2020 Fantasy Outlook
In signing with the Panthers this offseason, Kirkwood reunited with his college coach, Matt Rhule. The pair spent time together at Temple before Kirkwood joined the Saints in his 2018 rookie season. That campaign saw him catch 13 of 21 targets for 209 yards and two touchdowns, but he was limited to just one appearance last year while nursing a hamstring injury. The 25-year-old will aim to get back on track in his new yet familiar surroundings, but with options like Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel, among others, also around, Kirkwood appears hard-pressed to carve out a very meaningful offensive role this season. Read Past Outlooks

The Panthers re-signed Kirkwood (shoulder) to a one-year deal Monday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Kirkwood only appeared in one contest in 2020, in which he secured one of two targets for 13 yards. He spent most of the season rehabbing from a broken clavicle, which he subsequently re-injured after briefly returning to the lineup Week 6. As a rookie with the Saints back in 2018, Kirkwood had 13 grabs for 209 yards and two scores (all career-high marks) across eight games.

Monday Night Football DFS Breakdown
September 9, 2019
The Saints are favored in a game that's expected to have lots of points scored, which will surely make Alvin Kamara a popular fantasy pick on Monday night's two-game slate.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Kirkwood was unable to break training camp with the Saints, but the undrafted rookie earned a callup from the practice squad in November and immediately secured a spot in the team's receiver rotation. He logged double-digit snaps in the final eight regular-season contests and a season-high 53 in the Saints' divisional-round win over the Eagles, hauling in 15 of 23 targets for 217 yards and three scores over that span. A calf issue forced him out of the NFC Championship Game loss to the Rams, but Kirkwood likely did enough before that to enter 2019 as the fourth man on the depth chart. It would probably take an injury to one of the wideouts ahead of him for Kirkwood to make a consistent fantasy impact during the upcoming campaign, but he's at least aided by the fact that New Orleans made no major additions to their receiver room during the offseason.
