Former LSU wide receiver and Jacksonville Jaguars star DJ Chark has had an eventful NFL season so far.
In just his third pro year, Chark has quietly become one of the league’s more dependable receivers, even on an offense ranked 25th in the NFL. He has 33 catches for 437 yards and four TDs for 1-7 Jacksonville.
On Sunday, Chark had his third game of the season with seven or more catches and second time in the last three games. He had seven receptions for 146 yards, including a 73-yard TD in the Jags’ 27-25 loss to the Texans.
The performance came after an open date when Chark, 24, married his college sweetheart Chantelle. The pair had been dating since Chark was 17 years old, and the two got engaged back in May.
