The Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Los Angeles Chargers in the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs. What does this matchup mean for Jaguars WR Christian Kirk? For $5,900 on DraftKings, should you click him into your lineup? We’ll break it down below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Jaguars WR Christian Kirk ($5,900)

This matchup against the Chargers' secondary won’t be easy, but you better believe Kirk will be involved in the Jaguars’ gameplan. The receiver caught 6-of-8 passes last week for 99 yards and a touchdown against the Tennessee Titans. Kirk has posted 15+ fantasy points in three of his last six games, and he flexed upside of 35 fantasy points earlier this season with a cool 9-105-2 line at the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start. Kirk should be considered for your DraftKings lineup for the Saturday-only slate as well as contests that span over the entire weekend. The matchup isn’t great, but Kirk’s price is reasonable, and he has proven 20+ fantasy point upside along with the trust of Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence.
