2020 Fantasy Outlook
Despite doing little in 11 games as a rookie, Chark broke out in Year 2, making the most of his 118 targets - 13.8 YPC, 8.5 YPT - for a below-average passing team. At 6-4, 198, and with blazing 4.34 speed, a 40-inch vertical leap and 129-inch broad jump, Chark's physical tools are approaching Randy Moss territory. While he had only one catch of 40-plus yards, Chark caught 17 for 20-plus (T-9th), and there's little doubt he's fast enough to stretch the field. He didn't see a ton of work in the red zone (15 total targets, six from inside the 10) but still scored eight touchdowns and had only four drops all year. With Nick Foles in Chicago, it should be second-year quarterback Gardner Minshew's team all offseason, and he should get better and improve his rapport with the Jags' top receiver. The Jaguars drafted bruiser Laviska Shenault in the second round, and Dede Westbrook is still around, but they're more likely to compete with one another and Chris Conley than cut into Chark's secured role. Finally, the Jaguars offense should improve under new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, who hasn't had a young receiver with this type of size and speed since he coached A.J. Green in Cincinnati.

Fails to produce in shootout

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

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
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. Dede Westbrook is locked in for regular snaps, but beyond that it's more of a crapshoot for the Jaguars at wide receiver. Chark has a realistic chance to secure the No. 2 or 3 role as he competes with Chris Conley, Marquise Lee 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.
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.
