D.J. Chark Jr.
WR - JAC
Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark has reportedly added seven pounds of muscle after being challenged to get "big and strong" by new Jaguars' head coach Urban Meyer this offseason.
Chark was approached by Meyer this offseason and challenged to get bigger and stronger to overcome his poor play during the 2020 season. Meyer went on to say, "He's a big guy that played little last year, and that can't happen." Chark accepted the challenge and has since added seven pounds of muscle onto his massive 6'4" frame, which will allow him to win more one-on-one matchups along the perimeter. The talented wideout enters his fourth season with a fresh start and a revamped physique and vows to never return to how he played in 2020, stating, "That's definitely the floor for me the rest of my career. I won't be going back there." Chark is currently WR30 according to the latest FantasyPros' ECR, which is phenomenal value considering the upside he flashed in 2019 with 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. Trevor Lawrence will only enhance Chark's value on the field, making him one of my favorite wide receiver prospects in redraft leagues.
D.J Chark said to James Palmer that he's gained 10 pounds this offseason (up to 210) and that his times have gotten faster.
Palmer added that incoming HC Urban Meyer has stressed the importance of sports performance at length since he arrived. Chark totaled 53 receptions on 93 targets for 706 yards and five touchdowns last season. He'll most notably compete with newly-signed Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault for targets from presumably Trevor Lawrence.
Jaguars WR D.J. Chark Jr. (shin) will not play in Sunday's Week 17 contest against the Colts.
Chark was unabe to practice this week and has been ruled for Sunday's contest against the Colts. Laviska Shenault and Keelan Cole will be QB Mike Glennon's top targets for Week 17. Chark finishes the 2020 campaign with 53 receptions on 93 targets for 706 yards and five touchdowns over 13 games.
Jaguars wideout D.J. Chark Jr. (shin) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice.
This is back-to-back "DNPs" for Chark, who seems questionable at best for playing in Week 17. Mike Glennon will be under center against the Colts.
Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (shin) didn't practice on Wednesday.
Chark was able to play in Week 16 but the Jaguars could elect to rest him with nothing to play for this weekend. Laviska Shenault would operate as Mike Glennon's top receiver if Chark can't go against the Colts.
