|While he never eclipsed 100 yards in a single game as a rookie, Christian Kirk's 49.2 yards per game put him at a pace that should give us optimism for a potential 2019 breakout. Unfortunately, he did break his foot which ended his season short, but that's a much easier injury to overcome than something like a torn ACL and much less recurring than something like an ongoing hamstring injury.
Kirk was able to produce quality numbers as a rookie in one of the league's worst offenses, on a team that threw the ball the fourth-fewest amount of times in 2018. With only veteran Larry Fitzgerald alongside him as a pass catcher who has actually produced something in the NFL, Kirk should have the inside edge to lead the team in targets. While the Kingsbury offense does spread the ball, Kirk should exceed 100 targets this season and in an offense that should be much improved from where it was a season ago.
He's a player with a relatively high floor given his average draft position, but with the potential to break out and become an every-week starter for your fantasy teams. Kirk will be highly sought after in drafts by savvy fantasy owners.

|Kliff Kingsbury said both G Justin Pugh (back) and WR Christian Kirk (ankle) will be game-day decisions whether or not to play for the @AZCardinals. (Darren Urban on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Kirk got in limited practices this week, so it's likely he will suit up, but we'll need to keep an eye on his status on Sunday. The Seahawks have given up the 14th most fantasy points to wide receivers.

|While the #AZCardinals won’t have RB David Johnson today, they should get WR Christian Kirk (ankle) back vs the #Saints, source said. He’s missed almost a month. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Kirk has missed the last three games with a sprained ankle. He'll be on the WR3 radar this week in a matchup against the Saints.

Johnson missed practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 25, 5:00 pm
|The Cardinals hope to have running back David Johnson (ankle) and wide receiver Christian Kirk (ankle). Johnson didn’t practice at all this week. Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury was not ruling out the possibility of having Johnson available.
“He’s a tough guy,” Kingsbury said. “We’re hopeful, but we’ll see how he feels on Sunday.” (AZCardinals.com)|
FFToday's Take: Kingsbury said Johnson could play despite not having practiced all week. If he sits Chase Edmonds would assume a workhorse role. The teams signed Alfred Morris and Zach Zenner earlier in the week. Kirk was limited in practice this week and seems like the better bet to see the field.
