DeAndre Hopkins was the star of highlight reels in Week 10, as he elevated above three defenders to pull down a Hail Mary as time expired to defeat the Bills. That catch was the icing on the cake for a great fantasy day for Hopkins and he will look to build on that heading into Week 11. Will a porous Seattle secondary leave room for other Cardinals wide receivers to make highlight reels of their own? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

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

DeAndre Hopkins bounced back from a poor outing in Week 9 to score 25.7 PPR points in Week 10, with seven receptions for 127 yards and one touchdown. He is still the favorite target of Kyler Murray, which is a coveted role heading into a Week 11 matchup with a Seattle defense that has allowed 13 receiving touchdowns to WRs and an average of 270 receiving yards per game to wideouts. Hopkins is primed for success and should be inserted in all lineups as a WR1 this week.

Christian Kirk has averaged 6.4 targets per game over the last five games, which he has turned into 21 total receptions and an average of 17.2 PPR points. Kirk has gained the trust of Kyler Murray and he has potential for a big game due to his big play ability against a weak Seattle secondary. Look to start Kirk as a WR3/flex play this week.

Larry Fitzgerald has had a rather quiet season, averaging 6.9 points per game with only two double digit performances to date. The plus matchup should boost Fitzgerald’s upside, but even so, he is not reliable enough as the third option in the wide receiver corps behind Hopkins and Kirk. Fitzgerald can be left on benches this week.
