Shark Bites

Cardinals WRs Marquise Brown (heel) and Greg Dortch (shoulder) missed their second straight practices on Thursday. They're both in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Bears, which would leave Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, and Zach Pascal as Arizona's likely top three WRs. TE Trey McBride is the only Arizona pass catcher that can be trusted in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

The Chiefs are signing WR Marquise Brown to a one-year deal worth "up to" $11 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. If you have to settle for a "prove it" deal, it's tough to imagine a much better place to do it. The Chiefs return TE Travis Kelce as the most likely top target. WR Rashee Rice seized a large role late in the season and appears likely to hit 2024 as at least the lead wideout -- maybe a challenger to Kelce. But last year's No. 3 in targets was WR Justin Watson, whose 53 checked in 49 behind Rice. Brown obviously gets a boost to his weekly upside by joining QB Patrick Mahomes. He might have a tough time finding consistent targets. But he should easily emerge as at least the clear No. 3 target. We'll see where Brown lands in ADP before judging how good a draft value he is. "Mahomes WRs" often get pushed up the board a little too much. If Brown can stay outside the top 36 in ADP, he'll be fine to target. Climbing high into WR3 range would start to add more risk. Check our best ball rankings to see where Brown lands post-signing.

The Cardinals are placing WR Marquise Brown (heel) on IR, knocking him out for the final two games of the season. It was a frustrating season for Brown, who dealt with inconsistent QB play for the first nine games of the season and then struggled connecting with QB Kyler Murray over his last few outings. Brown finishes his age-26 season with career lows in yards per game (41.0), catch rate (51%), yards per target (5.7), and yards per route (1.25). Brown is set to hit free agency in March. We'll see how his market develops and where he ultimately lands, but he's a nice buy-low in dynasty leagues right now. Brown finished top 30 among WRs in PPR points per game in both 2021 and 2022.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) did not practice on Wednesday. We're not expecting him to play vs. the Eagles this weekend but will keep you updated on his status. Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, and Greg Dortch operated as Arizona's top three WRs with Wilson out last week.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bears. He's been banged up for a while, so it wouldn't be surprising if Arizona just shuts him down the rest of the way. We'll see how WR Greg Dortch (shoulder) is listed on the final injury report later today. He didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday. The Cardinals could be down to WRs Michael Wilson, Rondale Moore, and Zach Pascal this weekend.

Cardinals WR Marquise Brown (heel) did not practice on Wednesday. He's been dealing with this heel injury for a few weeks now and aggravated it last week. We're projecting Brown to miss Sunday's game vs. the Bears.
