The Jaguars added LSU WR D.J. Chark with the 61st overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Chark’s stock got a big boost when he ran a 4.34-second 40-yard dash at the Combine. He also posted 90th+ percentile marks in the broad and vertical jumps, earning a SPARQ score in the 96th percentile. Chark didn’t post huge numbers at LSU. He went without a single catch in his first 2 seasons before a 26-466-3 line in 2016. This past year brought a quasi-breakout, with Chark hauling in 40 balls for 874 yards and 3 scores. His 21.9 yards per catch led the entire country among players with 40+ receptions. It’s certainly worth noting that Chark played on a bad LSU passing game. He accounted for 22.3% of the catches, 33.0% of the yards and 17.6% of the TDs last year. And his 2.92 yards per route run ranked 12th among draft-eligible receivers, per Pro Football Focus. Chark at least looks like a guy who can bring big-play ability to Jacksonville. But he’ll need to refine the other parts of his game — notably his route running and hands — if he wants to turn into more than a boom-or-bust fantasy option. Chark joins a crowded Jaguars WR group that also includes Marqise Lee, Dede Westbrook, Donte Moncrief and Keelan Cole.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

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 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.
