Cardinals HC Bruce Arians described J.J. Nelson as "one of the starters" on Monday. That was certainly the case in Sunday's game against the Panthers, when Nelson played 92% of the offensive snaps and saw a team-high 12 targets. He parlayed those into an 8-79-2 line. Nelson's volume figures to take a hit when and if WRs John Brown and Michael Floyd get healthy, but he'll at least emerge from the Week 9 bye as a WR3 with upside.

Cardinals WR J.J. Nelson is more comfortable heading into his 2nd NFL season.  "Now I can just go out and play fast," he said. "I feel like (last season) was a confidence builder. Going in really not knowing what to do, as the season went along I felt like I got really confident and pretty good at knowing what I was supposed to do out there."  Nelson flashed his big-play ability during the 2nd half of last season, posting lines of 3-70, 4-124-1 and 2-34-1.  HC Bruce Arians has been impressed with his work this offseason.  "Every day, he's making a big play or two," Arians said.  "He has a very unique skill in tracking the ball that the great ones have when the ball's coming over your opposite shoulder. When you have a little fast guy that can do that, you have a special one."  Nelson will need an injury to at least 1 of Michael Floyd, John Brown or Larry Fitzgerald to emerge as a reliable fantasy option this year.  But he makes for a fine pick at the end of best-ball drafts.
