Receivers (6)

DeAndre Hopkins, Marquise Brown, Rondale Moore, A.J. Green, Antoine Wesley, Andy Isabella

Hopkins will start the season on a six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s PED policy. But with Marquise Brown coming into the lineup, this shouldn’t be as painful as it otherwise would. Brown is an upgrade over the departed Christian Kirk, and he served as the WR1 for the Baltimore Ravens, logging 91 receptions in 2021.

Green played well enough last season to return to the desert. He will be the WR2 in the opening weeks before reverting into the slot along with Moore, who had a solid but unspectacular rookie season.

Keep an eye on Wesley. He played in 15 games last season and logged four starts, catching 19 passes for 208 yards and three touchdowns. The Cardinals gave Isabella permission to seek a trade, but he is the best of the bottom-tier receivers on the team. The former UMass product has speed and he could contribute if given the chance.
