Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. It’s unclear how big a factor that shoulder will be, but Chase obviously comes with more risk than usual in Week 17 fantasy lineups. See where he lands in the Week 17 WR Rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that there's "optimism" that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) will play vs. the Chiefs today. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Chase "likely" to play. He'll go through a pregame workout before a final decision is made. We won't get Cincinnati's inactives until a little before 3 pm ET, so fantasy owners hoping to start Chase should have a replacement from the late games rostered as insurance.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Chiefs. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. “We’ll see,” HC Zac Taylor said on Friday when asked about Chase’s availability. We won’t get Cincinnati’s inactives until a little before 3 pm ET on Sunday, but there will likely be updates on Chase between now and then.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said he'd be surprised if Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) played against the Chiefs this weekend. Chase is dealing with a 2-4 week injury, according to Rapoport, and has missed just one game so far. We'll continue to monitor Chase's progress but are removing him from the Week 17 Rankings for now. His absence would be good news/bad news for WR Tee Higgins, who would get a target boost but also see more of Chiefs stud CB L'Jarius Sneed.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. He was spotted stretching with the team and getting in some work on a rehab field. Chase's availability for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs remains up in the air. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins secured 5 of 8 targets for 140 receiving yards, including an 80-yard TD, in Week 16’s loss vs. the Steelers. After a very rocky start to 2023, Higgins has come alive of late, logging three consecutive games with at least 60 receiving yards and a trio of scores over the past two weeks. The veteran’s fantasy value in Week 16 will be somewhat contingent upon whether or not teammate Ja’Marr Chase (shoulder) is able to return to the lineup. Regardless, Higgins will face a stout Chiefs defense (seventh-toughest WR matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed) and should be thought of somewhere within the WR2/WR3 range.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 16 vs. the Steelers. The star wideout suffered a sprained AC joint against the Vikings last week and is expected to be handled carefully by the team, so this news shouldn't come as much of a shock to fantasy managers. Without Chase in tow, there'll be increased opportunities for fellow WRs Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd to stand out against a Steelers secondary that'll likely be missing their top safeties (namely Minkah Fitzpatrick) on Saturday. See where the Bengals duo sits in our current WR rankings.

Insider Jordan Schultz confirms that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) won't play vs. the Steelers on Saturday. Schultz adds that "the team is optimistic about his prognosis moving forward" but will "proceed cautiously." There's certainly a chance that Chase also misses Week 17, although he's worth keeping stashed on fantasy benches until we know more.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase is "likely to miss some time" with his shoulder injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The expectation is that he is sidelined for this week’s game against the Steelers, and it could extend beyond that, as well," Rapoport adds. Chase is worth keeping stashed on fantasy rosters in case he makes it back for Week 17, but fantasy owners should plan on being without him in Week 16. Chase's absence frees up targets for WRs Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

The Bengals are "bracing for Ja'Marr Chase to miss time" with his shoulder injury, according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. Chase was originally scheduled to get an MRI on Sunday, but his shoulder was too sore. He'll get that MRI tomorrow. We should get an update on his status then.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase is "day-to-day" with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, HC Zac Taylor said Sunday. It sounds like Chase has a chance to be ready for this coming Saturday's game vs. the Steelers. We'll track his status throughout the coming week.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase suffered a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder in Saturday's win over the Vikings. Chase is scheduled for additional testing, but "the hope is that maybe he won't miss any time," according to Garafolo. We'll look for more details on Chase's status and track his practice participation this coming week.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase suffered a shoulder injury in the second half of Saturday's game vs. the Vikings and will not return. He was shown on the sidelines with what looked like a sling underneath his hoodie. We'll look for an update on Chase's injury and his status for Week 16 and beyond.

Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase (ankle) is not listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He was a full participant in Thursday’s practice and should be ready for his usual role vs. the Vikings on Saturday afternoon.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirmed earlier in the day that Chase is expected to be ready for Saturday's game vs. the Vikings. We'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow, but he can stay penciled into Week 15 fantasy lineups for now.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's injury report. Cincinnati only held a walkthrough, and Chase was out there with the team, according to ESPN's Ben Baby. It sounds like Chase should be fine for Saturday afternoon's game vs. the Vikings, but we'll update his status again tomorrow.
