Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He averaged 9.25 targets over the first 4 games of the season and should return to a big role in Arizona’s passing game. Kirk is at least a WR3 for Week 8. Rookie WR KeeSean Johnson is a healthy scratch today.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. Larry Fitzgerald and KeeSean Johnson served as Arizona’s clear top 2 WRs with Kirk out last week, while Trent Sherfield, Pharoh Cooper and Damiere Byrd mixed in.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) isn't expected to play against the Giants today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Kirk has put in limited practices the past 2 weeks, but the team isn't bringing him back until he's at 100%. Rookie KeeSean Johnson figures to serve as Arizona's #2 WR again today.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is not expected to play against the Falcons today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kirk was limited in practice all week and has a good shot to return for Week 7. We'll see if WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is able to play today, but WR KeeSean Johnson will be the best target bet among Arizona wideouts not named Larry Fitzgerald.

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is listed as questionable but didn’t practice all week and seems like a long shot to play. That’ll leave WRs KeeSean Johnson, Trent Sherfield, Andy Isabella and Pharoh Cooper behind Larry Fitzgerald in the pecking order. Fitz is the only guy we can trust in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury considers WR Christian Kirk (ankle) "unlikely" to play against the Bengals this weekend. Kingsbury did add that Kirk will be limited in practice this week and that the ankle injury isn't as serious as the team initially feared. WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is also not expected to play on Sunday, per Kingsbury, leaving Arizona down to WRs Larry Fitzgerald, KeeSean Johnson, Trent Sherfield and Andy Isabella.

Cardinals WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks. He played 92% of Arizona’s offensive snaps over the first 3 games, so it’s a significant loss. KeeSean Johnson is the best bet to step in as the #3 WR, but he’s just a fantasy flier.

Cardinals WR Damiere Byrd has missed the first 2 practices of the week with a hamstring injury, putting his Week 4 status in serious doubt. That's significant considering Byrd has played 92% of Arizona's offensive snaps so far. His absence would likely mean more playing time for rookie WR KeeSean Johnson.

The Cardinals have released WR Michael Crabtree, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Crabtree was a healthy scratch for Week 1 and played just 31 snaps over the past 2 games. Rookie KeeSean Johnson operated as Arizona's #4 WR in Week 3, behind Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald and Damiere Byrd.

The Athletic's Scott Bodrow calls KeeSean Johnson the Cardinals' "clear" #3 WR, behind Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald. Johnson was the 3rd WR Arizona drafted this spring -- after Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler -- but has reportedly had the best camp so far. Isabella and Butler, meanwhile, have both struggled with drops, per Bodrow. This competition is far from over, but Johnson is now on the radar as a late-round flier in fantasy drafts. We just bumped him up the WR rankings.

The Cardinals grabbed Fresno State WR KeeSean Johnson in the 6th round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Johnson racked up 275 catches over 4 seasons at Fresno State, giving him more career grabs than any other WR in this draft class. He averaged a mediocre 12.4 yards per catch, though, and totaled just 24 TDs. A lot of his production was manufactured by WR screens and other quick-hitters. Johnson was also exposed as a subpar athlete at the Combine, recording a 27th percentile SPARQ score at 6'1 and 201 pounds. His best bet at the next level is as a big slot receiver -- but we're not excited about his upside. Arizona has now added WRs Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler and Johnson over the past 3 days.

Here's the full scouting report on KeeSean Johnson.
