Draft note
by John Paulsen
I normally shy away from free agent receivers who change teams unless they are getting a quarterback upgrade and/or an upgraded role. Kirk isn’t getting an upgrade at quarterback, but one could argue that his role is upgraded after signing a mega-deal with the Jaguars. Kirk finished as the WR24 last season (on a mere 6.1 targets per game) and is currently going off the board as the WR43. He had the No. 26 yards per route run (out of 110 eligible receivers) in 2021. If Trevor Lawrence can make a big jump from last year, then Kirk should easily outperform his ADP.

JAX WR Christian Kirk - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
Spend, spend, spend! As Profootballtalk.com put it, "Jacksonville continues to try to buy its way out of dysfunction..." The Jaguars started racking up their tab by agreeing to terms with Christian Kirk on a four-year contract worth up to $84 million. Based on that contract, Kirk will be asked to play a major role as the Jaguars try to build a better offense around quarterback Trevor Lawrence in head coach Doug Pederson's first season with the team. Kirk averaged 640 receiving yards over his first three years in the NFL before breaking through in 2021 with 982 yards on 77 catches. Not only were these career highs, but he averaged more yards per game than more proven teammates DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green. It made him a key part of an offense that finished 10th in the NFL in passing yards and 11th in total points. Arizona faded down the stretch after a hot start, finishing 11-6 before suffering a first-round loss to the Rams. Kirk was still a key part of the success as a consistent option who topped 50 receiving yards in 11 of 18 games, including the playoffs.

2022 Fantasy Downside
Kirk, who has yet to break the 1,000-yard mark as a pro, has never demonstrated the ability to serve as a true NFL WR1 -- and to handle the kind of coverage and attention that comes with it.

2022 Bottom Line
With a competent coaching staff, a talented-but-unproven QB and a WR1 paycheck, Kirk is a player who is positioned to outproduce your draft-day investment.
