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.

Hamstring
November 13, 2019
Kirkwood (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, opening a three-week window for the Saints to activate him from IR, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
ANALYSIS
Kirkwood suffered a serious hamstring injury Week 1 against the Texans, but he's made the necessary strides in recovery. The Saints have until Dec. 4 to activate Kirkwood from IR. However, the 26-year-old wideout is eligible to be activated as soon as Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, although Kirkwood would need to respond superbly to the practice week for that to happen.
