2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
On pace to catch nearly 100 passes prior to his Week 4 injury, Christian Kirk's breakout season was unfortunately put on hold due to an ankle sprain that caused him to miss three full games. While he did get back on the field and produce some more fantasy-relevant weeks, Kirk would only score a touchdown in one game for the entire season. Of course, he scored three touchdowns on six catches for 138 yards in that Week 10 blowup performance against the Buccaneers, but Kirk wasn't much of a fantasy factor after that.

Now with the Cardinals bringing in superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, a case could be made that Kirk is no longer someone worth targeting in fantasy drafts. We have to assume that Hopkins will see a strong target share which leaves the other receivers in this offense to fight for scraps. Future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald will be back again in 2020 and he will likely again push Kirk for playing time.

Looking back to 2019, Kirk was on the field for over 75 percent of Arizona's total offensive snaps. He did that despite missing three games and perhaps more importantly, he actually out-snapped Fitzgerald in 10 of the 13 games they played together. With Fitzgerald primarily operating as the team's slot receiver, Kirk may have the inside track to be on the field with Hopkins in two-WR sets and that's a big reason why he's going ahead of the veteran in fantasy drafts.

Fortunately for Kirk, the team has no real TE of consequence, so that should give him a bit higher of a target floor than if he was competing in an offense with more proven pass catching weapons. Arizona's top-scoring TE in 2019 was Charles Clay, who is now a free agent, and he was targeted just 24 times on the season. Perceived starter Maxx Williams was targeted just 19 times in 2019 and neither player was on the field for even 50 percent of Arizona's snaps.

Kirk is well behind Hopkins in the pecking order, but don't forget about him in your fantasy drafts. He saw over 100 targets in 13 games and could exceed that number in 2020 even if he finished second on his own team in that category.

News From The Past 90 Days
Larry Fitzgerald returns positive COVID-19 test
Will miss Week 12
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 26, 10:30 pm

Arizona Cardinals
WR Larry Fitzgerald has tested positive for COVID-19, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. Fitzgerald will miss Sunday’s game against the #Patriots. (NFL Network - Mike Garafolo)

FFToday's Take: Fitzgerald is on the waiver wire in many leagues, but his absence technically opens the door for desperate redraft owners and DFS value-seekers to roll the dice on Andy Isabella. The positive diagnosis also enhances the possibility that another Arizona receiver - such as DeAndre Hopkins or Christian Kirk - may either test positive soon or be labeled as a close contact of Fitzgerald. If this week has been any indication, fantasy owners will need to spend significantly more time over the rest of the season checking for player updates than they have in the past.


Injury Lazard, Tonyan miss practice on Friday
Tonyan added to injury report on Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 13, 1:15 pm

Green Bay Packers
Christian Kirksey practiced again but Allen Lazard did not go. That's the first time Lazard hasn't worked since the three-week window to return off IR opened Oct. 28. TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) also didn't go. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Tonyan was added to the injury report yesterday with an ankle injury. The missed practice on Friday suggests he won't play this week but we'll get further clarification once the injury report comes out later today.


Injury DeAndre Hopkins, Kirk both expected to play
Provide there are no pre-game setbacks
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 3, 11:45 pm

New Orleans
Cardinals’ WRs DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) and Christian Kirk (ankle), both listed as questionable for Sunday, both are expected to play against the Panthers if there are no pre-game setbacks, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hopkins missed practice all week but rarely misses a game. It sounds like he'll be out there along with Kirk giving Kyler Murray all of his weapons.


Injury DeAndre Hopkins, Kirk will be a gametime decision
Missed practice on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 2, 3:22 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury said DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) will be a game-time decision whether he will play. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hopkins missed practice all week. "If he can go, he'll go, but we don't want to put him out there -- it's early in the year -- if he isn't feeling his best." That doesn't sound encouraging for Hopkins' chances to suit up in Week 4. Christian Kirk (groin) is a gametime decision as well. Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson could have an increased role against the Panthers this week.


Injury DeAndre Hopkins misses practice Thursday
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 1, 1:40 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Wideout DeAndre Hopkins continues to deal with an ankle issue that could possibly leave the Cardinals short-handed on Sunday when they play at the Carolina Panthers. Hopkins wasn’t on the field Thursday during the portion of practice open to the media, instead going inside the club’s training facility as workouts began. (Arizona Central)

FFToday's Take: On the plus side, Christian Kirk has been practicing this week and should play in Week 4. Missing Hopkins would certainly be a blow to the offense as Hopkins leads the league in receptions (32) and receiving yards (356). Larry Fitzgerald, Andy Isabella and Kirk could be the top three wideouts for Arizona this week.


Injury Christian Kirk out for Week 3
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 25, 3:15 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury says WR Christian Kirk will not play Sunday against the Lions. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kirk has been battling a groin injury and will miss Week 3 against the Lions. Andy Isabella should see increased opportunities but the only real receiving option in Arizona through the first two games has been DeAndre Hopkins.
