Cardinals are not optimistic that WR Larry Fitzgerald, listed as questionable with a groin injury, will be able to play vs the Rams, per source. With Christian Kirk out, Fitzgerald could try to surprise Arizona. But the team was not counting on having him available.
ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 vs. Minnesota Vikings
Christian Kirk had five catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns in a lopsided victory over the Titans last week. He clearly outplayed A.J. Green, despite Green out-snapping him 55 to 39. Kirk is prone to these explosions from time to time, but he usually comes crashing down to earth shortly after.
The Vikings really struggled in the secondary last year, and they gave up touchdowns to Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase in Week 1, so the upside is there for Kirk to produce in this matchup. Still, it’s risky to trust him as he’s been so inconsistent throughout his career. We have him ranked outside our top-50 this week, so he should remain on the bench.
