We go over the fantasy football outlook of DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Larry Fitzgerald ahead of the Cardinals Week 15 matchup against the Eagles.

Game day update: ESPN thinks DeAndre Hopkins is in line for another huge day, projected at 17.2 fantasy points in PPR leagues against the Eagles. Christian Kirk is projected at 8.4 points and Larry Fitzgerald is projected at 7.8 points.

After three games where he didn’t crack 60 receiving yards, DeAndre Hopkins roared back to life last week in the Arizona Cardinals’ win over the New York Giants. He caught nine passes on 11 targets for 136 yards. There weren’t many other targets to go around, so Hopkins’ fellow receivers didn’t see much in the way of production. What can we expect fantasy-wise from Arizona’s top three receivers this week against the Eagles?

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

Hopkins is a safe bet in your lineup every week. Even with a down period like the three games before this one—though how much of that can be blamed on Kyler Murray’s achy shoulder?—he’s a threat every week to break off big numbers. And the Eagles have been kind to No. 1 receivers this season, giving up 90 yards or more to three such players in three of their last five games.

Fitzgerald and Kirk combined for 24 yards on five catches last week. Neither player is consistently putting out 60 yards or more in a game, and both can be left off your fantasy football radar this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start DeAndre Hopkins. Sit Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald.
