2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 47th overall pick, Kirk couldn't have landed in a much better spot. Playing opposite 35-year old Larry Fitzgerald, Kirk could be the team's No. 2 WR out of the gate. J.J. Nelson is too slight to be more than an occasional field-stretcher, and Brice Butler is a 28-year old journeyman who's never had a significant role. At 5-11, 200, Kirk has average size and good speed (4.47 40). He can operate out of the slot or outside, and he's dangerous in space - he was an elite punt returner in college. Sam Bradford is competent enough as a quarterback, until 10th overall pick Josh Rosen takes over - either way, the passing game in Arizona should be better than last year. Kirk had charges of disorderly conduct and property damage, stemming from a February incident, dismissed by the Scottsdale City Court in May, so while he's not in any legal jeopardy, he has less margin for errant behavior than the rest of his rookie class.

Kirk suffered a broken foot and will be placed on injured reserve, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
The rookie second-round pick was removed in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 20-17 win over Green Bay, finishing with three catches for 54 yards and one carry for 23 yards. This is a huge loss for an offense that's already at the bottom of the league in most significant categories, as Kirk leads the team in receiving yards (590) and ranks second to Larry Fitzgerald for catches (43), targets (68) and receiving touchdowns (three). Kirk is a huge part of the organizational plan for 2019 and beyond, but the next four weeks will probably get ugly with the likes of Chad Williams (ankle), Trent Sherfield and J.J. Nelson forced into key roles behind Fitzgerald.
