News: 2 days agoChark secured four of eight targets for 41 receiving yards during Sunday's 27-3 loss to Pittsburgh.
Spin: Chark exploded with seven catches for 146 yards and a touchdown in quarterback Jake Luton's first start Week 9 against the Texans, but he's produced a tempered eight receptions for 97 yards in two outings since. Despite the offensive struggles, exemplified by just one total passing TD for the Jaguars between Weeks 10 and 11, Chark remains the clear No. 1 receiving option. The 24-year-old has averaged 8.2 targets per game since Week 4. Jacksonville will next prepare for a home test against Cleveland on Sunday.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Chark entered 2019 with little fanfare, despite the fact that he was a second-round pick entering his second NFL season and positioned for a significant boost in playing time. It didn't take long for the former LSU star to get noticed. Despite Jacksonville's offensive dysfunction, Chark posted a 73-1,008-8 receiving line. His 12 end-zone targets (over 15 contests) tied for fifth most in the league and only 16 receivers scored more fantasy points. Chark is 23 years old with the size and speed to sustain top-tier production. With Gardner Minshew entering his second season and Jay Gruden perhaps adding a spark to the offense, Chark has the look of a good WR3 with upside.
