4. WR DJ Chark
It’s hard to call Chark a huge free agent bust, given that he only signed a cheap one-year deal with the Lions last offseason. But this season has not gone well, with limited production and struggles to connect with Jared Goff before and after missing six games with an ankle injury.
Chark had a larger snap share on Thanksgiving Day against the Buffalo Bills (52 snaps, a 73 percent share), in his second game back from his injury, with two catches for 16 yards and a touchdown.
Chark needs to have healthy run of solid productivity over the final six games, starting with a “revenge game” against his former team the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13. The odds he’s back in Detroit next year feel slim, but he can bolster his stock upon hitting the open market again with a strong finish to the season.
