Jaguars' DJ Chark: Clear for Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ribs) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Minnesota, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

The 24-year-old sat out Week 12 due to the rib injury and began the week practicing as a limited participant, but he was able to show enough to avoid the questionable tag. Chark will be seeing his first game action with Mike Glennon at quarterback, who took over the starting job last week.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ribs) remained limited at practice Thursday.

Chark was unable to practice last week, so back-to-back practices -- albeit in a limited fashion -- have the wideout trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Vikings approaches. Friday's final injury report of the week should reveal whether he heads into the weekend listed as questionable, or minus a Week 13 injury designation.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Practices in limited fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ribs) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Chark wasn't able to practice in any capacity prior to being ruled out for last weekend's game against the Browns, so his ability to begin the current week as a limited participant is a sign of progress. Mike Glennon is in line to start at quarterback during Sunday's game in Minnesota, so if Chark is cleared to return Week 13, he'll face the challenge of working with his third different signal-caller of the season.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Ruled out this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ribs) won't play Sunday against the Browns, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site

The same applies to Chris Conley (hip), but on the plus side for the Jaguars, Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is slated to return to action this weekend and he should head the team's Week 12 wideout corps along with Keelan Cole.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Logs another DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ribs) didn't practice Thursday.

Back-to-back absences put Chark's status for Sunday's game against the Browns in doubt. A return to practice Friday, in any capacity, would bolster his chances of suiting up this weekend. In addition to Chark being banged up, it's also worth noting that fellow wideouts Laviska Shenault (hamstring) and Chris Conley (hip) were limited at practice Thursday.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to injured ribs.

Chark handled his typical workload in last week's loss to the Steelers, but he may have been playing hurt during the contest. He'll look to upgrade his participation by Friday to have a shot to play Sunday against the Browns, who will be without No. 1 cornerback Denzel Ward (calf). If Chark is able to play, he'll catch passes from his third quarterback of the year, as Mike Glennon has been named the Week 12 starter.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Logs four catches against Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark secured four of eight targets for 41 receiving yards during Sunday's 27-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

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.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Team's leading receiver in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark caught four of five targets for 56 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-20 road loss to the Packers.

On the heels of a 146-yard, one-TD performance last week against the Texans, Chark again finished as his team's leading receiver despite ranking third behind Chris Conley (eight) and Keelan Cole (seven) in targets. After compiling 73 receptions and 1,008 receiving yards during a breakout 2019, Chark now has 37 total catches for 493 yards through his first eight appearances of the 2020 campaign. A Week 11 matchup against the Steelers is formidable, with Pittsburgh ranking third best in catch rate allowed to opposing wideouts (61.9 percent). However, Pittsburgh is tied for fifth worst with 12 receiving TDs surrendered to opposing WRs, so Chark could provide a lucrative fantasy week nonetheless.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Ready for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (illness) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in Green Bay.

Chark didn't practice Thursday due to a non-COVID-19-related illness, but the ailment won't hurt his ability to suit up this weekend. He'll look to produce against a Packers defense that has given up 7.9 yards per target and eight touchdowns to wide receivers in eight games (both top 10 most stingy) this season.

November 12, 2020 06:52 PM
Jaguars' DJ Chark: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (illness) didn't practice Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

The report did specify that Chark's illness is not COVID-related, so for now it looks like he should be able to recover in time for Sunday's game against the Packers. Friday's injury report will reveal whether the wideout approaches that game with a Week 10 injury designation or gains full clearance to play this weekend.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Torches Texans for 146 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark caught seven of 12 targets for 146 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-25 loss to the Texans.

Chark made a huge impact early in the game with a 73-yard touchdown catch and run to get his team on the board. The big play accounted for half his yardage output on the day, but he still came through with some other notable gains en route to a new season high in that department. Chark's outburst was especially surprising considering Jake Luton was making his first career start under center, and the duo will look to build on this productive effort next Sunday in an effort to keep up with the high-scoring Packers.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Fails to produce in shootout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark caught one of seven targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers.

Chark led Jacksonville in targets again, but he was again inefficient despite seeing notable volume and a favorable gamescript. The third-year wideout and quarterback Gardner Minshew rarely seemed to be on the same page Sunday, as a number of Chark's targets came in the form of low or off-target throws. The lack of a connection was perhaps most evident on Jacksonville's final drive of the game as Minshew threw a deep ball out of bounds to Chark, who nearly reeled it in on third and eight. Then, on fourth and eight to essentially seal the game, Minshew missed a wide open Chark for what would have been a first down. The 2018 second-round pick was limited in practice all week due to an ankle issue, so it's possible that his efficiency issues can be blamed in part on injuries. Whatever the case, Chark will look to get right during Jacksonville's Week 8 bye.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Ready for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The 24-year-old was listed as a limited practice participant all week. Chark will look to get back on track after an uneven performance in the Jaguars' Week 6 loss to the Lions, during which he caught seven of 14 targets for 45 yards.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Chark was listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions, but he ended up suiting up and logging 57 of 64 snaps in the 34-16 loss, finishing with seven receptions for 45 yards on 14 targets. The wideout isn't believed to have experienced any setbacks coming out of the game, so his limitations Wednesday are likely maintenance-related.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Inefficient with huge volume
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark recorded seven receptions on 14 targets for 45 yards in Week 6 against the Lions.

Chark entered the game with 20 targets in four games and nearly doubled his season total with this performance. However, the results expected from such volume didn't come, as he averaged only 3.2 yards per target and also failed to find the end zone. Nevertheless, Chark was clearly quarterback Gardner Minshew's top option and seemed to escape without any setbacks to an ankle injury that left him questionable to suit up entering the day. Chark will look to work more efficiently in Week 7 against the Chargers.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Chark's status came down to a game-time call after he only managed one limited practice this week due to an ankle injury, but he demonstrated enough health in his pregame workout to receive the green light to play. The wideout is expected to handle his normal starting role Sunday, and he should benefit from a plus matchup versus a soft Lions pass defense that's missing No. 1 cornerback Desmond Trufant (hamstring).

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Viewed as game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, is being viewed by the Jaguars as a game-time decision, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Pelissero's report paints a less rosier picture of Chark's health than one issued late Saturday by Adam Schefter of ESPN, who indicated the wideout was likely to play. In any case, Chark's status will come down to how he fares in a pregame workout, with a final word on his availability (or lack thereof) coming when the Jaguars release their inactive list around 11:30 a.m. ET. If Chark can't go, Laviska Shenault, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley would serve as quarterback Gardner Minshew's top options in the passing game.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Likely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Lions, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 24-year-old put in a limited practice Friday to earn the questionable tag, and he's set to play Week 6 barring a pregame setback. Chark's official status will become clear when the Jags release their inactives list about 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Questionable Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

The 24-year-old sat out the first two practices of the week, but he was able to put in a limited session Friday to earn the questionable tag. Chark appears to be trending in the right direction for Sunday's matchup in the Lions, though his status may not be fully determined until the Jaguars release their list of inactives about 90 minutes before the 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Jaguars' DJ Chark: Sidelined for another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chark (ankle) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

The Jaguars' pass-catching corps is banged up heading into the team's Week 6 matchup with the Lions. In addition to Chark, tight end Tyler Eifert (neck) also sat out a second straight practice, while Laviska Shenault (hamstring) took part in some capacity Thursday after missing Wednesday's session. Chark could still put himself in position to play Sunday by returning to practice in some fashion Friday, but his status for the game appears dicey at the moment.
