Andy Reid Praises Marquise Brown

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid praised new wide receiver Marquise Brown at organized team activities on Wednesday. "Hollywood (Brown) does a nice job at receiver. Looks like he and Pat are developing a chemistry," Reid said. Anytime Mahomes is developing chemistry with a receiver, fantasy managers should take notice. The speedy Brown made a highlight-reel, one-handed catch during 7-on-7 drills on Wednesday and appears to have put the heel injury that bothered him last year in the rearview mirror. Tight end Travis Kelce is going to remain a favorite target of Mahomes in 2024 as long as he's healthy, but the 26-year-old Brown has an opportunity to become heavily involved as well, especially with Rashee Rice likely to be hit with a suspension from the league. The former 25th overall pick by Arizona in 2019 out of Oklahoma had a 1,000-yard receiving season in his final season in Baltimore in 2021.

Marquise Brown Could Have Lucrative Role In KC

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach acknowledged that new wide receiver Marquise Brown could have a lucrative role with the team in 2024. With Brown now on the roster, the Chiefs feel better about their situation at the receiver position prior to the draft than they would have otherwise. Brown's role could be even more important with Rashee Rice's uncertain future following his arrest on charges stemming from a car crash in March. As things stand right now, Rice, Brown and Justin Watson are the team's top three receivers, with Skyy Moore and Kadarius Toney behind them. The 26-year-old Brown, the former 25th overall pick in 2019 by the Cardinals out of Oklahoma, had two disappointing seasons in the desert in which he played in just 26 games due to injuries. But if he can stay healthy in 2024 and Rice faces a suspension, he could be a real value pick in fantasy drafts.

Marquise Brown Signs One-Year Deal With The Chiefs

Free agent wide receiver Marquise Brown signed a one-year, $11 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday. Brown will pair with superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes and provide the Chiefs a big play wideout the team has been lacking since Tyreek Hill. Brown will be Kansas City's third option in the passing game behind Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice. He provides Mahomes with a reliable, speedy target and should bounce back in 2024 after managing 51 catches for 574 yards and four touchdowns with the Cardinals last season. It will be tough for Hollywood to replicate his final season with Baltimore, where he hauled in 91 passes for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns. Brown should see a fantasy boost with his new team and is borderline WR3 heading into early 2024 drafts.

Marquise Brown Set To Leave In Free Agency

Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent wide receiver Marquise Brown is set to leave in free agency this offseason, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. General manager Monti Ossenfort can upgrade the receiver position high in the draft, as the Cardinals have 13 overall picks in 2024. Brown, 26, finished last season on Injured Reserve due to a heel injury and played in 14 games in his second year in the desert. He finished with just 51 receptions on 101 targets for 574 yards and four touchdowns, and it didn't help that quarterback Kyler Murray got a late start to the season while rehabbing from a torn ACL in 2022. The former first-round pick of the Ravens in 2019 out of Oklahoma is an injury risk, but he could be a draft bargain in 2024 if he stays healthy and lands in a good situation.

Marquise Brown Goes On Injured Reserve

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) has been placed on Injured Reserve, according to head coach Jonathan Gannon. It means that Brown will miss the final two games of the 2023 season after aggravating a heel injury in Week 15. Injuries were obviously partly to blame, but the 26-year-old had the worst season of his career in 2023, finishing with 51 catches for 574 yards and four touchdowns on 101 targets in 14 games. He ended up playing only three full games with quarterback Kyler Murray this year and only had one notable performance while working with Murray. There will be a lot of changes coming for the Cardinals franchise this offseason, and Brown could very well find himself playing somewhere else in 2024, especially since he'll be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Marquise Brown Picks Up Second Straight DNP

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) was listed as a non-participant in practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Brown missed the Week 16 loss to the Chicago Bears and was lifted from his last two games early due to his heel injury. In fact, because of those early exits, the 26-year-old has not caught a pass since Week 12 (Arizona had a bye in Week 14). With nothing left to play for in 2023 besides draft positioning, the Cardinals have no reason to rush Brown back into the fold in these last two weeks of the regular season. Even if Brown were to return to practice on Friday and play this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, he'd be far too risky for fantasy managers to rely on with a championship on the line. Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch and rookie Michael Wilson could see added opportunities if Brown misses a second straight game.

