Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark is having a breakout season. In 10 games, the second-year receiver has 51 receptions for 796 yards and eight touchdowns. Chark’s eight touchdown receptions are tied with Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones Jr. for the most in the NFL.
While Jacksonville has had some struggles this season, the second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft has been one of the bright spots for the Jaguars in 2019.
“He just keeps getting better,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said about Chark on Wednesday. “He’s wherever he is in receptions and yardage, and he has eight touchdowns for us this year, so he’s really playing really well. He’s big; he’s strong, he’s fast. He can get the contested balls; he can catch the ball over the middle, run, score. So, he’s doing a lot of things very well.”
According to Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles, Chark has a shot at the Pro Bowl.
“You have to think, you know, his statistics and how he’s played, he’s among the best in the league right now,” Foles said on Wednesday. “We obviously have to, as a team, finish this year strong, but he’s heading towards being deserving of that nod.”
Chark most definitely has a shot at the Pro Bowl, especially if he continues to put up the numbers. Foles has thrown three touchdown passes this season, which have all went to Chark, so these two might be building something, which could lead to Chark having more success in 2019.
