Player Outlook
Kirk has an opportunity to run away with the Jaguars' WR1 role in 2024 after playing second fiddle to Calvin Ridley at times in 2023. Before his injury, Kirk was the WR19 in Fantasy points per game and that number should rise with an increase in target share. He'll have to compete with Bills castoff Gabe Davis and rookie Brian Thomas for targets, but Kirk is the only receiver of the three with a built-in rapport with QB Trevor Lawrence. Kirk also occupies the coveted slot role in Doug Pederson's offense. Kirk makes for an excellent target in the Rounds 5-6 range of your drafts.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Feeling healthy again

    Kirk (groin) said Monday that he feels back to full health and looks forward to leading Jacksonville's revamped wide receiver room in 2024, Shaaz Peerani of WJXX ABC 25 Jacksonville reports. Kirk missed the final five games of the 2023 season due to a groin issue, but he said that he's now healthy and "ready to wake some people back up and remind them of the type of player I am." The 27-year-old is now the most experienced starter in the Jaguars' wideout corps, with Calvin Ridley and Zay Jones having been replaced by Gabe Davis and rookie first-round pick Brian Thomas. Kirk praised Thomas and second-year pro Parker Washington, but the 27-year-old is the favorite to re-emerge as Trevor Lawrence's most trusted target, with tight end Evan Engram also primed to occupy a key role in the passing game.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Finishes with 787 yards in 12 games

    Kirk (groin) finished the 2023 season with 57 catches on 85 targets for 787 yards and three touchdowns in 12 appearances. He also rushed once for six yards. Kirk took a step back after setting career highs in catches (84), receiving yards (1,108) and touchdowns (eight) in his first season with the Jaguars, though he had similar per-game numbers besides the decline in the notoriously fickle touchdown category. He missed the final five games of the season as the Jaguars collapsed down the stretch and missed the playoffs at 9-8, but Kirk is expected to be healthy by the start of the 2024 campaign and is thus in line to reprise a starting role on the outside opposite Calvin Ridley.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Not playing in Week 18

    Kirk (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans. Though Jacksonville reinstated Kirk from injured reserve Saturday after he had missed the required four contests while recovering from core-muscle surgery, he'll need more time to heal up before he's ready for game action. Kirk rejoined the Jaguars for practice this week, but he was limited in each of the team's three sessions before being listed as questionable heading into the weekend. If the Jaguars are able to punch their ticket to the postseason with a win over Tennessee, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network relays that Jacksonville expects to have Kirk available for the wild-card round.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Uncertain to play Sunday

    Kirk (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans but is uncertain to be available for the regular-season finale, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. While the Jaguars' decision to activate Kirk from injured reserve Saturday would seemingly point toward the wideout suiting up Sunday, his availability for the contest apparently isn't locked in just yet. Kirk had missed Jacksonville's last four games while recovering from core-muscle surgery before he resumed practicing this week, though he never managed anything more than limited participation. Official word on Kirk's status will arrive when Jacksonville posts its inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, but even if he's cleared to play, the 27-year-old could have his snaps managed carefully.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Officially activated off IR

    Kirk (groin) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After practicing in limited fashion all week, Kirk was seemingly trending in this direction. Although he is now on the active roster, the pass catcher remains questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Titans. Final confirmation on his status will depend on how he feels during his pre-game workout.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Trending toward playing Sunday

    Kirk (groin), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup for the Titans, appears likely to be activated off injured reserve, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. It appears as if Kirk, who is eligible to be activated off injured reserve at any time, could suit up Sunday, but in order for that to occur the Jaguars must first have him rejoin the active roster. It helps that Kirk also managed to practice in limited fashion all week, giving more credence to Rapoport's report. If the move does get made, expect the productive wide receiver to still be technically listed as questionable leading up to Sunday's contest, with a pre-game workout likely determining whether he'll officially play.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Gets Week 18 questionable tag

    The Jaguars list Kirk (groin) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. After missing four consecutive games while recovering from core-muscle surgery, Kirk was designated for return from injured reserve Wednesday and was a limited participant in each of the Jaguars' three practices this week. While the Jaguars haven't ruled Kirk out from playing in Sunday's regular-season finale, the team will need to add him back to the 53-man roster before 4 p.m. ET on Saturday in order for him to be eligible. If he's not activated ahead of Sunday's contest, the Jaguars would still have the option of bringing Kirk back in advance of the wild-card round of the playoffs, should the team clinch a postseason berth.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Limited in first two practices of week

    Kirk (groin) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Since being designated for return from injured reserve Wednesday, Kirk has turned in a pair of limited practice sessions, keeping hope alive that he may be able to put an end to his four-game absence this Sunday in Tennessee. In order for Kirk to be eligible to play in Week 18, however, the Jaguars would first have to add him back to the 53-man roster by no later than 4 p.m. ET on Saturday. Even if Kirk hasn't made enough progress in his recovery from core-muscle surgery to play against Tennessee, he would still have an opportunity to return to action during the wild-card round, should Jacksonville punch its ticket to the postseason with a victory over the Titans.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Designated for IR return

    The Jaguars designated Kirk (groin) for return from injured reserve Wednesday. The move opens a 21-day window in which Kirk can practice without being on the active roster. The Jaguars reportedly hope to have him back for Sunday's game against Tennessee, but it's far from a sure thing with the wide receiver less than a month removed from core-muscle surgery. Kirk would need to be activated by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday to play Week 18, and it isn't yet clear if he would be catching passes from Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) or C.J. Beathard if available. The Jaguars can clinch the AFC South title with a win this week, while a loss either leaves them as the No. 7 seed or out of the playoffs entirely.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Could suit up Week 18