Marquise Brown Misses Wednesday's Practice

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) was listed as a non-participant in the team's practice on Wednesday. Brown aggravated an ongoing heel injury in Week 15 and didn't practice last week or play in the Week 16 loss to the Chicago Bears. It doesn't look like the 26-year-old is on track to play this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles and he hasn't caught a pass since Week 12, so fantasy managers shouldn't be planning on relying on him as they battle for a championship this weekend. There's really no reason for the Cardinals to bring Brown back for the final two regular season games if he's not fully healthy. Another absence from Brown would create more opportunities for tight end Trey McBride and wideouts Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch and rookie Michael Wilson.

Marquise Brown Won't Play In Week 16

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) has been ruled out for Week 16 versus the Chicago Bears, head coach Jonathan Gannon announced. The injury limited Brown to just 32 percent of the Cardinals' offensive snaps last weekend, and he also missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday. It's been a frustrating year for the 26-year-old who has just 51 catches, 574 yards, and four touchdowns through parts of 14 games. Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch, and Michael Wilson will all see increased opportunities with Brown sidelined this weekend, as will breakout tight end Trey McBride.

Marquise Brown, Greg Dortch Miss Another Practice

Arizona Cardinals wide receivers Marquise Brown (heel) and Greg Dortch (shoulder) were not seen in the portion of practice open to the media on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Brown has exited the team's last two games due to a heel injury and hasn't caught a pass since Week 12. The 26-year-old will have to practice on Friday to avoid missing Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. Fantasy managers in their semifinal matchups in Week 16 shouldn't be planning on relying on Brown. Dortch is also in jeopardy of sitting out this weekend, although he hasn't been on the fantasy radar at all to begin with in 2023. If both Brown and Dortch are sidelined in Chicago, Rondale Moore, rookie Michael Wilson and Zach Pascal would work in three-receiver sets, while tight end Trey McBride would be in for as many targets as he can handle.

Marquise Brown Not Seen On Wednesday

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) was not see on the practice field in the portion open to the media on Wednesday. Brown was forced to exit early for the second straight game due to a heel injury in the Week 15 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, putting his status firmly up in the air for this Sunday's tilt against the Chicago Bears on the road. The 26-year-old had the Week 14 bye to heal up, but it didn't appear to really help him all that much after he was hurt again this past Sunday. Fantasy managers should consider Hollywood extremely volatile if he actually suits up this weekend. Brown has left early his last two games and hasn't caught a pass since Week 12. If he doesn't play in Week 16, expect Rondale Moore, rookie Michael Wilson and Greg Dortch to serve in three-receiver sets for Arizona.

Marquise Brown Up In The Air For Week 16

Arizona Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon said that wide receiver Marquise Brown's (heel) status for the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears remains to be determined. However, potential bad weather in Chicago on Sunday won't play a factor in whether Brown suits up this weekend. The Cardinals are not in the playoff picture whatsoever, so there's no reason to rush the 26-year-old wideout back into the fold. Hollywood has been forced out early in each of the last two games and hasn't caught a pass since Week 12, so fantasy managers still playing for a title probably shouldn't plan on relying on his services in Week 16. If Brown doesn't play at all against the Bears, Rondale Moore, rookie Michael Wilson and Greg Dortch should operate in three-receiver sets, with tight end Trey McBride likely to lead the team in targets, catches and yards.

Marquise Brown Unlikely To Go On Injured Reserve

Arizona Cardinals head coach Jonathan Gannon said that as of now, wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) is unlikely to be placed on Injured Reserve. Gannon also said the team will know more about the status of tight end Geoff Swaim (calf) by Wednesday. Brown injured his heel in the Week 13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and then had the Week 14 bye to rest. However, he was still questionable for the Week 15 contest against the San Francisco 49ers. Hollywood suited up on Sunday but aggravated his heel injury, leaving his status for Week 16 against the Chicago Bears on Christmas Eve up in the air. Amidst his heel injury, the 26-year-old hasn't caught a pass since Week 12. Expect Brown to miss practice time this week, making him a pretty volatile fantasy asset during the semifinals in most leagues this week.

Marquise Brown Questionable To Return In Week 15

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) is questionable to return to Sunday's showdown with the 49ers. He was questionable heading into this one because of a heel issue, so there's a good chance he won't be back, especially with San Francisco's decisive lead in the fourth quarter. If Brown is officially ruled out, he'll finish without a target, with Trey McBride, Rondale Moore, and Greg Dortch the favorites to see a few extra looks from Kyler Murray.

