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 last year. He added 16 passed defended to land among the fantasy game's top 25 corners overall. The surprise statistic for him last season was his zero in the interception column. While this is troubling for fantasy owners, we should consider Kirkpatrick had 6 picks and a pair of scores at the team's nickel corner over the two previous seasons. Chances are he will steal a few balls in 2016 and likely become a top twenty fantasy option at the position. (May 27)
