Christian Kirk Fantasy Football News 2018

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and property damage after the Phoenix Open golf tournament on February 3. That, of course, was nearly 3 months before the NFL Draft. “We spoke with Christian about it at length and also looked into it independently," a Cardinals spokesperson said. "Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future but while it remains an active legal matter, we won’t comment further.” Kirk was allegedly drunk leaving the tournament and seen breaking a car window with a rock. We'll see what comes of this, but the incident didn't stop the Cards from spending a 2nd-round pick on Kirk. He has a shot to step right in as the team's #2 WR this season and is worth a look in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

The Cardinals selected Texas A&M WR Christian Kirk with the 47th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Kirk’s most impressive college season came back in 2015. As an 18-year-old true freshman, he led the Aggies with 80 catches, 1,009 receiving yards and 7 TDs. His yardage totals tailed off over the past 2 years, but he still totaled 149 catches and 19 scores. Kirk was also a special-teams dynamo, scoring 1 kick-return and 6 punt-return TDs. A 5’10, 201-pounder who ran the majority of his routes at A&M from the slot, Kirk has shades of Golden Tate in his game. He averaged 6.8 yards after the catch during his college career, according to Pro Football Focus. Arizona is a strange short-term fit with slot maven Larry Fitzgerald still around. We’ll see how Kirk fits in this season. Long term, he should be the Fitz replacement.
