Summary

Cincinnati has established a pattern of drafting quality corners in the first round then having them work as backups for a while before breaking the starting lineup. This was the case with Kirkpatrick who was the seventeenth overall pick in 2012. He broke into the starting lineup in 2015 and had an immediate impact both on the field and in the box scores. Kirkpatrick's 64 solo tackles tied him for second most among corners that season. He added 16 passed defended to land among the fantasy game's top 25 corners overall. As is often the case with talented corners, Kirkpatrick saw hit totals slump as a second year starter in 2016. While he added three interceptions Kirkpatrick's 35 tackles, 11 assists and 10 passes defended were below the realm of usefulness for most fantasy owners. His numbers should bounce back a little in 2017 and we can optimistically expect a few more big plays, but counting on him as a starting corner might be a mistake. (May 24)
