23-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. 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.

Quiet in finale
WRJacksonville Jaguars
December 30, 2019
Chark caught four of five targets for 34 yards during Sunday's 38-20 win over the Colts.
ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old was unable to find much involvement downfield in the season finale, but the production was just enough to put him over 1,000 yards for the season. Chark finished 2019 with 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games, a major jump forward after catching only 14 passes as a rookie last year. The 2018 second-round pick was one of the more productive wideouts in the league through Week 8 with 660 yards and six touchdowns, but Jacksonville's offensive struggles in the second half brought his numbers back down to earth. Regardless, Chark is primed to enter 2020 as the Jaguars' No. 1 wide receiver next season, no matter what the team does for its coach and quarterback.

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.
