News: 5 days agoKirk secured four of six targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' 37-17 loss to the Texans on Sunday.
Spin: Kirk finished tied for second on Jacksonville in receptions while also finishing as the runner-up in receiving yards. He was on the receiving end of Trevor Lawrence's only touchdown toss, recording a 26-yard scoring grab early in the final period. Kirk didn't see any boost in volume despite the absence of Zay Jones (knee), but his first trip to the end zone this season made it two straight strong fantasy efforts following his 11-110 line in Week 2. Kirk will aim to keep the momentum going overseas in a Week 4 matchup against the Falcons in London.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Kirk signed with the Jaguars last offseason and proceeded to have the best season of his career. The 2018 second-round pick posted modest numbers during four seasons in Arizona but was a featured target in Jacksonville and ended up no lower than 15th among WRs in targets, receptions, yards, TDs and fantasy points. The 26-year-old will remain a featured target in a Jaguars offense on the ascent, but the arrival of Calvin Ridley figures to reduce his volume a bit. Kirk had never produced a top-25 fantasy campaign prior to 2022 and, especially with Ridley, Zay Jones, Evan Engram and Travis Etienne in the mix this season, he's safest viewed as a high-floor WR3 in 2023.
