Week 7 Outlook
Brittan Golden survived the last round of roster cuts to make it onto the 53 man roster.
Darren Urban did not expect Golden to make the team. The sixth man out of six, Golden will be dependent on injuries and the Cards continued reliance on four receiver sets if he wants to see the field. He's a long way from fantasy relevance.
Darren Urban doesn't believe Brittan Golden will make the Cardinals 53 man roster.
Urban projects the Birds keeping five wide receivers, namely Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson. Citing injuries at tight end and the offensive line, he has Golden as the 6th wideout. Nelson has flashed more chemistry with Carson Palmer over the preseason, but outside of Fitz, Floyd and John Brown it's hard to see any fantasy appeal for J.J. or Jaron.
Golden recorded a team high five receptions in Arizona's preseason victory over Oakland on Sunday, finishing with 36 yards.
After registering zero catches in the first preseason game, Golden has eight in his last two, but for only 68 yards. Posting a misleadingly high average yards per reception of 34 over his career, Golden isn't worth a look in redraft leagues.
Brittan Golden was held without a catch for the Cardinals in their defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Golden seemed to spend most of his evening bemoaning the lack of flags for pass interference. In the battle between him and J.J. Nelson for a roster spot, chalk this one up as a win for J.J.
Brittan Golden has enjoyed a good start to training camp, making several eye catching grabs in Sunday's practice.
Urban acknowledges that the Cards are not likely to keep six wide receivers, meaning that Golden is looking up at Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and the two Browns. It's likely to come down between him and J.J. Nelson for the 5th receiver spot. Whoever wins the gig, it's hard to see them even approaching fantasy significance.
