Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown is expected to play on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams despite being listed as questionable with an illness, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. 

This is great news for a Arizona offense that lacks weapons with James Conner landing on injured reserve due to a knee injury. 

Still, the Cardinals are underdogs in this game. Brown has been solid in 2023 – and he has a chance to build on that against a young Rams defense.

Best Marquise Brown prop bet for Week 6 vs. Rams 

Marquise Brown OVER 61.5 receiving yards

Brown has cleared this prop just one time this season, but he’s finished with exactly 61 receiving yards on two separate occasions as well. 

The deep threat could push this total with one big catch, and he’s been a target hog in this Arizona offense. 

With Conner out, I expect the Cardinals to lean on their passing game more, which means more looks for Brown and Zach Ertz.
