Player Outlook
The new Cardinals receiver should be considered draftable as a top-24 receiver thanks to Brown's reunion with old pal Kyler Murray. Arizona's offense is way more pass-friendly than Baltimore's, and Murray ranked in the top five in deep-ball passing rate and deep-ball adjusted completion rate in 2021. Unfortunately, it must be noted that Brown had nearly as many drops (three) as receptions (five) in 2021 on 30 deep-ball targets. Here's the reality: Brown is expected to play in the same kind of role Christian Kirk was in last year, a gig that saw Kirk average 7.3 targets in games Hopkins left early or missed and 5.0 targets in games Hopkins was in. Kirk didn't always see deep-ball targets and blossomed into a volume-friendly No. 3 receiver. Brown, however, is one of the league's most explosive receivers and his familiarity with Murray dating back to their days at Oklahoma should put them in instant rhythm. There's a real chance that Brown helps Fantasy managers rocket off to a great start through October before providing still-good numbers in November and December once Hopkins comes back. Bank on him getting picked in Round 5.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Takes part in individual drills

    Brown (hamstring) took part in individual drills off to the side during Monday's practice and is expected to return to full-team work by Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury suggested that Brown would increase his activity Tuesday, and if all goes well, the wideout will be back to full speed by the middle of the week. Even if that comes to fruition, Brown is unlikely to play in Friday's preseason opener in Cincinnati, given the lack of full practice sessions he has under his belt up to this point in training camp.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Not practicing yet

    Brown (hamstring) isn't practicing Thursday but is down on the field watching his teammates, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Coach Kliff Kingsbury said earlier this week that he hoped to get Brown back in individual drills by Friday and back to full participation by Monday. That could still happen, though it isn't looking great at this point. Brown's recent arrest for speeding is less of an issue, as it didn't cost him any practice time and isn't likely to lead to an NFL suspension.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Gets arrested Wednesday

    Brown (hamstring) was arrested Wednesday in Phoenix on criminal speeding charges, Jose M. Romero of The Arizona Republic reports. Brown has been slowed by a hamstring issue during the first week-plus of training camp, kicking it off on the active/non-football injury list before returning to drills Tuesday. At that time, head coach Kliff Kingsbury noted that Brown was being "eased" back in, but he was expected to be a full participant by early next week. Per Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, Brown wasn't present to the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, and the reason for his absence has now been revealed. When he's back on the field at 100 percent is still in question, but a legal matter now is plaguing him as well.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: No full practice until next week

    Brown (hamstring) will be eased back into practice after the Cardinals removed him from the non-football injury list Tuesday, with coach Kliff Kingsbury saying the wideout may not be a full participant until Monday, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports. Brown was on the NFI list for the first week of training camp after injuring his hamstring in a training session over the summer. He spent plenty of time on the injury report in three seasons with Baltimore but missed only three of a possible 52 games (including playoffs). The Cardinals don't seem too worried about his current issue, counting on Brown to be ready for Week 1 while fellow wideout DeAndre Hopkins serves the first game of a six-week suspension.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Removed from NFI list

    Brown (hamstring) was activated from the non-football injury list Tuesday morning, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Brown can now practice with his Cardinal teammates, after missing the first week of training camp due to a hamstring injury he reportedly suffered during a private workout over the summer. He may be eased into practice with his new team, as there's a high recurrence rate for soft-tissue injuries -- and perhaps even more so for speed-dependent players. Brown has nearly six weeks to ramp up before Arizona's season opener against Kansas City, at which point teammate DeAndre Hopkins will begin serving a six-game suspension.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: May practice next week

    Coach Kliff Kingsbury is hopeful Brown (hamstring) returns to practice "next week at some point," Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. "I don't know when, but that's our hope," Kingsbury added Friday. The Cardinals placed Brown on the active/non-football injury list Tuesday due to a hamstring issue, giving him a chance to practice at any point during training camp once he's healthy. With more than a month before the regular season, he'll have plenty of time to reach 100 percent, but getting back on the field will be the first step in that process. Once he's available, Brown is poised to serve as the team's top wide receiver Week 1, when DeAndre Hopkins' six-game suspension kicks in.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Opening camp on NFI list

