Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: KeeSean Johnson likely will have a bigger role in the passing game with Kirk unavailable and Larry Fitzgerald a game-time decision. He could be a possible flex option in deeper fantasy leagues if players are looking for a late-minute replacement.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught seven of his 10 targets for a team-high 76 yards in a 20-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Kirk topped 50 receiving yards for the first time in six games, but his scoreless streak continued. He's a flex option, at best.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught three of his four targets for 33 yards in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: It was just over a month ago Kirk was wrapping up a stretch in which he scored five touchdowns in three games and appeared to be the complement to DeAndre Hopkins that Arizona was hoping for. However, he hasn't scored since Week 9, amassing a measly 145 receiving yards over that time. Fantasy owners should not expect things to change for him in Week 16 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk ended up with three receptions for 14 yards on four targets in Week 14 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Kirk was a mid-season fantasy stud, but he has tailed off and is only worth using in the very deepest of leagues at the moment. He has just seven grabs for 35 yards and no scores on 13 targets in the past three outings.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk ended up with three receptions for 19 yards in Week 12 against the New England Patriots on six targets.
Huddle Up: Kirk has three or more receptions in each of his past five outings, but his yardage total was his fewest since he also had 19 yards on Oct. 4 in Carolina. He is still worth a look as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues, with lesser appeal in standard play. The Cardinals host the Rams in Week 13.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught four passes for 50 yards in a Week 11 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: After scoring five touchdowns in a three-game stretch, Kirk has now totaled eight receptions for 77 yards over his last two games combined. The TD binge made it abundantly clear that Kirk has upside, though trusting him as more than a WR3 on a week-to-week basis is a mistake.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught four of his six targets for 27 yards in a 32-30 win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Kirk had six touchdowns in seven games coming into Week 10, but he ended up having one of his worst overall performances of the season. He should have a chance to bounce back in Week 11 against a Seattle team that he scored twice against a few weeks ago.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk had five receptions for 123 yards and a score against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Nov. 8. Kirk was targeted a team-high eight times.
Huddle Up: After showing little connection with Kirk early on, Kyler Murray has now thrown five TD passes to Kirk in the last three games. The yardage has been spotty -- Week 9 was his first 100-plus-yard performance on 2020 -- but the consistent touchdowns and ample evidence of an expanding role makes Kirk a strong WR3 with some upside.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught five passes for 37 yards and a pair of touchdowns during the team's overtime win against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 25.
Huddle Up: Kirk has now scored four times in the last two games despite catching just seven passes. It's the same kind of thing we've seen from Mike Evans thus far where a lot of TDs have made up for limited receptions. It's dangerous to rely heavily on TDs each week, which keeps Kirk as a flex or, at best, WR3 option moving forward.
