View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • 2021, Kirk’s final year in Arizona, turned up 5 TDs and career highs in catches (77) and yards (984).
  • Kirk posted 2 WR1 lines; 4 inside WR2 range.
  • He played a full slate of games for the first time in his career.
  • Playing mostly out of the slot, Kirk caught a career-high 74.7% of his targets alongside Kyler Murray.
  • Among 33 WRs with 100+ targets, Kirk ranked a mid-pack 20th in yards per route run.
  • The Jags signed Kirk to a massive 4-year, $72 million deal with $37 million guaranteed.
  • He immediately projects as the team’s top target ahead of Marvin Jones and fellow free agent adds Zay Jones and Evan Engram.
  • QB Trevor Lawrence praised Kirk in OTAs, calling him “quarterback friendly” while singling out his speed and football IQ.
  • The Jags swapped out failed HC Urban Meyer for former SB champ Doug Pederson. It’s an upgrade — potentially a huge one — for this offense.
  • In 5 years as Eagles HC, Pederson’s units ranked 10th, 8th, 7th, 13th and 6th in pass attempts. Mix in a suspect defense, and volume figures to be there for Kirk in ’22.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Kirk, only 26 in November, landed one of the most shocking free agent deals in recent memory.

He’s a starting-caliber WR, but to date, he hasn’t proven to be anywhere near elite. Yet the money he’s earning says the Jags see that type of potential. If he can run with the opportunity, 120+ targets are certainly possible in what should be a much-improved offense.

At a 10th round price tag, Kirk makes plenty of sense as a WR4 with upside.

Kirk impressing Lawrence

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has been impressed by WR Christian Kirk this offseason. "He’s great. Just from a football IQ sense, I think he’s really quarterback friendly," Lawrence said. "The way he sees the field, different coverages unfold, the way he runs his routes, I just think he’s quarterback friendly. And then obviously his speed is something that we really needed and it’s going to help us a lot." Jacksonville gave Kirk a boatload of money in free agency -- $72 million over 4 years, with $37 million guaranteed -- making him the favorite to lead the team's WRs in targets this season. Kirk is a solid value at his 11th-round ADP in FFPC best-ball drafts.

NFL Network reports that the Jaguars are expected to sign WR Christian Kirk to a "large deal." Kirk posted career highs in receptions (77) and yards (982) last season, playing 3 more games than his previous high in that category. Kirk spent time both outside and in the slot in Arizona. It's not immediately clear how he and Laviska Shenault will fit together in the offense of new Jacksonville HC Doug Pederson. The money heading Kirk's way certainly positions him as the favorite to lead Jaguars wideouts, though. Marvin Jones also remains in the mix. We'll see what other moves Jacksonville makes at the position.

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. The rookie has now missed the past 3 weeks and is uncertain for the start of the playoffs. Christian Kirk, A.J. Green and Antoine Wesley will continue to operate as Arizona’s top 3 WRs this weekend.

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Colts. Christian Kirk, A.J. Green and Antoine Wesley will serve as Arizona's top 3 WRs, just as they did last week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) "could be back" for the NFC Championship or Super Bowl, but that it'd be "unrealistic" to expect him back any sooner. That jibes with the 6-week timetable for return we got for Hopkins earlier this week. We'll see how Arizona deploys WRs Christian Kirk, A.J. Green, Rondale Moore and Antoine Wesley vs. the Lions today.

Dynasty Write-up
DeAndre Hopkins injuries helped, but Kirk also fended off the arrivals of A.J. Green and rookie Rondale Moore to lead the 2021 Cardinals in targets. He brings a versatile skill set but also a limited ceiling (12.3 yards per catch and 7.2% TD rate career) to Jacksonville. The contract makes it clear Kirk will be a passing-game focal point, but his fit with Zay Jones, Laviska Shenault and a pair of pass-catching TEs is less clear. Kirk won't turn 26 until December, though. This rank finds him significantly higher than we had him heading into the 2021 season.
