|In three seasons with the Ravens, Brown averaged 65 receptions, 787 yards, and 7 touchdowns, with his catches and yardage going up each year, culminating in last year's 91-1,008-6 performance. Despite working as their No. 1 receiver, Baltimore was willing to flip Brown, who still has two years remaining on his rookie deal, for a first-round pick on draft night. He'll step into the WR1 role in Arizona while Hopkins is suspended, and then we'll see how things shake out between the tandem.
One thing working in Brown's favor is that he and Murray were teammates at Oklahoma, so they won't be starting from scratch in terms of familiarity. Having those six games without the incumbent WR1 around should also help facilitate any learning curve Brown might face transitioning into Kliff Kingsbury's offense. Brown feels well suited as a high-end WR3, but if he gets off to a great start don't hesitate to sell high if you can acquire someone more bulletproof in return.

Hopkins has withdrawn his appeal

|#AZCardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins withdrew his appeal, source said. So, now official:

FFToday's Take: This lengthy suspension will put a damper on Hopkins' fantasy value this season. Newly acquired Marquise Brown, A.J. Green and Rondale Moore should open the season as starters for Kyler Murray. Hopkins battled hamstring and knee issues last season which limited him to ten games. He did score 8TDs however and will likely be considered a middle-round target in redraft leagues this summer.

|@AZCardinals acquire WR Marquise Brown in trade with Ravens for first-round pick. Also get a third-round pick from Baltimore.

FFToday's Take: The Cardinals lost Christian Kirk in free agency (JAX) and recently re-signed veteran A.J. Green to go along with DeAndre Hopkins. Brown will give the team some youth at the position while the Ravens are now thin at the position.
