Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (groin) will not play in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Kirk has three catches for 57 scoreless yards on nine targets through two games as DeAndre Hopkins has quickly established himself as a target hog in this offense. While fantasy owners in shallow leagues are justified in moving on from him, it is recommended to keep him on the bench for at least one more week. If he can make it back in Week 4, he'll have a two-week run to prove himself against the weak defenses of the Carolina Panthers and New York Jets.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (groin) remains out of practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: Kirk has been an afterthought in the offense the first two weeks. Andy Isabella could see more action if Kirk is out, but neither are worth playing right now.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation during the week to see if Kirk will be able to play. He has only posted 57 yards over the first two games and probably can be kept on the bench even if he is able to play.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught two passes (on four targets) for 57 yards against the Washington Football Team on Sunday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Through two weeks, Kirk has been an afterthought offensively, catching just three passes combined. It's too soon to cut bait on a talented receiver in a high-upside offense, but he's better left on the bench for the time being.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk had one catch for no gain on five targets in Week 1.
Huddle Up: DeAndre Hopkins dominated the targets with 16, and Kirk, Chase Edmonds and Larry Fitzgerald clocked in five each. This is concerning for Kirk, who was ascending to WR3 territory. He should sit until the offense shows evidence of looking his way.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk heads into the 2020 regular season with high expectations, and head coach Kliff Kingsbury praised him. 'We feel like Christian is really an ascending player. He was having a really big year and got banged up a little bit last year,' Kingsbury said.
Huddle Up: Kirk has to share the wealth with DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald, but the way the Arizona offense moves in an up-tempo style, he will still have some pretty solid production. He might even flirt with 1,000 yards, as the Cardinals look for a trio of receivers to go over 1,000 yards for the first time since Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston turned the trick in 2008. Kirk is a nice middle-round pick for depth, as he has a lot of upside and could easily outproduce his ADP.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (undisclosed) returned to practice Friday, Aug. 21, after sitting out the previous day.
Huddle Up: Kirk enjoyed a sophomore bump in 2020 with 68 receptions for 709 yards and three TDs, and while another step would normally be expected, the Cards this offseason added DeAndre Hopkins to the mix, which also includes veteran target monster Larry Fitzgerald. That relegates Kirk to WR4 range for now.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk said his main goal this upcoming season is to stay healthy. He has missed seven games during his first two seasons.
Huddle Up: Kirk has played well when healthy since entering the NFL and will serve as the No. 2 receiver for the Cardinals in 2020 because of the addition of DeAndre Hopkins. Fantasy players can consider Kirk a No. 3 receiver because the Cardinals have the chance to be one of the top offenses this season.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk went without a catch on five targets in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks while running twice for nine yards.
Huddle Up: Kirk lost Kyler Murray under center in the second half, but he was struggling all game for whatever reason. He will look to bounce back in Week 17 in the season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, but this was a tough pill to swallow for fantasy owners trusting Kirk in their championship games.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Kirk has been inconsistent during the second half of the season but will continue to be the main target in the passing game. He can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in fantasy leagues.
