Don't look now, but Kirk is actually the WR20 on the season in Half PPR scoring currently. This Arizona offense is steamrolling the competition and Kirk has benefited greatly as a result. It's not just Murray making things happen though and Kirk benefiting from fantastic QB play, he's been making plays himself. He has a 83.3% catch rate on the season, he's averaging just shy of 14 Yards Per Reception, and he has a 127.8 Passer Rating when targeted this season. We need to move Kirk up our rankings into the weekly starter conversation, regardless of the matchup. This week, against the Packers defense that's allowing over a touchdown per game on average to the WR position, Kirk belongs in your lineup as a high-end FLEX play with upside.In previous seasons, we had been able to look at Hines as a bye week fill-in option and someone that we knew was going to have guaranteed volume that we could fall back on. However, here are Hines' recent fantasy finishes: RB84, RB66, RB48, and RB53. This is Taylor's backfield and we simply can't trust Hines in our starting lineups anymore. In fact, there's a conversation to be had about whether or not he's even worth rostering at this point.
