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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.

"Recoverys going well, just being patient and making sure all aspects of my bodys 100 percent when I step back on the field during OTAs."

Fantasy Spin: Kirk was limited to 12 games because of a foot injury but still caught 43 passes for 590 yards and three touchdowns. He should be the top option in the passing game for the Cardinals in 2019 and can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay (ankle), who is questionable for Week 14 against the Cardinals, is expected to play on Sunday, according to a source. Slay is the team's top cornerback, so that's great news for them as they go up against one of the worst offenses in the league. Slay could shadow Cardinals deep-threat wideout J.J. Nelson in this contest. Detroit's defense is a DFS sleeper with Arizona missing rookie Christian Kirk for the rest of the year.

Kirk will finish with 43 receptions on 68 targets for 590 yards and three touchdowns in 2018. Larry Fitzgerald is the main wideout left in Arizona, and JJ Nelson and Chad Williams should serve in three-receiver sets. The Cardinals are a good target for those looking to stream defenses in fantasy over the final four games.
