Those who selected John Brown in fantasy drafts last year got burned. He battled sickle-cell issues that limited his snaps, and he was bothered by a cyst that's since been removed from his spine. Brown is healthy now, and there could be considerable value in 2017 to those who look for a bounce-back.

"I'm feeling like myself," says Brown. Bruce Arians says Brown is now able to run routes he couldn't last year, while Carson Palmer says he looks completely different -- "heavier, stronger, more explosive."

Reading the article, it's clear that Brown was really limited a year ago -- he couldn't lift weights or even play with his daughter without needing to sleep. If his health issues were behind his struggles (and that's what it sounds like) a bounce-back season looks very possible.

Set aside Brown's disappointing 2016, and look at his breakout 2015 season. His 15.4 yards per reception was better than all but five wideouts who caught at least 60 passes that year.
