Player Outlook

Was Chark's 2019 a fluke, or was he held back by poor quarterback play in 2020? It's an interesting question to consider, but you're going to have to pay a top-80 pick to find out. Is it worth it? Chark should be in a much better situation with Trevor Lawrence throwing him the ball, and he still showed flashes even with the subpar QB play he was saddled with in 2020. However, with up-and-comer Laviska Shenault and new addition Marvin Jones competing for targets, Chark is no sure thing to be the No. 1 option in a Jacksonville offense that may be pretty run-heavy given how Urban Meyer's teams operated in college. Chark carries 1,000-plus yard upside and could be a big bounce-back candidate this season, but you'll feel better about him as your No. 3 or even No. 4 WR on Draft Day.

Player News
  • Coach Urban Meyer challenged Chark (shin) to get stronger during the offseason, and the wideout has already added seven pounds in the weight room, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports. Meyer didn't like what he saw from the 24-year-old when reviewing film from the 2020 season, and the new coach approached the wideout to voice his concerns. It's a pivotal point in Chark's career as he enters a contract year, and he should benefit from more stability at quarterback with rookie first overall pick Trevor Lawrence taking the reins. Chark eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards with eight touchdowns in 2019, but he struggled to find consistency last season with 706 receiving yards and five scores. The addition of Marvin Jones should also help open downfield opportunities for Chark, and the offense as a whole.

  • Chark (shin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts. The 24-year-old was unable to practice this week due to the shin injury and won't be available for Week 17. It's a disappointing end to a disappointing season for Chark, who finishes with 53 receptions for 706 yards and five touchdowns in 13 games after breaking out with a 1,000-yard campaign in 2019. Laviska Shenault, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley are poised to lead Jacksonville's receiving corps in the season finale.

  • Chark (shin) remained sidelined at practice Thursday. With Chark now having logged consecutive DNPs, his status for Sunday's game against the Colts is cloudy. If he ends up missing Jacksonville's season finale, added snaps and targets will be available for Laviska Shenault, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley.

  • Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that he's unsure about Chark's chances of playing Week 17 against the Colts while the receiver tends to a shin injury, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports. Jacksonville hadn't previously announced that Chark picked up an injury in the Week 16 loss to the Bears, during which he played 75 percent of the offensive snaps and grabbed four of seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown. Chark's activity (or lack thereof) in practices Wednesday through Friday will likely determine whether the wideout plays in the season finale, but the Jaguars could be hesitant to keep him active if he's not able to advance to full participation by the end of the week. The 1-14 Jaguars have little at stake Week 17, so it would make sense for the organization to take a cautious approach with a player who will be a big part of its plans in 2021.

  • Chark brought in four of seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' 41-17 loss to the Bears on Sunday. Chark's touchdown reception, which came from 20 yards out on an impressive catch in the left corner of the end zone, actually pulled the Jaguars even with the Bears at 10-10 in the second quarter. While Chicago would go on to separate comfortably in the second half, Chark was able to pace Jacksonville in receiving yardage while finding the end zone for the first time since Week 9. Chark will look to follow up his solid numbers with even better production as the Jags close out a forgettable season versus the Colts on the road in Week 17.
