Shark Bites

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (groin) is out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. That should move Andy Isabella into 3-WR sets, putting him in play for DFS tournaments. Kirk’s absence could also mean a few extra targets for WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

The Cardinals released their 1st "unofficial" depth chart of the year Monday, ahead of Friday's preseason opener against the Cowboys. Unsurprisingly, the team lists DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green and Christian Kirk as the top 3 receivers. Kirk would have been the only 1 of the 3 in question, with Hopkins an incumbent and Green a veteran arriving on a sizable 1-year free agent deal. Kirk, meanwhile, has missed some practice time with a "minor" (though unspecified) injury, allowing rookie WR Rondale Moore to generate some buzz. We'll see where things go between these 2 the rest of the month. Moore certainly brings the higher ceiling. We'll see if he can push past Kirk before the regular season. Of course, it's also worth noting that these preseason depth charts can sometimes prove meaningless -- especially this early in the process.

The Cardinals on Saturday placed WR Christian Kirk on the COVID list. That knocks him out for Sunday's game against the Rams and should leave Larry Fitzgerald and KeeSean Johnson as Arizona's 2nd and 3rd wideouts for the regular-season finale. Andy Isabella might also finally make it off the inactive list. We'll see about Kirk's availability for the playoff opener, if Arizona makes it.

11:10am EDT 10/4/20

Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (groin) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. He was limited in practice all week after missing Week 3, so it’s unclear what kind of shape he’ll be in today. Kirk totaled just 3 catches for 57 scoreless yards in 2 games before the injury, so we’d try to leave him on fantasy benches today.