    Brown has been placed on the Cardinals' non-football injury list due to a hamstring issue, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. The wideout is eligible to come off the list whenever he is ready to practice, but Brown is now slated to miss some time with Arizona's training camp about to open. Once he's able to return to the field, Brown will look to cement his key role in an offense that will open the coming season minus DeAndre Hopkins, who has been suspended for six games out of the gate for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. While Hopkins is out, Brown will be in line to serve as Kyler Murray's top downfield option, with A.J. Green, Rondale Moore and Antoine Wesley also in the mix for targets.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: On pace for volume sans Hopkins

    Brown may need to take on a larger role in the Cardinals offense to begin the upcoming season after DeAndre Hopkins was suspended six games Monday for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Lindsay Jones of The Athletic reports. Arizona made a splash on Day 1 of the 2022 Draft when it acquired Brown and a third-round pick for the team's first-rounder. He was slated to operate with Hopkins and A.J. Green at wide receiver in the base offense, but Brown now should assume No. 1 duties as of Week 1 of the campaign. Brown is coming off the first 1,000-yard season of his pro career in 2021 and previously worked with quarterback Kyler Murray at Oklahoma in 2018, compiling a 75-1,318-10 line in a high-powered scheme. With Hopkins out of the picture for six contests, Brown's primary competition for targets will be Green, Rondale Moore and Antoine Wesley at wide receiver, tight ends Zach Ertz and rookie second-round selection Trey McBride and top running back James Conner.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: To receive fifth-year option

    GM Steve Keim said the Cardinals will exercise the fifth-year option on Brown's rookie contract after acquiring the wide receiver in a draft-day trade with the Ravens on Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. As part of the exchange, Baltimore received the 23rd overall pick in this year's draft, while Arizona gained the speedy Brown and pick No. 100 on Friday. Brown has experience playing with Kyler Murray at Oklahoma, and the former is coming off a three-year stretch in which he upped his catch and yardage totals each season, culminating with a 91-1,008-6 line on 146 targets in 2021. With the Cards, Brown joins a group of wide receivers that boasts DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green and Rondale Moore, along with tight end Zach Ertz and running back James Conner.

  • Cardinals' Marquise Brown: Gets moved to Arizona

    The Ravens dealt Brown and a 2022 third-round pick to the Cardinals on Thursday for the 23rd overall selection in this year's draft, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The Cardinals added another big-play threat to their receiving corps, but instead of bringing in a rookie via the draft they're reuniting Brown with college teammate Kyler Murray. While working together at Oklahoma in 2018, Brown was among Murray's top wideouts en route to the latter winning the Heisman Trophy. Since then, Brown was a first-round pick of the Ravens in 2019, increasing his catch and yardage totals in each of his three pro campaigns. Last year, he wrangled 91 of 146 passes for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games. With the move to Arizona, Brown joins a skill-position group that features DeAndre Hopkins, James Conner, Zach Ertz, A.J. Green and Rondale Moore, among others.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Fifth-year option likely coming

    General manager Eric DeCosta said Friday he expects the Ravens to pick up Brown's fifth-year option, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Baltimore will need to make a decision on Brown's fifth-year option by May, and picking up the deal would keep the speedy wideout in house through 2023. Though Brown did lose steam in terms of production down the stretch of the 2021 campaign, he spent much of that time operating with Tyler Huntley under center instead of Lamar Jackson (ankle), and also battled injuries of his own. A more optimistic view of Brown's third-year efforts, which included his first 1,000-yard season, is that the 24-year-old looked like a legitimate No. 1 option during the first half of the year. Through the first nine contests, Brown exceeded the century mark three times and caught six touchdowns.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Three catches in finale

