Per the Bengals’ official website, WR coach Troy Walters “envisions” WR Ja’Marr Chase playing in the slot more this season. "I'm cool in the slot,” Chase said. “I just need more reps in it. It doesn't really matter to me. It's just another way for me to get the ball.” According to Pro Football Focus, Chase spent 15.8% of his snaps in the slot as a rookie. Unsurprisingly, he posted an elite 2.49 yards per route run from the inside alignment. The 22-year-old remains a top-5 fantasy WR.
Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase tallied 5 catches, 61 yards and 1 score in Sunday’s win over Buffalo. That makes 5 straight games with a TD for the former LSU star. Chase scored in the 1st quarter on blown coverage. Later, he appeared to score in the back of the end zone, but upon review, refs determined that he didn’t complete the catch. Chase now hits the road to face Kansas City in the AFC Championship game.
Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase logged 7 catches on 13 targets for 60 yards, leading all Bengals receivers in those categories in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. Chase also found the end zone in Week 15, in addition to teammates Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, and TE Mitchell Wilcox. Both Boyd and Higgins wound up with 5 catches apiece. While no one besides Chase cracked the 50-yard mark (Boyd with 35 yards, Higgins with 33), fantasy managers who rolled out these Bengals WRs had their days saved by TDs. Next week brings a tough matchup against the Patriots, who rank 7th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs. Still consider Chase a top-5 option, but Higgins is more of a low-end WR2, and Boyd a flex candidate in Week 16.
Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase had an understandably busy day in Sunday's win over the Browns, with Tyler Boyd leaving early and Tee Higgins limited by an injury he suffered in pregame warmups. Chase claimed 45.5% of Bengals targets (15), 55.6% of receptions (10) and 49.8% of receiving yards (119). Chase also snagged 1 of QB Joe Burrow's 2 TD throws. The other went to WR Trenton Irwin, on a 45-yard flea flicker. Cincinnati visits the Buccaneers in Week 15.
Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase returned from 4 games off for a hip injury to lead the Bengals in targets (8), receptions (7) and receiving yards (97) in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. Chase now gets his 1st matchup this year with a Browns team that limited him to 6-49 receiving among 13 targets in their lone full meeting last year. (Chase played just 9 snaps in the regular-season finale, when Cincinnati benched most starters after clinching.)
Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. We haven’t heard anything about Chase’s role today. There’s certainly a chance that he’s on some type of snap count in his 1st action since Week 7, but Chase would still carry plenty of upside even then. You’d need to be loaded at WR to consider benching him in this matchup.
