Jaguars’ D.J. Chark off to historically great start, leads all second-year wide receivers in PFF grade through five weeks

After losing newly signed franchise quarterback Nick Foles to injury just 11 snaps into the 2019 NFL season, Jacksonville Jaguars fans would have been well within their rights to lose all hope about the team’s offense … again.

After all, the incoming replacement, sixth-round Washington State product Gardner Minshew, wasn’t particularly the talk of the town heading into the draft; nor was he the talk of the town after a preseason performance which earned an overall grade of 61.5, 45th among 79 qualifying players at the position. Making the situation a bit bleaker, their rookie signal-caller was to be coupled with a starting receiving corps that had just one single-season overall grade above 70.
