Christian Kirk came into this matchup with the Buccaneers with great target numbers but no touchdowns on 43 receptions. That changed this week, as Kirk has reeled in a 33-yard and a nice 69-yard touchdown midway through the third quarter.
So far Kirk has caught five passes for 123 yards and those two touchdowns as he’s taken advantage of Tampa Bay’s awful pass defense. Kirk’s success has of course been helped by Kyler Murray, who continues to add to his rookie resume. He’s now broken the rookie record for most pass attempts without an interception and put up 262 yards and those Kirk touchdowns with more than a quarter remaining.
Kirk continues his assault, as he brings down a 15-yard touchdown mid-way through the fourth quarter to give him three on the day. He’s now at six receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown trifecta to lead all wide receivers in fantasy points so far this week.
