2021 Fantasy Outlook
Coming off a huge year at LSU — 126-84-1,780-20 — with 21.2 YPC and 14.1 YPT, Chase opted out in 2020, but it didn’t seem to cost him. In fact, he boosted his stock at his pro day with a 4.38 40, 41-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump. The Bengals drafted him fifth overall, pairing Chase with his former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow. At 6-0, 201, Chase has only average size, but he’s bigger and heavier than most burners, and his athleticism will present a problem for cornerbacks tasked with checking him downfield. Don’t expect a massive target share out of the gate, however, as the 6-4, 215-pound Tee Higgins had a strong rookie year in 2020, and slot-man Tyler Boyd will see his looks. Still, the Bengals have no reliable tight ends, so they could rank top-five in cumulative WR targets for a third straight year under head coach Zac Taylor. Burrow, with whom Chase already has an excellent rapport, is expected to be ready for the start of the year. Read Past Outlooks

Falls victim to game script
WRCincinnati Bengals
November 28, 2021
Chase caught all three of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 41-10 blowout win over the Steelers.
ANALYSIS
The Bengals went up big in the first half on the backs of Joe Mixon (165 yards and two touchdowns) and a dominant defensive performance (interception return for a touchdown). When Joe Burrow was asked to drop back and pass, he favored Tee Higgins (six receptions for 114 yards and a score) on the side of the field that star defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick wasn't operating in. Chase has seen his production dip over the last four contests as defenses appear to be focusing more on the breakout star (38 yards per game over that span). Cincinnati may need to utilize its top receiving option more heavily in an upcoming matchup against the Chargers' high-powered offense next Sunday.
