Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Marquise Brown was the WR21 in weekly fantasy scoring last season, setting career-highs in targets (146), receptions (91), and receiving yards (1,008). Brown will take up the alpha role in the Arizona offense to start the season with DeAndre Hopkins sidelined by a suspension. He should have no issues leading the team in targets until Hopkins returns, with A.J. Green, Rondale Moore, and Zach Ertz being his main competition. While his volume will take a hit when Hopkins returns, he can still manufacture ceiling weeks late into the season with his role as a field stretcher. Last season he finished eighth in deep targets. He'll enjoy the deep ball upgrade he has received with Kyler Murray. Last year Murray was third in deep-ball accuracy rating (per Playerprofiler).The last time we saw Michael Thomas, he limped to a WR41 finish in fantasy points per game. While this sounds horrendous, much of it is related to the fact he scored zero touchdowns in 2020, as his underlying metrics were still strong. Thomas ranked 24th in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets per PFF) and drew a 27.9% target share in his seven games played. Thomas's health is still up in the air at the time of writing this, with reports that he's still not 100%. With a better supporting receiving class around him now, the Saints could throw the ball more often this season. If Thomas can get back to full strength, he should still be a fulcrum for the New Orleans aerial attack as a target hog.

 5/15: Still has "a few hurdles" til he's back to full-strength. When he returns, he now faces more tgt competition w/ Olave & Landry added. Starting to feel "busty," but Winston could still force feed if MT Regains form. For now, in this upside-filled tier, I'm avoiding.
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Marquise Brown seems slated for a massive target share in the Arizona Cardinals' pass-heavy offense. Brown posted a top-12 target share last season (23%) with Baltimore. The speedy wideout also commanded a whopping 27% target share back in 2018 at Oklahoma - the last time he played with Murray. Christian Kirk was WR12 during the last four weeks without Hopkins in the lineup. The Cardinals paid a premium to acquire Brown, so fantasy managers should expect them to use him plenty. Brace yourself for Brown to skyrocket up 2022 best-ball rankings as a top-20 fantasy WR option.When Thomas was healthy in 2020 from Weeks 11-14, he commanded a 33% target share, earned a 90.5 PFF receiving grade and averaged an elite 2.86 yards per route run - a mark that bested his career average (2.45). With Thomas now readily available after Round 4, he's the quintessential middle-round WR that could make the massive leap back atop the fantasy leaderboards.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
The move to Arizona is positive with a more pass heavy offense but negative in that his target share should be lower. Still, with the Hopkins suspension, I actually moved him up slightly post-trade. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Brown figures to be the lead wide receiver early in the season with DeAndre Hopkins suspended 6 games and he is the receiver most likely to lead the team in fantasy points this year. He is a WR3 with upside.
