Player Outlook
Kirk signed a monster deal in the offseason to become the No. 1 wide receiver for Jacksonville. He's best drafted as a borderline No. 3 wide receiver starting in Round 8. Kirk will be searching for his first 1,000-yard season and he'll need Trevor Lawrence to make a major leap to get there. Marvin Jones led this team with 832 yards in 2021. If Lawrence develops, and Doug Pederson has modified his offense to include more wide receiver targets, then Kirk does have starter upside. But it's best to draft him as a reserve and see how things shake out in Jacksonville first.

Fantasy News

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Taking seat Friday

    Kirk (ankle) isn't expected to play in Friday's preseason game against the Browns, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports. After not suiting up for the Hall of Fame Game, Kirk was spotted working on the side at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle issue, which will keep him in street clothes for the Jaguars' second exhibition. He'll have two more chances to get some work with quarterback Trevor Lawrence before the regular season, the first of them Saturday, Aug. 20 versus the Steelers. Along with Kirk, Laviska Shenault (hamstring) and Jamal Agnew won't be available Friday, leaving Marvin Jones, Zay Jones and Laquon Treadwell, among others, as the team's active wide receivers.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Dealing with minor ankle injury

    Kirk is working off to the side at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports. The injury, while seemingly minor, will probably be reason enough to hold Kirk out of Friday's preseason game against Cleveland. The Jaguars are expected to play their other starters, and they're already a bit thin at wide receiver with depth options Laviska Shenault (ankle) and Jamal Agnew (hip) ruled out for Friday's game. Kirk, Marvin Jones and Zay Jones have been getting most of the first-team reps at training camp, with Kirk taking many snaps from the slot.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Not in line to play Thursday

    Kirk won't play in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game against the Raiders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The same applies to fellow wideouts Marvin Jones, Zay Jones and Laviska Shenault, a context that will give a handful of players looking to secure depth roles in the team's passing offense an opportunity to log snaps in Thursday's preseason opener.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Set to join Jaguars

    Kirk and the Jaguars agreed Monday to a four-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Per Albert Breer of SI.com, Kirk's deal is worth up to $84 million in total, with $72 million in base salary and $3 million in performance-based incentives available for each year of the contract. Regardless of the exact structure of the pact, it's clear that the Jaguars prioritized adding a pass catcher like Kirk in free agency with an eye toward bolstering the supporting cast of second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Kirk, who turned 25 this past November, is coming off a 2021 campaign in which he led the Cardinals in receiving yards (982), catches (77) and targets (103) while adding five touchdowns in 17 games.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: New target for Lawrence

    Kirk is slated to sign with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Jacksonville continues to make splashes in the free-agent market, but Kirk marks the first addition to the skill-position ranks. He'll join Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault as the top wide receiver options for second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence in 2022. Kirk is coming off his most productive season overall as a pro last year, hauling in 77 of 103 targets for 982 yards and five touchdowns in 17 games with the Cardinals.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Leads team in catches

    Kirk caught six of 10 targets for 51 yards in Monday night's 34-11 wild-card round loss to the Rams. Kirk led the Cardinals in all major receiving categories, going for a team-long gain of 23 yards as well. Despite Arizona ending its season on a sour note, Kirk overall enjoyed his best campaign as a pro. The wideout caught 77 of 103 targets for 982 yards and five touchdowns while not missing any games for the first time in his four-year career. On the back of that production, the 25-year-old is slated to enter free agency this offseason with his value on the rise, making it uncertain whether the Cardinals will be able to bring him back or not.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Leading receiver against Dallas

    Kirk caught six of nine targets for 79 yards in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Cowboys. Kyler Murray did a good job spreading the ball around, as Kirk led the Cards in receiving yards but Zach Ertz led in receptions with seven, while Antoine Wesley was on the end of both of Murray's TD passes. Kirk has a 25-307-1 line on 36 targets over the last four games as the team's de facto No. 1 wideout, giving him plenty of momentum heading into a Week 18 clash with the Seahawks.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Garners nine targets in Week 16

    Kirk caught seven of nine passes for 48 yards during Saturday's 22-16 defeat to the Colts. With DeAndre Hopkins (knee) beginning a lengthy absence following Week 14, Kirk has benefitted on the target front, seeing his biggest counts in the category of the campaign over the last two contests. Overall, Kirk put up a 16-142-1 line on 21 targets in that span, while tight end Zach Ertz managed 14-145-0 on 24 targets. The pair appears to be Kyler Murray's top options at the moment, so Kirk again should be poised for significant volume in the Cardinals' next game Sunday, Jan. 2 in Dallas.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Top receiver with Hopkins out

    Kirk caught nine of 12 targets for 94 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-12 loss to the Lions. Kirk stepped into the No. 1 wide receiver role in DeAndre Hopkins' (knee) absence, setting new season highs in catches and targets, but the rest of the Cardinals struggled as the team suffered a shocking loss to a Lions team that came into the game with a 1-11-1 record. His 26-yard touchdown with just 4:40 left in the game was too little too late, but it raised Kirk's season total to five heading into a Week 16 visit from the vulnerable Colts pass defense.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Three grabs in loss

    Kirk caught three of six targets for 86 yards in Monday night's 30-23 loss to the Rams. Kirk's performance was fueled by a long catch in each half. In the second quarter, he hauled in a 41-yard dime from Kyler Murray, then Kirk was the recipient of a 47-yarder in the fourth. Those big plays enabled the wideout to accumulate his third-most receiving yards in a game this season, helping Kirk rebound after posting merely one catch for four yards in Week 13.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Another paltry showing

