doesn't appear to mean much for Nelson -- at least in the short term. The fourth-year target has more catchless games (five) than games with a reception (three) thus far this season and has reached double-digit total yardage just once this season. The Cardinals offense seems to be making small strides and has a favorable matchup coming up against a leaky Chiefs defense Sunday, but Nelson doesn't look to be a viable factor.

Cardinals' J.J. Nelson: Posts 15 scrimmage yards Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson compiled one rush for seven yards and two receptions (on four targets) for eight yards during Thursday's 45-10 defeat to the Broncos.

Benefiting from his most targets and first carry of the campaign, Nelson surpassed 10 yards from scrimmage for the first time in 2018. His production isn't even sniffing that of the first three years of his career under former coach Bruce Arians, who used the wideout's blazing speed to keep defenses honest. With a change from Mike McCoy to Byron Leftwich at offensive coordinator, perhaps Nelson can begin to approach his marks of 18.6 YPC and 8.5 YPT from before this season.
