The Doppler effect is how Hubble determined the universe is expanding. All of the galaxies around us are shifted red.



Cosmological redshift comes from general relativity, not the SR Doppler effect. Local motion does produce a shift on top of that, but that's not all redshift. Nearby galaxies are actually blue shifted.
