Is the Cardinals third year receiver primed for a breakout season or will DeAndre Hopkins’ presence take away too many opportunities for Kirk? Sports Illustrated’s fantasy football analysts weigh in.

In his second year in the league with a rookie quarterback under-center, Christian Kirk saw 108 targets for 68 catches and 709 yards while missing three gams. If it wasn’t for Larry Fitzgerald (who played in all 16 games) Kirk would have led the team in targets. Now that Kirk is entering his third year as a pro, there was high expectations for Cardinals young receiver. But then the Cardinals traded for perennial All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins in the off-season and now some think Kirk will see a reduced workload. Sports Illustrated’s fantasy football analyst Frank Taddeo and AllCardinals editor Howard Balzer discuss Kirk’s Average Draft Position and discuss if he’s a value pick based on his ADP.
