News: 10 hours agoChark caught three of four targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Buccaneers.
Spin: Chark placed second on the team in receiving yards, trailing only rookie Jonathan Mingo. With Carolina's offensive struggles hurting his stock, Chark's output Sunday marked just his second game with over 50 yards. Next up is a divisional meeting with the Saints, against whom Chark caught one pass for 15 yards in Week 1 this season.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Chark signed with the Panthers after spending his first five NFL seasons with the Jaguars and Lions. The 2018 second-round pick enjoyed his big breakout back in 2019 (73-1008-8 receiving line), but he hasn't been able to repeat that success since. Durability has been a major roadblock, as he has missed 28 of a possible 82 regular-season games (24.6%). That includes six during a 2022 season in Detroit in which he led the NFL with a 15.6 aDOT but was limited to only 52 targets in 11 games. The good news is that Chark could settle in as high as first in line for targets in a new-look Carolina offense led by coach Frank Reich and first-overall pick Bryce Young. Chark's durability is a concern, but he has a path to weekly flex value when on the field.
