Scouting report

ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Los Angeles Rams

Christian Kirk caught seven of 10 balls for 76 yards last week in a loss to the 49ers. Don’t get too excited. Kirk will have these explosions from time to time, but it was his first game with more than three receptions since mid-November. With Jalen Ramsey likely covering DeAndre Hopkins this week, there may be some additional targets headed Kirk’s way again this week, but it’s not exciting enough to warrant serious fantasy consideration in most leagues. He’s too boom-or-bust to count on in the championship week.

Update: With Kirk out, definitely get him out of your lineup. While we could see an increase in targets to KeeSean Johnson or Andy Isabella, DeAndre Hopkins remains the only Cardinals WR worth starting.

ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Christian Kirk had three catches for 14 yards last week against the Giants. He has struggled recently, with single-digit fantasy points in every game since November 8th against the Dolphins. After six touchdowns in his first seven games, he’s been held scoreless over his last five. Even in a nice matchup against the Eagles, it’s hard to trust Kirk outside of very deep leagues. He has some boom-or-bust potential as a deep-league WR3, but most fantasy owners should look for someone more consistent.

ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Los Angeles Rams

Christian Kirk had just three catches and 19 yards on six targets last week against the Patriots. The Cardinals’ offense stalled and they’ve now lost three of their last four games – their win coming off a Hail Mary touchdown to DeAndre Hopkins in the closing seconds against the Bills. Kirk has just 96 total yards over the past three games combined, concerning for fantasy owners looking to the playoffs.

Kirk has a little upside this week against a really good Rams defense that ranks number one in the league in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. While it’s definitely a difficult matchup, he may benefit from Jalen Ramsey playing mostly against DeAndre Hopkins, perhaps directing more targets towards Kirk. Still, it’s risky to trust him in a bad matchup after struggling the past three games. He’s been very touchdown-dependent all year, and if he can’t find the end zone against the Rams, he’s likely in for another single-digit fantasy day. Sit him.

ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at New England Patriots

Christian Kirk caught four of six balls thrown his way last week against Seattle, gaining 50 yards. It was his second straight week without a touchdown after scoring six in his previous four outings. Kirk has been very touchdown-dependent, with just one game over 100 yards this season. However, he remains a solid, big-play upside option in most weeks due to the prolific offense he’s a part of and his nose for the end zone.

This week, Kirk faces a Patriots defense that ranks 19th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Kirk has boom-or-bust potential based on his reliance on finding the end zone, but he’s been successful enough lately to warrant consideration in nice matchups. These aren’t 2019’s Patriots, so Kirk has solid WR3 value in lineups this week.

ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Seattle Seahawks

Christian Kirk had a quiet day against the Bills last week, catching four passes for just 27 yards. He was targeted six times though, and he’s averaging 5.8 targets per game this season. Kirk has been largely touchdown-dependent, with just one game over 100 yards, but he’s found the end zone six times in a prolific offense, so it’s possible the touchdowns will continue.

This week, Kirk faces a Seahawks defense that ranks dead last in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Kirk was held to just 37 yards against the Seahawks a few weeks ago, but also had two touchdowns and five receptions. Kirk has excellent potential in a nice matchup, but he’s not without risk. Consider him a WR3 option with upside.

ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Buffalo Bills

It might be time to stop completely doubting Christian Kirk, who has six touchdowns in his last five games, including 123 yards and a score on five receptions last week against the Dolphins. Kirk isn’t without risk, as he’s run hot-and-cold for much of the past season and a half, but his upside is significant as a playmaker on an offense that ranks sixth in the league in points per game.

Kirk faces a Bills defense that ranks ninth in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. While not a great matchup, Kirk has been so productive lately – particularly at finding the end zone- that it’s hard not to consider him a viable option in any week. Keep him active as a low-end WR2 option this week, despite the tough matchup.

ARI WR Christian Kirk - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Miami Dolphins

Christian Kirk has some of the strangest stat lines. Over his past two games, he’s combined for a modest seven catches and 123 yards, but he’s found the end zone four times! He’s had two touchdowns in each of two straight games, and has five touchdowns over his past four outings. That seems unsustainable, but the fact that he’s averaged 5.75 targets during that span is encouraging.

This week, Kirk faces a Dolphins defense that ranks 19th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Kirk has upside, but he remains a risky, boom-or-bust option. We have him ranked just inside our top-30 wide receivers this week, making him a low-end WR3 in most formats.
