23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Jacksonville Jaguars
2019 Fantasy Outlook
A former LSU Tiger, Chark was selected in the second round of the 2018 draft and proceeded to be a non-factor in an unproductive offense for most of the season. He missed five games with a quad injury and had 14 catches for 174 yards, looking very much like a receiver relying on raw talent rather than technical skill. At 6-4, 198 pounds, and with a 4.34 40-yard dash and 40-inch vertical, the 22-year-old still possesses elite tools, but needs to take a significant step forward this offseason in order to utilize them. Dede Westbrook is locked in for regular snaps, but beyond that it's more of a crapshoot for the Jaguars at wide receiver. Chark has a realistic chance to secure the No. 2 or 3 role as he competes with Chris Conley, Marquise Lee and Keelan Cole. The upgrade to Nick Foles at quarterback should help Chark from both a developmental and production standpoint, but at this point it's difficult to call him a potential sleeper given his struggles last year.

November 3, 2019
Chark caught four of nine targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 26-3 loss to the Texans in London.
ANALYSIS
Chark finished with a season-low receiving yardage total, as the entire Jaguars offense was stuck in low gear throughout. This was just a small bump in the road for Chark's second-year breakout campaign. It's unclear at this point whether he'll be catching passes from Gardner Minshew or Nick Foles after Jacksonville's Week 10 bye, but you should continue to deploy Chark as you normally would either way.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 6-4, 198-pound receiver out of LSU was a potential first-round pick in April's draft, but the Jaguars were able to snatch him late in the second round. Chark had a dominant combine with a 4.34 40-yard dash, 40-inch vertical and 129-inch broad jump after posting 40 catches for 874 yards (21.9 average) and three touchdowns for the Tigers in 2017. The 21-year-old seems unlikely to take on a high-volume role due to the Jaguars run-heavy offense and depth of talent at wide receiver, but his potential as a big-play threat could have Chark making significant contributions in his rookie season.
