2019 Fantasy Outlook
A broken foot ended his season after 12 games, but Kirk was surprisingly efficient - 13.7 YPC and 8.7 YPT as a rookie - while playing in one of the league's worst offenses. At 5-11, 200, Kirk has just average size and decent speed (4.47 40). He's quick enough to operate in the slot - in fact he returned punts both last year and in college - and is dangerous in open space. The problem for Kirk is that the Cardinals not only picked up Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million base salary, but also drafted Andy Isabella in the second round and Hakeem Butler in the fourth. At press time, the pecking order among the four isn't entirely clear, but new coach Kliff Kingsbury should direct an up-tempo offense with plenty of passing, and rookie quarterback Kyler Murray has the skills to make it exciting. Kirk will have to start from scratch in a new system along with the rookies, but he got over his broken foot this past winter and is expected to be ready for training camp. Read Past Outlooks

Snaps touchdown drought in loss
WRArizona Cardinals
November 10, 2019
Kirk secured six of 10 targets for 138 yards and three touchdowns in the Cardinals' 30-27 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Kirk put a touchdown drought that dated back to Week 11 of last season to rest in spectacular fashion, scoring from 33, 69 and 15 yards out in the second, third and fourth quarters, respectively. The final touchdown gave the Cardinals a 27-23 lead midway through the fourth quarter, but Jameis Winston ultimately would lead a six-play, 92-yard game-winning drive for the Buccaneers. Kirk's receiving yardage total also was a career high and served as the second 100-yard game of his career overall. He's curiously alternated single- and double-digit targets across his seven games this year, so he'll look to garner double-digit looks in back-to-back contests for the first time in 2019 when he faces the 49ers in Week 11.

NFL Reactions: Week 10

A late Kyler Murray interception undid the work of a three-touchdown connection with Christian Kirk, but the Arizona passing game appears to be on its way to an impressive product.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 47th overall pick, Kirk couldn't have landed in a much better spot. Playing opposite 35-year old Larry Fitzgerald, Kirk could be the team's No. 2 WR out of the gate. J.J. Nelson is too slight to be more than an occasional field-stretcher, and Brice Butler is a 28-year old journeyman who's never had a significant role. At 5-11, 200, Kirk has average size and good speed (4.47 40). He can operate out of the slot or outside, and he's dangerous in space - he was an elite punt returner in college. Sam Bradford is competent enough as a quarterback, until 10th overall pick Josh Rosen takes over - either way, the passing game in Arizona should be better than last year. Kirk had charges of disorderly conduct and property damage, stemming from a February incident, dismissed by the Scottsdale City Court in May, so while he's not in any legal jeopardy, he has less margin for errant behavior than the rest of his rookie class.
