Fantasy Tip: Brown ranked 22nd in standard scoring formats among wide receivers last year, but he's currently the 32nd receiver off draft boards. Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd will get their share of targets, but Brown deserves more attention heading into 2016 in one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL.

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu's contract talks have been put on hold, but that doesn't mean a deal won't be reached before training camp, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. If a deal is reached, it's expected to be worth around $11 million per season, which would make him the highest-paid safety and put him among the highest-paid defensive backs.

Fantasy Tip: Jermaine Gresham and Fells should be Arizona's top two tight ends this season, but neither has proven to be a consistent fantasy performer. Draft any Cardinals tight end as a backup or bye-week replacement.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is expected to get a lion's share of the work, but RBs Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington each have skillsets which could help the offense. In fact, head coach Bruce Arians hinted Tuesday, June 7, that two backs could be on the field at the same time. "When I first came here, that's something B.A. told me he wanted to do," Chris Johnson said. "It started off with me getting here late (in training camp), then Andre getting hurt early and me getting hurt. It was hard to get two of us on the field at one time, but that's something we've really been working hard on."
Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals have three talented backs, but David Johnson is the one you'll want to pick first on draft day, with CJ2K as a pick for depth and Andre Ellington as a reserve in PPR formats.
