2019 Fantasy Outlook
Kirkwood was unable to break training camp with the Saints, but the undrafted rookie earned a callup from the practice squad in November and immediately secured a spot in the team's receiver rotation. He logged double-digit snaps in the final eight regular-season contests and a season-high 53 in the Saints' divisional-round win over the Eagles, hauling in 15 of 23 targets for 217 yards and three scores over that span. A calf issue forced him out of the NFC Championship Game loss to the Rams, but Kirkwood likely did enough before that to enter 2019 as the fourth man on the depth chart. It would probably take an injury to one of the wideouts ahead of him for Kirkwood to make a consistent fantasy impact during the upcoming campaign, but he's at least aided by the fact that New Orleans made no major additions to their receiver room during the offseason.

Kirkwood (undisclosed) will not suit up for Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers, Herbie Teope of Nola.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Kirkwood has missed the better part of two weeks and the first preseason game dealing with an undislcosed injury. It's still unclear how long he'll be out for, but in his stead, Simmie Cobbs and Austin Carr could see an increase in reps for Sunday's contest.
