  Cardinals | Christian Kirk in a good spot    Fri Jun 28, 11:31 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk seems primed to flourish and knows the offense, in the opinion of beat writer Darren Urban.

Footballguys view: Kirk could be a 100-catch player easily and quickly develop into Kyler Murray's go-to target in an offense that will keep defenses off balance. He should be a mid-round upside target in PPR leagues.

  Cardinals | Christian Kirk a quick study    Sun Jun 16, 01:10 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk is displaying a 'good feel' for the offense under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Footballguys view: Kirk has the highest ceiling of any receiver in what should be an explosive Cardinals offense. He has a chance to catch 100+ passes and become Kyler Murray's favorite in short order. Kirk should be on your short list of mid-round wide receiver targets.

  Cardinals | Christian Kirk picking up offense    Fri Jun 14, 09:33 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk has shown a 'good feel' for the offense, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Footballguys view: Kirk should be able to thrive in the 'Air Raid' offense that Kingsbury is bringing to Arizona. The shorter passes can turn into long gains with Kirk's quickness and speed. His current ADP is WR35 (8.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cardinals | New role for Christian Kirk?    Fri May 3, 11:29 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk could be used as 'a bubble screen guy where you get it in his hands' in the mold of Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen, according to one NFL executive.

Footballguys view: Kirk broke his foot last December but has had no setbacks in his recovery. We're excited to see Kliff Kingsbury's 'Air Raid' system and how Kirk fits in. As a rookie in 2018, Kirk snared 43 catches for 690 yards and three receiving touchdowns. This season, Kirk is going off the board at WR65 (14.11) in 12-team PPR leagues. If he's a 'bubble screen guy' in that offense, Kirk could outperform that average draft position.

  Cardinals | More usage for Arizona WRs?    Sat Sep 15, 07:30 PM

Arizona Cardinals WRs Christian Kirk and Chad Williams anticipate seeing more targets in Week 2 after combining for just five said targets last week. Head coach Steve Willks said the Cardinals need to spread it around more in the passing game.

Footballguys view: Neither of these players are worth a roster spot until the Cardinals offense gets it together, but if they are making more of an impact, it will help David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald meet expectations.

  Cardinals | Christian Kirk makes presence felt    Sat Aug 18, 12:19 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught four passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in a 20-15 preseason win over the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Kirk is a super quick rookie wide receiver from Texas A&M. He's got some shades of Cooper Kupp (Rams) to his game, but at this point we don't know how much playing time or targets the rookie is in line for this year. We love Kirk's dynasty value but in re-draft leagues, Kirk may not make much of an impact as the Cardinals third or fourth receiver on the depth chart.
