3 Bold Predictions: Jaguars face the Colts
Big day for DJ Chark
In his second season in the league, DJ Chark has become a top target in the Jaguars offense. He has also become a true No. 1 wide receiver for a team that has struggled to replace Allen Robinson in that role the past two seasons.
For Chark, who needs 26 yards to reach 1,000 for the season, it has been a solid season – one he hopes to build on in the future while playing here in Jacksonville. I predict the former LSU star gets his 1,000 yards early in the game on Sunday and then takes off to have a huge game.
With running back Leonard Fournette listed as doubtful for the game, per the Jaguars PR department, the team could become one-dimensional, allowing Chark to have at least 150 yards in receptions on the day.
"“I can’t say enough great things about DJ,” Jaguars offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said, adding of the 1,000-yard mark, “Obviously, it would be great. That would be the benchmark for receivers, is obviously that 1,000 yards. We’re not oblivious to that all.”"
Look for Gardner Minshew to look for his favorite target early and often as they try to stretch the field and challenge the Colts secondary throughout the afternoon.