    Kirk (groin) will have his 21-day practice window open Wednesday, and he could return for Sunday's regular-season finale versus Tennessee, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports. Kirk went on IR on Dec. 8, and he's sat out the required four games to be eligible to return. That's far from a guarantee for Week 18 given the wideout's long layoff, but Jacksonville could certainly use Kirk's talents against the Titans on Sunday as the team can clinch the AFC South with a win. Kirk's practice level during Week 18 prep should provide insight about his chances of suiting up for the regular-season finale.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Placed on IR

    The Jaguars placed Kirk (groin) on injured reserve Friday. Per Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network, Kirk will undergo surgery to address a core muscle/groin injury and will miss at least four games following his placement on IR. While Kirk is out of the lineup, rookie Parker Washington should step into a steady role in three-receiver sets alongside Calvin Ridley and Zay Jones.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Reportedly headed to IR

    The Jaguars are expected to place Kirk (groin) on injured reserve Friday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. Per Wolfe, Kirk will require surgery to address a core muscle/groin injury. Once the wideout lands on IR, he would miss at least the next four games, making him ineligible to return to the Jacksonville lineup until Week 18. Kirk's upcoming absence should open up a few extra looks in the passing game for Calvin Ridley, Zay Jones and Evan Engram, while rookie Parker Washington -- who recorded six catches for 61 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 34-31 overtime loss to Cincinnati -- should settle into a regular role in three-receiver sets.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Set to miss time

    Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that Kirk will "miss some time" due to the core muscle injury that he suffered during Monday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Bengals, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports. Kirk departed following a 26-yard catch on the Jaguars' first offensive play of the game with what was termed a groin injury at the time. He was ruled out after halftime. Pederson already has said Kirk won't be available for Sunday's game at Cleveland, so Jacksonville's top wide receivers in Week 14 will be Calvin Ridley, Zay Jones and Parker Washington. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Kirk may require surgery to address the issue, which likely would sideline him until the later stages of the playoffs, assuming the team makes a run.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Officially out

    Kirk (groin) will not return to Monday's matchup with the Bengals, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports. Kirk tweaked his groin on a 26-yard reception on the Jaguars' first offensive play and subsequently limped to the locker room under his own power. In his absence, Zay Jones figures to continue seeing No. 2 receiver reps alongside Calvin Ridley, while Tim Jones and Parker Washington also could see some snaps.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Heads to locker room

    Kirk is questionable to return to Monday's matchup with the Bengals due to a groin injury, Demetrius Harvey of The Florida Times-Union Kirk was able to limp to the locker room under his own power. He suffered the injury on a 26-yard connection with quarterback Trevor Lawrence on the Jags' first offensive play. Zay Jones would be the primary beneficiary if Kirk is unable to return, while Tim Jones and Parker Washington also could see increased reps.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Makes 57-yard catch in Week 12 win

    Kirk caught four of seven targets for 89 yards in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Texans. Kirk stepped out of bounds on the 1-yard line at the end of a 57-yard catch with one second left in the first half. That play helped him ultimately tie for the team lead in receiving yards with Calvin Ridley, though Ridley scored his third touchdown in the past two games while Kirk has been stuck on three touchdowns since Week 7. Despite Ridley's recent uptick in production, Kirk still leads the team with 761 receiving yards heading into a Week 13 Monday Night Football home game against the Bengals.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: WRs to Start

    Kirk was overshadowed by Calvin Ridley in Week 11 against Tennessee with three catches for 48 yards on six targets. Ridley, meanwhile, had seven catches for 103 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets, and I hope he can stay hot this week against the Texans. But I'm going back to Kirk as the preferred Fantasy receiver in Jacksonville this week, and Kirk had four catches for 54 yards and a touchdown on six targets against Houston in Week 3. He's scored at least 13.9 PPR points in seven of his past nine games, and I expect Trevor Lawrence to lean on Kirk once again in this key divisional game. Consider Kirk a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues, with Ridley right behind him as a borderline No. 2 Fantasy option. Ridley only had three catches for 40 yards on seven targets against Houston in Week 3.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Overshadowed by Ridley

    Kirk recorded three receptions on six targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 34-14 win over the Titans. Kirk has spent much of the season as the Jaguars' top target, though he took a backseat to Calvin Ridley in the Week 11 win. Despite fairly consistent volume, Kirk now has fewer than 50 receiving yards in three of his last five games after failing to reach that mark only once in his first five contests of the season. Zay Jones also returned to the field against the Titans, and he could lead Trevor Lawrence to further disperse targets moving forward.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: Tops 100 yards in Week 10 loss

    Kirk caught six of 11 targets for 104 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 34-3 loss to the 49ers. Kirk was the only member of Jacksonville's offense that found a modicum of success against San Francisco's stout defense, as no teammate produced more than 44 scrimmage yards. His fumble was a costly one, though, as it came on San Francisco's 6-yard line. Kirk entered Week 10 one target shy of tight end Evan Engram's team lead, but Kirk surpassed Engram in that category and now leads the Jaguars in targets (71) and receiving yards (624), as well as receiving touchdowns (three). The wide receiver will have a nice opportunity to add to those totals in Week 11 against Tennessee's underwhelming secondary, one day after his 27th birthday.

  • Jaguars' Christian Kirk: WRS to Start

    Kirk had a down game the last time we saw him in Week 8 at Pittsburgh with just four catches for 46 yards on five targets, but prior to that he had scored at least 13.9 PPR points in six games in a row. I expect him to get back on track in Week 10 against San Francisco since Kirk remains the go-to target for Trevor Lawrence. Calvin Ridley is also worth using as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in Week 10 since the 49ers are No. 3 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, but Kirk is safer with just as much upside based on what both Jaguars receivers have done this year.
