2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Second-round draft pick Christian Kirk is believed to be the heir-apparent in the slot for veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Kirk dominated the SEC, catching 70 or more passes in each of his three seasons at Texas A&M, despite playing alongside second-rate talent at the quarterback position.

The concern for Kirk's immediate fantasy value is that, while he projects to be a great slot receiver, he is not likely to pry away many of those snaps from Fitzgerald. That means that he'll have to fight to get on the field as an outside receiver first. Thankfully for him, the Cardinals' roster is relatively weak from a talent perspective and only J.J. Nelson has played significant snaps outside in Arizona in recent seasons, but Kirk is still a rookie who will likely split work with others to start the season.

One additional area that is intriguing with Kirk is his prowess as a return specialist. Kirk's total of seven punt and one kickoff return for a touchdown in his three seasons at Texas A&M is impressive and shows that he has the vision and athleticism to make plays after the catch. If Kirk can earn additional work as a return man in Arizona, he could present some significant additional value to those in return yardage formats; or even in standard formats if he can score a couple of times.

Kirk is currently going undrafted in many leagues so he presents some interesting PPR upside as a potential starter in the Arizona offense, but his real value will be unlocked down the road when he eventually takes over for Fitzgerald in the slot.

Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals depth chart included Brice Butler getting the nod as the team’s No. 2 wide receiver. (Arizona Sports)

FFToday's Take: The 28-year-old spent his first couple NFL seasons with the Oakland Raiders and then played for the Dallas Cowboys from 2015-17. Last season, Butler posted a career-best 317 yards on just 15 receptions over 13 games. He scored three touchdowns and had 10 first downs on those catches. He's worth a look in 12-team leagues -- though the Cards also have Chad Williams, Christian Kirk and J.J. Nelson competing for looks.
