Christian Kirk Fantasy Football Outlook (2021)

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Aug 12th 2021, 7:04am EDT

There was a stretch of games during the 2020 season where Kirk was finally living up to his potential, as he posted 9.4-plus half-PPR points in five straight games, including three games with 18-plus points. He fell off a cliff after that, leading fantasy managers to search for new options in 2021, but there might be a reason to head back to the well. With the addition of A.J. Green, it's likely we see Kirk move to the slot, which is where I believe he should've been playing all along. Despite being inefficient and limited in athleticism at his advanced age, Larry Fitzgerald saw 112, 109, and 72 targets as the primary slot receiver over the last three years under Kliff Kingsbury. If Kirk can get near the 100-target mark, he'll be a value in drafts.
