Well, it was better than last year but things still did not go as planned as the Detroit Lions‘ comeback fell short against the Philadelphia Eagles as the Eagles escaped Ford Field with a 38-35 Week 1 win.

Detroit Lions WR DJ Chark Named ‘Bounce-Back’ Candidate
ESPN released an article in which they choose one ‘bounce-back’ candidate for each NFL team and then it came to the Detroit Lions, DJ Chark got the nod.
DJ Chark, WR
PFF grade in 2021: 65.9
What went wrong: Chark played just three games for the Jaguars last season after he broke his left ankle in late September. The Lions picked him up in free agency. Chark, who made the Pro Bowl in 2019 when he caught 74 passes and had eight touchdowns, now has a fresh start with the Lions. — PFF
Outlook for 2022: Chark, now healthy and still only 25 years old, has turned heads in training camp with a string of impressive plays off his connection with quarterback Jared Goff. This season could make or break both of their careers. Detroit has Chark listed as the No. 1 receiver on its unofficial depth chart, largely due to his deep-threat ability. — Eric Woodyard
Nation, do you think DJ Chark can emerge as a big threat for the Detroit Lions or do you think he will be a one and done?
