Week 1 vs. GB
Receiving: 1 / 23 / 0 on 4 targets
Backup TE Desmond Clark had only one catch before leaving the game in the third quarter with a back injury. He remains a distant second option behind Greg Olsen even when he is at full strength.
Week 4 vs. DET
Receiving: 2 / 8 / 0 on 2 targets
Backup tight end Desmond Clark had two short catches in the second half as he minimally contributed to the offense as far as personally moving the ball. Clark's main value to the Bears is as a blocking TE and he remains well behind Greg Olsen on the depth chart.
Week 6 vs. ATL
Receiving: 3 / 32 / 0 on 4 targets
The well respected veteran turned in his best game of the season thus far in week 6. He made a terrific diving catch inside the 1 on a rollout by Jay Cutler. He also chipped in with a 24 yd catch in the 3rd quarter. Clark remains a better NFL player than fantasy football player and barring an injury to Olsen he is not worth rostering.
Week 8 vs. CLE
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 4 targets
Clark was targeted all over the field, but most of his targets were rushed or were one of the few inaccurate throws from Jay Cutler.
Week 10 vs. SF
Receiving: 1 / 7 / 0 on 2 targets
Backup tight end Desmond Clark caught on short pass early in Week 10 over the middle for a short gain. He was later sidelined with a neck injury and replaced on the field by third string TE Kellen Davis. Even when healthy Clark does not see enough targets to have any fantasy value.
Week 16 vs. MIN
Receiving: 5 / 39 / 1 on 7 targets
Clark functioned as a good secondary receiver, getting open when rookie Jasper Brinkley picked the wrong guy to cover in the end zone, and making sure-handed catches when targeted elsewhere on the field. He didn't do much after the catch, but you could tell that he was exactly where Jay Cutler expected him to be.
Week 17 vs. DET
Receiving: 2 / 7 / 1 on 2 targets
Desmond Clark only had two catches, but the second was for a TD midway through the fourth quarter. With first and goal from the 1, Clark released on his block, and cut to the outside of the end zone. He was wide open and Cutler hit him for the easy TD. Kellen Davis was also open to that side of the field, but Cutler went to Clark for the score.