    Brown brought in three of seven targets for 27 yards in the Ravens' 16-13 overtime loss to the Steelers on Sunday. Brown was a distant second to Mark Andrews in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the afternoon to close out the campaign rather quietly. The third-year speedster did manage to get over 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career with Sunday's production, finishing at 1,008 alongside 91 receptions over 16 games. Brown's campaign closed with back-to-back three-reception efforts, but considering he played with Tyler Huntley and not Lamar Jackson (ankle) in those contests, the downturn is largely explainable.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Cleared for Sunday

    Brown (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Steelers. The speedy wideout returned to a full practice Friday after missing Thursday's session, which sets the stage for him to suit up this weekend. In the process, Brown will once again be catching passes from QB Tyler Huntley, with Lamar Jackson (ankle) ruled out by the Ravens. Brown is coming off a Week 17 effort in which he caught three of his eight targets for 28 yards in a loss to the Rams.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Added to injury report

    Brown (ankle) missed practice Thursday. Brown practiced fully Wednesday, so his status now is worth monitoring as Sunday's game against the Steelers approaches. Unless the speedy wideout practices fully Friday, he'll likely head into the weekend with a Week 18 injury designation.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Ineffective yet again

    Brown caught three passes for 28 yards on eight targets against the Rams on Sunday. It's been a brutal month for Brown, who's seen 39 targets over his last four games yet has just 156 yards to show for it. Tyler Huntley doesn't have much downfield ability as a passer, so that's likely made it tougher to get the speedster involved. Moreover, Brown's effectiveness Sunday may have been impacted by him missing practice with an illness earlier in the week. It might be difficult for Brown to maximize his fantasy value if Lamar Jackson (ankle) sits out again in Week 18.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Good to go Sunday

    Brown (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams. The Ravens tagged Brown as questionable for the Week 17 contest after he was unable to practice Thursday and Friday while battling a non-COVID-19-related illness, but the wideout made enough progress leading into Sunday's game to avoid inactive status. Though he's not expected to face any limitations against Los Angeles, Brown will likely draw shadow coverage from star Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey for most of the contest. In addition to being followed by Ramsey, Brown will have to make do without Lamar Jackson (ankle) for the third week in a row. In each of the previous three games with either Tyler Huntley or Josh Johnson under center, Brown has produced a 20-128-0 receiving line on 31 targets.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Questionable for Week 17

    Brown (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams after missing practices Thursday and Friday. Brown's status is thus worth closely monitoring, though fortunately for those considering him in Week 17 fantasy lineups, the Ravens kick off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. If he ends up out or limited this weekend, added opportunities would be available for Sammy Watkins and Rashod Bateman.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Remains sidelined Friday

    Brown (illness) wasn't present for Friday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Back-to-back practice absences recorded by the wideout are concerning, though it remains to be seen how the team lists his his Week 17 availability. Added clarity with regard to Brown's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Rams should arrive upon the posting of the Ravens' final Friday injury report and/or transactions.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Misses practice Thursday

    Brown didn't practice Thursday due to an illness. Brown was a full practice participant Wednesday, so his absence Thursday is notable. At this stage, it's unclear if the wideout's illness could impact his availability for Sunday's game against the Rams, but a return to the field, in any capacity, on the part of Brown on Friday would be reassuring to those considering him in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

  • Ravens' Marquise Brown: Another inefficient game

    Brown caught five passes for 44 yards on nine targets against Cincinnati on Sunday. As the Ravens' smallest receiver, Brown is the easiest one for a quarterback to miss, and he tends to suffer when playing with a quarterback who struggles to throw downfield. Lamar Jackson definitely has more of an inclination to throw deep than Tyler Huntley (illness) or Sunday's starter Josh Johnson, so it's not terribly surprising that Brown's efficiency fell off with that change at quarterback. It's not clear who will be taking snaps for the Ravens when they face the Rams in Week 17.
