Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk seems primed to flourish and knows the offense, in the opinion of beat writer Darren Urban.
Huddle Up: Kirk had a 43-590-3 rookie campaign and tied his season high with eight targets in the season finale. His other eight-target game led to his best game of the year with seven grabs for 90 yards. He'll be a pick to click later in drafts.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk has shown a 'good feel' for the offense, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: With his speed and explosiveness, Kirk could be one of the main beneficiaries of Kingsbury's offensive-minded approach and the addition of quarterback Kyler Murray. He's worth a look as a WR4, and he has the potential to emerge as a fantasy starter.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk could be used as 'a bubble screen guy where you get it in his hands' in the mold of Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen, according to one NFL executive.
Huddle Up: Kirk has flashed his explosiveness, albeit in sporadically, and finding more ways to put the ball in his hands is only going to increase his chances of producing big plays. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense could be just what the doctor ordered to unleash Kirk's full potential, and he's a great target in the later rounds of drafts.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught six of the seven catchable passes thrown in his direction at least 20 yards down the field for 227 yards and a touchdown as a rookie in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Kirk broke his foot in early December but was starting to emerge as a playmaker for the woeful Cardinals. The new regime should suit him well, however, as the Texas A&M product was one of the draft's best run-after-catch receivers a year ago, and head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense should allow for plenty of those opportunities. Kirk is a player fantasy owners should keep in mind as a deep sleeper in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (foot) expects to be fully healed from his broken foot by the end of February. Kirk suffered the injury in Week 12 last season. Doctors said his recovery process is going well. 'I'm doing all the things I can to make sure I'm the best me,' Kirk said.
Huddle Up: Kirk performed well overall as a rookie despite Arizona's disappointing year. He and Josh Rosen showed glimpses of a future dynamic duo. Even with Larry Fitzgerald returning, Kirk possesses WR3 upside as Arizona's No. 2 wide receiver.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (foot) said he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a foot injury.
Huddle Up: Kirk showed promise as a rookie before the injury, and he should enter 2019 as the No. 2 option in the passing game across from Larry Fitzgerald. His success will be somewhat tied to the development of quarterback Josh Rosen, but Kirk will have WR3 potential.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: Kirk's absence equates to more looks for Larry Fitzgerald and Ricky Seals-Jones, at least in an ideal world. Fitz is the primary beneficiary, though, and he and David Johnson are the only Cardinals worth starting going forward.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk registered three receptions for 54 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Kirk has shown some signs of fantasy usefulness even with some erratic play from the quarterback position. He has three or more grabs in 10 of his past 11 games to emerge as a decent WR4 in PPR formats. Kirk is also a nice player for those in dynasty fantasy formats.
