It is safe to say, the expectations are high for Kirk in his second season. He had a very good rookie season and now he is inserted into an offense that plans to throw more.
His 2018 season ended prematurely because of injury but he still managed to put up decent numbers for a rookie. He had 43 receptions for 590-yards and three touchdowns.
Two of his touchdowns were huge. He had a 75-yard touchdown reception to start off the game in San Francisco and then caught a late fourth quarter touchdown pass against the 49ers at home a couple of weeks later.
Kirk is going to continue to be a huge playmaker. We should all get used to hearing Kyler Murray to Christian Kirk.
While he will still be the number two receiver on the depth chart to start 2019, behind Larry Fitzgerald, it will seem like he is playing more like a number one. He will get plenty of opportunity to shine in 2019.
