2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
It's been a few years since his lone impactful season in the NFL, but the Lions adding Chark early in free agency on a one-year deal was a solid move. In 2019, Chark's 2nd season, he flashed elite ball skills and talent for a rising Jags squad. He went over 1,000 yards and scored 8 touchdowns, and looked to be a core piece on offense for years to come. But a down year in 2020, and a broken ankle in Week 3 of 2021 coincided with the implosion of the franchise, and the Jags moved on. The former 2nd rounder joins a receiver room in Detroit that's certainly gotten bigger, but remains unproven. Chark did score in two of the three games he played in last year, and his size/speed combination is something Detroit sorely lacked last season. In a different situation I'd be excited about the fantasy value Chark could fetch, but with Detroit likely to be in the bottom half of the league in pass attempts, and suddenly with several mouths to feed, I'm just not sure the volume will be there for consistent production.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury D'Andre Swift, WR Josh Reynolds listed as Questionable
Amon-Ra St. Brown off the Injury Report
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 21, 3:48 pm

Detroit Lions
Lions' WR Amon-Ra St. Brown is off the injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys, and RB D'Andre Swift and WR Josh Reynolds both are listed as questionable. Lions also ruled out WR D.J. Chark, DL Charles Harris, S Ifeatu Melifonwu, T Matt Nelson and CB Bobby Price. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Swift got in limited practices all three days this week while Reynolds only practiced on a limited basis Friday. We'll likely get better clarification on Swift this weekend.


Injury Lions downgrade D.J. Chark, Out for Week 4
Detroit struggling for playmakers

FFToday's Take: The Lions are heading into their Week 4 matchup against the Seahawks without D'Andre Swift, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Chark. Their projected starting three receivers will be Josh Reynolds, Kalif Raymond and Quintez Cephus. Reynolds and TE T.J. Hockenson should get the most looks from Jared Goff.


Injury Amon-Ra St. Brown, D'Andre Swift, not expected to play
Ankle injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 30, 11:15 am

Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions are expected to be without their leading receiver and leading rusher when they host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Ford Field. Receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and running back D’Andre Swift are all-but-officially ruled out because of ankle injuries, while Swift is also tending to a sprained shoulder. (MLive.com)

FFToday's Take: The Lions will be testing their depth when they take on the Seahawks in Week 4. Jamaal Williams is expected to get the start at running back and we should see a little bit of Craig Reynolds sprinkled in. D.J. Chark (ankle) and Josh Reynolds should be the main targets on the outside and we could see a little more work for TE T.J. Hockenson this week.


Injury Amon-Ra St. Brown, D'Andre Swift miss practice Thursday
Ankle injury for ASB
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 29, 4:03 pm

Detroit Lions
#Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) and RB D'Andre Swift (ankle+ shoulder) missed practice for a second straight day. Pro Bowl G Jonah Jackson (finger), WR D.J. Chark (ankle) and K Austin Seibert (groin) also were out. (Ari Meirov on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We're expecting Swift to miss this week based on comments by head coach Dan Campbell earlier in the week. The Lions are dealing with multiple injuries at wide receiver and could be depleted at the position in their matchup against the Seahawks. Josh Reynolds may have some Flex value if ASB sits.
