Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) is expected to play vs. the Steelers today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Brown is listed as questionable and didn't practice all week. But he did play through this heel injury last week, posting a 6-88-0 line on 12 targets. See where Brown sits in the Week 13 WR Rankings.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) missed practice all week and is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Steelers. He played through this injury last week, and HC Jonathan Gannon said Friday that Brown is “trending in the right direction” to play in Pittsburgh. We’ll get Arizona’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) is out again for the Cardinals.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) did not practice on Wednesday. He played his usual role through this injury last week and should be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. But we'll keep an eye on Brown over the next few days.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown racked up 88 yards in a Week 12 loss to the Rams. Brown led the way with 12 targets on a day that found Kyler Murray attempt 45 passes in a blowout loss. Call it a nice turn of events for Brown, who entered the weekend questionable with a heel injury. In the post-game, Brown suggested he almost didn’t suit up. "We got into like a throwing match at the end, so I don't really look at it like we had a good connection because we lost the game," he said. "It took a lot for me to even play in this game, so for us to not come out of this game with a win, it hurts." Arizona travels to Pittsburgh for a fine matchup in Week 13. Then, they’ll be one of two teams on bye in Week 14.

Congratulations to all the fantasy managers out there who waited patiently for the breakout game from Chiefs WR Rashee Rice. The rookie hauled in 8 of his team-high 10 targets in Week 12 vs. the Raiders for 109 receiving yards and a TD. What’s exciting here is that his 71% route participation rate and 31.3% target share from this contest are Rice’s highest marks this season. Some of this bump in usage can be attributed to the fact that his teammate Mecole Hardman landed on IR with a thumb injury, and Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) was inactive on Sunday, but that shouldn’t discount the fact that Rice stepped up to the plate for a Chiefs’ offense that’d been struggling of late. It’ll be intriguing to see if the Chiefs will maintain his usage next week in a decent matchup vs. the Packers (24th in pass defense DVOA in 2023). At the very least, Rice will be worth keeping on the flex monitor in lineups.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice and then sidelined on Thursday and Friday, so it’s safe to assume that he won’t be at 100% for this one. That leaves Brown as a risky WR3 play in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) is expected to play vs. the Rams today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown was limited in Wednesday's practice and then sidelined on Thursday and Friday. It's safe to assume that Brown will not be at 100% today, leaving him as a shaky WR3 in fantasy lineups.

Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney (ankle, hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. With WR Mecole Hardman (thumb) on IR, the Chiefs are down to five WRs: Rashee Rice, Justin Watson, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore, and Richie James. Rice remains the top fantasy option here but still ran a route on just 52% of pass plays coming off the bye last week. Watson led the way with a 66% route rate and 11 targets in that loss to the Eagles but would still be tough to trust in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

The Chiefs placed WR Mecole Hardman (thumb) on IR, knocking him out for at least the next four games. He can be dropped from all redraft rosters. Hardman has totaled 10 targets in four games since re-joining the Chiefs, so his absence leaves just a little extra work behind for TE Travis Kelce and Kansas City's mess of other WRs.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (thumb) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. He's totaled 10 targets in four games since re-joining the Chiefs, so there's minimal fantasy impact here.

Chiefs RB Jerick McKinnon (groin) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. McKinnon has played on most obvious passing downs throughout the season, averaging 2.6 targets per game. We'll see whether RB Isiah Pacheco or RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire picks up that work with McKinnon out this weekend. His absence certainly doesn't hurt Pacheco's fantasy outlook.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Rams. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice and then sidelined on Thursday and Friday. Brown is seemingly in real danger of missing this one – and probably won’t be close to 100% if he does play. We’ll look for further updates on Brown’s status but won’t get Arizona’s inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET on Sunday. With WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) already ruled out, the Cardinals could be down to Greg Dortch and Rondale Moore as their top two WRs.

After being limited on Wednesday, Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) did not practice on Thursday. It looks like he hurt his heel on Wednesday and is now in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Rams. Check back tomorrow for another update on Brown. WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) remained sidelined on Thursday, so the Cardinals could be down to Greg Dortch and Rondale Moore as their top two WRs on Sunday.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught 7 of 9 targets for 44 yards and a TD in Week 11 vs. the Eagles. The veteran did lose a fumble in the contest, which cost fantasy managers just a little bit, but his 15.4 points were enough for Kelce to finish as the TE2 in PPR scoring on the week. Even so, it’s troubling to consider how much he’s started to dip in production of late. Kelce is averaging just 5.3 catches, 38.7 receiving yards, and 10.5 PPR points per game over the past three games. This information shouldn’t dissuade you from continuing to trust him as a TE1 every week. We are talking about Travis Kelce after all. It’s just something to be mindful of in the coming weeks.

Week 11 saw the struggles of Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes continue. The reigning NFL MVP completed 24 of 42 passes for 177 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT vs. the Eagles on Monday night. He was able to supplement some fantasy value with his legs (38 rushing yards), though the rainy conditions in Kansas City and the lack of support from his teammates really let him down. The Chiefs’ offense now leads the NFL in drops (23) and has failed to score a TD in the second half of a game for three games in a row. In that span, Mahomes is averaging just 200.7 passing yards per game with a 74.2 passer rating, well below his career average of 100.1. His path doesn’t get any easier down the stretch either. The Chiefs’ remaining schedule ranks as the fifth-toughest for QBs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Mahomes' prolific talent and track record of success will keep him ranked as a QB1 weekly, though there is reason for fantasy managers to be at least slightly concerned about him.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown caught just two balls for 18 yards in the Week 11 loss to the Texans. He got a couple of steps on a defender for a potential 75-yard TD in the second quarter but was badly underthrown by QB Kyler Murray. Brown got two other deep targets, but one was stopped by an illegal contact penalty and the other was thrown out of bounds. Brown is running cold on those deep looks right now. But it was concerning to see him draw just five targets for a 17% share in this one. That followed a four-target (13% share) Week 10. He's not getting enough volume from Murray to be considered more than a WR3 right now.

The Rams are signing Carson Wentz. What's this mean for the QB situation? It likely means that the team saw enough of Brett Rypien in Sunday's ugly loss to the Packers. The Rams waited until Sunday to officially rule QB Matthews Stafford out, so we can only assume his injured right thumb will be ready for game action after the Week 10 bye. That would leave Wentz as ostensibly the new backup. Frankly, we're wondering why some other team with a shaky QB situation didn't take this shot earlier. Wentz can be stashed in deeper superflex leagues, just in case there's any setback with Stafford's thumb.

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco handled 16 of 18 team rush attempts for 66 scoreless yards in Week 9. The Chiefs’ offense struggled in this one. They ran only 56 plays at 4.8 yards per pop, as no Chiefs RB saw a goal line attempt. Still, Pacheco enters a Week 10 bye with 13+ carries in six of his past seven outings. The Eagles await on the other side. But after that tough matchup, Pacheco’s schedule looks ultra-favorable.

Chiefs WR Rashee Rice scored his fourth TD of the season in Sunday’s win over Miami. The rookie saw only 2 targets – a 6% share – but found the end zone on a first quarter screen pass. Entering Sunday, he had recorded 4+ catches in four straight. He'll remain a WR3/FLEX option (vs. Philly) after a Week 10 bye.

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) will not travel with the team to Germany and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. CEH has averaged only 2.2 carries and 0.6 targets over the last five games, so his absence leaves just a few touches behind for RBs Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon.
