2021 Fantasy Outlook
A broken clavicle restricted Kirkwood to just one appearance for the Panthers last season, yet the team opted to bring him back for 2021, when he's expected to compete for a depth role in Carolina's receiving corps. Read Past Outlooks

The Panthers waived Kirkwood on Tuesday, Darin Gantt of Panthers.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Kirkwood suffered a severe concussion during a training-camp practice, causing him to be taken off the field on a stretcher and immediately sent to the hospital. The move was made without an injury designation, so it appears that he has fully healed from the incident. Kirkwood caught one of two targets for 13 yards during his lone regular-season appearance in 2020 and will likely land on a practice squad during the 2021 campaign.

The Saints are favored in a game that's expected to have lots of points scored, which will surely make Alvin Kamara a popular fantasy pick on Monday night's two-game slate.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
In signing with the Panthers this offseason, Kirkwood reunited with his college coach, Matt Rhule. The pair spent time together at Temple before Kirkwood joined the Saints in his 2018 rookie season. That campaign saw him catch 13 of 21 targets for 209 yards and two touchdowns, but he was limited to just one appearance last year while nursing a hamstring injury. The 25-year-old will aim to get back on track in his new yet familiar surroundings, but with options like Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel, among others, also around, Kirkwood appears hard-pressed to carve out a very meaningful offensive role this season.
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.
