Kirk returns for his sophomore season with the Cardinals. His rookie season ended early thanks to an injury on December 2nd at the Green Bay Packers.
He did manage 43 receptions but that number too is expected to climb. He didn’t show much in the preseason but that was likely by design. It was more about the rookie receivers in the preseason.
Kirk is still in place to take over the WR 1 spot for the Cardinals once Fitz retires, so it will be important to get into a groove with Kyler Murray.
Fantasy value: Much like Fitz’s although you might get laughed at or roasted if you draft him too high. With all of the weapons the Cardinals will have at their disposal, Kirk could have a good season but just not great fantasy numbers.
Still, might not be a bad idea to draft him in mid rounds. He’s definitely a guy that will play, so there is always the chance he will break out.
