Cardinals receiver Christian Kirk will miss the rest of his rookie season due to a broken foot suffered in Arizona’s win Sunday over the Green Bay Packers, head coach Steve Wilks said on Monday. Kirk will be placed on the team’s injured reserve list.
Kirk will be fine for 2019 Wilks added. The team will now turn to Fitzgerald, Sherfield, Nelson and Williams, if he can return from an ankle injury. Kirk was leading the team in receiving yards before the injury.
ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 at Green Bay Packers
Christian Kirk had only 41 yards last week against the Chargers in a forgettable game for the Cardinals offense. However, he was targeted a team-high six times, catching four passes on the day. Kirk remains a playmaker with high upside in any given week. He just also has a low floor in a terrible offense. This week, Kirk has similar boom-bust potential against a reeling Packers team that is in desperate need of a win. In quick-strike formats with deep rosters, Kirk has some upside if the Cardinals need to throw all game, but he’s too risky to start in most leagues.
