D.J. Chark would come at a discount for the Chicago Bears

After his second season in the NFL which came in 2019, DJ Chark was starting to become a household name. That sophomore season saw Chark pile up over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns on 73 receptions.

Chark’s third season saw a bit of a dip in production, but it’s tough to see consisten numbers as a receiver when your quarterback play might be the worst in the NFL. He caught 53 passes for 706 yards and five scores.

This season, Chark had two touchdowns in his first three games of the year and was averaging 22.0 yards per reception before suffering a broken ankle in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals. The injury landed him on iR and ended his season.

With the Jaguars likely seeing a bunch of action in free agency and the draft this coming year, building around Trevor Lawrence, there is no guarantee he will be back in Jacksonville. Chark is a heck of a deep threat and would give Fields quite the pairing with Darnell Mooney. Fields loves to throw the ball deep, and Chark has the speed to beat defensive backs deep.
