Jacksonville Jaguars WR D.J. Chark is active and will play in Week 16 vs. the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Chark was listed as questionable to play due to an ankle injury but will be able to return from his one-game absence. The rookie wideout returns just in time for a great matchup vs. the Falcons secondary, which allows 267.1 receiving yards per game this season.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Jacksonville Jaguars WR D.J. Chark

So Chark is healthy and therefore you should be good to roll him out in your championship game. This is a great game environment for Chark. Even if the Falcons do a decent job limiting the Jaguars, if Atlanta’s offense performs, the Jags will have to throw the ball. Chark is their best overall option in the passing game and should be targeted frequently. I think in deeper fantasy football leagues you are probably playing Chark today and even shallow leagues he’s a good FLEX option or WR2.
