22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR

2019 Fantasy Outlook
A former LSU Tiger, Chark was selected in the second round of the 2018 draft and proceeded to be a non-factor in an unproductive offense for most of the season. He missed five games with a quad injury and had 14 catches for 174 yards, looking very much like a receiver relying on raw talent rather than technical skill. At 6-4, 198 pounds, and with a 4.34 40-yard dash and 40-inch vertical, the 22-year-old still possesses elite tools, but needs to take a significant step forward this offseason in order to utilize them. Marqise Lee and Dede Westbrook will begin camp as the team's top two wide receivers, but beyond that it's more of a crapshoot. Chark has a realistic chance to secure the No. 3 role as he competes with Chris Conley and Keelan Cole. The upgrade to Nick Foles at quarterback should help Chark from both a developmental and production standpoint, but at this point it's difficult to call him a potential sleeper given his struggles last year.

Zero catches Week 17
WRJacksonville Jaguars
December 31, 2018
Chark didn't catch either of his targets in Sunday's loss to the Texans. He totaled 14 receptions for 174 yards in 11 games this season.
ANALYSIS
Chark missed the previous five games with the quadriceps issue, so it was good to see him return to the field, though he only played 12 offensive snaps. The heavier workload he had been seeing prior to the injury dissipated, with Keelan Cole remaining as the team's No. 3 wide receiver for the season finale. The rookie second-round pick overall had an uneventful debut campaign, as he failed to make much of an impact on an unproductive offense. A full offseason with the team should help the 22-year-old's development significantly, as his raw technical skills as a receiver showed when on the field. At 6-4 and 198 pounds, Chark has the physical tools to be an explosive downfield threat, but the Jaguars still need to find a solution to their quarterback situation.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 6-4, 198-pound receiver out of LSU was a potential first-round pick in April's draft, but the Jaguars were able to snatch him late in the second round. Chark had a dominant combine with a 4.34 40-yard dash, 40-inch vertical and 129-inch broad jump after posting 40 catches for 874 yards (21.9 average) and three touchdowns for the Tigers in 2017. The 21-year-old seems unlikely to take on a high-volume role due to the Jaguars run-heavy offense and depth of talent at wide receiver, but his potential as a big-play threat could have Chark making significant contributions in his rookie season.
