Christian Kirk Week 3 Outlook - Texans at Jaguars

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sat, Sep 23rd 2023, 4:05am EDT

In Week 2, Kirk had a 77.6% route run rate per team drop back, with a 33.3% Target share in Week 2. While his numbers in Week 1 were disappointing, with Zay Jones out this week, Kirk will be a full-time player in two wide receiver sets that likely kicks into the slot when they go three wide. Last year, with Zay Jones out in Week 4, Kirk played 48% of his snaps in the slot and 44% on the perimeter. When he's outside, he'll face Nelson and Griffin, but when he runs from the slot, he will see M.J. Stewart in coverage (Career: 75.7% catch rate and 115.6 passer rating). The injuries to this Texans' secondary will loom large this week. Derek Stingley, Jalen Pitre, and Tavierre Thomas have all been ruled out. Kirk should ball out again this week. Week 3 Positional Value: WR3/4