    Kirk caught one of three targets for a season-low four yards during Sunday's 33-22 win at Chicago. With Kyler Murray only attempting 15 passes in his first game action since Week 8, there wasn't much volume to go around for Cardinals receivers Sunday. Kirk actually paced the team in targets, and eight different players recorded one or two receptions, but only DeAndre Hopkins and James Conner were able to take advantage with TDs. Looking ahead to Week 14, Kirk will attempt to bounce back against a Rams defense that also contained him to one catch back in Week 4.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Musters two catches Sunday

    Kirk corralled two of five targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 23-13 win at Seattle. With DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) again sidelined, Kirk joined A.J. Green and Rondale Moore as the top wide receivers available for the Cardinals. Colt McCoy was also under center for a third straight game with Kyler Murray (ankle) out. The lack of production was notable after Kirk combined for a 13-149-0 line on 14 targets between Weeks 9 and 10, but each member of this receiving corps has had its highs and lows this season. Arizona has a Week 12 bye, so the offense as a whole could be back to normal by the time it takes the field again Sunday, Dec. 5 at Chicago.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Makes seven grabs

    Kirk caught seven of eight targets for 58 yards in Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Panthers. Kirk led Arizona in all major receiving categories with top wideout DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) sidelined. However, with star quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) also out again, the Cardinals struggled mightily passing the ball, with signal-callers Colt McCoy and Chris Streveler managing just 143 yards combined. While Kirk has been productive within a short-handed offense lately, he'll hope Murray can return to the lineup in Week 11 versus the 49ers.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Four grabs in loss

    Kirk secured four of six targets for 46 yards in the Cardinals' 24-21 loss to the Packers on Thursday night. Kirk checked in tied for second in receptions and also was the runner-up in targets on the night for the Cardinals in the disappointing upset loss. The fourth-year wideout has no fewer than four grabs in four consecutive contests, as he's continued to find moderate success while often facing third cornerbacks in his new role as a No. 3 wideout behind DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green. Kirk will look to continue producing in his steady complementary role during a Week 9 road matchup against the 49ers.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Finds end zone again

    Kirk caught four of five targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-5 win over the Texans. The fourth-year receiver remains on pace for a career year despite the embarrassment of riches on the Arizona roster available for Kyler Murray to throw to. The 24-year-old is taking aim at 70 catches, 1,000 yards and 10 TDs, numbers he's never reached before, and even with Zach Ertz slotting in for Maxx Williams (knee) alongside DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green, Kirk should continue to make an impact for the Cardinals. He'll look to find the end zone for the third game in a row in Week 8 against the Packers.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Scores TD in Sunday's win

    Kirk caught five of eight targets for 75 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-14 win over the Browns. He led the Cards in targets while tying A.J. Green for the team lead in catches, and Kirk hauled in his third TD of the season to open the scoring midway through the first quarter. The fourth-year receiver is well on his way to a career year in Arizona's explosive offense, but Kirk may not be called on often in Week 7 at home against a struggling Texans squad.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Notches 50 yards from scrimmage

    Kirk recorded five catches (on five targets) for 39 yards and one 11-yard carry during Sunday's 17-10 win versus the 49ers. Through five games, Kirk has caught 91.3 percent of his targets (21 of 23), and his yards per target (12.3) easily marks a career high to date. The primary drawback (from a fantasy perspective) in Arizona has been Kyler Murray's propensity to spread the ball around, as five different skill-position players have at least 23 targets, with all of DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green, Chase Edmonds and Rondale Moore in front of Kirk. Clearly, Kirk's efficiency will help him have more fruitful outings than not, and he'll have a good chance to produce next Sunday in what may be a back-and-forth road battle with the Browns.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Receives just one target Sunday

    Kirk gathered in his only target for five yards during Sunday's 37-20 road win versus the Rams. After opening the season with at least 65 yards receiving in each of Arizona's first three games, Kirk barely made an impact Week 4, despite getting a season-high 72-percent share of the offensive snaps. Kyler Murray has been keeping all of the team's key skill players involved, with Kirk (18 targets) one of six with at least 16. Kirk is just four yards shy of A.J. Green's 248 through the air for the team lead, and he's also one of three Cards with multiple TD catches. With another divisional battle looming against the 49ers on Sunday, Kirk will aim to bounce back.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Eclipses century mark in win

    Kirk secured seven of eight targets for 104 yards in the Cardinals' 31-19 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. Kirk extended what has been a strong stretch of play to open the campaign with Sunday's effort, which featured a season high in receptions, receiving yardage and targets. He's looked like a steadier performer, albeit over a modest sample, thus far this season now that he's no longer a starter and likely facing a lower quality of cornerback on many of his routes. Kirk will look to put together a successful encore to his Week 3 performance in a tough Week 4 road battle against the Rams.

  • Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Hauls in three passes Sunday

    Kirk notched three receptions (on four targets) for 65 yards during Sunday's 34-33 win versus the Vikings. Among the six Cardinals to be targeted by Kyler Murray in Week 2, Kirk matched No. 1 wideout DeAndre Hopkins with the fewest looks. Having said that, all three of Kirk's catches went for at least 10 yards, highlighted by a 35-yard looping pass from Murray down the middle of the field that set up Arizona at the six-yard line late in the fourth quarter, which ultimately set up a 27-yard field goal for the winning points. After two games, Kirk has accrued an 8-135-2 receiving line on nine targets, which indicates his efficiency in what has been a hyper-efficient passing attack under Murray. Kirk will look to keep it up next Sunday when the Cards pay a visit to Jacksonville.
