D.J. Chark Fantasy Football News 2021

The Jaguars have hired Urban Meyer as HC. It'll be his first foray into the NFL after spending over 30 years in the college ranks. Meyer most recently served as Ohio State's HC from 2012-2018, leading the Buckeyes to an 83-9 record and 1 national championship. He also won 2 titles among 6 seasons as Florida's HC and spent 2 years before that as HC at Utah. Meyer was reportedly infatuated with the idea of coaching incoming rookie QB Trevor Lawrence. (Who wouldn't be?) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler hears that Meyer is eyeing Scott Linehan as his OC, although that move isn't official yet.

The Jaguars have fired HC Doug Marrone, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Marrone went 10-6 in his 1st full season at the helm but totaled just 12 wins over the past 3 years. Jacksonville has already been linked to former Ohio State HC Urban Meyer. Whoever gets the gig figures to be working with Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (shin) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Colts. It ends a disappointing season that saw the 3rd-year wideout post a 53-706-5 line in 13 games. With Jacksonville expected to use the 1st overall pick of this spring's draft on QB Trevor Lawrence, Chark will be a prime 2021 bounce-back candidate. WR Collin Johnson (hamstring) is also out for Week 17, leaving Laviska Shenault, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs.

Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) and CB Marcus Peters (calf) are inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Campbell's absence enhances the rushing matchup for Jacksonville RB James Robinson. A secondary missing Peters and CB Jimmy Smith helps the matchup for Jaguars WRs as well.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ribs) isn't listed on the final injury report and will play against the Vikings this weekend. That's a plus matchup, and QB Mike Glennon played well enough last week to make Chark an upside WR3. WR Chris Conley (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game but is off the fantasy radar with Chark back. Keelan Cole and Laviska Shenault will serve as Jacksonville's #2 and #3 WRs.

Jaguars WRs D.J. Chark (ribs) and Chris Conley (hip) put in limited practices on Wednesday. Both guys missed last week's game vs. the Browns but have a shot to return for Sunday's game against the Vikings. We'll continue to keep an eye on their progress.

Jaguars WRs D.J. Chark (ribs) and Chris Conley (hip) are out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. WR Laviska Shenault is set to return from his hamstring injury and will join WR Keelan Cole atop the depth chart. Rookie Collin Johnson figures to operate as the #3 WR. It’s probably a situation to avoid with QB Mike Glennon making his 1st start with Jacksonville — but you can make an argument for Shenault and Cole as WR4s.

Jaguars QB Mike Glennon will start against the Browns this weekend, HC Doug Marrone announced on Wednesday. QB Gardner Minshew evidently isn't ready to return from his thumb injury, and the Jags have seen enough of QB Jake Luton. Glennon at least has 801 NFL pass attempts under his belt, completing 61% and averaging 6.4 yards per attempt. He's not a Week 12 fantasy option but should be an upgrade over Luton.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. D.J. Chark, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley will again serve as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs in that one.

The forecast for today's Jaguars-Packers game calls for sustained winds of 25 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. Temperatures will be in the mid-30s with a chance of snow showers. Those are obviously tough conditions for the passing and kicking games. We've updated our Jaguars and Packers projections.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said Monday that QB Jake Luton will "likely" start against the Packers this weekend. QB Gardner Minshew is expected to remain sidelined with his thumb injury. Luton flashed in his debut yesterday, notably on a 73-yard TD strike to WR D.J. Chark. But he graded out just 21st among QBs on the week, according to Pro Football Focus. Luton remains just a lower-end QB2 for Week 10.

11:10am EDT 10/18/20

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and was reportedly a game-time decision, so Chark obviously won’t be at 100% today. That leaves him as a risk/reward WR3 vs. Detroit’s 24th-ranked WR defense. Chark's presence is good news for QB Gardner Minshew.