Dec 17, 2023 6:41 PM EST


Marquise Brown, Michael Wilson Officially Active Sunday

Arizona Cardinals wide receivers Marquise Brown (heel) and Michael Wilson (neck) are active for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Both players had been listed as questionable but were trending in the right direction prior to kickoff. Brown has produced mixed results this season, catching just 51 of 101 targets for 574 yards and four touchdowns. Meanwhile, Wilson is making his return from a three-game absence. The promising rookie has 28 catches for 435 yards and a pair of touchdowns over the course of nine contests. While Brown and Wilson are solid players, a tough matchup against the 49ers does create some concern. Fantasy managers should view both as WR3/FLEX options this week

Marquise Brown, Michael Wilson Expected To Play Versus 49ers

Arizona Cardinals wide receivers Marquise Brown (heel) and Michael Wilson (neck) are expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15 despite being listed as questionable, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown has produced mixed results this season, ultimately catching just 51 of 101 targets for 574 yards and four touchdowns. When the 26-year-old last faced the Niners, he caught seven of 10 passes from Josh Dobbs for a total of 96 yards through the air. Meanwhile, Wilson is making his return from a three-game absence. The promising rookie has 28 catches for 435 yards and a pair of touchdowns over the course of nine contests. He had the best game of his young career earlier this season against San Francisco, catching all seven of his targets for 76 yards and two touchdowns. While both Brown and Wilson are solid players, a tough matchup against the 49ers does create some concern regardless of how well they performed during the first meeting earlier this season. Fantasy managers should view both as WR3/FLEX options this week.

Dec 17, 2023 8:12 AM EST


Marquise Brown Questionable For Week 15

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) is currently listed as questionable for the upcoming Week 15 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Brown sat out practice to open the week, but was able to get in two limited sessions after that. It sounds like he's trending in the right direction, but doesn't appear to be fully healthy yet. His fantasy value has taken a hit since Kyler Murray returned under center. Fantasy managers should consider Brown a low-end WR3, assuming he suits up this weekend.

Dec 15, 2023 6:31 PM EST


Marquise Brown Back At Cardinals Practice

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) was back at practice on Thursday after being a non-participant in Wednesday's session coming off the team's bye in Week 14. Brown was dealing with a heel injury the two previous weeks before the bye but was able to play, although he left the Week 13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers early and didn't catch a single pass on only three targets. The 26-year-old should have a good chance to suit up in Week 15 against the division-rival San Francisco 49ers, although he may not be 100 percent in a tough matchup. Brown hasn't exactly been great for fantasy managers since quarterback Kyler Murray returned in Week 10, either, so he'll be on the WR3/4 borderline against San Fran despite catching seven passes (10 targets) for a season-high 96 yards in the first meeting against the Niners back in Week 4.

Dec 14, 2023 1:56 PM EST


Marquise Brown Misses Practice Wednesday

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) did not practice on Wednesday. Brown's inability to practice coming off a Week 14 bye is a slight concern heading into a Week 15 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. That being said, Brown still has chances on Thursday and Friday to return to the practice field. If Brown doesn't end up playing, it would upgrade the prospects of Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch, and Michael Wilson (shoulder), assuming Wilson returns from a shoulder injury that has sidelined him the past few games.

Dec 13, 2023 9:22 PM EST


Marquise Brown Questionable To Return Versus Steelers

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) is officially questionable to return against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. At the time of his departure, Brown had commanded three targets but did not have a reception. Michael Wilson (shoulder) is also out, so the Cardinals will lean on Trey McBride, Rondale Moore, and Greg Dortch in the passing game until Brown can return.

Dec 3, 2023 3:41 PM EST


Marquise Brown Officially Active In Week 13

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) is officially active for the Week 13 game on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Meanwhile, fellow wideout Zach Pascal (personal) has been ruled out. Brown didn't practice all week but took a questionable tag into Sunday morning. The 26-year-old was expected to play, and fantasy managers will be hoping that he can build on a nice performance in last week's blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams, when he had six catches for 88 yards on 12 targets. Brown did very little in quarterback Kyler Murray's first two games back from Injured Reserve, but last week's performance gives hope that Brown will continue gaining chemistry with Murray in the final six regular season games of 2023.
