Injury Groin




$Signed a four-year, $5.89 million contract with the Cardinals in May of 2018.

October 3, 2020

ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old and fellow wideout DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) were both labeled game-time decisions by coach Kliff Kingsbury on Friday, but both players are apparently expected to play against the Panthers. Kirk worked as a limited practice participant all week, so it’s not a major surprise he’ll be ready to go if he can avoid a pregame setback.

Past Fantasy Outlooks




A broken foot ended his season after 12 games, but Kirk was surprisingly efficient – 13.7 YPC and 8.7 YPT as a rookie – while playing in one of the league’s worst offenses. At 5-11, 200, Kirk has just average size and decent speed (4.47 40). He’s quick enough to operate in the slot – in fact he returned punts both last year and in college – and is dangerous in open space. The problem for Kirk is that the Cardinals not only picked up Larry Fitzgerald’s $11 million base salary, but also drafted Andy Isabella in the second round and Hakeem Butler in the fourth. At press time, the pecking order among the four isn’t entirely clear, but new coach Kliff Kingsbury should direct an up-tempo offense with plenty of passing, and rookie quarterback Kyler Murray has the skills to make it exciting. Kirk will have to start from scratch in a new system along with the rookies, but he got over his broken foot this past winter and is expected to be ready for training camp.

The 47th overall pick, Kirk couldn’t have landed in a much better spot. Playing opposite 35-year old Larry Fitzgerald, Kirk could be the team’s No. 2 WR out of the gate. J.J. Nelson is too slight to be more than an occasional field-stretcher, and Brice Butler is a 28-year old journeyman who’s never had a significant role. At 5-11, 200, Kirk has average size and good speed (4.47 40). He can operate out of the slot or outside, and he’s dangerous in space – he was an elite punt returner in college. Sam Bradford is competent enough as a quarterback, until 10th overall pick Josh Rosen takes over – either way, the passing game in Arizona should be better than last year. Kirk had charges of disorderly conduct and property damage, stemming from a February incident, dismissed by the Scottsdale City Court in May, so while he’s not in any legal jeopardy, he has less margin for errant behavior than the rest of his rookie class.
