Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown is playing his fourth season in the NFL. The Cardinals will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, December 25, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ.
The Cardinals suffered a 24-15 loss against the Denver Broncos last week and are currently placed third in the NFC West with a 4-10 record. Cardinals starting WR Marquise Brown played his ninth game of the season last week.
Brown was healthy coming out of the Week 15 game, but was listed as questionable after Wednesday’s practice session. He sustained a groin injury most likely during the team’s practice session on Wednesday. He was limited to the next two days and heads into the weekend listed as questionable. Brown may play against the Buccaneers, however, he will likely see a reduced snap count.
Cardinals starting quarterback Kyler Murray is on injured reserve and his backup QB Colt McCoy has been ruled out of the Week 16 game. Trace McSorley, a third-string quarterback, will be the starting quarterback in Week 16.
If you play fantasy football, you might not want to depend on a quarterback who hasn’t started in any games this season. If you can’t depend on Trace McSorley, you should also not expect much from Brown in Week 16.
This week, you should bench Marquise Brown and utilize one of your backup wide receivers.
