Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk was listed on the first practice participation report of Week 15 with an ankle injury. Kirk and fellow receiver Andy Isabella (shoulder) were both listed as limited as the team begins preparations to host the Cleveland Browns.

Kirk injured his ankle in Week 4 and missed three weeks. He was on the injury report in Week 8, but has not appeared since. There is no word if this is an aggravation of his previous injury, or a new ankle injury.

Fantasy football analysis: Cardinals WR Christian Kirk

Kirk has been a solid PPR receiver, but less so as a standard option. Last week, he had eight receptions for 85 yards, and has six or more receptions in six of his ten games this season.

The Browns have given up the 12th fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, so this matchup isn’t exactly a walk in the park. He’s worth a flex start in PPR leagues if active.
