FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

D.J. Chark (chest, back) downgraded to out for Jaguars’ Thursday night matchup with Dolphins

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark (chest, back) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins.

What It Means:

Chark was reportedly "trending upward" for Thursday's game but it turns out he won't be able to suit up on the short week. Chark is fourth on the team in wide receiver targets (7) through two games. Keelan Cole and multi-position rookie Laviska Shenault figure to take on more targets in place of Chark versus a Dolphins secondary that is allowing the seventh-most passing yards per game (276.5) this season.

numberFire's models expect Cole to lead the Jaguars with 7.7 targets and Shenault is second with 6.1 targets. Cole is projected for 11.2 FanDuel points and has a salary of $11,000 for the Thursday-only slate. Shenault is expected to score 10.7 FanDuel points and has a Thursday salary of $7,500. The Dolphins have the second-worst pass defense in the NFL, per numberFire's analytics.
