What to do with DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald in Week 6 fantasy football

We go over DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Cardinals Week 6 matchup against the Cowboys.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals head to Dallas this week in what could be a huge game for Cardinals wideouts from a fantasy perspective. Well, at least one of the wideouts.

Fantasy Football analysis: Cardinals WRs DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald

There’s a clear number one guy in this group and it’s DeAndre Hopkins. He has over three times the production of any other Arizona wide receiver through five games. His 45 catches and 528 yards is the best in the NFL.

Dallas gives up almost 250 yards per game in the air, and has given up close to 300 in the first three weeks of the season. Receivers average an absurd 31 points against the Cowboys defense in fantasy. Even the worst performance of the year, the New York Giants, still averaged 17 points each.

Hopkins is sure to draw a lot of attention, as he does with every defense. So it may open opportunities for guys like Christian Kirk or Larry Fitzgerald to have big days. But Hopkins is the best wideout in the NFL for a reason: he can get open against virtually anybody.

He also has double the targets compared to anybody else in the receiving corps and has been a security blanket for second year QB Kyler Murray.

Expect another big day from him.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Hopkins. Sit Kirk and Fitzgerald.
