News: 6 days agoChark recorded three catches on four targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Titans.
Spin: Chark was held off the stat sheet in his return from an elbow injury in Week 11, so this was something of a bounce-back performance. The entirety of his production came on long catches of 19 and 15 yards, and most of his targets are likely to continue to come deep down the field. However, with Bryce Young struggling, Chark will be hard-pressed to be a consistent contributor.
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.
