Cardinals WR Chad Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. Williams’ 3.9 targets per game figure to be spread to Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk and Ricky Seals-Jones.

Cardinals WR Chad Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. J.J. Nelson figures to step in as Arizona’s #3 WR behind Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk but isn’t a fantasy option.

Cardinals HC Steve Wilks said Wednesday that WR Christian Kirk has "somewhat" played himself into the mix for the #2 WR job. That's not exactly a ringing endorsement. Kirk has caught 6 balls for 58 yards and a score through 2 preseason games, but he hasn't played many snaps with the 1st-team offense. The rookie has run most of his routes from the slot with the 2nd-team. Larry Fitzgerald is obviously locked in as Arizona's primary slot guy this year, so Kirk will need to start getting work on the outside if he's going to make a 2018 impact. He's not worth a pick in redraft leagues right now. Chad Williams and Brice Butler look like better bets to open the season as the Cardinals' #2 WR.

The Cardinals’ initial (“unofficial”) depth chart lists rookie WR Christian Kirk as a 3rd-teamer. Arizona lists Larry Fitzgerald and Brice Butler as starters, with J.J. Nelson and Chad Williams behind them. We’d bet on Kirk climbing from there, but it’s at least a reminder that he has work to do.

The Cardinals selected Grambling WR Chad Williams in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. To be perfectly honest, this guy was not on our pre-draft radar. Here’s what we just learned about him: Williams goes 6’1, 207 pounds and ran a 4.4-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. (He wasn’t invited to the Combine.) He went over 1,000 yards in each of his final 2 seasons, highlighted by a big 90-1,337-11 line this past year. Williams also has off-field issues, though, getting arrested last May for firearm and marijuana possession. He could learn a lot from Larry Fitzgerald in Arizona and could eventually replace the future Hall-of-Famer.
