Is Marquise Brown playing Monday night? Fantasy injury update for the Cardinals-49ers Week 11 Monday Night Football


About a month ago, many feared that Marquise Brown’s season was over due to a foot injury. Heading into Week 11, the Cardinals wide receiver is set to make a comeback on Monday Night Football against the 49ers. Things are changing fast, and fantasy football owners have tough decisions to make if Brown plays. But first, they need to monitor the latest updates to make sure it’s active, and we’re here to help with that.

We will continue to update this article with news on Brown until the official active/inactive report is released Monday around 6:45 p.m. ET.

Is Marquise Brown playing Monday night week 11?

Brown has missed the last four games after suffering a broken foot. At the time of the injury, some reports suggested he would miss the rest of the season, but just over a month later, it looks like he is ready to return. Brown was tagged to return from the IR on Monday and practiced with the cardinals all week, so all signs point to him returning Monday night against the 49ers.

We have yet to see Brown in action with DeAndre Hopkins and Rondale Moore, so it’s hard to say how the targets will be split. Complicating matters further this week is the health of Kyler Murray (hamstring), which will be a game-time decision. Add to that potentially risky field conditions in Mexico City and a stingy 49ers pass defense, and you find it hard to take the risk with Brown.

He was a target monster at the start of the year (10.4 per game), but Hopkins is clearly the alpha now that he’s back. Moore has become a reliable target himself (24 catches, 31 targets over the past three weeks), so something has to give. It’s reasonable to think that Brown will take a step back, at least initially, given his situation.

We would still take the risk of starting Brown as long as he is active. He’s proven to be a solid possession receiver in the past, and we know he still has the ability to play big. He’ll be a big part of the Cardinals offense no matter who’s under center, and the advantage is always there for a big play or two. If you want to give him a week before trusting him again, we won’t blame you, but at the very least Brown should be active and given opportunities.
